Hubby back from France means goodies for me ;-).

Oh the irony.

Well I guess going out to pick up some ice cream counts as “Outdoor Work”. If only I had known earlier.

Stavanger May 2012 & Singapore March 2019.

Summer in Norway Vs Winter in Singapore 😉

In every country I’ve lived I have had that ONE friend.

Emily was that friend when I lived in Pau, France for less than a year. I always refer Pau as my hardest expat posting (even though I wasn’t an expat and she wasn’t either a “true” expat) but she made it so fun. She moved back to London a year or so later and we’ve kept in contact. We don’t see each other often or even talk that much. We keep up with our current life with comments on each other Instagram (she gave up Facebook) and DM if we think something is up. We met up once in London and then she had a stop in Stavanger a few years later. This time the cruise ship (she gives cross stiches classes on cruise ship every once in a while) had a stop in Singapore. We spend a great time together and it was like no time has passed. #TrueFriendship

To my other “that one friend” (you know who you are!) I cherish our friendship more than you might know, whether we talk all the time or not.

Woodworking Workshop Wednesday – Project #4: Woodturning Bowl

Last Wednesday Woodworking Workshop posting

J and I did a little one-day woodworking project together. This one involved woodturning and we ended up with a little wood bowl that he gifted to his dad.

I’m in my photography period.

One day during the Plastikophobia Project we were having a break and talking when I got a notice on Facebook saying that Elia Locardi was coming for a meet up in Singapore. I asked Benjamin If he knew Elia.

Turned out not only did he know him (he showed me photos they took together in Bhutan) but the videographer Elia was traveling with (Valentina in the picture) has worked with Benjamin before and should have worked on Plastikophobia if she hadn’t been booked by Elia. Small world.

It was nice meeting Elia and his crew and spending a few hours chatting.

Monday Murals – Ernest Zacharevic‘s Jousting Painters.

It seems that Ernest painted all of his murals in Singapore in 2014. All were legally painted (after all it’s Singapore and graffiti is illegal and taken very seriously). This one is near Joo Chiat.

Ok very last post on Plastikophobia.

Another video this one from the ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (of Singapore) with some of their extra footage (mix with some from Benjamin’s video).

Another bonus point if you see me 😉

One last photo created inside the Plastikophobia installation.

I need a new hobby so I have another source of photos to post on Tumblr 😂

Apparently, Facebook and Instagram were down today… well thanks to time zone it all happened while “Asia” was sleeping so we didn’t suffer as much as America 😉

But police in California got so tired of getting calls about the outage that the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s public information office was forced to take to Twitter to tell off people for wasting police time.

#Facebook is not a Law Enforcement issue, please don’t call us about it being down, we don’t know when FB will be back up!
