Community garden

Best friend and I spent the afternoon snooping around some community farms in Bukit Panjang. Starting from now, everyone in her company is asked to take one no-pay day off every week. Well, she's not spared in the economic downturn either.

The air was heavy and muggy as we walked uphill through the park. Even though I was dressed in a light cotton shirt and short skirt, my skin soon became wet and sticky from the humidity. Best friend said I looked like a reporter with my spectacles, hair tied up and CH's camera hanging round my neck.

Walking through the park.

If not for the heat, the walk could have been really enjoyable.

Most of the farms grow vegetables. I managed to find a striking flower amongst the greenery.

The lady who was tending to her plot told us this is Japanese celery.

We saw a big bunny in a cage.

While most of the vegetables are grown on the ground, some can be found in boxes and containers.

A pumpkin flower.

Brinjal or egg plant.

The bluepea flower is used as a natural food dye.

Luscious mustard green.



As expected, it started raining cats and dogs after we left the garden. The vegetables must be happy. The farmers too.
