On the Radio....Regina Spektor

"This is how it works
You're young until you're not
You love until you don't
You try until you can't
You laugh until you cry
You cry until you laugh
And everyone must breathe
Until their dying breath"
On The Radio by Regina Spektor

This song rocks!

Love the way she say s"Ray...dioooo".
Cute is an understatment.....

ahhhhh because i wanted to run but my head hurts so i cooked instead....i love salmon!

solace in the kitchen

Salmon Cheese Pasta
its smells better than it looks but more importantly it taste better than it smells!

and if your stuck at home studying in front of your com (like me) then here's some stuff to distract you so that i can score higher than you during history exams...hurhur

trust me their real time wasters.

you have to love the poker card theme....they really put power rangers to shame. AND the exploding rat missle launcher RULEZ!

Indian Superman and spiderwomen! and the spiderwomen can fly!

i guess spiderwomen has to tag along so superman won't flirt with those damsels in saris with his gyrating hips and overflowing tummy. supermannnnnn....

and for those of you who always use your laptop...read this
and I quote
"The case spawned a host of unanswered questions.
How could a man -- who was dressed in "trousers and underpants"
-- obtain such an injury after just one hour of laptop use?"
read more to find out.

Tanglin Camp Singapore Biennale

One more trip and probably my last before the hectic submission engulfs the rest of my life. Shucks and I haven't been to the Indus Road one nor the religious buildings one.

To cut the pretentious crapping Tanglin Camp has more videos and interesting spaces than the other venues though i still feel that National Museum's collection is better curated. Kinda busy now so just enjoy the photos, will find time to label the works (where due credit to the artiste is very much deserved).

oh yeah and Dawn, Molly and Joshua came along. one quarter Team Fong...which reminds me to tell all of Team Fong that we need one Kushinbo outing after submission yeah. set ah?

Singapore Biennale - Tanglin Camp (7)

Singapore Biennale - Tanglin Camp (3)

Singapore Biennale - Tanglin Camp (6)

Singapore Biennale - Tanglin Camp (4)

Singapore Biennale - Tanglin Camp (13)

Singapore Biennale - Tanglin Camp (10)

Singapore Biennale - Tanglin Camp (1)

Singapore Biennale - Tanglin Camp

Singapore Biennale - Tanglin Camp (14)

Singapore Biennale - Tanglin Camp (8)

Anyhoo the Biennale's admission to all venues is now FREE! so no excuse not to go unless your mother busy studying or preparing for submission like us. But its a good break from everything yeah. Just go can?

and so the opening night for the sound exhibition went well and all and when you invite Belgium artists and the Belgium Ambassador over of course there had to be some wine and ...wait...wait...STELLA ARTOIS!!!!!!!!!

So we had abit too much leftover. People got drunk and all but we sure had fun!

Everyone drinks!

When cans of beer and lousy red wine in cheap plastic cups enter the realm of the archi studio weird trippy things start to happen in your head and all around you....which is a normal thing in a studio session, just that this one is... well, lets just say FRIGGIN GOOD!


Where there is booze there will be the Korean exchange students! (with Yan Choo)

Here below is a half drunk Kian Wee, whom we all know is dying to get fully drunk....as soon as possible.
Kian Wee

Here's Leonard and Bhots dunnoe doing what. Both equally trashed...

The sober ones who still had fun like Prawn who made everyone drunk by serving wine...there's Co Seng and Ming Jie in the background.
Prawn Co Seng and Ming Jie

Here's Beatrice the other wine server for the day...bringing in more wine!! woohoo
Beatrice brings the Wine!

And here's a close up of her "simi tai chi....why you take unglam photo of me" look


And if your in studio on a Wednesday night you really ought to prepare for your Thursday Design consultation sessions...even if you can't draw a straight line. Here's me trying to sketch out something in "drunk mode"....just testing if I possessed any drunken master talent that Li Bai or Liam Gallagher had when they create masterpieces....didn't work for me..sigh..

Huilian's in the background with the matching red jacket....she turned red after one glass of wine! ONE?


Molly trying the drunk thing too...only problem was she didn't drink. (thanks ah Mollom...I love Britannay Spears? whoever she is..)
Molly Sketches

Here's the end product

Here's Molly and her monster friend.
Molly with Monster

I have no idea why we had plastic guns in the studio. Here's JY shooting his right hand. We call it "Architect's Suicide.....To kill of your drafting hand".

I don't wanna draft anymore!

Architects killling other architect's drafting hands
Architect's killing each other off...

Architects killing other architects in the midst of "Drunken Architecture Discoursce"

and of course with every drinking session with JY we have to take a photo together to compare. As usual JY remains forever white....while I go red after two cans and many sips. One of my greatest achievements in life would be to make JY go red........but somehow the more he drinks the whiter he gets....

Jy and Me!

So yeah we wish we had more Exhibitions and Ambassadors coming over....with their national booze for us to waste ourselves upon. Keep them comin!

I look really wasted in this one but yeah...i managed to squeeze out a proper topography study and site map with sections on one A1....with much difficulty lah.
