Darren Lim and Evelyn Tan - Living On A Boat

According to recent media reports about Darren Lim and Evelyn Tan,
they have a new baby that was born. They were married in 2004.


 Their 4th child, a son, Elliot Lim arrived at the
Thomson Medical Centre in Singapore on 4 November 2013.

 The couple have 3 other kids: Kristen, 8, Jairus, 5, and Way 3.

 In addition, it's being reported that the family has been
living on a boat at Sentosa Cove for the past year.

 Here are some photos and videos I've found on the web with regards to their boating lifestyle:

In the video interview:

1. Darren Lim expresses that his children love living on the boat.

2. They get to meet people from different countries and can sail away anytime for a trip.

3. Living at such close proximity to the water has given
them a better awareness of Mother Nature and
thus have instilled more environmentally friendly values in the kids.

4. He also jokes that though the space is smaller on a boat, he can reach for things easily.

5. They needed some time to adjust to the smaller space
 as the family had previously lived in a bungalow.

6. He also jests that he spends less time doing household chores now
and has more family time with his kids.

According to a report on The New Paper,
 they upgraded from a two-room Beneteau Oceanis 37 yacht
 to a three-room Lagoon 400S2 catamaran in September 2013.
