Amazing F1 on the Boat (Pershing 73)

Date:  Sep 22, 2012

Jay Jay asked Daddy: "Why you don't want to bring me to F1?"

Daddy:  "Errrr…." (Hotel very expensive.  No one give me F1 tickets.  The Fullerton roof top party not suitable for kids.  Weather is hot, those cheap seats one need to stand.  Very noisy.) ~ all kinds of excuses came across to my mind.

Luckily a friend of mine asked me if I am interested to go to …. Without any thoughts, I say YES!  

So, today we are going to see F1 on a boat!  Or rather, watch F1 on a big screen and listen to live F1 noise, from a boat.

Meet Pershing 73.


It is a two deck boat.  Owner renovated it, and it looks nice.  If want to sleep also can.


This is a view from Marina Barrage… I always think that standing from this side looking at the Singapore Flyer is the most beautiful…  OK.  Now, here are the rules….

1.  Cannot use the toilet on the boat.

2.  Cannot throw anything into the reservoir.

While waiting for the owner to arrive, the kids play at the Barrage there...

Mommy big smile on the face.  Very happy.

Listen to F1 Noise.  Now, all the Ferrari, Porsche, etc sports cars are racing not he track now.  It is not F1, but you can see the car zoom zoom zoom.

 MBS Laser Show Viewed from the Boat.  Nice to see it from the back.  But we also never go sit there at the front.


 Real F1 Qualifying Race.  Finally, the F1 cars are on the track at 9PM.  Who will win?


 Kids Enjoying F1 on the Boat.  We can hear very loud noise from the F1 engines.  We can see shadows, lights, or the tail moving on the track.  We can see the cars from multiple big screen TV.  So, not too bad la.


 View F1 from another side from the boat.  So, we sailed to the right side, and park facing the Singapore Flyer.  The big screen TV is much more nearer here.  And we can see the F1 cars are racing.


Nice MBS view.

The kids are lying on me, or sitting beside me to watch the big screen...

Got to love iPhone 5 low light shooting lens… very nice…

We love this boat trip.  Especially on the night of F1 week.  The kids finally heard how loud is the F1 engines.  The kids enjoy yet another great adventure that daddy & mommy has planned for them.
