Trying a new commute. Getting off a station early and walking a bit along the river. Bumps the walking time from 20 minutes to half an hour, but might be more consistent.
Ah, it’s good to be back home, walking familiar trails once again. 😌
Walked the Green Corridor, which runs along the old KTM Railway, with a few people from work. Really enjoyed it. Total distance was 17 km, which was a little rough in the tropical weather.
Wheels and bridges.
One thing that thrills me about visiting somewhere new is seeing the little things you can also find at home, such as these pedestrian crossing buttons. They even make the same noises, although the patterns are slightly different.
Morning walk around the southern end of Singapore. Love walking through the green areas of the city. Very quiet and peaceful. Also, the Singapore Flyer is to the east of the Downtown Core, not the south. 🤦♂️
I don’t like these pod coffee machines for a number of reasons. Today’s reason is that it took me 5 minutes to work out how to turn the damn thing on. Guess which one of these is the power button. Hint: it’s not one of the obvious buttons. 🤦♂️
Greetings from Singapore. 🇸🇬
Found this on the footpath during my afternoon walk (almost too late I might add). I’m guessing it’s a blue-tongue, based on its size and markings.
One last day trip today. Went down to South Gippsland to do part of the Great Southern Rail Trail. Entered the trail at Koonwarra and walked for an hour towards Meeniyan, before turning back.
This is an older part of the trail, so unlike at Leongatha, there’s not a lot of rail infrastructure remaining. There are still some old telegraph poles though, which makes for interesting photo subjects.
The trail now goes all the way to Loch so after lunch I entered the trail there and walked along it for another hour or so. You can get to it by crossing the suspension bridge at the memorial reserve.
The day was a little warm but otherwise very nice. Some stormy weather was beginning to form near the end. I managed to stay dry, but it slammed into me during the drive home.
It’s incredibly difficult to get a good photo of a Crimson Rosella. They’re quite skittish. But managed to get this shot before it flew away.
Lunch at South Melbourne Market.
Pro-tip: if you’re waiting outside, don’t get caught in hail.
Rehearsal today. Haven’t got the PA equipment yet so I had to settle for 30 year old PC speakers. They worked better than expected, but they’ll probably struggle with a full garden.
Installed the latest version of Android today. One obvious change: the calculator app displays fractions in the result. And there’s no way to turn it off.
This… doesn’t appeal to me. Not enough for me to change apps, at least not yet. But I wish there was a setting to change it back to decimals.
Had to go to the new office today so I tried out the commute. The walk from Southern Cross to the office is exactly 20 minutes.
Day 30: treasure
This one’s inside a box without hinges, key, or lid. #mbsept

Saturday mornings usually mean an extended walk to the cafe for breakfast. I took some photos of my route today. This is probably my favourite one. #mbsept
