~ kids enjoying their breakfast ~
The event started with the National Anthem being played, followed by a speech by the principal. Then the children performed the pom pom dance. And next, the games began. We had earlier selected which games we wanted to participate in. The games required the parents and child to work as a team and also to team up with other families. We participated in 2 games but PaPa wasn't being very sporting (when we reached there, he has already made himself clear he won't be participating in anything *blek*), so I 'borrowed' SIL to be XY's "father". hehehe And likewise, I was CH's "father" in their event coz BIL wasn't feeling very well.

The last game was treasure hunt but we went to the nearby playground. There was a small pool next to it. Many children were playing water there, including the kindy's students. We had been notified earlier that we can use the facilities (playground and pool) at the Community Hall after the event. Although I brought the kids' swimming costumes, I didn't let them play in the pool. The water was errr... not very clear (I think enough of brownish water for the week). :D
At the playground...

~ see, samseng or not? ~
~ he can spin/play with the wheel for a VERY long time ~
~ finally got bored with the wheel, went for some sliding fun ~
On our way to the car, we met the principal. She passed us a gift as our team won the treasure hunt. How nice, at least XY got a souvenir to bring home coz we didn't win anything in the games earlier.
We went for lunch and reached home at 2+. It was a very tiring day for all of us (especially the old folks :D). I was totally knocked-out once I lied down on the bed. Even after a 4-hour nap, I still slept early with the kids at night.
