Tracing the Footsteps of History: National Gallery Singapore

For some, a national monument. For others, a new Instagram-worthy spot. Beyond the glitz and glamour of the National Gallery Singapore, its marble steps carries the weight of Singapore’s history to where she is today.

A Ballot Box’s Soliloquy

A Ballot Box’s Soliloquy

They say your vote is secret. That, according to my knowledge, is true. Not even I can see your votes churning away inside me, much like how you can’t see how your heart beats physically. Occasionally a glimpse of light shines inside the otherwise dark interior of mine, but no eye can peer into the...
