    Walking in my neighbour hood.

    This afternoon after I'd finished eating my Thai red curry that my dear wife had left in the fridge I was feeling like a bit of a walk.

    Lets look out the window to see what it's like outside today.

    Now I don't have the latest in digital SLRs (I think my old Canon IXUS 400 is probably at least 5 years old).

    I also certainly don't have the photographic skills of any of the entrants to the TD photo competition and don't have any photoshop skills either.

    But I can point, shoot, resize, upload and post. So if you bare with me, I'll take you for a walk around my neck of the woods (Eastern Singapore).

    As you can see, there's not much activity about the pool at this time of day. It's still a bit hot and the swimmers will all be out once the shadows move accross the area later in the day.

    As I walk through the club house, I can see one family in the ball room.

    Outside again, the tenants are also waiting for it to cool down a bit before having a game of tennis.

    But today I'm going up the hill through closed section of the road. I'm not really sure why they've closed this section, it would be quite a drive to get from one end to the other, only 50 metres away. Bikes can still get through, but there's a narrow gate behind me in this photo to prevent cars from making it.

    Just past the other end of the closure is this Chinese Buddhist temple.
    Most weekends there are parties of one sort or another going on here.

    We cant really see much from the road, so lets go inside and have a look.
    I don't know why this one's face is covered up. The red covering doesn't go all around, its just over the face.

    There's not usually many around here in the middle of the day on a weekend. I guess (like me usually) they are all hiding from the heat and will be out and about later in the day.

    What do they finish/seal the outside of buildings with there?

    One of the things that pisses me off here is exteriors of buildings that are completely fcuked up within a couple of years.

    (Need to get my house repainted )

    Another soulless hive in the human anthill that is an Asian city.

    Nice pics though, my sympathies are with you and your family for having to live there.

    I am very happy to live here. I really don't know why a few people have negative perceptions of life in Singapore. Singapore constantly comes out on top in most surveys of places to live in Asia. The quality of goods and services available, transport and infrastructure, low crime rates, safety, efficiency and cleanliness are all winners in my book.

    Anyway, after leaving the temple, we continue up the hill. Some of my neighbours live in landed properties.



    While others live in condos.

    At the top of the hill there's probably some residents that aren't so happy to be my neighbours.
