Dream Big Princess Academy

When I informed the girl that we were going to Singtel TV & Disney's Dream Big Princess Academy, she was beyond thrilled. This was an awesome opportunity for both of us, ardent Disney fans.

Dream Big Princess Academy held at Fort Canning Hotel
Presented by Disney Junior and Disney Channel on Singtel TV
Tables where the princesses-in-training get a makeover

My girl was dressed in Cinderella of course. She had wanted to go as Ariel but it wasn't easy to find a mermaid outfit you know.


We were ushered to our table, which was decorated with lovely goodies!

Cookies, cakes, cupcakes and marshmallows =)
Princess cupcakes and crown-shaped sandwiches
The Cinderella cupcake and crown cookie were my favourite

My girl told me she had a stomachache on the way to the event but the minute she laid eyes on the table and its contents, her stomachache suddenly "disappeared" (-_-").

The event was hosted by Vivien Tan-Vaca (a familiar face), who was also the fairy godmother-in-training.

The first to make her appearance was Sophia the First, followed by the very beautiful Cinderella!

Cinderella has always been one of my favourite Disney Princesses (after Belle of course), so I was just as excited as everyone to take pictures with her. The event organisers were quite smart about managing the process I must say. They arranged for the people to take pictures with the Disney Princess table by table. Those who were waiting for their turn will work on an activity related to the princess at their table. And it was a super fun activity too =)

To show kindness, the princesses-in-training were to decorate a cookie to give to someone they love
My girl did this herself with almost no help from me
(this mummy was happily instagram-ing hehe)

Soon it was finally our turn to take pictures with Cinderella. My girl was a bit crossed that I wanted to be in the picture too (she wanted it to be just her and Cinderella). I told her that if I'm not in it she can't take the photo (after all, I was the one who brought her there!!) so she agreed somewhat reluctantly *laughs*.

See her awed face when she meant Cinderella! Probably couldn't believe that was happening =)
A staff helped us to take this photo. The lady playing Cinderella looks so much like the cartoon doesn't she? Confirm imported directly from Disneyland! *laughs*
The event organisers printed a photo for each family and also gave us a link to download the softcopies online

My girl loves the photos so much that I had to frame them when we got home so that she can bring it to school and show (more like show off) her teachers and school friends.

Next, it was time for Rapunzel to make her appearance!

If you're observant like I am, you'd notice that they had changed the background scene to match the princess. Trust Disney to pay so much attention to detail! =)

Photo-taking with Rapunzel

The princesses-in-training had to complete a lantern to demostrate creativity like Rapunzel.

Due to the short time that was given, I had to help her colour and paste the stickers

Her final product, done by both princess and mummy =)

Despite having just taken pictures with two very beautiful princesses, the greedy girl kept questioning me, "Mummy, what about Princess Sofia?!" when I asked her if she enjoyed meeting Cinderella and Rapunzel.

Well she got her wish. After getting her certificate of "Princess-ship", the #everydayprincesses got to take pictures with Sofia the First.

She was beaming with happiness =)

Gotta hand it to Disney to always make dreams come true! =)

As we left, the princesses were each given a goody bag and three cupcakes (one of each princess) to take home. My girl was thrilled!

With her certificate and souvenirs to bring home!
Disney Princess cupcakes!
The goody bag contained a super duper cute Cinderella soft toy, Sofia the First amulet and a Disney cup. Had to threaten my girl to share the Cinderella!!
(no, I don't believe in giving in to my girl's whim and desire at the expense of me. Plus she needs to learn to share right?! *laughs*)

It was definitely a lovely event worth taking leave for (if I take leave for something, it better be worthwhile)!=)

Thanks to Singtel TV, Disney Junior and Disney Channel

I'm so glad that the new Singtel TV packages have Disney channels. This way the hubby and I can sign up for Singtel Fibre and TV (we're already their mobile subscribers) and join their Singtel Circle where members get to enjoy perks such as free data every Sunday. The hubby and I have always been Singtel fans so it was a no brainer for us to subscribe with Singtel for our new house. Looking forward to more Singtel events! =)
