Lots and lots of eggs..

Spotted at a 'wet market'. A truck with lots of eggs inside. They are huge too!
Was told one 'crate' of it cost $4, much cheaper than buying from supermarkets. Fresher too!

Do you like eggs? How do you like it done? I like eggs with runny yolks! ;-)

Does the Hermès stores in Singapore has a statue on top of the store? I don't know. I got to get to town to check it out again. This photo I took had the tree blocking it.

Why did I ask? Because Hermès in Paris, Sydney, New York City has the statue of a horseman on a horse on the roof top. It's the logo of Hermès.

Check out these Daily Photo bloggers sites to view the statue.
Eric of Paris
Peter of Paris
Natalie of Sydney
Ming of New York City

ERP Charges display...

People are complaining about paying more for ERP with the addition of more gantries recently.

Did you notice that the ERP gantries seems to have changed recently too.

Here is how it looked previously (opens up a new screen/tab)
The gantry just tells you if it is in operation.

The pricing is on a separate board as shown here. (opens up a new screen/tab)
To know the charges, you read it from a separate board.

To make things easier, they have merged the two, and this is the new ERP gantry. I think this was started on 7 July.

You will also noticed the charges ends at 7:55 pm for this one. The charges changes from 7:55 pm. From 7:55 PM to 8:00 PM, the charges changes to 50 cents. Looks like a 50 cents discount is introduced in the last 5 minutes.

National Museum of Singapore. oh how colourful...

I only took 9 photos of the transformation. For each change you got to wait 5 mins. My legs were tired. ;-)

Can you spot the big butterfly?

This looks like a chalk board.

Hmm batik?

Hope you enjoyed it. I wonder how many different patterns are there...

National Museum of Singapore changes 'skin'...

More photos from yesterday...

It looks like a jungle out there!

Creepy crawlies..

Red walls..

The 'skin' changes every 5 mins or so. The crowd just gives out a loud 'wow' everytime a new 'skin' appears. Fascinating!

Gigantic hole in the ground..

This is one of the many big holes you can find in Singapore now. The on-going construction of the "Circle Line" mass rapid transit.

I would like to congratulate one colleague who just given birth yesterday. We visited her today at the hospital. Mother and baby's well and the baby is so cute.

Is it what I think it is? Escalators that's open air and faces the street.

I think it might be enclosed with an outer layer later. But it would be fun to ride on an escalator that I can see the streets from up high. ;-)

Traffic light crowd. Seem to be staring at me.

I was standing at the traffic junction. Took out my camera to snap the people opposite.

Hmm.. just look at how many eyes are staring at me? Yikes!
It is as if I have incur their wrath!

Sooner or later.... and now its confirmed...

One of the City Shopper bus service passes our home. Whenever sis and I take this service, there's never been more than 5 people in the bus. We have always wondered how long it will survive. Yesterday we saw this message posted.

We liked the service, we only pay $3.30 flat rate and it gets us to Orchard Road in just 20 minutes. Compared to paying over $10 for a taxi ride to the same destination. Oh well... tata....

Recycle your chairs...

This truck owner sure is innovative. Taking and old chair, saw off its long legs, and use it to sit on the back of his pick-up truck.

I wonder if someone sitting on it will topple over? I think the one at the furthest end looks the most comfortable!

Scaring the birds.

We were naughty. Just to take a photo, we made some loud noise, and the birds flew up.

Should not have done it, remembered that these birds might carry flu with them. Arrghh... LOL..

To feed or not to feed?

Seen on the back street or a restaurant. The restaurant owner has been feeding the birds.

Do you think the birds should be fed?

Let the little children come to me....

The design on the wall catches your eye?
Doesn't it look like little birds or butterflies?

This is Pei Hwa Presbyterian Primary School.
I think the design looks good on its white wall.

My cousin is one of the little children that attends this school. :-)

Drooling is permitted. Dripping is not.

These pictures are more than 1 week old. But I thought it was interesting. Everyone seems to be peeping inside this big box along Orchard Road.

I did too. :-)

It was the advertisement for the newly relaunched Magnum ice cream.
I think my sis is more interested in shoes than the ice cream. LOL...

The Over Achiever

Yesterday was Youth Sunday. The Youth at our church had a 'display' of several typical youths nowadays.

Are you what this sign says?

Have a good week ahead.

Do monkeys eat bread?

I am not sure of the answer, but this sign in a certain park in Singapore seems to suggest that. As far as i know, monkeys usually eat bananas, some fruits and nuts. Not sure about bread though.

If you venture into most parks or reservoirs in Singapore, you would see a sign like this. If you are caught feeding the monkeys, a fine of $500 will be imposed.

Have a good week ahead! And smile :)

A Night Under the Stars with Agapella

Last night, Momo and I went to the rooftop of YMCA Orchard Rd to an event called "A Night Under the Stars with Agapella".

I got the invite through Facebook. A friend who is part of the group sent the invite. They are a very talented bunch of people who are using their voice to spread the Good News. They are also Singapore's largest acapella group.

Want to hear how they sound?
This is a youtube clip that they put up, it's them doing a rendition of Canon in D.

You can find out more about them at:

"Guarded" vending machine

I was laughing at this vending machine when i saw it. First it was grilled up like anyone would have the strength to carry it away. Then i saw the top, it has a shelter over it!

This vending machine as spotted at a park in the west. Does your city have vending machines in the park?

Catch a bird?

Yesterday's monthly theme photo was on "No" signs. How about another one? :)

Thought this is quite funny. Would any one grab a bird with their bare hands? The bird would have flew away! ;)

DP Monthly Theme Photo for June 2008

It's the City Daily Photo Theme Day again. The theme this month is "No" sign.

This sign has no "No" word on it, but looking at the sign, you know what it tells you to do. Signs can tell so much, even for people who cannot read.

Join the rest of my fellow Daily Photo bloggers around the world. Check out how they interpret the theme. Photos might display at different time of the day depending on their time zone.
