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.
SengkangBabies sent the whole contingent down to Cold Storage Kid’s Run last month. Thanks to Marina Bay for the sponsorship 🙂
We arrive early and went under the checkpoint. Daddy told kids to pose like winners 🙂
We know it will be crowded later.
Heng family (BPDG) and Tan Family joined us to run around the Padang today Yeah !
The participants today are not only the young ones. Daddy will run with Kang and Yi, and even Mummy will tag team with Boon Xin.
Before the race, Mascots are roaming around to warm the kids up.
Boon Wee and Denver’s age group will get to go first, but they are in different groups.
Batch by batch, the kids Dash down the road when the airhorn is Blasted. This is 1600m category, kids are supposed to pace themselves ooops.
Parents are always eager to see how their kids perform, as they try to identify their little darlings among the crowd.
Wei and Denver have to clear 1,600M each. So Proud of them 🙂
Wei’s result :p
In life, there will always be ups and downs. We only wish our kids will pick themselves up after each fall, and learn from their mistakes.
A lot of parent bloggers were here this morning, but we only bump into Edmund and Sakura.
Daddy accompanied Kang on his 800M jog. Kang is happy to complete his circuit, and got rewarded with a medal 🙂
Yi joined Chloe and Gladys in the next category. That meant another 800M for Daddy.
Yi gets to climb higher for a better view (thanks to Phoebe for the photo)
Did you know that cheerleaders (in this case, HelloStrangers) will be cheering your kids. It helps when Daddy is also struggling to keep pace too keke 🙂
Finally, Xin participates in toddler’s category (they are not the smallest, there is even a Stroller category !!)
Daddy wonder whether Xin can run or not? She covered a whole 200m (out of 800m), before asking for and Mummy “hug hug”! Maybe 200M is considered impressive for her small legs :p
Running around the Padang provide good eye-candy for the kids. Maybe, it can help them to run faster. We enjoyed ourselves throughly, and the kids get to catchup with their buddies again.
That evening, everyone gets to show off their achievements and medals.
We would like to thanks Marina Bay for inviting us to the run 🙂
