Spotted in sunny Sentosa were these hilarious signs, that I somehow failed to notice before. I am very sparing in my use of LOL, but kudos, Samantha Lo, that’s what your artwork exactly made me do.
Day 1 in Melbourne: No Plans? No Problem!
Fresh off a chill-out weekend in Perth, I found the busy, bustling streets of Melbourne a bit disorienting at first. Quick-footed yuppies stirred the city off to a start, while tourists and a whole lot of tennis buffs looked forward to another nail-biting day of the Australian Open.
Our well-laid out itinerary for Melbourne Day 1? Verbatim, it was this: “see the city”. Okay, sounds like a plan to me! Continue reading “Day 1 in Melbourne: No Plans? No Problem!”

How to Spend an Artsy Fartsy Day in NY
Good morning, sunshine!

It still blows my mind to think about how they managed to get all those glorious works of art under one roof — it’s as if the Celestial Star of Everything-Almighty-in-the-World-of-Art wandered into the museum and suddenly burst, just leaving globs of awesome all over the place.
