Pegashoes

Pegashoes, an artistic recreation of Pegasus using the soles of shoes.

This artfully rendered version of Pegasus, the mythological flying horse, was created by students (I imagine the art majors) from the University of Santo Tomas and is on display in Gateway mall in Cubao, Manila.

I thought it would be fitting to post this today, as a scheduled post, since I’ll be flying myself, likely somewhere above Alaska or the nearby Pacific Ocean when this goes live.

Fare the well, Philippines.  I’ll write a longer post about my final impressions of the Philippines later.

Cool Tree Sculpture at Vivocity Mall in Singapore

My wife and I were at Harbourfront to meet a friend for dinner. She is visiting from the US on a business trip. She spent the day at Sentosa and while we were waiting for her we took a look around Harbourfront Mall. We’ve been all around Vivocity but we didn’t realize there was another mall attached the port where you get on the ferries and cruise ships. It’s nothing too special, though there are some nice shops down there.

When we left it to cross over to Vivocity there was this really cool tree sculpture placed between them. I took the following photos on my iPhone. Not bad for a 2 megapixel camera with no flash, huh? I think I’m getting the hang of this thing finally.

I wish I knew the backstory on this sculpture but I didn’t see any plaques or informational signs about it posted anywhere. If anyone knows and can fill me in through the comments section that would be great!
