A pleasant surprise. I remember the last time I saw a ladybird, I was around 9-10 years old. Yes, it has been that long. Those were the times when I got to see a lot of ladybirds on the plants along the fence of the school; my friend and I used to catch some of the ladybirds.
I saw this the other day while my associates and I were looking for some plants to add ‘colours’ to our plain looking office. I was elated to see the little ladybird and immediately took out my Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot camera phone to take a few shots; the few shots turned out pretty decent. It sure is good to have a camera with us always – we never know what surprises we will get in life.
Simple thing like this makes me happy. When we learn how to appreciate life, it is easy to be happy with everything and anything. Life’s goodness is in abundance all around us. I appreciate and am grateful for all these goodness; be it the blessings that came along the way or be it the challenges that came my way.
It has been challenging for the past few weeks with lots of brick walls to be cleared. Brick walls which seemed impossible to break down initially all came down eventually. Just as Randy Pausch said, “Brick walls are there for a reason…” They are there to test how much we wanted what we want. In his own words, “… The brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.” The good news is, the greater the brick wall, the bigger the opportunity for growth.
It was an amazing experience to see how each challenge eventually cleared and the limiting belief which I had of myself broke down. It was as if the Universe conspired to make things happened; all issues were ironed out with the assistance of family, friends etc around us. A simple realisation, “When we truly believe and hold the faith strongly that all will work out great, the Universe will respond in the most magical way.” This is the law of attraction.
However, don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that all we need to do are to believe and have the faith that all will go well. We need to take action to make things happen too!
Last but not least, to share with you sometimes Steve Job said in his Stanford Commencement Speech, “Sometimes life hits you on the head with bricks, don’t lose faith!“

Bukit Timah, which literally means “tin hill” in Malay, is Singapore’s highest hill at 163.63 metres (537 ft.). It is also the highest point in Singapore according to Wikipedia. Composed mainly of granite, Bukit Timah Hill was once an active quarrying site in the mid-1900s but has since then become one of the popular nature reserves in Singapore.
I was there last week for a morning walk with a group of friends and had unintentionally left my footprint at the summit. Since we were in a nature reserve, I thought it was only naturally to walk barefooted and be connected to nature. It had been a long time since I last did a barefooted walk but nevertheless it was an enjoyable experience.
A morning walk in the goodness of nature was both refreshing and revitalising; followed by a simple and yet good breakfast. The goodness of life can be so simple and yet fulfilling to the heart and soul.
Take a break and take a walk in the goodness of nature and feel the positive energy of nature going through your body!
I am truly thankful and grateful for the foot that left the footprint!
If you happen to be in Singapore and want to take a morning walk in Bukit Timah Hill, you can take a look at the below information:
SBS service 170.
TIBs services 67, 75, 171, 173, 184, 852 and 961.
Alight along Upper Bukit Timah Road, opposite Bukit Timah Shopping Centre and Beauty World Centre, or along Jalan Anak Bukit, opposite Courts furniture store, and walk to the end of Hindhede Drive.
Travelling from the city, follow the direction of Upper Bukit Timah Road towards Woodlands, make a u-turn just after the Courts furniture store and turn left into Hindhede Drive. Limited parking is available at the foothill of the reserve. To minimise our impact to the reserve, especially on weekends, you may like to take the public transport instead.

Was this picture taken at the world’s most expensive wine vineyard, the estate of Romanée-Conti, which blackmailer recently threatened to poison the vines. and extorted one million euros from the estate?
Or was it taken in California, the largest wine-producing area in the US?
Or was it taken in the Hunter Valley, which is just two-hours north of Sydney and seemed like the more possible location for a short weekend getaway from Singapore?
Sad to say, it was not taken at any of the vineyards in any of the above locations. I was surprised and also delighted to find this growing in Singapore. Yes, you heard me right! This is grown by Wine Culture, which is one of the premier fine and rare wines boutiques and distributors in Singapore and the region.
Of course when I saw it, I had to take a shot with my Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot camera phone. Pardon me for the low quality image. I’m sure if I have a decent digital SLR with a decent lens to go with it, I would have given you a much higher quality shot which is sharp and crisp. I am happy with this shot for the time being since we don’t get to see grapes growing in Singapore everyday.

I took this picture of a blooming flower from a plant I have outside my home about two months ago. My mother is the one who is keeping it and I have no idea the name of the plant. For almost 4 years I have never seen any flowers blooming from it. However, about two months ago, it surprised me with this beautiful flower. I just have to take a shot of it with my Sony Cyber-shot camera phone. Yes, this camera phone can produce some decent shots.
There may be question in your head, “Why ‘Life and Death’ in the title?” When I was taking shots of the flower, I noticed a green bud next to it; promising yet another beautiful bloom – another life. One life was moving towards the end and the other was just coming into life. Is it ‘Life beginning at the ending of another’ or is it ‘Life ending at the beginning of another?’
Like ‘Chicken or Egg?’ Frankly, does it really matter whichever come first. Most importantly was that the flower bloomed beautifully for when it was time for it to bloom. Such is the work of nature, to keep the cycle going. The plant does not question what nature has for it. Until the next bloom, the cycle continues everywhere around us, everyday, every hour, every minute and every second.
