Extreme couponing

Extreme couponing

Mrs Loreena Lim has been buying extra copies of The New Paper, cutting out and collecting coupons.

This is so that her brood of nephews and nieces and her daughter Kimberly could have an afternoon of fun and family bonding at The New Paper Readers Carnival, presented by HUAWEI.

The 41-year-old sales representative said she collected 90 coupons from 25 copies of the paper for the six children.

Yesterday, she bought an additional $100 worth of coupons for the children to enjoy.

"Still not enough coupons! I have six children here," she said with a smile.

The kids had a ball trying out the Nerf Blaster Maze, Fetch The Duck and Darting at the game areas.

Even their grandmother, Mrs Susan Soh, got into the spirit of things and was trying out the Coin Toss and other games. "I am enjoying the carnival. It's fun!" said the 67-year-old.

Mrs Jocelyn Teo, 36, was spotted with her eight-month-old daughter, Jolie, strapped to her front, while her two older children, Jayna, six, and Julius, four, were bowling at Funbowl and fishing at Fetch The Duck.

"I've been collecting the coupons every day since the paper started printing them. We came here just for the kids to have fun," she said.

Kiss 92 DJ, Maddy Barber, dropped by during her break from broadcasting live to spend some quality time with her 10-year-old daughter, Alicia.

Alicia enjoyed the Rodeo Bull so much she rode it three times.

"There's the fun and games, and also the educational and self-improvement aspects in the main fair. It's a very all-encompassing, comprehensive fair for the whole family," said the DJ.

TNP Readers Carnival is a part of SmartKids Asia 2015, which is Asia's largest education fair.

The carnival boasts a total of 22 games catered for parents and children to enjoy.

Players can win points at the games and these points can be exchanged for attractive prizes.

Look out for specials where bonus points will be awarded at particular games to get you closer to the prizes.

These prizes include the GoPro Hero 4, Airwheel Q5, Airwheel Marsrover S3, PlayStation Vita, Fitbit Flex and much more.

Use the coupons on the right of this page and head down to Singapore Expo Hall 5.

Opening hours are 11am to 9pm.

The carnival ends today.
