I got impatient from the wait & was wondering how come i got 'time starved & do something' voices in my head instead of just do nothing & watch the rain. Doing nothing ain't easy in S'pore where people are conditioned to speed-walk fast, walk up escalator(escalator not fast enough!) etc.
During weekends where parks get crowded the relax feeling is gone to a large extent. Worst is probably east coast park. Riding there while swerving to avoid people & other riders & skaters kills the mood for a relax ride.
I find it hard to strike up a conversation with other riders as the topic mainly revolves around upgrading bicycle parts. I'm more keen on growing my $$ & my entry level roadbike is for commuting purposes hence mindset is different from them. For commuting uses, we don't like to upgrade parts & tend to keep addons to a minimal mainly due to scare of theft(after having 1 stolen which is darn heartpain).
