July activities

What’s keeping you busy in July?

##The headlines hitting our media are SMRT inquiry, City Harvest Church saga, high profile sexual scandals, Euro 2012 Spain and Olmpics. Fortuately, our kids have less prominent activities.

The kids can scale a TALL artificial Rock wall (not because Spideyman 3D is here).
On 21Jul, Bedok CC will have a Rock climbing event !

–> Spiderman can register here  http://therockschool.sg/trcc/

Maybe kids have been fascinated with Transformer, want your kids to have a go at building a robot? Below photo is from RoboLabs, a company that provides Creative Robotics Training for kids age 6 and up. We definitely need a robo-cleaner to sweep and mop our house.

–> Dr Tony Tan (President) did say we need more R&D scientists.

Blogger Daniel wants some volunteers to #CookForFamily. We cook, we bond, then we blog about our family experience.  Kids place their tummy-faith on Daddy’s French toast! (Photo taken early Sat morning when Daddy is supposed to be snoozing, thus the no-makeover style)

–> If you are interested, join 100 others at Twitter Hashtag #CookForFamily or register here.

If you do not want eggs, maybe Flowers (Gardens by the Bay) can seduce you?

Meanwhile, you can expect Daddy to throw more flowers and mist and landscaping at you 🙂 Read our Gardens power

Last but not least, 2012 Singapore Blog Awards. Daddy look forward to meeting up with more bloggers face to face. We are top ten under Parenting category. The theme is “SuperHeroes“, but do not expect Daddy to wear red underwear outside and take the MRT!

Admist all the bells and whistles, Daddy always believe bloggers have a social responsibility, to bring awareness to issues and the less fortunate.

1. Adam met with a mishap, leaving him handicap, but his mother is picking him up again. Salute! When we complain about our lives, there are always someone less fortunate out there,  whose voices are not even heard. Daddy wish our community will be more inclusive.

2. Hair For Hope. If you wish to donate hair or money for a good cause,
contact Daddy at –> SengkangBabies_Helpdesk

He is still looking for Botak buddies on 28th Jul.

Finally, everyone love Monopoly yes? We got three boxes to giveaway, please wait for our blog on Sunday. No one has gone-to-jail yet since our box is still sealed.

ps.. if Daddy forgets to mention any sponsors or events, please pardon him.
He is not a full time blogger :p

Running with Cold Storage Kids

SengkangBabies sent the whole contingent down to Cold Storage Kid’s Run last month. Thanks to Marina Bay for the sponsorship 🙂

We arrive early and went under the checkpoint. Daddy told kids to pose like winners 🙂
We know it will be crowded later.

Heng family (BPDG) and Tan Family joined us to run around the Padang today Yeah !

The participants today are not only the young ones. Daddy will run with Kang and Yi, and even Mummy will tag team with Boon Xin.


Before the race, Mascots are roaming around to warm the kids up.


Boon Wee and Denver’s age group will get to go first, but they are in different groups.

Batch by batch, the kids Dash down the road when the airhorn is Blasted. This is 1600m category, kids are supposed to pace themselves ooops.

Parents are always eager to see how their kids perform, as they try to identify their little darlings among the crowd.

Wei and Denver have to clear 1,600M each. So Proud of them 🙂

Wei’s result :p

In life, there will always be ups and downs. We only wish our kids will pick themselves up after each fall, and learn from their mistakes.

A lot of parent bloggers were here this morning, but we only bump into Edmund and Sakura.

Daddy accompanied Kang on his 800M jog. Kang is happy to complete his circuit, and got rewarded with a medal 🙂

Yi joined Chloe and Gladys in the next category. That meant another 800M for Daddy.

Yi gets to climb higher for a better view (thanks to Phoebe for the photo)

Did you know that cheerleaders (in this case, HelloStrangers) will be cheering your kids. It helps when Daddy is also struggling to keep pace too keke 🙂

Finally, Xin participates in toddler’s category (they are not the smallest, there is even a Stroller category !!)

Daddy wonder whether Xin can run or not? She covered a whole 200m (out of 800m), before asking for and Mummy “hug hug”!  Maybe 200M is considered impressive for her small legs :p

Running around the Padang provide good eye-candy for the kids. Maybe, it can help them to run faster. We enjoyed ourselves throughly, and the kids get to catchup with their buddies again.

That evening, everyone gets to show off their achievements and medals.

We would like to thanks Marina Bay for inviting us to the run 🙂
For more fun running photos, do pop by SengkangBabies album.

Sharp wants you to celebrate it’s 100th Anniversary !

[Advertorial]

Remember your small pocket calculator from Primary school, or the portable consumer LCD TV from Sharp‘s Aquos series?

These products might have been around since the 80s and Aquos from 2001, but did you know that Sharp is celebrating it’s 100th Years anniversary this year?

“Sharp 100 Years” has come a long way since 1912, to quote from their website :
=== === ===
This year, Sharp celebrates its 100th Anniversary on September 15.
Together, we can build a better future for our children for the next 100 years.
Therefore, from today June 7 to September 15, for a total of 100 days, we will embark on My SHARP Our FUTURE Campaign.

Sharp will make a contribution for every purchase of AQUOS TV and Plasmacluster generator/air purifier made during this campaign period.
The proceeds will go to the support of health programs such as vaccinations to ensure that our children grow up healthy.

Because of your support, we have come this far in 100 years.
For the next 100 years, Sharp is dedicated to creating a better life for all, together with you.
