Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: The Colors Yellow and Red

When I saw this week’s Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: The Colors Yellow and Red, I decided I would have some fun just picking from the few photos which were taken these last 5 days while on my present stay in Singapore.

Red on Yellow does indeed have an eye-catching Power.

Rojak is a local salad, Popiah is fresh, unfried, spring-roll loaded with shrimps, sausage slices, jicama, etc. many times better than the fried ones, and cockles (blanched and dipped in red-pepper garlic sauce).

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Buildings and Trees

I love trees! Always have. Now, with this fascination in digital photography, I go around with an idiot-proof camera snapping photos of everything, including trees.

A month ago, on a trip back to Singapore, I decided to walk down memory lane ~ ah yes, that 1st apartment I ever owned, plus the tree which is now 5 times its size when I was living there (and it was right next to my parking lot too!)

Memories ...

Memories …

And then years later, in the US, hubby & I built a well (DIY) specially to save this precious oak tree when we bought a plot of land & built a house on it.

Singapore, the garden city ~ the famous Marina Bay Sands has a gorgeous walkway to its side entrance lined with (what else?) trees. Incidentally, there are also trees on the 55th floor, roof top pool area of that hotel complex.

High rise; high trees.

… and then there, on a quiet beach of Florida ~ lay a simple beach building with trees. Building and trees go hand in hand like flowers and bees.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Hats 

I love hats!  OK, I decided to take an ‘inventory’ of the hats scattered all over the house for different uses.  There are Hat Trees and there are Hat Trees, right? … so here is my Hat Tree.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Farm Animals

cees-fun-fotoFarm Animals ~ As a once-upon-a-time urbanite, I never knew much about Animals or Farms. The closest thing I’ve experienced was, the book Animal Farm by George Orwell which we read for Literature, 1 year in school.

But learn I did.  OK, here goes …
