18 April was a scorching hot day, with the temperatures rising up to 35 degree celsius. And *SCAPE Youth Park added to the heat with the excitement and energy brought by CAN! DISCOVER!
Kicking off the Singapore 2010 CAN! Festivals, CAN! DISCOVER was one huge party celebrating friendships across cultures!
Here’s what I thought rocked about the event:
1. The W.A.D!’S NEXT Race, which brought people all around central Singapore! They visted really cool places like the Peranakan Museum and the Chinese Heritage Centre in Chinatown. They even tried out interesting activities like making Indian appam and Chinese calligraphy!
2. The world culture booths at W.A.D! In The World! featured some awesome games from all over the world. It was like I didn’t need to spend a bomb on a plane ticket to see different cultures and enjoy food, games and music from all over! Melty Swiss cheese. Fun table top games imported from Belgium. Colourful costumes from Mongolia and Korea. I saw lots of people having fun collecting stickers in their CAN! Passport as well and redeeming their funky CAN! DISCOVER fun packs later. So, there was something for everyone there!
3. I LOVED the performances staged throughout the afternoon. I caught EIC, TiGaia, ZingO and the Brazilian Capoeira performances and was wowed by all the talent. And the nice tunes. The smooth vocals. The thumping drum beats. The sheer agility of those capoeira dudes. Good stuff there!
All in all, it was a sunny and awesome day at *SCAPE Youth Park for everyone who made it down – staff, volunteers, embassies, schools and everyone else!
The good news is, the action does NOT end with CAN! DISCOVER! 😀
