You Capture | Everyday Things



 

Every day, this is the view we get from our living room window.  Sometimes we see fleets of fishing boats, sometimes we see cruise ships;  sometimes we see sailboats.  Some days we don’t see even the island across (East Dragon Island) because of the fog/haze, but on clear sunny afternoons like today’s, we can see way beyond East Dragon Island and all the way to the horizon.

 

Every day, I carry a small bottle of hand gel in my bag.  Right now, it’s Cucumber Melon.  But once this is used up, I still have a bottle of Nectarine Mist and another bottle of Sweet Pea.  I heart Bath & Bodyworks!

 

Every day I have to dig through my very big bag with many things for this…  Just goes to show how messy my bag is!

 

 

Every day I also carry my Octopus card with me, even though I might not take the bus or train or tram.  I could use it at the supermarket, convenience stores, fast food joints, etc.   BUT I don’t carry my Octopus card around like that.  I did not pick this design.  It is not me.  I therefore have a small plastic sleeve that covers up totally what the card looks like.  Maybe I will swap this card for my daughter’s when she switches over to the grown-up Octopus card.

That was fun!  This is my first time joining You Capture.  I will most likely be playing along again.

I am in love with your view! Seriously, that is just beautiful. I wouldn't get anything done all day - I would just park myself in front of your window and gaze all day long :D

That view is amazing! I'm so jealous, from my windows I can see a bus stop, a fence and a motorbike repair shop...

That shot from your home is just gorgeous! You are blessed to look at that every day. I am laughing at your daughter picking out your card. I could see me letting my ladies do the same thing :)

I know a certain silly American that might just be a huge fan of Hello Kitty even though she's and adult (meekly raises hand)... lol.... so I am diggin' the card. What is an octopus card??

Love the mini antibac too! I have a few right now that are halloween themed. Plum scented "vampire blood" ones in my stash. :)

Wow! What a view!

I love Bath & Body Works too. Sweet Pea smells so good, but I am also a fan of Cucumber Melon.

That picture reminded me of my landing at the old Kai Tak. I was lucky enough to land there for a transfer a few months before it closed for good.

The ships in the harbor, on that clear day, looked
like toys in a bathtub.
