I bought a kite some years ago but I can't remember where. Maybe Toys R Us? It's small, lightweight, collapsible and multi-coloured.

As for kite-flying, in the west, people tend to go to West Coast Park cos there is at least one open field there for kite-flying. Must watch out for radio-controlled aircraft though.

Theres a "new" open field area in the west. The old Tang Dynasty place has just been demolished and cleared up, it near to Jurong Country Club. Can go there now, its just off the aye , Corporation Road exit towards jurong direction. West Coast Park is pretty crowded and theres always some games going on during weekends in the open field.

As for kite, we make our own, the very simple diamond shape type with a very long colourful tail. Can get okie ones from ToysRUs, or just the cheap cheap $2 to $3 type from neighbourhood stores.

Remember to watch out for thunders and lightnings.

Ya, must check lightning alert for the day before going cos even when there is no rain, there may still be lightning. Make sure you check where you can take cover from BOTH lightning and rain in emergency. At West Coast, the Mc's is very close by.
