Because Quinn Miller is a genius and deserves to go viral…
Today the sun was shining bright in Singapore. I could see it from the windows of my classroom, where I was teaching all day.
My timing, as always, is excellent.
I could also see this beautiful patch of green.
It covered one of the underground garage entrances, and was a welcome break in the glass and cement office park.
You see the stairs leading to the grass? I wondered if people actually used them…perhaps sit in the sun on days that are a little less tropical.
So I asked.
Apparently Singapore always has weather like this. No cooler season that drops the temps below even 80 degrees. That’s when I knew — I could never live in this island paradise.
(My hair told me so.)
Greetings from Singapore!
It took exactly 24 hours of travel time, but I’ve arrived on the other side of the world. And since we crossed several time zones, it’s already the wee hours of the morning Sunday.
(Don’t worry — I’ll get that time back on the way home.)
My room is at the very top of one the hotel’s three towers and overlooks the city. Here is a taste of what I can see:
During the drive in from the airport, I also discovered quite nearby the Singapore Flyer, a large ferris wheel similar in scope to the London Eye.
I may need to check that out in the morning.
What am I talking about it? It’s morning already! Time to get some sleep and adjust to Singapore time.
The Egg is headed to Singapore today for a business trip.
My stay is regrettably short. The weather forecast is stormy. But this is my hotel.
I think I can make this work.
It’s Throwback Thursday!
That means folks are posting old photos online and celebrating times gone by.
It’s appropriate to mention here because throwback photography of me has found its way on my Facebook page.
Why, you may ask? Well, let’s just say today is a bit of a ‘throwback day’ for The Sticky Egg.
Here’s to getting stickier and stickier!
Seems like we spend a lot of time these days debating what’s in the food we eat….and depending on the day, landing on different sides.
It almost kills the taste.
Photographer Caren Alpert takes a different — or should I say much closer – view. She uses an electron microscope to look at the foods we eat to reveal different landscapes, textures and patterns.
She makes the ordinary exotic. And maybe it’s just lunchtime…
But she’s making me hungry.
I was at Disney World today — well, at a resort hotel — but didn’t get a chance to hang with Mickey or Harry. So I played with Photo Editor at the airport instead.
That’s a chandelier at the Loews Potofino Bay Hotel — cropped and flopped and posterized.
I think it’s kinda magical.
