Aged To Perfection

5 Mar 2018 – But Forgot The Camera

Fri: 196 bus to BedokInterchange and a free shuttle for a shopping trip to Giant&IKEA@Tampines took a whole afternoon. Discovered that there is a FoodCourt@Giant but was not hungry enough to eat there.

Had KwayTeow@Bedok Interchange FoodCentre – personal preference is still the ZionRoad KwayTeow. Clement had the chicken curry-noodle, tasted a bite and it was OK.

Sat: appreciations to cousin Karen for her yummy home-cooked KCH laksa and the delicious roast duck from an auntie in Sibu. Stayed for a short while to catch up as her parents, auntie Ngor/Anna and uncle Kuan could not make it to SIN this time round. Karen’s maternal grandma and my paternal grandma, CHAN SweeNgor were sisters from KCH.

Tkx for great company, Brian&Helen and Leonard. So nice to catch up again, just like the good old days when I first met them 20yrs ago – still looking the same, but have all Aged To Perfection. These lovely young ppl made me feel welcome when I moved back here in 1998. Brian&Helen’s kids are now away in boarding-school and Leo back working in SIN, finally some time together but forgot the camera!

Sun: Thank you for delightful performance@EsplanadeConcourse 

Rit Xu, Gabriel Lee, Joachim Theodore Lim, Jonathan Shin (Lorong Boys) with an adorable boy admiring his percussionist father. Thus ends this 2018 Huayi – Chinese Festival of Arts 华艺节

All members of the Lorong Boys graduated from the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music. After putting up an impromptu performance to commuters in MRT trains in 2014, one of their videos went viral and thus gaining their popularity.

Nice getting to know the boys with a quick bite&drink@Makansutra and a short walk in the area.

It was indeed a beautiful evening. By the time I got off the bus and to my doorstep, the moon was impressively clear, full&bright.

Mon: a pleasant day indoors getting papers&pix organised and finishing left-over foods. Tkx to Garry for sharing this awesome post with amazing wall paintings by JulienMalland (Paris 1972), SethGlobepainter. There are so many good ones, but have decided to download only the above 2 as they inspire me profound messages!

Time extracts various values from a painter’s work. When these values are exhausted the pictures are forgotten, and the more a picture has to give, the greater it is – Henri Matisse
