Crowne Plaza Easter brunch invitation

[sponsored event]

Last week, we were invited to sample Crowne Plaza‘s Easter brunch at Azur restaurant. Everytime we pass by Crowne Plaza, we will mention to the kids that it is the nearest hotel to Changi airport.

Above photo, besides the Easter eggs (both hidden and those in the menu), free flow of balloons πŸ™‚

Besides the impressive see-through facade exterior, Crowne Plaza’s interior has a lot of natural sunlight flowing in through their glass panels. Kids love the see through rooftop !

The award winning Azur restaurant serves both Western and Eastern cuisines. Kids love the open-style concept kitchen.

Daddy suspects they kept returning to the dessert section !

Bird’s egg, this is also consider Easter egg right.. Yummy.

Great variety of Seafood delights !

We lost count of how many Cheese cakes our four little mice consumed …

When kids are happy, parents are happy. The menu at Azur will ensure your kids are well fed.

We hop over the Bar’75 to continue our Easter programme, but alas, we miss it due to our late appointment. The other kids were fabulous hunters !

Our friendly makeup artists dress our kids up as little Bunnies πŸ™‚

Who need Tiger and Heineken to make Merry, when we have eggs, makeups and tattoos ! Someone (hint the-one-who-is-not-tall-enough) attempted billiard too !

Meanwhile, Carrie kept Boon Xin busy, or is it the other way round?

Wei and Yi showing off their tattoos, what will discipline master do when he spot Wei’s forearm ang(1)kong(1) (painted pieces). The kids kept showing off their insect imprints to each other.

For those planning a staycation at Crowne Plaza hotel, Daddy is sure your kids will find the pool refreshing. Kids can swim in the maze like “boxes”, and hey, you might even spot aeroplanes over the horizon !

We would like to take this opportunity to thanks Crowne Plaza Hotel for extending the brunch invite to Sengkang Babies, although we came late, we enjoyed ourselves πŸ™‚

You can pop by Azur website for brunch menu and pricing.
Do pop by our Fanpage album for more photos.
– We apologised for the lack of food photos, as we were busy serving our hungry kids, but do hop over to Klessis and Isaiah‘s epic food portions ( salivate !)

Penang Day 3 am – Butterfly Farm

Our Penang Day 3 subject could be “caterpillar and the princess”. Boon Xin bravely let the creepy crawlie wriggle on her palm, but ran away when the butterflies came too near ?

It is our third day at Penang, and before we head for the butterflies, we took some additional photos to promote Penang Hard Rock.

Even our blog’s header photo is taken when our kids were enjoying themselves at our favourite swing. This is one of Daddy’s favorite family photo as it showcase everybody with an element of Fun !

Check out Day 2 post about Penang Hardrock’s pool.

Daddy introduce the Beatles to our kids. The kids do not know how BIG and Popular were the Beatles when they reign the 60s and 70s ! (Kids thought Daddy is talking about insects and reptiles). Daddy told kids Beatles were as popular as Kpops in their era.

On to Penang’s famous butterfly farm for some insect explorations. Entrance fees are RM27 for adults and RM15 for children.

We now understand the butterflies life cycle, from mating, laying eggs, hungry caterpillars, and morphing into pretty Butterflies.

We even allow some caterpillars to tickle our palms ! (Warning some caterpillars are poisonous, so do no grab any caterpillar you lay eye upon !)

..Love the golden cocoon, so classic !

Fruits and honey-laced flowers are used to attract the butterflies, allowing kids to go real near to them. Kids are always amazed at the butterflies hovering all over our heads. But Daddy remember there were more butterflies 10 years ago.

Besides Butterflies, we can also see millipedes, iguanas, spiders and scorpions in the enclosures.

The hugh insect posters makes your hair stands !

We bid farewell to the insects world..

Mythbusters needed to whack HP’s Folio 13 notebook

Are you a techie, or shopping for a new notebook, maybe you are a fan of Discovery Channel’s MythBusters? If you answer YES to any of the questions, HP is inviting you to test HP’s Folio13 at Marina Square, Central Atrium on 14/15Apr.

Brought to you by HP and Discovery Channel, this roadshow wants consumers to be Mythbusters, and challenge pre-conceived myths about Ultrabooks
(and maybe break some notebook myths too).

You are invited to discover HP Folio13’s hi-tech features and performance.
Daddy, for one, know that Ultrathin notebooks are lightweight, but suffers from short battery life. HP claims Folio 13 can last 9.25 hours !
