Earlier in one of my posts, I mentioned that I have the honour of being a NTUC U Family Blog Champion this year to promote the building of strong and happy families in Singapore.
As a U family member, you can look forward to family bonding events, networking lunches for like-minded working parents and interest group get-togethers. U Family makes networking accessible, parenting information available and most importantly, family activities affordable. After all, what binds the family together best is an activity that the whole family can take part in.
Now I know you’re thinking that you hate crowds and don’t need to attend events to bond as a family?
Well, I’d say you are half right (and by the way, I used to think just like you!).
It’s true that you don’t need to attend mega events to bond as a family. But if you are usually strapped for time and don’t have time to think of fun activities to do as a family or you are simply tired of bringing your children to the same old playground – going to the shopping centre together hardly counts as a bonding activity by the way, you may want to re-think how you feel about attending mega events.
My hubby and I are hardly crowd-lovers and we were apprehensive about having to attend a mega event but NTUC U Family’s U Picnic at the Marina Barrage has changed our impression of such events. Not only did we have the usual fun of a picnic, we managed to soak in the wonderful atmosphere of family warmth that evening, watching many other families enjoying themselves too at the event. And the event venue was so well chosen, we hardly felt that there was a crowd despite the fact that there were thousands of people there that day!
We had so much fun at the picnic that we’ll be attending the U family’s Mega Dance too!
