This event is brought to you by UChat, Malaysia’s first 2-in-1 app that combines messaging and e-wallet functions. UChat is the messaging half of the app that connects you to your friends and family.

What’s extra unique is their expressive UBeans stickers - for those times when words just aren’t enough to express ourselves!

The other half of the app is their e-wallet, UChatPay. Besides cashless payments, there are other functions such as splitting bills, requesting funds, and transferring money to your friends or your local bank account that makes this such a convenient way to manage your money!

Giant Water Pong
The game you know has been supersized to guarantee more fun! Throw as many water balls into your opponents’ water buckets, then celebrate your sweet victory by drenching your opponents with the water from the buckets.

Water Balloon Volleyball
Put your teamwork to the test and prove that your team is the best by taking on this slippery challenge. Balance the water balloon in your team's towel and toss it over to your opponents with all your strength. The ones who breaks the least water balloons will be victorious.

Water Soccer
Take your normal soccer and add way more fun! Manoeuvre a soccer ball through the shallow pool full of opponents waiting to steal it from you and score the most goals. Bend it like Beckham water bending style!

Tug of War
The addition of a pool between the competing teams really amps up the desire to win and see your opponents get immediately "punished". Use all your strength to keep your team from falling in and send your opponents to their watery fates instead!

4. Fret not as there are also family-friendly water activities such as Water Family Fun, Water Gun Challenge, Giant Bubble Pyramid, and Rock Paper Scissors Water War
