Here now and now here or nowhere

The title of this blog comes from a play on words that "now here" is also the same letters as "nowhere" just with a space added in the middle. I am always trying to get better at being in the here and now, and I've always been a bit of a joker so that is why I chose this name.

Out For A Nature Walk In Singapore.

While in Singapore I decided to out for a walk along the The Southern Ridges.  According to Wikipedia, The Southern Ridges are a 10km group of green spaces in Singapore spanning the hills of Mount Faber Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park and Kent Ridge Park. It is an area rich in history and is home to to a wide variety of flora and fauna. It sounded like something nice to do in the city full of shopping malls and concrete structures.  The walk is beautiful, with numerous elevated canopy tree line paths among rich flora, though not much fauna.  The contrast of the nature, the city skylines, and the water in the distance was a wonderful stark contrast from each other.  There is a small beautiful bridge along the way, the Henderson Waves Bridge which is rather unique and elegantly designed bridge and highlight of the walk for many.  You don't need to walk the full 10km, though I highly recommend it as the canopy trails are all different and the scenery changes as well.
