transported elsewhere

Mural at Bukit Panjang Hawker Centre & Market

After our SG Camino run to St Joseph’s Church, Bukit Timah on 2 Apr 2021, we popped into the Bukit Panjang Market, a bustling centre of activity on a sleepy Good Friday morning.

I spotted this mural and was immediately transported to the South of France. I thought particularly of our trip there in the summer of 2002, almost 20 years ago. We travelled with London-based Aunt & Uncle (also Godma & Godpa to the Girls) where we took a house for a couple of weeks in the hamlet of Frigoulet, near the town of Goudargues.

It was a very sunny (yet cool, compared to the temperatures in Singapore) and idyllic vacation.

  1. The mural reminds me of a Monet painting, really lovely.
    Great photos of your time in the South of France, it’s a beautiful part of the country. My son in law is from Marseille and we have visited a few small pretty towns around it.
    Thanks for participating in Monday Murals Ju-Lyn


    1. You’re the 2nd person to mention an Impressionist painting! It was a rather unexpected sight in the centre of a bustling market!

      Ah! Marseille! You must have enjoyed exploring the area.


    1. It was a fun trip! We had a series of wonderful summer vacations to various parts of France when the kids were younger. As they grew older, we started to visit my Aunt & Uncle in the winter, for Christmas, so we stayed in London mainly
