Weekend SnapShot #10

Weekend SnapShot

We went to Bugis for a walk. I couldn't help noticing this modern trishaw (3 wheeler transportation) parked at the side of the street. Fixed up with what seems like a motor within the frame of it with a design that almost screams out Harley Davidson!!
Trishaws used to be a form of public transport in the olden days. Currently in Singapore, they are now a mode of slow transport for tourists sightseeing purposes. I also found out that they provide trishaw rides on Sentosa. Imagine a ride around Sentosa? Might be of captivating experience for tourists to be driven cycled around the island in a trishaw taking in all the sights!!


My notebook or is it Mozilla? Which ever it is? My Chinese fonts are viewable once more and I'm more than pleased! I couldn't read any Chinese characters the past couple of months. It was nightmare! Last week, it suddenly worked again. I'm still unsure what caused it to work. But I'm still NOT able to read the Chinese fonts in IE7. *arghz*

Sandy Carlson said...

If it works, paint it purple! That's a wonderful form of transportation. Great shot!

Lynn said...

It comes in purple! First thing that entered my mind was Harley Davidson even before reading your post. Cool, lol.

Carver said...

That is unusual looking. Makes sense though to have a motor and easier on the person transporting the tourists around. Good shot. Hope you have a great weekend.

They offer trishaw rides now around Sentosa? That's fun!! I was there in 1992 and did not experience trishaw ride.
