hi sonny,

i love the pieces and the painterly feel.
i was just wondering why you used
"eric khoo is a hotel magnate"
as the title.

i'm quite partial to his films tho' not a big fan
and i know he comes from a rich family.
maybe tts why he can become a film director?

thanks all! pin - hmm the pieces touch on issues like the gap between public and private personas of politicians; many from privileged backgrounds but having to appear men/women of the people( not just in singapore) - i thought something similar goes on with eric khoo - rich background, but always making films about heartlanders. doesn't mean its wrong/hypocritical - just seems an interesting phenomena :)

interesting.
i never thought about that.
thanks for the insights.
i like it.

it makes me look at the paintings now again
with a different angle.

and makes me want to watch
royston tan's films again somehow
hehe.
