Our favorite early morning breakfast spots in Singapore

Our two year old twins wake up around 6:45-7:00am. On Sundays, we enjoy venturing to one of our usual early morning breakfast spots. Most places in Singapore open around 8:00-9:00am, so parents with early risers may often wonder where to go for an early morning brunch. Our current go-to places include:

Our trip to Legoland Malaysia with twin toddlers

We recently returned from Legoland Malaysia with our two year old twins. Luckily, there wasn’t much planning necessary, but I thought it would be useful to outline our trip.

Accommodations

We booked an Airbnb at the Afiniti Residences, just 5 minutes away from Legoland. The condo was spacious and clean, but the carpark was a winding maze. Our place was also near Gleneagles Medini, which was fortunate when my little girl another terrible coughing spell and had to see a doctor.

Exiting Singapore

We drove through the Tuas checkpoint and had to show the immigration officer our passports and Singapore identity cards. We then paid a $3.20 toll with our NETS cash card and drove across the Johor Strait to Malaysia immigration.

Entering Malaysia

At the Malaysia checkpoint, we showed our passports and identity cards again. We also paid a RM 20 fee with a Touch ‘n Go card. If you don’t have a Touch ‘n Go card, go to the immigration stalls at the right side of the checkpoint. It’s RM 50.60 for one card and contains RM 40 in credits. You will also need the card to pay the numerous tolls along the Malaysian expressways.
