Big Walk 2012

Date:  Sep 2, 2012

6:15AM in the morning.  I drove my car and park it at the Marina Barrage – Car Park B. 

Today is the Big Walk 2012 organised by the new paper.  There should be more than 18,000 people joining the walk from The Central to Marina Barrage.   

So, I figure if I park my car there first, then, later, after the walk, we don’t have to wait for bus or taxi to come back to town.  🙂


Last year, the Big Walk is at Sentosa, going thru Universal Studio.  My wife was on business trip to US, and I brought both the kids to the Big Walk 2011.  It was a very tiring day, but it was fun!  So, we decided to do it again.  Here are last year photos.


Jay Jay geared up his number.

Again, Kay Kay refused to put the number on his shirt.  So, we tag it on his bag.
