#eatverestinmalaysia : Staying at @thereplacementlandk for our mini holiday in JB was a really great idea because the famous chicken chop from IT Roo Cafe is just across the road. It was really good and the food came quickly. We were almost fooled into thinking that the potato wedges were processed ones but nope they are not. The grilled chicken chop is much nicer than the fried ones in our opinion. As usual, D and I are same same but different! He likes it with the pepper sauce while I prefer the mushroom sauce.
Dining with Richie Koh at Nipong Naepong – 1st Korean Jjamppong Specialty Restaurant 😝 Cha Ppong is shiok! With just level 1 spiciness, it’s pretty hot 👍🏻 Ni Pizza (Sweet Potato pizza - not in photo) is probably the best in the pizza menu. Portion is huge! Two mains would likely be enough for 3 pax.
“The God who created, names and numbers the stars in the heavens also numbers the hairs of my head. He pays attention to very big things and to very small ones. What matters to me matters to Him, and that changes my life.”
The Night Festival is just around the corner, not long ago we went for the Rainforest Lumina too, so how about a little challenge to see how you deal with night scene?
It’s been a while since our first challenge series, so let’s use the tag #instasgChallenge02 - show us what you can do in the low light situation, or under those spotlights. Be creative with your shots, and you can tag any old posts too.
We just want to see your skill and creativity in this situation, because we might have something for you in September! 😉 Well the few best ones will be featured for sure, but we have a little surprise too for those who can show they have what it takes. We keep it as surprise for now, and we shall keep this open until Monday Aug 27th midnight.
Start tagging your night shots with #instasgChallenge02 now!
Such a strange melancholy. Will you understand if I say: I'm sad that I'm not sad?
On my way home tonight I walked past a Teochew Opera in my neighbourhood. You know, one of those that spring up every Chinese Seventh Month for the gods and the hungry "elder brothers" who come. I tried to stand awhile, to watch a performance that would likely vanish in the next two decades (or less). But it was difficult: to understand the artful, singing Teochew; to follow the plot; to soak in the thunderous cacophony.
To support or to walk away in apathy? Both ways, I felt like a sham. I understood nothing, and to pretend at nostalgia would be dishonest. I'd grown up in the Television Age. Teochew Operas were tactile affairs - I remember them more for the terror and mystery they engendered in me (where are the ghosts in the first row?? The raw smell of grass where the stage would be set up. The muahchee man, who lit his stall with only a candle. The fierce smoky stench of incense. Ahma's dreamy, distracted gaze) than any appreciation for their "innate" cultural or heritage value. There are different ways to be Chinese, not just Mandarin.
We only save what we love. And we only can love what we understand. And so tonight, there was a strange, melancholy nostalgia in me. I watched the singing thunder of a neighbourhood Teochew opera, uncomprehending, a sickly shadow of its former grandeur and opulence. And yet I understood little to nothing of its narrative nuance, its technicolour actors, its overloud music. I walked away shortly after. I could not understand it, and so I could not love it, and so I did not know how, or why to save it How many things of the past have we lost in such accidental ways?
I’ve been wanting to visit the Henderson Waves bridge in Singapore for a few years now. On our flight home from Paris we stopped in Helsinki and then Singapore. On my way to dinner with a friend I spent an hour or so watching the sun go down here. Such a beautiful spot!!
