It's nice to look at things from a different perspective once in a while. Much like putting yourself at the top of a high building, and upon looking down/around you start to appreciate things you've never taken notice of previously. Penguin and I decided to spend one afternoon at his apartment building's rooftop to watch the sunset at the fall of dusk. And, while we're at it, took to admire the beautiful things that surround the little neighborhood we live in. From across the building, we see below an old man tending to his pet turtles, the oddest and most curious thing to see. Further below is the long-lived jockey club that was once a big entertainment source to old Macau folks; I could never bear to walk pass by from below because of the obnoxious smell of the horses and feces. And then there's the view from afar of what made Macau a city that it's known for; humongous complexes in the reclaimed area known as Cotai, housing most of the well-known hotels and casinos. From above, it's all a spectacular sight.
But there's nothing more compelling in summer days than to bask in the glaring sun, and then slowly watch as it disappear from the horizon. In an instant, everything is transformed. Lights start to turn on from every household and what beauty you see during the day is emphasized by the gleaming nightlights. Even the dullest looking skyscrapers come to life.
It's a rare thing but I wish I'm able to look at things from another perspective more often. I think it's really a great way to appreciate everything that I have around.
