“Always write down your ideas. It’s the surest way your dreams will come alive,” says Israeli-Canadian architect Moshe Safdie. As a student at McGill University, he turned his sketches into a masters thesis. What he credits to cockiness, the courage to ask, right time and right place, he pitched his thesis to the Canadian government. Habitat 67 was a born as Canada’s entry into the 1967 World Fair in Montreal. The intent was to create affordable, practical housing that encourages community. There would be natural light, city views and no art or sculptures distracting from its original beauty. Residents moved in and welcomed 35,000 daily visitors during the World Fair, leading to a ban on guests for 50 years (limited tours resumed in 2017). Safdie’s proudest life moment came in 1985. Threatening to demolish Habitat 67 due to high maintenance costs, its residents bought it from the government (the cost of tours goes back to the residents to help with upkeep). They didn’t want to lose the community they formed; that community which was always Safdie’s intent for Habitat 67.

Won a prize from a @kiss92fm contest - vouchers to @ajiyasg. Great reason to check them out, having passed by many times but never stepped in.
They seem to have increased some of their prices since I last visited a few months ago; the prices from the menu back then don't tally with what's on my receipt. 🤔

"I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning that's as good as they're going to feel all day."
The Story of Life & Reflections: Life certainly is a strange thing; You spend 6 decades of your life to unconditionally love your significant other and then one day that very life takes away your beloved one just as if the other half of you had never walked, breathed and lived a life on planet earth. ...So from that day forward all you can do is to look at the significant other’s reflections saved on pieces of paper also known as photographs and ultimately you seat in front of a mirror trying to imagine the reflection of your significant other kissing your forehead as if he has never left you at all.
A few pics of my travel buddy, Candy. She has always been very good with a camera and actually poses for at least one good shot everytime. The one with the flowers around her was her idea, not kidding, she led me there then looked at me like.. ummm, where's that camera of yours?
Fun Fact: I have fear of heights!
This photo was taken at a 20 storeys high building of one of the most unique HDB block (public housing) in Singapore. I had to set my perspective right before I finally decided to execute the shot and it’s pretty scary for me I would say. I’m risking my phone for this shot but it’s definitely worth it. I’m glad Jason was up to entertain my shenanigans!
I’ve always believed that you don’t have to restrict yourself to one particular angle or perspective when you want to photograph something. You need to allow yourself to have the freedom to explore and create something different. This place is really special to me because I’ve been here numerous time with many friends, be it local or international, and there’s a lot of memories forged here. So here’s one of the unconventional perspective of this commonly shot location. Also, don’t forget to check #WhenYaisGoesToYungKuang for different perspectives of my other posts. ♥️.
