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!

By courtesy of evespiration.com

Is Durian’s Season now, some tips you may like to follow while choosing a king of fruit!

First, pick up a durian by using a towel cloth or a glove and give a gentle shake. If the sound is dull and subtle, this is just right. If it is knocking sound, the fruit is not ripe enough. It there is no sound; the fruit may be too ripe and taste bitterness (to some, bitterness is the best taste among).

Second, durian should smell little fragrant. Too pungent may indicates the fruit is too ripe.

Third, some seller allows open up the shell slightly to examine the flesh. It should feel soft and tender not watery and hard.

Fourth, buy back home and test personally.

My Article



my sengkang article 01Lately, a local Chinese Press published my article in one of the Leisure section. This is a prose; it talked about the beauty side of Sengkang@Promenade that is a famous estate park in Singapore.

This is the second articles published after 20 years of my “rest and relax” period.

I hope that this is not the last piece of my story.

But for sure, when ever I saw, I heard, I touched, I always think about what I write, is going to share with the whole world!

How exciting it is!

So for that, on this ordinary day, I would like to make this opportunity to thank all my followers and blogger friends.

Through my sincere heart, thank you very much!

pcn 10Wishing everyone, a warm rising sun on you!
