[080204] my new curtains....


& e ugly prison window grilles that they hide....


decided to get new curtains now that I have a 'permanent' room in this house after living in it for ~9.5 years. 200 free Zo cards collected over e years + ~$2.00 worth of scotchtape + 1 hole puncher later....a BIG FAT SHOCK for my parents *grin* my curtains advertise e following: Nescafe, Absolut Vodka (love their creative ads!!), Apple iPod, Kit Chan's musical production 'Forbidden City', Singapore Art Museum's Rodin sculpture exhibition, Republic of Singapore Navy's contest for naming their new ships, Fruit Tree apple & aloe vera, peach & orange juice, NDP 2002, Mitsubishi cars, some holiday resort in Bintan, tourism in Australia, 'Positive Lives' HIV awareness campaign, The Economist, Volvo cars, Sharp AQUOS LCD TVs, some credit card which I forgot, & lots more =)

290104 290104a

realised how little I know about this tradition, like what e two candles right at e front are for, & why there has to be entire 'stalks' of sugarcane (leaves & all, which at approx 3m in length makes it kinda hard to carry back from e market) among e offerings
