With a blossom flowers that humming in the corner of the night.

To all my Dearest Followers and Blogger friends.

I have been absent from ADDGRAINONEARTH for more than a month.

The Reason is that I was drown in my newly set up 3d printing company that focus and time is the main issue to build a strong foundation for a long journey.

But ADDGRAINONEARTH is not far away still, Sydney is still strolling his garden trail while whispering to all plants and trees.

At the same time, also hope you all can feel and hear what he was like to share with you.

He will be back surely as he promised, vowed to this greenland.

We shared this  piece of holy ground without ranking.

Meanwhile, watch him and Rock Solid 3D in action.

Courier hour



courier hour 02Sometimes I’ll helped my friend who is doing courier service where he last minute can’t find anybody to do the delivery task.

So here I am.

Today, I left home at 5.50am in the morning, reached LRT (Light Rail Transit) by 6am. And took a public bus 27 and change to another bus 37 to reach Changi Industrial Park. Finally, I touched the ground of World Courier at 7.15 am, by then dawn was standing by my side.

courier hour 01I picked 2 parcels for delivery; one must be delivered at Chinatown by 9am, the other one by 9.45 at Orchard WHEELOCK PLACE.

Times is precious, I have to speed up to reach the destination before the specific time required by World Courier, so that I have enough time to roll over for the next delivery.

courier hour 03It was 7.30 am, I took a bus back where I came from and transferred to MRT (Mass Rapid Transports). The time traveling took me about 1 hour plus.

Gladly, I reached the 1st destination at 8.45. I got a stamped for acknowledgement and heading the next job.

courier hour 04I took bus no. 145 to reach WHEELOCK PLACE in Orchard road; by 9.25 I managed to deliver all on time.

This is my “Rush Hour”, quite fun and interesting, that is one of the reasons I had many pictures always ready on hand!

Singapore River by local poet, Lee Tzu Pheng



singapore riverThe operation was massive;

designed to give new life

to the old lady.

We have clearned out

Her arteries, removed

detritus and slit,

created a by-pass

for the old blood.

Now you can hardly tell

her history.

 

We have become

so health-conscious

the heart

can sometimes be troublesome.

Lee Tzu Pheng (Dr) (b. 13 May 1946, Singapore -) is considered one of Singapore’s most distinguished poets. A retired university lecturer, she is an award-winning poet who has published in anthologies and journals internationally.
