Amongst the lush Palm Grove and ferns you will find shaded spots ideal for a relaxing stop and picnic here.

At this area is the Shaw foundation Symphony Stage situated at one end of the valley, providing visitors an open concert view of the performances  held regularly here. We enjoyed our family picnics here, with grandson having fun in the open space, and grandpa sketching, while the family enjoying  the music and food.

And another Sunday morning is here… life is about routine and habits…. Groceries, coffee, sketching and making good use of a seemingly restful weekend but CNY preps are somewhat a necessity no matter how light I make of it……..AND LIFE GOES ON…..Here in this sketch, Neighborhood folks are enjoying their breakfast at this popular food Centre. #www.sketchingmysingapore.wordpress.com

Sharing An Inspiring Encounter

As June and I walked out of Shaw Centre last night after shopping at Isetan, we chanced upon this inspiring lady.

With her good hand holding the broom handle and the dustpan pole  cleverly propped under her bent waist, and her deformed hand dangling on the left, she skillfully swept the litter into the dustpan.

She  has such mastery of her work. I was touched.

On the bus ride home I kept thinking of her work  attitude and determination which many of us can do well to emulate. And I was glad the employer recognise her ability and give her the job.

While this captivating imagery remain strong  I  quickly took out my pocket book to record this true spirit of determination and self reliance  to share with you.
