    We have the first big snow today. The weatherman said we will have a very cold winter this year.

    We are darn lucky to have the warm air today and the heavy rain helps to wash away the snow, otherwise, snow will be very messy all over the places.... Now then, we have the warning for flooding...:-(((

    Default Sunny days in Singapore at Jurong West

    Though we experience unannounced intermittent rain from time to time, in general our days are usually sunny and warm. We've never experience snow here except hail stones but very, very rarely. We should expect more rain during this time of the year, but Christmas in Orchard Road will again draw the crowds, including the tourists.

    Over the weekend, I ventured to the western most part of Singapore we call Jurong West. It is one of the many large satellite public housing estates, with high-rise flats or apartments supported by public amenities, including 24- hour coffee shops, schools and supermarkets like Giant.

    I could see the Nanyang Community Club, where I suspect some of our BC members may be playing badminton there on a regular basis. Opposite it is the very imposing City Harvest Church, somehow very attractive to young people.

    Loh,

    You stay around Street 91?

    Though I stay in CCK, I often go to Jurong West Sport Complex for my badminton sessions with my friends (we are all beginners )on Sundays, unless there's marathon on that Sunday.

    Nice photoshots as well, I wish I could take pictures like that.

    Hi Joe, I live in the West Coast but not exactly in Jurong West. It is my camera that did the work, not me.

    I have some more pics as I pass from Jurong East to Jurong West and I think I got a shot of JWSC as well although I've not played there before.

    Of course, Jurong East boasts of the Science Centre and I have also captured some other sights as I went along, including the Chinese Gardens from afar. And I mustn't miss Nanyang University (now NTU or Nanyang Technological University of course) and the beautiful Chinese temple:

    Oh I see. Do you cycle around with your camera often? To me, I think you did .

    I used to study in Jurong Sec during the 90's and I miss Omni Theater...

    I saw Jurong East Sports Complex in one of your shots, alot of good players played there as well .

    Good that some pics brought back some good memories. Yes that was Jurong East SC, not Jurong West.

    You're almost right that I cycled, but to go faster I used a motor scooter.

    Whenever I visit the new HDB (Housing & Development Board) estates I have a feeling of 'freshness', of renewal.

    I'm most fascinated by the variety of facades the architects managed to add to normally mere barren buliding blocks. And the colours they introduced are definitely more hip and daring!

    I particularly enjoy looking up to the top to see the roof designs and it will surprise you how different they could be!

    You're right... the range of colours and facades is quite uplifting
    The only building that bothers my conscience is the new Supreme Court.
    Why should the ordinary man's highest forum for justice be so extravagantly encased in marble?
    And what is that huge, saucer-shaped thingy on the top?
    Expenditure's crowning moment?
    Maybe you should post a slew of defining pictures here

    A court is not a showpiece for lavishness... it's a place where equality and fairness should rule.

    Oh our Supreme Court, was formerly housed in the majestic, colonial City Hall, overlooking the Padang, our great playing field, right in the heart of the CBD! The Padang and the adjacent Elizabeth Walk, now largely occupied by the Esplanade,Theatres-on-the-Bay, used to be a favourite hang-out for young couples and families who frequent the "Satay Club" at the extreme end near the Singapore Recreation Club. Not too far away on Beach Rd, could be found neat rows of stalls selling mostly Malay delicacies, including satay, mee goreng, pisang goreng, mee siam, etc.

    I didn't even realize that the new saucer-shape Supreme Court is encased in marble, but it is meant to keep up with the times and hi-tech advancement (our Supreme Court is now 'electronically' wired to reduce or do away entirely with paperwork). It is true that there was hue and cry in public about the extravagant expenditure on public or government buildings and since then they have been much more subdued in spending, but of course "equality and fairness" has continued to rule in our courts regardless.

    Some pics of the old and new (also during construction) Supreme Court, seen adjacent to Parliament House:

    Nice pictures; I must include Singapore a visit in my future vacation trips.

    Somehow, I think, it could be a good idea for BC members to introduce their places of countries with events, occasions, festivals, places of attractions and etc. with pictures.

    I strongly support your idea!
