SAFRA Singapore Bay Run & Army Half Marathon is here again

[ Tickets Giveaway ]

My kids are quite active in sports. From swimming to cycling, from jogging to hiking.

Besides improving their fitness, I believe sports will mold their character and make them more positive (perseverance, sportsmanship etc).

My intention was to keep everyone healthy, I am now more motivated to run myself. And it is always a joy when familes do sports together.

Army Half Marathon (also known as Safra Bay Run in 2014) was our first family run, Boon Yee was 7 then but completed his 5km race in style.

We had not stop running since then, and kids have mostly upgraded from 800m race :p
By the way, those 800m runs (kids call it 800m SPRINT) are a good way to kick start the kids’ interest in sports.

SAFRA Singapore Bay Run & Army Half Marathon is back again on 28th Aug.

To encourage more families to stay active, we have three pairs of tickets (5km category) to giveaway.
(Each ticket public-price is worth $25, contest details at the end)

Wet Hello Kitty run, but SUPER Fun!

[ Media Invite ]

You seldom see Daddy (and boys) wear Pink Hello Kitty t-shirts. But we had to make an exception for Hello Kitty’s biggest fan, Boon Xin.

If the girl loves it, Daddy will even pose girly photos with plush toys haha (Hello Kitty Goodies bags collection earlier)

Nevermind the vehicle and human jams, never mind the downpour. 17,000 feline fans had gathered at Harbour Front area for Hello Kitty run.

Everyone was eager to paste some cute tattoos.

Infront all Gloomy, but behind us all Sunny :p

Those standing near the front sang “Happy Birthday” with Hello Kitty and Daniel.

But why Hello Kitty never sing “Rain rain go away”? Cats and dogs pour down on Sentosa, and many families took shelter.

Although our underwear is not really soaked, we still have Fun and Wet photos to share :p

Met the super garang Cheekiemonkies, who chiong all the way in the rain 🙂


Due to the heavy rain, there was a huge jam at the finishing point. Everyone was queuing to get their Hello Kitty Run finisher medal. Those who fail to get their medals can pop by Hello Kitty Run Singapore Fanpage for instructions.

Kudos to the Hello Kitty organisers!
Although there was some hiccups at the end point, the volunteers stood in the rain to guide the runners. Running in the rain was a FUN experience for many families and friends.

Goodies bags collection (earlier) and the shuttle buses back to Vivocity was orderly and prompt.

Kids try to decorate our courtesy XC90 into a wedding car :p

Happy 40th Birthday Hello Kitty! You still look so cute 🙂
