Millennia Kids Challenge 2016, cycling

[ Media Invite ]

We did not hesitate when we got an invitation to join Millennia Kids Challenge 2016, we had enjoyed our 2015 5km ride experience 🙂

Millennia Kids Challenge 2016 was both fun and sporty, and it offered another opportunity for families to bond through active lifestyle. It helped that the events was organised in our neighbourhood.
Millennia Kids Challenge 2016

Families and bikes are ready !

Let’s go! 9 km around our neighbourhood. Overall a nice fun cycling gathering, but I would have prefer more marshals (or perhaps closure of one lane).
Some kids struggle up slopes and bridges, and might stray into another lane. It can be hard to manage the group when we are crossing traffic junctions.

Perhaps we can consider PCN (Parks Connector) to Waterway Point and back next season (8km)

Someone had to detour and left us after 6 km :p

Spidey was part of the convoy, and he was very popular for selfies 🙂

Millennia Kids Challenge 2016 allowed families to participate in obstacles challenge (confirm less tiring then Spartans) or go for a 9km cycling route. The “obstacles” include tennis, soccer and Aqua challenges too!

Sengkang Sports complex was filled with enthusiastic families.

Nutritional meals, Sports and tobacco free, these are good starters to keep fit and stay Healthy. I always tell the kids cigarette is super expensive, they can buy a Happy Meal (ok, perhaps fast food not the healthiest too, everything in moderation hee hee )

Active Lifestyle everyone, Move It Move It 🙂

Sengkang Babies’ HDB story

Today, we will talk about SengkangBabies’ HDB (Housing Development Board) Story. It is quite obvious SengkangBabies call Sengkang home (家) right 🙂

If we have a timeline for Sengkang’s history, it would look something like this.

1999 – we got the key to our new house

2000/2001 – ROM and Wedding ceremony

2003/2005/2007/2009 – Every two year, one baby pop out 🙂

2009 – SengkangBabies blog was born together with Boon Xin, our princess.

The Beginning

A house is not a home.
We started with a dream.
We wanted to build our future together.

As we sketch out our masterplan, colours, material, designs symbolise our ideal home (家). As the months went by, we see our Hall, Kitchen and rooms taking shape.

We are Proud owners.

As we renovate our house, Sengkang is also undergoing upgrading. Since we move in a decade ago, Compasspoint, MRT 2003, integrated interchange, and wet market slowly came on board.

Maybe the policy makers had intentionally left out the cinemas and shopping centers.
When couples are lonely, Sengkang experience a small baby boom :p

New Family

This is our HDB story.
We have build up our 5-room nest over the last decade.
Time flies !

Other than a slightly more messy nest, no thanks to the kids, you can expect to hear laughter (most likely from kids) and occasionally screams from yours truly and Mummy.

Either way, our home is always lively, never quiet.
No points for guessing who are the parent’s little nemesis haha 🙂

Our Neighbourhood

We love Sengkang so much, we named our blog “SengkangBabies 盛港宝宝” 🙂
Sengkang (and Punggol) neighbourhood is our playground, our home, our childhood.

What about the kids? Do they love their home, neighbours, school and friends? We have provided a warm loving home for our kids, and we are glad the siblings are bonding well.

We ask our children to draw their home. Some draw HDB, while others prefer bungalows. We can see cartoons of our family and the “imaginary” pet 🙂

With our HDB flat, Mummy and Daddy’s Dream of a Happy Family has been realised.
