So, we’ve just arrived in Singapore. It’s been about 2.5 years since I last visited. Today I went to buy some groceries and was standing in the cab (otherwise known as a “taxi”) line waiting for a cab. I noticed the guy in front of me cutting the line and taking the next cab that came along. I tried to glare at him but noticed everyone glaring at me instead. It was only then I realized…I was standing at the wrong end of the line. Ooops! I guess they do things differently in Singapore. Thankfully, I wasn’t crossing a street. :p
I’ve not been keeping up with my music lately. The only time I get to listen is when I’m driving. But, I’m one of those people who don’t keep track of the artist and song and I always find myself humming the songs and trying to figure out which one it is on youtube. *hahaha*.
But, yesterday, I finally told myself. I have to get those songs out of my head. *grin*. So, I went on iTunes and started searching and surprisingly, I managed to find those songs I’ve been wanting for SOOO long. Here’s a link to one of them:
The Way I am- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7T88NfxVJdc
I thought it is very appropriate. I told Gabriel (and he stared blankly at me) that this is the song he should be singing to me, especially the part about – being called “baby” and “rogane”. hahaha. It’s a private joke. Ever since I had him, I dropped a lot of hair. It’s beginning to grow back but *sigh* the baby hair is all stick up now and I look like the Naru from Love Hina with her hair sticking up.
Here’s the translation to Sugimoto-san’s blog entry:
I went to the shop that handled the mid-century United States furniture and miscellaneous goods the other day. It is for research of culture at that time and atmosphere.
Instead of taking a picture of the store and leaving, I decided to take a turn deliberately to see the inside of the store.
Large-scale..building..huge..store..all..retro..import..miscellaneous goods..overflow..inside..miscellaneous goods..category..exceed..thing..provide.
For instance, there were things, such as a gas can, and gas station and a road traffic sign, a parking meter, and a streetlight. They seeming are all valuable things obtained with proper channels. The design is very beautiful. The things in that age provide only one function for one tool is more exciting when designed and used for another.
I was satisfied of the shop as it was guided by a well informed beautiful woman clerk about the history background of the design and the miscellaneous goods of the shop for about two hours.
I bought one plate there. I took a photograph below. My office has become a parking lot except (Sunday is excluded. )hahaNo comments
