The koi pond. The fishes are well fed. Fat.

I was away for a couple of days in Singapore for a working trip. However, being me, it was rather difficult NOT to not take any interesting pictures and immortalizing them with my camera. I took a short moment away from the working phase and went for a walk at Sun Tech City, a huge rambling convention cum shopping mall. The place was filled to the brim with people from all walks of life due to the fact that there were store-wide discounts offered.
From this posting, you can see all sorts of moments, of different time, places and faces.
While walking, I passed an ice cream stand – Andersons Ice Cream- and ordered this yummy vanilla stick ice cream coated with the loveliest chocolate and chopped nuts. My walk took me to the lower ground floor of the mall where I found the Koi Pond. A great place to sit and reflect quietly. There were many benches to sit and so I walked to one and did just that, all the while still enjoying my ice cream.
Just not too long ago, I reflected, all these simple enjoyment escaped me. It was all work. Everything were calculated. Cold. Dry cut. It was fun and fulfiled while it lasted. BUT, this was more fun I thought.
Never had I imagined how liberating and carefree I felt in a metropolitan city, sitting on that bench, watching the koi swimming and feeling the breeze in my hair.
