I was initially really excited to read that Nokia has launched its music store in APAC. Wow, finally. Even though I haven’t used a Nokia phone in nearly 4 years, I was really pleased for the opportunity to buy music legally online. The S$2/track price tag was reasonable and I was ready to whip out my credit card… but this stopped me cold in my tracks.

I snuck off for an hour before dinner on Saturday to give my new toy a spin. I took a brisk walk and made my way to the section of the railroad tracks near Rifle Range Road. A small lesson was learnt for the day: flip-flops don’t do well on track gravel. 🙂
A legacy of our colonial heritage, the railroad tracks have always been a familiar sight for me growing up. Both my primary school and junior college (before it moved) were located just beside the tracks along Holland Road.
An early appointment in the City Hall area brought me there last Saturday morning. I didn’t finish until past noon and went hunting for a simple lunch after that. I found a coffeeshop along Waterloo Street, a stone’s throw away from the Art Museum. After a satisfying lunch of chicken rice, I found to my delight that entrance to the museum was free for the day. It was not a bad thing that photography was not permitted in the galleries (it is allowed in the museum’s public areas); focusing on the art pieces is easier when you’re not peering at them through the viewfinder. 🙂 I spent a satisfying 2 hours going through the museum’s galleries.
Went photowalking with a friend at Chinatown on the weekend. We ran into some rather unpleasant business which I will not go into detail here but we managed to get a good morning’s walk out of it anway.
Chinatown has alot to offer for photography enthusiasts and we saw many fellow camera-totting photographers on the streets. I didn’t cover as much ground as I hoped but that just means I will have more to shoot the next time I visit Chinatown. 🙂
