Through My Nephew's Eyes

When I spotted these two photos among many other impressive shots on my young nephew's cellphone, I just had to share them.

He has quite an eye for photography, don't you agree?

Santa

I didn't get it at first until the tour guide told us that this ginormous statue  is actually a cheeky Santa holding a butt plug! I thought it was a Christmas tree!

The Butt Plug Santa
This controversial statue of jolly old St. Nick standing in a square at the end of a busy shopping street in Rotterdam stirred up a huge debate among politicians and residents, reigniting the timeless question of what constitutes art.


I’d just hate to be the parent who has to explain to their child what Santa is holding!

Funny or offensive?

Concubine Lane

The above photo was captured at one of the three lanes named  Concubine Lanes in my hometown Ipoh.

It is said that during the colonial days, rich Chinese miner tycoons and British officers kept their mistresses here, away from the watchful eyes of their wives, hence the name!

Old-timers whiling away the time at the coffee shops nearby often regale bemused tourists with stories of beautiful ladies beckoning from behind red-curtained windows, and furious wives storming the streets!

Cat On A Bike

We stumbled upon this weird cat, in tight spandex shorts and a hot pink top, on a bike in a random place on a sidewalk when we were in Brussels.

Created by Alain S├ęchas, this sculpture  titled “La Cycliste” cost the city of Brussels about 100,000 € back in 2005.

Hmmm, a cat with boobs for USD111,329.50?!

 Cool or a waste of tax payers' money?
