Star Wars Day 2017 in Singapore

Every year, Star Wars fans around the world mark May 4th as Star Wars Day, celebrating everything related to Star Wars. In Singapore, the 40th anniversary of Star Wars, was celebrated with a big three days event at Gardens By The Bay in Singapore.

May 4th, 2017 falls on a Thursday, with Gardens By The Bay turning into a Star Wars festival ground, ending off with the Star Wars run on 6th May 2017. While I didn’t participate in the Star Wars run, I visited Star Wars Day 2017 on May 4th and 5th at Gardens By The Bay, the SuperTree Grove at Gardens By The Bay turning into a Star Wars festival ground.

At the SuperTree Grove, there were booths showcasing Star Wars merchandise/toys for sale, memorabilia, charity photo booth, photography taking opportunities with Star Wars characters, the Star Wars AT-ST Walker making a guest appearance and getting a lot of fanfare! The charity photo booth was managed by fellow photographer friend Ted Chen Photography, a hardcore Star Wars fan, it was great catching up with Ted for a short time during my visit to Star Wars Day 2017 on May 4th.

In the night, the SuperTree Grove transformed into a magical night of lights and music display, presenting Garden Rhapsody: Star Wars edition. For the Star Wars fans, we all love this Garden Rhapsody: Star Wars edition! The SuperTree Grove became SaberTrees, shining high above into the Marina Bay skyline for three nights during Star Wars Day 2017 in Singapore from May 4th to May 6th. This was a magnificent sight for Star Wars fans as well as photographers, watching it from the grounds of Gardens By The Bay or from the Marina Bay Sands hotel linkway bridge to Gardens By The Bay.

Star Wars Day 2017 was really nice, with the bigger event space at SuperTree Grove, the Star Wars AT-ST Walker making an appearance and the SaberTrees shining high and bright into the Marina Bay skyline. They were some of the highlights that made Star Wars Day 2017 much more special and memorable! I hope that they can continue with it in Star Wars Day 2018!

Wishing all fellow Star Wars fans, May the 4th Be With You, Always! Looking forward to Star Wars VIII – The Last Jedi on 15th December 2017!

May the 4th Be With You (in Year 2015)

4th of May, a date that Star Wars fans worldwide unite to dedicate a day to the world of Star Wars, with the words May the 4th Be With You (May The Force Be With You). Being a big Star Wars fan, I still vividly remembered the Star Wars trilogy when I was a young kid (I think the first Star Wars movie that I watched was Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back)

May the 4th Be With You, Always! Attending May the 4th Be With You events in Singapore, it’s like making a pilgrimage to the world of Star Wars and where Star Wars fans gather together to celebrate everything Star Wars. Celebrate the Force with Star Wars Singapore! For the year 2015, Star Wars day in Singapore was held at Suntec City on 2nd and 3rd May 2015. I went on Saturday, 2nd May 2015 to soak in the atmosphere, admiring the various Star Wars toys on display and wondering which Star Wars Lego toy to buy next!

Looking at some of the artworks and photographs of Star Wars Lego/figurines in action, I was motivated to re-ignite my Star Wars Lego scenes conceptualisation and planning. Time to go back to my drawing board and plan my next few Star Wars Lego scenes projects!

For all Star Wars fans, May The Force Be With You, Always!

Star Wars – May The 4th Singapore 2014

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away …… there is something mystical, it is a powerful invisible force coming from the galaxy of STAR WARS. I can still remember, as a young kid growing up, I was blown away by Episode IV – A New Hope, Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back and Episode VI – Return of the Jedi. While I wasn’t exactly sure which of the three original Star Wars trilogy that I watched first (probably Episode VI – Return of the Jedi), I became a big fan of the Star Wars saga, following their new stories when Star Wars I – The Phantom Menace, Star Wars II – Attack of the Clones and Star Wars III – Revenge of the Sith.  With anything Star Wars, I was keen and excited to follow the new stories and beyond.

Recently, Star Wars came/moved into Singapore, with the official opening of the Sandcrawler building in Singapore, it started to fuel my excitement for Star Wars again. Visiting the Sandcrawler building in Singapore and finding Master Yoda, it was like a padawan seeking the Jedi Master! With an excitement building inside me all over again, I am start searching for my Star Wars saga story books, comics and posters. Even though I didn’t start any Star Wars toys collection, I was slowly influenced by my Cousin Joel pretty awesome Star Wars Lego toys collection and a dedicated glass cabinet to display his Star Wars toys and DK‘s collection and photographs of Star Wars Lego figurines! Starting my Star Wars Lego story is another adventure that I will share in another post coming soon! There were 2 photographers with some awesome and mesmerising Star Wars Lego and Toys photography, check out Vesa Lehtimaki and Jooka5000 photographs on Flickr! One day in the future, I want to do something like them too!

Star Wars Day, May The 4th worldwide, a day where Star Wars fans all around the world celebrate. From the photographs and sharing on social media platforms, you can see how huge and far away is the Star Wars galaxy movement! In Singapore, Star Wars Day on May The 4th was held at the Jurong East Library with lots of fun and excitement for the young and young at heart (old). There were showcase of Star Wars vintage toys collection, artworks, story telling,  customised stormtrooper helmet display & sale and the favourite 501st Legion Singapore Garrison appearance, entertaining fellow Star Wars fans and taking photographs with them! The 501st Legion Singapore Garrison made an appearance at Kinokuniya Free Comics Book Day 2014 on 3rd May and it was a crowd puller! Check out my photographs from Star Wars Day 2014 in Singapore – MayThe4thSG!

Celebrating Star Wars Day for the first time officially in 2014, the experience was great and fun! I am looking forward to slowly add more Star Wars Lego and maybe Star Wars Toys too! The fun and excitement, the toys and the future Star Wars saga into Episode VII (coming to the screens in December 2015) and beyond. The Force is Strong and we all Star Wars fans can feel it! The Force is a common and powerful bond that ties and attracts all the Star Wars fans together.

“Moving forward into the future ahead of the Star Wars Saga I will, add more and share my Star WarMoving forward into the future ahead of the Star Wars Saga I will, add more and share my Star Wars photographs I will! Collection of my Star Wars photos here you can see!”
