The clouds were magnificent, the grass was newly mowed and there was a huge blue ship in the distance.
Satisfied, I walked across the field towards the seafront to take a close look at these palms and was delighted to hear the whispering sounds of their leaves as the wind went by.
New berthing place for this yacht that was not at this spot before. I will not be surprised that one day we would be staring at rows and rows of these vessels and be robbed of a view of the waves.
How can one not sit and look at these clouds? Most would sit and stare at their iphones like the man who brought his two kids to play in the sandpit but spent his time on his handphone.
Seeing this girl on roller blades 'exercising' this tiny dog that was gasping for air and desperately running on black booties to keep up I am reminded of the evil kid that tortures toys in Toy Story 1. I believe his name was Sid.
I am reminded of a fishing boat that as an undergraduate, I took a 5-hour journey from Mersing to Pulau Tioman many years ago where there were corals near the beach and the water and sand were still in pristine condition. Alas, no more.
Another morning...24 Sep 2010.
