  1. I read about the festival in the news today and looked this up to register. But the form is no longer available and i then read registration close on 17 May. Why publicise this if people can't participate in the activity!

    1. Hello, my name is Ria and I volunteer to coordinate Pesta Ubin. I'm so sorry this has happened to you. Places were taken up very rapidly after the Straits Times article came up.

      There are other kayaking activities during Pesta Ubin https://pestaubin2017.blogspot.sg/search/label/kayaking

      Hopefully, you might find something suitable instead?

      Once again, I'm so sorry to disappoint.
