A Teochew Lullaby

"the window of Kopitiam Hougang Mall, on a rainy morning a year ago. a Teochew lullaby that coos a bustling HDB estate to sleep."

Castle Keep, Newcastle

oh, i'm sorry for the lapse in updates again, i was too busy revelling in the fact that i'm no longer an undergraduate. now, am chatting online with the BFG erik who's studying for his exams in Newcastle and randomly browsing through some photos.

this is from the window of Castle Keep which i visited with derek, another exchange student at Newcastle. i remember we did this during our last week in Newcastle, when we were zigzag-ing in all directions to places we thought we would visit during our time there but never did.

California, Riverside

"This is a picture taken from my apartment near campus. The palm trees, UC Riverside bell tower and of course the famous "C" mountain that everyone must hike up to. A overcast winter day with a tad of sunshine - totally surreal. =))"

(cailin, she whose window view i'm envious of)

The Calm of the Business District

"Singapore's Central Business District in the cool late evening, through the frame of two coconut trees at Kallang Riverside Park. On an occasion which can no longer exist. The Ephemeral and the Eternal, concurrently, yet one never knows which is which."
