Reimagined New Classical Painting

Love this painting by Ukranian artist and designer Alexey Kondakov under his ongoing series Art History in Contemporary Life.
Two women looking bored in the back of a dusty book store from
modern day Naples, Italy.

Books from Czech

Yay! My package from Czech finally arrives.


The Moon Is Down

Read this short novel on the second day of the CNY since didn't feel like going out due to heavy rain.

A novel by John Steinbeck fashioned for adaptation for the theatre. The story tells of the military occupation of a small town in Northern Europe by the army of an unnamed nation at war with England and Russia.

The moon is down,
the sun is up.😊

Much In Evidence by Henry Cecil

William Richmond is bald and lame. But that is not his only misfortune. On the very night he has £100,000 in his safe, his home is broken into and he is beaten up. His insurance company pays up - but they are highly suspicious. It would appear that a series of bald and lame men have been making dubious insurance claims. In this hilarious trial novel we see how amazing coincidences can really happen.

Coincidences abound in this book, until you just don't know what to believe. It is farcical and very funny, especially the two robbery cases by men posing as telephone repairmen and the ending, which are so hilarious, make me wanna scream "What a coincidence!".

This copy was 1st published by Michael Joseph Ltd, London in 1957. Bought it at $2 from Epigram Booksale.

It has been said that,
if a million monkeys who could type typed blindly for a number of million years,
eventually the works of Shakespeare would be produced.

I have found a good explanation of this infinite monkey theorem at http://101proofsforgod.blogspot.sg/2012/07/13-infinite-monkey-theorem.html.

Read it, love it.  A beautiful book indeed.

"Anthropodermic Bibliopegy" - the binding of books in human skin.
May be I will become an anthropodermic Bibliopegy aficionado?

Lack of update does not mean I am not reading.  I am on Keith Houston's THE BOOK, A COVER-TO-COVER EXPLORATION OF THE MOST POWERFUL OBJECT OF OUR TIME.  In it, the author reveals that  the paper, ink, thread, glue, and then board from which a book is made tells as rich a story as the words on its pages - of civilizations, empires, human ingenuity, and madness.  Really fascinating, at times with some humorous, if not sarcastic remarks.


Things to pack for my boy's enlistment. Still got some more items to be added.
Simply hope I do not miss out anything.

On Board

This uncle looks so fierce.
These two ladies are friends, yet they rather choose to sit separately with their shopping bags
occupying a seat space each, looking at their mobiles and occasionally speak loudly to each other.
Why can't they sit close to each other with their shopping bags on their laps so others can have the seats,
even the train is not yet full?
I am not surprised nowadays older generations are very savvy.
These couples are trying out the functions on her mobile.
Few nights ago I happened upon 2 sixtyish uncles cycling with iPhones mounted in front as GPS. πŸ‘
 My mum can't even send msg with her smartphone πŸ˜‚
