Durian Shop in Singapore

Durian can be easily seen in Southeast Asian countries like Singapore.

Of course, because of its nasty smell, many people from other region wouldn’t want to try so-called “King of fruits”

It took more than two years for me to accept its existence, now it has become one of my favourite fruits.

You can see many Durian stores when you pass the street.

 

There are two ways to buy Durian.

One is just to choose among those flesh of fruits without peels and wrapped in containers, and the other is to pick a full-bodied and peel it off and put it in a container on the spot.

There are advantages and disadvantages to both, there is a drawback in that it is not so fresh when it is already peeled off, although there is an advantage that it is possible to purchase them by seeing the condition of its flesh.

On the other hand, it is the best in terms of freshness when buying the whole and removing its peels on the spot, however it has a disadvantage that we never know whether it is tasty or not until we actually take its clothes off.

Choa Chu Kang Cemetery, Singapore

CCK Cemetery, located in the Choa Chu Kang district of western Singapore.

At the entrance there is a guide sign indicating Track 14, therefore the cemetery is also known as Track 14 cemetery.

It is the largest cemetery in Singapore and the only burial site in the country.

 

What made me come to this spooky place?

Well… one boring afternoon, I phoned my friend, Miss S

 

“Hey, whatsss up? I found out there is an interesting activity called the Spooky Walk organised by SPI (Singapore Paranormal Investigators). Would you like to join with me just for fun?”

“Ahhh? Spooky Walk? Let me think…”

“Come on, no need think lah~ It must be a lot of fun!”

“Ayo… Alright, I will join with you but the dinner will be on you, okay?”

“Sure, let’s get it!”

 

The Spooky Walk was guided by Uncle Chua, who is holding a bunch of papers in the picture.

 

This place seemed to be a place to perform ancestral rituals, but quite spooky and gloomy.

 

This is the place that I found the largest number of mosquitoes in the island, where it is normally hard to find one.

If you stand still for three seconds, at least five mosquitoes stick to your arms and legs.

The repellent spray is a must, but the mosquitoes are still running even if we use spray, yet it is still better than nothing.

Pasir Ris Town Park Fishing Pond, Singapore

Fishing Pond only 5 minutes walk from Pasir Ris MRT station.

There are many people jogging or walking around as it is within the Pasir Ris Town Park.

Most of people do fishing here, but there are also prawning sites where we can also enjoy catching prawns.

I often bring beer or wine here and just watch people fishing or prawning.

It is a genuinely peaceful place 🙂

Henderson Waves Bridge, Singapore

An evening glow sighted with a bottle of wine at Henderson Waves Bridge.

 

Climbing to Henderson Waves Bridge after the sunset.

A milestone indicates the direction towards Henderson Road.

 

Beautiful golden waves are dancing in the moonlight.

 

Steps of people who enjoy late-night romance.

 

There are many lights in every place, so it gives quite safe feeling even for ladies.

 

Each wave has space to sit or lie down.

Let’s lean comfortably on your feet.

 

Under the bridge, tall rainforest trees are sleeping.

A day of our lives goes with a glass of wine like that.
