Mangrove walk

The weather nowdays is unpredictable. It’s rain in the morning, and super duper hot in the  afternoon.

I am prepared to get sunburnt today, since i am going to explore pasir ris park magrove in a damn hot weather today. Luckily the weather suddenly change to cloudy with no chance of rain. Yay!

As expected alot of mangrove here

Once we enter the mangrove walk. The surrounding make you feel peaceful. You can hear bird, grasshopper and all the other creatures they creates all the nature song. It’s so surreal.



We continue our journey to a deeper area inside the mangrove. And we found lotsa holes. All these piles of mud with holes is where the crabs lives 


Are you able to spot the crab? I am using my camera phone, so can’t really capture very sharp photo.

Out from the mangrove park we walk to the sea side. The weather is really nice today. We sit on the sea side for a while. Enjoying the sea breeze. I feel so peaceful here. My new fave place for stoning. Hahaha..


Besides bird watching, people watching, crab watching. Look what i found here! Orange lizard!


After almost 2 hour walk. We decided to end our exploration. But before that let’s take a selfie hahaha..


My face damn oily here. Coz eventho not so hot today, it’s still damn humid.

If you want to have a bit of exercise, enjoying sea breeze, learning about mangrove creatures, or simply just need a place to stoned. I recommend this park hahaha..

Mural art discovery

A month ago i sign up a meetup group that have lotsa activity on exploring places around singapore. 

To be honest eventho i have been living here for more than 5 years, i seldom explore this city. First reason coz of the weather it’s too hot to do all sort of outdoor activities. Second reason coz i prefer to be inside an aircon room hahaha.

But i really interested in this mural and heritage walk, so i built all my courage up to beat the heat that day.

So we start from little india and end our trip at lavender near kampong glam. 

I never expect to see lotsa beautiful mural art along the way, and to discover many interesting art at little india and kampong glam area.

Below are all the mural art that we found aroud kampong glam area.

This is one of my fave, looks like 3D photo taken from the top of the cafe. 

Below are some mural art that we discover along little india.

Another one of my fave mural art at little india. Hahahaha you can take funny pose with this boy.

Last but not least, this one is not a mural art but more on some deco outside the hotel.


Hahahhaha …  this dog pose is cute rite? 

If you really not afraid to get tanned  and have interest on mural art. Do try this out! It’s a fun walk and also burnt calories (5 km walk ).

To judge,or to be judge

I dunno why tonite i keep thinking of this quote:

Never judge a book by it’s cover

.

Couple days ago i started to download some dating app HAHAHAHA (don’t judge). Partially because i am bored and also coz my friends said i am not that young anymore. So yeah..finally i am into this virtual matchmaking,meet and greet session with strangers (lol).

When I start chatting with bunch of strangers, i realize there are some types of people.(based on the opening message to you)

1. a person that think status and wealth is damn important.And wanna know if you are in the same level as them, or maybe to make you think “wow a good catch”

2. a person that has no status or wealth.Usually won’t be very direct or boastful when talking to you.

3.a person that know exactly what he want and just be direct to you. take it or leave it kind.

Well i am not really sure if this virtual things will works.Coz knowing someone need some kinda process,not an instant judgement just within a few sentence. And i don’t think status and wealth alone is enuff for you to decide that he/she is the one.

I believed who you truly are as a person is way more important than anything else. 

Don’t trapped your mind into certain stereotypes that will blinded you into seeing good side of others.

Free and good really exist?

Chinese new year hip is over. Time passed damn fast, and i haven’t even plan my next trip. Actually i plan to go mellaca next week but guess what..my passport going to expired in june.zzzzz..

Well, since i can’t travel far i guess i should find other alternative like… a cheap or free city tour. 

Last year, i have tried one free city tour. To be honest i am just picked this up randomly, since it’s free and i got nothing todo i choose URA gallery tour and clan visit. 

Never set my expectation high, but overall i think it’s good lifetime experience. If you have some free time in Singapore with tight budget, you can consider this option hahahahha..

Stepping into URA gallery itself, i learn a lot of things about singapore. A lot of reclaimed land here tho hahaha.. i may visit this gallery on my own next time to slowly browse each section inside the gallery, as well as look closely into the 3D city model below


the guide said i can find my house printed inside the 3D model there.

After briefly browsed the URA Gallery,we hop into the bus (again it’s free!) for clans visiting. I am always happy when i hear something free tho hahaha..Hearing the word “clan” my impression is something like fist of fury movie kind of clan with lotsa kungfu disciples and their master, aka lotsa hunk men.hehehehe… Well, far from what i imagine, no hunk spotted (sad).

Inside the clan itself they have many activities such as wushu, lion dance group, they also have opera group. It’s a very oldies feeling inside the clan itself. the chairs is like the one i saw in kung fu master movie!

imagining myself as a lion dancer.(lol) way to go gurl..way to go…dream on!!


look at this old chairs. Feels like in wong fei hung era.

And these all their lion dance equipments. If you visit singapore during CNY, you might be able to see lion dance performance at taka or esplanade.

we are so lucky, we are able to see the rehearsal of their opera team.


And look what i found here !!!


Actually, i want to take photo with this pose so, i look like donnie yen in ip man movie, but i shy hahahhaa 

My new year resolutions this year is to travel more, try something new and be a better me compare to last year. Also to many more FOC city tour this year hahahahaha.. 

To travel or to escape?

Gosh it’s been a while since my latest post in March. Now,it’s already last month of 2016. I should start making my 2016 caleidoscope.

NAH!! I will save that for later.HAHAHAHA

Today, I will share my traveling stories. I went to two places this time. Well, I travel more than last year, I admit. But as a quote say:

“To awaken alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world.” – Freya Stark

i can’t agree more to this. Traveling  is an eye opener to your soul. It introduce you to a new culture, experience,knowledge,history and also adventures. HAHAHA..

in April this year I went to Korea, reason wise to see cherry blossoms. To be honest, this is my first time seeing it in real life,I have saw it many times on TV tho.

I must admit, it feels different when you are standing there and see those trees. I am amazed, when I saw flowers on a tree. AMAZING!

I can’t describe how magical it was, to sit under a cherry blossom tree when the wind blows. Pooff!! Mind blowing.

Here are some photos that I took. Amazing isn’t it?

The second trip I went to Bali. Yeah, I know you guys maybe have been there many times. But this is also again my virgin trip. Ok, don’t judge, I know this sounds weird,but you will want to go as far as possible first rather than to go to the nearer one first rite,no? Fine!

One thing that i remember the most about Bali was, the damn hot weather! Seriously it’s damn hot, hotter than Jakarta. Within 5min after I step out from the car, I will look like a person that just caught in a heavy rain!

This is also my first time sitting on a motorcycle for a long ride. Honestly, I can’t cycle, so yeah you know… first time you feel the real pain in da ass, get scolded coz I dunno where to put my feet properly HAHAHHAA. And of course the beautiful beaches

We went to devil tears, tambak rumput laut, and some other beaches. And also eat at one high class restaurant.

If you guys like sand, sea, sun,beaches. Looking at hot  babes in bikini while suntanning. Booked a flight to Bali now!!

By traveling i saw so many God amazing artwork.

Always remember this:

So, don’t you travel in expectation to escape from reality, but travel to enrich your soul.

 

 

 

 

Be Thankful

On my way home, i passed thru quite roads and alley. My mind start to ponder again about why i am here in this world, and i start remembering my ex-boss advise about a big rock in the middle of the road story.

 

Side track a bit, my ex-boss ever advise me this story when i am giving him my resignation letter, he said you should overcome that rock, not stop and turn back. I still remember i told him that i am not turning back, instead i am walk around it. (HAHAHAHA). Anyway, i am not sure why suddenly i remembered his words. And i start pondering about my life, things that i haven’t achieved, all the dreams, goals and may things that i haven’t achieved and keep counting until…

 

I saw this old woman pushing a cart, she is so old. From her appearance seems that she is not from middle class group of people, which has enough money to support herself. As i passed her, i ask myself this question “Have i ever been grateful enough on what i have now?”

 

Again, as i walk passed the bus stop near my house, i saw a couple quarreling. The woman shouted to the man “don’t ever you remember anything about me, my birthday, ANYTHING”. As i passed by them i was thinking “Maybe being single is not that bad after all, well at least you won’t have relationship issues” (well, of course for now :p).

 

And finally, in front of my block before i turn in to my apartment, i saw all these road workers, fixing the road and it’s already 7.30pm. They working hour sucks and work under the sun!! This make me ponder “i still have an office job, inside aircon room and maybe not really need to OT everyday”

 

Well, after all maybe i should be more grateful on what i have. Even if it’s not as what i dream or wish. And life is not all about hitting your target or achievement. Coz human will never be satisfied. After you achieved what is in your list, you will have another wishlist to achieve. Crazy rite?

 

If you live only to keep achieving, when can you find the true happiness? Be grateful of what you have, treasure what you already have and be proud of what you have been done.

 

So when you turn your head back to the past, you can smile and says “Thank you God for all of this, You have used me right”

 

 

 

 

Not meant to L.O.V.E

I doubt myself that i will ever know what love is, and i am preparing for it, the ugliest truth that i might need to face one day (sobs). Actually does this really bothers me? i am not sure now, what i always tell myself or any singles out there is to keep on praying, keep faith,keep your positive mind, be confident and love yourself.

 

Sometimes when i saw a man trying to get a stranger(girl) phone number, usually the woman is slim, pretty and sexy. Deep inside me, i am telling myself, this things won’t ever happen to you. Your not slim, pretty and sexy, no one will have any interest in you. Yeah i know right, very contradicting with what i just said just now. I don’t have positive mind, confident and i don’t think i love myself, in the other hand, i just being ignorance and acts really cool. People even thought that i don’t need love. (sobs again)

 

Well… end 2015 is an eye opener for me. Even i am still single now, but it makes me realize that all these years i am not really appreciate myself or even accept myself as what i am (which i always say i do). To be honest, i never expect a romantic K-drama scene might happen in real live, or a stranger will ask my phone number. But yeah it happens, and it happens twice. (hohoho).. And it even happen when i am just being me (sloppy hair, bermuda shorts, t-shirt, and sandals)

 

Thanks God. You send that two strangers, even maybe they are not the one. But, thru them You have slapped me hard and taught me to be confident, happy and love myself more.

When you are able to love yourself, you will open doors of opportunities to love and to be loved.
