It was a perfect Saturday. The sun was in the cloudless blue sky. It was certainly warm but I prefer the sun to the rain.
I am currently going through some rough times in my personal life and I am lucky to be surrounded by people who care. I am grateful for the attention they give to the needy me.
So E picks me to go on a short sailing trip with her. It turns out that this sailing trip is a 30-minute joy sail around the mouth of the Singapore River, sponsored by DBS. Interested parties have to register their interest online, and some lucky people will be picked by the staff/computer/machine/mathematical genius/I don’t know what-who-how each month. Each lucky person gets 4 tickets. I imagine that this would be a great and affordable (free!!) family activity to do.
When I got to the tiny pier, I was struck by the sheer number of kites in the air – I did not know about the annual kite festival, I swear. I don’t go to that area very often because it is less inaccessible compared to rest of Singapore’s downtown area, and I don’t work in the central area of Singapore.
Squint and you may just be able to see the numerous number of small kites in the air. Kinda like Zerg airborne creatures.
Little trips like this make me appreciate my country more. Singapore is a very beautiful country (if you look at the right spots).
After snapping about 4926 pictures of the Bay area, I explored the Kite Festival. However, I cannot fly a kite to save my life (though I do love looking at kites) so I sat down to gaze at the kites already in the sky. And snapped more pictures.
Oh, what the hell. Here are a couple more. No filter! Saturday’s pictures have a lot of blue in them. Blue sky, blue sky scrapers… You get the drift.
Act3 was at the kite festival too.
Broke and in Singapore? It seems that it is still possible to have a fun day out without spending any money at all!
