And I see your true colors Shining through I see your true colors And that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show Your true colors True colors are beautiful
Like a rainbow
(from A Song ‘True Colors’)
I remember the song when I saw this collage of colored bottles which was originally built as a hall divider in our hotel we stayed a couple years ago. From my table, I could see its color shining through the glass bottles.
And then I thought of amazing people with beautiful true colors. Like a rainbow…
Walking around at night with a steady drizzle in the old town of Hoi An, Central Vietnam gave me a feeling of romance. The lovely atmosphere -with faintly music coming from the cafés along the small streets -, was decorated with the hanging beautiful curves just above the heads, many more were displayed inside the kiosks. At that time and situation, I could not avoid my feeling that I missed my family, thousands kilometers across the ocean and hoped that they’re always alright. And thinking of my beloved ones made me smiling; because of them and remember a nice word
A smile is the curve that sets everything straight.
Inspired by the The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge with Curve as the topic of this week.
When the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge asks us to show a picture that has vibrant colors, there’s a picture directly dancing in my mind. Well, as part of washing the web with a rainbow of colors, I select this photo to be my contribution for this week’s photo challenge.
This vibrant colored building which is famous as The House of Tan Teng Niah, is located in the heart of the area of Indian community in Singapore. Being something that always screams for attention in the vicinity of Kerbau Road, this beautiful villa can be reached only about one minute walking from the Little India MRT Station.
Based on the history, Tan Teng Niah, a successful and prominent Chinese businessman, in the year of 1900 built a house in Little India, for his beloved wife. And in 1980 the eye catching house was being restored. This house also won the Singapore Institute of Architects Honorable Mention Award in 1991. Until now, it is one of the survived splendidly Chinese buildings in Little India.
Last time I saw this attractive house was on Deepavali or Diwali last year and it’s still like a magnet for the tourists to take selfie. Have you been there?
