Changi Beach Park

Purpose of visit was to find tactically good BBQ pit which gives us additional edge for family events. Started afternoon with Anshu and kids, except couple of vomit by Aashi in cab all went well. πŸ˜€

Few of my friends never enjoyed BBQ being vegetarian; they have misconception that BBQ means only non-vegetarian dishes.Β  Because of fact that me belonging from a place which is more than 1500 KM away from sea, we never tried sea foods and being Brahmin by caste we were forced by the social structure to remain vegetarian throughout life.Β  Despite all odds our ancestors have invented many vegetarian dishes which can be cooked directly on coal/wood (my Dad is one of expert of that). It’s not long before, when I enjoyed those dishes India during winters. This is the time to reprise that here in Singapore and what else can be the best place than a BBQ pit facing open seas, couple of shelters around and this all place surrounded by big trees. To add more lust to it, let me inform you that the breeze at Changi Beach Park will take your breath away. As we are planning for a family event, most important aspect for a right location for me was, to have public restroom and drinking water facility nearby. You must be keen to know the pit number, correct? Sorry this is not a free service πŸ˜‰

To compensate your anger, posting few photographs –

I liked the last one, they were 2 old gentlemen having their chairs under the tree and were enjoying sea view, breeze and evening at Changi Beach Park.

Laxman

He deserves a post in my blog. Laxman is Indian immigrant from Tamilnadu and working in Indian Muslim Stall of the food court next to office building, despite rush most of time, he knows what his regular customer likes. Whenever he sees me asks, β€œHaan Bhaiya! Veg Mie Goreng, Plain Thosai (Dosa), Veg Biriyaani, fried rice or Roti-Prata?”, He always speaks in Hindi with me, whatever little he knows. He has a dream to have his own stall one day.

This post is gratitude to him for cooking less oily and less spicy meals for me.

Misery

A devastating event happened in close relation, Arun a relative and close friend of mine, stock trader by profession went missing while returning back from a client place in Kolkata, India. It happened just after my return to Singapore. Police is clueless about his mysterious disappearance. I talked to him during my India trip and he was as cheerful as he always was.

We spent some very difficult time together in Delhi, he was studying in Ghaziabad and I was staying in Laxmi Nager (Trans Yamuna, Delhi), he use to visit me over weekends and spend a entire day with me. After his studies he shifted with me and started doing job in marketing. Later changed profile to stocks and moved to Kolkata, his high energy level and aggression paid off and soon he become vice president of the company. He was doing well and manages to buy his own house in such a short time; he was supposed to get married on 15 Dec 2010, less than 10 days after he disappearance. Everyone including police is just guessing, no clues so far. Please pray for his safe return back home, he is the only son of his parents. Unfortunately I don’t have his photograph, will post one if I can get it from anyone.

There were only 2 posts in December, other than the reason above, which kept me upset entire December, I was busy with documentation and other related thing at the same time. It has started just after returning back from India, first was renewal of family passes and then Aashi’s admission in nursery, things are settling down the corner nicely, hoping it will be over soon and I will get more time to write something and take and post few photographs.
