A newly constructed walk is recently been opened along Sentosa link. Rajeevs’ and my family went to spend our evening over there. Sunset view was stunning… but some how my photographs did not came as I was expecting.
My first interaction with mobile phone was in 2002, when I first moved to Delhi. Connecting with home was needed and so I bought my first phone Motorola Talkabout (used). Outgoing was Rs. 6 per minute (SGD 0.15 approx) and incoming was Rs. 4. I used the same SIM for 4 years with different handsets, mostly Nokia.
Time has changed and now various service providers offering free outgoing in same network. Not sure how many folds the user-base has increased, guessing it will be more than 1 set per person now. At that time it was a gadget of show-off for many and necessity for few. Now its a part of daily life – social networking, music, games, photography, you just need a good handphone and entire world is in your hands… 🙂

It was our 3rd consecutive week around The Sands yesterday and I will not bore you posting more photographs of surrounding this place after today :)…
It was a different view of this place in clouds. Will try to post something different or new tonight 🙂
Was there last week too, but could not capture due to my camera batteries were gone :D.
It was Anshu’s Birthday yesterday and this is her one of favourite places, so went there again to spend evening.
I am sure you all will smile after looking at this…
Have a great day ahead… 🙂
Most beautiful light of day…
Finally we were colored this morning … thanks to Rajeev and family for visiting and coloring us 😀
Its “Holika Dahan” tonight and Holi will be played tomorrow.
Plenty of memories of Allahabad are coming and going in front of my eyes.
Green and Red, fine and granular colors, varnish, smell of Abeer and Gulaal, Papad, Gujhiya and home made Potato Chips… ahhhhhh… Too much to recall and live those moments again, at least in imaginations…
Recalling memories of those years too when we did not played Holi. Change in equations, time and place, changes too many things. People say at this day even enemies hug each other, I wish it comes up true again. People are becoming more practical and reserve these days. I wish I can go back in time and play Holi of my school and college days again, it was a real fun… everything and everyone remains uncontrolled and wild till evening, loudspeakers at road crossings, showering water lines and dance of people colored from head to toe… its official day to remain uncontrolled throughout 😀 … what days were those … seriously missing Holi now…
Have fun filled and rocking Holi !!!
