Was honoured to be invited to SmartKids Asia 2017 2 weeks ago @ Expo and brought along my whole family to experience this fun filed day.
We went especially early at opening hours to better experience the full day of line ups.
Aside from the play activities like hands on crafting & colouring booths, SmartKids Asia also provides storytelling corner by National Library Board, inflatable rides eg. bouncy castles and slides, talent time, meet and greet (PORORO!) and also insights of enrichment classes,
We also got to redeem goodie bags as well as food and drinks from London Rolls, Marigold and Loacker wafers, yums!
SmartKids Asia Centre Stage
SmartKids Asia Storyland corner provides story telling in form of theatrical plays, explains why there was an erected stage.
Though the key purpose of this trip was to let Ry enjoy the Meet and Greet session with Pororo and friends, our listed agenda is to also check out available enrichment courses we could sign Ry up for. Though there are many enrichment courses that had prep the child to be future achievers be it in school or adulthood, we still looking to sign Ry up for something that involves of more fun and play with no strings attached.
After speaking to a few vendors, we are planing to go for few trial classes before signing up with them.
Let me give you brief run through of the different courses provided at SmartKids Asia:
Music lessons, Phonics, Public Speaking, Baking, Art & Crafts, Whole Brain Training, Reading & Writing Program, Takewondo, Pre-School Education etc.

Marigold UHT colour corner for little children.
Really not easy trying to get my lil monkey to take a picture.
Oh look! I’m due for pump and I’m doing it among a sea of people because I don’t really care and I’m sick of people judging.
Staff from Pororo Park gesturing little kids to come nearer to the stage.
Spot my little pumpkin holding her favourite character, Crong.
He is that little green dinosaur in the animated series Pororo, that only knows how to say his name ‘Crong’ and he is also adorable max.
Pororo lai liao!
The performance last only 15 mins and then came the photo session.
I panicked a little coz I’m only 10 mins into pumping (usually 30 mins per session) and the crowds are clearing the floor but I try to ‘Keep Calm and Continue Pumping’ after photo session. What I did was pause my pump, get dressed under my cape, stuffed my pump flange in the side pockets of my haversack and went in for phototaking with the mascots. And when I’m done, I ‘Keep Calm and find a corner’ (any corner) to resume pumping.
