Kranji Heritage Trail

Complimentary guided tours were made possible with the generosity of an organisation. I got a ticket for myself, because I found the heritage in this area fascinating. It is called the Kranji Heritage Trail.

Frankly, my youth group is working on a partnership with another school to make Kolam Ayer Heritage Trail possible. So I think it won’t hurt if I expose myself to more similar activities.

Our first stop is the Kranji War Memorial. The group was blessed with fine weather, so the photos were quite ok. This is a state land and former President Inche Yusuf bin Ishak and Benjamin Henry Sheares were buried in this cemetery too.

Second stop was the Hay Dairies Farm. It was a little disappointing that AVA has prohibited public interactions with the baby goats. The kids in my group were utterly desolated upon hearing the announcement.

Last stop, Bollywood. The kueh and fig drinks were marvelous. However, the purpose of this trail was supposed to be heritage, but it appeared to have diverted to the countryside farms. There were some other places which have more historical value, but were not included. I do understand that time is tight, but seriously the farm tours can be replaced, because farm tours were being organised frequently already.

Anime Fest @ Singapore

It was so crowded, and so … colourful. Wigs of all colours and shapes were showcased inside and outside of the festival.

My buddy Tse Min asked me to join her. I was bubbling with excitement as this is my first time participating the anime-related events. The sheer crowd and their overpowering enthusiasm were hard to digest, and I started wondering what is it about anime that draws this big group of young people, and some old ones too.

So, I decided to check out a few of these animes to understand it better!

Tse Min!

Another riveting read from Jodi Picoult:

He knew better than anyone that you could not trust a woman who said she was telling the truth.

All it takes is a second and your whole life can get turned upside down.

I think that all of us have got our ghosts.

She was doing this because she knew what it was like to hit rock bottom and to need someone to give you a leg up.

What she didn’t understand was that what you had could never make up for what you’d lost.

Words, he knew, could scar.

Raw love, like raw heartache, could blindside you.

Ignorance. A very nice segue to bliss.

After a certain point, a heart with so many stress fractures would never be anything but broken.
