It looked like a storm was about to happen.
I saw her on my way to work. The music from her transistor radio was so loud it filled the quiet morning air. She was carrying a small umbrella in her other hand.
Our eyes met. She was fair and thin, and had a weathered look about her. I smiled at her but she had turned her head so quickly that I could not see if she caught my smile.
As I walked on I could still hear the music. It was Bach's Goldberg Variations.
In that moment, as I walked on, I felt happy and peaceful.
She was all equipped for the storm.

The English language name Singapore comes from its Malay name Singapura, which is believed to have been derived from Sanskrit meaning "Lion City". Singa comes from the Sanskrit word siṃha (सिंह), which means "lion", and pūra (पुर) means "city" in Sanskrit and is a common suffix in many Indian place names. This legend of Singapura was made for the children who visit the library where I work.
