Jurong Lake Park + ABC Waters

We saw this flyers about Lantern Celebration in Jurong Lake Park, combined with the opening of ABC Waters (a new water fountain) and the new bridge. And the tickets was only $2, so we decided to just buy it and come to the event. (Even though we think: aiyo.. the name given is ABC waters? Come on... Can't you find a more innovative name..) But anyway, just to have something on the weekends lah...

We reached there around 5:30 pm (the event is from 5pm - 10pm), and you know what? Apparently we don't even need to buy tickets in the first place. For the tickets, we can only get free goodie bag, can join in some games, and can also join the lucky draw. The place was quite crowded and the air was humid (as always). And surprisingly, Vio refused to go down from the stroller, and once we managed to get him down, he refused to walk! He only want to be carried... Maybe there were just too many people that he feels uncomfortable..

Oh yeah, since Vio's fav words now is "So Big!" (for example: "Bus.. so big!!", "Ball.. so big!"), when he saw this baloon, he also said.. "Baloon.. so big!!"

Initially we wanted to join in the games, but there were so many people (and we must queue to join the game), so we decided not to join it. Vio was already restless, he doesn't like it there. And neither was I. Somehow the weather was too humid and there were too many people that I felt very tired. And we didn't know whether we did win the lucky draw, because it was only announced at 9pm that night. And for us, by 6:30pm, we head back home already.

The only item worth mentioning in the goodie bag was the lantern. It's shaped like a ball, so Vio kinda like it (to kick around, I mean). And somehow, at first he refers "lanterns" as "emons". Don't know where he get the words from. I originally thought he's referring to "Doraemon" hahaha..

Anyway, here's the lantern given out in the goodie bag..
