Singapore's I stands for Ice exhibition and ilight 2014

2 degree Ice art exhibition

don't be fool by the '2 degree'... it's actually at -15 degree Celsius .... brrrr.... 

Getting there info: 
Bayfront Mrt station - Exit A - turn right - walk along the pathway for approx 5 minutes and you would reach

adult weekday price - $25
student price - $20 
additional $5 for bubble winter coat rental 

*suggestion: bring your own gloves if possible... the free gloves provided weren't really useful at  keeping the fingers warm in the extreme low temperature

we were the red penguins.... heee

蔡妈妈 in frozen 小桂林

蔡大宝 in frozen paris

蔡二宝 acting gungho and who had refused to put on his gloves so that he could use his phone but scrambled for them within the first 5 minutes.... wahahaha

btw, this raffles doesn't seem to be proportionate.... kinda too short or was it that the ice had melted??? 

蔡三宝 caught busy selfie-ing the moment she stepped into the display hall... (-.-!!!)

all, except angela who had an leg injury, had fun sliding down the mega huge ice slide 

yes, mummy too.... heee

4/5 of our 全家福 ... as 蔡小宝 was at work and couldn't join us for this outing... =(.... but we still had fun.... wahahahaha... =P
claiming that she's an expert at taking group selfie, all of us snuggled close to take one but then none of us, including the "expert", were starring at the right spot lo... (-.-!!!)

all the 20 sculptures were lined so close together that we completed one round within 30 minutes... 

knowing that re-entry was possible, we headed out to thaw ourselves.... only to return 10 minutes later at 4.30pm sharp for the 3 minutes "snow fall"... 

fabulous photo of alfred taken by mom.... =P 

me with my hands tucked into the coat as my fingers were in pain due to the freezing cold temperature... =S

angela acting as 真子 while trying to remove the 'snow' from her hair ... heee

we didn't check out the ice bar area... =S , instead we bought snacks at the food corner to keep us entertained while we waited for  蔡小宝 to join us for dinner after his work... 

overall, an unique experience due to the extreme low temperature... wasn't really interested in the sculpture as they were not as intricate or magnificent as what i had expected. The sculptures were also not aesthetically displayed but all lined like sardine right next to each other, creating a very clutter and claustrophobic feeling which i dislike ... =S

dinner was at ding tai feng at mbs before we moved on to 
i light marina bay 2014 which was held just outside mbs

installations were up since 7 march and the last day for viewing them will be on 30 March, Sunday. Lights on from 730pm till 11pm everyday during this period except for 29 march where the lights would be off for an hour from 830pm to 930pm as part of earth day special.. =) 

There are a total of 28 installations.

installation: A2 - The Wishing Tree

 first, collect a tag which is attached to 2 light bulbs 
second, pen down your wishes 

mummy wishes for 和平 (peace), i wish for happiness, 

angela wishes for better health, alvin wishes for 'nonsense'

while alfred wishes for the sky... =P 

third, attempt to swing the tag onto the wishing tree
fun yet dangerous  but nobody cares if they get hit or hit anybody....
