~ The Greenwich V Experience - Amazing Race ~

11th Feb 2012 - Sunny Day! Mommy, together with 14 other bloggers were cordly invited to participate in the Greenwich V Experience Challenge! The bloggers were split into 3 teams, namely Village, Urban and Lifestyle and our task is to go on an amazing race within the new retail mall - Greenwich V which just had its grand opening! -

Our meeting point - Empire State restaurant.

We are the Lifestyle team and our dress code is RED. I guess we made a pretty grand entrance with our team's family and kiddos joining us in this event. It is a SEA of RED and it looks as if we are going to a post Lunar New Year party or National Day celebration. ^_^

Let's meet our team members which consists of mainly parent bloggers!

Team Leader - Andy Lee
Caption Writer - Klessis Lee
Caption Writer - Sandra Tan
Time Keeper - Paul Chen
Photographer - Phoebe Lau 

The rule of the game is our team's game master, Jesslyn will be holding on to the clues that will direct us to the next destination. We will need to guess the correct store, fulfil our task before moving on to our next clue and to the next station. In the event if we fail to make a correct guess, we will have to serve our punishment - star jumps!

After a sumptuous meal at Empire State, we gathered at The Plaza (level 2) for the flag off! Who will be the winning team??? Since we have a lot of kiddos joining us, SAFETY COMES FIRST! It's not an easy task having 9 young children going on an amazing race climbing up and down the stairs in a super hot day! Kudos to our macho hubbies, understanding wife and forever cheery kiddos for making this race fun and unforgettable.

We climbed up, we moved down, we went round and round and we didn't get lost! ^_^

We covered 10 stations within the 2.5 hours. In fact, we were the fastest team to complete all our stations. (It's a pity that time is not a factor to determine the winning team. hehehe). Everyone helped to keep a look out, and take care of the children. Our kiddos are energetic and fantastic eaters! Waffles, french fries, yogurt, cakes, drinks etc will not escape their eyes! Muaahhhh....

As a team, we FIND, we EAT, we POSE, we LAUGH and we had fun TOGETHER!
Our pose and various stations :)

Makan session throughout the amazing race challenge. We get to try all sorts of yummy-licious food!

The children didn't mind taking on the punishment for us. Thank you Gladys for doing the star jumps!Many loves and big hugs!

We completed our race and everyone is tired... our kiddos continue to entertain themselves with the magic show while the photos and captions are being uploaded. Mommy is still an amateur when it comes to photography and I was a bit jittery when I was tasked to be the photographer. :)

Thanks to our caption writers Klessis and Sandra with their quick thinking minds and beautiful lines for the photos. Paul has been a great sport doing his facial scrub in front of our young spectators and keeping track of the time throughout the race. Not forgetting our steady and dependable leader, Andy for keeping the team together in an orderly fashion. ^_^

We won the 2nd prize - $200 vouchers (Thank you Greenwich V!)

With Urban and Village team left for the first prize of $300 vouchers! The winner is.......... the Village Team in GREEN! Congratulations to all teams! ^_^

Goodies that we brought home after the race...

It was the first time Mommy took part in a blogger event! Thanks to OMY, Far East and all the other outlets, we got to know new friends, enjoyed a lot of delicious food and had a lot of excitement roaming around the mall.
