i was really bad with directions and ended up walking a long way yesterday. Luckily the sun had decided to take a rest for the day, if not i would have been burnt.
Bugis (mrt) . . . . Sunshine Plaza (printing) . . . . SAM (drop off mail) . . . . ACM (exhibition) . . . . Raffles Place (mrt)
i was a little disappointed at the exhibition. Don’t be mistaken, McCurry’s photos are great (i had this image of a boy with a stack of pitta in his hand, etched in my mind since) but i was expecting more photographs on exhibit. And the glass panel with the framing causes a lot of glare and reflections that are very objectionable. Otherwise, it would have been a great exhibition.
The Unguarded Moment by Steve McCurry, 19 June – 19 July 2009, ACM
Yesterday was grey the whole day and i kept hearing A Little Fall Of Rain in my head. I’ve watched the musical Les Miserables three times, and each time, when Eponine collapsed to the ground and sang this song, my tears rolled down uncontrollably.
i bought this second hand poem book at Camden Market for just 10p many years ago. Not that i was into poems but i was attracted to the handwritten message on the first page. The book was a Christmas gift from Janie to her lover.
It’s a little sad that the book ended up in a flea market years later, but the fact remains that, in 1979 or before, they met each other and fell in love.
Yes, i am a romantic at heart... even though i don’t look like one.
