National Day Astronomy

On this Singapore's 40th National Day, does anyone have any concerns about the crescent moon in our flag? LOL :) Logo of Tomorrow.sg, designed by Xiaxue. The geeky flag designer's worst nightmare: Scalability! Anyway, I'll be going off tomorrow on some cruise to nowhere, so there'd be probably no new entries for the rest of the month... Update (!): I was just watching the Parade after missing it for a few years, and was quite astonished by the song (Home) from Dick Lee, MuZhi and Kit Chan. It's goooood! Not pretentious, not teenybopper (unlike this year's song.) The English version doesn't really work, though. This seems very comparable to I Still Call Australia Home, and is probably even better...woohooo! Update (!!): Rockson has a somber entry on the fireworks display (warning: very course language.) This guy is a gem, I tell ya...

Anyway, I'm still in Taipei and extending my stay here; will be back next week. A typhoon is coming so I'm hoping I won't get blown away tomorrow morning. Technically, if I construct a pair of wings, it is technically possibly to fly.

And I just realised this blog looks really bad with a 1024x768 screen!

Vancouver's great, btw! Amy is wise to go there hahaa

Hey, you know your post about the unique postcards?

Well, my family just received one! Hehe.. Mum had no idea what they were saying because all it said was: "Dear___, Hope this postcard wins so you can come to Singapore for free. Love___"

And i wonder what do Van, Alaska and Taiwan have in common for goodness sake...

jeffyen said...

My goodness Alison, you got spammed! Tell me your address so that I can send you one. I promise to put your name in the blanks lol

Amy, there's nothing wrong with the moon, but it's supposed to represent a 'young country'. What happens when the country gets old[er]? The design is stuck!


I'm only flying on Sunday. Hurricane Talim just came and went. It got blocked by the mountain range and couldn't decide where to go. So it linged for a while, and then split in two. Weird stuff...

The countries have in common in that I just had the great privilege in visiting all of them! lol
