To those sweet ladies around my house
A gentle lady named “Spider Lily- Hymenocallis“, standing outside my house.
She came from South-Eastern part of America and the Caribbean.
She is not colorful but elegant.
She is not chatty but contented.
Silently greet me with a smile day and night.
This is a warmhearted lady, we used to call her Mickey Mouse Plant – Ochna serrulata.
She likes to open her wide, warming arms to welcome me home.
She is vibrant, she stood under my window, dancing in the Summer, singing heartily.
She came from South Africa.
Ornamental my garden, my secret garden.
This is my Dearest “Ixora”.
An evergreen lady, full of wonders, full of passions and dreams.
Creative in color, red, white, orange, yellow and purple etc etc.
Blooming four seasons, smiling under rain and shine.
She is not tall but out-shine the rest.
She can be commonly seen on the street but she prefers live outside my house.
My amazing lady “Lantana”.
She was born in Tropical America and Afica , faces flush with enthusiasm.
She likes to dance in the Butterfly garden, flapping her wings, swinging along.
She has a strange scent but that make her unique.
She blooms like fire works, keep laughing and laughing, a happy lady, cheerful Ambassador.
Who is the somebody?
Oh! It is the Madras Thorn ( Pithecellobium duice). A 26 meter tall man sitting in the garden of Armenian Church Of St. Gregory The Illuminator, Singapore.
This unique National Heritage tree, girth 7.4m, crown is bushy and widely spread, dull green in color.
A native of tropical America, it was introduced to the region in the olden day by the Portugese and the Spanish.
Leaves are very special with a pair of leaflet on both sides of the leaf stalk. That’s why a Chinese name “金龟子” was given, literally means a “flying Goliathus”.
Pulp is edible, fruits are coiled pods which ripen a tinge of rose-red in color.
Madras Thorn, was once a common trees planted along roadsides of Singapore. During the 70s, the species was attacked by caterpillars throughout the Singapore. Result in phased out from housing estate and roadsides subsequently.
Next time, if you happen to pass by Hill St, not to forget pay a visit to this lovely tree or even have a glimpse at the bus stop.

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.
The MacDonald House was built in 1949 by the architectural firm Palmer and Turner. It is now the only one building left with red- brick exterior in Orchard road. In 1965, two Indonesia saboteurs placed a bomb on the mezzanine floor, three persons was killed and 33 injured.
The impact of the bomb shattered all windows within 300 feets and damages car outside the building. It was due to Indonesia Confrontation, in support of President Sukamo, opposition to the merger of Singapore, Malaya, Sabah and Sarawak. The 2 Indonesia terrorists were convicted to murder and hanged eventually.
The building is designed in Neo-Georgian style. Built in reinforced concrete and clad in red brickwork with rigid language. The white painted frame casement windows allow it to stand out from the modern cityscape of the Orchard road. The 1st floor was lay by creamy natural marble stones, the size of the tiles and refine details made the building more conspicuous.
Obviously, this buiding is different from fast restaurant Mcdonald, this is The Macdo
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.
I 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.
It 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.
This is my “Rush Hour”, quite fun and interesting, that is one of the reasons I had many pictures always ready on hand!
