Visit to Trick Eye Museum Singapore

Trickeye Museum Logo

Trick Eye is short for ‘Trick of the eye’, which refers to an art technique that turns two-dimensional paintings into three-dimensional images through the use of optical illusions. With that, 2D paintings on the museum walls, floors and ceilings appear to pop out of the surface and come to life. Visitors are more than welcome to explore the various themed galleries with their eyes, hands and even cameras. Step inside the paintings to complete a visual narrative with your creative poses, and watch a “tricky” story unfold before your camera. At Trick Eye Museum, you’ll be creating unforgettable memories with friends and family amid fun and laughter, with a dash of educational and cultural enrichment.

Thank you The Influencer Network and Trick Eye Museum Singapore for this wonderful invitation. I had tons of fun posing photos and upload on my .instagram account.

As a visitor, I will suggest that you should unleash your creativity and pose as many pictures to create special effects. Do enjoy yourself while taking pictures at Trick Eye Museum.

There are a few different theme zones in Trick Eye Museum Singapore. Namely – Unveil the mystery, Re-ignite the ‘Excitement’, Overcome the ‘Supernatural’, Immerse into a Fairy Tale romance, Escape into Fantasy and Explore a Trick World.

Here’s some of the photos taken at Trick Eye Museum Singapore.

Big Hero 6 movie review

This animation looks better than the comic version of Big Hero 6. I love this balloon version of Baymax. White, rubber balloon.

Although he is a bit clumsy (with the size), however, he can be lovable in his own ways. It also shows the transmation of Baymax from a simple robot with just 1 main function to a hero to save the day as being a part of big hero 6.

Do catch this movie on cinemas and laugh it out loud especially on Baymax portion. I will give this a 4.5 out of 5 stars . Great movie!

A Visit to Eurasian Community House on 20 July 2013


Singapore Heritage Festival 2013 was held from 19 July to 28 July 2013, all over Singapore. I was delighted that there was an opportunity for me to attend some of the guided trails in Singapore during this period.

I took part in The Eurasian Experience Open House & Tour at the Eurasian Community House at 139 Ceylon Road (near Dunman Road and Tanjong Katong Sec School area)

Beautiful ceramic painting of Portugal port near the entrance of Eurasian Community House…

Eurasion Heritage Centre is located inside the Eurasian Community House.

Eurasian Heritage centre is open from Tuesday to Sundays from 10am to 6pm, Closed on Monday.

The volunteer guide for Eurasian Heritage experience – Ms Michelle Tessensohn

Ms Michelle Tessensohn did a very good introduction to the Eurasian Heritage Centre and shared quite a lot of interesting Eurasian culture with the visitors. I didn’t know that she’s the great granddaughter of Mr Edward Tessensohn. Tessersohn is a German surname as I know sohn means son in German (eg Mendelsohn = Mendel’s son)

By the way, Tessensohn sounds familiar right? Hmm….

Yes, it’s One of the Singapore road near Balestier Road and Race Course Road area. The road was named after Mr Edward Tessensohn, a Eurasian who came from Malacca.

Do visit their showcase at Level 1 The Eurasian Experience and Level 4 The World War II – The Eurasian Story and Level 4 Roots of Our Community to find out more about the interesting culture. Europeans settled in Asia and married local Asians and their descendants are known as Eurasians. Heard that a lot of Eurasians are active in media industry such as Cheryl Fox (Channel News Asia), Class 95 DJ Jean Danker and DJ Vernatta Lopez.

In Singapore, there are also quite a number of roads that are named after Eurasians at around Kovan Road/Upper Serangoon area (Simon Road, Aroozoo Avenue), Little India Area (Desker Road).

I managed to see some beautiful Eurasian teenagers performing Eurasian dance such as Jinkli Nona. The portuguese folk music sounds very joyful and lively and makes people want to dance along with the music.

Here’s the music with the dance (in 1 of the youtube videos):

Picture of the beautiful dancers:

Tasted the traditional Eurasian sugee cake (heard it’s quite difficult to bake this type of cake) with the wonderful almond smell… freshly baked from Quentin Restaurant at Eurasian Community House. Yummy.

It’s good to try some Eurasian food to understand more about the unique Eurasian culture with the fusion of European and Asian taste.

Perhaps you can come to Quentin Restaurant to try out some Eurasian dishes such as Curry Debal (Devil’s Curry) and other delicious Eurasian dishes. Quentin Restaurant is located at Eurasian Community House, 139 Ceylon Road. You can visit www.quentins.com.sg to find out more about their menu, and promotions.

Quentin’s Restaurant – OPENING HOURS​: Tuesday to Sunday, CLOSED ON MONDAYS

Lunch starts at 11:30am – 2:30pm

Dinner 6:30pm-10:30pm and they do open till 12midnight During Fridays!

Commemorating 50 years of Greening Singapore Music Video Featuring Big Bro & Dr Jia Jia and sung by Lorraine Tan

I am sharing this video as the intro was very interesting from Dr Jia Jia’s dialogue with his big bro. It is not easy to have 50 years of greening. In fact many places has celebrate 50years of anniversary such as National Park Board, Ngee Ann Polytechnic and Church of Singapore this year.

Hope people can save more trees and be more environmental friendly. Hope you enjoy this video and Lorraine Tan’s song.

Parting Glances: Singapore’s Evolving Spaces Exhibition at National Library Building

Parting Glances: Singapore’s Evolving Spaces Photo exhibition will be held at level 7 National Library Building at 100 Victoria Street, from 25 July to 31 August 2013. It features 6 different neighbourhoods namely, Seletar Camp, Lorong Buangkok, Macpherson, People’s Park Chinatown, Queentown and Pulau Ubin.

Many things and buildings have to make way for redevelopment purposes. It is difficult to part them and its rich history. With an 
aim to capture and preserve history as it is unfolding, Parting Glances brings Singapore’s delicate balancing act of forging the future while preserving the past to centre stage through these 24 photos and the accompanying launch of a hardcover book with the same title.

Do visit the exhibition soon. For more details, please visit http://golibrary.nlb.gov.sg/Exhibitions/48672/Parting_Glances__SIngapore_s_Evolving_Spaces.aspx
