..Give mini golfing a swing, that's what!
I'd first tried mini golfing in Australia more than a year ago, and have been itching to do it again ever since. I know the activity is rather juvenile, more suited for those under 15 to play... but what can I say?? I relish being childish and young at heart. I mean, I publicly broadcast my relationship with my soft toy penguins, for goodness' sake.
So off we drove, all the way to East Coast Park for some mini golfing fun at LilliPutt.
I don't actually have any interest in real golfing (well I've never tried it) but mini golfing is so funny and brainless, everyone should give it a shot if you've never had a go at it - a fantastic couple, family or friends activity!!! Unless you're actually good at real golfing.... then which, I suppose, you'd find this ultra lame. :P
The rest of you non-elitist people, mini golfing is the next best thing! You just pick up your putter, give it a swing, and wait for the hilarious laughs that will follow.
Lilli Putt has 18 different holes themed according to Singapore's attractions and landmarks. They were so creative and it was fun exploring the different holes!!! (That's what he said. Wait, ew no... not really) This one's something to do with the SAF obviously. And check out how the track goes into a 360 degree turn!
If you're a local, you're gonna find these set ups pretty cute and familiar. And if you're not a Singaporean, here's a little insight and peek into what goes on in the little red dot called Singapore!
Changi Airport! I miss living less than 10 minutes away from the airport, at Simei. East side is so tranquil and nice compared to the North T_T
What to do when your friend is beating your score
Sam and I get amazingly competitive when we play games with each other. I HAVE to beat him.... I just have to, every single time!!! Be it board games, arguments and mind games (lol). But I ended up losing the round of mini golfing to him by 1 point. Le sigh. S'ok, I got the mind games part nailed. :'D
If at first you don't succeed.... put the damn ball into the hole with your hand.
The esplanade! Looking, um, disturbingly browned and rusty. When you hit the ball into the passages, the durians light up.
Diana, wrong hole lah!!!!! LOL.
I was impressed by their innovative thinking - this one featured the MRT train system, and you had to wait for the traveling train to stop at its station before putting it into the carriage... and then it would be carried away and deposited into a different section! How fun. *am easily amused*
Me and my crayner Diana. We're the Jedi Masters. I'm glad a blogging work trip could bring about a valuable friend in my life. ♥
Suntec City.. Going up the escalator!
Diana and Byrne giving us a pose. Spot the famous fountain of wealth at the bottom right of the picture... and the hole for the ball to sink into! Wasn't an easy feat getting it in there, especially not with ONE shot, but I did it!!!! Woop woop!
At the Jurong Bird Park!
No prizes for guessing that this is at Harbourfront.
When I first saw this exhibit I was like... whatttt?! Since when did Singapore have skiing and slopes like that? Then I realized it was supposed to be the man made Snow City. A bit (or a lot) exaggerated, but.... #okaycan.jpg?
What is your favorite hawker centre food?
Mine is chwee kueh, prawn mee (soupy type), ba chor mee. satay and roti prata!
Haw Par Villa used to freak me out when I visited many years ago. Walking through the different levels of hell and looking at "people being punished for their sins"....... If you've never been, imagine this: If you told lies, your tongue will be ripped out from your throat. And there would imagery for all of this. I'm surprised a place as censored as Singapore would allow kids to run about those premises with such gruesome looking statues.
"Jess, why do you always make me do degrading shit for your blog...?"
How the different courses look like when placed side by side
After finishing all 18 holes, we shifted our attention to the arcade machines outside.... and dumped in more dollars than we would've liked to get these four toys. LOL.
We didn't even want the toys, but the cheap thrills from claw machines are just too ridiculously addictive to pass up.
The pink one's supposed to be me, and other, Sam. Everyone altogether now..... Awwwwwwwww.
So, if you're looking for a relaxing and good natured fun weekend activity that everyone in your family and group of differing ages and interests can do together, why not check out LilliPutt's mini golfing at East Coast?
