Meet the Pitrellis
"My husband Timothy and I moved to Singapore from Newport Beach, California. We were to
stay for three to six months, if we were lucky. Just recently, we celebrated our 15th anniversary
here. Since then we’ve had three daughters: Noelle, Layla and Vivienne.
We joined The American Club after our first daughter was born. We were sold on all the things the Club has for families – from parent-and-baby swimming classes to meeting “Santa” without having to stand in line at the mall.
We go to the Club several times a week, and Sundays are my family’s favorite day to visit. The kids attend tennis lessons, and sometimes my husband and I hit the courts too. Then we have breakfast before stopping by the library to borrow books and movies.
The beautiful thing about the Club is that everyone in my family enjoys going, although for
different reasons. While I go to the spa or the Pilates studio, my husband may get a haircut, visit
the gym or relax over a cup of coffee. The kids would play games in the multi-level children’s
area called The Quad for hours, if we let them – and sometimes we do!
During some of the toughest parts of the pandemic, my husband and I worked in the business center to get a break from the house. While there, you meet other members and get to know the staff on a first name basis.
But the thing that draws us back time and again is the convenience. Where else can you grab a quick meal, pick up dry cleaning, buy stamps, order a case of wine and have several chats with friends?
I also enjoy the fact that my helper often joins us at the Club. We enjoy meals there and
celebrate the kids’ birthdays together.”
