In a place and space like Singapore, you wouldn't think that this concrete jungle can be kind enough to allow both nature and greenery to sit alongside together in a harmonious relationship with its hard and straight look of the cities.
Yet that seems to be the case and a good effort at that with the emergence of the renovated parks and recreation areas on this island. I made a 2+ hour walk with two other parishioner friends yesterday morning along the parks, flora and fauna of the Southern Ridges, beginning with the Hort Park through to Alexandra Road area, past Henderson and ended up at Telok Blangah hills into Harbourfront.
It was a walk with nature and kept me in perspective with the fact that life is not all about people and things within the immediate surroundings of my own comfort zone, but also into the wild and green of nature and all things 'bright and wonderful'.
This has been a good Advent exercise to get in touch with the natural wonders around me and not to take anything for granted. Anybody who feels cramped and boxed-in with a dash of migraine can take up this walk of sorts to clear your cobwebs in your head and get some fresh air along the way too!
