Changi’s Jurassic Mile

Earlier today, I did a 28km bike ride that took me to the Changi Jurassic Mile. This art installation was launched in late 2020 with a series of dinosaur sculptures set along the Park Connector that runs along the side of Changi Airport. There are several ways to get there.

Guardian of the Chilli Plant

It looks like my Chilli Plant has it’s own little guardian! One of my previous chilli plants had a bad case of mealy bugs. I am hoping that the presence of this diminutive dragon’s cousin will keep parasites and bugs away, and help keep my plants healthy!
