What is postcrossing? It’s where you send a random person around the world a postcard, and receive one in return too! So far, I’ve sent postcards to US, Portugal, Russia, Germany, China, Taiwan!

An Octopus unscrewing a lid from the inside.

Octopuses are going to kill us all someday

I had a biology teacher that told us this story about an octopus at an aquarium in Australia. The staff were concerned because their population of crustaceans kept disappearing. No bodies or anything. So they checked the video feed to find out what’s up.

Across from the the crustacean tank was a small octopus tank. This little fucker squeezed out of a tiny hole at the top of his tank, walk across the hall, and get into the crustacean tank. He would then hunt and eat. After he was done, he crawled back out and get back in his tank

Here’s the kicker: security guards patrolled the area. The staff realized that the octopus had memorized the security’s routine. It would escape and be back between the guards’ round.

An octopus in Germany was annoyed by a bright light shining into his tank, so he climbed up over the rim and squirted water at it to short it

Fuckin’ octopuses, man.

Gisella Perl was forced to work as a doctor in Auschwitz concentration camp during the holocaust.
She was ordered to report ever pregnant women do the physician Dr. Josef Mengele, who would then use the women for cruel experiments (e.g. vivisections) before killing them.
She saved hundreds of women by performing abortions on them before their pregnancy was discovered, without having access to basic medical supplies. She became known as the “Angel of Auschwitz”.
After being rescued from Bergen-Belsen concentration camp she tried to commit suicide, but survived, recovered and kept working as a gynecologist, delivering more than 3000 babies.

I want to nail this to the forehead of every anti-abortionist who uses the word “Holocaust” when talking about legal abortions.

This woman is the stuff of which heroes were made—her, and the women who went to her.

你寂寞我陪你谈心

Woke up from a complex dream today- we were detached from our physical bodies and were doing other stuff in another reality. Very Divergent style. Haha also I need to rewatch Matrix- watched it when I was a kid and probably didn’t really know what it’s about hahaha.

Went to have lunch with wenx @ katong shopping centre- had fun catching up! Found this very delicious and fresh banana cake that I’m going to recommend to everybody.

Went to nua at her house! Say hello to her cute birds :)

And this African Grey parrot here can apparently say “alamak”!! HAHA!! Ahhh these birds are so awesome up close haha (the bird park excitement has yet to wane)

Ahhh struck by lots of wanderlust again. I think I found one more answer to why I want to travel. Mainly I want to experience one specific thing.

"BEAUTY"

Often you can find this in architecture and nature (people too, of course).  Not saying Singapore has none, but it’s different, no?

That’s why people take photos… make videos… write. Are we all not chasing beauty, to want to capture it in some way?

Spent the rest of the day reading and trying to play bar chords. Hahaha.Sundays like these are absolutely lovely . If only we had more of these slow days to indulge in.

I am also on a eat-clean/lose weight diet. Stop eating soooo much junk and go for things like cherry tomatoes too. Still yummy but better I guess. Though I crave all my MSG and potato chips. All. The. Time.

Tilt and balance.

Back when I first started drawing them in 2011, the Keeper had antlers and the spellmaker had horns. I’d phased them out by 2012 because I kept thinking about how uncomfortable it would be for them to sleep lying down. Their current antler/horn-less states are more mundane, but I sleep better knowing they also sleep better.

moments\

Moments I observe in my surroundings:

  • Was walking out of the MRT station, ready to head home. There was this really tall guy walking in front of me, and soon a girl bounded up to him and they broke into wide grins and embraced each other. Then he reached for her waist and they strolled into the nearby Cheers casually. I doubt they even knew where they were going- they were so wrapped up in each other, so happy to see each other. A blissful moment :) 
  • Saw an elderly couple being very sweet to each other, thought of them as ‘cute’. Then I remembered that this was a stereotype (in my Sociology Ageing class)… but then what am I to think then? Sometimes you may point out flaws but then with no ready answers tipping the pyramid might be unwise. I don’t know. So many questions.
  • A little boy was rambling to a father on the bus. He was very adorable, and the father was very patient. I wonder how it is like to have such a bundle of joy and responsibility.
  • I see a mama pushing a two baby stroller- a 2-3 year old boy at the bottom seat, and a months old baby on top, facing the mother. I wonder how it must feel to push that stroller- to have such a sunshiney face look back at you with every step
  • I see two little Malay sisters at the bus stop, before they are followed by their very elegant mother. I think about how children are really “little human” versions of ourselves. 
  • Today two teen boys ran into the train carriage, almost not making it. They were still panting and laughing about it until one of the boys was like, “wrong side!” and both of them bounded out of the train just in time. Hahaha. I remember such light-hearted moments with my own friends. We never seem to stop laughing around each other.
  • I spot a familiar auntie who is always dressed in a hip sporty outfit in the morning- wonder what she does- does she dance, does she exercise with friends? So many stories.
  • And this lady with pugs- do dog-owners get looks all the time? How do they feel about their pet getting more attention than they do as a person?
  • #questions
