River Festival 2009

Posted by Dawn at Sunday, June 21, 2009
Took the opportunity to go down to Clarke Quay to catch the River Festival today. It has been a while since we visited CENTRAL shopping centre. So took a train down to visit the place and catch the activities happening by the river. It was also a Father's Day Celebration for CT.

When we were there, we managed to catch an illusionist performing on stage.



We went to Waraku Restaurant for dinner.

I was really spoilt for choice in this restaurant as it serves so many different kinds of Japanese food. They even have udon noodles with carbonara sauce, which CT had. Lots of carbo as it also came with a pork katsu rice bowl.



I wasnt too hungry. So had a light seafood ramen which was very nice!



Had an enjoyable dinner as we had a good view of the river while eating.


Caleb ordered a Japanese seafood fried rice for dinner.


I also gave him some of my noodles which he loves too! We kept him busy and occupied as I brought along his file, which consists of colouring papers as well as a box of colouring pencils. This file comes in handy whenever I go out, I would just grab it and bring it along with me, just in case Caleb gets cranky and at least, there would be something to keep him occupied.



After dinner, we went walking along the river which was very pleasant as it was quite breezy.



Scenery was spectacular especially when the sun was setting. I felt like a tourist as I kept snapping pictures of the area and scenery.



As I was walking and admiring the scenery as well as the zillion number of restaurants you can find in the area, I actually randomly thought to myself,"how I wish I was a tourist here in Singapore."

It is a very strange thought as in actual fact, I should feel happier since I am a citizen here than a tourist! But I felt if I were a tourist here, it would give me the 'right' to be in this place, and spend money! haha. Dont you feel that each time when you go overseas on a holiday, you have the mood to spend on food or shopping even when there may be some stuff you can get cheaper back home? Its really all about the mood. Once we're in a holiday mood, we tend to spend more.

So I was quite envious of the tourists in Singapore after my trip down at Clarke Quay. It was really very HAPPENING!



There were even Japanese drum concert, boats with different themes parading down the river etc etc.





I also discovered tonight that the steps along the river had lights that changes! Did you know that?





What an enjoyable evening!
