What a sparking day at Punggol Promenade
“Lalang” in Malay, common name has known as blady grass. This special fibre-optics Lalang lights beautifully blend in with the lalang plants along the Sungei Serangoon. It’s supported by refine metal conduit pipes, skillfully curved it with a warm and cozy feeling for park-goers.
Besides lighting up in the night, I have another eyes for the sunlight grow on this particular lighting’s body.
As the sun goes higher and higher, the hot spot getting brighter and brighter.
The inner is support by metal pipes and outside wrapped by hard rubber.
A magical blur effect beautifully blends with the assorted colors.
Some look like stainless steel.
Most importantly, they are there together sharing a sparking day with us!

Did I miss that you actually have a new camera? Indeed really special grass! I like the concept!

I bought my camera last year Oct, I’m not sure whether should I call it new.
Go and check it out the place, sometime you may bump into me! 🙂

Oh, then I am not a good observer, I just see somehow the photos look nicer, or perhaps your skill has improved! Sure I will check one weekend and wait for you there =)!

I went to punggol prk by bicycle from Clementi and reaching there at 5pm, but it was the wrong place, it should be the promenade, a bit further! I have to come back next time.

You mean you ride there all the way by bicycle?
Yes, you have to enter by Tebing lane to reach punggol@promenade.
Punggol park is just a neigbourhood park in Hougang estate near Punggol, is two different places.
I should have told you where is the exact location, so sorry about that! 😦
To my surprise, you are really a sport man! Envy! 🙂

It was my mistake, I should have made sure I get the right name. I have a wonderful trip from Clementi to Punggol, then to East Coast Park, but was unfortunate on my way back, my tire got puncture at Raffles Place, so I took a taxi home. I took the Dunearn Road, then Adam Road, Lornie Road, Bradell Road, and upper Serangoon Road to reach the park. I wished that I could have found some nice quite street to ride, but I still need to explore the whole island with the bicycle first. I was a sportsman in my secondary school, athlete, now I am a badminton player, it is always fun to challenge my own limit. I did a lot more adventures but only my late father knew =) since I am his only son. I hope to go again soon to the promenade.

You really come from a long way! Never mind, just remember enter by Tebing lane, get down in between the two restaurants. I prefer this spot rather than the actual main entrance, that place is full of up and coming concrete forest!
You wouldn’t feel good for the leisure ride! 🙂

Your pictures are amazing. I love your last line that the lighting is there to share a sparkling day with you. Beautiful! 🙂

Haha! Thats all Sydney can do! A hit and run fella! (Hope you know what I mean!:( )
May 20, 2013 at 1:20 am
Well now I’m not so sure. In driving it’s not a good thing! 🙂 And the Sydney I know is a very good person! 🙂
May 20, 2013 at 9:37 pm
Marsha, sometime I just wish you can stay next door! 🙂

Now, there’s an idea! 🙂 I have a piece of vacant land next to me. Can you say the same? Maybe you should come here, Sydney! 🙂
May 21, 2013 at 7:51 pm
Then I’ll be a land owner! Wow! How can I afford to do that! 🙂
May 21, 2013 at 9:49 pm
Property isn’t so expensive here. $60,000 will buy you a little over an acre. 🙂 And it’s beautiful – mountain view, good agricultural land, in an area of beautiful homes.
May 21, 2013 at 11:06 pm
I don’t even have 600 in my bank!
So sad right? 😦
I know I had to work harder, pray harder and Blog harder!
Haha! The land is so cheap there, comparing here you can’t even buy a guard house! 🙂
May 22, 2013 at 12:10 am
Most people don’t have $60,000 in their banks either, Sydney, but then, they are not trying to buy a guard house! 🙂

Nice photos. What is the purpose of these lights that look like grass? Do they light up at night?
Sydney, I noticed you changed your home page photo. Me too!
May 25, 2013 at 12:30 am
Yes, it lights up at night too, the purpose for the grass-like lighting is to blend withe surrounding!
Haha! You notice my home page changes, I just do it when I think I need to change it, I’m sure that apply to you too! 🙂
May 29, 2013 at 1:00 am
Yes, I just wanted a new look in genera. I even changed my template. My new one is kind of fun.
May 30, 2013 at 12:13 am
It looks much more neater and soothing!
You made a right choice! 🙂
May 30, 2013 at 1:17 am
Thank you Sydney, I am glad you think so. I’ve set it up so you can see 5 posts at a time. I think that’s nicer and cleaner.
May 31, 2013 at 12:39 am
I do enjoy! You inspire me to change for the better! 🙂
