Droid & elephant sighting


It’s the month of counting down to the start of my long leave.

It’s also the month that I was compelled to get a new phone. My old motorola L7 couldn’t survive the drop from the bookshelf in a buzz of vibration. Hence, I finally jumped on the smartphone bandwagon with a Droid. It’s amazing how so many technological functions could be squeezed into a compact pocket or evening purse size, with a cute little green android robot logo. I also learned that motorola licensed the mark “Droid” from George Lucas’ company. Too bad the phone’s exterior doesn’t quite look as cute as the name suggests!

It’s also the month that I visited the newly reformed Sentosa, thanks to the drive in by jy. It’s really quite magical in the cool evening air. And the exhilarating Jurassic Park movie music blaring in surround-sound in the background really psyched me up to visit the theme park. One day.

Thereafter, it was this geek’s unexpected encounter with one of Dali’s elephant sculptures! Never mind about not getting to go Figueres; in a globalised world, weird art can be found in the oddest of places. Still I felt it shouldn’t have been placed in the location where this photo was shot (perhaps this is just a temporary location):

Perhaps this could be a more suitable location:

This space reminds me of the lovely arches in ancient churches and feels somewhat like a modern sanctuary; probably a work-in-progress, it has very few passers-by and is very quiet, quite a contrast from the rest of Resorts World.

Ironically, the other end leads to the rambunctious entrance of the casino.
