mrbrown: L'infantile terrible of Singapore
Blog that pokes fun at the national education and other Singaporean idiosyncrasies.

  • Excerpt: When I was Chief Minister, there were men dying of starvation and because of ‘beri-beri’

  • For two hours, we toured Singapore and we estimated there were two ten thousand men sleeping on the pavements

  • You can’t write a letter to the Straits Times; if there is a shadow of criticism, it’s not published

  • Better for podcast comments to be found in one place there

  • Enough to feed the three families that have gathered for a little weekend dinner

  • There is fried snapper in sweet and sour sauce, stir-fried beansprouts sprinkled with crushed salted fish, stir-fried chye sim in garlic and ginger, prawns fried in batter, fried fritters stuffed with fish cake, and the lovely chicken and abalone in oyster sauce (simmered for hours in a slow cooker)

  • I know that price tag sticker nirvana is possible, because I have seen those cool stickers that Borders bookstore uses with the glue that leaves no damage (unless the tag has been there for a long time)

  • Doc Childre, Teaching Children to Love Harmonizing heart and brain through love is what can establish a complete intelligence, a complete self, where a child can look at life and realize there are no dead ends, there are always possibilities

  • Julie Marie Love is the best medicine, and there is more than enough to go around once you open your heart

  • It ignites your whole system so there's no drag, no resistance, no thoughts like "Do I have to?" coming from the head to sabotage the power of your surrender

  • Mother Teresa There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this world than for bread

  • Igor Stravinsky In order to create there must be a dynamic force, and what force is more potent than love? Rainer Maria Rilke Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart

  • LeGuin from The Lathe of Heaven Love doesn't just sit there, like a stone; it has to be made, like bread, remade all the time, made new

  • Vincent Van Gogh Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much perfoms much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well

    ai : let's love while we're living.

    moving back and forth between Painter 7 and Photoshop.

  • .../whose existence is for our despair and that alone;/ (Through the trees there is a huge black panther, blending in with the night, fangs already bloodied.) /...who punishes us for reasons beyond our knowledge, eyes alight with with lucid animosity;/ (The man whips through trees in thicker areas where the puma can't fit.) /who takes us from our children;/..

  • Since there will be more emphasis on color, the lineart isn't extremely detailed

  • NINE Special Effects! At this point, if there are effects like mist or smoke that also interact with the foreground, they will be added

  • On this step, there's a bit of light mist, added on background and foreground layers

  • If you click the two-colored circle in the Layers Palette, there's your options

  • After all, just like no stroke of a line should be arbitrary, text shouldn't just 'be there'

  • Whenever there are word bubbles, I usually draw them the same way I do lineart and fill them as well

  • In this case, there aren't any, so

    Encyclical Letter "Deus Caritas Est"
    God is love. First encyclical letter of the pope, given on 25 December 2005.

  • First, there is a certain relationship between love and the Divine: love promises infinity, eternity—a reality far greater and totally other than our everyday existence

  • First there is the word dodim , a plural form suggesting a love that is still insecure, indeterminate and searching

  • Starting from the depths of his own sacrifice and of the love that reaches fulfilment therein, he also portrays in these words the essence of love and indeed of human life itself

  • There are other, similar classifications, such as the distinction between possessive love and oblative love ( amor concupiscentiae – amor benevolentiae ), to which is sometimes also added love that seeks its own advantage

  • Even if eros is at first mainly covetous and ascending, a fascination for the great promise of happiness, in drawing near to the other, it is less and less concerned with itself, increasingly seeks the happiness of the other, is concerned more and more with the beloved, bestows itself and wants to “be there for” the other

  • There is only one God, the Creator of heaven and earth, who is thus the God of all

  • The history of the love-relationship between God and Israel consists, at the deepest level, in the fact that he gives her the Torah , thereby opening Israel's eyes to man's true nature and showing her the path leading to true humanism

  • Blessèd babe! what glorious features -- Spotless fair, divinely bright! Must He dwell with brutal creatures How could angels bear the sight? Was there nothing but a manger Cursèd sinners could afford To receive the heavenly stranger? Did they thus affront their Lord? Soft, my child: I did not chide thee, Though my song might sound too hard; 'Tis thy mother sits beside thee, And her arms shall be thy guard

  • Hopeless immortals! how they scream and shiver, While devils push them to the pit wide-yawning Hideous and gloomy, to receive them headlong Down to the centre! Stop here, my fancy: (all away, he horrid Doleful ideas!) come, arise to Jesus, How He sits God-like! and the saints around Him Throned, yet adoring! O may I sit there when He comes triumphant, Dooming the nations! then ascend to glory, While our Hosannas all along the passage Shout the Redeemer! Isaac Watts T HERE is a land of pure delight Where saints immortal reign, Infinite day excludes the night, And pleasures banish pain
