Hi mommies,
I have order the food from Liangfood catering since there is one mommy requested halal food.
I chose package A the cheapest one and this promotion price is till 14 Dec 08 so lucky our gathering is on the last day of their promotion. hehe. I ordered for 30pax but there is still a charge of $18 for transport unless is 45 pax then got free delivery.
So the total cost will be $303 nett.

hashisan,
So will u be able to join in the gathering? when u can confirm huh?

Mommies,
I ordered the food for 30 pax, do you all think I shall order more like 35 pax cause now we got about 40 person leh. Scare later the food not enough??

<font color="aa00aa">Mummies,
I'm wondering if the bee is deformed by default or a defect? The caption shown on the box is a straight-standing bee. If it's a defect which is found in these few batches, then I find that the price is too steep to pay for a defect. $59 for a deformed bee. Moreover, the jumperoo is a big ticket item and also the costliest there. Will make arrangements with HB this week, he'll be driving down for the third time. I'll request for an exchange, if the same defect is still found, I'll probably ask for a refund.

Yuuri,
Play gyms very slow moving there. I still see the same play gyms today as I saw the other time. Hardly see mummies there buying too.</font>

Cos that day I asked msapple and she said if bring then prob have to leave at the corridor. So think just let the mummies know abt it
sorry if I kapo. Heehee.

I think for the 4 panel playyard, the playmat wld be too big. Fr what i read, most who buy the playmat wld get the 6 panel type. But it seems Haenim doesn't have 6 panel, so the mummies wld find some other mummy to share a 4 panel to get 6

shint
$600!! Wow.. I think only twin stars is the closest match

hi,

havent been coming here for a long time.

Had a stressful period ....

anyway for Mattel sales, walker is either near Cashier or right end of tent.

I got a activity walker.
 
<font color="aa00aa">Mummies,
I did a comparison of the Hop n' Pop versus the Rainforest Jumperoo based on my experience and observation. Hope it is of help to mummies who are deciding on which to get.

Fisher Price Hop n’ Pop
- Costs S$80 (at Mattel Sale).
- Can accommodate baby’s weight up to 11.3kg.
- Requires 3 “C” batteries.
- Seat adjustable to 3 different heights.
- Attached floor pad.
- Seat is fixed, unable to rotate 360 degrees.
- The gadget for the exersaucer to pop is located in front. Baby has to exert a lot of effort and strength in order for the exersaucer to function.
- Volume control enabled.
- Seat padding machine washable.
- Portable from room to room.


Fisher Price Rainforest Jumperoo
- Costs S$180 (at Mattel sale).
- Can accommodate baby’s weight up to 11.3kg.
- Requires 3 “AA” batteries.
- Seat adjustable to 3 different heights.
- No floor pad.
- 360 degrees rotating seat.
- High sensitivity, baby bounces and jumps easily.
- Volume control enabled.
- Seat padding machine washable.
- Portable from room to room.

Both items are more of entertainment value, and not educational value.</font>

Slyvia: oic! thanks!


Smurfette: i tink could be the bee is defected cos the sept mommies thread the pic oso the show the bee defected..
 
<font color="aa00aa">Nini,
I bought my jumperoo at $180, so far haven't heard or encountered any price discrepancies regarding jumperoos. $59 is too high a price for a defect like that, IMO.</font>

m2b, no need to envy. i also didn't go coz i know my hb hates crowded places. plus i have to take my bb along when i go out. for me, transport cost outweigh savings from pch. what's more, may not be able 2 get the stuff i want.

M2B &amp; krex78,
Haha, same here for me. Wanna check out all the great deals too but DH rather pay the 'premium' than travel all the way and squeeze with crowd. He'd probably nag me to death before we reach.

Hi,
I have a 7kg baby at 3mths old. I am also interested in the Jumperoo, however it stated in the box that the maximum weight is 11.3kg.
I need to check with those mummies who bought the jumperoo, how heavy is your baby?
Any babies out there that are more than 11.3kg try the jumperoo before. Kindly advise. Thanks

shint / celyn,

If I'm not wrong, like what Shirley says, the Mattel sale is only til 9 Dec. So which means the sale won't be there on Thurs when u go.

Any mummy can verify?
 

huichin

New Member
Oh yes yes, talking abt cereal, anyone started giving ur bb cereal in powder form liao? Have tried once last nite giving Falisha. She seems fine with it. But duno how many times to give her a day though. Heard from duno who should start with once a day with her milk 1st, 1 teaspoon each time. Any advice/comments? Got a few sample packets from Nestle.

Re: Kindermusic trial
Reporting after the trial class, I feel the lessons are suited more when they are older. Cos I think most of the babies hv short attention span.

Overall is fun but mb more suited for older babies.

Hi Mummies,

Went to mattel sales, didnt buy anything. Some of the toys are not in very good condition and its very dusty there. Apologies for the late sharing as my boy is running a fever after his 2nd booster vaccine.

An advice: is to take the toy out from the box and check it, there is a hardware shop near the security post that sells battery, buy one and test it there - to save extra trips for returning of defect items.

Toys with boxes and toys with plastic wraps are priced differently though they are the same toys.

The previous sales, i bought the rainforest cot mobile, a few things was missing, when i checked it in the car - thats why i know there is a hardware shop there.

Hope my sharing helps.

Best to check as the distance is quite a hassle if you are not living near there
