Seen This Scene That Turns One



Seen This Scene That Turns One

My "Seen This Scene That" has reached the one-year-old milestone today. I shall pause for a mini celebration.

I read the post that I wrote a year ago:

"I am experimenting with SeenThisSceneThat, the name of my new blog.

I hope to put words to keyboard and discover more to life than a fast-paced cosmopolitan existence. I will look for the unusual, the atypical or the off-beat in the common spaces that I see around me. All observations however insignificant or minor that's worth highlighting according to these themes will be used.

There's plenty to see and do around us. There's even more to appreciate in life beyond the hustle and bustle of living in the Lion City. I feel there should be time to slow down, smell the flowers, listen to waves lapping at a beach. In this time-compressed must-be-number-one-in-everything island known as Singapore Inc, such consideration is often a rarity.

Through blogging SeenThisSceneThat, I aim to reduce the gear by a notch or two. I will value the experience as I journey through life. Or else, time will slip by and the opportunity lost forever.

I will enjoy the scenery. As much as I can. As I hope you will too."
and am amazed that this experiment to write about something that I am passionate about is still alive today.

Did I "discover more to life than a fast-paced cosmopolitan existence"?

Did I "slow down, smell the flowers, listen to waves lapping at a beach"?

Did I "value the experience as I journey through life"?

To all those questions, my answers are: YES!

I've enjoyed the scenery and the sharing of what I've seen with all of you.

With your support, I hope to continue the experiment for a while longer.

Thank you, friends, readers and fellow citizens of the world.

Well done. I have found your site quite useful becos I have not been able to keep up with the many new places that have popped up in Spore in recent years. One example is the Mangrove Forest at Pasir Ris. I went there recently becos I saw it on your blog as well as LKK's photo blog.

Hello :D

The amount of time you have invested in creating this is well worth it (: I enjoy reading and getting to know more, especially about the offbeat places in Singapore. Such a pity that my generation and those to come cannot see the past ourselves as room has to be made for development.

All the best in your future endeavours :D

Great blog! I found this blog when I was searching for Marina Reservoir, planning to bring my children there for a change. I was guilty for giving them computers, PSP...etc and wanted to make some changes and go for some outdoor activities. I found your blog a wonderful reference site for many interesting places to go in SG, which some of them I had never known before! Thanks and keep up the wonder works!
