Boardwalk lovin’

Morning, y’all. Hope your weekend was a good one, as all Easter weekends should be. Mondays are usually less blue after a lazy long weekend. Or more blue, depending on how much you dread going back to work, I suppose. Either way, I ain’t complaining about having 3 days off.

With the husband home for 3 whole days, we managed to check out some new places and revisit some old favorites with the kids. I’ll put up the ones we really enjoyed, starting with the Changi Point Boardwalk.

After hearing about the Changi Point Boardwalk, we just had to check it out. Mostly because any place with the name boardwalk in it has got to be fun. It’s got such a nice ring to it, boardwalk. Like Scorsese’s Boardwalk Empire (love it), Sentosa Boardwalk, and now Changi Boardwalk.

The kids loved that they had so much space to run free and we loved that there were railings to prevent them from falling into the ocean.

It’s been getting tougher trying to keep up with Tru ever since he started on his acceleration training. It’s a move he learnt from Lightning McQueen. He stops for a moment, strikes a deadly prepare-to-accelerate pose, mumbles “FOCUS, SPEED…” then sprints off into the sunset.

The good news is that we have a potential Usain Bolt on our hands but the bad news is that momma won’t be able to keep up.

If you plan on visiting, I’d recommend going later in the day. Most of the boardwalk has no shade so we spent a lot of time under the scorching heat. Couple that with having to sprint after a kid on speed, I honestly felt like I was going to pass out from heat exhaustion. Good thing there’s the husband to tag team with.

    Read your blog yesterday and decided to go check out the place and after driving all the way to changi village and turning round and round, we stopped at changi coast road, changi beach club, changi golf club but just couldn’t find it!! I was the only navigating savvy one in the car, but alas, I was driving and couldn’t check my iphone at the same time, and it didn’t help that it kept threatening to rain, so I was constantly at odds to whether to just go home or to keep looking.

    Gotta check out the map again to figure out how to get there from ecp. sigh.. I just know its just around that one bend I didn’t turn to and all we saw were lots of stray cats .. but I must admit, the changi beach was nice and rustic too..

      We had some difficulty finding the place too!!! google maps is practically useless in helping to locate the place.

      You want to go past changi village and changi hotel towards the changi civil service club. Just go all the way in past the changi sailing club and make a right at cranwell road. U can park along the side of andover road, right after you see the changi point boardwalk structure (the first picture). hope this helps!

    hmm.. we passed by all the same places you mentioned and I think I saw cranwell road, but ended up in some private old colonial bungalow which doubles up as some chalet now. will try again.
