~ Singapore River Cruise - NFC 2011 ~

We are deeply honoured and thankful to win tickets for the Singapore River Cruise ride in this year's NFC 2011 event.

"Mini episode"
A few nights before, Denver started to show symptoms of "Red Eye" again! Even Hubby seems to get 'infected'! With the previous experience we learned on Conjunctivitis, cleaning and preventive measures were taken immediately. The 'boys' went to see the family doctor and I spent the entire night sanitizing the house. Thank goodness for their speedy recovery and we managed to attend the carnival afterall.
It was a sunny morning and Denver & Gladys were very happy and excited. We decided to take the public transport instead of driving.

The Family Day Out Carnival was held at the Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade on 25th June 2011 and there was already a crowd when we arrived.

Mommy didn't know that in order to collect the goodie bag, I will need the newspaper cutting. Nevertheless, I managed to get a special goodie bag through Facebook registration. ^_^.

The main highlight for today's event is taking our very first ride on the Singapore River Cruise


The weather is very hot but our spirit is pretty high.

Getting onboard

As we cruised past the Floating platform, we managed to catch a glimpse of the National Day Parade rehearsal in preparation for Singapore's 46th Birthday. "Wave & Smile!"

The cruise passes through many of Singapore's major landmarks beginning with the Marina Bay Sands. As we looked up, we surely hope to find a chance to visit the Sands Sky Park someday.


Taking a break from the scorching sun and enjoying the breeze, marvelling at the significant architectures and skyline of Singapore from the river is an enjoyment. One can just imagine how much Singapore has developed and progressed from a simple fishing village to it's current standing.


The Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay

We are getting closer to The Merlion - Gladys' favourite spot which got her excited everytime. The Merlion symbolizing the re-discovery of Singapura never fails to attract and bring tourists as well as locals to come here for photo-takings.


The Customs House - once the home of the Singapore Customs Police but now has undergone major transformation into a unique F&B and nightzone zone.

View of the Singapore Skyline

Many of the buildings, bridges and sight is very familiar to all of us but viewing it from the river cruise is a different angle and feeling altogether.
