When mum and I saw the Indian lady (who has been feeding the cats with wet food in the late afternoons) in the park, we quickly went down to have a chat with her. I also took the opportunity to pass her the Responsible cat feeding brochure, so that she can explain to people that feeding cats is not illegal and I also want to give her a gentle reminder that she should remember to clear the food after she feeds. It was funny to learn of the names she and her Malay friend have given for 2 of the cats. White Neck is called Humble and Bush is known as Handsome.
I just opened the new packet of Milka chocolate biscuit. I ate 6 small pieces. Very rich and yummy and the chocolate gave me little squirts of happiness :) Another thing that makes me happy is I have managed to get Bush into the carrier this morning (after putting some treats inside the carrier) and brought him to Pet Clinic for sterilisation @ 9am. At the clinic, there was a dog owner with his old blind dog. That poor dog kept walking around and bumped into the wall, my legs and the carrier. I feel sad for the dog. I should be able to collect him between 7-9pm later. Hope he will recover soon after the surgery.

We were well rested and could proceed for the nature walk.
BB and Fusako-san were game for the walk too and as it was already after 6pm, the mosquitoes were crazy about us.
We had dinner @ Crystal Jade @ Ngee Ann City and had xiao long bao, drunken chicken, more xiao long bao in soup, another type of pork dumpling, cabbage, fried hand slice noodle with beef, fried rice. It was a hearty meal and we were happy to see Fusako enjoying the food. We went to the event house and Fusako and I bought some mini mooncakes (custard and lotus paste versions) from The Peninisula Hong Kong.
It was a long and rather tiring Sunday but I think all of us enjoyed the company, food and the experiences :)
More of the ruined city. This morning I wrote in to Sentosa using the online feedback form about our disappointment to see this place in such a state and there are no clear notices to explain to the visitors or indication on the brochures, so that visitors don't come all the way to visit the place and leave disappointed. A Sentosa staff called me around 6pm to apologise and explained that the area and the ferry terminal have been slated for IR development but that is no excuse for them not to inform the visitors so. She said they are in the midst of revamping the brochures and would look into putting up notices.
Fusako was interested in visiting the Lost Civilisation and Ruined City before we headed for Kusu and St John Islands. We were appalled to see the state of the place. Dilapidated, piles of rubbish. BB had to explain to Fusako that the place is not supposed to look like that, although it does resemble a ruined city.
After Fort Siloso, Fusako wanted to visit the Southernmost point of Continental Asia @ Palawan Beach. The past few times I visited Sentosa (about a year apart) I would drop by that place. I like it. We were sitting at the rocks, resting our legs and taking a water break.
