2 Nov 2105 – And All Souls Day
Fri: running errands and picking up meds at MtE. Tkx to Peggy for lunch at Sophie’s New Green Pastures Cafe**** is by far the best vegetarian restaurant in SIN.
Sat: grocery shopping at the wet market and day in the kitchen chopping. Halloween dinner at CC. Appreciations to Calvin for providing the otah-otah, prawns, beer and wines.
Sun: this weekend is the best time to make ‘Nasi Ulum’ for family & friends – with at least 10 different herbs finely chopped to be consumed raw mixed into cooked rice. All the herbs and spices are there to ward of any demons, dark forces, evils, etc over All Saints Day today and carrying on to All Souls Day tomorrow…
Belated Bday celebrations to Kiera(12), May, Adeline and Ivy. Tkx to Les&Ivy for dinner and to Lee&Adeline for a yummy Tiramisu. Good to catch up with May&Albert too.
SunSun(8) tells me that she prefers to be known as her nickname than Isabelle, so SunSun she will be. How time flies!
Will be taking a walk down some of these places on the link below. These so-called haunted places anywhere in the world usually have the most interesting history and stories. Have been to 9 out of the 10 listed below, so will have to head to Woodleigh MRT, the former Bidadari Cemetary one day soon.
Must admit that I was slightly uncomfortable with during a night visit at Ft Canning Pk some moons ago, but that does not stop me from still visiting. The existing map, now edited was designed by Chan & I when we were working in H&H. So I do know that location inside out! We also designed this brochure with map and info (no more in use) over a decade ago. Kept it as it was my favourite project.
Edited – another interesting SIN Dark Past link
Mon: All Souls Day and may the departed ones RIP and the ones still are find Peace. It is a commemoration of the departed and is observed primarily in the Catholic Church. Its origins date back to European folklore related to customs of veneration practiced worldwide thru’ events like the Mexican Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos) or the Chinese Ghost Festival.
What is the difference between the soul and the spirit???????
Tkx Kirsten for sharing her beautiful misty pix where I took many walks when living in this neighbourhood at Kolsås/Norway. Thoughts of Babs Moe and Helga Aarflot, may they RIP there.
Heart Attack***Freelance graphic designer Yoon (Sunny Suwanmethanon) goes to a doctor for a rash that spreads all over his body. The doctor warns him that he needs to take on fewer jobs to get better, but that proves to be difficult for the workaholic Yoon.
These Thai names are not the easiest names to remember or write! A slow movie where Thai actor Sunny goes quite far in shedding his heart-throb image…
