photoblog image Murals of Tiong Bahru 4

Murals of Tiong Bahru 4

The gent on the left is an astrologer cum fortune teller of sorts. Those with a more discerning eye for Chinese religious artifacts can tell that the deities on the altar are very accurately rendered. I cannot say for sure, but having visited several temples in Singapore and Penang, I am inclined to agree.

 

And another timelapse on the recent windy days seen (and experienced) in Singapore.

One born every minute...
Ayush Basu: Hmm... in Singapore? Not too sure on that, Larry.
Another really nice mural - and enjoyable timelapse!
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Elizabeth. The artist originally started as an accountant!

Bonne journée

I especially like the parrot overseeing the event. I wonder if it joins in and offered it own advice?
Ayush Basu: It might surprise a lot of people, Alan, but even today, a lot of residents of this modern city put their faith in unsubstantiated inputs.

There's a speedy shimmer in the pool smile
Ayush Basu: Oh yes, he was not too perturbed by the early morning strong breeze, Alan.

Fortune telling has always been a big pull for people Ayush, they just want reassurance..
Ayush Basu: I agree with you fully, Chris.

I love this on both accounts and I think that swimmer is fit for the Olympics wink...grin...
Ayush Basu: He was certainly very dedicated, Astrid. Although the wind here was not as bad as that in the Netherlands, an early morning swim in the relatively cooler water with the nippy breeze does make one want to look for some warmth grin
They are all very beautiful, I like the delicacy of the colors
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the comment, Claudio.
These paintings are terrific.
Ayush Basu: And to think that this artist is a trained accountant, Brian!
These murals are wonderful.
Ayush Basu: And to think that this artist is a trained accountant, Michael!

This series is really delightful, Ayush. Loved the people scurrying by in your time-lapse
Ayush Basu: I am pleased with your remarks and hope that I am able to show some of the lesser seen side of Singapore, Lisl.
You may not know this about me, Ayush, but besides being a great lover of WIND, I am also very fond of astrology.
Ayush Basu: What a coincidence then, Ginnie - I managed to get two of your favourite elements today. Thank you for sharing that bit of personal info with us.
I have not been to Tiong Bahru in a very long time. smile
