Orchard Road



It's Autumn, the only thing we will know that autumn is here is by the main chinese festival called Mid Autumn's Festival. So it means even before the full moon nite, it's mooncakes sales, lanterns etc. Other than that, no obvious signs of autumn becos our weather will not change. It is still like Summer! Sunshine. Even if we hope that it rain a bit to clear the hazy conditions becos of the Sumatran forest fires, it will not. We have to wait for a couple more days then it will start to pour abit:)

This was found outside the stretch of road called Orchard Road. Orchard Road got its name from the nutmeg, pepper and fruit orchards that used to lie on either side of the street in the 1800s. Now it is rather strange if you try to match its look with its name. See the overall effect on this pix here. This photo shows the ad panels of Paragon at night, it is like a "Moulin Rouge'' wanna-be. Don't you think so?

Nice photo! I think that street is good for shopping. By the way, have you been in esplanade theatre on the bay? When I have been in Singapore, the theatre was under construction.
