Singapore Night Festival 2014

William Close featuring The Earth Harp, front lawn of National Museum Singapore

Singapore Night Festival runs for 2 consecutive weekends (22 & 23 and 29 & 30 Aug), starting tonight. Big and loud drums from ZingO opens the fest with a roar - it was brilliant that drums could be choreographed this way!

Then we catches William Close before walking away; there it struck me. I was alarmed when i saw a majestic visage of a divine figure looking down on us! Something from Ankor Wat? "You see that!?" I was jolting Ric. "Anybody sees that!?" Yes. I was pleasantly alarmed :)

The 7 light projections by Clement Briend on the trees are surreal, and mystic with their playing of ancient music. The night is feeling exciting!

Came back the 2nd weekend when it rained heavily, it stopped and we attended block party at the Armenian Street with the roving brass bands and treats of free durians - plenty for everyone!

Had thoroughly enjoyed the Night Fest! Mood was festive and enthusiastic, drawing much participation from the general public. And the dull city night is enliven!
