Our weekend started early this week! As part of my bday celebration, ys brought the whole family on the Singapore duck tour.

We chose the earliest slot at 10am which turned out to be a good choice cos my group was a small one and the weather was not that warm yet. The safety video warned that the tour is not recommended for infants because it can get rather bumpy at times but I thought it was relatively safe so long as you hold onto your toddler especially at the “splash points” where the duck gets in and out of the water.

It was quite enjoyable I must say, playing tourists. We started off from suntec, headed to the F1 pit area where the splash point was, cruised down past the flyer and the floating platform towards the merlion and did a turn back, past the art science museum at the marina bay sands. The land route took us past the padang, the old city hall and supreme court, st andrew’s cathedral and swissotel the stamford. We actually learnt a couple of things about Singapore which we never knew about, and I have to admit that Singapore does look quite impressive especially when we were doing the cruise down Singapore river.

I put Aly in the manduca carrier for getting in and out of the duck cos the steps up to the duck were rather steep but unstrapped her once we were seated. She was so curious about her surroundings and was generally pleased throughout the ride (which lasted for about 50 minutes). In fact, she got the best seat on the duck cos she was seated on the guide’s lap and was busy tugging at her clothes and her microphone while the guide was giving the commentary.

Ys and I definitely had fun and we are sure Aly enjoyed herself too! I thought it’s a great idea for a family outing!
