Dramatic Sunrise in Hong kong

Thinking about sunrise and sunset I realized that I have observed more sunsets than sunrises. However it was my dream to watch sunrise in Hong kong which is very elusive. Everyday I set alarm but most of the days it was cloudy until the sun was high up. One day I saw glimpses of sunrise. The maximum I could manage 😀


In response to Cee’s fun foto challenge this week.

I hope you like the images.

Nurturing Thursday: You decide


For Becca’s Nurturing Thursday:

You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them ~Maya Angelou

I was watching the sea gull for quite some time and could see that she had pain in her right foot but she didnot give up and was busy in her regular activities.

The weather is very unusual this year and is breaking records in various ways. Recently there were many sunny (white winter snow) days and temperature was constantly below zero. Suddenly it crossed the zero mark yesterday, melted some snow and without any warnings it was below zero again.

This temperature game put lot of pressure at the emergency clinic this morning. There were more than 50 casualties just between 8 – 10 am with fractures. People had to wait for more than an hour or two to get x-rays.

Last week I hurted my fingers and today I fell down. It happened so quickly, one moment I was crossing the road and just as I was on pavement I fell down. There was no snow, no ice but the stones on pavement were super slippery. Uff!!! Luckily I was wearing thick winter jacket and good mittens. It was and is hurting but is under control. The thought of going back home didnot come to my mind. I decided to be at work. I hope all is fine with bones and the pain will go away.

Dear readers take care of yourself.



Nurturing Thursday: Consistency


For Becca’s Nurturing Thursday this week I would like to share Edmond Mbiaka quote “actions become very effective when they meet the habit of consistency”.

Last three days I tried to capture moon rise from my kitchen but still I am not happy with my work. I shall not stop but will try more. By the way temperature was below -10C during my practice sessions and the kitchen window needed to be kept open.

Floral Friday 3/18

With so much snow all around  and the garden beds are still covered with winter mulch and pine branches. I was surprised to see first sign of spirng.

Eranthis hyemalis is a species of flowering plant in the buttercup family Ranunculaceae, native to calcareous woodland habitats in France, Italy and the Balkans and widely naturalised elsewhere in Europe.
