This is life

I find it hard to understand why Singaporeans don't like going for picnics. It's always about the weather - too hot or too wet. Rain or shine, I'm always ready.

What is a picnic without food? For yesterday's picnic, I baked some shepard's pie and a loaf of carrot/fruit cake.

Pity the turnout at Botanic Garden's concert in the park was poor because of the wet grounds after a rainy morning. We think the weather was brilliant. It was cool with the occasional light breeze.

Wet ground? No problem. Just pile on three layers of ground sheet and bring out the food and wine. And flowers.

Amy had brought the flowers to visit a friend at the hospital earlier but couldn't leave them in the ICU ward. With the floral arrangement, we could really picnic in style.

Picnics are perfect for chatting, eating, people-watching, napping or playing. It's really up to you.


LinkFry arrived later with apple cider and more food. I found myself talking endlessly like I had been deprived of chatting for so long.

We hung around long after the band had stopped playing so that we could see the beautiful Christmas lights twinkling in the trees at night.

Cheers!

With much reluctance, we packed up and left the Singapore Botanic Gardens.
