The Grand Opening of Vital Years in Setia Alam

I went to the Grand Opening of Vital Years’ latest centre; their 79th to be exact, in Setia Alam today.
Tel: 03-3343 1129/ 012-295 9345 (Gen Lim)
Before I bring you on a tour of the place, let me make you drool with the food first :P The blueberry cheese tart is to die for, seriously! The yam cake is Darling’s favourite. I had to try it when he told me it was THAT good and true enough, they just melt in my mouth!

Ok, a little off topic there. Just bear with me as I can still taste those food in my mouth!

The pretty corsages for the bosses, drinks and sweets for guests :)
Here’s the reception area, classrooms and playroom. Can you spot Ethan acting busy there? :D
What’s a Grand Opening without those flower stands? The more, the merrier :D
Vital Years books and the interior of the Centre – So cute!
Crowd starts filling up space.. Enjoy this moment as it is going to get pretty chaotic after this.. :P
It gets crowded pretty fast and to have some crowd control and also to bring the noise level down, the kids are ushered into the playroom with a facilitator watching over them :)
The event officially started with a short note from the kids of the Directors themselves. Those 3 kids and their 3 mommies, good friends till the end :)

The gifts for the little readers who put up a brave front reading in front of the big crowd :)
The response is really good. Excited parents keep on coming in by droves up to the point there are no longer chairs available for visitors to sit. Thank goodness they are very patient. You can see here they are standing even while making enquiries :)
By then, the place is getting rather too crowded I can’t even lift up my hand to snap pictures. Time to grab a bite and after saying my adios to the Directors and all concern, Darling, Ethan and I made our way out of the crowd and safely into our car :D

Mother’s Day moment – Selisa and her son, Ian :)

But before you go, here’s Ethan’s first ever public reading today :)
I apologize for the poor audio quality though.. :(
