Tue: Bølgen***The Wave – even though awaited, no-one is really ready when the mountain pass of Åkneset above the scenic narrow Norwegian fjord Geiranger falls out and creates a 85 meter high violent tsunami. A geologist is one of those caught in the middle of it…

An epic tale based on the 1934 tsunami which killed 40 people in Norway’s Tafjord. The disaster was triggered when a mountainside collapsed, causing huge damage and casualties in a number of villages along Norway’s fjords. Geologists believe Norway may be overdue for another such natural catastrophe!!!!

Wanted to watch this movie here at Colosseum – 5mins walk from May’s where there will be no doubt that it is not dubbed or cut. But NOK90 S$15 is on the expensive range and even more in the evenings NOK150 S$26. Unable to remember the last movie watched in Norway???

Wed: last day of Sep with the blue sky and beautiful autumn colours. Random pix from my daily walks which I will miss when I return to hazy SIN 😦

Some filming was happening after delivering Olai to his daycare. Random sculptures on the way to the town center.

Saw this wooden zebra at GlasMagasinet (the history of this place dates back to 1899) and it is the exact same zebra L&M played with when they were kids. It belonged to their dad when he was a kid. Now it is in Olai’s toy collection and believe it or not, the price tag on it is nearly NOK700 S$117, considering that it has been played with by 3generations, then it has been well worth it. Wonder how much it was when new then???

Tkx Leng for taking time to catch up in the midst of her busy schedule. The pix of us is from 2014 but could have been 2015 as we were both in the same outfits – for real! (I can already hear KK ‘what a monotonous wardrobe!’). How time has gone by since we first met for the Ft Canning project in SIN before she had kids. Her boys Marcus and Victor are now 8 & 2.

Thu: one more cuppa with Ingrid until we meet again in 2016. The sunset tonight is just spectacular with the clouds and the colours changing every second.

Red sky at night, shepherd’s delight. Red sky in the morning, shepherd’s warning’ first appeared in the bible in the Gospel of Matthew. It is an old weather saying often used at sunrise and sunset to signify the changing sky and originally known to help the shepherds prepare for the next day’s weather. Despite there being global variations in this saying such as ‘Red sky at night, sailors delight. Red sky in morning, sailors warning’, the scientific understanding behind such occurrences remain the same.
