11pm in the Neighbourhood

11pm.

I peeked out of the bedroom window.. and saw the little world below my block.

It was quiet.. except with an occasional passing vehicle.. Nobody to be seen at the children's playground and exercise corner.. The children are probably fast asleep in bed.. the old folks have gone home.

The little world below me is so brightly lighted.

Yes, this is common in Singapore.. even late into the night or in the wee hours of the mornings, the amount of lightning remains constant.. I’m not surprise if there is light pollution here.

It’s hard to imagine how the landscape would look like in the day… so I decided to do a day and night comparison.

2pm and 11pm

2pm and 11pm

So different, yet so the same.

The neighborhood drifts into a peaceful slumber.. as the day breaks, a day of new beginnings begin again.
