A Total TaiTai Tale

Tale of a Total TaiTai who was in Beijing & Beyond and is now in Singapore & Surroundings!

Welcome to my little corner of the Web

Starting Was Easy…
Keeping It Going Is Harder.

I show up here every single day and post (at least) one picture…
and it’s been going on since 5th August 2013.

********

This is the follow-up of a little personal blog started in 2006 (!) when we moved to Beijing, followed up by a blog of our time in Norway (but abandoned after 2 years) but…

We are back in the ‘Jing….
Let’s the madness begin.
We are not new at this…
It’s 20+ years in the making:
USA, France, Argentina, Scotland, China, Norway & China (again) are the places we lived.
As for the places we visited… Should I do an A to Z list?!

Update: We left the ‘Jing and move to Sing’…. 20 years and we are still spinning around (with) the world

When your friend tells you: “Let me know when you go to Gardens By The Bay to shoot the Christmas lights”.
Your first reaction is “Well I didn’t know I was supposed to go to Gardens By The Bay to shoot the Christmas lights” then you realize your hubby has work functions two nights this week so come to the conclusion that going to Gardens By The Bay to shoot the Christmas lights might not be such a bad idea after all.

I had my camera and my tripod in my backpack and shot all of my pictures with my iPhone 😂.

Monday Murals.

Last of Yip Yew Chong paintings in the Botanical garden. All painted in May 2018

Ethnobotany Ritual Mural
Flowers and fruits are prominent and symbolic in many Indian festivals, celebrations, and rituals. The fragrance of Jasmine, the glow of Marigold, the sweetness of bananas and the freshness of coconut, all add to a rich potpourri of festive sights and smells.

The American Women Association (AWA) Christmas Luncheon usually is the kick start of the Christmas season extravaganza.

Always a pleasure to reconnect with friends I met at different AWA outings throughout the year.

May the Seasons Greeting begins.

Christmas party season is upon us…
or how I like to call it “I have nothing festive to wear for these temperature” season.

Great visit with the Frenchy group for a Film tour of Singapore

The post WWII years, especially the 1950s, saw Singapore’s golden age of cinema dominated by two movie companies, Shaw and Cathay. Although both these names survive in movie theatres today, only the delightfully nostalgic Shaw studios still exist. In recent years, the movie industry here has enjoyed something of a revival with many young Singaporean directors coming to the fore, helped by the many film festivals we now enjoy.[JanesTour]

Started at the Shaw studios (not in use anymore) stop by the Cathay Art Deco Cinema (& Small Museum) and finished at the Projector (an old movie theater) with a talk by Singaporean director Kevin Kwek.

It’s a miracle.
Every piece fits nicely together… with a little help from the mallet and some clamps 😉
