Not too sure why they will bite their shirt collars.

They climbed 3 times. First two was similar but the last one was spectacular. A single column was left after they were done.

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.

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.
