Shortlisted in 'We Welcome Families' Photo Contest and published in TODAY papers dated 12 September 2011
Yippee!! I received a phone call recently while i was away from the organiser for the 'We Welcome Families' Photo Contest, informing me that my submitted photo was shortlisted and won a S$150 cash prize in the F&B category of this photo contest!!
There are 4 categories in this contest - F&B, Leisure & Lifestyle, Services and Shopping Mall. The judges for this contest will pick a weekly lucky winner for each category from 3rd to 29th September 2011 and i was so lucky that my photo topped the F&B category for the week one of this contest. :-)
The winning pictures for week one of this contest was published in TODAY newspapers dated 12 September 2011.
The theme of this photo contest is to submit a photo of your family (at least 2 generations), taken in a family-friendly business outlet. You must creatively capture a family-feature and the business logo of the outlet.
My published photo is a shot of my whole family including my cute little nephew and niece taken at Lao Beijing chinese restaurant located at Novena Square. We enjoyed the family meal very much at the restaurant that day. :-)
When it comes to family bonding, nothing beats having a good meal together. The family that eats together, stays together. Eating and exercising right is more enjoyable when you are with family, friends, and people who care about each other.
So, what are you waiting for? Start nourishing your family bonds at the dinner table!!

Some people are cat people, some are dog people. But regardless of which camp they fall into, most people are simply crazy about their pets. The connections people form with their cats and dogs are often the longest, strongest relationships in their lives. What makes these animals such key members in some people's lives?
They can be our soul mates or best friends. What makes these animals such key members of our families? Perhaps it’s because our furry friends have long provided us with comfort, camaraderie, and unconditional love. Cats and dogs are our unending source of kisses, cuddles, slobber, claws, and laughs.
A MEOW to all cats and dog lovers!! :-)
