YK's school is situated amidst a tranquil residential estate, and is accessible via a small road. After I drop him off every morning, I'll join the long line of cars, inching our way out to the main road. For the next 10 minutes or so, I find myself admiring the nice bungalows and staring at ghoulish looking trees lining the road. I don't know what species but these trees have the ugliest tree trunks. I see nothing but tormented faces on the lumpy black trunks. Take a look... I'm not exaggerating...and this is one of the better looking ones!
