Worn out

I couldn't get out of bed today because I stayed up last night chatting with YK. He couldn't stop thinking about some careless mistakes he made during the exams. No point thinking about it, he has many more papers to go.

He couldn't sleep the night before after his chemistry paper and only managed to doze off at 3am. Looks like I'm not the only one feeling worn out.

Thank goodness SK starts school at 8.15am today or we would be late. Anyhow, we still managed to do the midweek breakfast routine. He's the only one having fun as his exams are over. All they do is watch movies in school these days.

Taking about worn out, the development at East Coast Park is looking old and shabby. Maybe it has something to do with the humidity and sea breeze, the building facade is getting mouldy and dirty. It's time for a refurbishment.

Even though we're one of the cleanest cities in the world, you can still find lots of litter in the parks and housing estates. Without the diligent cleaners like the one above who start work at the break of dawn, we wouldn't be living in such a wonderful environment.

Pretty cat outside McDonalds.

Looks like we're going to have fine weather after days of rain. Look at how mouldy the paintwork is above the restaurant.

There's a funfair going on. The attractions are a little worn out too. These were very popular during my childhood and I'm surprised the designs haven't evolved very much. I wonder if they're still popular with the kids these days?

I'm sure this was the same dinosaur I saw 30+ years ago!

The carousel - a perennial favourite.

On the way to the car park, I saw these 3 cats lying on the grass. In other countries, you would probably see bunnies but here, we have cats in the park.

The pictures are so vivid, so colorful, the cat picture is especially good :)

I wish YK luck with the rest of his exams. I know that feeling when you are worrying about something and can't sleep!

Great pics. I must admit when I visited Singapore I commented on how clean everything was. Far cleaner than London! Talking of London, I must reply to your email. Sorry, I haven't forgotten you, I've been swamped with the work load since returning to the office!

oh lots of cats...i guess YK feels he can't stop worrying about exams..but once they're over...there's no changing things... if he feels he did the best he could...that's all anyone can ask for right??? I know... easier said than done!
