Was taking a walk this morning and stumbled this plant/flower. Not sure what’s the name but it seems pretty common here. Interesting thing is that I’ve not seen them this big before. Coincidentally, I managed to snap some others in different stages of blooming. Check out the bokeh effect.

Lazing the holiday away

Has been quite a dramatic and eventful holiday with a trip to the hospital. But all is well now and taking some time to enjoy what’s left of the festive season. We should never take things for granted and must be somehow prepared but yet not paranoid and be pessimistic. It’s all about striking the perfect balance. Enjoy a wonderful Monday everyone.

Something to calm the weary soul.

Was attending a meeting today and was totally worn out. This week has been really busy and sleep has not been forthcoming. Was not able to sleep on time and could not sleep at all. Saw this painting as I was passing by a clinic and somehow it just made me feel better. Decided to go in and take a pic and staff didn’t mind at all. Stopped short of asking what’s the name of the painting. Anyone with answers? Might be self painted for you all know. Enjoy.

A stroll on Sunday

Decided to exercise and did a short walk after lectures for a famous icon in Singapore. It’s been around for many years and it’s been opened for free to the public for a while but it’s my second time here. Things have changed quite a lot. And it’s really quiet now and you don’t really see locals roaming around the park.

It’s still quite nostalgic to think about the place since I was last here decades ago and was quite scared. Now it just seems like a lesson in Chinese mythology and also learning about the origins of the place. Although roaming around the place a few of the sculptures seemed out of place. I am still trying to grapple the eventual concept of this place. But it’s definitely worth a visit.

Out for a scroll

Wasn’t feeling too well the past two days. Decided to come out to look around rather than being stuck at home. Came to the new terminal and wasn’t impressed. It was quite small and looked like the old Budget terminal which has gone through extensive cosmetic surgery. Don’t think this place can service a lot of passengers but good enough to meet the current needs.

Serious business.

Haven’t put up a post for the past few days. Was at a shopping mall and was nice to see so many family lots and hybrid lots. Then I saw the mall was being serious about the family lots being reserved for families. Not sure if this is a good thing but I fully support the idea. What is your opinion?

Meh… Monday blues

What a start to Monday. Congrats to those not needing to work today and staying in bed to laze the cool Monday away. For those of us who has to braze the rain and get to work, it’s going to be an exciting week as always. Be positive and always look forward to it. That’s my way to chase the blues away. Have a great week everyone!

Keeping fit

Decided to start honouring my New Year resolution of trying to keep fit. Took a longggg…..stroll this morning and experience the sights and scenes along the way.

Most of us taking different modes of transport don’t really stop to appreciate our surroundings (me included) anymore. Our smart devices play a much larger role in our life than anyone or anything else. Why don’t we attempt to stop staring at our phones and look up once in a while to savour what’s in front of us. 😬

Bikes galore?

I’m sure we have come across this scene in countries where there’s bike rental apps and services. Bikes strewn all over the place once users are finished with it.

Think better education and civic mindedness needs to be in place so these scene (one of the less messy ones) does not destroy the beautiful landscape in the background. Change will be hard. But change needs to be done. Otherwise, convenience to the masses will just turn to be an inconvenience mess.
