Singapore Heritage Shophouse No. 40

Happy Easter!  I am definitely feeling homesick this morning.  Easter is still a big holiday in my family.  We usually gather at my grandmother's house, and as all of us cousins have grown up, the tradition has evolved.  Even though there is one in the new generation, my grandmother still has all of her grandchildren (the great grand is only 1.5 now) hunt for eggs.  Now that some of us are 30, it has turned into more of a full-contact flag football game than egg hunting.  In any case, my brother said that he hip-checked one of my particularly competitive cousins to get to the winning egg, and dedicated it to me.  Awwww.  I hope everyone had a wonderful day with family and friends.


  1. I love all of your work, Shelby, but this painting is especially pleasing to me. Beautiful!

  2. Beautiful painting. What interesting architecture!

    Love your post about your family. Sounds like so much fun. No wonder your were homesick. Are you permanently in Singapore?

  3. @ Virginia - We are here pretty much indefinitely. Overall, the benefits are awesome, so I really can't complain. But sometimes you do get homesick when you are so far from home and the familiar.
