I brought my family to explore the Far East Organization Children’s Garden. It is still quite a short walk from the visitor centre, as one can’t literally bash through the ‘trees’.
The first thing that greeted us when we got there is the water playground, the Water Play. It is too windy and chilling and hence to the disappointment of my young children, they don’t get to play with the water. At least not today.
Anyway, their disappointment is short-lived, the dry playgrounds are fun as well, especially the Rainforest Tree Houses.
We’ll definitely be back for more. When the weather turn warmer, the children can get wet as well 🙂
I seldom have the chance to brave the crowd at night with my young children, and hence not much photoshooting opportunities during the festive season. Instead of night photography, I decided to try a day trip this time. I brought 2 cameras with me, an Olympus DSLR with fisheye lens and a Sony NEX with a portrait lens.
Some fun with fisheye.
When it comes to street photography, I still prefer the more discreet mirrorless cameras.
The low profile is also good for taking pictures of things that I am interesting in taking pictures but not buying.
And what is Chinese new year without the goodies.
Last but not least, wish all Chinese a very happy lunar new year ahead! 马年行好运，新年快乐！
I made a trip to the Ice Art at near Marina Bay Sands. In terms of things to see, or duration you can stay, this ice show is not worth the price on the ticket.
But if you can’t stay long not because of the lack of exhibits but the harsh cold like me, then don’t bother to try the real thing in Harbin (colder & with wind as well). There’s no exit if you want to back out. For more infomation about the Ice Art Event, see http://www.sistic.com.sg/events/ice2014
Do note that the place is cooled down to minus 15 degrees Celcius. I only brought along my rugged compact, Sony Cybershot TX20. I’d rather compromise on image quality than risk damaging my better equipment.
I also did a video on the place. This is a handheld video, so bear with the wobble.
