A couple of months ago, we went to the newest theme park in Beijing. The kiddo’s actually been bugging us about it even months before its opening day last year but has been quite busy and waiting for the right time… like spring. So when a friend gave us complimentary tickets sponsored by a magazine for expats – free entrance and rides, the kid was really ecstatic! At one point during our day at the park, I saw the magazine’s photographer taking our son’s photo. The stage mom in me got excited it might get published. After a week, we saw not only 1 but around 5 photos in their website! My, we didn’t even notice that guy around us while we were having so much fun! Another week passed by and my friend who gave us the tickets informed me to get the latest issue. And so our hunt for the magazine began.
Got our copies (yeah, we took the last 2 copies) from our favorite hawker-style Singaporean Restaurant. Of course, it’s just proper that we should also enjoy the food. We had Chicken Rice, one of the best we’ve had in the country’s capital.
Yummy Mee Goreng with crispy chicharon (pork cracklings), need I say more?
Here are the shots from the June/July issue of the magazine. He’s the boy in black tee and a yellow cap flashing his two front teeth.
And he’s also the poster boy for their Kid Olympics held at, incidentally, the sports facilities of a hotel project we did few years ago. Haha! Some moms would be happier with a talent fee… but I am just so proud his face is in the glossy pages for being the picture of a happy, lovely, active boy.
