I know of some friends who hate to be around their office during weekends. Not to work, but appreciate the surroundings at a leisurely place. Even some at the Parks and Recreation, do not want anything to do with their workplace on weekends. So much for work and play intermixed. The two don’t mix.
Today, while sending himself to take a train, I dropped him off at Raffles Place, which is one of two interchange hubs for the NS line and EW line. Without the hustle and bustle and the people around, enjoying the sculptures.

David Gerstein’s Momentum reminds me of the Tower of Babel. Sure enough, right at the top, he has a man reaching for the sun. I hope not, because we know the outcome of the Tower of Babel. Let’s hope its heavenwards.
So the next time you’re here to do your banking, take a walk along the river bank, pause and appreciate the sculptures. Whatever, it is, avoid the crowd at peak hours.
