the one-hundred and fifty-ninth episode of ventriloquy details an opportunity for my team of architects to invite you to consider visiting Temasek, where you can learn about the culture, history, and ecology of Singapore.
in this 3.4 MB download, we are extremely privileged to share with you that Temasek is one of only five estates across the entire grid to be selected as a venue for the Orange Fashion Photo Contest, jointly organised by Orange Island and Prim Perfect magazine.
thanks be to God :-)
moreover, Temasek is the only Asian-themed estate in the contest. in the words of the organisers themselves:
Today we're looking to the East ... not just the mysterious remote East of legend, but the thriving, vibrant culture of the modern Orient, conscious of its proud history. Can you take a picture that captures all the flavour and spice of a key Eastern land? That's your task for today!
i am very pleased to read this description of Temasek, because either Saffia Widdershins or Diva Regina - who penned those words - has obviously taken great pains to explore and understand the ethos that went into the design of the island. that time and effort is greatly appreciated, thank you!
best wishes with your entry, and thank you for visiting Temasek!
