Singapore Blog Awards Finalist - that's us!

(Daddy is chuffed)

UPDATE: Read about our e-interview with omy.sg HERE.

Well, hello there! Ever since I took over the reins from my dear wife Sharon in April 2005, I have been chronicling my Fatherhood journey for a good 7 years now. And when I first started, I had no readers. No, family & friends don't count. 

Looking back, I do cringe when I re-read some of my previous blog posts. But I would like to think it was a tremendous and fruitful learning journey for me - not only to be able to participate fully in the growing up years of my 3 monkies, but also to enjoy new experiences and make new friends through our blog.

So, if you are visiting us for the first time, welcome! If not, welcome back! And if you’re not visiting at all…uhm... I would love to know how the heck you are reading this!

And we are extremely honoured (and jubilant, obviously) to have our blog chosen as one of the Top 10 Finalist for the Best Family Blog category in the Singapore Blog Awards 2012.

I was completely over the moon when I got the news. As for the wifey, the first thing she asked was if I would sponsor her a new dress for the ceremony. Riiiight.

So anyhow, I guess I have to provide you with compelling reasons for you to give me your vote.

Hmmm...

My kids are super duper cute?


Okay, so I am biased.

How about we love exploring all kids-related activities in Singapore? Yes, both outdoor and indoor FUN stuff!

I also did a series on the 100 Holiday Activities for kids for last year's December School Holidays. Oh, and not forgetting my annual Christmas Shows at the Malls list as well.

We love travelling too, and our more memorable travel logs include our Cebu jaunt, Sydney to Brisbane East Coast Road trip, as well as our recent Farm Stay in Johor.

To showcase my emo side, I talk about parenting-related issues that have shaped me to be the Dad I am today. And also my 2-parter on the 36 things that I had learned since becoming a Dad was my most emo state yet.

I hope the above posts provide a good enough snapshot of what our blog entails. And also, a better understanding into why I am so fiercely dedicated to being the best Dad that I can be to my 3 monkies.

Oh... erm... did I mention I need your VOTES? Because I totally DO! VOTE HERE!
You would have to register with omy.sg first if it is your first time voting. And subsequently, you can vote once PER DAY. All the waaaaay until voting ends on 30 June 2012! So you know what to do, don't you? :p

Of course, you stand to win PRIZES just by voting too!

And if you are still unmoved, I have Plan B.


So if you have enjoyed reading our blog all these while, please support us by voting for us HERE! Thanks! :)
