I visited Sengkang for the first time this morning and I have to say it is a very pretty place. Regions of the purple line have always intrigued me. My recent abscence from the viral world has had me spend most of my time reading or workin out at the gym, which was what lead me to Sengkang in the first place as a matter of fact. I never did like workin out alone, unless u counted my ipod as a silent accomplice…
Had to change my mode of transport twice just to get there… but the weather today had the potenital for downpour and being able to see the grey of the sky float in from the distance made the place even more appealing. If you took notice, u’d realize there’s lots of bits & pieces of empty land which tends to bring focus to the landscape instead of seeing building after building, which most districts in the town so desperately seem to wanna imitate. Its probably gonna be a matter of time before the bureaucrats decided to drop a fancy European-named Condo there~
The good thing about a place like Sengkang’s that its got this whole suburban feel to it. It’s the kinda place that doesn’t exactly have anything prominent to make everyone wanna go there and turn it into a fuckin’ circus city. Which is a good thing… I mean look at wad happened to the west~ It’s got that Mall near the station which is cool with those high ceilings I always like. Thats always a good thing, every heart land should have one of those, as well as a communitiy center/sports hall place for your daily recreational activities & wad not..
oOh, and the architecture for the estates is definately a worth a mention… In between the blocks were these little “secret gardens” with spiral stairwells and metal bridges that lead for one building to another. It felt pleasently foreign, I was ever so amused~
So anyway, Im about 12 days into my whole so-called “McCandless Experience” ( After Christopher McCandless, in case some of you didn’t see the movie or read the book “Into the Wild” & not get the analogy of the title ) and I’ve had 2 Alfred Hitchcock movie nights, caught a couple of indies and black-&-whites, and had a rather nice time reading through the original Juile/Juila Project~
I still have so much more to see, I could go on forever bout movies but alas I’d digress. The recent floods to the neigbhouring countries which have, according to the news, is the cause of showers in the early parts of the day. I’ve become aware of how much better I function when the weather is nice and cool. But its been a long time since I had woken up to a beautiful morning quite like today’s. Though hot as well, it was terribly beautiful and will be remember for about a week then subsiquently forgotten~
I blame trashy oriental music and global warming to be the death of this world… shouldn’t be too long now eh? According to the Mayan Calander that is….
