She weighs like a tiny pillow!

metal | 8:55 AM




These beautiful leaves and flowers...

...are actually painstakenly cut from metal by an artist whose work was featured at the recent Singapore Binnacle.  And yes, they are only painted only on one side - that is, the one you see in the first picture.

Song For Whoever | 8:09 AM

Beautiful South

I love you from the bottom of my pencil case.
The simplicity of this line
had arrested many hearts in 1989.
I'll sing this song for whoever.
And it's no one you know. :)

Pooh! | 10:05 AM

About 2 weeks ago, after a game of tennis with some friends, I chanced upon some entrepreneurship display at Toa Payoh Central  My current and previous school have set up stalls there too.
 
That's Adam under that Winnie the Pooth wanabe suit posing with the owner of 77th Street stores, Ms. Elim Chew.  

Zul is sulking because he was not chosen to wear the suit.

Okay, Adam agreed to give Zul a HEAD start but that left the former sulking as well. 

Disclaimer : No animals (fake or alive) were harmed during the photoshoot.

the visitors | 9:33 AM

Being my own boss and empoyee now, I just miss the camaraderie I used to have with colleagues.  Well, I still do teach part-time.  But you know, it's never the same when you plunge with all hands and feet and every living pore into the working environment - not that I am slacking now of course.  :) 

Here's some of my colleagues from my current workplace and

...some from my previous school.  They had dropped by over the last 2 weeks to catch up and spy on my new pad.   

Well, after all the food and drinks are disposed of, I do meet another regular visitor who's been picking on the leftovers.  I am still thinking of a name for this little critter.  Any suggestions?

she is brain-dead | 9:04 AM

She loves you very much.  I'm sure she wants you to have it.  

The latest episode of Grey's Anatomy features a father in dilemma.  A patient waiting for a donor heart himself, little did he realise that he would have to take up the organ from his own daughter who had met a tragic accident on Halloween Day.  

I had caught this episode yesterday.  What was disconcerting was that just on Tuesday, an ex-colleague called me to inform me that an ex-student had met with an accident while riding a motorbike.  The 21-year-old is now on life support because from what I understand, she is brain-dead.  Today, the family will turn off the machines.    

Fiction meeting reality.  The loss of a loved one hits home dearly.

I fed a child! | 1:59 PM

3SA, Manila Trip (3-9 Nov)
St. Andrew's Secondary

At Brookside Village, we visited the pre-kindergarden where the Singapore students presented an action song to the little ones.   



Thereafter, a group of us joined in the feeding session.  

Soon enough, we were tasked to scoup soup and rice for the kids.  

It was quite a challenge to ladle enough for each child and also for the line of kids which never seem to end. 

Apparently, the other children from the village, which is made up of families of settlers who had previously lived in the slumps, also came along to get a share of free lunch. 



The best bit was teaching some of my former students to feed the children.  They did not believe me when I told them that I have never done this before.  Believe me.  I have not fed a child before in Singapore.    




Initially, most of the Singapore students felt inadequate at the task.  After some encouragement, it was really heartwarming to see them teach and encourage their friends at the same task.  :)
