It’s time for infinite fun and madness! Celebrating its 8th anniversary this year, award-winning indoor family centre, KidZania Kuala Lumpur is committed to making the city a place of infinite possibilities, one that will inspire and challenge children to dream big.

Both activities are a form of sensory play to develop and improve their gross and fine motor skills.

Since then we’ve seen increased visitors year on year, making us a much sought-after family destination in the country. We have also been certified as a co-curricular partner with the Ministry of Education and worked with numerous industry partners and collaborators over the years, for only one goal – to ultimately equip children with an understanding of the real world while empowering them with a variety of development skills, from creativity, financial literacy, critical thinking and the ability to dream and dream big!



“Most children have dreams of what they want to be when they grow up. It is so important to promote that positivity in encouraging kids to chase after the path they dream of. We always desire to motivate the children to dream big! At KidZania, we advocate the ‘Learn Life Today’ approach by offering real-life job experiences in different industries to develop important life skills and values. We are committed to help the kids broaden their horizons, recognising and identifying the path or things they are good at. We hope to turn every child’s dream into reality at KidZania,” concluded Shahrul.

Paul Immigrations Reviews: Apply for Singapore PR as a Family

You’ve lived in Singapore for a while now and decided that you’re ready to apply for permanent residency. Why wouldn’t you be? The Lion City has so much to offer that thousands rush to get to the forefront of it all and become a Permanent Resident (PR). Moreover, for foreigners living in Singapore, permanent residency is the only gateway towards citizenship.

That said, as the head of your family, you might feel a little hesitant about applying for it for everyone else. Your reservations are understandable. After all, becoming a PR involves more than just extra paperwork. Permanent residency is a commitment, an agreement to stay and contribute to the Republic’s growth in exchange for benefits that are second only to Citizens.

All PR hopefuls have the option to apply for the status on their own. Singapore offers several PR schemes, some of which allow you to acquire the status as a family, but none compels you to include your dependants in your application. Instead, the schemes below only extends this as an option to each PR applicant:

● Family Scheme
● Professionals, Technical Personnel and Skilled Workers (PTS) Scheme
● Global Investor Programme

If you do meet the requirements for these schemes, you should seriously consider including your loved ones in your Singapore PR application.



Why You Should Apply For Singapore PR as a Family
Here are some reasons why you should cast your doubts aside to apply for PR as a family.
Applying for PR as a family would combine your strengths in an application, rather than depend on your merits alone. The Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) assesses PR applications holistically, which means that they will look at your overall potential to contribute to and integrate into society.

Acquiring the status together, as opposed to leaving your loved ones out, also shows your intent to sink roots in the city-state. Ultimately, those with families are less likely to move once they have chosen a home, especially if they are all Permanent Residents. By contrast, PR applicants who exclude their dependants will raise red flags since the authorities will question why they have chosen to do so.

When you apply for PR collectively, your entire family can reap the benefits of permanent residency together. For countless parents, few better places exist for families to settle down and raise their children than Singapore. The Lion City is renowned across the world for its soaring standards of living, including its widely accessible high-quality education, healthcare and housing.

Is Your Family Eligible for Singapore PR?

Now that you know why you should apply for PR as a family, start looking into your combined PR eligibility. You can do this by determining whether you fit into any of the following PR schemes that allow you to include your dependants in your application:

1. Family Scheme
This scheme only allows either a Singapore Citizen or PR to apply for PR on behalf of their spouse and children. However, note that your children need to meet the following additional criteria:

● Unmarried
● Under the age of 21
● Born or legally adopted within the context of a legal marriage


2. PTS Scheme
Between you and your spouse, there has to be at least one holder of an Employment Pass, Personalised Employment Pass, EntrePass or S Pass. This work pass holder will be the primary PR applicant. Additionally, your children need to meet the following additional criteria, identical to those of the Family Scheme:

● Unmarried
● Under the age of 21
● Born or legally adopted within the context of a legal marriage



Paul Immigrations Reviews
If all of you do meet any of the above criteria in your choice of scheme, you might now wonder how to get Singapore PR as a family. If you do not have a clue, fret not. Paul Immigrations can be of great assistance to guide you at every step of the process. Here is how the immigration consultancy firm do so:

1. Profiling Through the Phone
An immigration consultant (IC) would get in touch with you to find out if you and/or your loved ones are eligible to apply for Singapore PR. A series of profiling questions would be asked and if you or your loved one is eligible, the IC would arrange an appointment with you.

2. Meeting the Immigration Consultant
During the in person meeting, the IC would verify the information that you have shared over the telephone conversation. Your actual work pass, marriage certificate and children’s birth certification may be requested by the IC for verification purposes. It is also during this meeting that you will be able to better evaluate your chances of getting the PR status approved.

3. Compiling Your Documents
Upon deciding that you would like to proceed to engage the services provided by Paul Immigrations, your profile would then be passed to the Immigration specialist(IS) team. They would guide you and assist in compiling the documents required for the PR application. They will also ensure that your submission package adhere to the requirements of the PR application.

4. Crafting the Cover Letter
Apart from preparing your submission package for the application, the team will also prepare a cover letter to help highlight the contributions you have done, strengths and more, to better the chances of getting the approval. With thousands of applicants vying for the coveted status, it is not only about how you would blend in with the community, but also how you stand out amongst the crowd of PR hopefuls in the best light.


5. Applying for PR Online with Guidance
Finally, you may apply for PR online once all the necessary documents are in order. As the application starts with logging in to ICA’s e-PR system with your SingPass, the team will not be able to submit on your behalf. However, they will be able to guide you in person or over a phone call, with step by step instructions till you hit the submit button.

The entire process with the team would take approximately 1-2 months depending on how quick the correspondences are and another 4-6 months for ICA to evaluate your application. To get in touch with Paul Immigrations, feel free to fill up their enquiry form here.

Tealive, a home-grown lifestyle tea brand formed in 2017 has since established itself as a household name, achieving rapid growth in less than two years. The brand currently operates over 450 outlets across the world. Besides Malaysia, Tealive is present in China, Vietnam, Brunei, Myanmar, Australia, the Philippines, the United Kingdom and now, in KidZania Kuala Lumpur!

“We’re delighted to have Tealive, one of Malaysia’s largest beverage chains and experts in their own right, partner with us to lend industry insight and work hand-in-hand to equip children with vital skill sets for the future such as self-confidence, attention to detail, independence and communication skills,” said Shahrul Nizar Ahmad.

“In this new world driven by advanced technology and gadgets, parents today face a new challenge of keeping their child away from their gadgets. What we offer at KidZania Kuala Lumpur is an avenue for kids to take a step back from all that screen time and experience real life in a fun and engaging way through one-of-a-kind role play activities that expose kids to real world professions and career possibilities,” he added.

The ingredients involved in making the milk tea and pearls are freshly-brewed tea and tapioca starch. All drinks that are prepared in the establishment are also capped at only half-sugar level.

2020 year can still wear white shoes

Good day to dear readers and visitors of my blog. Everyone has got busy lifestyle and there's time that we need to pay attention to our children. Especially a mother, you probably know how tough it is juggling your different responsiblities at work and at home.

Coming towards end of the year soon and we as parents we know that we got to shop new shoes for our children. Sharing is caring, I always want to choose the best for my sons. Therefore important for me choose the school shoes that are light weight and COMFORT to wear. Our children are growing, not just their body, their mind but also their little feet too. Important that we find suitable shoes for them to wear, as you know next year is 2020. Children can still wear White Shoes for year 2020 and it's still my first choice to choose white shoes because I find it more hygiene compare to Black shoes. Next year is the final year of wearing white shoes and my sons too agree to wear for the last year.

My children Sean is gonna be 14 years old, that's FORM 2 next year while his little brother gonna be Standard 3 next year. Sharing is caring, Sean's little brother is wearing shoes model 307-0164 W, which is Extra Light Weight!



Wow2wee website has variety of school shoes, white colors win my heart as white shoes hygiene, reduce the risk of mosquitoes bites, and gives the heat dispersion. When my son's shoes get wet, they are easily dry up too!


As for Sean who is Form 2 next year, he knows that everyone in school most of them are wearing shoes with laces. You can see the photo of shoes below, these are shoes model 307-196W.
The Velcro type available and also the Pallas Jass Star Low Cut Shoe Lace, the shoes rubber insole for better rebound (insole not easy to collapse), it is more comfy and it has New fitting (broader fitting). Don't worry if you are thinking that your son might not fit in, they have sizes up to #13. Sean's wearing the size of #11. I must say I understand that it's not easy to find big size shoes, especially for children who are growing up. Whenever I found the suitable shoes for my children, I would stock up a few pairs. Rain or shine we know that children need to wear their school shoes to school.
Don't worry if you thinking about their sizes and whether the shoes fit or not.
If you like to know the measurement check out https://www.wow2wee.com/w2w-measurement-guide

There will be Christmas ornament and decoration workshops, special Tomte and Swedish maiden meet and greets, Festive dance performances, as well as fun arts and crafts workshops for kids.

The IPC Tack Club
From the humble beginnings when Mutiara Damansara was still an up-and-coming hot spot, the neighbourhood shopping centre has diversified into more than just a shopping destination for the community. It has evolved into an inspirational space for all walks of life to meet, shop, dine, learn and create happy memories together.


This year, in conjunction with its 16th anniversary, IPC Shopping Centre will be extending its relationship with its partners and shoppers through its new loyalty programme called the IPC Tack Club, for shoppers to enjoy so much more rewards and perks from the shopping centre.

“When we adopted the concept ‘So Much More’, we committed ourselves to create market-relevant shopping experiences that fit our consumers' lifestyles. We do this by consistently identifying opportunities to improve the customer journey through new trends that reflect a well-curated mix of retail and dining concepts, as well as a personalised shopping experience. We understand how consumers have become accustomed to digital self-service through their experiences with mobile apps and online retailing. For a loyalty program, offering the ability to accrue, track and redeem rewards or perks in real-time is no longer a distinction — it's an expectation” said Karyn Lim, General Manager of IPC Shopping Centre.


‘Tack’ which means ‘Thank You’ in Swedish will offer customers with perks and rewards for each purchase at the shopping centre. The program will further extend IPC’s successful digital capabilities, following the success of the award-winning Mood Menu feature - to play an active role in shaping shopper’s experience before and after their visits.


She further explained, “From picking up groceries to shopping for clothes, or to a meal at one of the dining outlets here, The IPC Tack Club will allow customers to make the most from their relationship with IPC Shopping Centre. The programme is fuelled with our commitment towards customer experience and will enable us to further sharpen our ability to provide a seamless offering to each one of our customers.


The data-driven loyalty program will officially be available on IPC Shopping Centre’s mobile app on 2 December 2019. The fully digitised programme will require a one-time registration in the mobile app to recognise every membership. Shoppers will only need to scan their digital membership code on the mobile app in future to enjoy gifts with purchase at lower spend.
