THE DAY OF THE Clean & Green Week Bazaar!!!!
Today is the day. THE DAY. 1000 PAMPHLETS. AIMED and ARMED TO SELL!
We loaded Abby's car with 3 whole tubs of squeaky toys, Southern Shores of Singapore pamphlets and posters the night before. 1000 PAMPHLETS. It was expected that 10,000 people will patron the Clean and Green Week bazaar. 1000...that's ONLY 10%. Am I right?
Did we manage to meet our goal? Did BWV manage to sell 1000 pamphlets? DID WE.. DID WE?!!??! What do you think? Take a guess. No? Yes? heheheh. What? You think I'm going to tell you?
Here's a hint. Oh LOOK! LOOK LOOK. Doesn't that guy with Tse-Lynn HOLDING THE SOUTHERN SHORES OF SINGAPORE PAMPHLET look familiar? Hmm? I could have SWORN I've seen him somewhere before. I wooonndderr wheeree... Hmmm.
Who da dude?
Well, doesn't matter. Doesn't TL look looveelyyy. And the pamphlet look soooo niicceeeeee.....and shiinnyyy.....=)
THE BWV BOOTH
Anyway, back to real business. THE BOOTH! This was what we hoped to attract the 10,000 over people expected to come to the bazaar. Ria came down at an ungodly hour of 7.00 am to Yew Tee MRT station field. We, on the other hand, thought that we were suppose to be there by 8.00 am! Well, one party came too early, the other one, late (not too late...we arrived at 7.45!). The CORRECT time was 7.30 am
.... BAH. Communication errors.
But we managed to get the booth UP! In TIME!
The SIGN Santa's little helpers made!
Ria's photos up on display!
PAMPHLETS FOR SALE!
$2.50 November Special! U.P. $4.00
And 100% goes to MARINE CONSERVATION efforts by BWV!
And then the people started pouring in! AND WE WERE SOOOO SHORT HANDED!!! Soon, we were left with THREE PEOPLE to handle the cash, sales, pamphlets, publicity, talking to public, promoting marine life in Singapore etc.
THREE PEOPLE! Anyone out there want to come help out for such events? We SOOO need the help. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org okays? Hehehehe....
But later on, Jeff Low and Gilian came along! And TL's friend Kim Yong (from NUS High School!). Oh and of course ZEEHAN! (see her thumb below being eaten by the killer whale...). Who wore hot sweltering jeans and a thick POLO T-SHIRT! And the day was SOOOOOOOOOO HOOOTTT..............!!!!!!!!!
THIS little boy wanted to buy a LIONFISH soooo BADLY.
He told his Mama, "I WILL PAY YOU BACK!"
WAS SOOOOO CUUTTEEE!!!! The BOY. NOT the lionfish. I still to my stand that it's UGLY.
JUST LOOK AT IT!! Hideous!....Well, OKlah, not THAAATT baaaddd...
Jeffrey thinks they're DAMN CUTE. For some odd reason.
ANYWAY, enough with the LIONFISH. Ria actually got a FAN. Got her to AUTOGRAPH his Chek Jawa guidebook! Haha! Here's a photo of them...
When I grow up...I want to be JUST like YOU!...well, he didn't ACTUALLY say that. But it would have been so cute if he did, right?
And Ria had a DIFFERENT kind of FAN too. ^&*$%#^ The perks of being Ria. FANS EVERYWHERE.
And of COURSE, what is a fund raising booth and public exhibition booth without GILIAN!
SO SWEEEEET! Ain't she?
Oooh... but can be scary also. So volatile!
OTHER BOOTHS AT THE BAZAAR
Well, the Bazaar was actually quite BIG and there were LOTS of things there! We managed to walk around when it got not too hectic. Here's what the rest of the bazaar sort of looked like...
N Parks brought this cute little CATERPILLAR! IT'S SO CUTE! EATING A LEAF. GRABBING IT WITH IT'S FAT STUBBY LEGS. SO CUUUTTEEE!!! YUM AM AM AM....
There was this anti-litter game too! Teaches people not to throw TRASH into the WRONG bin. i.e. normal trash into RECYCLING BINS. Very much needed education, I think.
Oooh, and PAPER MAKING for kids! I wanted to try...but...so pai-seh!
Well, this one took the bite. What message are they trying to send?
"LOOK! You can EAT...AND CRAP...at the same time! INPUT and OUTPUT!"
And I found out that there were ORCHIDS named after celebrities like SHAH RUKH KHAN. And RICKY MARTIN. And Bae Yong Jun....many more...urgh.
PITCHER PLANTS!! SO MANY!! SO CUTE!!
And THIS is the Singapore Green Map! Like the Southern Shores of Singapore guidesheet/pamphlet... Green Map...meet BLUE Map! =)
AT THE END OF THE DAY...
By 5.30 pm, we packed up to get ready to go. And of course, we got bored too. With so few people around to harrass now...
Zeehan's Thumb: "ARGGHHH HELP MEEE!!! THE KILLER WHALE GOT MEE!!!"
Of course we had to COUNT our fish money. Treasurer Abby hard at work!
And after asking permission, we unscrewed our BWV signboard off our booths to RECYCLE. Hey! It looked nice and saves Santa's little helpers from making another one! hehehehe
And after packing up, we were READY TO GO!
BYE BYE ALLS!!! SEE U NEXT TIME!
