Niece Patricia brought along 2 friends, Priscilla & Jennifer visiting us Christmas 1990 in FL/USA. Today Jennifer is in SIN visiting her family. Appreciations to her for taking time calling to arrange a meeting. Lunched on frog legs & raw fish in Chinatown where the CNY decorations are in place to welcome the year of the Snake.
Walked via Ann Siang Hill to Urban Redevelopment Authority/URA to see the scale model of SIN and now happy to see that the updated model includes the Green Corridor. Very impressive, can even see block 46, marked in the pix to be able to find it. If interested to view, click on the image to enlarge it!
Ended this lovely day at LeVEL 33@MBFC to taste their craft beer, quite good! Safe journeys and good luck to Jennifer who will be returning to Canada this weekend.
Amour****Georges and Anne are in their 80s who are cultivated, retired music teachers. Their daughter lives abroad with her family. One day, Anne has an attack followed by a further stroke and her condition worsens. The couple’s bond of love is severely tested. Painful effects of ageing and dementia on a blissful married couple. Brilliant acting with hardly any unnecessary music except when it was relevent.
Parental Guidance***Artie & Diane are left alone to care for their grandkids. Grandpa’s old-school methods collide with their modern ways of no punishments, but lack of fun ways. Even as the once-orderly household begins to spin out of control, the grandparents employ some unexpected tactics to win them over and teach them to be kids…
Taxi! Taxi!***a SIN production about the trials and tribulations of a retrenched scientist, Prof Chua, as he turns to taxi driving after several failed job attempts. Along the way, he befriends a veteran taxi driver, Ah Tau. The two men, who appear to be polar opposites of each other in every aspect. But eventually find themselves interdependent and influencing each other in ways that are least expected
