Baby Fair's & Expos Advices for Daddeehhs
If you haven't already been to one this would enlighten and bring you insights of what you should prepare for.
1. YOU SHOULD ALREADY KNOW YOU ARE GOING TO ONE
One of the famous baby expo out there is the one with the afro baby or TCE baby expo. So as long as you heard of this one, then you are in the safe zone.
2. KNOW WHERE IS THE EVENT
I went to their expo 3 - 4 times and my very first mistake was I parked at Gardens. Carrying all the stuffs back and forth from Mid Valley to Gardens parking is no joke. I made 3 rounds and I was already exhausted.
Parking at Mid Valley is a bitch during these expos. Hence I ended up parking at Gardens Zone U. Mummys will go ballistic over this event because the diapers is selling at RM1 cheaper. So ya bear with it.
If you think 10am is early, you are wrong. Some parents go at the wee hours (3am - 6am) to line up for some crazy shits. One that I know of is the food hydrator that costs thousands and for the first few its only RM250. If I were you, persuade your wife to get one from Lazada at RM125. Cheaper and save you Sleeps!
3. CLEAR YOUR CARD OWINGS
You'll be reminded of this picture and me when you are there because you'll be doing this like a never ending dejavu.
The first time wasn't that bad for me (because it was still early), as the expo gets nearer to your babys birth day you'll know what I mean.
Its very personal but the first few round I spent thousands buying necessary items such as baby cot, baby diaper cupboards, wardrobes, mummy's breasts pump (if you can don't get manual because if they ask you to help pump, you'll die), diapers, tub matte (if you are chinese, you'll definitely have a red tub but it needs a matte or else your baby is gonna go ice skating in there), pillows for the cot, smelly pillow (yes we have one, baby needs one too).
Any many more things you'll end up buying.
4. WEAR A FUCKING COMFORTABLE SHOE
Never in my life I hung out at a mall from 10AM to 10PM (doesn't count when I used to work for Studio R selling shoes).
So wearing a comfortable walking shoe that doesn't kill your heels is a must. In my case I love my PUMA Blaze Of Glory X Careaux. In fact you'll see me wearing it a lot if im in the mall these days.
So there you go, be prepared.
