Filipino American Expat in Singapore

FDS won silver and bronze in the International Business Community Mixed and Open categories. You can see videos I took at the end of this post. We headed down to Boat Quay to watch them compete against other expat teams. I’ve never seen so many dragon boat teams in one spot. Congratulations FDS!

The rest in photos (and videos at the end).

Some of the bigger teams (or teams that can splurge) have their own tents.

I don't have photos of FDS because I was focusing on taking videos of them (see end of this post).

You could feel the energy because of the drums and the shouting.
