The weather for the past 2 days in Singapore has not been so sunny with formation of dark clouds and followed by heavy rain. Nevertheless, i still managed to capture some spectacular sunset at the end of the island.
I think this is really one of the things and feelings that i love to do & have - by enjoying an awesome sunset on the beach while the wind is blowing through my hair. I feel so at peace. So relaxed and calm. And for those few moments, i feel as if i am unstoppable.
Watching the sun going down is like a reflection of how our own life has a time line. The hands of time can never be turned back, so we have to appreciate every single moment we have because we will never get another chance to relive that moment again.
And that's what watching the sun going down has taught me.
For those who are not aware, this Punggol beach is probably the least commercialised beach in Singapore and it also happened to be a historic site that was used for battling weapons during the World War II.
Construction work is at a short distant away from the river bank. A dam's gate is being built across the river and workers are ferried to and fro by small boats to the opposite site.
Sunset at Punggol beach is so peaceful and calming.
Each sunset is never the same, differs each day and makes you feel like you must see it every single day. You can try taking a walk on the beach in the morning, afternoon, sunset, or at night with the sky full of stars...it always feels different and you will be surprised and impressed how much nature has to offer.

It's amazing the way the sun goes down. Sometimes it will make you cry. Sometimes it will make you feel hopeful. Sometimes it will give you analogies with in your life.
Everybody at the beach was aware that the sun was going down, so they have all stopped. Stopped everything they were doing, just to watch that sun go down. People stopped to take pictures and videos, people stopped to hold one another. People stopped just to watch. I stopped and was amazed, amazed that it was so emotional.
