Frame Mat

Recently I went to a frame works shop at Clementi Ave 3 (next to Clememti MRT) to make a piece of frame mat for a watercolour painting. The size of the mat was 68cm x 50cm with a window 47cm x 35.5cm at the middle. The lady at the shop used a calculator, a pad of paper and about 3 minutes to get the quotation. It was $45.00 per piece and took about 7 to 10 days to complete. I was shocked and reminded her that I just wanted a piece of cardboard with a window at the middle. She confirmed it was the price, so I left.

Later I went to Sertra Trading at Upper Paya Lebar Road, the helpful ladies there charged me $15.00 per piece. I cut two pieces, to keep one as spare (shown above).

Lengkok Bahru

Happy memories...
2 weeks ago while I was waiting for my car to be serviced at Leng Kee, I visited our old house at Lengkok Bahru Block 56. We were staying there from 1963 to 1975
. All the blocks at this area have been demolished and rebuilt except blocks 56 and 57.

Busker at Ghim Moh Market

I saw this young busker singing outside Ghim Moh Market this morning. He was blind and without his right hand. At that moment I was thinking why I can't play some guitar pieces properly when I have both.
