Photography. Architecture. Design. Parenthood. Triathlon. And everything else under the sun

Singapore

Back.

I’ve been out of circulation for awhile. New job, new apartment, new lifestyle and new hobby – photography. Yeah yeah I should’ve been sharing it here but it became easier to do it via Instagram. Now i feel its time to continue my blog which had been so rudely cut off… Here are some shots that I’ve taken in the intervening months.

it’s a bird… it’s a plane… it’s a… Supertree

The main feature of the Gardens by the Bay, a new National Park in Singapore, are the ‘Supertrees’ which are actually metal, tree-like constructs planted with climbing vines and assorted other plants. Eventually they will become totally overgrown and look more like the real thing. But right now they look like giant high-tech Christmas Trees with all their lights. The funny thing is, despite all the money spent, I like going to the hundred-year-old, original Botanic Gardens than this shiny new thing. As is the case with a lot of new Singapore architecture, these Gardens are still seeking for their character and soul, which can only come in time.


a rose by any other name

“A rose by any other name
Would get the blame
For being what it is–
The colour of a kiss,
The shadow of a flame.”

Was riding at a leisurely pace along the bike path at East Coast Park this morning with a good friend when these strange, flame-colored mushrooms or fungus really caught my eye…


just makes it all worth it

Came home to find this waiting atop my iPad. Such a sweet angel

Orchard Road, being the number one tourist attraction in Singapore, transforms into a festival of lights and decorations in the two months before Christmas. We were walking up the street when we saw this ‘kaleidoscope platform’ where you could step in a box with faceted mirrors all around. Nice effect.
