WPC – Experimental Route


Experimental Route of Morning Walk

Last July, we spent a couple days of our holiday to stay in a nice hotel in Jogjakarta, the hometown of my husband. And as usual, I do a morning walk around the hotel.

While the other hotel guests walked on the paving blocks surrounding the golf course as I did on previous days, that morning I took a different direction of the walking path. This experimental route which was rarely taken by people, actually gave me a nice surprise. Besides the quietness, in the far corner of the hotel yard, I found a secret garden which was decorated by sculptures that usually adorn the Hindu or Buddhist ancient temples, which are widely spread in this region.

As a temple lover, I was so delighted with this secret garden. Of course, all the sculptures in the secret garden were not original from the temples and made in a modern way with the help of high humidity of nature so those things looked like ancient sculptures.

Being satisfied of taking pictures of the secret garden, I continued my morning walk. Suddenly a thought came into my mind about the reason behind taking this route and not the other one. I believe there is no coincidence, the universe has given me a beautiful gift to feel joy in the morning, as a nice starter of the day and I should be grateful for that…

Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond – (Rumi)

WPC – A Structure At Night


Garden By The Bay, Singapore

 

Walking out of the grand dome gave me continuously pleasant experiences. My admiration for the beautiful gardens in it, -the flower and the cloud forest dome-, also the structure of the dome itself which is composed of steels, glass and concretes, continued as I stepped out of it at night.

My eyes were spoiled by the mesmerized beauty of Singapore at night, the strength of the building’s structure with dimmed lights, colorful lights at Singapore Flyer, -the big Ferris Wheel in Singapore-, and some of the skyscrapers as the backdrop at the distance. Ah, I did not feel my tired legs while walking to the MRT station although it’s far enough 🙂

Beauty is like moon, looks much better at night
