Ice Skating @ Kallang Singapore

Last Saturday, I went with my friends to Kallang. Our plan was to do some first-time skating? This should be an action packed adventure on ice for we are first-timers. This could also mean disaster ....

We took a cab from Buona Vista to Kallang and arrived there at around 7PM. We were a bit lost and found ourselves at the third floor of the building. The entrance fee was around 14SGD if I was not mistaken and we need to pay for the gloves and the socks as well so we shelled out 21 dollars more or less, as one can bring their own equipment.

Warning, the skating shoes had a foul-smell so it's best that you layer your socks and also bring some sanitizers.

Anyway, that did not stop us from enjoying the night. We started to slide a bit while holding on the side-walls of the rink. I said we were first-timers, so we were like snails trying to cling ourselves.... It was fun actually doing that. I happen to get this child's assistance tool so I can practice a bit of my footwork. Olga and I were skating with it for a round. Jason was so excited and began skating while we were still being assisted by the equipment we got. After that round I began to have a bit of confidence. Actually, there were some mishaps as my friends stumble and I bumped myself as I did not know how to stop, to one of the newbie skater. Activities as such wouldn't be fun without the pictures right? And I guess, some bruises ....

We got tired after an hour of doing our stuff. Just a bit satisfied as I was able to skate around the rink for like two to three rounds without any assistance from the side walls or from someone or from anything.

We really enjoyed that simple trip.

Since we got hungry after that fun activity, we went to look for food at their food court but did not like the menu so we headed to Subway and had our dinner.

I like to go back to Kallang to do more skating in a few weeks time with more friends to join us, so it's much funnier. It's going to be really exciting and I can't imagine people falling on ice ... again.

Have a great night everyone. Ciao!!!

Congradulations on strapping on the blades! Fun, eh! I'm from Canada so skating is almost like second nature for many of us. Actually I spent 8 hours at the arena this weekend as my 8yr old son had a hockey tournament. We lost all our games, but sure had fun watching.

Welcome to the 'skaters club' :)

Aww.. It's such a looong time since I last skated there. Have been planning to go there after the reopening for so long but it didn't happen. The place looks good now.. better than I last remembered. :)

I know it's late but it's better than never. So, Happy 2010! :)
