My Hand Sketch – Spring


hand sketch 01

I have never constantly practice my hand sketch for almost 20 years.

Lately, I have not be feeling well, mentally as well as physically.

Some how, something telling me I need to follow my heart, my voice and my path.

So I decided to pick my shaky pencil and start to draw.

After 2 hours of refreshment course, this is what I have!

I named this as Spring and May summer coming your way!

The sculpture “Momentum” located at the triangle traffic junction of Finlayson Green and Collyer Quay.  The vibrant color of this sculpture penetrates every passer-by’s eyes, and energizes the core of this financial district of Shenton Way.

This sculpture is made of steel and painted with vibrant colors.  The sculptor, David Gerstein was born in 1944 and this works of his was built in 2007.  This is a huge piece of art interms of height 18.35m and 11.157 in diameter.

It presents layers upon layers of figures in an upward spiral motion.  It signifies the population’s high energy and a continuouf of progress.

momentum 03

It pays tribute to the nation of past and present.  Upon appreciative of their strength and ingenuity.  Without it, Singapore will not be a dynamic metropolis today.

This vibrant color sculpture spreading out his color in this vibrant garden city, for sure is not coincidental.

15) A song for your own sake (2)


Boy, do girls ever love those monkeys!

We love you more than we can say
My dearest little monkey
You should not complain anymore
Just as you are a clown in the forest
And this is for your own good
You can expand your talent in the circus roundabout
To win a big applause
All these are for your own sake
As we shall always love you
That is what they rake

We love you more than we can say
My dearest little rabbit
You shouldn’t be squeaking anymore
As you are a timid guy living in the cave
And this is for your own good
You can expose your outfit to earn profit
All these are for your own sake
As we shall always love you
That is what they rake

We love you more than we can say
My dearest giant Garoupa
You shouldn’t be hiding underneath the ocean rock anymore
As you are one of the legend of the ocean kingdom
And this is for your own good
You become the celebrity in the chandelier hall
All these are for your own sake
As we shall always be your aficionado
That is what they rake

We love you more than we can say
My dearest little doggy
You shouldn’t be growing anymore
As you are just a little pet on the floor
And this is for your own good
You can expand your other side of talent
To win a big applause in the cold winter ending up on a dinning table
All these are for your own sake
As we shall always love you from our bottom of our stomach
That is what they rake

21) Where is this MRT Station / 这是哪一个地铁?


A glance at the Stadium MRT Station.

Stadium MRT Station, an underground Mass Rapid Transit station on the Circle Line in Singapore. The station serves the Kallang area and it’s located within the Kallang & Mountbatten vicinity.  It was opened on 17 April 2010 and earned The 2010 Singapore President’s Design Award, Design of the Year by reputable firm, WOHA Architects.

▼It was captured at an angle perceived with distorted effects.

In my opinion, the interior of Stadium looks like a ship, cladded with gray tiles, side windows and a central skylight allowing light penetration.  It also provides an oceanic view with vibrant turqoise colors as you slide from the top of the escalators to the basement platform.

 Impresses every commuters like a stream of blue water flowing to the river ground▼

Friend (13) – wall flower / 朋友(13)- 墙角花


几朵粉红色墙角花,外型潇洒,清新脱俗,却无人注意。路人匆忙的脚步与车辆排出的废气,它显得无动于衷。

Several pink flowers emerging from the wall, chic shapes, elegant and refine but no one catches a glimpse of them.  Then it was unperturbed with the busy footsteps that passed by her and the exhaust emitted by passing cars.

它没有朋友的围绕,没有赏花人伫立的惊叹。粉红花在那儿孤芳自赏,乐得其中。

She has no friends around, without eager admirers praising her marvel.  She was there all by her own and pleased with her own admiration.

它开心就笑,伤心就哭,没有拘束,没有条例,没有EQ指数更没有IQ过高。

She laugh when happy, cry when sad, with no obligatory, no ruling, not barred by EQ index or high IQ.

它告诉我只要开心就好,它不招摇过市,不爱打扮,只爱素颜见人。写自己的歌,哼自己的曲,怡然自得。

And yet she whispers lightly to me that happiness is not through the streets, not through dressing up but through unhidden Me.  Happiness is to sing your own songs, write your own lyrics and live with bliss.

几朵粉红色墙角花,毫无身价却那么开心,那我们呢?

Little pink flowers along the wall come with no price tags and yet so cheery, but why? Why did you exclude me?

Friend (12) – 3P Porridge / 朋友(12)- 3P 粥


能够暂时离开繁嚣,找个安静的角落,来一碗清淡小粥,享受恬静淡雅的一刻,人生何求!
Able to leave the hustle and bustle aside, find a quiet corner, have a bowl of light porridge and enjoy the quiet and elegant moment, what else do we ask for in life.
这是一碗3P小粥;平安,平淡,平凡的粥。
This bowl of 3P porridge; peaceful, plain and pleasant.
一碗毫不起眼的粥,没有名气的架式,没有奢华的点缀,没有高档的环境,没有美食家的评语。一副苍白虚弱的样子,默默摆在我面前,就为了填饱我们的肚子。
A bowl of humble porridge, not known in the rack, there is no luxury embellishment, upscale environment, no gourmet reviews.  With a look pale and weak, quietly placed in front of me, just to fill up my stomach.
尽管它没什么分量,但他还是紧守岗位,作为一位“护胃者”。
Although it has no load, but he still stick to his position as a tummy guardian.
这种3P无声无息摆在眼前,用天平称不到,长在额头的眼睛看不到,更别说走进时尚的高档品味。
This 3P sits quietly before us, can’t weigh it with a set of scale, catch no sight with our eyes, let alone into the upper crust.
所谓各花入各眼,这3P是一种福气,有异于一般。
As Beauty is in the Eyes of the Beholder, this 3P is a blessing, as it is different from the others.
