Dear reader,

The weekend greets us with open arms. If you haven’t got barristas in company, a picnic lawn with family awaits. Amidst the green, let’s spend some time in silence reflecting on the disasters of climate change today in crossword.
 
With freedom.
 
Sincerely,

Arts Infusion
Spend the first part of the Sunday afternoon chilling drinks and packing sandwiches into a picnic basket, then get set to lay on a lawn and watch a line-up of performances which opens with the Bedok View Secondary Angklung Ensemble in their glory of a previous win at the 2007 Heritage & Harmony Music & Dance Competition. Gamma:rays plays Gamelan, musically-gifted cousins Krsna, Govin, Dexter, Denise & Sheryl churns out Western Indochine tunes and the Orkestar Trio entertains with nusantara (Malay Archipelago) music.

TV: All Things Paper
Yesterday you watched Uganda, today you may not see Rwanda with its paper refugee shelters designed by Shigeru Ban, but get to see smaller structures made from paper. Paper is not just something for kids to play art and craft with or for Christmas pop-up cards, it is really a construction material. Tibetans and Japanese have always used paper to build their houses. Marvel at how flatness of paper transforms into three dimensions in tonight’s programme.

Tropical City State Thurs Sep 2

Dear reader,

 
Just things to do today. How did you like the crosswords?
 
Sincerely,

Tropical City State
 
  

Activity (all events are admission free)

 

Tech but not Tokyo at Comex, i.e the Computer Exposition. Have ears and an eye on Africa.
 
COMEX Show 2010
The big IT trumpet of the year is here again. With credit cards tying-up with products in a bid to entice your use of card over cash, and splashes of advertising and product write-ups bombarding pages of the papers, this already looks like something to turn your ears to. I will say it’s worth a visit even if you are not intending to buy a 3D TV set, well, since you already have a LED, LCD or plasma one. Go gawk at the pasar malam salesmanship on display, watch a 3D movie without actually having to purchase anything if you can withstand standing throughout a whole 90 mins or so with people buzzing around you like bees, or do the usual aunty price-comparison exercise putting to good use mental math you learnt in school, leaving fairly empty-handed but happy to have figured out the cheapest buy possible in the market. You might get so hooked that you find yourself going everyday this weekend. Ends this Sunday.

Supah Poke’, how are you feeling today? by Traseone x Zero x DMR (Ditch my Routine): An Art Installation
If you realise, this installation has a lengthy title and is done by an artist with an equally lengthy name. If you didn’t find that very funny, maybe you will the installation to be so. Presented in scenarios, the neon paste-on colours and Johnny Bravos render the ego-flattering effects of Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and other internet social conglomerates on users most comically. It makes your walk down the tunnel more than worthwhile as you get to places in the City Hall area through the labyrinth of the underground.

Localmotion – A Tribute to S-Rock by Kevin Matthews 
Kevin has written soundtracks for local flavoured films like "Mee Pok Man", "12 Storeys", "The Carrot Cake Conversations" and "Be with Me". I have not done my research to find if he has won any ‘best film music’ awards but his chart-popper "My One & Only" sure makes him one to listen to.

TV: Weird Or What (Debut) (PG)
Mysteries and strange phenomena I would call the wonders of God. As humans rationalise irrational happenings like how a woman survived a fall 50 storeys high to why rocks and boulders in the Death Valley desert move, I can only marvel at how intelligent God has made situation analysts to connect worldly facts and figures together so as to match a consequence.

Spices, one of the most important commodities of trade in the early days of this region are now kept growing in the many parks and gardens around Singapore. There is one at the fort canning which is having a walking tour this weekend. Yes, we all like to eat the Ngo Hiang your Nonya mama will lovingly roll, but few recognise the powder as a combination of cloves, cinnamon and ground fennel seeds. Find them all in this walk. Bring water, a hat, sunglasses and dress in sweat-tolerant clothing and comfortable footwear.

Hello ,

 

Wednesdays are gross because they are sandwiched between the blues (Monday blues) and the thank gods (TGIFs), making them pretty lukewarm. To shake things up a little, get ready for a tour across the causeway starting tomorrow without physically doing so, walk in South India without moving a leg and get around dog tags and treats. Join everyone else who are saying something about a gruesome accident..

Artist Kevin Bathman pays tribute to late Malaysian visionary filmmaker, Yasmin Ahmad drawing inspiration from her blog.

See visual art using black and white film stills from the oldest Malay movies. The work intends to portray the universal human emotions of chinta (which means ‘love’ in English), dendam (vengence) and ayermata (tears).
