Captain’s log                                      Stardate: 60292.6 (Aug 29th, 2016)

Good things will eventually come to an end. For some. Infact for some places. They will either be demolished forever. Or be replace by a house, an apartment or an outlet or mall. Some will undergo an extensive renovation.

For this case, was the Bedok Interchange McDonald’s. Those who had lived within the vicinity for many years had grow up knowing the place as there was once a cinema right on top of it. Even an arcade. But as years grows by, the arcade had cease operations and replace by another tenant. I remember seeing a movie once at the place, many years ago. So I wasn’t sure if the cinema still exists up there after that. Cause I was told its a karaoke lounge now.

But it’s the fast food itself that many of us gonna miss. Since young, I’m one of the people who had patronise there to chill out with friends and family. And when the arcade was around, me always go there after school. Growing up at Bedok for so many years, and its a sudden surprised to find out that it will cease operations on 28th August 2o16.

Perhaps due to a new one which was inside the newly Bedok Mall which is just opposite the road. After this, wasn’t sure what will take over its place. A new fast food restaurant perhaps? Or some outlet? An air-conditioning coffeeshop, maybe.

On that day itself, I had my last breakfast before its closes down for good in hours time. And some time back, me and my friends whom most of us live within its vicinity had our last lunch there. At least we managed to savour the last of its surroundings, the sounds, the staff before its gone. Memories flooded, as I look back through those years just be looking at it. Considered as a childhood place. Good old times….

Well, its time to say goodbye. Its been nice knowing that it had served its valued customers for so many years. As they say, not every place will be there forever. A new place will take its place. And it will be for many years till it will be torn down and another will take. Or leave it as an empty space….

Captain’s log                                       Stardate: 60278.6 (Aug 27th, 2016)

On 20th August 2016, our TokuCosSg (Singapore) community was been invited to make a birthday appearance for a little boy who just turned 4 years old. And this boy loves Power Rangers. His mother had previously came across our Toku Facebook page and had send a message from there. I first responded to it and subsequently alerted the rest this exciting news.

So that day came. 4 Power Rangers, all Red Rangers had turn up to give the best and a memorable Power Rangers birthday party for the young chap. Myself as the Red Ranger from Dino Charge, and the 3 of my pals were from Lost Galaxy, Ninja Storm and Megaforce series.

Initially wanted to cos in my usual MMPR Red Ranger. But it was suggested from my friends as to why not come in my Dino Charge, since kids as his age may not be familiar of the past rangers. His generations were most born watching Megaforce to Dino Charge series. Not to mention the upcoming Ninja Steel. I’m inclined to agreed on that.

And good thing I had came as Dino Charge. Cause upon arriving at the birthday party which takes place inside a multi-purpose hall, the first thing I saw was a balloon-sized figure of Dino Charge Red Ranger. This tells me that this kid may have loved Power Rangers Dino Charge! So surprising, indeed.

Most of the birthday accessories, party clipart cut-out, wrappers were all decorated using Mighty Morphin Power Rangers theme. There’s even cut-outs of Power Rangers Samurai been attached to the birthday theme backdrop. Still, its an overall Power Rangers Birthday Party =)

We hardly had such, for people like this loving parents of a 4 year old who wanted a Power Rangers birthday party since their son loves Power Rangers. Just Power Rangers. Not the usual “All Superheroes Birthday” theme alike. So why not we too make it something special for the kid.

As such, we had put a runway, where each ranger will appeared one by one in accordance to the series. Each will do their  different poses, and then followed by a short skit. 2 in 1 show that will keep the birthday boy, the kids there and their families entertained! =D

At the end of it all, comes the birthday cake. Which was design as a Power Ranger Dino Charge Birthday Cake. That excites me even more! Hahaha!

Photoshoot time for the kids and their families to take photo with us as much as they want to. Not to mention, having the birthday boy taken with his parents to give a memorable time of his life to remember. Who knows, he may want us again for his next year’s birthday.

Here’s some of the photos taken. Some few were taken from the boy’s mother. Many credits to her =)

And yes, there’s also a video taken =)

Once again, Happy 4th Birthday to our little hero! We Rangers hope you enjoy yourself. Not every kid were lucky to have Power Rangers or any other superheroes celebrating their birthday with them. This makes a truly memorable birthday party ever. Something you will remember as time goes by. And don’t forget to thank your Mummy and Daddy for their effort in giving you the best birthday of your lifetime =)

Also, many thanks to the boy’s parents for having us to take this opportunity to coming down for your kid’s birthday. We will try our best to make it as interesting as possible; should you invite us again. We are grateful cause at the same time it helps to promote our Toku community. To reach out to those who might be interested to join us, and to those who wanted to have us for a birthday appearance and such. Not really easy to find some unless you know of someone who can. As long its for a good cause =)

Indeed, a morphenomenal birthday for that little chap! We Rangers wish you all the best as time goes by. Hope to see you again in the future! Power up! =)
