ITS A SATURDAY!!! ok no i know it isnt, but it sue does feel like one. Meeting Daniel always make any day feel like a saturday, because he usually only meet me then. Soooo we went to the lotus today. Technically the actual name is the Art Science Museum but it really does look like a lotus to me so im just gonna call it the lotus. give it some magical feel i guess. the museum have 5 levels [including a basement] and the exhibits that we were going to are on the 3rd anf the second basement. [i do not remember there being a b1 on the buttons of the lift. i might be wrong]
oh right, we watched monster house at my place before heading to the museum. somehow i had a feeling i watched that show before but i cant remember. it was a nice movie though.
So we went for the mummy and the lego art exhibitions, tickets were cheaper together, and spent roughly 3 hours there. the mummy exhibition opened with a 3D movie about one of the mummies on exhibition and how the mummies are mummified. its actually interesting but it was freezing in there. i swear, i am built to live in a tropical country. i can tolerate the heat better then i can the cold. 24 degrees air con in a room and i run for my blanket! Only contradiction is my skin would suffer in a hot country. I would burn, almost literally.
i think the mummy exhibit is a tiny bit creepy for me. usually, mummy exhibitions does not freaked me out but this exhibition mainly focused on the process of mummifying and the burial and stuff for dead egyptians from like 3-4 thousand years ago. and the fact that there are real mummies, dead for so long, on display, feels kind of erie. somehow, i felt like i am intruding into their privacy, which they should have after being dead for so long, simply by being in the same room as them. its just me. but in all, the exhibition was pretty cool. its interesting to see nevertheless.
the lego exhibition was super cool! I visit Singapore Art Museum a couple of times before and personally, i think the concept of using legos to create art to be a very interesting one. Artists used so many different medium to create art, such as wires, porcelain, plaster, stone, paint and what not. but this is probably the first time i see anyone use toys to create art. but then again, its not surprising since legos have become a hobby for many than a past time. i really liked the portraits of people done with legos. Im a portraits person and seeing portraits made out of legos is probably one of the most amazing things i have seen. the details were amazing and from far, its hard to believe its made of lego bricks. except, of course, the slight regid-ness of the features, but even that is easily missed from a far.
we stayed after the exhibition and played the lego bricks they provided. cause we are such kids at heart! :D daniel almost stole the hanging bridge he created but since he cant, he wanted to hide it so no one can destroy it. we left it there in the end. i attempted the eye of sauron cause i caouldnt think of any other thing to make….did not have enough black bricks so it turned out stiffy.
had dinner at the soup spoon again. i swear, im such a soup spoon fanatic. i always have either the beef goulash or simon and gafungal[?]. though maybe next time i can try the mushroom cause it taste fantastic [i tried daniel’s bowl] or the clam chowder cause jolene says its nice.
And…..IT RAINED! i can stand the heat but the humidity is too unbearable. in singapore, its hot and humid! i can take half but not the other half. so when it rain, im so excited! and its cool, not cold, just cool…..i can hide under my blanket in peace tonight. A good night’s rest and tomorrow…….i dont know if i should head to passiongadget and art friend tomorrow or wait till friday….ill decide tomorrow depending on my mood when i wake up i guess.
Too lazy to proof read :D
i am not gonna type with proper caps because im lazy and the caps locks button is just so out of the way for me. tumblr should really consider auto caps where it is appropriate. if not, for the rest of my tumblr life, i am just gonna type without caps or have caps when i am not feeling as lazy.
today i was bouncing off ideals with daniel for something to write for esl408. somehow, we ended up with alot of options. now i am having a rather hard time deciding what to write instead of not knowing what there is to write. then, there is that research paper to do. i think the one part i hate most about writing a research paper is the literature review. the fact that i have to sit and read through piece after piece of research papers really sickens me. recently, reading has taken the form of a lullaby and does nothing but put me to sleep. this is partly due to the fact that 1) they arent interesting enough for mr and 2) they just dont hold my attention span. considering most of the materials i am reading are research papers and the textbooks, i can see why. really cant wait for the holidays to come.
i have not been blogging in a long while. almost forgotten that i have a tumblr. most of the time, i really dont have the time or energy to blog even though i have a lot to say. i would try my best to blog more when i have the time and the energy. i have plans to write a new story soon. hopefully i can kick start my writing during the holidays. after i finish with all the academic writing that i have to do.
