A photo a week: Week 12

The window display in this clothing store located at Sydney@Australia is too colourful to be missed. The richness in colours, and the plushness of the soft toys just add a certain depth and dimension to the picture. Plus the lighting helps too!

A photo a week: Week 11

When the time is right, I do love the occasional excitement that such joy rides have to offer, and this 'space jump' ride at Genting Highlands is no different. I guess it is a natural human tendency to want to be challenged, and to feel that occasional adrenaline rush. And i guess I am not much different in that department either.

A photo a week: Week 10

This young shot jutting out from the concrete crevices, I thought, should aptly capture the spirit that the youth of today should adopt. Green and young, but full of vigour and hungry for success, even in the dire of circumstances, i do hope that this picture  encapsulates what youth should mean to the young, and the not-so-young amongst us! That life is challenging...yes. But it shouldn't stop you from wriggling your way through those 'cracks' of life, and seize the opportunity when the time comes.

A photo a week: Week 9

Before the only railway station serving the northerly route ends her operations next year, I felt that it is apt for me to revisit the station for one last look. I could vividly remember the last and only time I was here, way back in the mid-80's, lugging my luggage, as my dad and myself made our way amongst the many people heading in the same direction. What I remembered most were the peddlers coming up on board the various carriages to sell their wares, mostly food, to the passengers, at each and every stop. And I could still recall how in one short experience I had then, somehow turned me off to the idea of eating a corn-on-the-cob. Only until recently, I could never understand how one can derive enough pleasure to enjoy a decent corn-on-the-cob. The other thing that I could still recollect were the wide open expanse of space that the northerly route offers...the large rubber, oil palm and pineapple plantations...stretching into the horizon, and the kampung houses...who can forget them! Perhaps these are the views reminiscent of Singapore in her early days. Oh how I miss those sights, sound...and smell!

It has been a long while since..but I guess some memories are just there to stay.
