Singapore's first 'snake boat' race

When I witnessed Singapore's first 'snake boat' race
This was conducted at Chinese Garden in association with Onam festival. The boats were nowhere near the authentic snake boats (chundan vallam) from Kerala. In God's own country, this is a sport which exhibits great degree of team spirit and held in connection with Onam. For enthusiastic expat malayalis of Singapore this was an attempt to clone the celebrations and enjoy it with the spirit we do back at home. It was first of its kind in Singapore and I hope that it will improve with time...
