Nuffnang Friso Family Day Out

Remember I blogged about Curious Kid Needs to Be Tough Inside? Well, that got me (and family) invited to Nuffnang Friso’s Family Day out in 1Utama today. It was held in Kizsports & Gym, 1Utama, Old Wing.

What a great way to start the new year as I soon found out that many other bloggers are going to be there too. And sure enough, today, I met several of them :D

CH Voon and Vanessa, Cynthia (behind), Me, Breanna & Ethan and Mummy Ling

Who are the fellow bloggers that I met? Let’s see… I saw Via (and baby Dylan) as soon as I entered the venue (no photo with him though). Then I saw Cynthia, followed by pretty Mummy Ling and then Mummy Moon. I sneaked behind CH Voon to give him a surprise but ended up getting surprised myself!

Voon, I have only ONE thing to say to you – Your profile picture doesn’t do you justice, please change it! He is such a good looking dude, I had to check the tag on his sleeve to confirm if that was indeed HIM! :D

I met Chin Nee for the very first time too. I had to admit, I don’t know her as I don’t read her blog. But after seeing how adorable her twins and daughter are (not forgetting how friendly she is) I’ll definitely be following her blog from now on :D

Ethan enjoying himself with the sand art
Lots of Daddy and son bonding time too :)
Ethan amusing himself with the various activities around
Darling managed to squeeze in some time with Breanna too :)
My post also won me this RM100 Toys R Us gift certificate :D

This is definitely a great day out as not only I spent time with my family, I spent it with fellow bloggers who are actually very close to me :) Ethan certainly enjoyed himself. I enjoyed myself and Darling? Hmm.. I guess he enjoyed being a kid again going down the slide with Ethan countless times :D

    OMG… CANNOT put up my pic lerr…. I die later! Wait ppl see me laugh til golek golek on the floor cannot stop, den how? I look like kartun liddat. Better dun put. Besides, I want to remain anonymous. If's you've been reading my blog since 2 years ago, you will know why… cuz I also write bout politics stuff. Not all things that i wrote are pleasant, and i have a lot of enemies. It is safer for me, and my family to remain anonymous. Hmm… I think… must wear mask lah, if go out wif u. Eii, Merryn, when u free ah? These days busy anot? If I got drop by 1U…how to contact u for meet up ah?
