  3. it’s funny that i stumbled upon this blog when i was researching on shaun gladwell.

    it also felt really good to read this by a fellow singaporean while i am down under.

    perhaps the world just got a little smaller, and i feel somewhat back home again.


  4. Hey Mr Lim. Jessica’s post on boonmily told me that you actually had a blog, so stopping by just to say Hi!


  5. hi Boon

    thanks for your review of my exhibition Trace way back when. most appreciative, and certainly the no. 42 as the answer to Meaning of Life gives me the chuckles. i enjoyed that moment of irony in the book. more importantly i have left a handbound, limited edition book Trace for you at the Substation. do pick it up

    Look forward to hearing from you.
