food court at Punggol

140608_Punggol
Last Sunday, I was hungry so I stopped at this place in Punggol for a quick bite before attending the first-month baby party for my new grand niece at the Punggol flat. The weather was so hot but the foreign workers were resting comfortably under the highway / viaduct just outside this food court.

five-minute quick sketch

140605_TP
Today I was having lunch with a design student who wanted to have a consultation with me on his current project. When he was having his lunch, I did this sketch to show him how I pick up lines, shapes and textures for a quick sketch. We spent almost 2 hours to discuss about his project. We both enjoyed the session very much and I think he learnt a lot from the discussion.

KOPI at Singapore General Hospital

140604_KOPI
I visit Singapore General Hospital (SGH) quite often these days as my mom is undergoing daily treatment since early May. Doctor is very surprised and tells us my mom is a very stoic and optimistic lady. I often take my lunch at this KOPI eatery located near the hospital entrance while my dad and the family helper are attending to my mom at the treatment clinic. The hospital is always crowded so to find a seat for lunch and sketch is a luxury.

I was speaking at the National Design Centre last Saturday and the topic was "Dialogue: Can Creativity be Taught?". It was a fun-filled event with presentation, interaction and sketching!

I did this sketch from the speaker's view. Richard Koff was taking the video and he was sketched twice here since he moved from left to the centre.

elderly at the polyclinic

It was so crowded on a Saturday morning at Polyclinic. I needed my cholesterol pills so I had to go to see the doctor. So many old ladies on the wheelchairs and most of the seats were reserved for the elderly.

at the polyclinic

140508_Clinic
This morning at the super crowded Polyclinic for a regular blood test. Our public health care is affordable but they really need to solve the overcrowding problem. I am sure they are people who avoid seeing the doctor even when they are ver...y sick knowing it is time consuming and troublesome. I was also worried for the young families with newborn babies at the public clinic where the visibly sick adults not wearing masks at all.

I am sure the public clinics can be improved in its circulation and physical design layout for different patients.
