~ Circle Line Open House - Part 1 ~

When the first stretch of Circle Line stations (Marymount to Bartley) were opened in May 2009, it was so convenient to travel to Bishan from our home. As more stations began operations from Bartley to Dhoby Ghaut last April, we have additional options when travelling down to Suntec City.

Now, the final 12 stations of the Circle Line (CCL), running from Marymount to HarbourFront will open for passenger service officially on 8 October 2011. This will bring us nearer to parks & gardens (e.g.  Botanic Garden, Labrador Park, Southern Ridges, Telok Blangah Hill, Kent Ridge Park etc), business hubs (Biopolis, Fusionopolis) and more accessibility to shopping and food paradise.

2 October 2011 - We hopped on to a Circle Line Discovery trail during it's OPEN HOUSE last Sunday. From 10am - 6pm, visitors travel for free to the 12 newest train stations. There are special events held at 6 different stations filled with a variety of programs and performances.

We started our journey at Caldecott and explore the various architectural designs uniquely displayed at individual stations.

 Wow! So High!
 Denver & Gladys taking their first ride across the new stations. :)

Setting off from Caldecott, we reached Botanic Gardens Station where YES 933 DJ, Peifen is the station master.

We met our friend Johnny & his family and the children did oragami and drawings.

 Exiting from the station, we checked out the surroundings and got a pink helium balloon for Gladys. Travelling down to Botanic Gardens will be a breeze soon. 

 Gladys is so Happy with her Balloon that she can't stop posing with it.
 Our Daddy's girl always like to give funny faces.

Our next destination - Farrer Road. It's so fun going through the station gates freely without tapping our ezlink cards for payment. :p  You also won't miss the Big Yellow Balloon floating high up at every CCL station, promoting the open house event.

Denver and Gladys have been running up and down the stairs at every other stations. Mommy is exhausted and prefers to take the escalator.

It has been years since I visited Holland Village! The stretch of shop houses with cafes, restuarants and shops are still the distinctive feature that makes it a popular hang-out.

We moved from station to station and our next stop is Bouna Vista. To be continued....
