  • The Mount Mogan Green [II]

    The Mount Mogan Green [II]

    { This post was originally posted on Someday, we will see the world } As we descended from the villa, we followed the true residents of Mount Mogan, who kindly led us to the waterfall. That was years before we knew about iNaturalist – a time where a beetle is a beetle (to us), with […]

    2020: May #1secondeveryday

    MAY we win the next game ๐Ÿ€„๐Ÿ€„๐Ÿ€„ { Afterthought } When Jon discovered Mahjong last month, we were thrilled to share this with our neighbour, Serene – this was the only way we could continue our Friday Mahjong sessions during shelter-in-place. Then came one faithful day, when my itchy fingers wandered into the Ranked Matches. […]

  • We Are One: May 29 to Jun 7

    We Are One: May 29 to Jun 7

    I miss making dog ears out of my film festival catalogues and looking for seat numbers in the dark, but I’m not complaining. Today, twenty-one global film festivals have come together, as one. Before I was able to travel, films played a big part in my late-teenage years and early twenties. It was the portal […]

    The Mount Mogan Green [I]

    { This post was originally posted on Someday, we will see the world } What do you do when your city is under shelter-in-place order?  Grow emergency bean sprouts? Attempt to draw? Spread positivity in the neighbourhood?  Been there, done that?  How about, jumping into the past? Click onto a random folder of old travel images and […]

    2020: April #1secondeveryday

    Out of curiosity, we started growing plants and attempted to build a bird sanctuary (of sorts). Whatever that we have created in the last year has made this roof access a haven in times of a pandemic. { Afterthought } When shelter-in-place started last month, April 7 seems like a date not too far away. […]

    2020: March #1secondeveryday

    The month everything changed. { Afterthought } San Francisco declared a state of emergency at the end of February and March started with many people panic buying at Walgreens. March 16 started as a date we marked down for my tooth extraction – I was nervous but did not see the shock coming. Coincidentally, on […]

  • No uncle(s), no owls in Singapore

    No uncle(s), no owls in Singapore

    { This post was originally posted on Someday, we will see the world } “Uncle” is an affectionate term we use in Singapore to address a male adult in his forties to seventies, even though we might not be family. Uncle Bangpao is my father’s friend of more than thirty years. He lives around the […]

  • The (little known) wildlife of Singapore – Part [II]

    The (little known) wildlife of Singapore – Part [II]

    { This post was originally posted on Someday, we will see the world } Before setting up birdfeeders on our roof and learning about backyard birds, I would have identified most of them as “little birds”. But today, there are so many feathered friends that I can recognise in San Francisco. Heading back to Singapore […]

    The (little known) wildlife of Singapore – Part [I]

    { This post was originally posted on Someday, we will see the world } When I was seven, my family moved from downtown Singapore up north. Back in those days, Yishun was not just the countryside, but a jungle of sorts. My father wanted his children to grow up with nature and wildlife. My brother […]
