Monopoly has been around longer than most of us, since the 1930s!
It has been one of Daddy’s favourite games during his growing up years.
Amazingly, Monopoly is now Wei and Kang’s favourite game too !
Some of the “cheats” and fun remain the same too, example :
- we keep quiet and hope landlord forget our rent, when we step on his property :p
- we cheer when someone is sent to jail (from Community Card)
- or when someone forfeit his $200 income if he steps on the “fouth-square” !
Monopoly is timeless, Singapore is ever changing too.
Hasbro came up with a two-sided monopoly “Then & Now” to cater to players both young and old.
Essentially, same square, but different buildings, example :
- THEN “General Post Office, NOW “The Fullerton Hotel”
- THEN “Coleman Market”, NOW “Lau Pa Sat”
Players both young and old can literally walk through Singapore’s history from colonial to present day.
Kids will understand more about money management, and that most parents do not own a bank.
Has anything changed over the years? Transport has been upgraded.
Due to inflation, rental and property prices have balloon, we now need credit cards to finance your purchase and transactions.
Monopoly’s symbolic tokens, Daddy told us last time got wheelbarrow, rolls-royce, iron and Hat? We thought the Durian is cool haha !
Kang pondering his next purchase.
Thanks to Hasbro, we have three set of Monopoly (worth $79.90) to give away.
You just need to “Like our Fanpage“, and “Comment” your unforgettable moment with Monopoly. Winners will be announced on this coming Sat 14th at 11PM.
When Yi plays with such glee, you know something is happening for the kids. We were invited to Suntec City’s new playground, Hokey Pokey.
Just look at this cool castle. Daddy had dream of his own castle since young, now the kids get to live in their own fort !
To quote from the five mummies/owners of Hokey Pokey :
“an educational and fun haven where mommies and daddies can bring their little kiddos to with a peace of mind. Safety and hygiene is our utmost concern and they will never be compromised. After all, we, ourselves are our biggest critic.”
Follow Boon Xin as she shows you how to have FUN !
..oops.. she decided to go for a makeover first. The dressing table proves too irresistible for little gals. (Daddy is curious why Xin knows how to apply lipstick ?)
Yi decides to show his metrosexual side but he could not find the ingredients. Maybe Hokey Pokey management can prepare some chef’s hat for the kids
Look at how they roll up and down the slope. If no one is looking,
Daddy is tempted to try this too….
Cars, Bikes, Lorries and fire engines will cater to the kids’ adrenalin.
Kids can indulge in some jamming session at another corner. Xin loves the little piano.
Anyone interested to be sim-city mayor? or take a helicopter ride, let kiddos’ imagination roam.
Yi and Xin also got an opportunity to create a cute ducky photo frame too. Both of them were so enthusiastic and proud about pasting their own design pieces
While they are getting busy, Daddy pop around to explore Hokey Pokey, which is like a Toys’ supermarket !
Kids will be thrilled if Mummy say she is going to abandon them for 2 to 3 hours keke.
Do you know which is the kids’ favourite section ?
As long as kids are having fun (and safe), Daddy does not mind how they slide down ! (maybe Mummies will disagree haha)
We has so much fun, playing hamtum-bola (ball whacking)..
.. and someone taught Xin levitation :p
Who brought out the bubbles ! Everyone scramble to the front for some bubble Fun
Time flies, when kids are having fun. We can easily spend fours hours at Hokey Pokey.
