      I keep meaning to say how pleased I was to see the renovation taking place at Yueh Hai Ching.
      Brings back special memories of my Singapore visit.

        From a flight not so long ago.
        Reclamation in progress around Pulau Tekong:

        The Crane Barge and all the vessels seen here is in Malaysian water, the reclamation wall and activity is in Singapore waters.

          I have always said that the day it start snowing in Singapore it is time to move:

          It looks like it is time to look for a new home.

            I bet it's ....ehhhhh... rain, mixed with flour... a botched baking project perhaps...

              A belated April Fool joke. (Since no one cottoned on to my real one in another thread)

              Heavy Tropical rain shower, but on the picture it could look like light snowfall. (Hail has happened, but not very often)

                  The new Condo coming up across the road is nearing completion.
                  During construction it was totally covered in scaffolding and shielding nets.

                    I tried to take regular picture of the process, not always at the same time of day.

                            In the Ports of the World thread I mentioned what is popularly known as "bamboo Scaffolding" and the fact that is actually made from wooden poles. Here is the proof.

                            The same day as I posted, they started to erect scaffolding on the neighbour's house:
