Celebrating Sentosa 40th Birthday (The Grand Finale)

Leave a comment

Here we were in Imbiah Station at 7pm. My mother and sister secured a nice spot to watch the fireworks, and they didn’t move at all. They sat there while we were looking around in Imbiah. First, we went to see The Merlion Walk (located behind the Big Merlion):

As the sky was getting dark, this place was getting more crowded and more people were coming to see the fireworks at 8pm. The emcee  gave some questions and small presents while waiting for the firework to start.

The festivity in Imbiah at night

Watching the last Buskers Show for the day

Buskers performances (Mr Dyvinetz) demonstrates total control on the wheel in a play of balance and beauty. Two thumbs up, absolutely a stunning performance! My son (who was very sleepy actually) didn’t move from his very uncomfortable seat!

Then came the Grand Finale: the closing performance of the day:

Start with the violin performance (wonderful music, beautiful songs, good performance)

Here comes the birthday cake (what’s a birthday without a cake)

Let’s Party………..!!! (Rafael and Jane were very enthusiastic in blowing the trumpets). The busketeer distributed free birthday hats, trumpets, and also masks

At 8.45pm, they started the 3D Merlion Show:

Watch as the Merlion Tower comes alive with 3D moving effects and with a combination of colors

Although the Merlion 3D Show was more than outstanding as we all said so, I can’t say the same thing for the firework show. It was good, but not as spectacular as we hoped so…..

It’s time to blow the candles and sing happy birthday. That was the end of the celebration

Anyway, we had great fun that day, and my son keep saying (even until now):

R: Don’t forget, next year we must come to Sentosa again, I want to watch more shows…..

M: Aye Aye Captain…………….

Hi there. I'm from Indonesia but now live quite far away from my home country. I love cooking for my family. I learned how to cook for the first time from my mom and I believe that mom's cooking is always the best, and I do hope that my son will feel the same too even though he grows up so fast. I love Indonesian food as I grew up with it, and I promise to myself that my son, although he doesn't live in Indonesia right now, will always like and enjoy authentic Indonesian food. I make this blog so that my family will always remember our togetherness and happy time that we had, are having, and will have when we eat together and have good memories about a mother's love through her dishes. Hopefully these recipes will help other people to make healthy home cooked dishes for their families.
