It was 26 degrees today and I was melting in my room. I have no fans or airconditioning here so it gets kind of stifling.
But that’s the trade off for awesomely lovely weather.
So anyway. Here’s the breakdown of a nice, lazy summerish Saturday here to make everyone back home jealous.
Went to Ponte Tresa (across the border in Italy, a 20 minute train ride away from Lugano) with Jun Hua in the morning. That place brings ‘nua’ to a whole new level.
In the afternoon, pedaling on the lake with USIHome friends.
In the evening, off to the free open-air concert in the city centre with average to poor music [local bands], lots and lots of troublesome teenagers, and people whom you might actually like to be friends with had they been sober (but were unfortunately, not). It wasn’t particularly enjoyable but it seemed like the whole of under 30 Lugano had decided to be there that night.
So now the pictures will do the talking.

One quiet evening, the boyfriend and I headed to Timbre Mobile… currently situated at ECP at the old golf driving range in between Marine Cove and Big Splash.
ADDRESS: 920 East Coast Parkway, Parkland Golf, Singapore 449875.
OPENING HOURS: Open on Tuesday to Sunday 6pm onwards except Sundays open from 6pm-10.30pm. Closed on Mondays. Call 96565711 (after 5pm, only for Timbre Mobile).
The place was generally empty.
We’re happier than we look. I think that’s our stoned, chill-out face. It’s the kind of face you tend to get when you’ve been together (albeit on and off here and there) for three years and you’ve settled into being comfortable burping / sitting improperly / eating uncouthly around each other.
Quite unlike the other couple who was at Timbre Mobile.
Jason said he knew the guy, but the guy didn’t acknowledge him. So officially we don’t know them okay?
They were 5 days from their 1 month anniversary (according to his song dedication)…
Yes I was shooting over my boyfriend’s shoulder.
And Pam and Icantrememberhisname were playing that night… There were so few people that all 3 of our requests were sung – even though they couldn’t sing most of our first choices.
And oh the set-up is pretty cool. The tables and chairs are lightweight processed chipped wood, and the table top is actually just a sheet of black acrylic. The entire Timbre Mobile set-up apparently fits into 4 shipping containers for ease of transport when they move to another park in a few months.
You can find out more about Timbre Mobile at their website.
I’m sure the place gets livelier over the weekend.
The seats do get a lil’ bit uncomfortable though, so make sure you come in comfortable clothes.
