Wacky Duck Tour

On a bright sunny Saturday morning on 16 August 2008, the staff of the Fort Canning Lodge brought the children on the Meals-on-Wheels programme for an excursion on the Wacky Duck Tour at Suntec City.

This is the first time the children are taking a tour on the ‘Original Splashing Duck’, which is both a bus as well as a boat! It uniquely combines a city and harbour tour on an authentic Vietnam warcraft, offering an exciting 60 minutes of amphibious touring adventure on both land and sea.

We booked a total of three ‘Wacky Ducks’ so that everyone could get on board. Besides the Lodge’s and National Office’s staff, some Board Members and their families as well as some youth volunteers also accompanied the children on the tour. The tour took us around many historical, cultural and iconic sites in Singapore. A tour guide was also on board each vessel to give information to and entertain the children. Each child also received a’ Wacky Duck Whistle’.

At the end of the tour, the children were taken back to the Lodge for a puppet show and a specially prepared buffet lunch consisting of kiddy food like hamburgers, pizzas, chicken nuggets, jellies and ice cream. It was obvious that the children enjoyed this excursion from the happy and satisfied look on their faces.

We look forward to organising another interesting and enjoyable outing for the children next year!
