16 Jul 2017 – To Yong Siak Street
Wed: catching up with more paper-work and as usual, snoozing away away where paper-work is concerned 🙂 Also restoring some energy for another busy weekend ahead.
Thu: window grocery shopping@Isetan, such a feast to the eyes but only affordable for very special occasions, ie Christmas or a special Bday!
Noticed there seems to be another arm in this reflection image! Rather disturbed and quite puzzled by it, but was explained by Leo that reflection from another angle with glass which is multi layered so you might see the image reflected at a different angle. Interesting, now can try different angles of reflection to give different effects.
Movies at any of the Shaw cinemas cost S$4 for seniors compared to the other cinemas S$4.50. A dark romance movie – My Cousin Rachel***a young Englishman who plots revenge against his mysterious, beautiful cousin, believing that she murdered his guardian. When he meets Rachel for the first time, his mood suddenly changes as he finds himself falling for her. Based on a novel by Daphne du Maurier whose writings I enjoy.
If we killed women for their tongues all men would be murderers ― Daphne du Maurier,
Fri: TGIF and a good weekend to all – Happy Bastille Day Lynda, Jean-Baptiste, Marianne/Keith, Liz and to all celebrating. Happy Bday to Keith. Downloaded this fantastic shot under the Arc de Triomphe de l’Étoile – pix credits? Has it really been 5yrs ago since my last trip to France??
Lunched with PT&Pat@New Green Pasture Cafe****in Fortune Centre, one of my favourite Vegan Restaurant, tkx to PT.
Welcome cousin Wilki&Patti from HI who are staying in the Citadines Serviced Apts conveniently located behind Wilki Edge on Selegie Road. Nice catching up with Daisy too@Waterloo St Food Centre.
Sat: tkx to Clem for lunch@The Terminal Cafe Lounge**** (Airbus Asia Training Centre).
Excellent Truffle Risotto with Mushroom and Arancini Rice Ball in good company of Betty, Aud and Clem.
Wheeler’s Estate located at the Oval@Seletar Aerospace Park is an old world charm, sited next to Seletar Airport. Once upon a time, the many black and white colonial bungalows served as residences for RAFofficers, but are now converted into lifestyle businesses, including restaurants and cafés. Enjoy exploring new places, tkx to Aud for driving.
Yong Siak Street@Tiong Bahru – this 1950s residential neighbourhood is now a trendy hot spot with a batch of independent coffee houses, retail shops like BooksActually.
Continuing to SengPoh Gardens where the Dancing Girl sculpture by LIM NangSeng (1916-1987, also the same sculptor for the Merlion) is located. Learning all this today just from taking a slow stroll to catch the bus! Life is amazing when you can keep learning with an open mind and heart.
Sun: appreciations to Alvin Mark Tan for his La Kopi – still working hard at learning how to order coffee at any local koptiam 🙂
