    Ginie, in Hebrew "Moshe" is pronounced "MO-sheh" - Hebrew for Moses. My dad, Maurice, is Moshe in Hebrew.

I think moshi is a Japanese food - maybe the red bean paste pastries or something. I know I've heard the word before.

But that's why I thought is was so funny!


Okay, just googled this - Moshi moshi is what people in Japan say when they answer the phone! Mochi is the red bean pastries!

And now we know!

    There's always something new and interesting springing up there. It makes me want to move Singapore up higher on the list. Thank you!

    Well is the "e" pronounced in Moshe Safti? It sure is a curious looking building, and I can't begin to imagine the weird shaped rooms. I agree, the bridge looks like a model of DNA. The "boat", well at first I thought it looked like a surfboard, but than I noticed there was more above.
Really curious architecture.
Glad one of you was lucky at the casino. The shopping center looks interesting too.
Wow, I'm getting some education on SP. Singapore and Australia from you, and Egypt from Claire.
Thanks so much for the tour.

    Wow, quite a difference from the boxy buildings I'm used to. Thanks for posting this.

    What an interesting blog, and such great pictures! MS is a Canadian architect of course: Habitat at Expo '67, Canada's National Gallery . . . and he taught at Harvard for years (including my BIL). Our Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto has a Liebeskind "explosion" on one fašade which creates similarly bizarre room shapes . . . not so beautiful as the lotus!

    Enjoyed the blog. At least the canal wasn't like a sewer, despite the toilet flush!!
