Made a visit to ArtScience Museum of Marina Bay Sands Singapore last weekend, definitely not my first trip nor will it be my last. Amidst my busy schedule these are the little trips that I’ve enjoyed making in life and the exhibits explored were Titanic – The Artifacts Exhibition and Andy Warhol – 15 Minutes Eternal.

Waiting in anticipation
15 Minutes Eternal Vs Immortality. What's your pick?
Queued in anticipation for 1 hour plus before embarking on my Titanic exploration and the fact that it was the last day of Titanic exhibition probably contributed to the long queue. “The idea of waiting for something makes it more exciting” as quoted by Andy Warhol and so it was, exact sentiments.
Yes! I have the ticket in my hands.

Most of us would have watched the movie “Titanic” that is currently screening in Singapore cinema. In the 1900s, Titanic is one of the largest and most luxurious passenger liners at the time and was considered by many to be unsinkable. Her maiden voyage was her last voyage and discovered many years later in 1980s lying 13,000 feet below the surface in the Atlantic Ocean. And so April, 2012 marks 100 years after its sinking and till today after the Titanic remains an enduring legend.

Liked below two pictures and named the first, Iridescent Petals and the second, Flutter Flapper Butterfly. The second picture gives me a feeling that I’m floating in a mystical dream land.
Flutter Flapper Butterfly?
His quotes intrigue me such as “the world fascinates me” and simply out of curiosity would very much like to ask him some questions.
Andy Warhol says
What kinda love do you want?
What’s love gotta do, gotta do with it? Which do you prefer fantasy or reality love?
Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder?
A much debated topic then again who’s to say who’s a beauty or not?

Hot and humid weather for the past few days and staying in air-conditioned places are inevitable. At last, it rained today.
