A walk in the park

Got back from Singapore yesterday on a rainy night. Developed a cough and sore throat, most likely due to the weather,curry and dark chocolates. :) In fact, seems like a lot of people got sick lately. Anyway, glad I'm home and relaxing after a tough week! It will be another two tough weeks till September in work. Well, the busiest part of the year is back, it seems!
A rainy night!
 I was with my family in Taman Sutera this evening and attracted to their nice mini park nearby Sutera Mall. There were a lots of nicely design figures in animals, insects and human beings which were lighted up that makes the park looks luminous from afar. Anyway, what I enjoyed most is the sudden peacefulness that surrounds me when walking around the park during sunset. It was really relaxing and therapeutic, a great way to wind down. Moreover, the weather was cool after days of pouring rain.This is just the right moment for me to refresh my mind on a weekend!
A walk in the park

Most of the time, we love to hang around shopping malls as a way to relax. Perhaps, going to a park is a good alternative, just like our parents in the older times where there were lesser shopping malls and entertainment outlets. And, letting the kids run around and sweat is definitely a better idea than the arcade corners in the malls.

Let's get closer to nature!

  1. =( It's been a very long time since I take a walk in the park or go horseback riding. Dummy hubby always too busy and more interested to sit in front of the PC rather than walk in the park or befriend those crazed insects. Grr... he must have grown up locked at home! Grrr!
