Block Type


Designed and photographed by Marc Böttler, these alphabets are actually illusions of perspective, viewable only from the photographed angle, with certain blocks stacked high while others layered far into the background. Nice.

Holidaying ......

At last, have spent two days of staycation with my incredible. We went to Universal Studio at Sentosa on Wed (22 Jun) and ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands the next day. Bought a cute Triceratop dinosaur plush toy, 1 gallon bucket of popcorns at a somewhat unreasonably expensive price - 50 bucks (can u imagine!) and tried 2 packs of freeze-dried astranaut foods. Yah! I spent quite a bit but who cares. Most importantly, we have lots of fun.


UNIVERSAL STUDIO @ SENTOSA

My incredible enjoyed the ride inside this pyramid the most.


Anyway, he didn't dare to try this one. Haha!

I had 'Round The World' & 'Bloody Mary' cocktails at this nice restaurant. Felt not enough, but was banned from ordering more by my incredible loh. He said mummy's face red ored.


This is the 50 bucks popcorn.



ARTSCIENCE MUSEUM @ MARINA BAY SANDS
Currently on exhibition : Dalí: Mind of a Genius (14 May - 30 October 2011), Van Gogh Alive (16 April - 6 November 2011) and Shipwrecked: Tang Treasures and Monsoon Winds (19 February - 31 July 2011).
This is my favourite piece of MBS' Art Path. The Wind Arbor @ Exterior of Hotel Atrium. The sculpture consists of 260,000 aluminum metal “flappers” which are mounted on hinges and hung from steel cable so they are free to move independently in reaction to the wind, thus create a shimmering wave.
Pity that I don't have a DSLR with wide angle lens to capture the structures. All shots shown were taken with my phone camera.





At 4th floor, is the permanent exhibition, ArtScience: A Journey Through Creativity.


An installation at Dalí: Mind of a Genius.



The Museum at 7pm.

According to the ethics of an office, introduction is always very important on a first contact like this.

I am Mr.Rico Smith, the Head of the Anti-Crime Unit of the Metropolitan Police London-Uk.

This Official Memorandum is to inform you that we discovered that some officials whom work under the Nigerian Government have attempted to divert your Funds (US$10,500,000) through a back-door channel. We actually discovered this today, through our Secret Agents under the Disciplinary Unit of the Metropolitan Police after we apprehended (Mr. Ali Aeraby) a terrorist suspect.

The mentioned suspect was apprehended at the Heathrow Air-Port early this morning, as he attempted to carry the enormous cash value of US$10,500,000 outside the shores of England. In respect to the money laundering decree of Great Britain such amount of money can not be moved in cash outside England because such attempt is a criminal offense and is punishable under the money laundering act of 1982 of Great Britain. This decree is a globalize law applicable in most developed countries inother to check-mate terrorism and money laundering.

From our gathered information here in this Unit, we discovered that the said Funds in question actually belongs to you (Mrs. xxxxxxxxxxxxx) but it had been purposely delayed because the Nigerian officials in charge of your Payment are into some sort of irregularities which is totally against the ethics of any Payment institution.

Presently, this said Funds valued US$10,500,000 is under the custody of the Paying Bank (HSBC Bank Plc London-Uk) and I can assure you that your Funds will be released to you without a hitch provided that you are sincere to us in this matter. Also, we require your positive co-operation at every level because we are closely monitoring this very transaction inother to avert the bad eggs in our society of today.

Today dated 11th June 2011 we have instructed the Executive management of HSBC Bank Plc London-Uk to Release the said Funds to (Mrs. xxxxxxxxxxxxx) as the certified Beneficiary in question because we have valuable information/records to authentify that the said Funds truely belongs to you.

Be that as it may, you are required to provide us with below listed information (for official verification) via Email: [metropolitanpoliceantidept@gmail.com]

1. First Name, Middle Name and Last Name.
2. Age.
3. Occupation.
4. Marital Status.
5. Direct Telephone/Fax Number.
6. Residential address.

We await your immediate compliance to this official obligation, so that you can be Paid by HSBC Bank Plc London-Uk.

Well, I don't even know that I own such a big fund in the first place. I also don't know that METROPOLITAN POLICE prefers to use a gmail account. ^_^ !

God knows why someone with a little bit of common sense still falls into such boring and scamful trap.

Shop Next Door


Well, I have been extremely lax about posting for quite a while. Haven't read much too due to my hectic working hours, especially for the past few weeks. Only manage to finish another fiction Bones to Ashes by Kathy Reichs. Phew! I really need to take a few days off just to replenish myself.

Have to. Must! Need to spend some quality time with my incredible during this mid-year school holidays.
