18 Mar 2023 Saturday - a watery sort of day

Lines on Paper

It rained hard the whole morning, hard enough to Sam to brave the dirty water and move the cars into the house. By 11 a.m., our whole garden was flooded, slippers and dog bowls floated away, cockroaches crawled out of the drains. Sam and Sean attacked them with insect spray, Sara drew up toilet plans for No. 40, I dug out an old book and read it. I was still reading it after the rain stopped and the water subsided enough for us to go out for lunch, and book shopping.

At the same time, because walkable communities are a rarified commodity, they usually come at a premium.

REVENGE OF THE SHOPHOUSE

Shades of Grey

(note this is posted 2 weeks later) I will fly to Singapore end of next week and stay for 3 weeks. Happy to meet up for coffee if anyone is interested. There will be day-job work to do online. Part of the idea of this trip is to test-fly digital nomad mode. Also visiting family. Hopefully I will find time to apply the BIM pencil approach to Singapore shop houses, an urban type that fascinated me on previous visits.
