iLight Marina Bay 2017

10 Mar 2017 – There Is No Carrot In Carrot Cake

Mon: a day of boring paper-work, but had to be done!

Tue: one of my favourite local snacks from OldChangKee. Movie A Silent Voice***聲の形 Koe no Katachi translated as The Shape of Voice – Japanese anime school drama film which is my 1st. The story revolves around Shoya Ishida, a former delinquent who bullied Shoko Nishimiya, his deaf classmate, alongside his friends back when he was in elementary school… and the consequences are for you to watch!

Wed: Does anyone remember Fear of Flying 1973 novel by Erica Jong? If you do, hope that you have enjoyed it as much as I did then 🙂 Happy International Women’s Day 2017.

Tkx to Aileen for lunch and a walk to SIN Art Museum/SAM, focuses on contemporary art in SIN. Once upon a time, this was St Joseph Institution/SJI, Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus/CHIJ’s brother-school and literally my brother’s Les school too!

The staircase still echos my bro’s footsteps running down those stairs 🙂 The title of this flip-flop display – Not Much To See – HI family&friends would have a kick out of this!

There is an Epigram Books store next to the SAM Museum Shop and There’s No Carrot in Carrot Cake is selling at an amazing sale price S$2per copy. Bought a few copies as gifts for my overseas friends. These NotBooks are also cute gifts to match yours–or your friend’s personality 🙂

I am not forgetful; I am having senior moments 🙂 🙂 🙂

Fri: TGIF and appreciations to Yulis for this spontaneous arrangement to show Level 30@CapitaGreen. Nice idea in the conference room! Reminds me of Svolværgeita=Svolvær Goat, Lofoten/Norway (pix downloaded).

Artemis is a contemporary Mediterranean-inspired rooftop restaurant and bar, fully-booked, so did not get the chance to try. Interesting roof-top view to the formal Asia Insurance Building, now Ascott Raffles Place.

And tkx to Karen (who I stumble on while waiting for Yulis) for showing the gardens on 14floor.

Lunched@Fat Boy Saigon***good soft-shell crab burrito and decent beef pho – soup on the salty side but tasty. Tkx Yulis. A good weekend to all. Next week is going to be another crazy one with all the St Patrick’s Day celebrations ahead – Sláinte!
