| Shiny Glowing Spring Raindrops |

It’s Spring!

2013-03-19 11.36.14Of course, here in Singapore it’s almost ever summer. But we can dream, we can imagine, we can pretend, can’t we? Even if it’s just for a brief moment, a glimmer of colour, a pastel raindrop. We can share the rest of the world’s joy, sorrow and in slightly more than a weeks’ time, the pain and glory of Jesus Christ.

Easter indicates a glorious spring, but it also points to something so much more important. Something so painful it’s rectification is so beautiful.

We are preparing to grief together with Christians worldwide. And then to dance and Rejoice with abandon.

Our thoughts are feelings are reflected in these new brooches ($29 and $33) at shupg. Where birds, owls, and raindrops are set free and look up into the clouds, into the skies, into Heaven.

Have a thoughtful Holy week and a joyful Easter weekend!

| Raindrops on noses |

24 Apr

As a kid, I used to watch Sound of Music every time I had a chance to. Before there were laser discs or LDs (yes, those HUGE vinyl pieces) I caught them on TV every time they were screened (which was like twice a year during long weekends with public holidays). And then I made my parents borrow the LDs every fortnight. Then I recorded them on VHS and watched them every time I felt sad or a little nostalgic. Well, of course now they are readily available on DVD but I’ve yet to secure a copy… maybe because it’s embedded in my mind so firmly I don’t need visual reminders anymore :p. It helps to have visited that long tree-shaded gazebo in Salzburg where they filmed the many lovely scenes.

Raindrops on noses ….. ah….. an unforgettable tune.

Black raindrops come from white clouds… or do they?
This elephant loves raindrops, especially those which brings with them a star.

Bring a snazzy jazzy black brolly, though it doesn’t look like rain. For now.
