For your info, Japanese refer pornography videos as pink tapes, just like we refer them to blue tape.
Osage collaborates with artists around the world, organises themed exhibitions every now and then. The current exhibition is Inventory: New Art From Southeast Asia. Most of the artists works are installation based, some offer video projections.
I particularly like Lure by Tintin Wulia as she has an interesting way to fit her work into the gallery space. Having the sense of space is very important because your work is only complete when it is appropriately presented.
Minced pork with steam eggs are like my favorite dish when I’m younger, before I stop eating pork.
My mum has tried with other substitute: 冬菜 with steam eggs. It tastes alright, but she has not been making it like for many years liao. Every time I see this dish, I can only unsightly scrap the top part of the eggs while the pork stays below.
Feel miserable. Why no one make a chicken one for me?
One of the neighbors give us a bagful of folded boxes from old magazines. According to my dad, these are folded by a 90 years old lady who wants to train her mind, keep herself occupied. *Applause*
They are very useful in every day’s life. 🙂
Despite much help from Wenxin and Foong Yee, we still did not manage to get out of Singapore for a birthday celebration this weekend. I actually planned a boutique hotel overnight stay or a Bintan spa retreat for Lester’s birthday. Hmm… We must really do this sometime!
I started spending money crazily this semester, thinking my money well will not dry up. But that’s beside the point. I dragged Lester for a project shopping anyway. Shopping for his OWN gifts, of course.
Tried Crocs, Pull & Bear, Esprite and finally FCUK. He likes a TWEET tee shirt. Tata~
Happy bird-day in advance!
Seriously, I have no time to blog. FYP is coming to an end really soon. Totally excited!
The other thing to look forward to is graduation. I dunno why I wanted to get out of school so much. 4 years of studies is indeed too long.
This is one of the random things I will do during recess: meet up an old friend for lunch. Actaully, Coral Village serve very nice zichar food. I tried once at Beach Road, this is the second time. But this particular branch at Kreta Ayer takes like ages to serve.
Sentosa 4D Magix
The first show we watched or rather played was as an interactive game called Desperados at CineBlast. Desperado is Singapore’s first interactive shoot out game where there are like 25 of us sitting down on a cowboy saddle and shooting bandits on the screen as they appear.
At first I thought the cowboy saddle are just dummies, I didn’t know they move! But nevertheless, it increases the difficulty as well as the fun of the game.
I was in the first place during the training mode, but dropped to 3rd place for the final results. We have unlimited ammos, so I trigger happy and half way through the game, I have to switch hands because my fingers are aching.
Extreme Log Ride
Extreme Log Ride
The next show we watched was the Extreme Log Ride which is also at CineBlast.
Drop Your 3D Glasses
It is a 3D simulator, so you have to wear the 3D glasses provided. You started out as a log in the Himalamazon being cut and then transported to the other end of a logging facility.
It is pretty realistic as there are 6 axis of movement within the simulator cabin. But if you got motion sickness, I would recommend you to avoid this as the movement can be pretty sudden and jerky.
Unlike the previous two shows, Pirates is not a computer generated film but instead it is acted by humans. The story of the show focuses on this single young pirate setting traps around the island for the other pirates as they are looking for treasures on the island. Similar to the Extreme Log Ride, this is also a 3D show, but they added in another D to become 4D. The additional D come from wind blowing at you, water sprinkling onto you, movement of the chair as well as pressurized air being release below at your leg and at the top beside your head. I kinda like the elements in the extra D, perhaps they can include smell as well. The movement of the chair is irritating though. I think the 3D is more realistic than the Extreme Log Ride. You can literally see and “feel” a bee and a bat right in front of you.
