Last Sunday, 25 November 2012, my family and I went to Batu Ferringhi beach to join thousands of locals at the Penang Beach Carnival 2012. On what was a glorious day, we participated in the Sandcastle Competition and took home the 1st prize. Our Kingdom of Heaven-inspired sandcastle was constructed in two and a half hours, with Chris (who loathes getting his hands dirty) dishing out instructions to his parents.
The theme for the sandcastle competition was “Cleaner, Greener Penang”, hence the array of flora that was scavenged nearby.
Below is a photo of our winning entry.
In addition to playing with sand, we also watched part of the Mr Penang Beach Carnival 2012 Bodybuilding Competition (“flex… and relax…”) and flew Chris’ kite on the beach.
It was a terrific day at the beach!
