Share Your World: a Singaporean Nightscape

The Marina Bay area is stunning at night.  Loving Husband and I had a stroll on the promenade on Saturday while waiting for Darling Daughters who were at the Esplanade: Theatres by the Bay, watching the Stuttgart Ballet’s Romeo & Juliet.  It was a balmy evening, rather festive with cyclists, pedestrians & live music from an al fresco cafe, enlivening our walk.

In the spirit of further sharing my world, here are this week’s questions & my answers to Cee’s Share Your World .

What do you consider is the most perfect food for you? (It can be your favorite food to something extremely healthy.)

I think the perfect food is the one I am enjoying at any point in time, whether it is a hearty bowl of steel cut oats laden with fruit, or a decadent croissant, buttery, flakey yet chewy, or a mess of colourful stir-fried vegetables, or a scoop of the creamiest ice cream chock full of nuts & dried fruit & marshmallows & assorted goodies. I endeavour to enjoy every mouthful!  I try not to eat when I’m rushed, or to feel guilty when I’m eating potato chips.


Are you focused on today or tomorrow?

I’m better at living in the moment these days, so my answer is Today.

If you could interview one of your great-great-great grandparents, who would it be, and what would you ask?

I’ve never had adult conversations with any of my grandparents.  I would love to speak with each of them and get to know them.

What did you appreciate this past week?  

I had a good writing week, and several interesting conversations with WordPress Friends.  I feel invigorated and inspired.

Share Your World: Inspired by Nature

Many of us find inspiration in Nature.

Singapore may be a city, but there are many wonderfully green places for pedestrians to wander about, mull over life’s mysteries and be inspired.  I love exploring the Park Connector network when I have the chance; these dedicated walkways/cycle paths run between parks to allow one to park hop,  providing safe passage for pedestrians & cyclists.  The Alexander Canal Linear Park is a beautiful and particularly lovely example, running alongside several housing developments.

Share Your World: Inside Out, Outside In

Inside Out: This is what you will see when you look out my kitchen window: a small portion of the Singapore Botanic Gardens.

Outside In: Cee’s Share Your World is a window I enjoy looking through into the worlds of some of the WordPress community.  Cee posts a new set of questions every Monday.  Follow the above link for instructions if you would like to join in.

100% Chocolate

Loving Husband & Older Daughter love dark chocolate, even the very bitter 100%. Younger Daughter and I prefer ours much sweeter and perhaps, milkier.

In considering where bitter fits in my life, I think our taste buds have it right: sweet, salty, sour, bitter, and for the new gourmand, umami.  It all contributes to our experience of food, and in a larger sense, of the world around us.  It is about finding the right balance, the right combination, the right amount.

Bangkok’s Night Sky

Travelling is …

… family time

… new sights, sounds and smells

… the people

… the food

… a whole new world!

Sisters, Sisters

Nothing gives a sense of security like sisters ….

This snapshot makes me smile, just like this song does.
