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

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.

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

More photos from yesterday...
It looks like a jungle out there!
The 'skin' changes every 5 mins or so. The crowd just gives out a loud 'wow' everytime a new 'skin' appears. Fascinating!

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.

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....

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!

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. :-)

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...

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 :)

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: www.agapella.net

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?

There were many pretty plants in the glasshouse :)

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.
