Lookin' up, lookin' down

**EDITED**

Praveen and Mel saw a circular rainbow during their trip in Bangkok, and in Wat Pho (Reclining Buddha Temple) no less! How amazing. I did a search and found out that the phenomenon is usually seen from above (ie from an aeroplane looking down). I also found another dazzling image of a full-circle rainbow here. (they explained this phenomenon is actually called a Sun Dog)

Look, cglow also saw an amazing phenomenon of a "double rainbow" in Melbourne.

Closer to (my) home, our air space is now a busy rehearsel ground (sky) for the Red Bull Air Race. Countdown : 3 more days.



The Air Race takes place across 9 countries in the span of 8 months. "The London Air race will take place on the River Thames against the backdrop of The O2 (previously called the Millennium Dome) in the East of the capital. The London Air Race is a ticketed event." The hubs, me and Shean Wenn will most likely be going for the Air Race this weekend - we have been invited by a close friend to watch it from the balcony of his apartment (the views from there looks straight onto the O2). Exciting!

Will post photos if we do watch it. :)

Right now, I have to tolerate with the noise polution, every 20 minutes or so, I hear some planes flying above us (our apartment). Shean Wenn will point outside when she hears them - she knows what is a plane eventhough she cannot see it from the apartment.

--- Today ---


Gymboree class : We actually arrived very late to the class due to some delays in the DLR services (The Motor Show in ExCel is to be blamed). We walked into the class with 15 minutes left to spare.



After Gymboree class : I took her to the square nearby for some fresh air. It was lunch time and the square is littered with office workers having their lunches. What a perfect way to have lunch : Water features, tree-lined walkways with benches for one to sit and have your quiet lunch.

Hey, thanks for the heads up on the "sundog". Oh, and I didn't know they changed the Millenium Dome to The O2: commercially- motivated?

Millenium Dome was a lost cause. Losing millions of pounds. It is definitely commercially-motivated. Do you know I have not stepped foot in here? I should've followed you guys last time, that would've been such a great start to the new Milenniun!

Further trivia, Praveen : "The O2 was opened on June 24, 2007 to the public with an opening concert by Bon Jovi in the arena."*

24 June 2007 - The day my princess Shean Wenn was born. I had very little memory of the concert at O2 though. :)

SW is sooooo cute now, like a little lady with a bit of haught! The outfit is adorable too. I'm a sucker for infant clothes.
