Pebbles~

...While walking a few blocks to my next appointment,
I spotted these kids dancing & skipping along the pebble walkway...
they made me smile ear2ear~
hmmm...wonder why do most adults stop doing this in public?
Anywayyy...
As beautiful as they are, those pebbles were not so easy on my high heels...
I think I was walking more like a clumsy penguin!
( extra smiles! )

The worst is when your heel gets caught in a gap in the sidewalk--yikes! :) Those kiddos are so cute though, and you're right--kids are so uninhibited . . . sad that most folks grow out of that as we get older.

We would all be better off if we would think like a child...and not take life so seriously.

I can't imagine walking on those pebbles in heels. :) A passer-by would be scooping me up off the ground.:)

Have a great week darling! OxOX

I hate hate hate those pebbles! because you can't walk on those with heels, and that is exactly the reason why grown up do not dance like that on those pebbles :P

This is so cute!

I don't wear heels, but I think it is because I'm extremely tall.
I wish some adults would show the inner kids in them. I skip along the walkway, and people just glare! haha



LOVE!

Toothfairy,
I don't hate those pebbles, I should have just taken off my shoes & walk barefooted! ...and get a free foot massage/reflexology! hah!!

Tywo,
admire your spirit!

Bob said...

drollgirl said...

But I love that you tried!

Jan said...

I think we'd call them cobbles over here - but that could be just me.
Maybe we could start an international skip to work day
TO ... there's no way I could skip back !

Shaddy said...

Oh dear. I can see why crossing those stones does pose a problem when wearing high heels. How did you manage without falling head over heels?

Kristin said...

Awwwwww, that is just precious! We should all act like kiddos from time to time!

Summer {Bisfor...} said...

i will admit this to you...

i still skip.

Seriously, to appreciate things like children do...
Also why are there pebbles on Orchard? It should be clean there!

Vicky said...

I want to know where are their parents?
;P

Dustjacket Attic said...

Yes I'd probably injure myself if I tried that now....so lovely to see the kids enjoying themselves.

I did this for a client in his shower against my better judgment. I hate it. I think it hurts...he loves it! That's what makes the world go round, I guess.

Dear Chic & Cheap Living,
err...I think you need to explore Singapore more often darling...it's your home at the moment right? this pebble walkway is not far from Plaza Singapura- Dhoby Ghaut MRT.

So true! we must cherish the 'inner-child'

Phoenix said...

I think kids are so much less inhibited - and as adults we are always trying to get back to that state!

Macy Dawn said...

Ha ha. I would be in the same shape if I were to try to conquer a walk across those pebbles in my heels! :)
