The 28th SEA Games Carnival themed around the SEA Games mascot, Nila, was held at the Singapore Sports Hub which was set to keep visitors entertained and soaked in the SEA Games atmosphere. It promised a June Holidays like no other, we can’t wait to visit.
We missed the official opening ceremony of the SEA Games Carnival as the boys were involved in filming, we were unable to attend however we won’t want to miss this fun-filled carnival that we came back with our family and friends another day to check it out.
At the carnival, visitors will get to pit their wits and skills in a variety of sports and games, but with an interesting twist, such as the 300-degree table tennis table, hockey-golf, pool-soccer, the gravity defying ‘Walk-On-Water” and the first ever laser-tag battles at the Sports Hub.
Before participating in the games activites at the Carnival, at Kallang Wave Mall, we saw the “Make-A-Nila” booth and spend some time looking at the different types of Nilas made by people from various walks of life including celebrities, organisations, students, professionals etc.
This Nila is made by Joseph Schooling, our national record holding Singaporean swimmer.
This Nila is made by Dick Lee, Singapore well-known talented singer-songwriter.

Even though we were there on a weekday morning, the whole venue was crowded with many wanting to bring their families and friends to partake in this carnival.
