I like the work of National Parks Board (NParks) in Singapore.
They have been creating or building new parks everywhere.
I like this new open-air amphitheatre. It looks so pleasant and yet artistic.
I am not the only curious one. Look, someone's trying to peep inside!
You can read more about this park and the design behind it at:

Suddenly yesterday evening, the haze 'attacked' Singapore.
This was view of Bukit Timah (Hill) last night.
Slightly 'hazy' view of the hill because of the haze.
It's good that by Saturday morning (this morning), it's not so hazy anymore...

Saw a lot of bottles on the ground after a recent 'party' nearby.
I was a bit naughty and wanted to roll a ball or something towards it.
They look like an overcrowded set of bowling pins.
No, I was do it, the mess would be disastrous!
Have you ever wondered why wines cost so much in Singapore?
Well, there is a excise duty of $70 per litre of alcohol.
So say, you buy a 750ml bottle of wine with an alcohol content of 13.5%, you will pay $7.09.
Don't forget you still need to pay 7% GST on whatever amount the wine costs.

Everyone's tired. I am feeling very tired these few weeks, are you?
Just find a piece of cupboard and a water bottle as a pillow, you got yourself a temporary bed!
How many hours do you sleep a day?
Do you sleep in total darkness or with a night light on?
I took this photo around 1 week ago, when I was rushing to work.
Since I am rushing, so I just quickly took a snap of it and it seems over exposed.
It's still early, so the cleaners have not swept the streets yet. I saw white-pinkish flowers all over! It looks so beautiful!
The tree was covered with the flower and the flowers have been dropping slowly to the ground. It's raining flowers! The place was so beautiful!

There's a curious streak in us all! After attending the PAP rally, we were curious to find out what the opposition rally is like. We heard it's more enthusiastic and interesting. People are more proactive and there are more cheers!
The way they draw the electoral boundaries in Singapore is so 'weird'. Holland Village is not in the Holland Bukit Timah GRC. On the same road, you get a few constituencies!
We went to the nearest opposition rally where we were. We were at Clementi Ave 4 for the PAP rally for the Holland Bukit Timah GRC, just nearby at Clementi Stadium is where the West Coast GRC's rally is at.
We went right to the front to listen and to take photos!
Indeed, the people here are more enthusiastic!
When the MC shouted "Reform Party", the crowd cheered "We want change".
The rally at Clementi stadium was clean with no muddy fields and there's lots of seats too!
Tonight's the last night for the rallies, if you are interested, you better hurry!
Go to the Election website and search for the rally nearest to you. ;-)

It's a rare thing that anyone gets to attend election rallies in Singapore!
It's the first time in many years that the opposition are standing in for all except one constituency.
Momo and I decided to listen to what the candidates of PAP who will be contesting in our constituency.
The one we attended tonight was at the open field in Clementi Ave 4.
Despite having soggy field, many turned up to listen.
Momo and I had super muddy shoes when we left!
There are 4 candidates in the Holland - Bukit Timah GRC, but one of the candidates seems to have great support! One of the many placards/signs that supporters made for Sim Ann.
You can watch the speeches on YouTube, but if you are in Singapore, you should go for at least one rally. It's kind of interesting!

This void deck has been gazetted as a polling station on 7 May 2011.
There are many places where citizens of Singapore will be voting.
Some will be voting at void decks (if you are wondering what that is, it's the ground floor of the government housing blocks), some are at schools, etc.
I saw this notice at one of the void decks, but it's not where I am staying.
