Did you catch Chingay 2010 on TV just now? What’s your take on it? Did you enjoy watching the parade? Having had my chance to finally watch Chingay live this year (with a ticket entrance), I was very excited while waiting for the day to come. However when I was finally there, seated at K189, the feel I was expecting wasn’t quite felt. Still it was an enjoyable night, thanks to the appearance of Kung Fu Panda, Puss in boots and the other characters from Resort World Sentosa at the finale.
Watching Chingay Parade to me has been an almost yearly affair. I will camp along Orchard Road, behind the barrier, to watch the pretty floats and beautiful costumes. Never had chance to witness the performances as they’re only performed at the main stages along the stretch of road. Now that I think of it, I think their first attempt at the Pit building was not quite a good one cos the stretch of road is shorter, as compared to Orchard Road. That may be why I felt very messed up. Seated in between the red and yellow zone, most of the time I hear two commentaries and music going at the same time. -_-”
Still, I must thank STB for the complimentary tickets to this year’s parade. It was quite an experience for me. The next time if I’m attending, I’ll remember the seats to grab for best view. Sharing the lookable photos taken with the Canon Powershot SX120.
I was screaming so damn loud and still I couldn’t hear myself! Should have just screamed all the frustration out during those few minutes! My first up-close experience with fire crackers! No wonder these are banned in Singapore. Its sooo smokey and sooooo loud! And it messes up the entire space! So not fitting into the clean and green movement we have here. *coughs* Seriously, its just pure danger lah. Worst than playing with fire.
And I wasn’t alone! Spotted few rows down from where I was…
So that’s all for my experience at Chingay 2010. Next parade to look forward to – NDP2010!!!
