|Colourful rainbow umbrella hanging on the window grills of this vibrant teal facade. I love the distressed door and the understated ornate door knob.|
|Saw one of few sand covered playgrounds left in Singapore. All are slowly being replaced by rubber matting. |

|Pops of bold colour. Grill-work pattern. |
|Beauty in the ordinary|
|This palm tree mural at the side of a building is the only thing that hints to what used to cover this whole area - a coconut plantation.|
|Educational graffiti |
|Rectangles & triangles.|
|View from above - see the ships along the coast beyond? |

popular hang out on Sunday's for domestic foreign helpers on
their day off.
|Purple & red|
|Easy like Sunday morning|
