Bifurcate Totems, Gardens by the Bay

Totems inside the Domes at Gardens by The Bay.

Bifurcate Totems, Gardens by the Bay

Do you find totems scary?
I think when I was growing up, watching too much cartoons made me feel scared about it.

I wondered, what gave the craftsman ideas on how to carve them?
I guess it's a huge study.

Maybe I will read it up when I am free some day! Probably when I retire.

If you are like me, wondering what Bifurcate means, wikipedia says this:
Bifurcation means the splitting of a main body into two parts.

Cow's Udders Lookalike

Seen at the restaurant at W Hotel Sentosa - Skirt.


If you look up when you dine there, you will see this nice woodwork hanging.
Was told like everything in the restaurant, it's 'cow'-themed!

Those are 'udders'.
Nice isn't it?

Stop horsing around.

It might just be a trojan horse, do you think so?

No sculptor's name. The stone feel is very nice though.

Artificial Rock #71

If you have taken the 'skybridge' from Marina Bay Sands to Gardens by the Bay, you would have seen this rock sculpture.

The sculptor, Zhan Wang has a series of it and the series is call Artificial JiaShanshi.

Big Biscuit Boxes

Long ago, in our grandparent's era, they store their treasures in Biscuit Tins.
I can't remember if my grandparents have them though. I was too young perhaps.

One set of grandparents store things in banks and safe deposit boxes.
The other set store them in antique chairs that grandma said were made by granddad and it had built in secret compartments!

Biscuit Tin

The Singapore Public Libraries are now having an interesting exhibition.
They are collecting memories of people living in Singapore. Go take a look if you are here.

Zam Zam, since 1908.

Since 1908....

Zam Zam

One of the rare food places in Singapore that survives such a long time!
Still loved by many and will continue to do so.

Sometimes you just see things that are very cute.
Tapir sculptures, or inspired by the Malayan Tapir.



Aren't you glad that there are now more and more interesting sculptures in Singapore now?
It's not a city of concrete jungle only.


This information board for you to read more about it.

Sunrise - 3 April 2013

Earlier this morning when I woke up. Wishing you a beautiful and glorious day!

You can't really tell from a photo whether it's sunrise or sunset can't you?
