I should have seen it coming...
The view of the sea at East Coast was great! But what happened prior to this wasn't.
Well, I had sustained cuts on my knees and arms after mysteriously tumbling over at the stretch right after the hawker centre. It happened so suddenly that I was truly caught off guard. Given the strategic location, this being the holidays and the hour being near dinner time, I did receive stares from the numerous people around. No one had laughed because my tumble was rather abrupt and pretty dramatic. After my fall from grace, I picked myself up quickly and bladed away from the maddening crowded.
It was when I had sat down at a stone bench by the beach that I realised why I had received bewildered looks from passing cyclists and joggers. Thank God someone had invented the sunglasses in this time and age! Given also that I had not had a major fall for donkey years, I decided to let the wounds bleed and /or clot naturally until I got home - 2 hours later! Haha!
