Let's Party Together

Christmas is all about sharing your joy and laughter around, isn’t it? Residents in Bukit Batok East Zone 2 RC shared their joy with one another at the fun-filled evening celebrating an early Christmas.

The party was kick-started with a medley of Christmas carols, sung by residents and volunteers in a harmonious tune. As everyone were immersed in the festive mood, a series of balloon sculpting, magic show and puppet performance put up amused them further. The delighted children took the party higher when they danced the rest of the night away in our funky mass disco-ing. The smiles on their faces were simply magical.
