We were Soldiers

  Here’s my review and insights on the movie “We were soldiers”… It’s based on a true story of heroism and courage that took place in the Vietnam War. It started with narration on how does one tell a story? Which angle of the story? Where does the story begin? It’s also amazing that Colonel Hal […]

HOME

Singapore has changed so much the last 2 decades. In a span of 20 years, we see places like Marina Bay blossoming into a garden. This is what our founding father – Mr. Lee Kuan Yew envisioned – to have a “City in the Gardens”. With the population reaching more than 5 million, and a […]

Wicked of Oz

Having loved the magical worlds of Narnia and Middle-Earth; I was spellbound by the untold story of the witches of Oz. The reason I was changed when I met Elphaba was the fact that it was original and very close to the human truth – that all things is not what it seems. Love is […]

Waking up

There are some things that experience a lone cannot express. If our creative work gets too comfortable… it is probably time to shake us up again. The function of creativity goes beyond concepts. If we walk across the same room with four different visualizations, the perception of that room is different. Our interpretation, intuition, cognition […]

Cars that caught my attention in New York

There was this street where I found an interesting replica of the Fiat 500! But it is only in shape. Its actual purpose of being on the pavement was decorative. It’s a flowerpot! The car park lot was another interesting concept. Don’t really know why there is a need to elevate the car, since there […]
