I braved one bout of puking, and a morning of nausea to head to the Mother & Baby Fair at the Singapore Expo.
When I first heard about this fair, I was hesitant to go, because the Natas Fair, reknown for the huge crowds it attracts, is also on now at the same place. But when a friend who is almost full-term into her pregnancy expressed interest in going, I decided it would be fun for us all to go together.
We arrived at 11am - the official opening time. The carpark was already almost full, and we had to join a queue to enter the fair! Still, I believe the bulk of the crowd had not yet arrived, and we were comfortable enough to do a walk around.
I didn't buy anything although I brought along a very helpful shopping list that lilsnooze sent me (thanks dear!). I asked Roboman to help record prices of things that we saw, and was just generally intrigued by the many baby and mummy things that I have never ever paid any attention too before. It helped to see what some of the contraptions actually looked like!
My friend bought a couple of packs of Huggies newborn diapers and received 2 free Mothercare onesies. She also got a MacLaren stroller at a really good discounted price.
Me? I walked away with a free goodie bag, a record of prices, and 1 little cup of Milo from the Nestle counter :)
(Why does Milo always taste better from these portable dispensers? Remember school sports days when we got iced cold Milo from the Milo van? Yum!)
