SpongeBob SquarePants Krabby Patty Celebration ‘Live’ On Stage (City Square Mall- Christmas 2015) – Media Invite

Every year the kids will need to do at least 1 of their Annual Christmas Live Show/ Meet & Greet Sessions at a mall (yes I know they don’t just do it during Christmas ;P) But somehow the ambience is always little merrier and more special during the festive season.

This year they chose to attend the SpongeBob SquarePants Krabby Patty Celebration ‘Live’ On Stage at City Square Mall. Honestly they aren’t really fans of SpongeBob or at the very least have not been exposed to the cartoon series yet. However SpongeBob and his best friend Patrick in their larger than life costumes were so infectiously funny that the kids were drawn to them really quickly.

The thing I love about the shows at City Square Mall is that you don’t find yourself ‘queuing’ or waiting for 1-2 hours, only to find that the show is 10 minutes long or that the characters appear for 2 dance numbers and then leave abruptly.

SpongeBob’s little party was approximately 20-30 minutes long if you include the prelude/ skit we enjoyed before the main characters came on stage. Yes there was a prelude! Which was also Jah’s first time on stage in front of a live audience at a mall! I think I was more nervous than him but he was all game to go onstage and help out the nice friendly pirate :p

If you or your kids are fans of SpongeBob and his friends then you shouldn’t miss this Live Show which is ending its run this weekend. And even if you aren’t fans of the yellow spongy fella, there are enough crazy fun, catchy tunes and a storyline for a bit of weekend entertainment.IMG_6794

Carnival Fun @ City Square – Good Ole Fun In The Park [Media Invite]

We recently visited City Square Mall again so that the kids could try out some of the rides at its Good Ole Fun In the Park Carnival. Honestly we have been spending quite a lot of time at this mall, given that one of Jah’s favourite shop is at this mall (haha care to guess which one? :p)

The kids especially Jah was ecstatic when I told him we were going to a carnival. I’m not quite sure what he really imagines a carnival to be like but I suppose the word carnival just appeals to him. He was also really excited to know there would be bumper cars as well and insisted that that was THE ride for him.

However that all changed when we got there and mummy ended up on the teacup ride with both kids. Don’t laugh! The teacup ride was quite high on the dizzy factor but we all enjoyed it! Do note though that they don’t exactly allow an accompanying adult to go for free and so the adult also has to pay for a ticket. Not sure about the other rides though but that was what happened for the tea cup ride.

Jah was tempted to try mummy’s favourite childhood carnival ride, the pirate ship but he was a little put off by the genuine screams of the little ones. 🙂 Maybe next time..

Highlight of the day for everyone was the Choo Choo Train ride..the ride that would go round the City Green thrice. The kids loved it when the train driver would honk at people to get out of the way. The last time we took this train, it was around Christmas and Bella was still a little clueless at 18 months old. But she throughly enjoyed herself this time around. While it was definitely a squeeze for the 4 of us to fit into that little coal car, it was really good fun and you can see from all our happy faces. 🙂

So if you would like to bring your kids down for some good ole carnival fun, head on down to City Green (in front of City Square Mall).
