Vivi

I don’t think I’ve ever introduced Vivi in this space, so here she is.

Vivi is my digital-lomo camera, also known as the Vistaquest 1015 R2 (Let’s not start on why I name my stuff).

I love her because she provides a balance between the exciting suspension of film, and the agony of waiting. I can take pictures with her without knowing what they’ll look like, making me increasingly excited, but my curiosity is satisfied the moment I reach home and plug her into the computer. A fine balance between suspense and waiting 🙂

Speak To Me, Walk With Me

I walked out of the house with a plan in mind, thinking I knew where I was going.

Guess what? Things change. What I wanted to do could not be materialized. Feeling rather aimless, I wandered around in the rainy city for a while.

By chance, I walked past the Museum, and on a whim, decided to step in to see if there was a new exhibit since my last visit.

There was! Amanda Heng’s “Speak To Me, Walk With Me”.

My Civil Service Card was in my wallet. I flashed it, and spent the next 2 hours alone in the museum.

It was an intimately soul-refreshing experience.

 

And I’m just thinking… Life can be like that, can’t it?

We might think we know where we’re headed, right up till the moment when things get thrown off course. Then we might grumble and curse, and feel lost for a while. But if we keep our minds open and exploratory, beautiful surprises might appear, and who knows? Everything can turn out for the better.
