~ Circle Line Open House - Part 2 ~

We started our Circle Line Discovery at 12pm and took 1.5 hours to reach the 5th station - Buona Vista. We did not manage to stay on to catch the Circle Line Musical but there are prizes being given away during the Q&A session with Glenn Ong.

A quick glimpse at One North station

Moving on to one of my favourite stop - Kent Ridge Station.

This must be one of the longest flight of stairs that I've seen across the new stations so far. Hubby and the kiddos climbed up while I took the escalator instead. :p

There are a lot of activites here as well. Kampong games like four stones, tikam tikam, hop-scotch, gasing etc can be found here.

The children and I also spent some time at the Graciousness Photo Pledge booth. Each of us drew a picture and wrote our pledge on how to be gracious on public transport. We even get to take home the photos taken with our pledge card. 10 lucky participants with the best pledge will win $30 shopping vouchers. :)

*Gladys was a bit grouchy when her picture was submitted. She thought she can take her drawing home. Awwww.. :)

It's almost 3pm and we were moving a bit too slow through the stations. Gladys, missing her nap time is getting tired and we skipped a few stops.

Arriving at Telok Blangah station, we saw another YES 933 DJ, Jiahui. There were also some toys and games to keep the children entertained.

We finally reached our final destination : HabourFront. There was a long queue at the jewelry making booths and we decided to give it a miss. Instead, we went to join another queue for a free can of Coco-Cola to quench our thirst.

We took the train all the way back from HabourFront to Caldecott before driving back home. It was a 5 hours discovery trail for us. We were tired but had a good time exercising (climbing the stairs), having fun at the various game booths and experiencing the art pieces and surroundings at the new Circle line stations.

If you missed the Open House last Sunday, there will be a Circle Line Opening Carnival at Holland Village on 8 Oct 2011 (Saturday), from 6-9pm. Music and dance performances will add on to the celebration and party. Remember to pick up a discount voucher booklet  at any Circle Line MRT station that day and enjoy discounts at more than 70 merchants. :)
