Volkswagen Family Weekend | Volkswagen Jetta Comfort 1.4 TSI Review

This is a sponsored Review for Volkswagen Jetta Comfort 1.4 TSI.

Could you even spot Sophia?

The kids spent the whole afternoon with activities such as coloring and Mini Golf.

Mini chicken burger with baked potatoes were available to fill those tiny tummies.
But nothing beats having an ice cream station where kids can take their pick at flavors
and even add their very own toppings!!

I was just grateful that there were endless supply beverages on a scotching hot day.

With the kids well taken care of,
We even get to test drive the best selling car from Volkswagen; The Jetta Comfort.

Clean cut lines and timeless design. The Jetta exudes an air of sporty elegance. High level of quality from its build could be experienced with the soild thud of doors closing!

It’s roomy in the inside. Ample of knee room from the front to the back. Large boot space with the capacity of 510 litres. And if you ever need to transport even more, the rear backrest can be simply folded down for practical through-loading from the boot.

Other than featuring radio, MP3 and WMA playback on its single-disc CD player, it also adjusts its’ volume depending on your driving speed. Fitted with 8 speakers to bring your music listening experience to a whole new level!!

Little Extras to make the Deal Sweeter
-Climatronic air-conditioning system;
You can change temperature of the air conditioning at the touch of a button. The temperature is electronically controlled, and separate settings can be programmed for each side of the car. Air quality sensor monitors the quality of the outside air and automatically switches to air recirculation mode if necessary.
-Cruise control system;
This will come in particularly useful when driving Long Distance to Malaysia using the North-South highway!!

Engine: 1.4L TSI
7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox (DSG)
Fuel Consumption: 16.6km/l

In conclusion, we were impressed with the Volkswagen Jetta’s superior built in quality. The efficient use of fuel which is comparable the the Toyota Altis at 16km/l also means that it is gentle on the pockets. Makes a great family car. But first, I’ve got to get my driver’s license!! 😛

Fun Water Parks in Singapore: Pasir Ris Swimming Complex

Hiroshi has been attending swimming lessons by the school for the past couple of weeks. So I thought I’ll pop by and spy at his progress.

Lessons were held at Pasir Ris Swimming Complex.
The place wasn’t huge, but it suffice.

Other than the norm of a competition pool and a learner’s pool,
Pasir Ris Swimming Complex has 2 fun slides
and a toddler pool which was equipped with baby slides and water sprinklers.

And if that doesn’t sound good enough,
there is also a relaxing Jacuzzi tucked in a nice corner.

Although Kitson used to be a swim coach, we’ve never successfully taught Hiroshi swimming. There is a fear of water and drowning in him that he’s happy waddling in the toddler’s pool than to swim for real!!

So, perhaps peer pressure will teach him to swim.

I was on stealth mode. Lunching at Pasta Mania, I was able to watch Hiroshi’s progress in comfort. The glass panel safely provided me with a good view without blowing my cover.

My jaw dropped when I saw Hiroshi doing a double somersault then jumping into the pool! The coach’s attention was on another child. My mind when blank, stomach churned and I was sure I cursed out loud, “SHIT! He can’t SWIM!!”. But to my surprise, I saw his head blobbing out of the water heading for the sides of the pool. PHEW!!! What the hell was he thinking!!!

I decide to blow my cover and walk nearer to the daredevil to see what he has been up to!

I could feel a tear at the corner of my eyes!
I am uber proud of him!
Although he isn’t swimming laps in breast strokes or butterflies, but I am proud that he has picked up some basic water survival skills which might come in handy some day!

I am actually quite IMPRESSED to be honest.
He has overcome his fears and could even float calmly on his back!!

We also brought James along for his first swim ever!!!
