The kiddos got to meet the cast of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2"!

The director and cast of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2", Marc Webb, Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Jamie Foxx popped by Singapore for a red carpet event and press conference on 27 Mar 2014 at Marina Bay Sands.  They are also here for the Earth Hour to be held on 29 Mar 2014 at 8.30pm at The Float @ Marina Bay.

In all my 36 years I had never ever chased stars, whether celestial or humans, but yours truly managed to get some tickets for the red carpet and press conference this time round, courtesy of Marina Bay Sands.  I know that the kids would be really excited to catch the movie, but I was not too sure of what to expect from the event.  I trusted my instincts nevertheless and went ahead with the family and 2 other friends who graciously helped with keeping an eye on the kiddos.

It was really crowded at the red carpet event and we were only catching glimpses of the stars on the big screen from afar.  The kids had to literally climb on top of me to catch any actions!  The classic so close yet so far away situation. 

It was followed by the press conference and while waiting for the stars to arrive, I thought why not walk to the front to take a photo with Steffi and Leroy right on stage.  This was when the staff noticed the kiddos, found them a little cute, and offered them front row seats amongst the press!  And as the guardian of the kiddos, I got to move all the way to the front too which was really super lucky for us!

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone were really friendly, with no airs at all.  They talked to the kiddos, high-fived them, took photos with them and made their day.  Spidey even sat right next to Leroy, albeit just for a little while!  I guess all these more than made up for whatever waiting we went through.

When the press conference ended, Steffi couldn't bear to see Andrew go and went up on stage by herself.  She even asked him for a photo on her own and this is the parting shot we managed to get as from him!  Simply awesome wasn't it?
