Night Festival Singapore 2017: Convolutions by EZ3kiel

Night Festival 2017 - Convolutions by EZ3kiel

The Singapore Night Festival returns for its 10th at the Bras Basah-Bugis precinct with a spectacular light projection, art performances and installations, and complimentary museum entry till midnight. The festival is spread amongst five zones – National Museum, Armenian Street, Cathay Green, Singapore Management University and Singapore Art Museum. New for this year, you can also go on a festival bike trail with bicycles borrowed from the National Museum.

This particular light mapping art installation on the facade of the National Museum by Frenchman Yann Nguema wowed many at the festival opening. It was one of the best light projections I have seen in Singapore. Titled Convolutions, the projection will be on for all nine days of the Night Festival. This particular piece was adapted from the artist’s iconic piece titled Evolutions that was show on Cathedral St Jean in Lyon, France, as part of the Fete des Lumieres (Festival of Lights), the world’s oldest and grandest light festival, last year. New elements added to the showpiece include a lion.

Night Festival Singapore 2017 takes places from 18 till 26 Aug, with most performances happening on 24-26 Aug (looking forward to Globe by Close-Act Theatre).

Botswana – Milky Way at the Safari

Milky Way in Botswana
After an exciting afternoon of safari photography at Mashatu Game Reserve, we spied a hint of the milky way appearing up in the skies. Stoked, we looked around, ascertained that there were no animals (especially predators) nearby, jumped out of the car for a quickie shot. It was the fastest milky way photography I have ever done ;)

I’m looking forward to Christmas…

Xmas - Kids in Snow
Popped by Tanglin Mall’s Magical Christmas activity to soak in the festive mood over the weekend. Well, the foam snow is the closest thing we can get to the real thing in Singapore lol. It was nice watching the kids playing, so carefree and happy they made me want to dive right in. What is the best thing you remember about Christmas? Are you doing anything special this yuletide season? :) Xmas - Kids in Snow I’m wishing upon a star…Xmas - Kids in SnowXmas - Kids in SnowXmas - Kids in SnowXmas - Kids in SnowXmas - Kids in SnowXmas - Kids in SnowXmas - Kids in Snow

Iceland – Aurora Borealis in Akureyri

Aurora Borealis in AkureyriI have heard so much about it, and witnessing the Northern Light (Aurora Borealis) in person for a first time was nothing sort of surreal. It was my first trip to Iceland, first visit to Akureyri, first night chasing the lights, and first time lucky, woohoo! The lights were so strong we could clearly see it dancing in the sky right in front of our naked eyes. I was freezing to death (blow wind, blow!) but this one-in-a-lifetime experience was worth every strand of standing hair on my body. More photos to come…wish me luck :)

xoxo from Iceland brrr…
