May is a month of water-related activities for all of us here at A Winsome Life and last weekend, we were very happy to have Glenn Yong, a Professional Photographer, to cover an event for us at the River Safari Singapore.
In conjunction with the upcoming premiere of RIVER MONSTERS 6, renowned angling guru and biologist Jeremy Wade made a guest appearance at the River Safari as part of Discovery Channel’s ”River Monsters Live In Asia” tour where he thrilled hundreds of fans and fishing enthusiasts with spine-tingling stories of some of his most unforgettable adventures from the new season, encounters with monstrous freshwater beasts in Asia, personal tips on how to catch monster fishes, and even took the opportunity to meet his biggest fans.
Jeremy’s visit to Singapore marks the final leg of his three-city “River Monsters Live In Asia” tour which kicked off in Jakarta on 22 May 2014 and Kuala Lumpur on 24 May 2014; and in true RIVER MONSTERS style, fans had the opportunity to witness Jeremy in action as he dived into the world’s largest freshwater fish tank, the Amazon Flooded Forest, with a host of underwater creatures, including his nemesis, the arapaima; a fish that once brutally rammed him in the chest, leaving his heart with very deep bruising and pain for over six weeks.
“I’m excited to be back in Singapore after 30 years, and thinking back to that time, my life now is so different. Back then nobody was very interested to hear about freshwater fish and since then, there has been quite a bit of transformation in the fishing world. Swimming with the manatees is not something that I have done before and they felt quite friendly. I would like to thank my fans for watching River Monsters and Discovery Channel for this amazing experience and it happen,” said Jeremy after his exciting experiences.
Premiering 8 July 2014, Tuesday, at 9:00 p.m. [Singapore/Hong Kong Time] on Discovery Channel, the six-part RIVER MONSTERS 6 series is one of his most challenging; with Jeremy having to travel over the course of a year to extremely remote locations across the Amazon to get to the bottom of inexplicable mysteries surrounding some of the deadliest human attacks by the most vicious RIVER MONSTERS on the planet.
Should you miss out on any episodes of RIVER MONSTERS 6, fret not because RIVER MONSTERS 6 encores every Friday at 11:00 p.m., Saturday at 8:00 p.m., and Sunday at 11:00 a.m. Personally, we are so looking forward to watching RIVER MONSTERS 6 on StarHub TV Channel #422 [Discovery Channel].
