6:15AM in the morning. I drove my car and park it at the Marina Barrage - Car Park B.
Today is the Big Walk 2012 organised by the new paper. There should be more than 18,000 people joining the walk from The Central to Marina Barrage.
So, I figure if I park my car there first, then, later, after the walk, we don't have to wait for bus or taxi to come back to town. :)
Last year, the Big Walk is at Sentosa, going thru Universal Studio. My wife was on business trip to US, and I brought both the kids to the Big Walk 2011. It was a very tiring day, but it was fun! So, we decided to do it again. Here are last year photos.
Jay Jay geared up his number.
Again, Kay Kay refused to put the number on his shirt. So, we tag it on his bag.
This is where we start. Just outside the Central.
Last year, we also see him. 财神爷! Huat ah!
The kids enjoys themselves with the pink balloons.
At least 18,000 people.
Behind us, more people queue up at the starting line.
The new paper - new faces… All the chio bu…. (pretty meh?)
Here we marched pass the starting line.
Some scary green guy.
Here we marched into the tunnel.
Jay Jay went for a short pee. And after the pee, we saw the Nando Chicken mascot.
What is this big huge bird doing here?
After 1KM, we saw the Ice Cream uncle.
Uncle, 2x chocolate, 1x Durian with roti and 1x Corn with roti, please.
All enjoying the Ice Cream breakfast.
Kay: "Mommy, what you eating, so smelly!"
Mommy: "Durian Ice Cream."
Look Mommy, Marina Bay Sands is behind us.
Look Mommy! What a funny chair.
Ko Ko, I give you head massage?
Kay Kay wants to try!
Kay Kay put on his hat!
What is this? Cat Walk huh?
The reflections on the LV glass is amazing.
It's feeding fish time.
Fish, I give you my chocolate bread!
The boys enjoys the big ponds...
Kay Kay, don't disturb Ko Ko taking photo.
Yes? May I help you?
I am going to take the Flyer up!
Very nice scene here. White sands and the Flyer behind.
Finally, we reach the cool zone.
Jay Jay, I am very proud of you. 5KM of walk.
Jay Jay says "PaPa look, I cannot see my tummy. I thin already."
OK. Below photos are all from my wife's iPhone 4S. We now switch to her perspective view.
Come kids, this is the bridge. With the Sogo hotel behind.
We are on the bridge.
Kay Kay: "抱抱!"
Look at my antenna.
I have to carry Kay Kay most of the time.
My shirts were wet. So, Kay Kay raised his feet on my shoulder.
Olympic Dad and Son.
I want to feed the fish.
OK. Back to my camera.
We are going to test drive this car. Electrical Car. $88K. No COE. No Road Tax needed.
And Zero Emission.
Per charge can ride 160KM.
The whole car made of Eco Materials.
Hmmm… very funny looking stick.
Mommy, I am tired.
The drive is smooth. And he refused to drive us to Car Park B. HaHaHaHaHa
He gave us a Nissan Umbrella.
12 Noon. We are at Tae Kwon Do Class. I am proud of Jay Jay, as he just walked 5KM, and do TaeKwondo after the walk. And Now, as I am blogging this… he is taking the swimming lesson.
