Mid-autumn @ Gardens by the Bay

As usual, its a yearly routine that I bring my family to see the lanterns at Gardens by the Bay during the Mid-Autumn festival. But before we saw the lanterns, we chanced upon some light show exhibit.

After the short distraction that trigger some unhappiness with my boy, we head for the lanterns :p

Unfortunately its too crowed (as expected) during the long weekend and we had to cut short our trip and head back.

Bus Carnival Rolls into Town @ Vivocity

I brought my family down today to take a look at the new buses.

I personally prefer the bus with both the staircase and exit at the rear, this will definitely encouraged passengers to go right to the back to free up room for people to board the bus.

DSC03080_uploadThere are really usb charging ports at every window seat.

There are many displays of old buses, including this that I’ve never taken before.

As well as this one which I do remember taking before when I was young. Its hot inside and when it rains, it’ll get more stuffy as well because all the windows have to be closed.

DSC03099_uploadThere are many miniature displays like these but unfortuantely, none are for sale. I son particularly liked the double decker bus from Toys”R”Us, but these were no longer in production.

While older folks like me can link up with the history, there are things for children as well.
