Checked out the William Farquhar Collection of natural history drawings at the National Museum of Singapore on Sunday. The drawings were fantastic, very meticulously drawn, of flora, fauna, and animals. I got a bird drawing from the museum shop to add to my collection!

Hey, this song made me think of you. That amusement park by the pier we'll go one day.
It's my favourite song of the moment, by Shout Out Louds off their new album Our Ill Wills.


It's possible (remix)

Which do you prefer?

And...keep your chin up dear. It's possible.

Last weekend, I went aboard a cruise with mummy, cousin Bridget and my aunt. The cabin was comfy and pretty spacious.

The adults made quite a killing at the casino, but all the smoke left us gasping and heading to the deck for fresh air.

Some tea, a quick nap, and a long chat on the deck.

Who's this girl? That has so captured the attention and imagination of The Sart that he has shot her no less than 4 times, and still counting?

From this very first shot, I was moved. It was the shot that got me leaving my very first comment on The Sartorialist. I wrote something about that insouciance.
Her faraway gaze made me feel like I had caught a glance of a beautiful stranger on the street and stumbled upon her at a private moment.

Then I saw this pic at the Facehunter. The austerity of the turtleneck black dress juxtaposed against those crazy printed tights is a marvelous sight.

And then, in quick succession came these shots from The Sart and by now, my curiosity knew no bounds. Who's this mysterious ingenue - the moody intellectual when she puts on her black plastic-rimmed glasses, the regular Amelie with a cheeky smile and all manners of a teasing look in her eyes?

Depending on the weather, he imagines you in one of those cotton dresses of yours with flowers on it or in faded blue jeans and a thick woolen button up cardigan over a checked shirt, drinking coffee from a mug, looking through your tortoiseshell glasses at a book of poetry while it rains.

I lean my head slowly to the side, reflect on the camellia on the moss of the temple, reflect on a cup of tea, while outside the wind is rustling the foliage, the forward rush of life is crystallised in a brilliant jewel of a moment that knows neither plans nor future, human destiny is rescued from the pale succession of days, glows with light at last and, surpassing time, warms my tranquil heart.
