For Discovery, a farewell spin

It's been an ugly week 

for dramatic photos with the disaster in Japan

Take a break from the sadness in Japan and view this

A walk around the neighborhood

Nice landscaping 

Coconut trees are a rare sight in other cities

Even more rare to see someone on bicycle in modern Singapore

The most common sight is the city bus

Double-decker bus is widespread in Singapore

And colorful ones too

Last but the least, 

Welcome to Jurong East

Singapore through my lens

Capturing Modern Singapore 

in the midst of the 

Japan nuclear crisis

Radiation leakage from Japan will probably take years 
to reach Singapore 
and the impact should be minimal,

and on their farewell formation flypast 

over the houses of Parliament 

they gave the government a message 
"F_ _ _  O _ _ "

Munching On Mulberries

This mulberry plant grew in my back garden

The berries is a perfect combination of chewy 
with an ever-so-slight crunch 
and it packs a powerful anti-oxidant punch with resveratrol,
which is also found in the skin of red grapes
Eaten alone, its sweetness can satisfy the deepest of sweet tooths but can also serve as a nice, less sugary addition 
when mixed into a healthy 
yet bland-ish cold cereal or yogurt

These 2 photos were taken using Panasonic Lumix F18

handheld with manual focus

These mulberries look so good 

they can be used to make mulberry wine

Makes 1 gallon

5 pounds mulberries

1 teaspoon pectic enzyme

4 pounds sugar

1 Campden tablet

1 package wine yeast

1 teaspoon yeast nutrient

1 1/2 cups orange juice at room temperature

1 teaspoon acid blend

1/4 teaspoon grape tannin

Crush the mulberries in a 2 gallon fermenter. Pour 2 quarts of boiling water over them. Let the mixture cool, add the pectic enzyme, and cover the container with plastic wrap or foil. Let stand for four or five days, stirring daily.

Strain the liquid through cheesecloth and add sugar, stirring to dissolve. Add a Campden tablet and let sit for 24 hours, well covered, before proceeding.

In a jar, make a yeast starter culture by combining the wine yeast, yeast nutrient and orange juice. Cover, shake vigorously, and let stand 1 to 3 hours until bubbly, then add to the must.

Add the remaining ingredients, plus enough water to make 1 gallon and pour the liquid into an airlocked fermenter. Let the wine complete the fermentation process. When it is clear, rack and bottle the wine.

Wait at least six months before sampling your first bottle

Persistent Periwinkle Presses On

This plant came with the weeds in the front garden

After being weeded out twice,

it grew back again
