Street Photo - Merry-Horsey-Go-Round

Merry-Horsey-Go-Round
Every year during the Chinese Lunar New Year, there'll be a carnival set up at The Float, next to The Esplanade; the same place we held our National Day Parade, for the past three years. I don't really fancy such place and hardly patronize every year. However this year I happened to be in that area as I was heading towards The Helix Bridge linking to Marina Bay Sands.

The carnival operates from afternoon till night fall. I was there in the sunny hot morning and the whole place was empty and I came across this Horsey-Go-Round machine. I walked around it and found this interesting signboard, shown in the picture above, that reads "LARGEST PERSON SITS HERE!"

I guess it is to be fair for any body regardless of age and sizes, to have the chance to enjoy the ride, though it seems quite intimidating. On the flip side, it's for their own safety as they are over-weighed and might cause damage to the Horsey seats and result in unwanted accidents.

The next interesting thing I noticed was the Seahorse character alongside with a Horse. According to Chinese zodiac, this year is the Year of Horse and hence they had these creatures featured together on this machine, which is nice. All these elements came into place and I believe they make a Horse-say (means wonderful in Hokkien dialect) street photograph, don't you agree?

"#FREE MY INTERNET" Protest


Singapore media regulators at Media Development Authority (MDA) on 1st June 2013 imposed new licensing rules on 10 news sites run by Yahoo’s Singapore unit and two domestic media companies, requiring them to apply for individual licenses, furnish a “performance bond” and comply with government orders to remove any objectionable content within 24 hours.

A week later, advocacy group #FreeMyInternet organised a protest at Hong Lim Park which attracted approximately 2500 attendees. The protest was part of an ongoing campaign calling for the removal of the new regulations and amendments to the Broadcasting Act made by the MDA.

The #FreeMyInternet protest was preceded by a blackout of more than 150 participating blogs and a petition to rescind the new rules which has garnered more than 4,000 signatures. More report here.

I was there to witness and to support and to take pictures. I did not stay till the end anyway here are just a few shots I took on that eventful day.
