Get ready for three days of activities, great offers and prizes at the Young Parents Fiesta!
Event: Young Parents Fiesta 2009
Venue: Marina Square Atrium
Date: 26 June – 28 June 2009
Time: 11.00AM – 9.00PM (daily)
I met my hubby at 5 pm at Cityhall MRT and made our trip to Marina Square for the Fiesta.
I opted to have our dinner first before we proceeded to the event. I have dinner many times in Sakae Sushi, but never in Marina Square Branch. Both of us had ramen and when our food was here, I had a shock!
Wow, such a BIG bowl, I exclaimed.
It's BIG & HEAVY
The waitress smile. (I must be very ignorance.)
Anyway, we had chosen to sit on the floor so that we could manage Yvette easily. (I was really afraid Yvette could reach out to the Sushi on the converter belt as I recalled the dinner I had with my niece at TPY Sakae Sushi.) They have this baby chair from Safety 1st for Yvette, as usual; Yvette didn’t want to be belt in the chair.

During dinner, my niece called and told us she will come down and joined us. (She skipped her class.) However we didn’t manage to wait for her in the restaurant as we couldn’t keep Yvette occupied anymore.
My niece and her boyfriend arrived shortly after we left the restaurant. We asked them to go for their dinner while we proceeded to the event.
I always want to be the subscriber of Young Parent and have been following closely of the free gift they are offering. But most of the times, the gift did not push me to do so. (Who don’t look forward for freebies?) Anyway, I was kind of late. When I enquired about the free gift over the counter, it was all taken up. Wow! It’s unbelievable! It is either there were many new subscribers or the number of free gifts was limited? And the saving for the first year was $6; the second year was $14. This’s not a good trade off for me to get a free gift that I have no use at all.
In the end, I didn’t sign up for it.
We moved around the fair and were constantly approached by those staffs at the booth. We ended up entering the baby cover look contest for fun. This is not the first time Yvette was taking the photo-shoot (in fact this was her third time) but I realized every time she needs to be warmed up. Luckily my niece was around.
We have to wait for an hour for a free complimentary photo. We shopped around just to kill time. Nothing really interests me as I am not buying. We went back to the booth to check was the photo ready after 45 mins. (I wanted to go Carrefour and it was somewhat late too). And yes, it was ready!
The complimentary Pic. (Our scanner is not working and we used our camera to pic it)
We headed Suntec after we collected the photo. We pop-by Harris Bookstore too as they were having a close down clearance sales. Yvette dozed off. Argh! (How she was going to sleep at night?!?!?)
When we stopped over to have snack at Auntie Annie, Yvette woke up to join us. Feeling very tried to move on but hubby “encouraged” me. (Actually I wanted to buy CD box to pack our CD.) Unfortunately, I didn’t find any CD box that met my need. But something did interest me in Carrefour. They had revamped their baby department. It’s so clean and neat now.

I then realized when we checked out at the cashier, it was 10plus. Yvette was still very energetic. As my niece’s boyfriend drive, we went back to Marina Square to get his car as the night was still “young” for us.
We reached home at 11 plus. I quickly bathed Yvette and soothe her to sleep. Yvette entered her lala land at 12.15 am and slept peaceful thereafter. (Once awhile late-night is still healthy for baby!)
