Norwegian Air budget flights from London to Singapore


Norwegian Air, Norwegian low-cost airline which is the third largest low-cost carrier in Europe, has launched the world's longest budget flight route from London to Singapore, which will cost £149.90 one-way (273.84 Singapore Dollars). The budget Singapore flight will be a non-stop flight between Gatwick Airport which is 47.5 km south of Central London to Singapore Changi Airport and will take 12 hours and 45 minutes.

The route was announced in April 2017 and is operating since September 28th 2017. The flight departs 10.30 a.m. from London and lands in Singapore at 6.15 a.m Singapore time.

You may think that it would be a torture to take almost 13 hours budget flight. But the London - Singapore budget flight is operated by a brand new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft. All seats on the Dreamliner have personal 11-inch seat-back screens and USB ports.

Fun N Laughter (City Square Mall) Indoor Playground


My 4.5 years old daughter loves Indoor Playgrounds. I love them to because if you find a clean and safe one, you can leave your kid inside and go out or even if you are inside you can just stay in a corner and enjoy your mobile phone.

The one I go most (actually nowadays almost entirely) is Fun N Laughter at City Square Mall. This Singapore Indoor Playground focuses on active play and I find their play area very friendly even for young kids. Somehow I have a feeling that they can also keep the area clean because one of my biggest problem with an indoor playground is that my kid could get pretty regularly sick after each playground visit.

The playground design is quite impressive because unlike some other places, there is almost no area in Fun N Laughter where you need to be around your kid for his / her safety or to help to climb up. But if you want to follow up your young kid, the active play area is high enough for an adult to easily follow his / her kid without bending. In some indoor playgrounds, these areas require you to bend down and it becomes very tiring for a parent to follow up after some time.

The slides in the indoor park are great fun for kids. They are tall and long and very fun to slide.Some other facilities in the indoor playground are :

- a toddler play area with interactive projector games
- a toddler ball pit
- a big ball pit for older kids
- two air blasters and a target board for the blasters
- a nice nursing room with diaper-changing facility and water dispenser

The staff in the playground are also very friendly and helpful.

Admission rate is around 23 SGD for two hours and 28 SGD for unlimited access in peak days (weekends and public holidays). I have a 10 admission package which makes unlimited access any time only around 20 SGD.

The Fun N Laughter is at City Square Mall #B2-32, 180 Kitchener Road, Singapore 208539. City Square Mall is just at one of the exits of Farrer Park MRT Station (there is a direct connection into the mall). If you drive, the facility is just outside the carpark door.

Interested companies can sign up and get their cloud software account immediately from www.emergeapp.net.

In addition to the funding and assistance provided by organisations such as SPRING Singapore, EMERGE App is stepping in now to provide order processing and inventory management software so that businesses can streamline their business and product workflows.

Although Singapore’s trading and distribution industry in 2015 totaled nearly S$1 trillion, EMERGE App believes this number can be enhanced by reducing the inefficiency companies face from poor administration habits.

Currently, SMEs looking for order processing and inventory software either use Microsoft Excel or will have to purchase customised software, which can be nearly impossible for them to afford. Entrepreneur Benjamin Yee faced a similar problem with his T-shirt wholesale business back in 2010, and thus decided to solve it on his own. The result was EMERGE App.
