6 more days to exam!
Using the cliche again, time flies! Will be in my 3rd year this coming Aug (Not sure if that will be my final year though). It feels like I just came back from my cruise holiday not long ago.
Anyway I am resisting the urge to read Lord of the Rings. Actually I bought the book donkey years back but I never made it past 10 pages because I got lost with the English. And to be honest I am the kind of person who watches the movie before reading the book. Somehow it helps me to visualise the imagery, although there will be people saying how the book is better than the movie and other rubbish.
In addition I wasnt that into LOTR until MK posted the MBTI of the characters on FB. The only character I knew before I got entangled in the fandom was this blonde guy with long hair, because my former piano teacher has pictures of him stuck on the studio wall. No prizes for guessing who he is!
Okay random photo update because I will only return until exams are over.
Went to hunt for wall murals around Tiong Bahru last Sunday. These larger than life animals are drawn by Ernest Goh in conjunction with the Penang Tiong Bahru Festival. Reminds me of the Penang Festival where we also saw the works of Ernest Zacharevic painted around the streets of Georgetown. Actually Zacharevic did draw some murals in Singapore and I only saw the girl one.
On a side note both artists are named Ernest! Co-incidental much!
Anyway for those interested in the hunt, there are 5 murals in total. Some are located quite prominently while others you gonna search in the alleyways.
A random bird cage at Tiong Bahru bird corner where a bird singing competition is on-going. The competition does bring back memories among former bird keepers, but I feel that reviving such tradition sounds like a faux. I dont know how to describe it, just that some past elements are no longer present in an organised environment. Lost in history, I would put it.
My new preciouses! (Gollum reference). I bought the black one initially although all look pretty. In the end I returned to the shop a day later and bought the other 2. When you have a hard time deciding which design to get, buy one of each design is available!
Snapped this at someone’s back door while hunting for the murals. Because using flower pots to grow plants is too mainstream.
Okay ending off here!
