Departure

We're finally saying goodbye to Karen Funk , because this is the last time she's hosting the Monday Photo Shoot. From next week the baton being passed to Carly
For this week, the challenge set by Karen is to photograph either Departure of Destruction.

So here's my take:


At the Changi airport new terminal 3 Departure Lounge, which was opened to the public recently.
Departing plane heading off to another country by our well known Singapore Airlines.

This special photo is specially dedicated for Karen , fell free to soak those tired feet in this basin full of water. You deserved it after all the hard work and efforts managing the Monday Photo Shoots weekly.


But don't think that you can get rid of me that easily, I'll be still lurking around your blog, because I really enjoy your writing. As for me , since I'm not really good with writing I'll just stick with putting lots of pictures here.

Toys

For Photo Sunday challenge.

Heard of Gundam figurines? this is from my 20 years old's collections. He got quiet a number of these, which comes in pieces and he need to self assembled . Each gundam comes with an intruction booklet but it's in Japanese! I don't know how he managed to do it even though he doesn't read Japanese, maybe the diagrams help a bit....


Entrance

For Unique Photo Challenge:
ENTRANCE to a Chinese eatery I think, I like the intricate wood carving on the door.

Public Art - Round Robin Challenge

For this week challenge, we are suppose to show off the Public Art around our town. So here's my take:


This is called Big Bang built by Joseph McNally. The cast silicon bronze sculpture of dimensions: 2.0m x 2.0m x 5.0m was created in the year 2000. It is found in the foyer of the headquarters for the Ministry of Information and the Arts (MITA)


The DNA necklace weaves through the universe symbolising life and the enforcing human spirit.



Another well known sculpture, that is known to all Singaporean is a replica of the statue of Sir Stamford Raffles made of pure-white-poly-marble , next to the river at Raffles Landing, marks the spot where Stamford Raffles first set foot on the island in 29th January 1819.
It is actually a replica built in the year 1972, while the original dark bronze statue erected in 1887 is now at Empress Place, just a short walk away.

Junks

Karen Funk wanted to see Junks for her Monday PhotoShoot challenge, well, not much junk in my house as I like to de- cluttered often but somehow there's something which are meant to be thrown /given away still collecting dust here.

Actually these baskets were rescued from some friends, but since I couldn't find any use at the moment, they are piled up neatly and dumped outside the apartment. Of course to make it nicer, I put some silk flowers in the top basket.

These boxes belonged to the hubby, I'm not sure what's inside, maybe one day he'll go though them and decided what to do with them. The one in the plastic bag is mine, there's remnants of wool threads that I used to crochet. I kept taking them down from the storage area and cracking my head on what to do with them.......ended up, they goes back to the storage area. What I hate about them is they collect dust and I'm allergic to dust-mites!

PURPLE


For Tuesday Challenge

You gonna eat that?




You bet I'm going to eat them!



Karen Funk wanted to see the most unusual food I can find for her New Monday Photo Shoot #33. Since I'm practically on the other side of the world from where she is, I decided to show her something very commonly found here in Singapore but might be a little difficult to find over there.



These are known in Asia as Rambutan, in Malay it literally means hairy or hairy fruit caused by the 'hair' that covers this fruit. But once you peel the hairy skin away, there's a sweet and juicy flesh waiting to be devoured, just watch out for the seed inside though. These fruits are commonly found in tropical country in abundance. In Singapore we don't have the land to grow them in big orchards, so we just import them from a neighbouring country Malaysia. Of course I've seen the rambutan trees growing in private properties here, it a beautiful sight when almost three quarters of the trees are covered by the red ripe rambutans when in season.





Karen, I think you may find canned rambutans in Asian stores over there, but of course nothing beat eating them fresh! shall I send you some?
