Sunday quote.

Appropriate quote for this week of festivities, which is really the start of the next 6 weeks of aplenty of food.

When you walk slowly and open your eyes you see signs all around you.

Prevention before intervention

Nobody’s supposed to ignore the law.

Now that I’m back underground, I get to enjoy the adverts. They are a bit different here, no adverts on products but more about the rules and what it is to be a good citizen and live in an harmonious society. Usually they love cartoon characters, this one had more punch.

Better late than never. 1 week to go.

It’s never too late to learn to cook a full Thanksgiving dinner.

I’m enjoying rejoining activities thru the AWA. The more you go the more people to cross path with and the more likely you are to cross path again and again and forming relationships.

Until I decide to go back in my cave 😜

PS: cooking while somebody else did all the prep work and somebody else do all the cleaning. Sign me up again!!!

When you are really proud of your son working on his foreign language….

Then you look more closely and think well whatever keeps him motivated, plus it might come handy someday 😜

NB: he told me he doesn’t have access yet… he needs to pass the other levels before! (Clever marketing DuoLingo!)

Graffiti Singapore style.

Always very civilized.

大爆走 (DaBaoZou) Big explosion/blast….

NB: The whole building was meant to be taken down but it seems its fate might have changed. I’m personally happy because it’s home to my favorite indie movie theater. Each time I go I wonder what the characters mean so I finally did some research and by research I mean attempting to drawn the character into google translate so I could get the pinyin (translation into letters) so I could type it, recognize the character and I finally get the translation!!

Sunday Quote.

When even the mailbox tell you “I’m Possible”

Because Impossible is just I’m possible with the apostrophe missing.

When you walk slowly and open your eyes you see signs all around you.

The question is: Was the bar named before the circuit breaker or was the circuit breaker named after the bar?

Circuit breaker was the official name of our lockdown period in Singapore.

A circuit breaker is an electrical device that trips or opens the circuit when there is an overload or excessive drawing of current in order to protect the electrical”

It’s sure did… it stopped the spread very quickly and we haven’t had any case on the community for weeks (months?)

Answer: the bar was first.

Some things are better left untold.

So I will not tell you how many takes it took to get this “But The Axe Is On The Board” on camera 😉
