Are you a fan of Lego?

Warm Humid Nights

It was a dark and stormy night.

SingtelBuilding


No it wasn't. It has been so so so hot and humid in Singapore recently!
Looked up and saw the building of the leading telco in Singapore.


It has been humid
Even night time the heat stays
Aircon I need thee.

Airport from the runway...

Changi Airport as viewed from inside a plane from the runway.
Can you guess the plane I am on by the colour of the tip of the wing?

Changi Airport

I realise that in many airports that I have landed, the aerobridges are always plastered with adverts from HSBC. Is that the case with the airport in your city?

What's the thing that you do when the plane lands?
Do you turn on your mobile phone to search for signals?  ;-P

Nepal Circus

Nepal Circus. I saw this near Fusionopolis.

A road sign with a small patch of green and a semi, almost circle road.

Just wondering what was this previously.

Ice Shaving Machine

The weather's so warm and humid these days that I wish I have this machine at home!

Witnessing Venus Transit at NUS


Earlier today, many people were around the NUS Multipurpose Field all excited to see Venus!
Yup, the planet Venus!

Colleagues and I also joined to welcome Venus at the NUS fields.
NUS had a series of event and you can read about it here or here.

You can get better photos on the internet, but this was what I got to see when I viewed through the many telescopes that was around the field. I managed to take a photo of it using my iPhone via the telescope's eye piece!

The little black dot, that's Venus!

veNUS Transit
I am not sure who this person is, but he is very knowledgeable and was sharing what he knows to people around.

One of the many queues on the field on a bright warm day.
This was the biggest telescope around and it also had the longest queue!

This telescope was connected to a laptop.
This person was looking at this laptop under his jacket so that it can be dark enough.


Venus Transit
The crowds!

Were you there too?
Did you watch it in the country you were in?
