I completed my run this morning, together with over 8,000 enthusiastic women. There was a sea of ladies togged in similar sports attire, I couldn't locate my aunt and friends, so I ran alone. At one stage, I was pacing a big woman who power-walked throughout the 10km. It was quite amusing... there I was, running like a dog while she walked effortlessly. For the record, she finished ahead of me! I should just walk next time.
A fellow runner took this picture of me, not before insisting that I wear the Finisher Medal.
The birthday party at my friend's place last night was enjoyable as usual. There were lots of BBQ meats and seafood. The birthday cake was soft and fruity, and thankfully, not too rich.
Since C.H. and I were at Waterloo Street on Saturday morning, I decided to visit the Buddhist temple. I'll let you enjoy the pictures...
The street vendors came out in full force during the weekends. This man was selling medicinal ointment. Can you see his prop? It's a snake (it's either dead or a fake one).
Parking space for trishaws. They come to life in the evenings when the tourists hire them for sightseeing tours in the city. It's quite a spectacle as the riders typically adorn the trishaws with colourful lights and decoration, blasting loud music as they ply the streets.
We took a short stroll to Bugis Flea Market. You can find lots of little shops selling food, clothes and other interesting stuff.
As we were leaving the place, we were greeted by hundreds of pigeons along the walkway. When they started coming towards my bag of anchovies, I knew it was time to leave this place.
