This is the first time Castells (human tower) is performed in Singapore. The performers were from Minyons de Terrassa and they hold the world record for the largest “Castell”.
Getting ready… and here they go.
Not too sure why they will bite their shirt collars.
The men will anchor, then the ladies then the toddlers start to climb.
They climbed 3 times. First two was similar but the last one was spectacular. A single column was left after they were done.
Can see how shag the anchor man is.
A huge turnout by at the financial district to cheer them on.
After two disappointing postponements, the Red Arrows finally flew over Singapore’s Marina Bay arrow.
The weather was very hot and by 1.15pm, I’m not quite sure whether there would be a third postponement or cancellation of the performance.
Fortunately, within a few minutes, we finally saw the red planes.
On the way back to the Gardens by the Bay, I chance upon some birding opportunity in the lotus pond.
The last time I went to Lower Peirce Reservoir was in 2014 and it was too cloudy then. I decided to make another trip today when a good weather coincide with a free day for me.
Similar scenes to those taken two years ago but I prefer the sky now.
I didn’t have time to explore the trails last time, so I make up for it today.
I didn’t have much luck spotting wildlife or insects and have to make do with these.
I would have missed a group of wild boar if not for a father-daughter pair and fortunately grab a shot before they ran away into the bushes.
This is another annual event that I rarely missed as it always brings much fun for my kids.
This year’s performance by the SPARROWS at the outdoor theatre has a refreshing twist… kids are encouraged to dance along.
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.
A quick walk-around at the Funan Anime Matsuri 2016, the last such event held at Funan before it close for redevelopment.

And after sending her back to office, I found some time to take advantage of the blue skies.
