Too Beautiful A Morning

After an exhausting week at work and a weekday holiday to boot, we went on one of two adventures before the holy month of Ramadhan arrives, where my wife and I will be fasting from sunrise till sunset everyday for 28 days.

The skies that greeted us in the morning. It was a glorious sight, too beautiful not to be out and about.

The plan was to go on a 13-plus km trip on one of the paths I explored some time back. But we detoured to a nearby eatery for sustenance as we realised halfway into the ride, we had not eaten anything and my wife was getting the hunger pangs.

Enroute to the eatery, we saw a new piece of land cleared for the construction of houses. What used to be here were acres of greenery and from this perspective, we couls not even see the blocks of flats in the background in the past. Can’t help but felt a tinge of sadness.

The Bs by the side while we were having our breakfast.

After breakfast, we abandoned the original plan and headed for the nearby beach.

Stopped by to see any new developments to this place. Doesn’t look like.

We reached the beach at around 9-plus and soon the morning was turning out beautifully.

Along the way home, saw a spot of light from the Sun and couldn’t resist placing my Rasta B there for an image opportunity. It’s as if a spotlight was shining down and highlighting it.

Wonder what my wife was looking at? After this image, I saw what caught her attention, a monkey up in the trees.

One final pitstop for drinks before calling it a day. The next day will be another adventure.

Potentially the Longest Ride

I have always wanted to ride from the eastern end to the southern tip of the island, which spans around 21km one way. Finally after many months,  I had the opportunity to do so.

Not too many images from this ride as we were unsure of the route and were busy making detours after detours.

image

Finally reached Gardens By The Bay East, the eastern part of the gardens. Posed by the river leading out to the sea, with our target end point in the background too. The haze has not disappeared totally, as we can see in the background, and on this day, the PSI reading was between 70 to 80. No biggie.

Was turned away shortly after this image was taken as there was a family day happening further ahead and the crowd was swelling by the seconds. Told ourselves we will be back to complete the whole route again.

On the way back to the starting point, Missus saw the potential of an image and got us both stopped to take this.

Till the next time we are here.
