Bathukamma festival, article contributed by Mrs. Mounika!

We have been celebrating Navaratri this festive season and this one is unique one this season. Mrs. Mounika has pen down her culture and festival celebrated across the globe with her friends. 

Singapore is  a land of festivals of different religions  from different countries coexist harmoniously which is a true manifestation on respecting rich culture and traditions of people round the globe.

October 8th 2016 evening, Bathukamma played by women in Hyderabad ,India entered into the “Guinness book of world records” on the highest participation and I am elated to say that we  in bedok could add this festival  Bathukamma—“Mother Goddess Come alive” in the Singapore Calendar on the same evening been celebrated at bedok..
Bathukamma is a form of worshipping the patron Goddess of Womenhood Maha Gauri Devi and is done by 12 different flowers shaped into a temple. Like how everyone revolve round the Temple as Pradakshanas, similarly everyone move round the floral mountain singing with three tributes Uyyala (swing),Chandamama(Moon) & Gowramma (goddess).

The beauty of this is how well everyone’s clapping & steps synchronise  in unison providing a splendorous look at the festival to Seek Good Health,Prosperity & happiness in the families.

I thank one and all for supporting me in introducing our tradition,Bathukamma  where i even thank everyone on coming down , joined together in our traditional dresses and make this Festival  Bathukamma come alive in Singapore.

I wish to keep up this tradition every year with the help of Community Centres.


Thank you for the wonderful contribution and letting readers know about this festival.

Colgate Magical Sea World! Indistuff

Colgate introduced magical sea world packs. I use colgate for my gum problems too.

Colgate strong teeth pack comes with 4 different sets of interesting magical sea world creatures. Kids can cut, play and learn. It looks very colourful and attractive. This activity can be done with group of kids and friends. Its fun too.

My kids liked it and were excited to see printed inside and he liked to cut and play. Both kids were playing and found it useful too.  They tried to create own stories out of it. Learnt names of the creatures. Its a educational game. It was fun to see them sit around and play. They should also include a small toy so they will collect more.

My son liked the pirate ship most. What do you like? Collect all 4.

All set for a colgate smile:-)

Thanks Colgate for sending me the packs.

How do you spend holidays with kids in Singapore?

Spending holidays with kids in Singapore without giving electronics gadgets is very difficult. Most of them travel to India for vacation, but some of them do not travel as there school re-opens for kids in India and many other personal reasons. But here it is not like India with our summer camps, here mostly it will be 3-4 days and with expensive fee.

I have been trying to give less phone or allow to watch TV, but sometimes forced to do so.

Few things I have jotted down, it might be useful.

  1. Wake up late, breakfast lunch also will be late, so its good to go outside in the evening.
  2. Check their holiday homework and plan to finish in last week. Some can be done on daily basis too.
  3. Visit friends place to play indoor and outdoor games.
  4. Sleepover at friends place and vice versa.
  5. Continue their extra ciricular classes such as swimming, music, dance, skating, balvihar, etc
  6. Enjoy family bicycle rides whenever possible on weekends.
  7. Go to kids movie with friends or family.
  8. Daily go to play area or park and play with friends, cycle, football, skating, etc
  9. Once in a while visit library, for some kids it might be boring.
  10. Visit water parks, sentosa, birdpark, science centre,
  11. Do your favourite at home baking or art work.
  12. Do checkout interesting holiday workshops at nearby community centre and enrol them.

will be adding more soon. with event happenings around Singapore.
