Have you ever seen a skydancer?
As a Marina Bay Singapore Countdown official blogger, I get to experience the behind the scenes activities line up for the big event. Today we will take a sneak peek at one of the fringe activity for New Year Eve as I was invited to be a Sky dancer for Go Fly Kite.

When I first heard about this preposition, I was a little bewildered and apprehensive. I was not sure how different this kite flying experience would be. How difficult can it be when it comes to flying a kite?
After all it is just a matter of tossing the kite and catching the wind.
I was told that we had to have a 3 hours long training session at the Go Fly Kite headquarters at Riverside point before we can fly the actual kite.
3 hours to learn to fly a kite? Are you kidding me??
Yep those are exactly my thoughts.
We were briefed by Mr Michael Lim , the founder of Go Fly Kite who gave us a brief on Go Fly Kites history and vision. Interestingly , the kites' designs were one of the kind and designed by Michael and his team. Born and created locally, this is truly a Uniquely Singapore product.

It takes a few 'crashes' before I managed to get my bearings right. Flying a kite, especially an RC kite, is more challenging that one would expect.
Time to reach out to the skies.

It took much persuasion to pry the remote control from his firm hands.
The RC kites that we had are light and portable. From the first look, it resembles most kites in the market. On closer inspection, you can see it fitted with LED lights, battery pack and a propeller. The one major difference from a kite is that there are no strings attached. With a propeller attached, it would mean that the sky is the limit!
No strings , no limits.
Which coincidently is the motto of GoFlyKite.
