A very dreamy and Happy New Year 2017 to all my friends and fellow bloggers…

2016 was a momentous year, personally, professionally and yes, a momentous year for the country as well, with surgical strikes, demonetisation, and lots of political drama, and yes, the death of amma…

Hopefully, 2017 will see a changed India, with end to black money, competitive real estate prices, end to bank lines, and a more progressive country…

God Bless my Country and take it into a vibrant future

Mornings at Singapore….

_MG_2876

Singapore has some of the most beautiful Mornings and sunrises…. And one of the best places to view them are from the terrace of Hangout @ Mt. Emily.

The biggest pain a budget traveller has is finding good, cost effective accommodation that is also close to the centre of the city and accessible to good public transportation.

I have visited Singapore several times and always prefer to stay at the Hangout @ Mt. Emily.

Any seasoned traveller will know that some of the safest, best equipped and budget accommodation is available through the Hostelling International website, where you can book months in advance paying a token amount of 5 % of the total cost of the stay.

The advantages of Hangout @ Mt. Emily are many and will probably be the subject of another blog post, but the roof is fabulous to enjoy the skyline of Singapore as can be seen from these photographs Smile and yes, the distance of Hangout @ Mt. Emily from Little India MRT is about 850 metres and from Dobhi Ghaut MRT is about 1.1 kilometres or 1100 metres.

Face is an index of the mind….

A popular English proverb calls the Face as an index of the mind.  It was so wonderful to see the art of the Buddhist sculptors who were able to create such life like faces of their Masters

Future

One of the most beautiful promises of the future are young leaves just waiting to unfurl…. these fern leaves, look so green and fresh, holding a promise of so many futures en-furled in their slender fronds….

How can I know anything about the past or the future, when the light of the Beloved shines only Now. ~Rumi
