Are you one of them?
May your year be as exciting as a fireworks factory on fire!
BOOMZ! BOOMZ! BOOMZ!
I had a wedding dinner to attend at Novotel Clarke Quay yesterday so what better chance to try out the new camera that I’ve gotten last week? Hence, I make my way down to Clarke Quay four hours before the dinner and took my time exploring around.
I’ve checked the weather forecast before I left the house and it really rained as predicted when I arrived.
Not one to beat a hasty retreat, I whipped out my camera nonetheless and braved the torrents of rain which pelted mercilessly upon my umbrella.
Some of these pictures were taken single handedly (pun!) as the other hand was busy restraining the umbrella from eloping with the wind…
The row of colorful shophouses
Fortunately, the rain did not last very long and I was soon able to manipulate the camera with both my hands again…
See that structure on the right? It was the G-Max
A closer look
Watch the video I took from the opposite bank
It costs a whooping 18 bowls of Wanton Mee per person per ride!
That’s almost one day worth of salary for some people!
Moving further up the bank
A penny for your thoughts?

What is my ideal life?
It is enjoying a cuppa at a idyllic corner and watching the world go by…
I’ve heard so much about Chen Fu Ji Fried Rice but are their fried rice really that ultimate?
Here’s how Read Bridge looks like and I love those Victorian street lamps!

Everyone loves baubles!
I love Christmas ornaments!
After taking these few shots, it was time to attend my best friend’s wedding.
Congrats, K & MC!
It was a fun and exciting day getting to know my new camera better. I’m still exploring the features, especially the manual functions. I hope I could come up with better composed pictures in time to come…
Here’s wishing a very Happy Holidays to all who came this way!
It’s Christmas tomorrow and it might be a little too late to ask now but what the heck…
Where’s my Santa Sugar Mummy? Buy one for me here!
Let’s hope the economy in 2010 will be a better one!
reached for the switch and as the lights flickered on, a movement on the countertop caught my attention.
A cockroach, probably out for a night snack, was scurrying away for dear life. He sped across the stove, down the cabinet
door and made a bee-line for the sewage hole.
Without hesitation, I picked up the insecticide, gave it a vigorous shake, aimed the nozzle at the sewage hole and pressed hard.
I returned to the kitchen an hour later (to get myself another drink) to be confronted by this…
Pardon the fur, I’ve been shedding quite a fair bit these days…
I didn’t realize that there’s a whole family of them living inside the sewage hole.

I stumbled upon this unique park one day when I sent my Mum to attend a course at the NTU Alumni Club located at Bouna Vista.
NTU Alumni Club sits on top of this tranquil park
I decided to explore around after sending my Mum to her class.
There are two ways to enter the Park.
The first was through the main entrance via Bouna Vista Road while the second was via the small path beside Chromos building along North Biopolis Way.
Chromos and Helios building
According to the One-North website:
waterwall is a continuous vertical wall of approximately 83 metres long
aligned to the adjacent promenade pavement. This wall forms a retaining
structure against the hillside with an angled bend following the
The height of the facade varies from 1.5m at the ends to 3.6 metres at the centre corner and highest elevation.
I tried to capture the entire 83 metres using panorama.

I like ferns
I find trees with ferns growing on them especially charming
See the hidden fruit?
Spot the moon. Or rather, what’s left of it…
The hilly terrain overlooks the Biopolis – a research and development (R&D) hub dedicated to biomedical science
Life is all about making choices: Which path will you take?

Southern End of the park leads to Fusionopolis – a R&D hub for Infocomm Technology, Media, Physical Sciences & Engineering industries

(Reminds me of the Big Fish poster)
Does this remind you of Google?
It’s a pleasant surprise to find such a tranquil park nestled away from the hustle and bustle of Bouna Vista. It provides a alternative choice for the people working nearby to destress and recharge their mind.
