So after a CNY long weekend and all the massive feasting, it’s about time that we round up our festive mood and get back to the grind right? Wrong!
In fact if you ask me or JahBella, its time for us to look forward to the next holiday…the March School Holidays! 🙂 And there is no better reason to look forward to the March School Holidays then the fact that Disney on Ice will be back in Singapore!!!!
We brought Jah to Disney on Ice two years back and he was completely enthralled by the smooth skating, larger than life Disney characters. This year is going to be that much more exciting since both kiddos will be able to catch the Magical Ice Festival together and finally meet some of their favourite characters.
In fact Bella is totally thrilled that she will finally be able to meet Elsa and Anna from Disney’s Frozen! (I really should have recorded her screaming “my favourite”!!!! when I told her about meeting them :p).
And in case you are wondering how interesting can ice-skating princesses be, for the boys. Well Jah is really looking forward to seeing the “Beast” from Beauty and the Beast in action and some “crabby” and “floundering” moves from Sebastian and Flounder from The Little Mermaid.
Come on! Its Disney after all which means there is something for everyone! Trust me…even for the adults 😉
