Photo #366: THE END

February 28, 2013

Thank you to everyone who has taken an interest in my Photo-A-Day project which began on February 29, 2012 and finishes today. I’m so glad to have taken this opportunity to document a moment a day for the last year 🙂

There were moments of creativity and inspiration and there were also moments of desperation and laziness. There were days when I forgot to take pictures, other days where someone took the picture for me, and even some days where I lost pictures. My first Photo-A-Day project and I certainly hope it won’t be my last!

I leave you with my last picture. My favourite photo that I took in the last year – orchids at The Singapore Botanic Gardens – Photo #96. A mosaic composed of all 366 photos I took this past year! I hope you like it 🙂

Photo #365: Lovelies of 2D

The end of my Medicine in Society rotation is drawing near and I find myself back in the Fractured NOF Service to complete my project in creating a medical info brochure for the ward. Took a few staff pictures to include in the brochure, silly faces!

Photo #364: Swarm of Flies

February 26, 2013

Came home today to see a swarm of flies on one side of the driveway. Immediately thought, “Oh no, something died.” Sure enough, this poor skink 😦 I’ve only ever seen them twice in nature, once in my backyard 2 years ago and this one.

Photo #363: Filters

February 25, 2013

I didn’t take a photo today 😦 So here’s my first attempt playing with photo apps on my iPhone. I know many people hate the “Instagram look” but I think filters can make pictures look good – don’t you?

Photo #362: Salty and Sweet

February 24, 2013

We’ve decided that from now on, weekends will be cooking days – which will hopefully save us some time and trouble during the busy weekdays. Made a whole bunch of dishes today including baguette crisps. To top: roasted green grapes with walnuts, salt, balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Yummy treat!

Photo #361: Didn’t Die – Win!

February 23, 2013

Growing up, I discovered I had an allergy to many fruits and over the years have learned which ones to stay away from. Unfortunately, I especially love the fruits I’m most allergic to. After over 10 years of not tasting fresh, ripe, juicy peaches, I decided enough was enough. Had one today and only had a mild reaction – woo hoo!

Photo #333: Real Breakfast

January 26, 2013

After an intense week of early hours at the hospital, we finally have time to sit down and have a REALLY good breakfast. Open faced sandwiches on grilled ciabatta bread with turkey breast, garlic sauce, tomato, cucumber and Swiss cheese, and a side of salad with balsamic vinaigrette. Yummy!

Photo #327: Big Day Out of Garbage

January 20, 2013

Mike and I went to Big Day Out today! There will be a separate post about that later, but the amount of garbage lying around is unbelievable! Amazing that so many people can’t just take a few steps to one of the many garbage bins to throw out their trash.

 

Photo #326: Guilty or Not?

January 19, 2013

It was late and I was the only one awake. It had been 30+ degrees all day and suddenly a craving for cookies&cream ice cream came over me. So… I had some, yum! Do I feel guilty? Nope! Trick: Use a small ice cream scoop (1 tbsp) – looks like a lot but 4 tbsp is only 1/4 cup! 😀

Photo #319: I’ve Joined the Dark Side

January 12, 2013

I’ve been keeping an eye out for a comfortable pair of shoes for the hospital. A few pairs pairs at stores like Naturalizer and Armstrong & Richardson were pretty comfortable but not very stylish and quite expensive. Dropped into Crocs today without any expectations and voila! Found a lovely, extremely comfy pair for a great price 🙂 Although I am ashamed to say I now own a pair of Crocs… at least they’re not the hole-y sandal Crocs??
