Skechers Friendship Walk 2018 Singapore

Skechers Friendship Walk 2018, this is the first time Singapore is hosting this walking event.

Skechers Friendship Walk 2018 is about celebrating Families and Friends 🙂
No need to run, it was a 5km easy walk.

But the weather had other plans. Persistent rain kept us indoor, I meant under the bridge.

We had fun participating in the carnival-like activities. Kids were challenging each other to complete the tasks first.

Family had Fun engaging each other.

Video: This is our walk through the drizzle 🙂

Skechers Mascots were spotted walking up and down. 
The walk was delayed 45 minutes. It was still drizzling and overcast, but the worst is over. Families and friends were eager to pace the scenic riverfront view along Bayfront and Gardens by the Bay East.

Rain or sunshine, we are always game, just wear a cap or grab an umbrella 🙂
Spotted many smiley faces, and the smaller kids were happy to be exposed to the elements.

There are three obstacles along the 5km route to challenge the kids. I figured the obstacles are a bit too squeezy for adults :p

The obstacles near the end point were all muddy oops, but our kids just dashed through without hesitation (guess they missed their Spartan race)

The rain never really left us. Families soldier on together, good opportunity to let the kids know that the real world is never perfect.

Do not wait for opportunities to drop at your feet, go out there and chase your rainbows!

It is always easier to travel together when we have siblings and BFF along us (Well, most of the time :p )

Always look at the positive side of things and remember to have FUN!

As we walked towards the end point, the sun is setting over Marina Bay skyline. However the overcast sky denied us a spectacular Sunset.

Interesting “end point”, many folks took their time to pose.

Walkers end the evening with a movie treat 🙂

I brought the family up Benjamin Sheares Bridge for a night view, no sunset though.

And that ended our first Skechers Friendship Walk 2018 event 🙂


ps.. We were invited by Skechers Singapore for this walking event

Boon Xin 9th Birthday

Happy 9 years old, Boon Xin 🙂
This photo was taken when she was 2.


From young, our princess is a feisty fellow. Ah Xin can be very strong willed and independent,  but Boon Xin always has our family in her heart.

Daddy and Mummy just want her to be Happy and Chirpy, always 🙂

Thank you to (Facebook and Instagram) for the cute Tsum Tsum cake! Boon Xin specially requested for Tsum Tsum as she remembered the cute  characters from her 8th birthday link .

We got an ice-cream drip cake for this round, this is still one of the cutest Tsum Tsum cake in the market 🙂

As part of the celebration, we also did a mini-filming for a Father’s Day segment on Ch8 news segment.

We would be sharing how families can have Fun in Singapore, without going to huge expenses. Try Parks, Sports and the great outdoors.

My idea is simply to drag the kids out of the house, so they would be less addicted to electronic devices.


Jenga and Monopoly are some of the family activities which we can enjoy at home 🙂

Managing our Family is all about Managing our Expectations, I admit this is Easier said than done. We are trying to encourage our kids to think Positive and aim for their Dreams.

How can we forget about Studies and homework? We pretend to be studious haha.

When you have teenagers, it is harder to ask them to cooperate during photo shoot (blog engagements eg).

I am honoured that my teenagers were very cooperative that day. They really 给我面子 (Give Face) haha.

I was telling the Mrs that this could be the last time SengkangBabies are filmed as kids are now older and might value their privacy more.

We are always advocating Sports for family bonding. Besides keeping fit, it is a great opportunity to keep our family strong.

I hope kids will pick up Sportsmanship traits like discipline and grit.

Do visit our Running, Hiking, Cycling and Camping features for more ideas.

These kids trash me in basketball, but I do not mind.  I am proud that the older siblings will pass down basketball tips to the younger ones.

No need to be professional players, I just want them to enjoy their sports and pursue their passions.


Did you notice our sports-themed attire? Whenever I go running, I will choose a kids-size finisher Tshirt for them.

YES, Boon Xin ran 21km :p

Spending the evening with her favourite folks, and food 🙂
奶奶 joined us at Sushi Tei for some yummy Japanese treats.

Another Birthday gone. Very Soon, all my kids will be teenagers, but we are still calling them Sengkang Babies haha.

As long as our kids are Happy and Healthy, we parents will be contented 🙂
