5 Feb 2008: Today's Parents "Parenting ROCKS"

Today's Parents writes about Alvin, Jin and Robyn

In the Feb 08 issue of Today's Parents magazine...

"Our father of the month is Alvin Yong. Profiled in Parenting Rocks, this dynamic father makes a positive impact on all he meets. Armed with a strong desire to make a difference, he aims to inject his daughter with a sense of adventure and generosity. His advice to parents: Know yourself first as that is the foundation of being a better parent."

Parenting ROCKS is on page 68-69


"Becoming a good parent starts with self-knowledge, affirms Alvin Yong. The new-generation father shares his out of the box parenting style with Laura Ho."

It was on 7 Jan when Alvin met with writer Laura Ho and editor Sunuja Naidu of Today's Parents at the Avita Lounge to talk about new age parenting. We are pleased to be able to contribute an idea or two to share with the readers of the magazine, and sincerely hope that our stories will inspire more interesting parenting adventures to shape an enlightened generation of children.

9 Feb 2008: An Evening Stroll @ Botanic Gardens

The Singapore Botanic Gardens is one of the most wonderful places in Singapore. I'd visited this garden on countless ocassions and there seems no end to the number of amazing discoveries that await us. Robyn also learnt on this trip that this was where Alvin and Jin took their wedding pictures on 1 Jan 1994. Cool!
