George Carlin

George Carlin made his way as a comedian of the 70’s & 80’s & he wrote something so very eloquent & so very appropriate, as an observation to ponder. George Carlin died early in 2008.

“The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less.

We have bigger houses & smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much & pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom & hate too often. We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life not life to years.

We’ve been all the way to the moon & back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We’ve done larger things, but not better things.

We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait.

We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less & less. These are the times of fast foods & slow digestion, big men & small character, steep profits & shallow relationships.

These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies & pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill.

It is a time when there is much in the showroom window & nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you & a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete.

Remember to spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up & leave your side.

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart & it doesn’t cost a cent.

Remember, to say, ‘I love you’ to your partner & your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss & an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.

Remember to hold hands & cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

And always remember, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by those moments that take our breath away”.

⁃ George Carlin

Nice mix

Stylish & attractive mix – the colour of the sofa, the blanket in black and white, that covers the seat, the low glass table, the stools that are striped – the whole combination looks great!

Vintage

Sometimes I find it very appealing with the romantic vintage style, a little French, a little feminine, and a lot of flashbacks.

Black and white

When shooting for different purposes, it’s easy to zoom in on a corner & style it to get a reasonably finished impression. And black / white decor always hits home with the audience. Simple & nice!

Durian

Singapore’s official fruit is the durian. Some people regards the durian as having a pleasantly sweet fragrance, whereas others find the aroma overpowering with an unpleasant odour. The smell evokes reactions & the persistence of its odour, which may linger for several days, has led to the fruit’s banishment from certain hotels & public transportation. Despite the stench, durian is considered to be extremely healthy.

The Esplanade building next to Marina Bay is inspired by this “beloved” fruit.

Plants

It’s always nice with welcoming plants at the entrance – here in a nice plant box with legs for the height. Looks great when contrasting so well with the facade.

Baklava

Baklava – an addictively tasty & crispy phyllo dough cake with nut filling that must be tried. Especially the Turkish variant that’s not soaked in syrup, but just very crispy. And have it preferably, together with black strong coffee.

Curtains

What would a room look like without curtains – they really do a lot for the experience. To reinforce the ceiling height, make sure to attach the rails as close to the roof structure as possible.

While we’re waiting for life & safety to return & vaccine to be available for all, we’ll have to put all travel plans on the shelf & dream about exciting places & locations – by going online instead – to curb the desire for wanderlust.
