Family Karaoke Centre hits Kuala Lumpur!

Something new, something a little different….. Anyone for karaoke?!

The ARK Karaoke Dining opened in December 2018 and offers a choice of themed karaoke rooms, perfect for families or gatherings with a small group of friends. They have created a colourful child-friendly, shoe-free kiddies room which can be used for families and can even be converted into a playroom with the rental of their FREE toys!

They have everything from a portable ball pit, train tracks, and car sets, to jigsaw puzzles, card games, and toddler toys, so it’s perfect to keep little one busy and focused!

Add to this they have a good offering of healthy food options and homemade pizzas, as well as a large selection of drinks! Their FB page has all the latest updates and promotional offers so be sure to stop by to check it out.

I have to say I love this new concept; they can organise children’s birthday parties, and they have some amazing package deals in place for dining-in and getting a karaoke room FREE of charge for an hour! So, if you’re tempted to sing your heart out, they have over 100,000 songs available in multiple languages, with some fab kids favourites too!

You can find them at Solaris Mont Kiara on the first floor, open Tuesday to Sunday from 11.30am til late (updated recently from their flyer so you can go in half an hour earlier to get singing!)

Happy singing, S x

Waka Waka Indoor Playground Opens in KL!

New, New, New!

Now you know I love a new addition to the city, and this one comes with a fabulous opening offer for this weekend only!

Direct from Singapore, Waka Waka KL has just opened its doors here in the heart of the city (at Furama Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur, very close to Berjaya Times Square) and they invite you all along for a play for just RM20 per child this Saturday and Sunday!

This Medieval Playground has a large indoor play space of climbing structures, multiple slides, tunnels, obstacles, and all the other usual suspects.

They also have a completely separate section for toddlers which is filled with ride-ons, little houses, and slightly smaller equipment so that even the youngest guests can enjoy themselves.

Play in the castle, explore the kingdom, and even take selfies in their rather splendid carriage that awaits you at the entrance.

There’s a nice, large, colourful seating area with food and drinks available so mums and dads can take a ringside seat and relax a little while the little ones burn off some energy!

We haven’t been over yet (they literally opened yesterday!) but this weekend’s special promotional rate is a great excuse to pop along and see what it’s all about! (Full price list valid after the 14th of April 2019 can be found at the end of the post)

Drop me a comment below if you go for a play and let me know what you think! Enjoy, S x

A Family Getaway to Tadom Hill Resorts, Malaysia

We are only just back from our half term holiday but I’ve just seen a friend of mine staying at this amazing place so I think I need to plan a staycation!

Tadom Hill Resorts is a lovely bamboo resort set on a lake with stunning views, and only 45 minutes from Kuala Lumpur! (And only 15 minutes from KLIA, Putrajaya and Cyberjaya!)

Choose to stay in their Hakka Village and bunk in with up to 6 people, book a chalet, or decide to try out their bamboo tents to be even closer to nature!

The resort looks absolutely perfect for families and children with a specially built playground for the kids, rafting fun on the lake, a flying fox, Tarzan swings over the water, and their new addition of cars for the kids to run around in!

While we haven’t yet been, I’ve heard some great things about the place, be it for a day trip or for an overnight stay. You can check out their website here for more information on everything from team building events and school visits, to just going along on a day trip to enjoy their water and sports activities.

Definitely worth checking out for a getaway a little closer to home! S x

Kuala Lumpur’s Lake Gardens by Night.

I can’t say that you’ll often find us out late in a park, but with the recent heat, it was a very welcome change to still be strolling around the Botanical Gardens with friends at sunset.

The park (also known as the Lake Gardens) took on a whole different feel as the colours changed, and night fell upon the lake. As vibrant as always, we went to one of our favourite KL playgrounds where my two never get bored of the immense amount of structures and slides to attack!

We made our way through the Sunken Garden before heading to the lake to make the complete tour of the water. We weren’t the only ones with the slightly cooler temperatures hitting at the end of the afternoon, we were joined by joggers and many a family with little ones on scooters and tricycles, which only added to the ambiance of the park.

The Botanical Gardens are open daily to the public from 7am to 8pm, and are completely free of charge. Set around the main lake, you will find a host of different features from a Deer Park, waterfalls, two separate playgrounds, bamboo play structure, fountains, and the Sunken Garden.

Of course we have visited the Gardens on many occasion during the day, so to check out that review, click here.

Proving that there’s always something new to discover, a new take on something familiar, I’m glad we found ourselves seeing Perdana Botanical Garden through new eyes.

Have a great week ahead everyone, S x

Free Indoor Play Zones in Kuala Lumpur Malls.

I’m starting the week looking at some of the malls in the city that have implemented FREE play areas for the little ones.

After you enjoyed my last album on Kids Cafes in KL so much, I thought it would be good to have an album on the child-friendly malls offering a free play zone to enjoy when the kiddies (and maybe you!) need a break in the middle of a shopping spree!

We’ve been impressed by the likes of MyTOWN Shopping Centre and IPC Shopping Centre for being so family-orientated, and it seems department stores like Parksons are also introducing more play zones for children to enjoy, at no cost at all.

Slides, climbing frames, swings, and a dedicated space to run around a bit, it’s a really great idea! There are also malls offering free reading corners, rain forest walks, nature experiences, and even water splash areas, but for now, I will dedicate this collection to play zones, with a view of keeping this updated when I find something else to add to it. So, save it, share it, pop back….and let’s see what else we can find to keep us busy in Kuala Lumpur!

Have a great week, S x

1 Utama Shopping Centre:

1 Utama Shopping Centre

They introduced this lovely colourful, safari-themed zone in 2018 and it’s a really nice addition for families when on a shop at this massive mall!

Not only this, but of course they also now have their Kids Splash Pool located downstairs just next to FlowRider which is is also free of charge, perfect for a cool off, and in sight of plenty of eateries!

Sunway Pyramid:

Sunway Pyramid

One of the most recent playgrounds to pop up is located right at Starbucks on LG1 of the infamous Sunway Pyramid.

Set mostly outside, but with a few small pieces of equipment indoors as well, I think this will be a firm favourite with parents wanting to enjoy the shade of the coffee shop terrace while the kiddies enjoy the free play area.

The main outdoor play structure complete with colourful slides, climbing and tunnels, resembles a boat and is set in the garden area. Add to that some small equipment for younger children and you’ve got a great place to hang out in the middle of a shopping spree!!

Not solely for Starbucks clients, this is for everyone, but I guarantee it’s a busy place, especially on the weekends!

IPC Shopping Centre:

IPC Shopping Centre

This second floor of the mall in Mutiara Damansara went under quite the renovation. They opened up ths great little free play zone with slides, swings, roundabouts and ‘plyground games’ etched out on the floor.

Not only this, they have cleverly placed this space near to some cafes, so you can compbine a play with grabbing a snack or having a coffee.

(One of our family favourites is just nextdoor: Bucket B Cafe!)

MyTOWN Shopping Centre:

MyTOWN Shopping Centre

This is a great family-friendly mall with lots of outlets aimed at children. But in addition to that, they have multiple play zones which are all free of cvharge to use.

There are two areas up next to Molly Fantasy (on level 2) which are great for toddlers and younger children, and also a couple of zones ( in-sight of Ikea) which has a large slide and a colourful playground for all children up to the age of 12.

The Curve, Mutiara Damansara:

The Curve, Mutiara Damansara

There’s not one, but two play zones, plus the wonderful added feature of a relaxing aquarium to wander around. Their signage says that the playground is aimed at children aged 5 to 12 but I’m pretty sure this great and used by younger ones too! It includes slides, tunnels and climbing areas, all located on the 1st floor outside Mothercare and the LEGO shop.

You can then head over to their sea-themed zone where little ones will love checking out the fish in the aquariums before playing in, and sliding down, boats! They sanitize the space daily but just know that this takes place between 3.30pm and 4.30pm daily so you won’t be able to use the area then!

Centrepoint Bandar Utama:

Centrepoint Bandar Utama

There is a colourful little playground with enough pace to run around just in front of the Hawker Food Centre. It’s got the usual suspects of climbing frames, slides and a roundabout, and will undoubtedly be a welcome sight for most children in the middle of a shopping trip!

Parkson:

Parkson

I’ve written a couple of posts over the last year about different Parkson Department Stores adding little FREE play zones to their Children’s Section, and I have to say, i love this idea.

They vary in size, and can sometimes just offer a little slide and some stepping stone cushions, but others offer climbing, sliding, rocking animals, ball pools and some great space for a bit of a time out from shopping!

Here you have pictures from 3 venues that I know to have this free play space; namely DA MEN Mall, Sunway Pyramid, and Pavilion KL

(For Da Men Mall, find them located at Shoes Gallery by Parkson /Little Monsters on the 3rd floor)

If you’re heading for the ou department, this will give the minis a chance to play while you stay nearby!

Free Play Zones at The Curve in Kuala Lumpur.

Today we are off inside to take a look at another mall with some great FREE facilities for families!

Not a new addition, but as I look at putting together a new album for you all, here’s a little look at the playgrounds offered at The Curve, Mutiara Damansara.

There’s not one, but two play zones, plus the wonderful added feature of a relaxing aquarium to wander around. As per their signage, the playground is aimed at children aged 5 to 12 and includes slides, tunnels and climbing areas, located on the 1st floor outside Mothercare and the LEGO shop.

Next, you can head over to their sea-themed zone where little ones will love checking out the fish in the aquariums before playing in, and sliding down, boats!

They sanitize the space daily but just know that this takes place between 3.30pm and 4.30pm daily so you won’t be able to use the area then!

A big shout out to Seng Meng Lim one of my avid followers over on my FB page for sending in great photos of the space before they opened- perfect! Thank you!

Look out for a new album coming soon, S x

SuperPark Malaysia; An Indoor Centre in KL perfect for Families.

Let’s start the week with a review from one of my mummy friends who recently visited SuperPark Malaysia!

If you haven’t yet heard, this is the new Indoor Activity Park to open at Avenue k in the very heart of the city. Offering an amazing choice of activities, not just for the little ones, but the parents too, there really is something for everyone. Aimed at encouraging a bit of bonding for families, I’m happy to report that Ferlynda and her 3 boys had a great time!

So, not sure how they would enjoy the park, they decided to go after 6pm on a weekday to take advantage of their great rates: just RM30 per person, and a seemingly quiet time to go with them almost having the park to themselves! (Regular rates start from RM45 with their full price list at the bottom of the page)

Before paying the entrance fee to the park, you will need to fill in their waiver forms on their iPads – a necessity from a safety point of view but it can be a bit timely so leave yourself some time so that it doesn’t effect your play time inside! As well as paying your entrance fee, you will then also need to pay for your branded grip socks, charged at RM5 a pair. They insist on these for everyone, and you won’t get away with bringing your own from home!

Everyone who pays to enter gets a wristband, and their own locker for storing belongings. Once you’ve sorted through all of this, you’re ready to hit the park!

The attractions are split into different zones which you are free to wander around.

Their Game Arena is perfect for sports fans, with baseball nets, Street basketball, disc golf, and street soccer courts.

If you head over to their Adventure Arena, there is everything from a Flying Fox and trampolines, to a Kid’s Gym, Pedal Car Track, and Tube Slide.

If all that isn’t enough, you can hit up their Freestyle Arena offering ice skating, a gymnastic area, a Skate and Scoot World, and their Augmented Climbing Wall, so the choice is yours!

This isn’t at all a place to drop the kids off, instead it’s an all-In-One Centre for the whole family. Staff are around at all times for supervision, but the idea is, that you too, get to have fun and join in with the kids!

Check out their current entrance fees above but also take a look at their special promo running until the 17th of March! Take along three friends and pay RM150 for the 4 of you! Enjoy,

30,000 reasons to say Thank You.

It’s a wonderful week when you wake up one morning to see that numbers on your page have gone soaring and there are suddenly over 30,000 people that enjoy your FB page!

My album on Kids Cafes in KL turned out to be the most popular article I’d written in a long time, with already over 3000 shares across Facebook – WOW!

The words ‘thank you’ just never seem enough – you are all just amazing and I appreciate every single like, comment, share, private message, and the words of advice that I receive from YOU! Here on my blog, I love seeing your comments and any other interaction I get from you all – it’s so amazing and still shocks me to be quite honest!

This is by no means just my achievement, but a joint effort from us all, and for that, I thank you wholeheartedly!

Kids Cafes in Kuala Lumpur – 2019 Best of….!

With so many fabulous cafes and restaurants in Kuala Lumpur perfect for family dining, I thought it was time to update and revamp my album on Kids Cafes in the city.

We have had the chance to try some new places over the last few months, revisit some favourites, and enjoy the classics that have been around for a while, but still offer a great space when dining out with children. From the big impressive soft play set-ups with slides and ball pools, to quieter play zones filled with books, toys and puzzles, there’s always something to keep the little ones busy!

The choice in KL is literally overwhelming and I love seeing new places opening, new concepts being introduced….and sharing all of this, with all of you. This album will be continually updated…. so save it, share it, and come back to check out even more cafes as they open their doors to you and your family.

Happy dining, happy playing, enjoy! S x

BLOKKE, CITTA Mall:

When we heard that one of our favourite kids’ cafes had gone through a refurbishment we had to go along to see.

They haven’t just done a re-fit, this has been one of the most amazing examples of expansion and transformation EVER! They’ve taken over the neighboring shop space on the 1st floor of the mall to make it bigger and better… but just as colourful and fun as before!

Their new playground was designed by the owner’s very own children so they’ve got everything covered! It’s a little LEGO-inspired village with roads and playhouses; you can zoom around on ride-ons, drive in and out of houses, hide out at the fire station, or stand guard at the policeman’s watch tower.

There’s a Construction Area with giant blocks for future builders to enjoy, or if your little one is looking for a bit more action, they can have fun at Monkey Island where you can trampoline, climb, and slide, or chill out in their oversized ball pit!

If you liked their original cafe dining area, fear not – this still exists and can be used for private events and birthday parties, but they now have a brand new cafe area with ample of seating and the cutest LEGO play zone with colourful bean bags and boxes of bricks for those who just want to get back to the basics of building their own creations in view of their parents while they sit and eat.

With the expansion they have also added their own kitchen so food is cooked fresh on the premises throughout the day! Their menu offers everything from all-day breakfasts to salads, sandwiches, pastas and pizzas and they are open daily ( from 10am to 10pm on weekends, 9am to 9pm on weekdays, closed on Mondays).

Weaning Tots, MyTOWN Shopping Centre:

Located on the second floor of MyTOWN Shopping Centre in Cheras, and mixing a cafe with a playground, this place is definitely a great place for families to try. With big tubular slides that descend over the dining area, a ball pool, and a quieter corner with books, cushions and building blocks, you know the little ones will be kept nicely busy while you enjoy sitting in their spacious dining area. Their menu offers a range of healthy food options from edamame or guacamole to simple sandwiches and wraps, to hot meals and even a ‘make your own pizza’ section for the kiddies! For drinks you can have a range of hot teas and coffees or you can try some of their healthy juices, naughty ice cream smoothies, or their chilled bubbly drinks!

There is no additional fee for playing at the children’s play area, but do pass by and enjoy a little something off the menu to get the access for your little ones! A great big space for mummy meet-ups and events too so it’s one to put on the to-do-list!

Bucket B Cafe, IPC Shopping Centre:

A few months ago we went over to see Bucket B Cafe and just loved everything about it!

Inspired and owned by a mum who just wanted to have more coffee shops for mums to enjoy with their little ones, this cute cafe ticks all the right boxes. The cafe is really spacious with lots of seating and offers a great choice of food and drinks (Just look at the photo below with beautifully presented coffees, healthy juices and their take on French toast with bananas that was devoured by my twins in minutes!)

To top it off, they have a lovely little play area for children under 120cm tall; there are play houses and ball games, a slide, and little trampoline, trains and cars, and shelves filled with wooden puzzles for the younger crowd. For older children they have a great selection of board games and books, and their latest attraction of some retro video games that were a real favourite! Add to that a crafting area run by the team at Craft Space and fun weekend events, you can’t go wrong at Bucket B.

Fun Factory Plaza Arkadia, Desa ParkCity:

They opened on Christmas day (2018) and brought a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘child-friendly restaurant’ and I’m so excited to show you the first photos of what’s inside!

The latest addition to Desa ParkCity offers the most amazing indoor play area for little ones.

Children from 3-12 years old have a 3-level play zone with lots of obstacles and climbing fun, as well as a great big slide, and colourful ball pit. Entry is charged at just RM20 for unlimited access during your visit.

There’s then a separate area for toddlers under 3 (which is completely free of charge) and let’s the youngest of diners have their very own fun!

All of this is in-sight of mums and dads who can sit and enjoy a coffee, juice or a meal from their menu serving both western and Asian (Chinese-fusion) cuisine. They are open daily from 12 noon and close at 10pm on weekdays (while they stay open til closing on weekends and public holidays!)

Playground The Cafe, Arcoris Mont’ Kiara:

Yet another fabulous addition to Kuala Lumpur on the food and drinks’ scene, and so perfect for families, mum meet-ups, and even to celebrate a little birthday!

Playground The Cafe opened in Mont Kiara in 2018 and looks absolutely great for dining out with children. Located in Arcoris, not far from 1 Mont Kiara Mall, I’m sure this little haven will soon become a family-favorite.

With a light and airy feel, healthy food options, and a really impressive, safe play area for the little ones to enjoy (all insight of mum and dad), this place ticks off all the right boxes! Open daily from 10am to 7pm, the playground is free of charge for babies under 12 months old and comes with a small fee for children under 5 (price list in photos). If only my two were still young enough to play here I’d be there in a flash!

The Workshop Sri Petaling:

Located on Jalan Radin Bagus 7 in Sri Petaling, we visited just after it’s opening in 2017 and it remains a great spot for families.

With a big open space, a good offering of food and drink, and a fabulous soft play area for the little ones that includes a ball pit, slides, climbing area and a little trampoline, this is a great addition to the area.

It’s an ideal place to enjoy a meal as a family where you know you can eat your food and the children can play safely in the playground. They have a children’s menu and a wide selection of food and for every adult meal ordered, you get free access for one child to the play area. Of course if you just fancy dropping in for a drink, you can choose to pay the flat rate of RM12 for the play area and everyone still has a great time!

Closed on Tuesdays, but open every other day from 11am to 10pm daily with the possibility of privatizing space in advance for birthday celebrations and other functions!

You’ll need socks to be able to play, but this is definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area.

Marmalade, Bangsar Village II:

Since their cafe at Publika is no longer open, we’d had this one on our to-do-list for quite a while and were looking forward to dining and playing!

With a nice selection of healthy options, specific kids’ menu, main dishes, and desserts, you’re sure to find something to please every taste. From bagels and smoothie bowls, to classics like lasagne and Caesar salads, and breakfast options and brunch, Marmalade has got you covered.

While this isn’t a new edition to Kuala Lumpur, the cafe (located on the 1st floor of the shopping Centre) is perfect for dining out with the little ones with a dedicated play space in sight of the dining area. Equipped with the essentials of an IKEA kitchen and accessories, baby toys, cuddly animals and a nice little selection of books to be read while chilling out on giant beanbags, there’s enough to keep the youngest members of the family occupied in between courses or while you sit back and enjoy a coffee!

Open from 10am to 10pm daily.

Noriter, 1 Mont Kiara Mall:

This cafe isn’t a recent addition to the city, but it does remain a great child-friendly cafe with the perfect space for little ones under the age of 4.

While it may be in a mall, the space is airy and bright with natural sunlight that beams through the glass ceiling. Offering fresh juices, coffees, snacks and some Korean specialities such as noodles and bingsu, the main advantage here is the use of their lovely little enclosed play area. Catering from the youngest of visitors with bouncers, activity tables and ride-ons, to the more curious toddlers with trains and blocks, puzzles, and play kitchens, this indoor space is one of the best for young families or play dates. Spend RM2O or more to gain free access to the play area, or pay RM10 per entry. They are open from 10am to 9pm daily and can be found on the 2nd floor of the mall.

Upperhouse Kitchen and Dessert Bar, Bangsar:

One of my lovely mummy friends Ferlynda, went to try out Upperhouse, and was very nicely surprised by the great children’s area they have set up for the little ones!

While I haven’t tried their food myself, they do have a great little children’s menu which offers classics like chicken nuggets, fish fingers, and carbonara, but also tuna & cucumber sandwiches, and a mushroom soup with croutons.

They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and have everything from soups and salads, to pasta dishes and burgers, with their colourful creative desserts looking extremely tempting! Also look out for their great value Set Lunches, afternoon teas, and more!

This venue is perfect for mummy meet-ups or family dining when you know little ones have lots to keep them busy; from books and puzzles, to a teepee and mini kitchen, it makes eating out with children so much easier! They are closed every Wednesday but otherwise open daily from 11am until 10pm (until 11.30pm on Friday and Saturday) and can be found in Bangsar on Jalan Telawi 3

For Goodness Cakes, Desa Sri Hartamas:

Not only a cute name, but a cute little café too that welcomes children very whole-heartedly.

Friendly staff ensure you have everything you need; this is the only place we’ve ever been served up crepes personalized with our names – wow! With a nice selection of hot and cold meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner they also make a host of yummy cakes, scones and cookies on the premises, which we didn’t hesitate to try. In the middle of the café there is a nice little play section for the children, complete with Ikea-style kitchen and accessories, cuddly toys, cars, puppets, books and goodness knows what else but it was certainly enough to keep our two busy while we were waiting for our food.

The addition of a large car park just opposite them makes stopping by for a quick bite to eat even easier so be sure to pop by and say hi! Their exact location is on 36 Jalan 27/70A.

Yellow Brick Road, Batai Village (Damansara Heights):

Here you don’t only get one eatery, but two! While Yellow Brick Road is the ground floor coffee shop, you can also take a trip upstairs to the Wicked Pancake Parlour where they also have a great play space for children.

They serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and, needless to say, an impressive menu of pancakes that come with an array of toppings! They’ve got great coffee, healthy juice options, and have a a fair bit of space split over the two floors.

Open 9am and 10pm daily, but just take note that the kitchen takes a break between 4&6pm.

(The Wicked Pancake Parlour has slightly different opening hours so if you’re going specifically for the play area upstairs, they only open at 11am on weekdays, 10am on weekends)

Good Friends Cafe, Subang jaya (Jalan SS15/8A):

Perhaps their name says it all, but it’s certainly a nice place to hang out with friends and family when you have little ones.

August saw the start of their brand new menu so now you can choose from a selection of salads, burgers, pizzas, wraps and bruschettas, as well as a good variety of sweet treats. They have a special menu in place for children, which they cook fresh on the premises without preservatives or MSGs so they’re cooking healthy bites for the whole family which is a big bonus.

There’s a play area too, which will keep little ones busy before and after eating, with books, toys, train sets and a host of other bits n pieces for them to enjoy.

Open every day until 10pm. On weekdays they open at 11am, on weekends they open from 8am.

Slappy Cakes Malaysia, Sunway Pyramid:

At Slappy Cakes their DIY Pancakes are their speciality and I have to say, the idea is a brilliant one. Choose your flavours of batter (from chocolate, buttermilk, peanut and pandan) then add some toppings (from their wide selection of fruits, nuts, savoury and sweet things!) and you’re on your way to making your very own pancakes on a hot plate at your table!

This is the perfect opportunity for getting creative by making your pancakes in any size, shape and form, and getting the little ones involved and keeping them interested in their food while you’re out and about.

So much fun for kids and adults alike, but they also have a menu of pancake stacks, teas, coffees and other beverages which they serve daily from 8.30am to 10.00pm.

Find them at Pyramid West on the 1st floor.

Caffe Crema Coffee & Tea, Mont Kiara:

This little coffee shop is host to a wide range of speciality coffees, teas and juices with a small selection of sweet accompaniments for your beverages. Connected to a hair salon just next door, take a sit in the cosy couch area right opposite a little carpeted area for kids to enjoy toys, dolls, cars and a little bit of everything else! Decked out with cushions and books, the little ones can have a play or a read while you get to enjoy your drink!

Antipodean Cafe, Menara Tan & Tan:

Antipodean is a fairly staple name in the Kuala Lumpur with large portions and a big array of food options from all day breakfasts to waffles, salads, some amazing fresh juices, and display cakes to make your mouth water!

At their KLCC branch (pictured above) they have a small, area dedicated to children which, if you’re looking for something to keep the little ones busy while you enjoy your meal, it should do the trick! With lots of toys and puzzles scattered everywhere, this will keep them occupied but it’s normally the moving playing on the TV that gets the attention! Either way it’s definitely an option when dining out with children.

Ra-Ft Cafe’ / Bistro, KLCC at Binjai 8 (off Persiaran KLCC):

Nestled a short walk away from The Petronas Towers this is a nice new addition to the area.

With their designated space for children set up with a few cuddly toys, wooden blocks and a television, it means that parents can eat their meal while the children play or watch a movie.

The menu is Italian-inspired with pastas, salads, breakfast options, fresh juices and their very own home-roasted coffees and has both indoor and outdoor seating.

Wondermilk at Publika:

Not the largest place in town, but cute just the same if you want to stop off somewhere during your time at Publika.

While they do serve a limited offering of lighter meals such as sandwiches with fries, it’s their sweet treats that pull the crowds! Coffees, juices, sodas, and then an impressive choice of cupcakes, which you can buy individually or by the box for special occasions, eat in, or take away. With it’s quaint interior, it’s nice to see that they’ve added a little play corner for the little ones that would certainly keep toddlers busy with a play kitchen and a few wooden puzzles to get to grips with.

Open daily from 10am to 10pm, check out one of their cafes around the city as they have multiple locations (including IOI City Mall, Damansara Uptown and Citta Mall)

O’Coffee Club, Parkson, Pavilion KL:

I hesitated about putting this coffee shop in the album but…..it’s a cafe AND you have access to the cute little play area just opposite s it definitely derserves a mention!

It’s set right next to the toys and stationery at Parkson Department store and acts as a great haven for kids to kick back and burn a bit of energy in the middle of a hectic shopping spree. It’s only aimed for younger tots with miniature steps and slides, but the big pebble ‘stepping stones’ get used quite a bit and are rather fun for relaxing too!

Find them on the 6th Floor within Parkson at Pavilion KL

Thank you so much for reading and taking them to check all these places out. If you go along and try one, let me know how it was!
