Flying Umbrella at Kuching Waterfront

Last night, I went to Kuching Waterfront with Jojo and our dad. We've cruised pass the Waterfront many a times, and there were always people playing with some kind of flying objects with blinking LEDs there. Jojo has always wanted to see what the fuss is about, so we went.

the building is across the Sarawak river

I took pics of the Bangunan Dewan Undangan Negeri across Sarawak River, the Square Tower, and the Old Courthouse across the road from the Kuching Waterfront.

I was amazed with the ambience. There were many people at Kuching Waterfront, and many were enjoying themselves, playing with the Flying Umbrella. The Flying Umbrella is a toy that is launched up to the sky using a slingshot mechanism. Its wings provide resistance and allow it to turn and fall down slowly. I wish I took a video, but I forgot. :(

As you can see in the photo, it is a very simple toy. Jojo bought two of different sizes, and my dad had a blast trying it out. Lol!

I love how the lights change in the fountains, and I managed to capture some pics using my digital camera. I didn't want to come along, but Jojo thought it won't be fun if I didn't. I'm glad I did! It was so much fun, although I suck at playing the Flying Umbrella. We thought the name is funny, but when I Googled, there it is!

Fountains at Kuching Waterfront

There were many sellers selling the same toy, and they were selling other decorative items that also has lights. So pretty!

We'll definitely be coming back to play the Flying Umbrella more. Hope you had a fun weekend too!

  1. hey debbs! OMG! Hahahahah I also bought those flying umbrella thingies when we went to Jongker Street Melaka for Buddy and Allie. But honest to gosh, I don't even know how to launch it. People there make it look soooooo easy!! I love it when lots of them are launched at once and they flutter down so prettily! :D

    Anyways, I'm back here in KL already. My brother's wedding was awesome and can't wait to upload the pics especially the wedding video! LOVE IT SO MUCH!

  2. Hey Shem! So glad to hear from you! I wanna see pics and that video! :):)
