After my adventure with vintage cars at the Raffles Landing site, I slowly made my way to the Singapore F1 Pit Building. The weather was a bit hot and I just pop into shopping malls along the way to enjoy the cooling air-conditioning.
In conjunction with the National Parade month in August, Singapore had been organising for the past 5 years, an event that attracts both the young and old, locals and overseas visitors. The event is our Singapore Heritage Festival.
There are many different events happening at the Singapore Heritage Festival 2008, do drop by their website and read about their various events and activities. Do join in the fun too !
As for me, being a photography and car lover, the vintage cars from Singapore and Malaysia and other countries too, came together as part of the Singapore Heritage Festival Vintage Cars Grand Prix and Concours display at the Raffles Landing site on 27th July 2008. I was a bit late therefore, I couldn’t catch them racing in action on the road (within speed limits).
I remember viewing the vintage cars at the National Museum Singapore and could identify some of the vintage cars. However, there were more different vintage cars on display at the 2008 event ! Sometimes, they do not need more words and introduction, admiring their classic beauty and racing power of the vintage cars are an art by itself.
Do drop by my flickr site and enjoy viewing the vintage cars !
After exploring the Singapore Garden Festival at the Suntec Convention Centre, I went down to the newly completed F1 Pit Building behind/beside the Singapore Flyer for the K1 Grand Finale Carnival Day 1.
There were 2 days of events and I went on both days. As I reached at about 4pm++, some of the earlier events had already passed. There were many different types of events happening concurrently and I felt that it was a rather family-oriented car carnival, with kiddy rides, playground for young children, go-karting on the F1 track and pit stop area, drifting for drifters, sports cars display and Audi R8 sprint ride for children 7-12 years old.
In the month of July and August, they would be the 2 months whereby we would be to participate and enjoy many different types of events in Singapore.

It had been quite a long time since I went to take photos of flora and fauna, used to love taking photos as it gave me a very quiet time to enjoy and improve my photography while enjoying the beauty of Mother Nature.
Today, on the sunday 27th July, I went for a day of automobile photos taking. Firstly, it was the Singapore Heritage Festival – Vintage Cars, followed by K1 Grand Finale Day 2 at the F1 Pit Building.

The National Museum of Singapore organised its first Night Festival at the National Museum of Singapore and Singapore Management University Campus Green, with a dazzling and extraordinary performance by Studio Festi from Italy, with the theme of their magnificent performance, Dancing Sky.
I rushed there after taking the first set of fireworks from the Esplanade Bridge earlier, met up with my Cousin Ching Ching at the Singapore Arts Museum before crossing over to the SMU Camp us Green, even though we were early, it was getting crowded with many people, we just made our way and could only stay on the Campus Green side, apparently, was quite a great view of the various performances actually.
