Space Odyssey U Picnic 2016

by - Friday, March 18, 2016

Over the weekend, we went for the Space Odyssey U Picnic 2016, organised by NTUC U Family, at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park.

It has been our yearly affair to go on a picnic once a year for some family bonding. This year we got my parents to join in too!

It was past 6pm when we reached the park and the whole park was like already full. We saw families with their kids, with their pets or their extended families. We saw people eating, children running and playing games on the big field. Groovy music was also playing in the background. The whole atmosphere was very electrifying.

The event also seeks to take a Singapore’s largest family wefie. The drone was 'flying' in the sky to take a wefie of everyone. Everyone was waving at the drone and the kids were chasing after the drone.

This year's goodie bag is super huge and heavy. It was loaded with food and drinks, tattoos and glittering rings, wet wipes and a picnic mat, all ready to start the picnic anytime. Of course we brought our own trusted picnic mat and some snacks too.

There were games and activities available. However, we did not participate in these because the queue was too long. Our boys are not those who can wait patiently in a queue...haha. But I saw many others who were enjoying the activities.

Bouncy Castle - Kids' favourites

Family Relay Course

As the sun slowly sets, the weather also gets cooler and more comfortable. We were simply relaxing, eating and enjoying the atmosphere and the stage performances.

As darkness falls, many people got out their shining rings. The boys were happily waving and playing with the rings.

One of the highlights of the night is the LED dance. Guess who were performing? It's Mr Seah Kian Peng, NTUC FairPrice Chief Executive Officer and Mr Desmond Choo, NTUC Youth Development Unit Director!

We left after the LED dance performance. However, the party went on with more live band performances and Singapore's own Lady Gaga performance.

We had a wonderful night and are already looking forward to U Picnic 2017!

  2. I've never been to such picnic before. It looks so relaxing, I must try one some day!

  3. I passed on this year after year coz I thought it would be boring for the kids. But then again, looking at all the fringe activities offered, I might reconsider next year.
