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.
