Hey there! remember me? I seem to have disappeared for far too long, so much has been happening, play dates, dinner dates, work, work, work, Ramadan and Idul Fitri came and went and my little boy turned TWO (more on this later)… and in all this time I haven’t managed to pick up my camera! Not even ONCE… aaaaaaaah. My soul feels like it has been sucked up! I have been trying to savour the fun moments rather than capture every moment, so only have some terrible phone pics to share with you now.. things got too exhausting to write, too many distractions amongst the fun and to tell you the truth I was hanging to get out of Jakarta to take a breather… (more on that later too) and to revitalise my soul.
At the beginning of the school holidays in Jakarta though, we had a super fun play date with some lovely mummy friends and kids at the Giggle at the Fun Factory at FX Plaza. I haven’t been to this mall in forever.. I used to love going there to visit the Mazee market shops but once they were removed there seemed to be no reason to go there again… until a play date was organised at Giggle Factory. What a great place! Although a little on the pricey side, it was almost glisteningly clean, the toys weren’t held together by tape and falling over like many other indoor play centres in Jakarta… there were clear playing areas for babies and toddlers and then for slightly older kids there was some climbing equipment and swings.. and a super fun indoor water play area to splash about in. It seems to cater for younger kids than at Lollipops etc and that’s probably why all the equipment is in such good condition… no manic kids running around crazily breaking things in excitement of being let loose with their nannies.
So I highly recommend this venue if you want to catch up with mummy friends while the kids play, or of course to spend some time with your precious little ones.. there’s lots to keep them entertained and it’s overall a very sweet place!
I promise not to neglect this page for so long again in future… stay tuned…..
