We look at ourselves every day; did we change?

What happened?
Why?

How did we end up like this?

Trees plays a vital role in our everyday lives, especially in urbanised cities such as Singapore. Trees provides us with shade and shelter, and most important of all, it reduces carbon dioxide emissions.

However, the gist is that not all trees are capable of doing so. Typically, only large woody trees have the capacity to take in a high percentage whereas smaller trees (such as palm trees for aesthetic purposes) makes no significant difference. At times, these 'green' spaces can act as a carbon sink and have a impact on carbon footprint - not to forget the young trees that are imported.

In Singapore, we have over 200 heritage trees, trees that exist before time, trees that have been there with our ancestors. Sadly, not all trees are able to survive from the wrath of urbanisation.

I hope to visit as many as I can before (touch wood) they are unfortunately chopped down to make way for new structures.

The natural world belongs to all life forms on earth. Surprisingly, humans have took Mother as their only own.

 
 

Dedicated to our one and only MacRitchie forest. We all have the ability to make a difference, speak for the voiceless, care, and nurture together. MacRitchie, not just a mere location or a place for recreational activities but it is an environment, habitat, home to many animals, and most importantly Singapore's pillar of support.

Simply put, we can't live without the forest. After all, the "tree of life" archetype exist for a reason.

 
 
 
 

Leaf crunches underneath your feet, falling leafs like snow, soft breeze calling your name, a pair of curious eyes stares back at you.

What a beautiful day.

Since young, I am exposed to nature through documentaries on the television. Although I had lacked the real-life experience of nature, but with a curious young mind, I was sucked in and intrigued by the moving images and the soothing voice of the commentator, actively feeding my curiosity and fulfilling it.

 

Unknown to maps and satellites, set to discover a brand new world, a world that I could call my own. Embarking on an otherworldly journey filled with wonder and imagination; desire to seek one that is similar to a Utopia, at the same time, one that is not as perfect. In a dimension where everything can be different, and all could be made possible without the constrictions and commitments of the actual world.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

This world is, most of the time, calm and placid, albeit has its ups and downs. Unexpected volcanic eruptions or even strong tidal waves that hit the shores with tremendous force is not an uncommon sight. Disasters do happen here, as I have mentioned earlier, it is not as perfect as a Utopia.

 
 
 

It won't be a perfect ending, but it will still be a satisfying one. Or should I say, the ideal ending.
