someone once casually mentioned this to 3 of us:

Is work very stressful? The frequency of you guys using the f word has increased quite dramatically.

I actually think it is the best word to express constant frustration in a civilised controlled manner.

someone can disagree.

great sounds from Camera Obscura – picked up the cds from Books Actually which is one of my most favourite bookstores in Singapore, and puts the joy back into browsing bookstores 😉

you can try grooveshark if you want to listen to some of the songs

Which city offers the best quality of life:

Munich. I enjoy the perfect blend of contempories and historics, parks and open spaces, and the small allies and corners that hide the most interesting shops. The pace of the city is optimal.

Is this also your favourite city?

I don’t have one. I like to think that I can uncover the essence of each place I go.

What are your favourite design features in other cities?

Roof gardens in New York City.

The straight view along St Kilda Road to the Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne City.

Contemporary Art Centre in Melbourne.

Millenium Park in Chicago – specially the Laurie Garden.

The drains that run within the city in Freiburg.

If you could make one change to the urban fabric, what would it be?

Have fun decorations along the sidewalks, building walls, shelters and bus stops to liven up the space.

On a personal level, what is essential to quality of life?

Creativity and imagination.

then Fresh air. ample green space. great coffee. good bookstores. safe bicycle lanes. pedestrian sidewalks.
