It’s been exactly two years since I’ve met my parents and gone back to India and specifically Mumbai. And the suspense of when I can go back is really bad, because my parents are elderly and my father is not doing too good, healthwise. So here are some of my favourite photos of our last India trip.
The other day I was doing a digital detox and came across these photos. They are quite old, more than a decade old and most of them are from an exhibit at the Asian Civilisations Museum, here in Singapore. We had decided to take BB & GG when they were still in kindergarten to showcase the museum, my favourite, if I may add.
The other day, GG, BB and I were grumbling about not having taken any holiday for almost 18 months now and with even the border between Singapore and Malaysia closed to tourists, we griped about how we could not even drive down there for a quick holiday.
That brought back memories of two of our trips to mainland Malaysia – one to Langkawi when the children were about nine years old and then to Penang when we did a quick trip during their PSLE marking holiday, so when they were around twelve years old. Both times, though we flew into the cities, we rented a car there and were able to go where we wanted to which was so easy for us. So I went back to my photos and revisited these places in the hope we go back soon. Enjoy them as much as I did.
The other day while looking for some photos to add to my screen saver, I saw some of these photos and had a serious case of wanderlust which at this point in time can’t be satiated. So I am trying to quench some of it with this post.
In end May, Singapore saw some nice paddle pop skies, both during sunrise and during sunset. I captured some of them for posterity and am sharing them here. All photos taken from my window.
