Travel Theme: Dance

5 May

When was the last time you danced? This week’s theme, dance, has inspired me to write this piece and recall the last time I did. And it felt damn good.

Both the dancing and the occasion.

I used to dance when I was little. I took ballet lessons, was active in school performances and was a member of my major’s dance troupe in University. When I started working, my friends and I would enjoy a night of dancing to cap the working week off and welcome the weekend. Continue reading

Travel Theme: Light (Passing Through)

30 Apr

I’m posting yet another blog on this week’s travel theme challenge, “light”. I have quite a few pictures in my phone that deserve to be in this entry. If you’d like to see my first entry, it’s right here.

I simply love this week’s theme. I am digging Ailsa’s blog and her weekly travel-themed challenges. Gives you that much needed inspiration for a post.

Anyway, here’s my second post…

Travel Theme: Light

28 Apr

I think I may have been overly excited about last week’s “Travel Theme: Contrast” challenge that I interpreted it differently. I posted several pictures of the Marina Bay Sands (MBS) lights show here in Singapore.

My take on it was the light provided the contrast against the night sky, creating this magical (and menacing) effect of Luke’s (and Darth Maul’s) lightsaber(s). From afar, they look like several laser lights dancing in the sky from which appears like a… hmm… a troubled spaceship out to get us poor earthlings.

Anyway, for this week, the theme is light and, as soon as I read it on my Notifications (Ailsa’s blog), I quickly scanned through the pictures in my camera album for something that represents light, apart from those of the MBS lights show. And I have ’em, I’m glad!

Have I told you I love lights shows and sunlight? Yeah, I do. Images of sunrise, gorgeous sunsets, cottony clouds or even hazy ones are my favourite iPhone snaps.

Travel Theme: Contrast

21 Apr

It’s been a week since I first encountered this “Travel Theme” but haven’t really gotten to it (being a newbie here on WordPress) until today. I thought I’d give it a try since it’s a pretty interesting challenge, like the “Weekly Photo Challenge”, which actually gets your creative juices workin’ each time!

This is my first post, based on the “Contrast” theme. Thanks to Ailsa for coming up with an interesting, blog-worthy challenge such as this!

Seated across the Marina Bay Sands, along the benches of the Merlion Park, my hubby and I pulled our iPhones and captured the lights show. Beaming from the SkyPark (the highest point of hotel), the lights danced through the night skies, probably beating Batman’s night-light Bat-signal.
