Our block party rocks residents' day

Lured by the sound of music, the people were drawn to the tent that was abuzz with activities.

It was the second round of the Our Blocks Rock parties, this time held at the open field next to Hougang MRT station yesterday and today.

You can get a sketch of your face, try your hand at Indian handicrafts or have a go on a Spyder bike, a three-wheeled motorcycle.

Think of it as a unique version of a traditional pasar malam.
