Family Day

Last Saturday, we had a very fun outing in daddy's company's Family Day. This fun occasion was one of the many events held to commemorate the company's 25th anniversary. The weather was extremely good and that was one crucial "requirement" met because all the activities were held outdoors, in the parking lot of the factory compound...

Yes, daddy works in a semiconductor factory and hence contributes to "Made in China" goods. We have since learned not to look down on things that are Made in China hahahaha! If you own a smartphone, camera or drive a luxury car, there is a high chance of them containing electronic components made in this factory ;)

Lively dragon dance (performed by their own staff including bosses) at the launch of the event

And then the fun began! My favourite was this inflated playland.

Followed by this grain-pit (sand pits are outdated already)

These "grains" are actually made of plastic so we were told.

In deep concentration... fishing was fun too!

Gotcha!

My catch of the day

I queued up twice for animal balloons

I played many simple carnival games

There were many, many such game "stalls"...

... as well as something more "violent" like Sumo wrestling

There were quite a lot of activities for kids... I enjoyed doing sand art too

We had lunch at the factory cafeteria but it was a catered meal from McD. I squealed in delight when I saw the Happy Meal box! :) However, they didn't serve fries (which was a good thing) and it was replaced by a grapefruit instead. 

These were all stuffed inside my Happy Meal box. Daddy had 4 meal vouchers so we had 4 of everything which was way too much for us to finish. We ended up lugging around 3 bottles of Coke, 2 grapefruits and 2 pieces of chicken chop... until we reached home!

Daddy brought us for a factory tour. The screens on the right are actually videos of the production floor in real time. He showed us his work station so now we know what daddy does at work every day :)

Some of the coupons that we "earned" from playing games (there were even more after this pic was taken).

At the end of the event, we made some gift redemptions. There were not many choices left (all the good gifts were snapped up) so we went for these made-on-the-spot ones...

Chinese dough figurine... I chose this colourful bird

Candy art... "drawn" with caramelised sugar/maltose syrup and placed on a stick to resemble a lollipop

Mummy ordered a giraffe one for me and the uncle got it done in under 30 seconds. Amazing!

My giraffe candy... nice?

And finally, we also redeemed a Dove toiletries pack and this cute "pillow" shaped like a bunch of bananas :)

  3. This is definitely one of the most fun family day organised by a company. How I wish that Shenny's dad would organise the same! Chloe is a very luckiest girl.
