Happy Children's day!!!


1st of all.... I really liked to thank all the parents for the help in making this year children day a success.... We would never have make this event a success if not for the food you guys brought.... The chicken wings, the satays, the otahs, the fish balls, the bee hoons, the hot dogs, the home made agar agar and not forgetting the drinks & desserts!! Thanks....

I'm really glad that I have so many supporting parents around who are willing to spend their sundays with their kids swimming coach. Haha... It sounds funny... but hey, it was a fun day for the kids!!

It was a crazy night... With so many kids running around... I can hardly keep them in places.... No kids could sit still for 5mins... Trust me, that's true!! 1 parent said to me... "Jerry... u r like a honey... see, wherever you go... all the kids follows... And today, you are the parent, cause what we say, they dun listen.. but what you say... they all listen..."

Haha...As if!! Look at how they bully me!!

Here are some photos for you to enjoy..... From the preparation of the children's day to the day itself... Look @ how crazy things were and how thoughtful this coach has been... hee... =p

Getting ready for the big event in a very tidy manner...

The tibits for the kids....
Their presents that their coach has choosen for them with thoughts...
On my front are their presents... @ the back, are their goodie bags in boxes!
The chalet for Our Children's Day Party 2007

This is the bbq pit. We booked 1 room hence we are entitled to just 1 pit, but it was just too small for us~ Hence, we used a second one on the right! And guess what? The manager came but luckily, he was very understanding and helped us make the neccesary arrangements... Over here, I would like to thank you for helping us make our children day's a pleasent one! Thank you!

The highlights of our event.... Fire sparklers!!

The kids just know how to play....

Running everywhere with the sparkles... Hee...

The parents having a nice break as they enjoy a moment of peace from the kids.. So, where are the kids!? =D
Kerstin and Desmond are pri 5 this year.... which suddenly strike me... I was in Pri 5 too!!
12 years ago... Not too old rite... =p

In case you are wondering what they are looking at... Its Jerry the Magician!
They are queing up for their beloved stuff... with half of the group already gone to play! So, this is just half the queue! When it comes to play... The kids help each other.. and not their teacher... Hee... My 1st batch of swimmers. From non-swimmers to swimmers.... I watched them grow... Parties are never fun without a group photo!

It's a children day's party. How can we missed out the big children!! 12 years ago.. we were in Pri 5! It's heartwarming to see all my long time friends doing well in life... And 1 of our pilot is leaving to the states for 3 years to train his flying skills... So, it was also a farewell party for him.. All the best Wei Hang!

Last but not least... The most important person behind the scene... My parents! All these were possible with their help... In a big company, they would be under the logistics department... Hee.. They were the ones who got all the bbq stuff, making sure the drinks were enough, the charcoal, the food etc were in places.... My mum was the sponsor for the curry for the 3rd year running. And my dad was the runner... Running here and there to get more cups, drinks, charcoal and ice... Thanks mum & dad!

Luckily this year, there was no rain!! We are really very lucky!!! Lookin forward to next year children day's party!!! Over here, I would like to thank everyone who has took time off their busy schedule to attend our Children Day's Party. Without your help and effort, the kids would never had so much fun. Thanks for all the support... SO here it goes...
