Kite flying is a popular cultural and recreational event in Asia, when I was a young school kid, I remembered making my own kite as part of my art and craft lesson ! Well, kite flying today has advanced as well and the designs were getting better, trendier and more colourful ! Kite flying is suitable for all ages and everybody, making it a fun and enjoyable event for all to enjoy !
The NTUC Income Kite Festival Singapore 2009 was presented by Act 3 International and it was held at West Coast Park on the 29th August and 30th August 2009. More details about the NTUC Income Kite Festival Singapore 2009 can be viewed HERE ! This event attracted a great turnout and the car parks were packed and fully occupied, it attracted people of all ages and nationalities, coming down together for 2 days of fun, kite flying and entertainment.
I went today to West Coast Park, 29th August 2009, and the beautiful clear blue sky were filled with many different types of kites and designs flying high up in the beautiful clear blue sky! The crowds and kites set the mood to be fun and enjoyable, along with performances and activities, for everybody. Regardless of kite size and design, it was the fun and atmosphere that made the NTUC Income Kite Festival 2009 a great event.
Moving around taking photos of different kites flying in the clear blue sky, nice weather for outdoor events, switching between my telephoto lense (70-200mm f4 L) and wide angle lense (17-40mm f4 L), it gave me a happy and relaxing feeling, back to my youngster days of fun and play ! Walking around happily snapping away beautiful memories, many participants there enjoying themselves too. Soon the kites filled up the sky and it was an awesome view !!

After a few rounds of walking around, I went to sit down along the West Coast Park esplanade, enjoying the sun sets down on me while enjoying the kite flying in the sky, a tranquility of peace, fun and relaxation.
Hope you folks enjoy kite flying just as I did today !
