A lot of people when they come, they will walk up to the roof top.

For us, we walked from the reverse direction, from the Satay by the bay, we will see this green green slope.  And surprisingly not many people here.  So, we decided to fly our kite here and we setup our picnic here too.

Look closer.  This is the one.


Kay Kay just witness a runaway kite.  The kite and the handle flew away in front of him.  

So, he was a bit scare of loosing his kite.

So what we do is we tie the kite on to his waist.

And we have align the telescope properly towards the east.  The moon will rose from the East.


Let’s see if we can see Jupiter or not.


This is the direction the moon will rose from.


Oh… some people are playing the drones.  The drones change green and red color.  Cool. 


Here we get the glimpse of the moon.


Laurel’s camera can see the color.  Some how, my camera filtered off all the color.
