26 Aug 2015 -With Tasmanian Night
Fri: admitted bro Steven into SGH as he fell last night and again this morning. Memories of when Les broke his leg playing soccer in the1950s. Mother and I visited him in SGH then and how time has changed this hospital! The clock tower is one of the few buildings which I still recognize!
Appreciations to Calvin, staff & friends at CC for a Tasmanian evening to start the SIN Night Festival. Great to see such a good turn-out. Tkx Sebastian and Yoshie for the chats.
Sat: this beautiful piece of tree trunk is located at a walking path by the police station car-park between Neil and New Bridge Rd towards SGH. Another recently chopped down tree not far from the one on the walking path, but on a different and higher wall. Also a tree that is still alive but not sure for how long and what will happen to it since this is on State Land…
Amazing stretch on Neil Rd with 3 different stages of architecture-style – the shop-houses, older and newer HDBs…
Sun: SIN Night Festival is over for now but continues on Fri28 and Sat29 Aug. Another trip to SGH. Somehow hospital visits are quite a downer and to cheer myself by making a wine cork-board at CC. Used up mine and CC’s collection of corks for now and still unable to complete the area needed – to be continued…
Mon: helping out with the CC sales on the ground floor of Velocity@Novena – a good turn-out for the first day of the week-long sale.
Thank you Thomas for a yummy dinner and good company – quite a name for a kitchen and bar, PIGSFLY***but when you have had enough shots, pigs can certainly fly :-)
Tue: another good turn-out at Velocity. Had to leave early to meet with Sue, Ting and CH for a movie 7 Letters***SIN most illustrious directors have gathered their creative storytelling and film making talents in a one-of-a-kind project celebrating Singapore’s 50th year.
7 Letters represents seven heartfelt ‘love letters’ to Singapore, capturing each of the directors’ personal and poignant connection with the place they call home. The seven stories tell of our heartland and its people through tales of lost love, identity, inter-generational familial bonds and tensions, unlikely neighbours, and even references to traditional folklore.
