Waiting… and Waiting.

waiting for spring

Sometimes life feels like a giant cycle of waiting.

Waiting for each moment to pass,

Waiting for each day to end and a new day to start.

Waiting for celebrations, waiting for holidays, waiting for the weekends.

Waiting for milestones in life – to grow up, to graduate, to work, to meet someone? To start a family? To… ?

(Though of course, not everyone waits for the same things in life)

Waiting, with the danger of never fully living each day.


This waiting, although futile, may be just the thing that keeps us going.

For, like the only thing that sees one through the bleakest mid-winters –

Is the Faith that Spring will come again.

And so, we wait.

Metal Jungle

Brought Xiao Taaang out to Gardens by the Bay today.




We saw supertrees, man-made structures which reached heights of 25-50m. According to Wikipedia, they are supposed to be:

“home to enclaves of unique and exotic ferns, vines, orchids… They are fitted with environmental technologies that mimic the ecological function of trees… just like how trees photosynthesize; collection of rainwater for use in irrigation and fountain displays, just like how trees absorb rainwater for growth. The Supertrees also serve air intake and exhaust functions as part of the Conservatories’ cooling systems.”

Of course, there were also “real” trees around.




Although, if I were a tree in this environment, I’d be pretty intimidated by these steel mega-structures.


After a while, you can’t help but start to wonder: What happened to the natural part of nature?
