My Article

Posted on Updated on


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!
