VIP Private launch of VW GTI + Magazine feature.

Heya everyone! Hubby & I were among the first in Singapore and the whole of Asia Pacific to experience the launch of the all NEW Volkswagen mk7 GTI.

Come join us in the experience!
The guests had complimentary car wash service while having our dinners.

A fiercer, more powerful little machine with lots of new technology!

Who can resist the smell of leather in a new car!

Afterward, there was a talk and movie about the new GTI before dinner proper.

We were extremely privileged to be seated with Mr Steffen Schwarz, MD of VW.

Volkswagen Family Weekend fun

Hi all! We were invited to Volkswagen's family weekend and decided to bring the kids for some fun.
Activities include:
- Tri-cycle rides
- Kids golf
- Food art
- Creativity corner
- Mom's pampering corner
- Tasty snacks

The tri-cycle area where Adam played on the tracks.

Creativity corner

Snacks for all: chicken burger, coleslaw, and grilled potato. So generous!

Ice-cream too!

My glutton baby!

Super baby!

Come join me for some Mommy Pampering!

Enjoying back massage while Andy watched over Ashton and Adam went on the tri-cycle rides. Bliss!

Sorry...The boys don't get it!

My greatest gifts in the form of pure love.

Thank you Volkswagen and The Asian Parent for the invite!

About my little white car:

Shortly after Adam was born, Andy decided to trade in his old car (we used to drive Colt R and WRX, both manual cars... Damn beng can.. zzzzZZzz) for a auto-transmission car for me.
I was working shifts back then and studied in the evenings, and driving around with a baby meant that we had a tall order.

(Story here)

We did some research and decided on the VW GTI because it is a nice, compact yet powerful machine. According to Andy, I'm a super kayu driver so I need front and rear sensors, and the reverse-camera was an added bonus!
I wanted a white car, and it wasn't an available color, hence we placed an order and waited several weeks. Good things come to those who wait!
Presenting.... my white baby:

I like my car for the Park Assist function which comes equipped with front and rear sensors, and a built-in reversing camera which displays on the touch-screen for added safety. Good for kayu drivers like me!

My car is almost 4 years old now, same age as Adam.
I am so in love with him and can't bear to sell him away (the car, not the kid) because I feel that he is made for me.
That's why we decided to keep him and got another 7-seater for family outings instead (need a 7-seater to fit the kids, car seats and so many humans).
Thank you Hubby for giving me the best and second-best things in life. Love you so much!

Resorts World Sentosa: Marine Life Park

School's out!
My mummy-friend helped me get tickets to the all-new Marine Life Park at RWS from a Groupon deal.
Andy & I skipped Xmas shopping in town and instead brought my in-laws to RWS, armed with our two kids, huge bags and a pram.

Where: Resorts World Sentosa
Entry: we had the tickets for cheap together with meal vouchers, but I asked the staff and she told me normal adult tickets are priced at $29/pax. Children below 4 admit for free.

Adam was SO excited and behaved surprisingly well. He loves the ocean and anything water-themed.
Going out as a family is major operation. Can you see our bags (which took up half a seat), and our 2 children in our 7-seater?
We could fit everyone into my tiny white car, if we all arranged ourselves lying down and stacking on top of one another I guess.
Which way out Mummy??

First stop: lunch at the Malaysian Food Street where we used our meal vouchers. I love hawker food, oh flabby tummy!

My tame kids in their respective seats. But that's only because I threatened Adam that he would get lost and fed to the sharks if he ran around.

Andy & my in-laws had the Malacca chicken rice...

... while I shared Claypot rice with Adam. Have been craving for claypot rice for very long already. So happy to eat this, especially the slightly burnt rice at the bottom of the pot. Yum!
Apparently Singapore likes to be Number 1 in many things - we now have the world's largest Oceanarium at our doorsteps (give or take a 30-min drive).

My little botak darling trying to fit into the theme by wearing a Whale romper.

My oversized baby. He's gonna be 4 in a matter of months and I've given him his next birthday as a deadline for him to give up his bottle and night diaper. Good luck to me.

I was wearing a black blouse from Gap Kids with my pre-pregnancy Levis jeans.
Bag: Balenciaga in "raisin" color
Shoes: TODS purple ruched flats.
I kinda like Purple err thang!
