Walking in the rain

So quickly, the long weekend has flown by. It's amazing what an additional holiday can do. I had enough time to complete all my chores, read, rest and potter about in my garden.

CH and I even drove out to the North for a delicious roti prata lunch followed by a walk in Sembawang Park. This is one of the few parks in Singapore that still retains an old-world charm.

It was drizzling when we arrived but started pouring as we were walking towards the beach. Instead of seeking shelter, we kept walking as the winds swirled around us. It was fun!

Despite the rain and strong winds, the anglers were out at the jetty. Look at how high the tide was that day.

I was trying so hard to keep my umbrella upright.

The rainy weekend must have dampened the spirits of many campers. It isn't fun being cooped up in the tent all day. Who knows the tent may get blown away if it's not properly secured.

We left the park and stopped by a coffee shop for a cuppa. By a stroke of luck, we came across three young pups as we were strolling around. Seeing how they were shivering from the cold, good old CH went back to the shop to get them some hot meat buns.

Suddenly the parents emerged from nowhere and we decided to keep our distance. The mother dog ate up most of the buns that we tossed over. I think the pups are still suckling, so the mother must be famished.

They look exactly like Milo and his siblings. Milo's older brother was black. His younger sister was brown. Ohhhhhh.... they look so like Milo!

Indeed! I kept telling CH, that brown one looks like Milo! Except that Milo has a cute frowny forehead.
