Chi­nese mythol­ogy depicts the dragon as a long, serpent-like crea­ture with pow­er­ful talons. Often linked with aus­pi­cious power, it is the nat­ural choice for the sym­bol of fortune.

23 Feb­ru­ary 2012
The tem­ple called me up to pho­to­graph a tri­en­nial event, the light-up of the fire dragon. The life and death of the dragon hap­pened on that very night of Feb­ru­ary, as it danced its great­est first and last — its only dance.

Write­board is back for the new year! We have been on hia­tus for sev­eral months now and this time round, we are col­lab­o­rat­ing with Esplanade to cel­e­brate its 10th anniver­sary with the theme– Cel­e­brat­ing Life. And yes, Esplanade is now 10 years old!

As the theme sug­gests, our Write­board ses­sions will be based on the val­ues, which well, embrace life too. So we made a trip to Huayi Fes­ti­val and asked the peo­ple there what COURAGE means to them.

I have a pen­chant for old trea­sures, which was why I have really enjoyed myself at our pre­vi­ous visit to Trea­sure Dragon Trad­ing in Chi­na­town. Unfor­tu­nately, it has closed down the last time I walked by the area late last year. Despite so, I have still man­aged to get my fix on these oldies at Thieves’ Mar­ket also known as the flea mar­ket at Sungei Road.

Tucked incon­spic­u­ously along Gey­lang Road, Med­ical Office is an antique lit­tle phar­macy that appears to be an anachro­nism stuck in time. We talked to the two pro­pri­etors, two elo­quent and elderly gen­tle­men who spoke in the delib­er­ate, kindly sort of way that only the wis­dom of their gen­er­a­tion offers.
