Spending Valentine’s Day morning at Coney Island

If you follow my Instagram, you would know that I woke up pretty early on Valentine’s Day morning to visit Coney Island. I was there for a guided tour organised by Outward Bound Singapore (OBS) and NParks volunteers.

This half-day outdoor classroom session was designed for environmentally conscious groups and individuals who feel strongly about keeping Singapore environmentally sustainable, following the success of OBS’ largest inaugural public outdoor conservation class (Project IsLand-A-Hand) in November 2015.

The guided tour was followed by a focus group discussion session facilitated by OBS Instructors. More than 30 young outdoor enthusiasts engage in a lively discussion about practical ways to preserve the natural environment for future generations, in a SGfuture engagement session organised by Outward Bound Singapore.

Chingay 2016

Chingay 2016 will be happening on 19 and 20 February at the F1 Pit building. More than 8,000 colourful multi-cultural performers will take part in this year’s Chingay. The theme for this year’s Chingay is “Lights of Legacy, Brighter Singapore”. As the theme suggest, this will be the brightest ever Chingay with the biggest full scale illuminated show.

Besides local performers, there are also more than 800 foreign performers from China, Indonesia, Korea, Russia, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan and Japan.

I managed to catch the Chingay 2015 few weeks ago during their rehearsal / NE Show. Here are some of the highlights you can expect from this year’s Chingay.

The Nanoblock will be available tomorrow (17 Feb), 12pm at Bugis Junction Atrium (outside Bossini). Available free when you purchase a McDonalds treat. Only 100 sets are available so expect madness.

But don’t worry. According to McDonald’s Singapore Facebook page, the Nanoblock will be available island wide in all McDonald’s restaurant from next week.

Singapore in Independence Day: Resurgence Super Bowl Trailer

Check out the latest Independence Day: Resurgence Super Bowl Trailer. If you see carefully, you might be able to spot some Singapore landmarks.

Well, it’s nice to know that Singapore wasn’t destroyed during the 1996 Independence Day’s alien Invasion. But looks like this time the aliens has found the little red dot.

OK, it’s just a movie. And most likely Singapore will only show up in the movie for a few seconds to represent worldwide destruction by the alien invaders.

But it good to know that Singapore is finally cool enough to be destroyed by Hollywood’s aliens. In the past, the Hollywood’s aliens and natural disasters usually just destroy cool landmarks such as London Eye, Sydney Opera House, Eiffel Tower, Christ the Redeemer, Great Wall of China etc. It’s nice to know that Singapore has entered the list of landmarks to be destroyed to represent “worldwide destruction”.
