Make a wish
Look hard into the above picture and you should see many white colour ball-like structures. I heard that these structures are known as wishing spheres. Each of these spheres is supposed to carry a written wish by the people of Singapore. I wonder who gets to write their wish on the sphere and how one gets to do so.
Later tonight, these wishing spheres will form stunning visual arts installations floating on the water (near the Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay).
When I was walking about nearby that part of Singapore with socialpest and Kunstemaecker, I remembered Kunstemaecker commented that these spherical structures looked like they were litters floating on the water especially from an aerial view.
I shall leave the final judgement of whether these spherical structures are works of art or pieces of litter to you.
But right now, I am feeling tired.
Earlier this evening, I had wanted to go for a walking tour of the Singapore River but due to not-so-good weather conditions, I decided to push my plans to next year. I keep my fingers crossed that I will get to go for the tour eventually before some unpredictable events of life step in to cause changes in those plans. Not that I am expecting any, but life is expectedly unpredictable.
The footsteps of year 2006 seem so close by now. It sounds so far away, yet it will be approaching in less than three hours time.
Before I digress, I end this post by inviting you to make your very special and personal wish. Think of it in your heart. Say it out silently in your mind. The wish has been made, and I wish that you will find that wish and it will come true.
Have a fulfilling and peaceful year of 2006.
