Kites at Marina Barrage

As we reached the place, the first thing we saw was a Kungfu Panda kite. It didn’t know that kites were flown here and it was quite spectacular to see them dot the sky.

A shocking pink one caught my eye.

There was a fountain courtyard area for kids to splash about. I also spotted a dining place.

I was amazed that Singapore had an area so breezy that kites could be flown that high. I often hardly see the leaves rustle. I guess it’s because this is an open area and the wind is not blocked by tall buildings.

You walk up this circular path thing. From there you can get a view of the Marina Bay Sands hotel. To think we were right at the top of that moments ago.

Really looks like a ship balancing on the beams.

Trippy to think we were right on the edge of the ‘ship’.

A father teaching his kids how to fly a kite. Seems to require skill and technique.

A well dressed mum with a falcon kite. It almost looks like a fashion accessory.

The young boy was as captivated as I was of the barefoot girl in the skull dress.

These are how big the kites are down on the ground.

The last thing we saw as we left was the orange squid flying high in the sky. It was getting a bit too hot and sticky by then. It felt like 90% humidity.
