One night at Singapore Night Festival

We attended the night festival once last year and we really love it. This year, we went again. We didn’t manage to go on the first week but we managed to soak in the fun and artistic atmosphere on the last day of the festival. It is also a great chance to bring the kids to learn more about Singapore’s heritage, arts and culture in a completely different light! Best of all, we won a Singapore Night Festival survival pack from a lucky draw organised by bras basah.bugis.

Right after our dinner, we squeezed our way to the National Museum. Yes, squeezed because it was really really crowded and the weather wasn’t really kind to us that night. It was pretty warm and stuffy but come to think of it, it didn’t rain. So the weather wasn’t really that bad after all. Everyone was heading to the same place awaiting to watch the show by Garden of Angels, a performance by Theater Tol from Belgium. Along the way there, we saw some nice decorations up in the trees.

While waiting for the show to start, the kids (of course, we adults as well) were enjoying the Anooki show. The cute little characters came alive and ran riot across the façade of the National Museum in a story specially created for the festival and Singapore’s Golden Jubilee. It was really adorable and with the music that went with it, it made it even more fascinating for the audiences especially the kids!

Finally, what we were waiting for has started! It is the first time that the kids got to watch live music theatre performance outdoor. We were all mesmerised by the beautiful and handsome performers.

Suddenly, everyone turned to the direction where the crane was located. It was the “flying angels” turn to perform!

To tell you the truth, watching someone hanging right above us is kinda scary and made me really worried. On the other hand, it might feel like having freedom “flying” in the sky. What’s more, the performers threw different types of objects down to everyone of us, making it kind of interactive. Don’t worry, no hard objects. There were just balloons, streamers, feathers, etc. Both adults and kids were all grabbing whatever flown down to the ground.

After the show, we headed to the SMU site for other activities. The kids get to legally and openly drew on a Volkswagen Beetle.

Next, we moved on to another corner where the kids get to play with florescent lights. We saw many different creations by the people who got the chance to play with it. They really spot the right place to have this activity as the location was truly dark, thus making the lights really pretty.

It was getting late and the kids looked pretty worn out. We headed home after playing with the lights. On the whole, it was an enriching night for all of us. The kids enjoyed themselves a lot! We can’t wait to attend the Singapore Night Fest for 2016.

I am a busy mummy of 2 wonderful kids. Their thirst for learning has made me busy researching and making learning resources/materials for them. Most of the time will be according to the topics that they have requested. Otherwise, I will randomly pick a topic and create the materials for them. Most of the time, the materials will include right brain training as well. From them, I get to learn a lot too! However, material preparation is quite a challenge! It will even be more challenging if you are a working parent! Here, I would love to share what we have done and hope busy parents out there will find our materials useful for their little one. If you have any queries/comments or if you have any topics that you would like to cover with your little one(s), do drop me a message and I will get back to you as soon as I can :) Our mission is to find, discover and reveal the fun of kids learning! Drop us a message if you are interested in any of our materials. Let's make learning fun!
