14 May 2014 – And Kallang Estate


IMG_3119BuddhaTreeTue: Happy Vesak Day to those celebrating. Up bright and early 0400hrs, but considering that I was in la-la-land before 21.00hrs giving me 7hrs in dreamland is getting back towards SIN time 🙂

After breakfast and marketing in Marine Terrace decided to explore the Kallang area which is app 10mins ride when one is on the bus at 0600hrs on this public holiday. Lighting was just beautiful and perfect for pix. Feel enlightened and energised 🙂 🙂


Kallang is an urban planning area and a subdivision located in the southeastern part of SIN. Best known for being the location of the SIN Indoor Stadium & the old National Stadium as well as the new SIN Sports Hub. It is also where SIN first airport was located.


Also this is the area where the family’s favourite homemade pau are found! Somehow and someway food always find a place no matter where or what…


And here is more food again, appreciations to Robert for sharing this graph, rather interesting to associate Nobel Prize with chocolate. Maybe another coincidence that those are also some of the happiest countries to be living in!! CHOCOATE=Nobel Prize and Happy 🙂 🙂 🙂


Switzerland is a place where they don’t like to fight, so they get people to do their fighting for them while they ski and eat chocolate – Larry David

Edited 15 May 2014: negative vibes that are there but have kept it to the minimum and to a balance, but lately they seemed to be unbalance…

Since the missing of MH730, there has been news of other tragic situations like the sinking of the Korean ferry, the schoolgirls kidnapped in Nigeria, countries like Syria, Ukraine, Thailand, Vietnam, China are at turmoil, and now the mine blast in Turkey killing many.

Global warming with drastic climate changes resulting to natural disasters adding to more loss of life. Unfortunately it is not going to be better.

The latest is the MERS – Middle East Respiratory Syndrome is a viral respiratory illness. MERS is caused by a coronavirus  called ‘Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus’ (MERS-CoV). It was first reported in 2012 in Saudi Arabia and today it has spread to 18 countries.

Most people who got infected with MERS-CoV developed severe acute respiratory illness with symptoms of fever, cough, and shortness of breath. 30% of them died. It is highly contagious and spreading fast and so far no cure has yet been discovered.

The link below is EXTREMELY disturbing and sad. To quote SIN founding father LKY: ‘I wouldn’t call myself an atheist. I neither deny nor accept that there is a God. So I do not laugh at people who believe in God. But I do not necessarily believe in God — nor deny that there could be one.’

That is one of the reasons I choose to be in places like SIN, USA or Norway where one is able to hopefully respect, and the freedom to choose to practise different religions and life-styles.

2014 so far has been rather turbulence including personal health issues but yes we all have to just move ahead with our own life’s journey in our own ways as best as we know how. All the recent sightings of snakes give me creeping and crawling vibes and somehow not a good feeling. But this too shall past…

EAT MORE CHOCOLATE and visit NORWAY more often…
