It is so nice to stumble upon a big, grassy area in town where we could potentially have a picnic. I don’t know if it’s always as crowded as it is in the photo, though. The photo was taken during the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations a couple of Sundays ago, so there might have been more people out than there normally would be. That said, my guess is that, in general, on Sundays and public holidays, it could get crowded. That’s when most of the foreign domestic helpers are off and it’s such a great area for them to gather and hang out with their friends. Between having a picnic with their friends here in this nice, green space, under the open skies, by the water and parking themselves on concrete plazas or the sides of office buildings, it’s a no-brainer. I am glad that the city planners have seen fit to provide more green spaces for the public, instead of developing the land for more high rises.
