Sing50

Since it is the 50th Singapore birthday this weekend, the musical industry also made a tribute concert to 50 years of Singapore music at the National Stadium yesterday, 7-Aug 2015 with thousands of musicians performing to approximately 45,000 people (I am glad to be one of them).

I took some photos from my seat:

Not the Same Everyday

I almost didn’t get this photo had I lost the struggle to wake up early one Sunday morning! 😁

Background story: I noticed the sun was pretty well-aligned with the train tracks during my morning commute to work and I thought it might make an interesting photo. But I couldn’t do it but to wait till the weekend.

Besides looking out for such occasions, you could also use an app to tell how the sun is rising/setting on any particular day. Earth rotates at an inclined angle and (I think) this means the sun doesn’t really rise from the same place at all times. In Singapore, it seems to come from the southwest direction in the beginning of the year and slowly shifts to northwest as we approach June/July.
