lego meets art

Growing up, I remember our house full of legos. There was a big plastic container of legos that my brothers would play with for hours, constructing different things and letting their imaginations go.  I remember stepping on random lego pieces on the floor and the yellow helmut head the lego figures had. I never imagined that legos could be constructed into huge lifelike sculptures like the ones I saw on Friday.

I had a chance to visit the Art Science Museum by the Marina Bay Sands hotel for the first time. They had two special exhibits, one was a mummies exhibit and the other was an exhibit by Nathan Sawaya called the Art of the Brick. I really enjoyed seeing how Nathan Sawaya used lego blocks for his art. I was really blown away by his creativity and talent.There was this one quote on the wall from him, where he realized that he had more fun sitting on a floor building sculptures than sitting in a boardroom negotiating contracts as a lawyer. I’m glad he chose to pursue what he was passionate about!Unfortunately, today is the last day of his exhibit here in Singapore. DSC_0361DSC_0363 DSC_0373 DSC_0376DSC_0381DSC_0385DSC_0387 DSC_0388 DSC_0390 DSC_0396 DSC_0402 DSC_0404 DSC_0406 DSC_0412 DSC_0415 DSC_0423 DSC_0428 DSC_0433

{happy birthday melody}

When I first met Melody, we were both lost at Yongsan base, trying to find the Jubilee picnic and I had not idea that our lives would become so interconnected through my time in Korea, after this chance meeting. A few months later, I met Melody again at a Jerusalem Ministry prayer meeting.  As our friendship grew, I found out that she was a certified teacher and told her to apply to my school.  She of course got the job, and I quickly found out how enthusiastic and talented she was as a teacher.

The next few years, we got to work together, hang out a lot as neighbors, and serve together. We went to the orphanage together on Monday nights and even went to Nepal on a missions trip to train teachers there. Now, we have our teaching blog, two apples a day and are in the midst of starting a non profit organization with two other amazing friends, Dyanne and Tammi.

Cheers to a friendship that continues to grow and challenge one another! Cheers to a fabulous blogging partner! Cheers to celebrating your beautiful life!
