My friend and I took some time off to have an evening walk in the Heng Hua Memorial Garden in Sibu. (Seduan Lane 6 near Sungei Merah)
It is a very pleasant garden with quite a long walking path around it. The small river by one side of the garden could be filled with nice water. But it is slightly dried up and one can see the black oil slicks which was not really that pleasant.
The roofed basketball court was actively used by young Jeremy Lins.
There was a brilliant sunset and the golden hour gave me a good opportunity to snap some lovely photos...
There were many different races of people enjoying the evening sunshine and the clean air besides keeping healthy and maintaining good relationships with families and friends.
A young boy even came out with a very expensive dog giving the whole garden a vibrant ambience.
There is this man cleaning up the garden rather expertly. If he is only a volunteer cleaner the government must give him a star for his effort!! The time was almost 6 in the evening and sun was catching the leaves turning them golden.
Then I sort of slowly move around to face him to get another shot quietly. When he saw my camera he quickly buttoned up and gave me a good smile allowing me to take a nice photo of him. He said in Foochow "Wear my shirt better!"(Yi reng shun hor la)
Here he is all buttoned up...my Foochow Gentleman in a Heng Hua Garden in Sibu.....
He then continued with his cleaning work. I thanked him with a wave and a nod. I hope he is delighted by this very captivating photo of him. Next trip back to Sibu I will pass him some prints.
He is the kind of people our community needs to keep our gardens clean and our spirits up!! And living up to LI or propriety . (from Confucius).We should find ways to thank him and his friend for their good work and setting such good examples.)
