Genesis by Sebastião Salgado

When this exhibition first launched in Singapore, X kept bugging me to go and I’m so glad we did. It shed precious light on the daily life of native tribes and animalistic instincts of wild creatures. The exhibition is ending very soon so if you haven’t seen it yet, hurry!

Singapore Biennale 2013

As VIP members of the Procrastinator’s Club, we took it upon ourselves to sit and wait for the closing date of Singapore Biennale 2013 to draw dangerously near before finally heading down to the museums. Personally, the most memorable works include radioactive chandeliers, sugar diamonds and the rural Burmese classroom. We could only hope that Singaporean artists would have more notable artworks to showcase the next time around.

Princely Treasures

One day before the exhibition ended, we managed to pop by the National Museum for a round of Princely Treasures from the House of Liechtenstein. While eavesdropping on guided tours illuminated interesting insights into the works, I loved how the guides encouraged visitors to appreciate and evaluate these works independently, bringing fine arts to the masses.

Kith Cafe (Park Mall)

We were at Kith Cafe for a colleague’s farewell dinner. Amidst jokes and laughter, we braced ourselves for the impending goodbyes. It’s never easy, no matter how we try to steel our hearts — especially at work, where we spend long hours together but parting is almost inevitable.

I’d recommend bacon sandwich, ice-blended watermelon & lychee, and carbonara (especially for cream and cheese lovers).
