Fun In Singapore


I can't fully explain it but I really had a fun trip with my sister in Singapore.

I enjoyed every moment, every bit of surprise, every place we went, whether grand or just at the street corner, taking the MRT or walking our feet and legs to exhaustion, heheh.

Love the experience, shopping, whether buying or not buying anything.

Then eating and eating and eating . . .

Sharing South Korea

Hope you don't mind me sharing my recent trip in another place in Asia. I really had fun in my sight-seeing stint, even if just for a couple of days, in South Korea.

We went to Bukak Skyway where we see the Han River and the rest of the picturesque city of Seoul.

Sharing Asia

Just a break . . . wish to share with you my discoveries in another place in Asia - Seoul, South Korea

The Floating Island is a group of three large artificial islets below Banpo Bridge, on the Han River.

The project cost about 96 billion won. The entire facility is 9,900 square meters in size, including the connecting bridges. The largest islet is Vista, housing a 692-seat convention hall. The other islands are called Viva and Terra.

The place was opened to the public in April of 2011 as a Seoul landmark.

Adventures In Singapore

I was so happy just to have visited Sentosa, Singapore but was really fortunate to have even gone to the Adventure Park and was so ecstatic to have completed the day with a great adventure.

I took the super mega-zip challenge plus the para-jump free fall . . . yoohoo!

I found this video in YouTube for a better sharing of the experience.

Just A Break From Singapore, A Glimpse Of Seoul

Happiness is having your child experience a whole new world in another country.

Korean? Most likely an Egyptian dance.

Memorable moments at the Gyeongbok Palace . . .

Having fun with brightly-colored, traditional, Korean clothing . . .

How about being buddies with the palace guard?

Singapore Art Museum

The Singapore Art Museum (SAM) houses the national art collection of Singapore. It possesses a collection of pieces of Singaporean and Southeast Asian modern and contemporary art, and has an expanding collection of new Asian and international contemporary art.

Situated in the center of Singapore’s major shopping district and Waterloo Street Arts Belt, SAM is located alongside Singapore’s major performing arts and visual arts institutions: such as the Nanyang Academy of Fine Art, La Salle College of the Arts, the Stamford Arts Center, the Selegie Arts Center, Singapore Calligraphy Center, YMS Arts Center, Dance Ensemble Singapore, Sculpture Square and Action Theater as well as the School of the Arts.

Galleries feature paintings, sculptures, and installations from its permanent collection of Singapore and Southeast Asian modern and contemporary art as well as touring renowned shows like the Masterpieces from the Guggenheim Museum: Scientist, Inventor, Artist.

Community outreach is an important area of the Museum's function through the promotion of awareness and appreciation of art within the local and regional context. It encourages the growth of an active and stimulating cultural environment in Singapore. This is done not only through the Museum's exhibition programmes but also through its education and public programs which cover a diversity of art trends and practices, fringe activities and public lectures, aimed at reaching the local community at large as well as regional and international visitors to Singapore.

SAM is accessible by major public transportation systems such as the public buses, the MRT lines and cab services. Bras Basah MRT Station, along the new Circle Line, is next to SAM.

Happy in Singapore

Well, happiness for me is being able to accept life's puzzles and being able to play it with joy, despite the difficulties.

Step? No.

Jobs in Singapore

This morning, a thought just came to me on top of a hundred thoughts.

What jobs are available at Singapore? Job openings . . . positions open for job seekers . . . work.

This is a photo of my cool tour guide (in a pilgrimage), Adrian (at the middle).

I enthusiastically searched the internet and found some listings. Tried to re-group the data and came up with this Top 5 List:

1 Admin/Clerical
2 Engineering : Electrical/Electronics
3 Customer Service
4 Accounting/Auditing/Banking/Finance
5 IT

Wherever you are, whatever you do . . . as been said, just do it for the Lord. Seek for guidance, ask for wisdom.

Look . . . and Look Again

Just like a child, my Oriental eyes were wide open, looking and absorbing my surroundings in detail. Aside from the fact that I think I was lost and can't find my way to my next destination, I was so lured to curiously discovering all these things before me.

"Hep hep hurray", says I.

Easter Sunday

He is risen!

He who believes in Him will have eternal life.

Happy Easter!

Working in Singapore

I have not asked "how working in Singapore" was for my sister. Mom said however, that my sister had some great times in her job as an architect in Singapore. She was one of those single working girls.

I do remember while still employed in a multinational company, how our engineers, mostly graduates of ECE (Electronics Communications Engineering) or EE (Electrical Engineering), started resigning in the mid of the 90's to accept the job offers in Singapore.

Pay was very high and benefits very attractive. The only concern was being away from the family, but some were allowed to have their spouse and kids transferred to Singapore (as part of a compensation package they cannot refuse). So there goes our engineers in batches, the Exodus to Singapore for a high-paying job.

Anyway, just posted this as a breather.

My sister left Singapore to go to the US where she married her college sweetheart, whom she was away from, for years. Fate has its way.

Now, she suddenly asked me to accompany her to see Singapore again, after almost 15 years. We stayed for a night at the house of her very kind friend, Cris. The next day, we all got to see the Sky Park which was opened to the public in the 2nd quarter of 2010. We went to the top of the building to enjoy a panoramic view of beautiful Singapore.

Pleasure and work in Singapore are both welcome.

Chinese New Year

Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Chinese New Year is often called Chinese Lunar New Year although it actually is lunisolar. It is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays. It is an all East and South-East-Asia celebration and the correct naming is hence "Asian New Year".

In China it is known as "Spring Festival," the literal translation of the Chinese name, owing to the difference between Western and traditional Chinese methods for computing the seasons. It marks the end of the winter season, analogous to the Western carnival.

The festival begins on the first day of the first month in the traditional Chinese calendar and ends with Lantern Festival which is on the 15th day. Chinese New Year's Eve, a day where Chinese families gather for their annual reunion dinner, is known as ChĂș Xi or "Eve of the Passing Year."

Chinese New Year is the longest and most important festivity in the Chinese Lunisolar Calendar. The origin of Chinese New Year is itself centuries old and gains significance because of several myths and traditions. Ancient Chinese New Year is a reflection on how the people behaved and what they believed in the most.

Chinese New Year is celebrated in countries and territories with significant Chinese populations, such as Mainland China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore,Taiwan, Thailand, and also in Chinatowns elsewhere.
