  • 3. SKETCH Otters at the Marina Bay (2014)
 Sketch and colour on paper 16.5 × 11.7 inches
 < At Singapore's Marina Bay area, a family of otters have been spotted frolicking from time to time. They appear to have adapted pretty well in a man-made environment, finding food and shelter just like when they are in their natural habitats of mangroves and river mouths. The reported sighting of otters integrating into such a highly urbanised area is surprising and thought-provoking. It makes one question what drove them to adopt these artificial sites as homes, and whether it could be due to the destruction and dwindling of natural habitats. A mesh of natural (right) and artificial(left) habitations serves to question the ideal proportion of their co-existence. >

 Sketch on paper
 16.5 × 23.4 inches 
 < Singaporeans are known for their casual dress- ups, donning simple t-shirts and shorts paired with flip-flops. Being a typical Singaporean, I often wear my Havaianas flip flop. To me, they are not like other brands of flip-flops, for they are casual yet not sloppy. >

 <In the past, when one is near roadsides, a sound of a bell meant happiness for it signalled the arrival of ice-cream. The bicycle-operated ice-cream stall was always spotted fully equipped, with it strapped with umbrellas for shelter and lugged a cold storage filled with ice cream each sold at just a dollar. Happiness was that simple. >

  • 10. SINGAPORE LANDMARKS (On the Yellow line) Sketch on paper
 16.5 × 11.7 inches I live along Holland Road. With my house being just a stone throw away from Mass Rapid Transport, I use it frequently to commute to the various streets in Singapore. I primarily use the yellow line for it leads me to the streets which I frequent often. In the sketch, I have marked out a few stops on the yellow line which cover Singapore's streets that are of touristy and personal significance. This includes Holland Village, Botanic Gardens, Haw Par Villa, HarbourFront, Marina Bay and Esplanade. Every time I pass by or land upon these stops, I think of the little uniquely Singaporean icons on those streets. They remind me of my deeply rooted Singaporean identity and stir up fond memories of visitation and sightseeing with family and friends. When defining "your street", mine would be a collation of the different streets of a country which are steeped in local culture, play a daily functional role, and hold a significant meaning in peoples' past and present lives. The yellow line of the Mass Rapid Transport best sums up my street, for it covers the stops which I frequent, along with the streets that are of purpose and meaning to me.
