Floods on my mind

Being at the Marina Barrage for the first time was an eye opener for me during the Singapore International Water Festival. I explored the six galleries at the Sustainable Singapore Gallery and one gallery that interested me was Gallery 4. I learnt how the Marina Barrage worked as a water supply and flood control area …

By youths for youths

Before going to Marina Barrage for the Singapore International Water Festival (SIWF), I did some research regarding water conservation and management, mainly from the official Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) and Singapore International Water Festival website. From SIWF, in the Principal’s Message, nearly 3,000 students will be participating in this event. As my news angle …

The walk that got me thinking

At the SIWF, I was curious as to why students were walking around the barrage under the blazing sun, in traditional costumes that were not providing the slightest cool. I approached them.

Water is vital for jobs too

The launch of the Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) at Marina Barrage on 27 June 2010 was not what I expected it to be. Many who were there were unaware of the event. While they partook of the beauty and the largesse of the barrage in events like dragon boating or were simply there to …

Singapore River – then and now

A slight shower on Sunday morning had just ended and the weather was perfect for a day out. I headed down to the Marina  Barrage for the Singapore International Water Festival. Before I could enter, there were already streams of people walking out and I overheard a teenage boy saying in Singlish, “Nothing much, what, …

Protect nature = protect water

I went to the Mediacorp Guided Walk, organised by PUB and Mediacorp, expecting to cover the more concrete areas of the reservoir. What I didn’t know was that the guided walk consisted of a 45 minute trek in a nature trail. None of us were dressed for trekking and it had just rained the night …

Making a difference at home first

As I walked around the Marina Barrage during the Singapore International Water Festival like a hawk swooping on potential interviewees for my News Writing assignment on the event, I found myself getting distracted by the various goings-on.
