#8 Block 1 of #rochorcentre was seen demolishing. It's pretty sad to see iconic buildings going down the history for the future development of Singapore. What's left behind will be the photos.

30:29 A #dream #sequence. Sounds of creaking wood (floorboards? bamboo forest?) and low wailing winds #ghosts? #monsoons?) are introduced. A shot from above the #ceilingfan of a four poster bed, with the #actress #sleeping on her side, covered in a sheet, head on a pillow, and a second pillow next to her. Cut to close-up of her face. She is almost #asleep. We hear distant drumming, interspliced with sounds of men #shouting (on a loop). Cut to a man in red gloves and a singlet and kaki coloured bermudas and a green towel around his neck. He is seen lugging a #basket of #durians off a truck (a lorry, as we call it) and running towards a shop to drop off his load. Cut to the actress. She is wearing a #beige dress and two strings of #pearls. Cut back to the #photographer lugging durians off the lorry. This time around, he sees her. He seems surprised. He smiles as he walks towards the #camera, towards the actress. Cut to the same close-up of her face, back in bed, back in Raffles Hotel. Sounds of #birds chirping are introduced as sounds of drumming and shouting men #fade out. She smiles. This is followed by a #hallucination of the photographer, shirtless, hand in hand with an Indian woman with a basket full of things in her hand (why are Asian women always portrayed with baskets of things in her hands?). The actress #awakens and looks up to the ceiling fan. There are #orchids in the foreground. #RafflesHotel #ラッフルズホテル #RaffuruzuHoteru #RyûMurakami #村上龍 #HemanChong #TheBookOfDrafts #Singapore #ArchivingSg #1989

Paul Rudolph was born on October 23 1918 in Elkton, Kentucky and if he were still alive today he would have just turned 100. These three images are all close ups of the facade of The Concourse in Singapore, completed in 1994 and the second last of Rudolph’s projects in the region before his death in 1997. All three images were #shotoniphonexsmax using the #hydraapp which allowed me to make #telephoto views of the building on my #iphone . . . #sgarchitecture #architecturesg #archivingsg #archdaily #architecture #modernism #architecturelovers #architecturephotography #architectureporn #singapore #facade #colonnade #paulrudolph @paulrudolphfoundation @archdaily @dezeen

A big congratulations to @woha_architects for winning Building of the Year 2018 at this year’s @worldarchfest a real coup indeed! Previous winners of the top prize at the WAF from Singapore were all designed in collaboration with foreign architects and this is really the FIRST time a local firm has won Building of the Year! The icing on the cake has to be that the building is a mix-used public housing complex located in the heartlands, not a fancy commercial project in the CBD. Congratulations once again to WOHA and the HDB. I’m proud to have made these images for both of them. . . #hdb #publichousing #sgarchitecture #singaporearchitecture #vernacular #vernaculararchitecture #archdaily #archivingsg #architecture #architecturesg #architecturelovers #architecturephotography #architectureporn #sglandscape #sgcityscape #cityscape #landscape #landscapesg #landscapephotography #sonya7riii #sonyalpha #sonyalphaprofessionals #fullframefullon #guardiancities

"Last time nothing to do, not enough to eat. Must find work to do. You can’t be happy working for others. It’s not good to work for other people. You live better when you work for yourself. Work from home, you earn a little bit but it is your own hard-earned money.” — Tan Swan Eng ·· Portrait of Singaporean centenarian Tan Swan Eng for Centre for Ageing Research and Education (CARE) and as part of the 'SG100: A Celebration of Our Centenarians' exhibition.

#Cheap source of #antioxidants and #caffeine! Apparently, also contains #fatkilling #enzymes. Dunno #real or not. I get the runs when I drink #coffee, so this is a good #alternative. #OolongTea #DepotRoad #ArchivingSg #Home #China #Xiamen #Export #Tea
