A Hero : A beautiful ballad

This beautiful ballad by X Factor Finalists 2008.
So exhilarating.
Excellent collaboration.

I have made this movie.
Incorporating the music with these fishes and corals.
From some of my old and new clips.
To provide a wonderful therapeutical feel.

Here's to share with you.
Enjoy the music and the view.
Keeping them here, in my ' for keepsake' blog.

Try singing along....

There's a hero,
If you look inside your heart,

You don't have to be afraid of what you are,
There's an answer,
If you reach into your soul,
And the sorrow that you know will melt away.

And then a hero comes along,
With the strength to carry on,
And you cast your fears aside and you know you can survive,
When you feel like hope is gone,
Look inside you and be strong,
And you'll finally see the truth that a hero lies in you.

It's a long road,
When you face the world alone,
No one reaches out a hand for you to hold,
You can find love,
If you search within yourself,
And the emptiness you felt will disappear.

And then a hero comes along,
With the strenght to carry on,
And you cast your fears aside and you know you can survive,
when you feel like hope is gone,
Look inside you and be strong,
And you'll finally see the truth that a hero lies in you.

Lord knows,
Dreams are hard to follow,
But don't let anyone tear them away,
Hold on,
There will be tomorrow,
In time you'll find the way.

And then a hero comes along,
With the strenght to carry on,
And you cast your fears aside and you know you can survive,
when you feel like hope is gone,
Look inside you and be strong,
And you'll finally see the truth that a hero lies in you.

That a hero lies

Did U Know...
Our Southern Island reefs are ALIVE!
The reefs in Singapore harbour close to 200 species of hard corals.
Amazing marine life abound.
Such as clown anemonefishes (better known as 'Nemo') that's one of our Hero in this clip
and more.
These reefs can be reached within minutes from the city centre.
Check out 'wildsingapore's photostream' on Flickr for some pictures of the places.

Singapore Toy Games + Comic Convention

Watch the toys come to life..

Returned a 2nd year on 14-16 August 2009.
Only 3 days at
Suntec Convention Hall.

I love archery.
And was glad to see Wii Sport now has this in their selection of games.
Maybe, I could revive my old sport and enjoy this just as much.
Not having to worry about shooting without an armguard.

Be creative with this 'Creative Ink'

Monopoly to boggle the mind

Be thrilled by what roll out from these containers

Hulking replicas

These guys were tempting us with their
delicious looking realistic cakes and buns.

This looked Martian

Simply Toys that are not so simple

Coin pouch

There was a competition.

Young and talented contestants.

The contestants had to sketch a portrait
on the computer.
Given only a limited time frame of
about 7 minutes during the finals.

Both of these portraits were by the winner, Naomi.
This was the winning portrait,

I guess, whichever toy one may adore.
These cute, cuddly, lovable furry ones,
will never loose their charm.

As real as it gets.

There were many more exhibits.
This event will bring out the child in anyone.
Many good games to keep one occupied at home too.
'Exhibitors Highlights' will give a more
comprehensive view of the exhibitors.

'What is that?'

With the world aging population at a formidable figure.
Showing care and empathy to our love ones and the society,
will be the most gracious thing to do.

Watch this meaningful video.
And be touched by the scenes.
It shows what one would often find hard to say.
This will affect one or the other in some way.

I was determined to find out.
What is Alzheimer's Disease ?
Informative and good illustrations
I have learnt that..
Alzheimer's destroy brain cells, creates problems in relation
to memory and behaviors severe enough to affect work,
lifelong hobbies or social life.
I have assembled some information from various sources
to do a brief compilation of this dreadful illness.
Using this post as a recap should I forget.
According to the report, Alzheimer's can strike people
as early as in their 30s.
But is extremely rare.
This is called younger-onset Alzheimer's.
The common known risk factor for
Alzheimer's is increasing age.
Most are 65 or older.
Likelihood of developing Alzheimer's doubles about
every 5 years after age 65.
After age 85, the risk reaches nearly 50 percent.
Another risk factor is family history.
Find out more from this link: Risk Factors

1. Memory changes that disrupt daily life
2. Challenges in planning or solving problems
3. Difficulty completing familiar task at home,
at work or at leisure
4. Confusion with time or place
5. Trouble understanding visual images
and spatial relationships
6. New problems with words in speaking or writing
7. Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps
8. Decreased or poor judgment
9. Withdrawal from work or social activities
10.Changes in mood and personality
Thanks to these sites I now have a clearer
view of what is alzheimer's
I would like to help spread this message.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
Could a cup of coffee a day delay Alzheimer's
Yet to be determined.

Entertaining Clarke Quay

Visiting Clarke Quay, time and again is always fun.

I was having my dinner at one of the restaurants,
and was watching the bumboats
cruising up and down the river.

They are river cruises and river taxies.
Some of the huge Chinese junks (tongkangs)
were refurbished into floating pubs and restaurants.
The junks reminded me of my previous post on
The Halong Bay in Vietnam
As night falls
Food and Restaurants
Packed with people.
Along the lovely river.
The brightly lit bridge.
Brightly lit in different colors.
Be amazed.
I was lucky.
A performance was planned.
It was an acrobatic act and was very entertaining.
These are some sections of the performance I took.
The whole performance lasted about half an hour.

Original sound track.
Look out for events at the Clarke Quay.
You'll never know what's next...
