I had a new family member, a little boy that came to the household, so the next few months is gotta be busy men! Lei has a new little brother and is thrilled and having fun the whole night. Well, it has been 3 long years playing alone in the house all by herself. Thought it's abt time Serene & me add a sibling for her. The little one is Shane Vee.
oh...abt the photo below....they're the sand workers. The interesting thing is this people are harvesting sand from the river bed for villagers to use for building works in the village where in Singapore we've to buy sand from Indonesia. Had always thot that sand is a free commodity just like air. Singaporean are probably the only people in the world that use money to buy sand for infrastructure development. It is also becos of this that we're ften held at ransom by regional countries for these"essential" commodities.
Again, this interesting picture is taken on Tri-X at Pundong, Indonesia. It was taken some time back in April 2004 and Pundong must have changed quite a bit to date. Heard that the bamboo bridge has been replaced by the concrete bridge. Sigh...what a waste to see something so meaningful and representative of the village being replaced by the urban decadence. Modernisation!
