Monster Jam® is roaring to Singapore

[ Tickets Giveaway ]

This August 19, “Family entertainment” grows to Monster Jam® proportions at Singapore National Stadium!

Monster Jam Singapore

Monster Jam® is all adrenaline and suspense, pure RAW power and action!

Think Gigantic wheels, crazy rides, creative and outlandish paintwork!
Expect donuts, drifts and perhaps flips and crashes!

Read on, we have x4 tickets to giveaway 🙂

Video (YouTube link) : This is what spectators can expect!!

What comes to mind when you hear Monster Jam®?

Super-sized wheels, both in terms of dimension and engine power.
Imagine Rides running wild in pit, crushing other cars, leaping over dunes and sometimes somersaulting!

Did I mention crazy suspensions yet? Monster Jam Trucks can JUMP! Expect Sand and dust when the donuts and drifts kick in!

Crazy flips and rides overturning and turning tortoise are very common. I suspect some visitors will be looking forward to the spills, wheels coming off and crashes too!

Come 19 August, if you step into the Pit, be awed.

Imagine National Stadium, converted into a dirt track, with humps and littered with scrapped cars. Wow! Families will be screaming in excitement!

– Loud and powerful 1500 Horsepower engines!
– Go for drivers’ autographs and photos. Each ride and their drivers are celebrities, each has a personality. Hey, I just knew some of the Monster drivers are females, YES Boon Xin go 🙂

– Go feel and touch the Monster Jam® machines. Each weighs up to 10 tons! Each wheel is 350kg, with tyre size of 43″ inch! I told the kids our MPV’s tyres are only miniscule 17″ inch.

Monster Jam® is celebrating its 25 years anniversary this year, and 10 rides will be roaring to Singapore.

What we like about Singapore Night Festival 2016

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.

National Museum, I would prefer the light show at SAM (Singapore Art Museum)

SAM lightings are more attractive, we see forest, aquariums etc 🙂
20160820 Night Festival

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 🙂
20160820 Night Festival2

We saw light sabres in the crowd too haha 🙂
20160820 Night Festival1

Parkour anyone? Outside Peranakan Museum.
20160820 Night Festival3

All the museums nearby are opened to the public (except SAM). We decided to visit the stamps at Philatelic Museum.
20160820 Night Festival4

Besides understanding Singapore’s history and heritage through stamps, you can follow one of Shakesphere’s act too.
20160820 Night Festival5

Year of the Monkey, you see “them” everywhere in the museum 🙂
Singapore Philatelic Museum

Lots of interactions and photo opportunities for the whole family.

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?
