22 Apr 2010 – Yesterday, Interesting Hump-Day!

Wed on the MRT, an unusual sight with someone dressed in a kilt. Asked for permission to take his picture and we exchanged cards, only to realize later that Matthew was on his way to the Food Asia Expo, Stewart’s Whisky… cheers and good luck. Must try to go before it is over on Fri. Asked about his tartan and was told that it is Dress Stewart. During my Dublin boarding school days, tartan skirts were my favourite skirts to wear. These patterns consisting of criss-cross horizontal and vertical bands in multiple colours and originated in woven cloth, but now they are used in other materials. Tartan is associated with Scotland and Scottish kilts almost always have tartan patterns. It was not until the mid-nineteenth century that specific tartans became associated with Scottish clans.

MRT to Pasir Ris (posting 30 Apr 2009)@Aloha Loyang Resort to spent some time with HimSuan & family who are here from Goa for their yearly visit. Being unfamiliar in that area, I decided to walk from the Bus/MRT Interchange to the resort. It was hot but the fear to taking a taxi is even hotter! How fast Michael & Rachel have grown but that is the usual case when you see them only once a year. They have strong feet to be able to walk with us from one end of the park to the other and back again. A certain area in this park reminds me of Shakib Gunn where we held a memorial kite-flying day. Thanks to Jane and Doris who brought dinner over.
