Scissors, Mushrooms and Math

Let's start with this cute little guy.
And this one. Pulau Ubin is full of cute creatures!
On the way there, we saw some interesting branding on the boat. Mushrooms unite! Their website is even better, hover over the menu to see Asian branding in action.
These adventures were had with my parents, who are shown here doubting the merits of $2.90 Scissor Cut Curry Rice. Don't worry, only the meat is scissor-cut. And the scissors have been replaced since the war.
In any case, we then explored the other end of the food spectrum.
Above if a remake of Nasi Lemak, which won't make any sense to many of you.
Chocolate on the other hand, always makes sense.
To burn off the calories, we went for a walk in the neighbourhood, visiting our local terracotta warrior.
We then noticed something unusual. In addition to the door abacus...
There was a mysterious alley abacus. Perhaps used by the alley cats for alley math? Leftover from when the scissor-cut guy had new scissors? Strange.
