I’m pretty free today after an event ended surprising early. So crazily, I decided to cycle from my home in Sengkang to Serangoon Reservoir, under the hot afternoon sun at 1pm.
Along the way, there are interesting things to see though 🙂
Oh, Ang Mo Kio is just 6km away.
Near Sungei Pinang foobridge, beside Buangkok East Drive to KPE.

Then I pass under TPE
I can see Lorong Halus Wetland in the distance
The ‘famous’ bridge in Lorong Halus Wetland
After passing the Sunrise Bridge, I can see Serangoon East Dam in the distance
Some nice looking resting point with good vantage point of the dam
Before heading home, let me see how far I had cycled.
Not too bad, more than 10km I think.
I was early for an appointment, so decided to visit the Lower Peirce Reservoir Park.
It was originally named Kallang River Reservoir.
But changed to Lower Peirce Reservoir in 1922 to commemorate the services of Municipal Engineer, Robert Peirce.
The view of the reservoir was very good this morning, without much breeze to disturb the tranquility of the water.

Anyway, I love the peace here, especially on a weekday morning and will be back again.. one day.
When my wife told she see saw quite a few Lego F1 cars in Raffles city, I thought one of the ‘life size’ Lego F1 car I saw at a Shell petrol station was there. But when we reach Raffles city with our kids, I was staring at really small but cute F1 Lego cars. Till now, I still have no idea where the life size Lego car went.
The one I saw at the petrol station was a much much bigger version of this, life size, I think.
There are even smaller Lego cars on display. These can be bought from Shell petrol stations at a small price when one pumps petrol there.
I love food photography and find À la carte buffet’s setting the best for this purpose. This time, my friend and I came to Seafood International Market & Restaurant at East Coast Park (former Big Splash) not just for food, but to really capture some food pixels.
Despite its slogan, “if it swims, we have it”, not everything they had is on the buffet menu.
Dessert and soup station
Some wine to go along with our meal if we want, at extra cost of course :p
Without further ado, let the buffet begin!
I love lobster!
When we had enough, we went for the desserts.
I think most probably I busted my annual cholesterol limit in one day and have to go simple for the rest of the year 🙂 Anyway, the food is really good and definitely be back again with my family, just for the food.
This is my first time to visit a Mosque and at first I thought I can only take pictures from outside.
This shot have to be taken from the road, a risk every photographer has to take in order to get this composition… crazy photographers.
but happy to know visitors can actually go in to take pictures.

Before leaving, I have some coconut juice to quench my thirst.
The vendor was a very friendly guy, he even offered to take pictures for me chopping the coconuts in his place 🙂
This is another black and white representation… just cant’ have enough of the great architecture.
After having a good time last year, we are back for more lanterns at the Gardens by the Bay. I felt the lanterns are just as nice, if not nicer than 2013. I don’t know if there are more this year, but definitely spread over a much larger area and after seeing them, I felt more exhausted 🙂
Besides typical lanterns, there are winning entries of Creative Lantern-Making Competition on display and I particularly like this Spiderman and Giant Pandas.
And the skybridge from Marina Bay Sands to the Garden by the Bay is also decorated.
But of course, my favorites are still the lanterns.
There are also some lanterns in the water, but they look nicer in reality than these pictures that I took.
So bye bye lanterns, I’ll be back again in 2015. Keep up the good work!
I seldom take Indian food besides Roti Prata or biryani. So when I had a chance for some North Indian Crusine at Rangooli at South Buona Vista Road, I happily went to have a try.
Overall, I find the food nice and not too spicy (so true blue Indians for authentic spiciness might need to ask for more!)
