I received an invitation to attend this special event with other mommy bloggers. I was excited, and this is the first ever time that I spend a night out without Princess! muahaha…
I set off work at 5pm sharp, and took a cab to Bangsar and arrived at 6.30pm.. still early, therefore I went to my ‘ex’-hang out place, aka Starbucks Bangsar Village 1 for a cuppa! It’s nice to sit around having my favourite coffee without tagging Princess.. Now I know why mummies need “ME” time too!
Next, I walked over to Marmalade, Bangsar Village II for the event. I was early, therefore I have a nice pleasure time taking photos around, and also having some time to chat with other mommies.
This special event was all about the upcoming new channel on ASTRO 613, Disney Junior, a new channel brand which replaces the Playhouse Disney brand and will be coming soon on 11 July 2011.
The newly branded, learning-focused Disney Junior reflects the emotional connection generations of consumers have to Disney storytelling and Disney characters, both classic and contemporary. Disney Junior's programming invites mom and dad to join their child in the Disney experience of magical, musical and heartfelt stories and characters, while incorporating specific learning and development themes designed for kids age 2-7. Disney Junior's animated and live action series blend Disney's unparalleled storytelling and characters kids love deeply with learning, including early math, language skills, healthy eating and lifestyles, and social skills.
