It came to me the other day:
Were I to die, no one would say,
“Oh, what a shame! So young, so full
Of promise — depths unplumbable!”

Instead, a shrug and tearless eyes
Will greet my overdue demise;
The wide response will be, I know,
“I thought he died a while ago.”

For life’s a shabby subterfuge,
And death is real, and dark, and huge.
The shock of it will register
Nowhere but where it will occur.”

And the birds came to roost in jurong...

Birds in Jurong
my workplace is indeed a haven for pretty little birds.. and i guess it also speaks for how "ulu" (i.e. godforsakenly- out-of-the-way) the place is... haha.. pictures taken from behind glass panel, out of my 2nd floor office window ...

Bird id: Correct me if i am wrong: left is a Yellow vented Bulbul(Pycnonotus goiavier); right is an Olive-backed Sunbird (Nectarina jugularis) Oriental White-eye (Zosterops palpebrosus).. thank you jon! but mine doesn't look as yellow as the ones i find on the Internet nor have this patch of white under its wings... and also the beak of my bird looks a little longer and not as straight...umm.... bird id is so not easy!!
