It was the 3rd day of Chinese New Year and a public holiday. I had just finished visiting a temple when I saw this group of foreign workers standing on a hill, staring at the sky.
Curious, I climbed up the hill and found that they were watching a man flying his radio control airplane. In recent years, this hobby has gained in popularity in Singapore. It is fun to watch, but the thought of taking up this hobby did not cross my mind. :)
Later, while meeting my friends for dinner at the Bottle Tree Park, I came across several Japanese families enjoying their day off prawn fishing.
The foreigners have found ways to spend their day off in a foreign land. Both activities above are enjoyed by young and old alike, are rewarding, exhilarating, educational and addictive.
It sure beats going to the newly-opened, crowded casino on Sentosa Island. :D
