I love the new setup that NParks put at Raffles Place as part of their 50 years of greening Singapore celebrations. In fact, I think it would be a great idea for them to keep it there permanently! Because of the retro park and playground thing set up there, Raffles Place actually became much less of a dead town during the weekend.
It is also at this retro park that I realised that my timid daughter has gotten much braver. She’s actually happy to sit on her own on a swing clearly constructed for someone of adult height. One wonders why she still fervently objects to inserting a coin in kiddy rides, not that I’m complaining as long as it is not out of overly extreme timidness.
