4 Ways To Help You Learn A New Language Quicker

In Singapore, most of us are bilingual. We can speak English and speak our mother tongue fluently thanks to lessons in school.

But as we grow older, we’d want to learn a third, or fourth language.

Comment vous appelez-vous?
わたしのなまえは かおりです。
你几岁了?

When wanting to learn new languages as adults, most of us turn to language schools, podcasts and Youtube tutorials for assistance.

But there are other fun ways to acquire a new language:

1. Watch movies and drama serials.

This may be the first time in your life when watching television is your homework. Take advantage of the opportunity. Different genres of shows give you different learning opportunities.

In romance shows, between lovers and couples, only the simplest of words are necessary to express your emotions and thoughts, which really fall under the scope of questions like “what’s happening in life”, “how’re you feeling”, “what would you like to do”. The result? Simple, easy to understand language.

On top of that, variety talk shows / game shows are also pretty good to start with. Apart from the occasional joke where the humour might be hard to understand, conversations between the hosts and the guests are usually light, entertaining and simple enough to understand.

2. Watch cartoons

Children’s shows are… meant for children, which means they’d revolve around the basic syntax, grammar, vocabulary and sentence structure, as well as simple storylines. They’d also spend episodes on seasonal festivities and holidays, meaning you get to learn about the country’s culture and all about it in a minimum of 30 mins or more.

3. Listen to music!

Find a few songs (or many!) that you love in your target language, and listen to them frequently. It will help you get accustomed to the tongue’s accent and grammatical structure. It also gives you the opportunity to hear vocabulary words over and over again. And once you know the lyrics, you can…

4. Sing

When you belt out songs in the language you are learning, it gives you a chance to let you use your tongue muscles to practice those accents and new sounds. You can sing in the shower, karaoke, or with new friends, and all these opportunities will do wonders for your pronunciation.

So there you go, try one of these methods and learn a new language today!

 

Family Holidays: Beat the airport!

Planning for your family holidays excitedly? Got your itinerary laid out? Know how to pack your luggage like a pro?

But do you know how to beat your own Singaporeans at your own airport?

Chris Timmons gif Happy Holidays

 

Pack it right

Check with the airline to find out what you can and cannot pack in your luggage to avoid unwanted surprises.

Find out what the baggage allowance is and make sure your carry-on bag meets the stipulated size and weight limits.

If you are carrying any liquids, aerosols and gels (LAGs) on board, they should be in containers no larger than 100ml and packed in a transparent bag no bigger than 1 litre. Medicine, baby milk or food as well as food for specific diets are exempt from these restrictions.

Any large containers of liquids (even if near-empty) should go into your luggage and not your hand luggage.

Mobile phone power packs are not allowed in check-in luggage so put them in your hand luggage. Each passenger is limited to two power packs in their carry-on bags.

Create an in-transit pharmacy: a zippered pouch with products that deal with any and all medical maladies. Include medicines, and a kit stocked with products to combat germs, alleviate ear pressure, fight sudden onset of a cold, cover cuts, and address allergies, mystery rashes, and stomach aches.

Check In Early/Online

A traditional airline check-in requires you to stand in line at the airline’s ticket counter to get your boarding passes. During busy travel times, the lines are often quite long, requiring you to arrive at the airport early and waste time standing in line. When traveling with children, the wait is often boring for them and stressful for the parents. The early check-in process allows you to print your boarding passes online so you aren’t required to stand in long lines at the airport. If you’re checking bags, you can enter the number of bags online and prepay if you choose. You also have the option of using the airline’s curbside baggage drop-off or baggage kiosks that are found in many airports.

If you are one of those that like to watch movies when flying, consider catching a pre-flight movie to cover more ground and catch up with your movie list. There is a free movie theatre located at Terminal 3 and a Fox Movies Premium Channel at Terminal 2. These locations are open 24 hours.

Heads Up

Airlines that offer self-service kiosks at Changi Airport are Singapore Airlines, SilkAir, Jetstar, AirAsia, Air France-KLM, Cathay Pacific Airways, Delta Air Lines, Qantas Airways and United Airlines.

Airlines that offer mobile check-in at Changi Airport are Singapore Airlines, SilkAir, Jetstar, Tigerair, Cathay Pacific Airways and selected AirAsia flights.

Public Transport

Most toddlers love the novelty of travelling by train, bus and boat, so ditch the hire car and use public transport where possible. Plus it reduces your frustration of having to remember where you parked your car and what not.

Carry lots of small bills

You’ll probably need them for luggage carts, vending machines, and tips (extra small people = additional luggage = needing more help from bellmen). Open your wallet for anything else relatively inexpensive that might make the trip easier. That includes but is not limited to: priority boarding, checked bags, and airline seats with extra legroom.

Simplest Hack To Stop Baby Fights

Getting in the car with any kid can easily become an experiment in patience, but hopping in the car with triplets can be a nightmare. Especially if they’re all two years old. So baby fights will occur and you’d scratch your head wondering how to stop baby fights.

Stop Baby Fights

GORGEOUS Baby Rooms You Need To See

We stumbled upon Houzz, a website and online community about architecture, interior design and decorating, landscape design and home improvement. The Houzz platform and mobile apps feature photos, articles, product recommendations, and a user forum. The company was founded in 2009 and is based in Palo Alto, California. After scrolling around Houzz, we found plenty of gorgeous baby rooms we are eager to share!

Sky blue with tiny touches of gold mixed with white, along with that giant ship wheel and a boat makes us remember the famous proverb, “A Smooth Sea Never Made A Skilled Sailor” and if you’re raising your son to take the hardships of life, it probably could start in this sea-riously beautiful, gorgeous baby room.

Baby Martim Room

If you’re short of space, there are gorgeous baby rooms out there that you can follow – like this room! A little desk in the corner of the room can serve as a space for you to work while your baby sleeps, and a sofa bed can mean a place to put up a guest for one night. The striking patterns make parenting a little easier for the first few months – at least on the eye.

Blue nursery by Four Walls and a Roof

This simply designed baby room gives your baby and you a cosy space to spend time together, all within four walls and one roof.

Kids Bedrooms

The pink polka dotted curtains made this room one of the more adorable, gorgeous baby rooms. It’s hard not to feel overwhelmed by the gush of sweetness here, especially when you’re cradling your baby girl.

South Miami

Shutters fit almost seamlessly into every decor, and the patterned wallpaper along with all the pink made this feel like a baby room a baby girl could grow up in and love.

Designing gorgeous baby rooms take work and you might be thinking of yours right now. Did these ideas help?

Baby Shower Cupcakes

There are many ways to celebrate baby showers. Some opt to have a grand celebration, others opt for quieter, more homely affairs. Some opt for dessert tables with large, customised cakes, others prefer a home baked cake and still others prefer cupcakes and lighter refreshments.

Wondering what baby shower cupcakes to serve to your hungry guests? Here you go.

retro-vibe-babyshowercupcakes
The retro vibe is strong with these cupcakes, what with a simple, traditional design and a vintage cupcake stand to match?

If you’re using cream cheese frosting, the tangy cream cheese frosting breaks down the sweetness a little bit and so your guests will find it a perfect combination!

Another fun way to add decor to your cupcakes is through the use of cupcake toppings, which can be purchased easily, or even hand made.

Not surprisingly, these rainbow funfetti cakes, cupcakes and cookies are extremely popular with kids and a lot of people have fond memories of enjoying them at parties. Get the recipe here.

Make your party a high stepping one with these baby shower cupcakes that feature tiny footprints!

You can buy these feet icing toppings from Etsy as well.

Baby Shower Cupcakes

These adorable cupcakes topped with fondant buttons would be a good option for an experienced baker to bring to the shower. The recipe notes that the buttons take time to make and dry, so plan ahead. Hopefully your efforts will be rewarded with all the “oos” and “ahhs” you’ll get after serving cupcakes with edible, mini buttons.  Get the recipe here.

With so many options to choose from, there’s no need to serve pink or blue cupcakes to be gender-friendly. If you still aren’t sure what type of cupcakes to make, ask the mama-to-be what her favorite type of cake is and go with that. She’s the VIP, after all.

See These Celebrity Baby Showers Now!

Celebrity baby showers are just like baby showers held by us regular human beings – except they’re in a more expensive place, with decor, food and activities planned for and attended by more expensive, glamourous people. (Not necessarily needed though)

We check out these few celebrity baby showers that wow us with their cuteness, creativity or just over-the-top glam factor.

1. Candice Swanepoel

This year, Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel announced she was pregnant. Expecting in November this year, Candice posed in an off-the-shoulder white HATCH dress with flounced neckline cradling her bump in front of a table laden with goodies and plush animal toys.

Matching her safari-themed baby shower, she revealed her son’s name, Anaca in light blue capital letters on the wall and dotted the wall with tiny animal motifs of lions, zebras and giraffes.

2. Sheryl Crow

Sheryl’s colour scheme for her baby shower was earthly colours like red, blue and brown. But aside from the warm and earthy colours, the party was actually very eco-friendly, which sets it apart from other baby showers that center on creativity and fun.

Each table setting at Sheryl Crow’s baby shower consisted of a display of wheat grass with a cute planter paper decoration for the guests to take home. The planter paper is a fun and earth friendly way to give your guests a poem to take home and plant. Once planted in the ground, flowers bloom.

3. Blake Lively

Before we talk about anything else, can we take a moment to gush over pregnant Blake Lively and how stunning she looks?

While Blake Lively keeps her personal life very privately, and more than four months after news broke that Blake Lively was expecting her second child with husband Ryan Reynolds, a source confirms that the celebration was held at the Bedford Post Inn Saturday afternoon in New York. Guests started arriving around 11 a.m. local time and enjoyed the 90-minute gathering in the heart of Westchester County.

Warm and friendship-filled, cosy and comfortable, congratulations Blake! That’s all a baby shower needs – good food, homely company and happy chatter!

4. Christina Aguilera

To set Christina apart from all the fun and sweet baby showers, her baby shower featured a cake that was an edible sculpture of a naked Christina laying on her back with legs splayed, and a baby’s head poking out of her lady bits. The inscription read, “Push Xtina Push!”

5. Drew Barrymore

Rounding up  the celebrity baby showers, for her baby shower, Drew enjoyed an afternoon out in the sun with her close friends. Among the A-list mix were famous friends Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz, Gwyneth Paltrow, and, of course, husband Will Kopelman.

With lots of food and friends, Drew Barrymore had herself a wonderful baby shower indeed.
