Let me share a story about this photo set.
My mother has worked at the Philippine Department of Agriculture for some years now. Her job at the department involved collaboration with other ministries of agriculture in Southeast Asia, as part of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). Back in 2011, she had the chance to attend the 18th ASEAN Summit held that time in Jakarta. She and her colleagues went on a short overnight trip to Singapore when the summit concluded.
Based on the pictures my mother took – she and her colleagues paid a visit to Orchard Road and Sentosa, heading to Woodlands where their lodging was located. They flew back to the Philippines at first light the next day.
I only had a chance to look at the set recently, despite the pictures being there for a decade now. My mother cut her hair short now, far from the long locks she had when she took these pictures. Interestingly, I also visited the places she went to in 2011 – during my 2017 trip with a former partner and my subsequent 2019 trip with my younger brother. Some of the places no longer existed since that initial visit.
I’ll end here and proceed with the pictures themselves.
And that ends this entry. Click on this link if you wish to read more of my posts about Singapore.
Until the next post, stay safe!
