Arofanatics Carnival 2011

Posted by Dawn at Sunday, September 04, 2011
Today, CT brought the family to a carnival organised by a group of arowana fish lovers. He knew of this carnival as his colleague is part of the club. So anyway, it was held in Pasir Ris Farmway and since it was so near our place, we dropped by with the children. It was held in OTF- the usual fish shop which I always frequent to buy my fishes, plants and fish food.
The place was crowded with cars all parked along the road..massive jam. Nevertheless, we managed to find a lot along some grass patch.
There was free popcorn, italian gelato with various flavours like green tea...Also had free cotton candy which surprisingly, the kids didnt enjoy. There was also free balloon sculpturing for the children. I love looking at fishes but still do not understand why people would pay so much for an arowana or luo han fish.
There were various competitions going on during the carnival and when I saw the fish or sting rays that were the top 3 positions, I just cant understand what makes them so good.
Oh well..anyway, I am just happy with my ornamental fishes in my small fish tank. Anyway, after the visit, we went for dinner nearby at a coffee shop in Elias where the kids had a go at a retro playground which is probably not a common sight anymore since most playgrounds now have nice soft padded and colourful floor, with colourful plastic structure.
Though the newer playgrounds seem all so fun and attractive but there's just the feel of the old which will somehow make me feel that simplicity is the best!
