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.

Another trip to the Lower Peirce Reservoir

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.

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.
