The many faces of Choa Chu Kang Park

The many faces of Choa Chu Kang Park
A STOMPer would like to share these pictures he took at Choa Chu Kang Park with fellow STOMPers.

In an email to STOMP today (May 17), the STOMPer says:

"These pictures of the sun setting were taken at dusk at the Choa Chu Kang park connector, which links Bukit Gombak and Choa Chu Kang Park.

"The setting sun casts an orange glow across the sky as the sun slowly sank below the horizon. Many birds flew home to roost for the night.

"In another picture, you'll see a small tree bearing green fruits known as camias (Averrhoa bilimbi). The fruit has a smooth skin and is full of juicy pulp. The fruit can be eaten raw but is usually used to make sambal, pickles and chutney. It is also added to fish curry to provide acidity, and can be used to make jam if sugar is added.

"In the last picture, you'll see a decapitated carcass of a brown bird lying on the ground. It was badly mauled by some cats which were seen loitering near a block of flats beside the Park connector.

"As a foul odour was emitted, it was obvious that the bird had been killed many hours earlier.
