temporary perfection.

jim denevan uses sand, earth and ice as his canvas to create some amazing art pieces! seems like a big pity that they get erased with the weather, though that "fleeting moment" idea does seem to add to its beauty!

art food, food art.

we've got tons of ice cream shops in singapore, from the $1 ice cream bread sold by uncles on their motorbikes to the more expensive gelato shops. however, we've yet to see ice cream shops selling only popsicles! popbar in new york has taken the old-school popsicle to a whole new level. 
vanilla splash
coconut chocolate

they look tooooo good to be eaten, i just want to stand in front of the shop and stare at the rows of popbars all day!

a merry heart does good like medicine.

hi everyone,

here's a funny yet meaningful read to start the weekend!

Christian funnyman Michael Jr. has performed on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and the Comedy Central network. Inspired by God to not just "go out there to get laughter from people, (but to) go out there and give them an opportunity to laugh", he took his jokes to unlikely venues - prisons, homeless shelters and safehouses for the abused and HIV patients. During his interview with charisma magazine, he recounted:

In an adult prison, I'm sitting there praying: "(God), I need a joke right up front, so I can be funny - immediately." I was going to say, "You guys are a captive audience!" But because I was afraid, I didn't do that one. 

But there was an old white guy right up front (in the audience) named Moses. He had a white beard, so I looked at him and said, "Moses, when I read about you in the Bible, you were doing better than this. What happened?"

I said, "Moses, this is what I want you to say, 'Let my people go.'" 
The whole room burst out laughing, and we had a fabulous time from that point on... 

... In the Samaritan House a guy approached me and said, "I want you to know I haven't laughed like this in over 20 years, since I was diagnosed with AIDs." It was at that moment that I knew this thing was bigger than just going and telling jokes to people.

have an awesome blessed weekend everyone! =)
