Always a Pleasure

16 Nov 2013 – to show off SIN good sides!


Mon: why does everything has to happen at the same time? Apt under touch-up paint work, window grills and door gate at workshop and now done. A quick trip to Giant at Vivo City to get a step-ladder and small trolley and was rewarded with a beautiful sunset towards Sentosa and the cable cars.


Tue: annual visit to the temple at Waterloo St with Ivy’s mother and the help of Miela. This time round was just a quick visit and did get the chance to have lunch or shop. The threatening grey rumbling sky was just not the best day to be out.

Wed: more work done to the apt and had to leave the door and windows open due to new paint. Thank goodness the weather is not too bad but would have preferred the AC!


Thu: welcome May&Lock to SIN! Looking forward to showing Lock that his birth country is not what it was since he left in the early 1960s!! And yeah to the Kinetic Rain sculpture which is back in motion at T1 — at Changi Airport.


Tkx to Les&Ivy for delicious dinner at Dempsey Hill’s LongBeach Seafood****

Fri: received news of Pat Chee’s father’s passing.


Tourist guiding May&Lock  by bus to SIN River as they needed to settle their account at UOB. Was not aware that pix were not allowed in the bank. Anyway the lights there are quite amazing and difficult to resist the temptation to not take a pix 🙂

Tkx Chesper for bringing back my pair Chaco from the US and tkx Larry for receiving them. Now I can walk in comfort. Bought a new pair when in the US but that was destroyed in the fire! Anyone who has owned a pair of Chaco sandals also know that they are strong, lasting and good for the feet. Have done much of my long distance hiking in them when weather permits.


Lunch at Blanco Court Prawn Mee, Haji Lane, Kampong Glam and Parkview Square with a bottle of wine at Divine Wine Bar. Many of the places mentioned are in past postings.
