I brought two smaller kids to Changi Airport to catch the highly anticipated Pikachu parade 🙂

The crowd went wild when PIKA PIKA waved to us !

PIKAs just need to shake left and wriggle right, and crowd would chant “So CUTE! Kawaii!

I am not a fan of PokemonGo. The kids play the game, just not on my phones (kee kee), and I was swayed by Pokemon vibes.

At T3 Departure Hall, Snowflakes, Christmas trees and Gingerbread house rings in the festive spirit. Do peep into Santa’s workshop and Mrs Claus’ Confectionery too 🙂

Starwars has landed at Changi Airport

Force is strong at Changi Airport, queues are longer!
Not piloting today, but standing so close to our dream X-Wing fighter is already epic.

Those in the queues can actually cosplay in Starwars costume and take a cockpit photo too, how cool!
(You can dress as a Chewbacca or Imperial Stormtroopers or rebel and pose in the cockpit.)

Never mind if this war did not happen in a galaxy far far away, the Starwars exhibition is happening in the East, at Changi Airport. Starwars Fans are turning up to get up close with X-Wing or TIE fighters.

A life size X-Wing! Look at the fans surrounding the fighter, second floor is packed too.
Changi Starwars Crowded

Pretty cool premiere before Starwars 7 is released. If only the fighter can open its X 🙂

Similar to previous traditions, a bouncing castle has appeared at T3 row 11. This lighthouse is super easy to surmount, just hit the button and see the lights . Did you noticed the Northern Lights (Aurora) backdrop?

Norway is not only about Vikings and Salmons, there are pretty awesome landscapes and alps.

Every Sat 4pm, from now till 02Jan, Stormtroopers will battle Imperial guards around X-wing fighter. This is the most crowded period! Other than 4pm, you should have a lot of opportunities to selfie with X-Wing or TIE.

TIE fighter at T2 (next to BK), protected by stormtroopers. Where is Darth?

Whichever angle you look at the TIE, it sill looks menacing and impressive. Perhaps I am a fan of the Dark Side 🙂

Starwars exhibit runs from now till 05 Jan 2016, catch inter-galactic battle between Stormtroopers and Rebels every Saturday at 4pm. More details on Changi Airport Website and Fanpage.

Tips to enjoy Starwars at Changi Airport :
– There are more interactions behind the X-Wing wall at T3, perhaps we can find “Harison Ford and Princess Leia” (We had to skip due to the crowds)
– Starwars exhibition ends 05 Jan 2016
– Every Sat 4pm, Stormtroopers will battle rebels (you need to squeeze to the front, easier for kids than adults)
– Avoid peak hours to get decent selfies with X-Wing or TIE fighters
– All Starwars fans must make one journey to Changi Airport

More photos have been uploaded on our Fanpage album.

Frankly speaking, this Green Soldier (Mob Man) flashing means we have to report to camp! Say bye bye to your happy weekends and partying. Our boys always complained that parents are strict and restrict their freedom. They will soon understand what is “2359” hee hee.

Even the skytrains have been decorated with pretty motifs!

SG50 and Changi Airport Home Spots. Have Fun exploring and learning about Singapore and Changi Airport’s history. A pity the Chicken Rice, Satay, and Chili Crabs are hidden in the Transit sections 🙂
