Dragonboat race

We walked 1.5km from our home to Bedok Reservoir anticipating an afternoon of fun at the dragonboat race between the Canadian and People Association's teams. We arrived at the venue to find the place rather quiet. There wasn't any carnival, food, beer or games and clowns!

Long walk to the park.

All we saw were some people milling around waiting for the race to begin. When it started to rain, we ran towards the shelter and sat amongst a bunch of bored racers.

The event slowly gathered momentum when the teams took their dragonboats out to the waters. We only managed to watch one race because I had to leave for dinner at my parent's.


I am not exaggerating when I say Rusty was the only attraction at the event.

At least he kept us amused.

He also made a toddler very happy...

And a couple of babes stopped by to cuddle him...

I miss the Bedok Reservoir. I have been running there since my teenage days. 4.3km is the distance per round. Your post brings back to me fond memories of that place. Too bad, it's too far for me to venture to these days. Plus my knee is in no shape to run.

Rusty looks really awesome!
