Who says Singapore is boring

There has been so much going on lately that I've had to "prioritised". Can you believe that ? The last time that happened was when I was living in New York. Don't let anybody tell you Singapore is boring. The best part is that all these activities are free, open to all & easily accessible.

The River Festival actually happened end of last month with a whole slew of acts like concerts & wine tastings. The anchor event is called AIR - an aerial performance across the river. Sounded interesting so we were there.

It was a nice night out so very early on, everybody had already stationed themselves strategically to catch the show. Using cables across the river, the performers with their outrageous costumes glided to & fro, did acrobatic acts & eeks even touched the water (due to the rain, the river had turned a murky brown & both The Girl & I cringed when we saw them make contact with the river).

My pictures don't do justice to the show
