Motion Vs Progress

22 Jan 2015 – Happy 13th Bday to #1Grandchild Katy

IMG_5640Mon: Happy Bday to my dear and first Norwegian girlfriend, Kari. We met in Dublin 40+yrs ago and our first-born Linn & Thomas are born in Dublin/Ireland.

Today we are both grandmothers of 6 grandchildren. Am blessed to have Kari in this life’s journey and she has taught me much over the decades. Thank you Kari for being my friend and for being.


Walked around the Esplanade, Fullerton Hotel, MBS Financial area with Minos showing him the underground links and leading to LeVeL33 Craft-Brewery Restaurant & Lounge***where he could enjoy the beers and the view. Lovely breezy afternoon to be on the sitting outdoors on the 33rd floor.


Appreciations to Les&Ivy for dinner at ME@OUE****the only place I know of that serves the best and delicious squid ink brioche rolls. Tkx for the company Clem & Sue and for driving, Sue.

Tue:  felt good with a day of rest. Needed the extra boost of energy to attend CHEOK YukChin, cousin John’s (4th aunt’s 2nd son) wife wake. Never really knew her name until tonight. Now I can finally fill in the correct name in the family tree and may she RIP.


Wed: everything is good and Olai made my day. Enjoy chatting with him on video Skype and time just goes too fast. He is now 3+ and no more the little toddler. Oh I do miss all 6 of them…


Received a notification from wordpress that it is exactly 7yrs ago I started blogging. Time flies! An afternoon with the dentist for a check-up was not too bad. Let’s hope that I can keep this up! Took this pix of the old and new Supreme Counts roofs when guiding Minos about a few days ago.


Posted on FB with this comment – former SIN Supreme Court with beautiful copper dome; now, the space-ship! Glad that the old building is intact and still standing to form quite a contrasting skyline with the new. In Sep the former Supreme Court will be jointed to the former City Hall to become the new National Gallery. Above pix of the two Supreme Courts downloaded.


FB dialogue between Liz, Pris (both living in UK) and I over the new Supreme Court –

Liz O’Regan: What’s that??

Me: this is the new Supreme court…!

Liz O’Regan Progress?

Me: ‘Do not confuse motion and progress. A rocking horse keeps moving but does not make any progress’ – Alfred A. Montapert

Priscilla Hon: A Supreme Court that has an elevated, pedestal-like, panoramic view to keep an eye on everyone. We can see you! .. Symbolism in design?

Me: Big Brother sees you from this S$200mil location…

Thank you to Liz and Pris for their comments. Like these constructive with humour communications 🙂
