It was a refreshing carnival of free local food, games, stage performances and picnic on the grass! Something not quite suitable to do in humid Singapore but something oh-so enjoyable in Spring Shanghai!!
Alright, kick starting the entry with
The colourful stage with it’s mega LED screen on both sides. I really liked the usage of colours here, definitely brought about the familiar identity of Singapore as a multi-racial and multi-facet society.
All the booths rushing to get everything in place before the crowd floods in. The booths this year was sorted by colours!
Coniferous trees in the park creating a classy backdrop. I can feel the cold air just by looking at this picture.
The Ice kachang themed playground with an array of traditional games! Cheyenne randomly asked if I want to enter the Ice Kachang thing and I replied “Are we allowed in?” . She took a double take at me =_= |||
Giant Graham Crackers tin with MONEY inside You bet we were intrigued!
For those of you who don’t get it, this display is a take on how long ago before banks were secured, people would store their money in random tin cans such as these.
Of course we couldn’t resist a Photo opportunity!
The closest I’ll ever get to hitting someone with MONEY! Fear my $50 bill!
And we’re not the only ones intrigued, look who's taking pictures
Took the chance to ask for a photo opportunity and Mr Moses Lim kindly obliged! So nice ! He even entertained my cheesy request of shaking hands ala Prize Giving ceremony style xD
HDB styled sign post! with gigantic T-shirts that measured 4 storey high !
The MINDEF booth with it’s array of Physical Simulations for the public to try their hands or feet at. Photos at the bottom are the mobile kitchen.
The kind officer at the station teaching us about how the Standing Board Jump equipment measures our score automatically.
Here’s me agonizing over my Standing Board Jump score
I went on to score full points for the rest of the test and was awarded GOLD!!!!!! hurhurhur =X
People streaming into the event!
The Sports simulation booth had a cycling simulation which Cheyenne and I both tried. Everyone’s cycling speed was recorded and the one with the fastest score at the end of the day wins the bike. I don’t own any bikes at the moment.
The coolest simulation imho, was the F1 race simulation. Not only was it in 3D, it was also a real life representation of the F1 race tracks in Singapore complete with the Esplanade and Old Supreme Court in the Backdrop.
And of course, there’s the MICA booth!
Post cards to take away for all. Nothing better than a practical gift!
The MICA Staffs really hard at work!
Local designer reinvented items on display. Please ignore the random humans in frame, the booth was so packed it was hard to capture anything without a random Mr or Mrs popping in.
I thought the colourful windows idea was pure ingenuity xD
This area was the goodie bag giveaway area and one would think the snaking queue was never going to end!
The really cute T-shirt inside the goodie bag.
The goodie bag given away by MICA. I mad looooove the artistic direction of the entire thing! Everything from the bag to the T-shirt, to the little notebooks were done so tastefully yet meaningfully!
SO CUTE RIGHT ?!
Because the Singapore Day was so full of awesomeness, one entry is not enough to justify it. Hence I will be ending part 1 of my Singapore Day entry here. Look forward to more photo spammage, videos and insights about the event!
Ps: I don't want to sound like a bootlicker but the event was really pretty cool.Part 2 to come soon =)
and I'll be uploading video of my AWESOME hotel room xD
