uFamily encourage us to participate in family activities

Friends sometime lament about lack of time and venues to engage in family fun.
They wonder why we got so much time, and venues to enjoy family time.

As one of NTUC’s uFamily Blog champions, our job is to encourage more families to go out and play. Read on to discover how uFamily will reward you to participate in family activities 🙂

Everyone only got 24 hours a day.
If Daddy is not making an effort to engage the kids, he will be watching movies, busy with PS2 and Wii, or even sleeping zzz. Blogging seems to be a more wholesome pastime, Daddy gets to document our family memories, and we can share our experiences. Read our blog Vision :

~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~
SengkangBabies’ Vision
– influence parents to inject Fun into their kiddos life stages
– get more parents to engage their kiddos in daily activities
– spend more time with kiddos and strengthen bonds
– mold a “Happy and Fun” childhood for our kiddos,
there is afterall, only one childhood
~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~

With uFamily, we will be sharing upcoming events which are suitable for families.
Did anyone went picnicking at Marina Barrage last Sat? Read how uFamily Blog Champions enjoy a fun-fill family day 🙂

On 24Nov, MegaDance would rock the dance floor. Kids will be the stars !

And we suspect Gangnam Kancheong style will be Hot this Nov !

Meanwhile, pop by our Fun-itinerary page to research your next playgrounds 🙂

If we ever run out of playgrounds (ideas), we just consult our kids.
Give them a Nikon D4, a pail of water (not in-house!), and see what mischief will hatch :p

Daniel’s cook-for-family initiative

Love our family, maybe cook for our family?
Daniel from Danielfooddiary has gathered more than 100 bloggers to cook for their families.

To quote from Daniel :
=== === === ===
The #CookForFamily is a Singapore food bloggers initiative – there is no competition, sponsors, or hidden agenda involved. It is created with a simple objective of getting more bloggers, and hopefully their fans and followers, to start cooking and bonding with their families.

The bloggers have picked a day in July to cook a meal for their family or loved ones, and will blog, tweet and instagram about their cooking, experience and thoughts all on the same day – 6th August 2012 (Monday), with the hashtag #CookForFamily.
=== === === ===

Notice Daniel did not indicate only food-bloggers can participate. So Daddy (who sucks at cooking), can happily whip up a simple egg dish. If Daddy can do a french toast, everyone can do it.

As usual, Daddy add a disclaimer for the kids. It is not the end product, but the process, which matters. We woke up earlier on a weekend just to enjoy an extra hour or two of family bonding 🙂

If you are curious, nobody suffer any stomachache afterwards. If you have a twitter account, all the food-family blogs are at this hashtag #CookForFamily.

Otherwise, you can get the links from Daniel’s page –> http://danielfooddiary.com/2012/08/03/the-cookforfamily-initiative/

We should do this more often 🙂
