Last Sunday evening, I brought my foreign guests for a visit to Marina Barrage and we were greeted by a sky dotted with dancing kites of all shapes and colours!
Organized by NTUC Income, this event creates opportunities for everyone to be imaginative and to experience the thrills of kite flying.
The spacious roof top of Marina Barrage was packed with couples, families and friends on a fun weekend outing. Many came with picnic baskets and mats.
The clear blue sky seems to beckon people of all ages who could be seen flying kites of all shapes and sizes. They were thrilled when their kites soar higher than the others. The kids were extremely excited to see their kites finally up in the air.
What simple joy! Kite-flying is almost a vanishing hobby.
Admiring the majestic Marina Bay Sands Hotel as we watched the kite-flying.
The event was an enormous success with some 10,000 people turning up each day!
It's a bird .... it's a plane ..... it's bat man!?
We had a blast at the fountains, behaving like little kids, getting ourselves soaking wet. What a day!
As the setting sun slowly disappeared beyond the horizon, we looked forward to a sumptuous dinner while many people stayed back to enjoy the night breeze and night scene as Marina Bay comes to live when darkness falls.......
