9 Feb 2022: Or Gluttony???
Sun: 6thCNY-day, appreciations 18thUncleTL&Auntie+cousinSara for lunch (seafood soupS$12.50) in the Woodlands area,
a new territory for me to explore walking on well-maintained paved walkways on this cool lovely wet day between MarsilingMall and
CausewayPoint passing by this beautiful pefectly-shaped tree.
WoodsSquare – completely new to me, 1st time seeing&being in this building,
with trendy tipsy joints – hahaha. Today concludes the CNY-visits with the BlueGeneration.
Mon: 7thCNY-day人日JanJat=human day was the day human beings were created and viewed as the common birthday of all human beings. Happy Birthday to ALL on this nice cool day.
3Nov2021: Helen&I were caught in action by SG FoodBuzz 0:33, a video by Hawker Foods in Singapore 20mit8Spnsmago1145eh1d7 This stall allows you to customise your own version of chee cheong fun! CCF here is highly recommended – 0530hrs Bfast this morning before walking EC Pk.
Lunched with Clement@GoldenMileFoodCentre – MincedMeatNoodles/ShenBakmie, BabiTulangBuak Keluak/Charlie’s, TruffleFries&Coleslaw/Ashes. Being人日had to have a taste of one! TangYuan/75 AhBallingTangYuan. Does Gastronome defines a person who enjoys food for pleasure???
Ongoing action@TheVadaiShop where SPH was filming there – quite a bunch of crew+equipments and again like last week’s bus action, do not have a clue if this is for a commercial or movie??
Another nice cool walk with Clement (he is the only one in my SIN-family who enjoys exploring&walking like I do) in this area/pix downloaded – along RochorRiver-CrawfordSt/NBridgeRd-crossing MerdekaBridge-NicollHighway–WaterwaysWatchSociety a detour-round-about to bus-stop80211 opp NationalStadium. Memories from this bus-stop 10yrs ago – due to a few hiccups, the initial planned completion date of 2011 for the SIN SportsHub has come and gone. However, after construction finally got underway in 2011, the 35hectare sports complex is on track to open its doors in 2014 – https://amylamsg.com/2014/07/30/worlds-largest/

Gastronome or Gluttony?? Gastronome when savouring and enjoying every bite, but Gluttony when eating well past the point where hunger is satisfied – we all need to be aware and to be honest with ourselves to find the balance in our world of overindulgence!
