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.

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.

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.
