State of mind 6

lyrical and fluid

the blue sail articulates 

the wind 

at once free 

and restricted 

by which way the wind blows 


State of mind 5

Earth calling Houston

we are orbiting 

heavy metal?

Standing above the clouds on Zugspitze

Literally, a bird’s eye view. Standing 2,962m above sea level on Zugspitze

Standing above the clouds
2,962m above sea level to be exact
is awesome.

Not of the “this-burger-is-awesome” variety
but the divine inspired, to be exact
it’s awe-inspiring.


It is a sea of cloud
meeting the horizon of blue sky

mountain peaks
cast shadows over it.

Where? Really?



I showed this picture to some friends. At a glance, they asked whether it was the Mediterranean. Really? The closest it gets to the Mediterranean is this heritage town also starts with the letter “M”. Can you guess where this is?

Here’s a clue…

And the unrefutable clue…..













Yup… Malacca or Melaka (local reference) is where it is. 

Picture reference:

1. Malacca River 2. Colourful trishaws waiting for fare at The Stadthuys Complex 3. Jonker Walk 4. Christ Church, Melaka at The Stadthuys Complex (built 1650, residence of Dutch governor and his officers then) 5.Melaka Art Gallery within the same complex.

a new year wish…

"Swing Me, Mama" by Dominic Benhura at the Singapore Botanic Gardens
“Swing Me, Mama” by Dominic Benhura at the Singapore Botanic Gardens

For all, a new year
filled with joyful abandon
melded with trust
and held by faith.

Like a child
throwing itself full swing
safe in the grip of its mother’s
loving hands.

Have a
new year!

what? where? it’s what it is …

is it a brinjal?
is it an eggplant?
is it an aubergine?

it’s brinjal – in South East and South Asia.

is it a fruit?
is it a vegetable?

it’s a fruit – strictly scientifically speaking.

but cooks use it as a vegetable
in savoury cooking…

does it matter?

what's in a name?...


it still is what it is
it buds
it flowers, it fruits
it ripens
it buds..

we recognise it
as what
we know

the earth
still turns
on its own axis.
