Modern Art Failed Me Again

Visited the Tate Modern and the National Gallery today!

Modern art is either hate or love. I loved the fashion exhibition at Istanbul Modern but hated (maybe hate is too strong a word) the Tate. It's quite boring with no exciting installation. The only thing that caught my eye was a oversized silver platter (and by oversized, I mean bigger than a baby cot) with silver utensils, kitchenware and cutlery carelessly scattered most on one half of the platter. The description akin it to rice covering half the plate - the deeper meaning was so many people have utensils but yet starve. How apt. How sad.

On the other hand, I loved the paintings at the National Gallery! One can learn so much about fashion and not from the paintings.

All I Want for Christmas

If you want a penguin too, get it here.

The Quick Brown Fox

I just saw a mid-size brown fox outside the full-length living room window! At the corner of my eye, I saw something ran across the window, thinking it was a cat, I looked up. I got a pleasant surprise when the fox sat down, looked at me, and chilled with me for a good 15 seconds. I told him, "I was just asking about you this morning" (Chewy had previously told me that there is a fox in the estate.)

The fox looked very healthy so I guess I won't be rabbits hopping around the estate any time soon. ;)

It's True

Old sayings are so because they always hold truth in them. The ones you hold closest to your heart are the ones who cut it the deepest.

So one learns to, or at least hopes to learn, to become more indifferent.

Sparkling Water!

I forgot they bottle sparkling water in normal plastic bottles here and I took a sip, I hated it. 

I have to remember to always read before I buy!
