#rememberinglky 27 Mar 2015.
#rememberinglky I went up the HDB block, to see how large was the Yishun crowd that had come to honour the late Lee Kuan Yew. The memorial service started with the Singapore National Anthem, modified...

"Bountiful Garden" (#365: Project 365 Sketches)
2013, Tue 31 Dec. Three hundred and sixty-four days ago, I remember telling myself that attempting this personal project was like tackling a 2.4km run round a track. The first few rounds would be easy. At some point there would be the inevitable mental hump...

"Flower blossom" (#363: Project 365 Sketches)
2013, Sun 29 Dec. This sketch was inspired by an actual tattoo on my colleague, and her story: Dance was the passion of her youth. But such dreams were aside in the interest of marriage, children and family. Decades went by. Kids all grown up. Her husband p...

Hey Chuck, I remember watching that documentary when it was released in 2009. Made me depressed for a while, to be honest.

What an awesome resource. Genuinely high-quality free footages (if free is available). Mix of CC-BY and a "no-attribution needed" variant.  

From their About page: "Videvo started as a relatively simple idea with one goal in mind: to become the world’s #1 source for free stock footage and motion graphics. Whilst we can not yet say if we have achieved our goal, we are certainly on the right path to doing so. Much of the footage you’ll find on the site is produced by us, but there is an increasing number of clips now being uploaded by members who want to give back to the community. This concept of community sharing and helping others is our eventual end-goal for the site; by creating a system for free exchange of video clips as well as help and advice through the forums we will be helping videographers to grow their talent, share ideas and network more effectively."

That is really frustrating, as you made it so easy for the image to be legally shared/reused.  Thank you for sharing this example

"Waiting for the Satay man" (#364: Project 365 Sketches)
2013, Mon 30 Dec. He was with me, waiting for our Satay order. The stall was doing brisk business. He closed his eyes occasionally, amidst the lively and noisy hawker centre. I occupied myself by sketching him. "Waiting for the Satay man" (#364: Project 365...
