The Art of the Brick Exhibition, Singapore…one of a kind LEGO exhibition

Hailed as one of CNN’s top 10 Global must-see exhibitions, The “Art of the Brick” exhibit features Nathan Sawaya’s traveling collection of awe-inspiring and thought-provoking large-scale LEGO sculptures. Both playful and amazing, a typical, common toy is elevated to the status of refined, fine art through Sawaya’s creative ability to transform LEGO bricks into a new level of awesomeness.

The captivating sculptures which ranges from whimsical to complex are amazingly elaborate and will present a new perspective on imagination and creativity. Check out the swimmer, T-Rex, portrait of Hitchcock, painting of a bowl of fruits. The kids and big kids alike, are sure to be delighted with the grand displays of vivid colour and creativity.

If you’re in Singapore anytime between now till 14 April 2013, make a beeline for the ArtScience Museum, this is an awesome chance to see this exhibit for yourself! This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

City Suites, Jiaoxi Maple Leaves Hot Spring Hotel, Yilan County…I felt ahhhhmazing

If it’s your goal to escape anything and everything causing stress in your life, take a trip to Taiwan and visit Jiaoxi Maple Leaves Hot Spring Hotel in Yilan County. Around an hour’s drive from Taipei, this is a tiny town with fantastic hot springs.This place is the best respite from work, technology, trendy crowds, malls, school, and so forth.

The room is very spacious, can accomodate at least 4 people!! and the double beds are HUGE!

The hotspring is nice and clean, not very crowded. On the ground level I think there are about 4 different pools. These are common for both genders to share, so swimming attire need to be worn. Each having different temperatures.  So test the waters out and see what you’re comfortable with. Ipersoanlly like the pool at the rooftop, where nudity is mandatory. There, in the coldness of the winer air and the slight drizzle falling on my face, I am truly relaxed in the soothing waters of the hot spring. It’s heaaaaaven.

The hotel is kind of like Jiaoxi’s navigational icon…it is packed in every direction with dozens of eateries, restaurants, health clubs and railway and bus stations, all within easy walking distance. Speaking of eateries, directly opposite the hotel’s entrace is a row of street food stalls. The one to the far right facing the hotel serves up great tasting and fresh seafood at reasonable prices.

I felt ahhhhmazing. And it’s so good for your skin, your heart, and your soul! This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
