young/old

Being the main person in charge of my company’s Facebook account, I am able to see what a lot of our doctor members share. Noticed a paediatrician post this earlier today:

Me: “How old are you?”
Little boy: “I am not old.”
:)

How cute is that!!! :D

the solitary diner

As a single girl, I eat at restaurants alone quite regularly. But actually, solitude is a luxury in our crowded city……

a curious evening

And I think…… my next adventure has quite possibly…… found me……

serendipity

His search for a sewage pipe, which began in 2000, became one family’s tale of obsession and discovery. He found a subterranean world tracing back before the birth of Jesus: a Messapian tomb, a Roman granary, a Franciscan chapel and even etchings from the Knights Templar. His trattoria instead became a museum, where relics still turn up today.

I really enjoyed this article, about an Italian man who started digging to fix a pipe, and ended up unearthing an amazing array of historical artifacts!

journey to the west

MRTed all the way to Westgate, at the other end of the island, this morning. Had arranged to meet a certain someone over coffee. I had an interesting time. Perhaps I could call it…… a life-changing experience……

the wisdom of children’s literature

A month ago, Kang Hao sent Ming Zhen and I the following image, evidently from 9GAG:

mewtwo

He later commented that he actually hated everything about Pokemon other than Mewtwo. Its words of wisdom actually made me recall two quotes from Albus Dumbledore in the Harry Potter series……

To Harry Potter in The Chamber of Secrets: ‘It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.’

And to Cornelius Fudge, Minister of Magic, in The Goblet of Fire: ‘You place too much importance, and you always have done, on the so-called purity of blood! You fail to recognize that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be!’
