5 Mar 2017 – Tale As Old As Time
Fri: TGIF, enjoying Fri by starting the day at 0530hrs@MT-WetMarket with shopping for fresh produce for the week (S$10). Done organizing by 0800hrs and there will be purple sweet potatoes, pumpkin-soup, lemon-grass&rosella-tea, etc.
An egg a day I can handle, but the local-brewed coffee, as good as it is will keep me hyper for the rest of the weekend, thus only Fri 🙂
Sat: Beauty and the Beast****Disney’s animated classic takes on a new form, with a widened mythology and an all-star cast. A young prince, imprisoned in the form of a beast, can be freed only by true love. What may be his only opportunity arrives when he meets Belle, the only human girl to ever visit the castle since it was enchanted – IMDb
Tkx Daisy for the premier of this movie. Family fun times with niece Judy and grand-nephews Stanley&Andrew.
The best quote from the voice of Emma Thompson/2017, Angela Lansbury/1991. The animated 1991 Beauty and the Beast, became the very first full-length animated feature film in cinema history to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture and the song won Oscar for the Best Music, Original Song then.
Another of my favourite F-words – fairy-tales 🙂 But the reality was just a simple dinner using my 10% discount card@KopitiamPlazaSIN 🙂 🙂 🙂
Sun: Happy Bday Gel and tkx for being such a sport for wanting to do this early morning 10K walk with me. 0545hrs walked to the Octopus by ParkwayParade to meet Gel connecting via the underpass to Parkway/EC Pk. Beautiful faun&flora on the way.
to Gardens by the Bay East, also known as Bay East Garden. Dragon Boats practicing on the Kallang River are a common sight on Sundays. There are quite abit of mushrooms due to the daily rains.
up the stairs (looks like they will start sealing that off soon, probably the last time on it 😦 ) to Benjamin Sheares Bridge
SIN Flyer to discover that only 2stalls were opened@SIN Food Treats, but there is a lovely stone bench there that I would very much like to have! Bought back childhood memories of our garden where we used to have 3-4 of these including a stone-round-table with 4stone-stools@5TemenggongRd. Decided not to wait for these stalls to open but to walk on to
Toast-box@Esplanade for breakfast. Glad about it – saw one of these light installations for the iLight Marina Bay in daylight and would not have thought it was made-up of umbrellas only!
A walk down memory lane up YanKitRd. Last time here was in 2008 for the opening of the Yoga Shala School. The swimming pools were without water and the diving board were still in tact then!
Today the pools&diving-boards are non-existence but the entrance building has been renovated, and thank goodness keeping to the original design.
Appreciation to niece Daisy for the invite to an informative Mindfulness afternoon with Joanne Chua.
For many in our SIN lifestyle, it would be beneficial to have some awareness and knowledge about Meditation&Mindfulness to cope with this stressful lifestyle here!
