When I was younger, I liked the excitement of the city. Shopping along Orchard Road on Saturday was a frequent activity. Sometimes I make impulsive purchases but most times it was just window shopping. Why I had enjoyed those times, I cannot remember exactly. Now, being older and living in a house that has too many things in it, most of which are in boxes and in storerooms, I have been weaned off city shopping. Instead, walks in the parks and nature reserves are what I find more relaxing and enjoyable such as this walk taken today at the Dairy Farm Nature Park.
