This is the last night for Singapore Night Festival 2016. In case you are looking for some Fun and happening activities for the family tonight, we have listed our favourite activities below (from last week).
Let us hope the Haze will fade away this evening.
Video (link) : Night animations and buzz around Singapore Night Festival 2016
National Museum, I would prefer the light show at SAM (Singapore Art Museum)
SAM lightings are more attractive, we see forest, aquariums etc 🙂
But the most happening buzz should be along Armenian street, which is closed to traffic on Friday and Sat during SG Night Festival.
Drums and percussion (Street Beats) literally jazz up the street, so much energy and showmanship. If you miss their performance, just walk ahead and wait for the members to catch up 🙂
NDP 2016 at National Stadium.
No Red Lions, Flypast, or Big bang fireworks.
However, the best part of the show is watching the kids enjoy themselves.
Singing, Cheering, Reciting the Pledge, Mari Kita (National Anthem Majulah Singapura).
When did they memorised the lyrics (link) for Tomorrow’s Here Today? (I even have problem remembering the tongue-twisting song Title)
Nevermind, kids are showing us Singapore’s future is bright 🙂
Seeing Alethea and Boon Xin enjoying themselves, can I nominate them for the BEST motivators award?
Band 53a crooning NDP 2016’s theme song.
Huge LCD screens all around ensure we never miss any action. Motivators are decked in white to rah-rah the audience and raise the tempo.
We enjoyed all the segments and goosebumps. Nothing like singing favourite Singapore songs together 🙂
Two items are memorable, hand-signing of “Count on Me Singapore!” and Kallang Waves (endless haha).

To be truly successful, Singapore must embrace everyone in the society.
When the Chinook flypast with Singapore flag (look at big LCD ok), sing Majullah Singapura with Gusto!
I want the kids to be proud to be Singaporeans, hope they will not take our Nation’s peace for granted (especially in these uncertain times).
Some folks will get to Pull the Singapore flags up the seats!
Stand-in President reviewing Guard of Honour.
Feu-de-joie (Indoor), super LOUD as the blanks echo around the stadium 🙂
Sky turning dark, but the atmosphere and mood indoor is electrifying.
Police and soldiers file onto the steps, symbolising everyone need to play a part to keep Singapore safe.
Shine wrist band, SHINE! Thousands of little lights will be synchronised off our wrists 🙂
Twinkle Twinkle little stars lit up the National Stadium, so NicE!
Folk hero “Legend of Badang”, and a Singapore Stone 🙂
Story telling, Ah Gong sharing Singapore’s growing years.
2065 Singapore, is that our home in the sky?
Look at the “rolling” multimedia screen below the stage, as children paintings (and aspirations) are projected, the performers form the shape too. Impressive act!
Fireworks seem a distance away (over at Kallang Basin).
Rousing audience, indoor fireworks too! Indoor fireworks feel closer and definitely more impactful! Let us sing patriotic songs together again 🙂
NDP show and performance is always better when we participate with buddies, Cheekiemonkies 🙂
This was our NDP 51 preview (NDP 2016 at National Stadium), and we are sure more families will enjoy the upcoming previews too! Gather more details and highlights about NDP 2016 on their website and NDPeeps Fanpage.
Boon Yee checking out the “The Future of US” Singapore exhibition through a tabloid.
He will be 23 years old in 2030.
At the entrance, we came across poster headlines from earlier decades. All are part of Singapore’s history.
At Theatre of Generations, we witness how Singapore had transform from 1965 to 2015, and onwards to 2030. The projections are beamed on to the Roof for an immersive experience.
It feels like an Omni-theatre experience, broadcasted in English with 4 languages subtitles.
Symphony of the City, we saw the city of the future transformed from vision into reality. I thought I saw a blueprint of a high-speed train at Coney Island !
Love all the motivational and inspirational wordings, crafted into pictorials. So Creative and impactful 🙂
Home Tomorrow, loved the clouds and futuristic landscapes (be it horizontal or vertical)
Trace your timeline, and major milestones in life.
Innovations from sectors Defence, education, or perhaps vertical farming and sustainable communities. All these concepts are no longer dreams.
Blue Skies, send your messages to the Sky (roof) 🙂
Scheduled events for interested participants, you can contribute your ideas too.
1000 years from 1965….
The skies will not always be gloomy. Venture out, reach out for the next Rainbow!
Take home message for my kids are “Dare to dream, the future is not set”.
If I can see the future, I would like to know whether my hawker centers would still be around in 2030 🙂
More details about The Future of US exhibition can be found on their Website and Fanpage.
– Nearest carpark is SG50 carpark, we had to walk 10 minutes from Meadow carpark
– Bayfront MRT would be even nearer

– This exhibition will end on 08 Mar 2016
– Opening hours 9am to 9pm daily
– Entrance is free
– Duration – If you just breeze through, 30 minutes will do. But I will recommend 1 to 2 hours stay to appreciate how new technologies will enhance our lives
