Tiong Bahru

You know you are in Tiong Bahru when you see these flats. The design is one of a kind giving you that laid-back 1960s feeling when you might see aunties with beehive hairstyles and teens in a-go-go fashion and you see the toc-toc mee boy wandering around the corridors hoping that someone would place an order of noodles with him. This is a nice neighbourhood to retire in except that the property prices here are high as the sky - you pay for nostalgia and a neighbourhood that is almost a tourist attraction.

West Coast Park - Changing light.

Nature is beautiful because it full of surprises. Though we can predict weather conditions fairly accurately, we can never foresee if a day will bring us a beautiful sunrise or sunset. We just embrace beauty when Nature bestow it on us the way I did one morning when beautiful clouds tinted pink loomed high above the trees int the park. From that moment I knew it was going to be a glorious day and I was right. Instead of walking around the park to get some exercise I was so mesmerised by the changing light and its effects on the surroundings that all I did was to take lots of photographs. I used the manual setting of my Powershot SX210 IS for most of the shots and found that the colours were pretty close to what I saw than if I were to use the auto settings.

Queenstown Library

I needed to give my eyes a treat and so I took them to the Queenstown Library, sat in the 'Quiet Reading Room' facing a beautiful piece of absolute heavenly greenery that I fear will one day be eradicated and replaced with ugly blocks of concrete. At the same time I needed to feed my soul its daily dose of writing and so with the help of my faithful netbook, I logged onto the free wireless network and wrote a few emails.

Mount Faber scenery

Expensive apartment blocks that do not project a very stable image. I prefer my home to be on the ground.
The new cable cars are black. Why?Sea Princess Cruise Ship.Start of the Marang Trail that goes downhill to Vivocity.

West Coast Park

Peace in the park in the morning,
