Caricature live sketching for Mounbatten 50th Anniversary

Dragged myself out of the bed today. Went to bed around 12am last night, but only managed get to sleep at 3am+. Why? Because of that little devil - my daughter, doesn't want to sleep till 3am+.
Had a bad running nose this morning. My nose was like a leaking tap. Luckily, I managed to buy Panadol from the shop behind my sketching booth. (Can't imagine my look if without the pills, when Mr Lim Swee Say spoke to me!)
Initial booking for this event was from 8:30am-10:30am, but extended for another hour due to long queue. The organiser, Katong Community Centre, didn't want to disappoint the residents.
This event was to celebrate the launch of the Mountbatten 50th Anniversary logo.
Ministers of the Parliament - Mr. Lim Swee Say, Mr. Lim Biow Chuan and Dr Fatimah Lateef were invited to launch it.

These 2 boys bought me a bottle of 100 Plus. Thank you.
How considerate of you, though I have a bottle of mineral water bought with the Panadol.

She was holding an umbrella when she was queueing for her turn.
In order not to have the impression of holding a 'tongkat', I drew her swinging her legs.

Time extension after this mother.
Went to put 1 more hour of parking coupon.
Don't want to kena fine by the "aunties'.
The mother (above) was really happy that her 2 daughters (below) got a chance to be drawn.
She bought me fried carrot cakes and a bottle of green tea, after knowing that I have not taken my breakfast. (Didn't have the chance to eat anyway!)

The crowd thought they are twins, maybe because of their dress and braids.
They do have some similarities in their features, but not to the extent of twins.
