What's a baby cot doing in a garden? It may be an ingenious idea for some, but I know a better way of recycling it than leaving it in the garden.
Milk Bottle as watering can or decorative object? hope no baby's missing it's bottle.

F is for Fried rice, a simple one dish meal. Basically you just throw in whatever you have in the fridge. There's no wrong way about doing it, for mine I've use fresh chillies, garlic, onions and dried prawns - all grinded into fine paste- and sauteed with a little oil till fragrance, then add in the salt, seafood, eggs....finally the rice and mix well. I love to add slice long beans or cabbage for the crunchy taste.
The simple Chinese version would just need garlic, onions, pepper, eggs, rice......

Freshly hanged laundry, once you get the hang of it , it's actually very easy to bring the laundry out, as long as there's no strong wind.
Looking down on my neighbors' laundry.

"EMPS #51: CANDY.
MMMM... CANDY! It's a super simple photo shoot assignment this week folks. All you have to do is grab your cameras and show me your favorite CANDY. The real problem might be in narrowing it down to just one. :)
Extra Credit: Show me a picture of YOU enjoying your favorite candy! Also, please be specific about what settings you used to create your photo, and what, if any, special effects you used."
According to Wikipedia, Candy, specifically sugar candy, is a confection made from a concentrated solution of sugar in water, to which flavorings and colorants are added. Candies come in numerous colors and varieties and have a long history in popular culture.
The word "candy" comes from Arabic qandi, derived from Persian qand, meaning "sugar." In North America, candy is a broad category that includes candy bars, chocolates, licorice, sour candies, salty candies, tart candies, hard candies, taffies, gumdrops, marsmallows and more. Vegetables, fruit or nuts glazed and coated with sugar are called candied.
Outside North America, the generic name for candy is sweets or confectionery (UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and other Commonwealth countries). In Australia and New Zealand, sweets are, in normal usage, further categorised as either chocolate or lollies (for all other non-chocolate candies).
Since I'm not a big fan of anything sweets except for some brand of chocolates, of course this is my perfect choice. Plus there's a bar in my fridge so I'm able to get some photos. Brands that I like are the Cadbury Milk Chocolate, Snicker bars, Kit Kat, Mars and Ferraro Rosche. It won't be long before this bar is gone since the whole family love Cadbury.

Light Fire Attack Vehicle (LFAV "Red Rhino")
- A brainchild of SCDF Commissioner James Tan, and known affectionately as the "Red Rhino", the LFAV is an all-terrain vehicle with a small pump and monitor turret capable of seating 4-5 responders. It is seen around the country parked near to Fire Posts , as in this picture, just a few blocks away from my apartment, and is designed to traverse off roads to aid in firefighting of densely built-up areas without road access which conventional Pumper-Ladders may not be able to reach.
- The Red Rhino was designed and conceptualised in Singapore, being manufactured by the company ComfortDelGro.
