#44 | Alive Museum Singpore.


Have you seen pictures all obrt social media about a particular museum? Cause I have and I've been dying to go Alive Museum ever since I saw the photos flooding my timeline. Lucky enough, I got invited to Alive Museum Singapore thanks to omy.sg! So I brought JunYu along with me to celebrate National Day in advance.

Opened in 2009, Alive Museum is the original 3D visual illusion museum from South Korea. It is also the world largest chain of such an entertainment concept, where 3D art comes alive with clever painting, shading and drawing techniques. Different from normal museum, you are strongly encouraged to touch and take lots of photos of the artworks there! It is the largest Illusionary 3D Museum here in Singapore at about 10,000 sq ft, is currently its 15th branch. 
And for the Korean drama lovers, The Alive Museum in Jeju appeared in an episode of the popular 2011 Korean drama Heartstrings. The famous Seoul Broadcasting System (SBS), is a corporate partner of Alive Museum in Korea.

Anyw, there's FREE WIFI ACCESS in the museum. Take the photos with your phone and upload straight away onto your social media. Does that sound good already?!

So we went in for about 30mins and thought it ended because of the hidden doors. We were really disappointed at first when we were about to step out but we decided to go back and see if the museum is really that small. And omg, we were so so so relieved we walk back! We found a lot more rooms and we were overjoyed!

These are only a few of the paintings.
There are actually over 80 masterpieces currently in the museum, of which 9 are locally themed and unique to Singapore. What's more, 30% of the paintings will be changed every 12-18months. For special occasions like Christmas and Chinese New Year etc, there will also be special exhibits.

#43 | First week of school.

Friday. This week passed by so fast. They say time pass really fast when you're enjoying right? I don't know if I'm enjoying but I definitely prefer what I'm doing now. I'm still able to concentrate and not get distracted that easily in class, and hopefully I'll remain like this till I graduate from NAFA. I'm glad I'm getting along pretty well with my classmates. I mean the few I always stick to in class... Yeah, I'm glad I have them or else I'm gonna be loner cause I hardly initiate a conversation with strangers..

But then again....

I've been thinking about it. Why do I not like strangers to this extent? Is it because of my low self-esteem? Or is it just because that's me. And still, I can't find an answer. He said I am probably affected by the imaginary audience around me. And I thought he came up with that term himself until I went to search about it.

"The imaginary audience refers to an egocentric state where an individual imagines and believes that multitudes of people are enthusiastically listening to or watching him or her. Though this state is often exhibited in young adolescence, people of any age may harbor a fantasy of an imaginary audience.

David Elkind coined the term "imaginary audience" in 1967. The basic premise of the topic is that people who are experiencing it feel as though their behavior or actions are the main focus of other people's attention. It is defined as how willing a child is to reveal alternative forms of themselves. The imaginary audience is a psychological concept common to the adolescent stage of human development. It refers to the belief that a person is under constant, close observation by peers, family, and strangers. This imaginary audience is proposed to account for a variety of adolescent behaviors and experiences, such as heightened self-consciousness, distortions of others' views of the self, and a tendency toward conformity and faddisms. This act stems from the concept of ego-centrism in adolescents.

Examples of imaginary audience: A teen that is affected by imaginary audience might be self-conscious and may worry about what other people think of them. They may change their clothes constantly before leaving the house to make sure they are presentable for everybody that is watching them. They may also spend extra time on make-up and hair to better appeal to the audience they feel they need to impress. A teen may also change their wardrobe to match “trends” that start. They may also believe that they are better than everyone else and everyone is constantly looking at them and judging, feeling the need to look “perfect”. A teen who has a pimple on their face will think that everyone will notice and that it is covering half of their face. (This is one very common example of Imaginary audience.) In reality, only a small percentage of those people have any interest in a person’s activities, and a maturing worldview will usually reduce the impression that this imaginary audience exists. Some people, however, maintain this misapprehension well into their adult years."

Don't really think everyone adores me, in fact it's the opposite, I think everyone secretly hates me. I guess only the part about self-consciousness and worry about what other people think.

#42 | I love the way you lie.

On the first page, of our story, the future seemed so bright. Then this thing turned out, so evil. I don't know why I'm still surprised. Even angels have their wicked schemes, and you take that to new extremes. But you'll always be my hero, even though you've lost your mind.
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn, but that's all right because I like the way it hurts. Just gonna stand there and hear me cry, but that's all right because I love the way you lie. I love the way you lie, oh, I love the way you lie.
Now there's gravel in our voices, glass is shattered from the fight. In this tug of way, you'll always win even when I'm right. Cause you feed me fables from your hand, with violent words and empty threats. And it's sick that all these battles are what keeps me satisfied.
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn, but that's all right because I like the way it hurts. Just gonna stand there and hear me cry, well that's all right because I love the way you lie. I love the way you lie, oh, I love the way you lie, oh.
So maybe I'm a masochist. I try to run but I don't wanna ever leave. Till the walls are going up, in smoke with all our memories. 
The morning, you wake, a sun ray hits your face. Smeared makeup as we lay in the wake of destruction. Hush baby, speak softly. Tell me you're awfully sorry that you pushed me into the coffee table last night so I can push you off me. Try and touch me so I can scream at you not to touch me. Run out the room and I'll follow you like a lost puppy. Baby, without you, I'm nothing. I'm so lost, hug me. Then tell me how ugly I am, but that you'll always love me.
Then after that, shove me, in the aftermath of the destructive path that we're on, two psychopaths. But we know that no matter how many knives we put in each other's backs, that we'll have each other's backs cause we're that lucky. Together, we move mountains. Let's not make mountains out of molehills. You hit me twice, yeah, but who's counting? I may have hit you three times, I'm starting to lose count. But together, we'll live forever, we found the youth fountain.
Our love is crazy, we're nuts but I refused counselling. This house is too huge, if you move out, I'll burn all two thousand square feet of it to the ground, ain't shit you can do about it. With you I'm in my fucking mind, without you, I'm out it.
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn, but that's all right because I like the way it hurts. Just gonna stand there and hear me cry, but that's all right because I love the way you lie. I love the way you lie, I love the way you lie. I love the way you lie, I love the way you lie.
