Maybe it is hoping to get on the covers of the National Geographic. You have excellent photographic skills, Jennifer.


I agree with Chiefy. Superb skills in gardening and photography. :salute: Plus a kind heart to top it all off.

Jennifer, i seem to recognize that estate as that place very near to Bt Timah Plaza. Unless if i am mistaken. :wink:

bingo. Maplewoods.

Our block is next to the main entrance of Nexus. There are quite a number of tall trees, hence the variety of birds we see around here. Early morning - chirping birds n some yakking ones. Plus can see the birds flying around.

Even at this time, apart from the road noise, we have sweet singing from birds.

We used to have a shui mei tree at our Cashew balcony. A pair of small yellow back birds came to make a nest. Could not see what happened to them in the end bcos we moved out and left the tree behind. Dunno think the new owner kept the tree cos I cant see the tree from the balcony when I went to visit the estate.

Suddenly, want to share the below.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vincent_(song)

http://www.risa.co.uk/sla/song.php?songid=12722
Vincent
Don McLean
Starry, starry night
Paint your palette blue and gray
Look out on a summer's day
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul...
Shadows on the hills
Sketch the trees and the daffodils
Catch the breeze and the winter chills
In colors on the snowy linen land.

Now I understand
What you tried to say, to me
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free:
They would not listen; they did not know how --
Perhaps they'll listen now.

Starry, starry night
Flaming flowers that brightly blaze
Swirling clouds in violet haze
Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue
Colors changing hue
Morning fields of amber grain
Weathered faces lined in pain
Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand.

Now I understand
What you tried to say, to me
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free:
They would not listen; they did not know how--
Perhaps they'll listen now.

For they could not love you
But still, your love was true
And when no hope was left inside
On that starry, starry night
You took your life as lovers often do--
But I could've told you, Vincent:
This world was never meant
For one as beautiful as you.

Starry, Starry night
Portraits hung in empty halls
Frameless heads on nameless walls
With eyes that watch the world and can't forget
Like the strangers that you've met
The ragged men in ragged clothes
The silver thorn, a bloody rose
Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow.

Now I think I know
What you tried to say, to me
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free:
They would not listen; they're not listening still--
Perhaps they never will.

[Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) Dutch Painter]


Performed by
Don McLean
Julio Iglesias

Top Of The World


Richard Carpenter/John Bettis

Such a feelin's comin' over me
There is wonder in most everything I see
Not a cloud in the sky
Got the sun in my eyes
And I won't be surprised if it's a dream

Everything I want the world to be
Is now coming true especially for me
And the reason is clear
It's because you are here
You're the nearest thing to heaven that I've seen

I'm on the top of the world lookin'
Down on creation and the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I've found
Ever since you've been around
Your love's put me at the top of the world

Something in the wind has learned my name
And it's tellin' me that things are not the same
In the leaves on the trees
And the touch of the breezeThere's a pleasin' sense of happiness for me

There is only one wish on my mind
When this day is through I hope that I will find
That tomorrow will be
Just the same for you and me
All I need will be mine if you are here

I'm on the top of the world lookin'
Down on creation and the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I've found
Ever since you've been around
Your love's put me at the top of the world

I'm on the top of the world lookin'
Down on creation and the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I've found
Ever since you've been around
Your love's put me at the top of the world


Performed by
The Carpenters

Rhythm of the Falling Rain


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhythm_of_the_Rain

Songwriters: MESKILL, JACK/STERN, JACK /

Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain
Telling me just what a fool I've been
I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain
And let me be alone again

The only girl I care about has gone away
Looking for a brand new start
But little does she know that when she left that day
Along with her she took my heart

Rain please tell me know does that seem fair
For her to steal my heart away when she don't care
I can't love another when my heart's somewhere far away

The only girl I care about has gone away
Looking for a brand new start
But little does she know that when she left that day
Along with her she took my heart

Rain won't you tell her that I love her so
Please ask the sun to set her heart aglow
Rain in her heart and let the love we knew start to grow

Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain
Telling me just what a fool I've been
I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain
And let me be alone again
Oh listen to the falling rain

Thank you, Jennifer! :snuggles:

And I was just listening to the new songs lately, but they all sound more like noise to me than music. I may be an old fogey stuck with rose-tinted glasses of the yester-years, but surely I can tell the difference between talent and noise? Somehow, no one seem to be able to create new songs that are even close to the likes of all those great songs from the Carpenters, Abba, etc back in the 60s, 70s, and even the 80s. Since 1998, I gave up on new songs, and essentially stuck to listening only to the oldies goldies.
