18 Oct 2015 – Connecting More Dots…
Fri: appreciations to Anita for the invite to Journey East 20th Birthday. The last visit was 2+yrs ago. https://amylamsg.com/2013/05/07/journey-east/
The new line of design by Francesca Lanzavecchia & Hunn Wei with their PLAYplay collection is a cute concept. My grandchildren would like it.
Some of the art pieces there are quite delightful.
Beautiful flowers providing some serenity!
Great to catch up with Anita and Philip. Such a small world – not only is he a neighbour but was in ACS back in the 1960s and in the same class with the bunch of guys I used to hang around with, Gerald and co! Also being involved with banks in his youth, he is quite familiar with Kwong Lee Bank! Thanks Philip for crossing my path and for the ride.
Had a great time meeting and chatting with new young people.
And last but not least, Ginger the REAL-LIFE mascot and not one of those hand-waving statue! did not seemed too pleased with the crowd invading the territory but being a well-behaved mascot, there were no hissing or scratching 🙂
A Maneki-neko in Chinese style. The maneki-neko (Japanese: 招き猫 ?, literally ‘beckoning cat’) is a common Japanese figurine (lucky charm, talisman) which is often believed to bring good luck to the owner. In modern times, they are usually made of ceramic or plastic.
Am no fan of cats, especially this one!
Sat: trying to unpack is not as bad if only the eyes could stay open! Tkx Clement for saving this newspaper article in my absence. Was surprised to see that the pix and the article took up a quarter-page in The Sunday Times-13 Sep. Now I see that the whole page shows that it is part of the SG50-A Look Back At The Events – appreciations to HO Ai Li for her delightful write-up.
Just before taking off for Norway, received a call from Ai Ling who wanted to interview me as she read my blog posting on the SIN Sports School. Suggested for her to contact Jovina Tseng who was the top swimmer in those days, but looked like she did not do that??
Sun: cleaning up FB pix and looks like a HKG friend RY had some fun on my behalf 🙂 🙂 He is so good at photo-shop that he got many of my FB friends believing this 🙂 🙂 🙂 Tkx RY for the nice collage (this one must have taken time to create) and the pix of Mark Zuckerberg with me! Am blessed with humourous people around me.
This evenings PSI reading is 160-180. Was out and about for a short time earlier visiting with Les&Ivy. The combination of jet-lag with this haze are giving me headaches and heat-rashes. Cannot imagine what it was like when the readings were 200+. Haze pix downloaded from various sites, not about to go outdoors in these conditions…
