Hong Lim Park - Lanterns made from recycled materials

There was a mini exhibition at Hong Lim Park of lanterns made from recycled Materials.

This lantern that looked like a ferris wheel won the first prize.

Kids having fun carrying lanterns.

Very creative to use paper plates, plastic spoons, fork, etc to make the lanterns that looked like a phoenix.

Hahaha a durian lantern, the durian looked real.

Lion made from hundreds of straws.

Entrance of the park was decorated with beautiful lanterns based on the Journey of the West Story.

Surprised to see this park decorated so beautifully.

Skywatch Friday - Mid Autumn Festival 2012 Celebration at Hong Lim Park

After all the fun at Singapore River, we decided to walk to Chinatown for our supper but halfway through our walk, we saw a beautiful dragon infront of Hong Lim Park.

On entering the park, we saw a mini exhibition of lanterns and some made from recycled materials.

I noticed this dragon head was cleverly made with lots of plates, bowls, tea cups, etc., very creative.

A short video on the performance at Hong Lim Park. I could not get closer to the stage, was literally standing behind some bushes hahaha, had to raise my camera to video this performance.

Mid Autumn Festival 2012 - Lots of activities

Besides viewing the lanterns and floats along Singapore River, there were lots to do, like finding the yummy food at the carnival.

Trying your luck at the games stores to win some prizes.

Buskers from overseas performing.

For thrill seekers can try the reverse bungee jumping. Bungee jump in the reverse direction and soar into the sky.

Finally end the night with a river cruise on the bumboat.

My World Tuesday - Mid Autumn Festival 2012 Celebration at Singapore River

Was at the Singapore River on Sunday, celebrating the mid autumn festival, saw the huge round moon above us. What a pretty sight.

There was a huge crowd that night, everyone trying to get some happy festival mood as we strolled along Singapore River. Love all the brightly lighted up lanterns in the form of the twelve chinese zodiacs.
