Green Green Grass of Home

At the ungodly weekend hour of eight in the morn, I roused myself out of bed to prepare food for picnicking. I love picnicking, by the way, explicating the expeditions to Botanical Gardens for the Singapore Symphony Orchestra as well as Movies Under the Stars. There is something teasingly enjoyable about nibbling on food outdoors, despite Singapore's somewhat unbearable humidity.

This time, the picnic was held at a very remote green field off Kent Ridge. It was the perfect place for picnicking - quiet, quaint and free from civilization.

Our little canine friends were delighted to see the open green field and wasted no time sprinting away.


The young and quick-footed Kaiser scurries on!


The elderly and sure-footed Toto trots on.


Much to his chagrin, Toto was coaxed into his usual posing self in front of a lonely wilted tree.




Well, he had a bit of fun with Missy Rabbity.


And sometimes, too much fun can get into the head, ya know. :P


Here is a peek at our picnicking venue...


I brought a picnic mat along, and it looked strangely pathetic next to Kenneth's professional picnicking foldable table. I guess with age, the older generation might find it hard to sit and lie around on the ground huh.

Food!!!


The feast includes appetizers of salami and crackers, main courses of some yam thingy, Roast Beef sandwiches, ngoh hiang and dessert of chocolate cupcakes.

Who's got the longest tongue?


Kaiser, looking the epitome of relaxation and cool.

Hmm, don't mind Toto, he's just really possessive about his food. Sigh.

Anyway, what cap secret ah? How come I don't know?! And I thought MEN don't gossip. Tsk tsk. :P
