Nokia Family Day at Sentosa

We went to the Nokia Family Day at Sentosa last Sat.
It was so fun. I din expect to stay at the beach for so long.
We reached there around 10am & stayed all the way till 3pm.
You can imagine how 'roasted' we were after that. I am the most serious cos I stayed long hours at the beach to accompany the boys :):)
My shoulder were so pain & red after that. It had been a week now & the skin is starting to peel off now.



Me with my 2 boys. Zac cannot quite take the heat when we first reached there. Look at his disturbing face..... haha.... however, he started to warm up soon when he saw so many fun stalls as we walked along.... :)
We each took out turns at the spray paint tattoo.
1st pic : Zac & his fire soccer ball
2nd pic : me & my red rose
3rd pic : hubs & his tribal version

The 2 boys playing at the bubble & tried their luck at the fishing stall. Zac got some prize cos he managed to caught 3 fishes within a min... haha.. .of course with the help of hubs ;p

Hubs & I tried our luck at some stalls too. We are proud to say that we actually bring home lots of prizes. All the game stalls are free games by the way so long we have the game coupon.

Zac eating the chicken cheese sausages, Oh man.. its so yummy. I think our family had more than 10 of it. All food & beverages are free too !! :):)
The boys are seated at the kid's corner playing some arts while snacking away. Hubs & I quickly sneak off to roam around....hehe ;p

Free flow of can drinks... the coconut drink way too sweet & refreshing.... wow !!
We had our lunch sitting on the mat here!!

Zac's mood was at his highest on that bungy trampoline. I thought he will be scare & din want to let him try. My little boy was so adventurous, much braver than mummy (I'm scare of heights !!). He loves the thrill & I had to queue up 5 times for him to play that.... LOL :D


Hubs took pictures of me by the beautiful sea. What a nice scene !!


Can you see how red & burnt my shoulders & arm were? Ouccchhhh, its really painful !!

The tattoo was from the paint spray too... nice or not? I chose the pic myself !! :)
Such a fun-filled day! A very good applause to the organiser of the event. I bet Nokia spent a BOMB !! :D

73 Hugs for Amos & Zac:

Amel's Realm said...

WOW...Such a FUN day indeed! I've been to Sentosa Island once and went to the beach and I know how HOT it is there he he he...

Ouch for the burnt skin. My skin also gets burnt easily, so I know how painful it is...uuuuggghhhh...

J@n!ce said...

GK : You visited Sentosa ealier this year? Did you watch the Songs of the Sea performance? It was beautiful. I want to go again !! :):)

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

Marzie : It was a last min ticket for us from a friend. He gave us 5 tickets for our whole family, including maid. So thoughtful :)

We made a silly mistake, the package came with free car entrance. Blur us still paid for it. Only to realize after payment... haiz. Actually the counter self was at fault too, she should inform us that entrance free since we have shown her the complete copy of the game tickets :p

Anyway, it was a nice family day for us :)

LadyJava said...

MakeTraffic said...

Hi Jan, ouch! the sun burnt looks painful! But looks like you and your family had lots of fun!

I can't remember when was the last time i went to the beach. I like riding bicycles at the east coast when i was young. I will bring my son to east coast or sentosa one day.

Cheers!

Hi Janice!

You know, there is nothing better than a fun day together with the family! I'm so happy for you. Sorry for the sunburn though. I liked the tatoos everyone had.
The scenery is something else, so beautiful. In Minnesota, we have many pretty lakes, but the ocean front is far far away. Right now, the lakes here are freezing solid. People put houses out on the ice... some of them very large. Sometimes you can here the ice crack, and move beneath you - scary!!!!

I enjoyed my visit today. Thanks for sharing your day with us :)

J@n!ce said...

LJ : The sunburnt hurts badly. I must rem to bring along sun block in future ;p

Its peeling now & looks really terrible. :(

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

MT : Its always a tiring & messy affair to bring the family out to the beach... sand & water makes it really messy.

Its been a while since I brought the boys to ECP, should bring them there to cycle ;p

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

Eric : Thanks for updating me on the winter looks of Minnesota. I've not get a chance to see the white snow. This is my dream. I'm scare of cold actually... I cant even stand 10 mins when the china snow sculpture team came to Sg for exhibition. It was exhibited at minus zero degree. I was all covered up but still cant withstand it. I have to beg my sis to exit soon after... haha :D

Janice Ng

HiPnCooLMoMMa said...

wow roasted Janice! hope you get an even tan especially after it has peeled off.

I can see that the sunblock didn't work really, or is it just too much exposure under the sun

Emila Yusof said...

Hi Janice! What a fun day at the beach! All the pictures are great!

shern's mom said...

J@n!ce said...

Aron : Moment like that can only be recap via photos & videos. Thanks :)

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

Sam Chan : I think so that Nokia paid for all unless they got sponsership from customers & suppliers. I agree that a bit of sun is all right occasionally. I actually like to be out in the sun. I'm so fair that I hope I get a little tan now n then....hehe ;p

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

Jean : So glad to see you over at mine now. Been missing you for a week or so now. YAY... welcome home :)

Thanks, I love the tattoo too. How cool to have it permanently... LOL...no lah, I think better off with temp ones so that I could change the design every now n then :)

The skin is starting to peel off now & it still gets itchy at times :)

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

Adrian : Nice to hear that you enjoyed the performance. It was a costly performance I heard but the millions I love the pyrotechnics ;p

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

The burn is healing now. Thanks :)

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

kegler747 said...

Beach and family is a perfect combination, always exciting!

I love Sentosa :) Is that Siloso or Palawan Beach?

J@n!ce said...

Carlo : You ask a good question. We followed the signup all the way up the the event place. Now I'm also unsure which beach it is. That goes to show how unfamiliar I am with Sentosa. I need to go more often... LOL :)

Wen said...
