And we stare into the vast emptiness of the dark sky
and the ferris wheel turns ever so slowly
as if time slowed down
As do our hearts
And they beat as our breaths
But heave a sigh
We sit in a silence so loud
It is deafening
Blinding ourselves with false hope and lies
No longer is there truth when we allow love to die.

There was this abandoned building near the location I was gonna take the bus back to Singapore from. I saw it on the first day and had to go in at least before I left. The walls were covered in graffiti and the space was just awesome in my books. A good enough venue for a show. Anyway, I nearly missed my bus cos I was taking shots of this place. Love.

Another Malaccat

Malacca backstreets


Malacca scenes.

Finally got around to resizing my shots from Malacca. Yup.

Work in progress

Pardon the lack of a better photo, but I couldn't find my card reader, so I snapped this instead with my iphone. This is a work in progress for a show I'm invited to be a part of which will happen in Mid Sept. I'm pretty excited as it will be the first show I will take part in as an artist and not a photographer. I'm a late bloomer, considering I graduated from NAFA ten years ago. It's amazing to recall my journey here, for the changes of interests over the years and then realising that, "Hey you know what, I like this. I love doing this. I love creating and making stuff."

The above piece is made up of strips of book cover fabric, which was used for an in-store display from when I worked at Bookbinders. They were gonna dispose of it, but being the hoarder that I am, I kept it, amongst other wonderful treasure trash. :)

I wrote a short poem and an excerpt of it will be part of the art.

I'm not sure if I could ever produce a work of art that held some political reference or meaning, although I admire my artist friends who are very capable of doing so and produce really awesome art. I'm not saying never, but I've always tried to stay real and organic in my writings and pieces. I'm emotionally driven and lately with the changes in my life, they have spurred much thought and ideas into things I want so much to do. Positively.

* I will eventually get around to changing the above pic to a better one.

The Disconnect.


The family had lunch at this new "Marche restaurant concept" place called Medz which is at the basement of Orchard Central. All mediterranean or inspired food. Not too bad really. The Turkish line was longer than most and it was good. :)

Red Boxes.

Free Parking.

Marina Bay Sands

How things change and build so fast, it only seemed like yesterday that we'd sit at Fullerton Starbucks late into the night til the chattering crowds died down and all was peaceful and Marina Bay Sands was only four stories high with towering cranes and bright floodlights and that's how my Mission Impossible parody came about and how Gojira came to play.
