6 Jul 2008: Night Safari Walkabout

Jin, Robyn, Ranxuan and Alvin at the Night Safari

We went on a nocturnal adventure at the Night Safari and invited Ranxuan to join us.

It's been a while since we last came to say hello to these beloved animals and we were pleased that they are all in good shapes and spirit.

We walked the entire park and saw leopards, giraffes, different kinds of deers, fishing cats, and upside-down hanging bats.

19 Jul 2008: Cultural Night at De La Salle School

DLS students and their families were invited to school to appreciate and enjoy the different cultures that we have in Singapore.

Parent volunteers ran traditional games like 5 stones, chatek and carrom, arts like sari-tying, ketupat weaving, Chinese painting and Chinese knot-tying, and even Filipino Tinikling (bamboo dance).

Parent Volunteers Alvin and Jin gave self-healing tips to parents based on Meridian 101 Acupressure as part of the Chinese cultural tradition.

25 Jul 2008: Night Fesitval at the Singapore Museum

It was a fantastic display of lights as a form of art at the Night Festival. The Singapore Museum buildings were brightly dressed up with light projection.

There was free admission to the museum so we toured the entire place and learnt about the past history, fashion and items used many decades ago in Singapore.

Daddy Alvin experimented with artistic photography like these ones...

Robyn is becoming skilled at operating the Fuji Finepix S9500 digital camera, and took many shots of the light art from different perspectives.
