Organising meat

What is it with that post title, you may ask? Heh, heh!

Saturday morning is my busiest morning of the week. I go to the wet market before the sun peeks through and buy my meat fresh and early - fish, chicken, pork. And when I get home, I wash each and every piece of them, clean them, cut them, separate them into daily uses and store them into labelled freezer bags.

So there! It IS what it is. Organising meat. :)

Marina Bay Sands

It's wonderful to get to stay at the Marina Bay Sands at the expense of my company. What luxury, right? 4 days 3 nights at a rate of RM1,500.00 per night (USD460) felt kinda heavenly. Obviously I wasn't there for all fun and play. I was actually there to attend a Cloud and Big Data conference (some jargon there, eh?). Anyways, Singapore isn't at all new to me. It used to be an annual affair where I would go twice a year but my last visit there was at least 5 years ago. Some gap there. The Singapore Flyer wasn't there yet and obviously Marina Bay Sands was non-existent then.

This was the first photo I took while standing just outside of the Louis Vuitton deck, a stand-alone crystal building atop the waters (worth mentioning). It was a breezy and peaceful night. I was wasting some time waiting for the water and light show to start just outside of Marina Bay Sands entrance. It is played to the public at 8pm and 930pm daily.

I will share more photos (of my room and the surroundings) in my personal travelogue, for those who knows.

As for now, I'm just too lazy to write more. Till next update!

Music again

Music is still running in my veins, in my blood. It's been a while since I took time off (alone) to enjoy an orchestra performance. It was moving, majestic, magnificent! The Covent Garden Soloist Orchestra featuring Pamela Tan-Nicholson and Vasco Vassilev. Singapore is their 1st stop in this Asian tour with the full cast. They will perform in KL on 11 Nov but not the full cast. Being Pamela's hometown, she gave us extra time of encore!! Started at 8, ended at 11pm. For those who may or may not know, she's the mother to the child prodigy and violinist, Vanessa Mae.

It's also wonderful to be travelling again. I shall update in my next post.

For now, sleep beckons ...
