EMPS # 152 - In the clouds.

 
"EMPS #152: IN THE CLOUDS.
Okay, enough with autumn already, let's do something completely different. Let's tap into some fantasy, shall we? This week, I want you to produce a fantasy IN THE CLOUDS! Simply take a photo of some clouds, either this week, or maybe use a photo of clouds you have in your archives, and create a photo using your photo editing software that depicts what you "see" IN THE CLOUDS.

Extra Credit: Take a photo of the reflection of an object in a mirror."

FMTSO: LAWN TOOLS



I don't have any lawn tools since I'm staying in a high rise apartment without a garden or lawn to take care off, so I have to look around at what the workers from the Town Council and National Parks Board use in their daily task of  caring and cleaning  of our parks and lawns.



Cutting of the grass in between the apartments, using hand held  string grass cutter.

For bigger and even area, the bigger land mover is used. Photo taken from my apartment.

The town council's worker clearing dead leaves daily, to keep the area clean.

 
Rake. spades and look carefully behind, there's a red mower at the back too.Workers from the National Parks Board still putting final touches at a promenade next to Punggol Beach.

 
The cangkul (hoe)- more commonly used here in Asia.

 

A  broomstick made from the sticks of the coconut leaves- used for raking and sweeping in the lawn/yard.

EMPS: Thankful


I'm THANKFUL for having this precocious and precious young lady as my niece.

She's the only granddaughter  to my mom.


Ruby Tuesday: Red phone

 


It's getting more and more difficult to find public phones here as everybody have a mobile phone now. Except in area the contracted foreign workers hang around during weekends, these phone booths are aplenty there. All they need are the prepaid card to make calls back home using these phones.
