28 Feb 2023 – Searching For Air Fares
Sat: catching up with new movie – The Whale, a reclusive, morbidly obese English teacher attempts to reconnect with his estranged teenage daughter. Because of his character’s severe weight, BrendanFraser had on a heavy prosthetic suit for the role and he did a good job = pix downlowded.
Sun: proud of grandnephew Ike in Chicago,IL/USA who will be climbing the stairs of an iconic Chicago skyscraper today. Pix credits to niece Dika. Please see his message below –
Hey, everyone! I’m Isaac Borowsky.
On February 26, as part of the Hustle Chicago stair climb for charity, I’ll be walking up 94 stories and 1,632 steps of the John Hancock Center. Now known as 875 North Michigan, the 1,128-foot-tall Hancock was the second tallest skyscraper in the world when it was built in 1969. Hustle Chicago is organized by the Respiratory Health Association and is dedicated to fighting lung disease.
Lung illness has personally affected my family in a lot of ways. My paternal grandfather died of a lung condition, and my mother, great-aunt, maternal grandfather and I all have asthma. Fighting lung disease is a cause I’m very much connected to, and I’m proud to be doing something about it, even in just my own little way. So to honor that cause, I’ll be climbing
Way to go, Ike who climbed 94-floors in 24mins15secs(23rd in the 12-18age-group).
Fond memory of 1stBorn climbing the 35-floors SunTrustCenter,Orlando.FL in her High-School days – pix downloaded.
A nice quiet weekend to give the body a rest and let the mind reflect before the short month of Feb is over. Reflecting on actions,thoughts,words,etc hoping to gain more perspectives. While I have been busy catching up with new movies, the younger generations do us proud by living an active constructive life with niece back to doing her duties by saving life at the hospital in snowy BC,Canada.

Mon: breakfast@MT-Hawkers for my congeeS$5 and coffeeS$1.50
Tue: air fares from CAE-OSL-CAE(S$1,724.33/RT) are more expensive than SIN-CAE-SIN! Need to figure out if&how I can find lower fares, since I have the time for the bus or train to NY depending on how much I might be able to save and if my energy level will be up to that kind of travel??
Has it really been a decade ago that the new playground was completed but traffic lights are being installed at the junction of MarineCres&Terr. Amazingly its still the same view 10yrs down the road, except that it is rainy today and the time for the traffic lights now take a longer time to change, probably due to the school hours traffic-jams.
