A beautiful pattern of cloud

Sometimes it is nice to capture the sky. You can see the different patterns of the clouds. If you looked at the first photo, you might think it would be raining but looked at the below photo.

It was actually sun setting. Night is falling. My apartment has great view of sunsetting but I dont have a sea view...hahaha. I would really love to have a sea view apartment but then it would be very costly.

This is the first time I managed to take a close up shot of a bee. It was the one and only shot of the bee sucking pollen from the
I was more afraid of the bee stinging me.

Temple door handle.

I saw this beautiful door handle on the front door of a temple in chinatown door. It looked so lovely.

Lions and dragons have been an important symbol for most cultures.

The ring in the mouth of the lion is for hitting on the door to let the owner know someone is at the door.

Horses in Motion

Ten life-sized hand-painted horses custom made in USA, was specially commissioned by the Singapore Turf Club to kick-start this year’s Singapore International Racing Festival, Singapore’s biggest racing extravaganza of the year.

The horses were displayed at Plaza Singapura. But I only found two of them, the rest were displayed at other shopping malls. For more information, you can read about them in Singapore Turb Club website.

The horses were huge and looked just like the real horses except that they are very colourful. :)

It was one of the early mornings that I was looking out of the window, as a worried mom, wondering why my son is still not back from his outings.

The streets were so quiet and then I saw this huge moon looking at me as if to tell me, dont worry your son is fine. :)

It really was huge so I grabbed my camera and zoomed on the moon and I swear I think I could see the surface of the moon...hahaha.

You can click the photo to enlarge and let me know if you think you could see the moon surface too or was it my imagination...hehehe

Signs at East Coast Beach

Still about East Coast Park, for those who are afraid of the cable ski (in my earlier post ), there are more ways to enjoy the park.

You can walk and admired the surrounding scenery and the beautiful trees in the park.

If you do not like to walk then you can jog.

Not like walking or jogging, then go for the roller skating or roller blading.

I choose the cycling, my favourite past time at East Coast Beach. :)
All the above signs are painted on the pathways in East Coast Park. There are different paths for cyclists and pedestrians so that cyclists wont knock down pedestrians as the crowds can be heavy during weekend.

SKI360° in East Coast Park

This is Singapore’s first cable ski facility, SKI360°, in East Coast Park.

The rider would waited for a rope to taut and drag him across the sea.
When he fall, he had to grab his board and walked back to the starting point and started all over again.

Sculpture at Esplanade Mall

Here is another sculpture found at Esplanade Mall.

I cant figure out what it is. Is it a star fruit or water melon or cactus? I guess that is what Art is all about. You are supposed to guess or ponder or

This is one of the few sculptures found in Raffles Place.

I guess the boat symbolises the earlier lifestyles of our forefathers who came from other parts of the world and survival in the small boat to come to Singapore to earn a living.
The above sculptures depicted the way of life during the early Singapore in Raffles Places where antique cars and horses drawn carts were the mode of transport.

Singapore has progressed and advanced to be a modern, branded and wealthy country. That is what the title of the sculpture is about.

Singapore River

Singapore River has a very rich history. It used to be the river mouth for trade activities. Many bum boats will carry goods from bigger ships in the sea to this river. Here the coolies/workers (see earlier post) will carry the goods from the bum boats to the warehouse, etc.
The river used to be dirty and smelly cause of the congestion of boats but since the big clean up in 1977, the river is so much cleaner and not smelly anymore. It is a beautiful view to look with all the tall buildings beside the river. For more information of Singapore River, you can view them here.

Answer to Quiz No. 2


This is the answer to the quiz on the buddha in Dongwasha Temple in South Korea.

The red circle on the buddha is bee hive.

As told by our korean guide that he asked the monks in the temple regarding the red circle and was told it was bee hive and not bird nest. (It was a neat nest and not untidy so could not be bird nest.) Those who guess it was bird nest, you are very close to the answer, well done.

No one guess it correct.

I also thought it was some kind of CCTV.

The day the parakeet decided to escape

These photos belong to my best friend, Diana and she is so nice to allowed me to put in my blog. Her son took these photos when he found a stray birdie in his study room. I think the photos make an interesting story to tell.

I think birds like to be free in the sky.

So this little parakeet (hope I am right about the species) decided to escape from its owner. Well done, birdie.

I guess birdie decided to check Diana's son's homework.

Here's looking at the photographer and posing for him.

Now to check Diana's son's calender for his daily activities listed there...hehehe

Thanks Diana for the photos, I enjoyed them very much.

This is a 33 metre Buddha Statue in Dongwasha Temple in Daegu,South Korea. It was raining that day and the whole place was so cold and misty. It made the whole atmosphere quite eerie. The buddha looked like it was crying because of the rainfall. I was so cold while trying to take a snapshot of the buddha and my hands felt so icy cold.

I have a little quiz for you folks. Look at the round circle on the buddha. Can you guess what that object under the buddha's left hand is? (Click on the photo to enlarge.) The quiz was asked by the korean tour guide for us to guess but none of us got it correct. So I now set this quiz to my fellow bloggers and see who can guess it right. Sorry no prize for the correct answer, this is just for fun.
This is an enlarged version. Try to guess what that round thing under the left hand is.
ANSWER will be revealed on sunday. Have fun.

Anderson Bridge

Day view of Anderson Bridge

Night View of Anderson Bridge taken from another direction.

Anderson bridge was opened in 1910. It was named after Sir John Anderson, the governor of the Straits Settlement from 1904-1911.

It comprises three steel arches with supporting steel ribs extending across them, two rusticate archways and a fluted pier at each end.

Anderson bridge is a typical 3-hinged arch bridge. The arches use a curved structure which provides a high resistance to bending force.

Today, Anderson Bridge continues to serve as a carriageway for the many vehicles travelling between Connaught Drive and Shenton Way(Source:
