Weekend SnapShot #18

Weekend SnapShot


Playground @ Big Splash



I wanted a ride on those, the vendor stared hard at me like I was an idiot.
No need for motor license.No Traffic Light. No Accidents Involved.
2 Bucks for 5 minutes.

Saw this while we were there.
Can anyone imagine a 90year old hopping like a kangaroo?!?!
My 2 kiddos persuaded me into allowing them act like kangaroos the next trip there.

We also went to the temple sometime this week for ChingMing Festival.
A festival for Chinese to pay respects and grave sweep our deceased ancestors. Since none of my deceased relatives/ancestors were buried. We went to their final resting place at a temple.
Though armed with the camera in hand, I didn't want to be disrespectful in taking the pictures inside the hall. All I took was a photo taken of 3 Chinese words engraved on a signboard just at the entrance of the Tablet(Memorial) Hall. Words - 思先堂 which means "Memory Hall of Ancestors".
