Singapore Fashion Festival

I didn't see much coverage of the Singapore Fashion Festival in the local media. Anyway, the German Stern magazine has a pictorial. Heh.

I did see models parading down a cakewalk at the atrium at Marina Square a week ago.
David Hockney

It appears that some David Hockney works will be displayed at the FOST Gallery at Kim Yam Road this month. I had seen some of his inkjet printer works exhibited in an old mill (Salts Mill in Saltaire) in Yorkshire in the mid-nineties. This should be interesting.

He is considered to be part of the British Pop Art movement.

The Drone Operator


This evening, I had the following scores operating drones. 4:0, 9:1 and 5:1.
Firstly, an flying explosive drone, then a mini-gun tracked drone and finally a four-barrelled mortar tracked drone.

The mortar tracked drone was breathtaking in its destructive power but I would have to learn to aim with it.

At the Frontlines


I have been playing Frontlines for the last few weeks and it is great! I once cleared a position in the Village map with a sniper rifle. 9 kills at least. One kill after another!

In the Roundabout map last night, I got over 10 kills with a mini-gun drone. There was one night, I placed the mini-gun drone on top of a building and dominated a position with over 10 kills.

In the Solar map last night, I got 2 kills with a pistol, 2 with landmines, 4 with the sniper rifle, 2 with the rocket launcher. 10:8. Heh. Funny! Pistol kills!

Meanwhile, I am learning to fly the helicopters.

A new lease of life for Battle Stations. I upgraded my Cargo Dirigible by two levels and I fitted a new meleƩ weapon: the pile driver.

Suddenly, my ship is very competitive again.

I set up my ship for baiting and it promptly sank a victim for 44,000 xp and I made level 66!

My pistons are doing about 4,300 to 4,500 damage on average. My pile driver does between 4000 to 6000.
