This is a continuation from my last post which already had too many photos. This one will contain photos from when we reached the reservoir and walked around, till the sky threatened rain and we had to flee before we got drenched. It was a very sudden change in weather, as it has been super hot all day long. Must be a case of convectional rain again, where the hot air rises and condenses to form cumulonimbus clouds. My geography teacher would be proud that I at least remembered this, even though I’ve forgotten everything else. Anyway clouds have always fascinated me because they look like they can be touched, like a fluffy cotton ball, that I can’t imagine they are not what they seem, and just an illusory thing.
I adore these cloud quotes and had to share:
Heavy hearts, like heavy clouds in the sky, are best relieved by the letting of a little water.
I’m a dreamer. I have to dream and reach for the stars, and if I miss a star then I grab a handful of clouds.
Mike Tyson (yes – the Mike Tyson!!)
To penetrate and dissipate these clouds of darkness, the general mind must be strengthened by education.
A very bold monkey that was walking among the people at the carpark. I think he wants to tell you “Hey, this is my territory you’re encroaching on. It’s only polite you hand me some fruit and nuts”
The branch falling sign kinda tickled me. But if I actually get struck on the head I think I’ll still find it pretty funny. The joke will be on me then!
Although artificial, I found gazing at the body of water refreshing and all that green, a good break for the eyes. Yet again, the only thing that spoils it is the humidity and heat. It think it was especially humid as the air was close to saturation point. Otherwise it would be just lovely.
A clever couple brought their own foldable chairs to lounge under the umbrella tree. It’s really called an umbrella tree because of the way the branches spread out. It’s quite a common tree on Singapore roads.
I love red palm so I took a shot of this baby shoot which was just sprouting.
Food for thought. This is the water that we will eventually drink, plus some of the gross recycled water, they call new water which I don’t want to think about.
You’re warned not to fly kites here.
A couple photographing a monkey hanging over their heads in the tree.
I am no artist, but I was fascinated by the varying shades of bluish grey as I looked at the darkening clouds.
Also spotted a dad bringing his kids out for a bit of nature.
There are benches to sit on in silence and meditate.
Threatening skies and we’re out of there.
Another interesting tropical plant – the Heliconia.
