30 April 2007 in a nutshell

I had taken leave from work today to find a little more time to practise. I am feeling glad that I have managed to find time to play the entire Berkeley's Introduction and Allergo. It has been nice to take a break from the usual work routine.
The photo that you would see above is taken during my visit to the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple, located in Little India, Singapore. I had went for one of the Original Sigapore Walks this evening. This is a photo of a statue of Ganesha. Notice that there is a statue of a rat close to the feet of Ganesha. The rat is said to be Ganesha's vahana which he rides on. I was told that it is symbolic to have a rat as Ganesha's vahana. Here's what I understand: when one needs to clear the obstacles in one's path, one needs to face one's fears.
It has been an enriching and interesting tour, and I am pleased that I had went for it. As part of the tour package, tour participants get to enjoy an Indian dinner. I am nostalgic perhaps. While I was having dinner, I can't help but to think of the dinner that I have had with Mystic several months ago.
Back at home, while I was surfing the Original Sigapore Walks' website, I've found out that it has a new tour coming up in May 2007: The Tipple Exchange™ . This tour sounds like fun, and I would love to hear about the stories of the bridges along Singapore River. The interesting thing is that this is a pub walk, and the price of the tickets include three speciality drinks! Would anyone be keen?
Tomorrow is a public holiday, and I don't need to report for work. I have set the day for more practising. Hope it would be fruitful.
