June Holidays are keeping us busy

June Holidays has barely started and Daddy is already stuck with backloads of Fun haha. Look at Wen Wei swimming in Oreos !

There might not be enough time to blog about every event, but Daddy will always upload the latest adventures on our fan page.

You can view how we celebrate Boon Xin’s 3rd birthday 🙂

She was so happy to find her old kakis, and they link up over our bikes and lorries !

Did you know we sent the whole contingent down to ColdStorage Run? Thanks to Marina Bay for the sponsorship. We enjoy a fun filled, hot and tiring morning with our friends 🙂

Even Boon Xin got some pace, although she lasted only 200m.. Race is 800m.

We took a dip at MBS’s swimming pool, the one offering a magnificent view of our CBD.

So surreal for us to walk to the edge of infinity pool.

We end with Wild Wild Wet. Oreo is celebrating 100 years old, and we get complimentary tickets to one of three attractions. No points for guessing why we water babies chose WWW !

Oreo was so kind to send us one month’s supply of Oreo cookies. Look at the first photo, Boon Wee is swimming in Oreo cookies !

Wild Wild Wet, we are not wild but we definitely got WET !
Slides, Waves, rubber boats, we soak them all !

Do pop by our Fanpage albums for the latest activities.
Just click on the photos above.

More on Oreo’s anniversary :
Oreo would like us to “celebrate the kid in us”. Daddy believe we are living that dream, day after day. You can pop by Oreo’s fanpage to see how they are celebrating their birthday worldwide.

Just look at our Fun-albums, you can tell we are a fun loving family right :p
Next week, we will be camping at Festive Hotel Yipee 🙂
If you bump into us, say Hello to us ok.

Taiwan 台北 family itinerary

Since school holiday is here, we thought we could share our Taiwan Family Itinerary with more families here. This post was first posted at our old blog.

Daddy stayed 3 nights, before SengkangBabies came for another 5 nights. Taipei and TaoYuan is packed with kids activities to keep us entertained ! Initially, we intended to leave Wen Xin behind in Singapore, but Mummy could not bear too.

We make a right choice to bring her to Taiwan, Xin had fun along with us, although we had our fair share of tantrums !

Below pictures are randomly selected, and more details will be shared along our Taipei trail. Some pictures need no introduction, because they are iconic landmarks, or their “smell” will haunt you haha. Scroll down for SengkangBabies’ 9D8N 台北 itinerary

Bosch Automotive Check-in Week – from 28May to 02Jun

Daddy always thought Bosch is about power-drills (those found in DIY outlets) or washing machines, but little did he know Bosch is HUGH in the automotive industry.

Michael Goh (Country Sales manager for SG) shares with us that Automotive sales account for almost 50% of group sales ! To quote from Bosch Fanpage (about servicing)
=== === === ===
With more than 14,000 Bosch Service partners, we are the largest independent workshop organization in the world.
We work with the know-how from Bosch the biggest car parts manufacturer in the world offering a wide range of Original equipment vehicle parts and diagnostic equipment.
When it comes to high-quality, affordable maintenance and repairs for all makes, look no further than Bosch Car Service!
=== === === ===

He went on to elaborate that under the hoods of most common automotive Brands, Bosch’s engineering and patents lie underneath.

Now, why is Daddy suddenly talking about Bosch and car servicing?
Bosch is running an Automotive Check-in Week from 28May to 02Jun.
You can click for more details from Bosch Fanpage.

In partnership with Omy, Daddy has been selected as one of six bloggers to compete at Bosch’s Amazing Race this coming Sat.

=== === === ===
Summary of Bosch Automotive Checkin events :
31May – 10am to 6pm – Bosch Roadshow at Chevron House, Raffles Place MRT

=== === === ===

Bosch motto is “Invented for Life”.

We are looking forward to Sat’s event. Besides looking for Bosch’s mascot “Uncle Bob”, we will also learn about some car maintenance tips. Hopefully we do not have to change tyres or drink водка (Vodka) at the pit-stops ! (We heard a Bosch Russian manager will be manning one of the workshop on Sat)

Maybe our car can get a free vacuum service. Our kids love to invite pet “roaches” into our cars with their tidbits and sweets!
