Anyway, as a follow-up to this entry that I did, I managed to get an invitation to the Nuffnang FRISO family day out in Kizsports 1 Utama last Saturday. At first, we were a little worried since little jj fell ill earlier that week and was vomitting away by Wednesday. Thank God, she recovered on time, though not fully, as she just got back some of her appetite, while her body tires easily.
Her usual Saturday morning class at Kizsports were cancelled due to this event and their receptionists were surprised when they saw us with little jj hehe...
the t-shirt given was too big but daddy made it fashionable for little jj.
abang supposedly got one too but it was too small for him :D
just a fraction of the crowd of families, while Friso's representative spoke.
how do we get little jj to sit and forget the swings?? right... mommy's boobies session!!
There were so many fun-filled activities and Kizsports also promoted their classes for babies by giving a sneak 20-minute preview to all parents with toddlers. Little jj made herself at home from the start by targeting the swing first, then the ball-pool and after that, her favourite section in the playland, just like she would each Saturday.
customary swinging in style, while abang pushes the swing...
daddies and mommies letting their babies have a go at the babies' section while their other half clicks away at the shutter...
part of the sneak preview, but in a much larger crowd...
there was even a magic show!
look at the large turn out...
was able to get a shot of us both, using the auto timer :D
All these while I eagerly await the announcement of the winning entry. Though I wasn't the least bit hopeful in the beginning, I did get a little excited when I was informed that I had been shortlisted for the final selection of entries during registration early in the morning. Of course, I already could guess that Kak Ros of MomBloggersPlanet would definitely win since her entry was seriously creative and original... and am so proud to be associated with her site.
Since it was my first real bloggers' meet, I wasn't sure how to carry myself and a little shy when I heard the mention of so many of them recognisable bloggers... but I did get to know Amira and Zuhaini, met Kak Ros for the first time, while I said hi to several other people whom I can't truly remember their URLs. Even saw Red Mummy in person for the first time and I was so impressed by the aura that she exude that day - a true 'Celebrity-blogger' persona. I must add how happy I was for that opportunity to shake hands with her ;)
The event was pretty organised; Marcus, the emcee, did a great job in getting everyone's attention; the crowd was AMAZING; and everything in the programme line-up was truly interesting for everyone. Too bad little jj slept half way through the event but it was good that she totally enjoyed herself to the max.
a special makan section for the kids. yes, it was that organised!
Marcus, doing a good job getting all our attention :)
little jj getting all excited.
getting a go at the obstacle course in the baby gym.
flat tired and surrenderred to the worrrlddd...
the one told me that for just a simple blog entry and we had all that fun and this to bring home, blogging can be one advantageous hobby.
So... I'm hoping to blog more frequent now that the entire madness of rushing for the usual annual report/fund report deadlines from my regular clients is pretty much over... and hopefully be able to make it to many more family gatherings like this.
