THE VENICE OF PUNGGOL

Feeling right at home, we joined our new neighborhood's event yesterday -- it was the opening of The Punggol Waterway aka "The Venice of Punggol" (the largest man-made waterway in Singapore, 10-85m wide, 3-4m deep, 4.2kms long). Read more about the project here.

Sharing some photos from our neighborhood fiesta...

No photo: the fireworks display. Sorry, masyado akong naaliw. As expected, the background music was Katy Perry's "Firework." LOL.

There were free shuttle buses
going to the event venue.
Free! Yey!
The Punggol Waterway is a 10-minute ride
from our building.

By sundown, families found viewing spots on the hill.
We were all waiting for the Prime Minister,
and the fireworks display.
The Fiesta's Guest of Honor:
Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong,
who officially opened the Punggol Waterway.
We found a spot on the hill,
together with the rest of our neighbors.
