We were about to leave the house to Sentosa Underwater World, then we met Alvin, our neighbour at doorstep, telling us to join the SG50 NDP celebration with Funpack distribution as well as high tea buffet spread for everyone at our estate.
Our plan was to just to drop by to collect the Funpack, but the efforts from the management committee and GRC volunteers changed our decisions. Look at the banner, balloon arch and stand, games corner, the whole event was a small one but if everyone thought like us, will the event be successful? The advisor of the GRC was around too, the young volunteers were under the hot sun helping out, and all we, the residents needed to do was to be there, to support. Daddy and I told Asher our decision to stay and he was agreeable, because he knew Niki would be there too.
Knowing the food may not be suitable for our fussy kid, we went out for proper lunch and came back home for the event. We were grateful, thanks to the management committee and GRC members for their efforts, we did not have to go to the nearest cc to collect our SG Funpacks.
Asher was happy as he got to pen down a line or two on the wishes card, do sand arts, get free balloon sculpture and meet some kids.
Some said all these are unnessesary, wayang before GE2015, whatever the case is, we are thankful, for everything.
