orfit - I heard an auntie uttering this word while she was chit-chatting with her friend in Hokkien. Actually she meant office. 

Suddenly I have this urge to visit Ipoh. The last time I went there was a few decades ago. So, I looked up for some information on Ipoh. Then I thought if I go Ipoh, then might as well go Penang too. Maybe even up north to Thailand ........ However, knowing Myself, my sudden urges rarely materialize.

Did you see my photos in the several posts below. I am quite satisfied with them. They were taken with my few-months-old camera, which cost $300+. But videos were not too good. I am still learning how to use some of the functions.

This one was taken with a handphone.

A pleasant surprise

This is Yu Pik Leng (余碧玲), one of the younger artistes who came to perform at the Kreta Ayer People's Theatre a few weeks ago.

These are three excerpts she performed.

She first came to perform at Singapore's KAPT in December 2007, together with the Guangzhou Cantonese Opera Troupe. I took a photo of her then.

This time I also went backstage to take photos. I saw her doing make-up in a room and took a photo (the one at the top). Then I got a pleasant surprise. She said she recognized me as the person who took her photo back in 2007.

Wow! She has amazing memory. 

I don't think you can remember someone, a stranger at that, who took your photo more than 6 years ago and probably you saw him only for about one minute. Can you?

Here is the 2007 post : http://www.frannxis.blogspot.sg/2007/12/photos.html
