Flipside 2013 at the Esplanade

I read Debra’s post on Flipside at the Esplanade and went down to check it out with the Family and it was a lot of fun. We checked out some of the 3D optical illusions at the concourse area and took some silly photos there.

Anya really enjoyed making her way through El Laberint, an open-air maze of doors and windows. Each door had to be solved to be opened. Anya’s favourite was one where she had to use a hook to pull up a small hoop. It was way too high for her so I had to carry her while she held the stick with the hook.

The kids were intrigued by the Human Trees, two people dressed up in costumes to look like topiary. We followed them around for a bit and managed to get a photo taken with them. Considering that the costumes must have been hot and uncomfortable, they were very sporting.

We also caught a bit of the Budak Pantai performance and listened to about 3 songs before the kids got tired and cranky. It was definitely a good way to spend an evening! Will look out for it next year because they have different performances and activities on different weekends.
