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.

Cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.

Familiarity breeds contempt – and children.

I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.

The more things are forbidden, the more popular they become.

If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.

Not every quote is meant to be meaningful. Have fun with life 😉

“buu, I am a girl. I want to have time to do girly things. Paint my nails. Watch Gossip Girls. Read my books and hang out with my girlfriends. I don’t want to be stuck on a game with a whole bunch of hokkien sprouting guys.”

For non-gamers, it is very hard to fathom how much time one can spend on World of Warcraft (WoW). It can take over everything else, even sleep.

I miss life. reading. photography. music. bookshops. hanging out with friends. sleep. fashion. coffee. shoe shopping. monocle.

I look forward to days where I don’t have to rush home and get on the computer.

Goodbye Arianea. Welcome real world.

When God Ran November 26, 2009

Almighty God,
The Great I Am,
Immovable Rock,
Omnipotent,
Powerful,
Awesome Lord,
Victorious Warrior,
Commanding Kind Of Kings,
Mighty Conqueror

And the only time,
The only time I ever saw Him run
Was when He ran to me,
took me in His arms
Held my head to his chest,
said my son’s come home again
Lifted my face,
wiped the tears from my eyes
With forgiveness in His voice
He said son,
do you know I still love you?
It caught me by surprise,
When God ran

The day I left home,
I knew I had broken His heart
I wondered then
if things could ever be the same

Then one night,
I remembered His love for me
And down that dusty road
ahead I could see

It’s the only time,
The only time I ever saw Him run
When He ran to me,
Took me in his arms
Held my head to his chest,
Said my son’s come home again,
Lifted my face,
Wiped the tears from my eyes
With forgiveness in his voice,
He said son,
Do you know I still love you?
It caught me by surprise,
It brought me to my knees
When God ran

I saw Him run to me

And then I ran to Him

Holy One
Righteous Judge
He turned my way
Now I know
He’s been waiting for this day

And then He ran to me,
Took me in his arms
Held my head to Hs chest,
Said my son’s come home again,
Lifted my face,
Wiped the tears from my eyes,
With forgiveness in his voice,
I felt His love for me again

He ran to me
Took me in His arms
Held my head to His chest,
Said my son’s come home again,
Lifted my face,
Wiped the tears from my eyes,
With forgiveness in his voice,
He said son,
He said son,
My son,
Do you know I still love you
Oh!
He ran to me
When God ran

‘there is always something smarter than you.’

life surprises me sometimes.

the collective iq of a group of people, may well be lower than the individual iq of the same group of people.

weird.

i naturally gravitate towards:

the juxtaposition of old and new,

the tension between slow and fast,

and the relevance of the ancient truth versus modern ideology.

 

i am drawn to:

struggles for a better world,

inner demons that threaten to overwhelm,

and the imperfection that makes life what its worth.

 

The end never leaves an impression.

It is the in-progress that fascinates me.

People should enjoy the ride.

The destination is anti-climax.

maybe it is because i am short sighted, and got used to seeing things slightly double 🙂

sometimes not everything in life is clear anyway.
