Flying a Kite


9 Mar 2009 – Happy Bday Sue Lynn

Quite a delightful experience yesterday at Pasir Ris Park with flying a kite, a tribute to Shakib Gunn. The last time I flew a kite was in in the 1950s, when we made our own kites of bamboo and paper. Today, the kites are more sturdy but it was just as uplifting to feel the sensation of the wind pushing the kite way up in the sky, so peaceful and serene. I am a thousand winds that blow. Will sway along with the winds until when I am the swift uplifting rush.

Much obliged to the SIN Kite Association for the loan of a kite and to Balakrishnan for including me to SG’s tribute. Would like fly a kite occasionally, but will do so either early in the morning or before sunset. Yesterday was too hot and humid and there were too many trees and other kites for my kind of flying! Will start looking for a place to fly and will shop around for a kite.

Completed the day with a family dinner at my nephew’s, Vincent & his family. My sister-in-law, Poh Kit made homemade almond paste, one of my favourites. She has thoroughly spoiled us with the best almond paste.
