Surviving Gardens By The Bay – National Day Concert Picnic

I’ve always been a fan of steamboat, BBQ, and picnic. So, when I saw this National Day activity which is held at Gardens By the Bay with lots of kids activities, I immediately told the kids that we shall have a picnic on Sunday.

On that day, I woke up and was thinking to myself if it is the right decision because I forgot that she has dharma class that day, so it means that I need to push both trolley and my picnic stuff around (hubby was working)! But since a promise is a promise, so I should just go ahead, prepare the picnic stuff and head out of the house.

Helping to push but that lasted awhile only.. lol.. better than nothing

Luckily, I decided to make the decision to take a cab instead of public transport. I didn’t know we needed to Q to go in! Thankfully, we secured a good spot with no sun shining on us! Must thank the taxi uncle who is very patient with me and helping me with all my barangs. I got so much stuff that the security laughed when it was my turn to check the bags. Hahaha..

We reached!!
Survived!! Hahaha.. makeup still there… hahaha
Didi, let’s selfie.. why u ignore me..
Start drinking their honey bbt.. shiok for the hot weather
My turn!

Things(Checklist) you need to prepare for a good picnic:

1. Food and snacks (kind of obvious haha), but you must bring a few varieties, especially if you have different age groups like mine.
2. Drinks. Lots of it, because the weather is very hot and with the different activities, the kids get thirsty very easily. I packed 2 bottles of water, excluding their own water bottles, some drinks, and even bought bubble tea.
3. Fruits. The best! Thirst-quenching and everyone’s favorites snacks.
4. Toys, for the kids. Keep them occupied while waiting for activities.
5. Big picnic mat. I believe in comfort so even with only the 4 of us, I still brought along the big picnic mat. Which is good, especially for Didi, he can roam around and charming the aunties sitting beside us.
6. Lastly, plastic bag for the rubbish. I brought one along, but since I got 1 for my bubble tea, so I just recycledthat. 🙂

One container of snacks, fruits and drinks.
Rubbish bag 😛

Have A Say!

Hi, I’m Qiqi. Thanks for stopping by! I started out blogging way back in 2004 about my modeling, pageant and everyday life. I stopped blogging for a period of time as life got busy with career, building my businesses and having my first child in 2011.

When I got back to blogging, with inspiration of my children, I’ve transformed my blog to be more informative for parents and spreading positive energy for ladies to feel great about themselves and their lives. Read more about me here.
