detour to Fort Canning Park

Happy Place, Happy Space

Some days I want the comfort of familiar routes. On others, a little detour is most welcome. Instead of following the Singapore River as I often do, I veered left up towards Fort Canning Park on this cool-ish morning. Previous visits have been in the dusky evenings, so it was a pleasant change to explore much earlier in the day.

Reading your Joyful Posts brings me to my happy place. I hope having them in one place makes it easier for you to find when you need a bit of happy therapy, too.

If you would like to join in, ping back to this post and I will include you next week.




  1. Detouring a little is something I love to do, if there’s some spare time on my clock. Lovely park this is ๐Ÿ™‚
    And thank you very much for sharing this lovely sky capture with my challenge ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. Detouring leads to discovery, I’ve realised. You’re right though, only when we have time, and it seems like we’ve been strangely gifted with time in this crazy season. Silver lining.

      Thank you for hosting the Weekend Sky – it is wonderful to see how different the scenery is under this sky we live under.

  2. Looks like you had a beautiful morning run, Ju-Lyn. The chili sculpture is beautiful. Thank you for the mention and for your contribution to #WeekendCoffeeShare. Have a great week!


    1. A pleasure to have you in this space, Jo! That pepper is fun, isn’t it? I was rather thrilled to finally examine it with leisure – I have driven past it on numerous occasions.

      Have a good week too – keep safe & well!

    1. That was my feeling too! I am amazed hat a view just a little elevation affords – I don’t think i stopped at Badang Terrace – I entered through the Clarke Quay side and must have walked straight past it! I will look out for it next time I am there! Thanks for the tip!
