SSO at the Park

Now, whoever said you need to spend a bomb to have a good time? You can have a smashing time anywhere, as long as you are with good company.

Yep, so last Sunday, I daresay I had one of the best picnics in my life. The trio of us consisting of Sam, Huijun and me, made our way down to the Botanical Gardens to celebrate Sandy's birthday. There was a free concert by the Singapore Symphony Orchestra so all you needed was your own picnic basket, a mat and comfortable picnicking wear.

Our food loot is quite spectacular. Sandy brought a bottle of white wine, I brought salami, pate de foie with crackers and carrots with dip, Huijun brought an enormous ration of snacks sufficient to feed a family for a week.

Although it was a tad humid, I enjoyed the atmosphere very much. The lush greenery, the blue skies, good food, good company, nice music... Ahh. That's life, isn't it? It is just about lying down on the fields and soaking in nature's beauty. It reminded me so much of the summer Zen Concert in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park.

We sang birthday songs, drank wine, fed ourselves to the brim, chatted randomly and read the papers.

It was all gooooooooooood. Ooo, how I love picnics.

This is a wonderful blog to read. The utter simplicity of friends, food and free music. What more could you ask for?

Hey thanks for the concern. The vet diagnosed Toto as being perfectly healthy.

Ever since that scare, Toto behaved perfectly normally, hopping and jumping around like nobody's business. I still don't know what happened that day though.
