You know it must be FUN when Boon Yee and Boon Xin are trying to stop the Red Truck !
Daddy told us the “ang3 chia1” (literally Red car) was primary used to suppress riots. On the news, we have seen water cannon (not your usual shower head) and stinging cocktails deployed to disperse rioters or crowd. No one is getting pepper spray wet today :p
Normally, it is not FUN to be stopped by Traffic police (TP), but last Sunday, kids were happily posing with TP’s mean machines !
Daddy is proud to announce that we did not receive any summon during last weekend’s Home Team Festival.
2013 is Home Team’s inaugural open house, and the theme was “Safe Home, Our Secure Nation”.
Nope, Singapore has strict gun laws (unlike United states), Daddy told us we do not need to buy pump gun at Walmart. The only pistol/gun/rifles we have do not need ammunition, we just need water.
We are telling you the Home Team’s showroom is more happening then those along Ubi or Leng Kee ! Our rides come in black or red, and some are even armour plated !
Boon Xin was more interested in her light sabre (KL Kidzania has one identical rod)
What happens when our MRT has an incident? We fondly remembered our tunnel walking experience at Sengkang MRT Depot.
We saw the mini me “truck” roll off from a Hazmat truck during 2013 NDP. Pretty cool.

We love SAF’s open-houses (be it Air Force, Navy or Army), and this is our first Home Team Open house. Judging by the non-stop high beam and horning at the Vehicle gallery, we suspect kids (and families) are shouting for an encore 🙂
Great Work organisers! We hope to attend more Home Team open houses in the near future.
It would be cool if organisers can build a prison cell for future open house. Show the kids why it is miserable to lose their freedom.

– if your Resident Commitee (RC) is organising a MRT evacuation drill with SMRT, sign up quickly. Our kids were impressed when the MRT’s front door unfold to reveal the tracks.
