Blogging is a Chore!
For 2 months and a week I have not been blogging and inertia has set in.
Now with work starting, this blog-drizzle will soon trickle down into intermittant drops resembling those from a leaky faucet. Wait! That has already begun hasn't it?
I should consider hiring a maid to help me with the blogkeeping.
Anyway, since I have promised on Facebook that I will blog before work starts,
I had better get started.

Totally captivated by the beautiful aria
Amato ben tu sei la mia speranza
sung by Roberta Invernizzi as Ippolita in Vivaldi's Ercole s'ul Termodonte..

Sanctus Judas Thaddeus, Ora Pro Me!
Most holy apostle, Saint Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the Church honours and invokes you universally, as the patron of hopeless cases, of things almost despaired of. Pray for me, I am so helpless and alone. Make use I implore you, of that particular privilege given to you, to bring visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need that I may receive the consolation and help of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly that I may obtain an upper second class honours and that I may praise God with you and all the elect forever. I promise, O blessed Saint Jude, to be mindful of this great favour, to always honour you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you. Amen.

After more than a year of 'it's been a long time',
'we should meet up soon' and 'when are you ever free'
exchanges over Facebook, MSN and SMS..
Went to Food for Thought at Q8 for makan siang and kopi.. And then.. Decided to kaypo the spanking new Bras Basah MRT Station.. It's the deepest station of the entire MRT system and has the system's longest escalator at 41.3 meters.. Located just in front of my church, this project has been giving us a lot of problems since work started almost 10 years ago..
. The most likeable feature of this station has got to be its roof that doubles up as a skylight and landscape element - a water-covered glass skylight.. Viewed from street level, it is a reflection pool, from the station platform, it is an immense skylight.. What is more cool about this station is that its void is designed as a huge light reflector.. The sloping wall picks up the diffuse skylight and bounces light through huge slots into the adjacent platform space, which is below Bras Basah Road.. So even the deepest part of the station gets to receive natural light.. How eco-friendly!
