You may have heard of the 10-minute Mozzie Wipeout. I remember resenting the term “mozzie” being used so endearingly for what I know now to be the one animal species “responsible for killing more humans than any other animal on the planet”.
Some of you might remember the rather direct blog post I published two Fridays ago when I received a little NERF gun as a gift from Hasbro to tie in with their POWERPLAY 2013 event last weekend. Well, they replied.
Last week, I received an email from a Hasbro representative telling me to expect a delivery on the following Monday. I’ve dealt with Hasbro Singapore on a couple of occasions prior to this, and even though The Blogfather had to put up an Editorial Policy (as both a disclaimer for media engagements as well as … Continue reading Let’s Play a Game, Hasbro
Truth be told, just about everything I’ve been doing in my life since my son was born has been for my son’s benefit; this blog and Dear Xander included. And if an opportunity to put a smile on my son’s face presents itself, I take it.
There are 3 days in every year that the Blogfather will always dread the most: his wedding anniversary, his wife’s birthday, Mother’s Day, Christmas and Chinese New Year.

Dear Xander, Last Saturday, at a birthday party hosted by Mummymoo for her 2-year-old son, you managed to score a big bunch of helium balloons, 5 normal coloured balloons topped with a gold star-shaped balloon.

Pamela of My First Games recently offered me some CitiBlocs as gifts for my son. I’ve heard of CitiBlocs before, and being the modest, humble Blogfather I am, I politely handed back the 2 plain sets of CitiBlocs, then looked at Pam with much gratitude and said to her: “Can I have the coloured ones instead?”
