fiber optics lighting 01“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.

      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! 🙂

      Haha! Thats all Sydney can do! A hit and run fella! (Hope you know what I mean!:( )

        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! 🙂

        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! 🙂

        Sydney Fong responded:
        May 21, 2013 at 7:51 pm

        Then I’ll be a land owner! Wow! How can I afford to do that! 🙂

        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.

        Sydney Fong responded:
        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! 🙂

        tchistorygal said:
        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!

      Sydney Fong responded:
      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! 🙂

        Yes, I just wanted a new look in genera. I even changed my template. My new one is kind of fun.

        Sydney Fong responded:
        May 30, 2013 at 12:13 am

        It looks much more neater and soothing!
        You made a right choice! 🙂

        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.

        Sydney Fong responded:

        I do enjoy! You inspire me to change for the better! 🙂
