4 February 2016 I visited Dr Y C Wee at his home and took several pictures of some of the many plants he grows. Dr Wee is a retired professor of botany at NUS who also founded and runs the Bird Ecology Study Group (BESG). It was interesting to hear about some wildlife encounters he’s had over the years. Thanks for your hospitality YC!

5 November 2015 I visited Pulau Ubin with Ji Young and Victoria that afternoon, after a brief spell of rain. As luck or fate would have it, we made the acquaintance of Nicholas, an Ubin resident, who was kind enough to take us round the island! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Nick!

7 December 2014 I stayed at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel for 2 nights and visited their famed infinity pool on the 57th floor and observation deck, where you can get stunning 360° views of the surrounding Gardens By The Bay, Singapore Flyer, Central Business District, and even outlying islands!

3 May 2013 I shot these while visiting the town centre nearest my home. This reminds me of what Singapore used to be like in the ’80s. I probably like that period best of all. This place wasn’t so densely populated back then, and though things were less “advanced” as they are now, life was better because we had more space and less competition for resources.

27 April 2013 – Stills I took when an episode of “The Awakening” (“雾锁南洋”) aired on TV in the afternoon as a tribute to Huang Wenyong (黄文永), who passed away last Saturday. “The Awakening” was the first local Chinese drama serial I watched… back in 1984 when I was 5 years old! Huang Wenyong was among the first local actors I came to know of. 愿你在天之灵安息!

18 March 2012 Various bits and pieces from my study room, mainly the walls. All the items are snailmail sends from my friends and penpals.

Some of the photos in this entry are available as postcards from my Zazzle shop here: http://zazzle.com/piktureshoppe (look for the “I Love Snailmail” series).



11 November 2011 Seafood in a local supermarket near my place. Nobody was buying it. The amount of wastage that occurs on a daily basis throughout our world is beyond lamentable.
