Blogger friend Lam Chun See's latest blog on "Then, Then and Now – Singapore River" is awesome.

Find out more at "Good Morning Yesterday" blog to learn and enjoy.

A twist to a whole new experience is moving to a new horizon for blogging.

The type of blog topic may not be applicable to every subject (eg foodie blog) though.

Chun See's Ideas @ Work has introduced a creative and innovative ways on "Ideas @ Blog"!

In a nutshell, the components on this blog are:

1. Old photo of the same place - Contributors from friends
2. Second shot of the same place - By Char Lee aka, Icemoon
3. Third shot of the same place - By Lam Chun See
4. Quiz questions

However, with the use of FotoZup , "It captures the sense of time in a truly unique and interesting way – Same people, same place, different time."

A "Funky 3D Ways" to blog, photo, reminisce fond memories, and family entertainment for everyone to enjoy. Unlimited creativity and fun activities with an interesting theme to bond friends and families.

A selection of FotoZup submitted by these contributors here:


Getting the old photos of Singapore from UK friends you received and post them on GMY as "Spot the Difference" and other forms of "Memory Games" is a fun activity for everyone young and old.

The "Then and Now" concept with the help of Icemoon as the "Second Shot" to capture the exact same spot "then and now" adds on the second denomination of the memory game blogs. Its fun for history and heritage all of us to learn.

Like the popularity of 3D TV, movies and other media channels, the 3D is the Third Dimension to add as People, Places and Journey.

Cheers to the "Third Dimension Blog" or "3D Blog" for the help of our "memory aid" for topics about same people, same place, different times to reminisce different experiences and different journeys.

Very interesting pictures, Mr Seah. However, a lot of people I sat with, are no longer around. How do I get that same place, different time shot?

I once was photographed peering from behind a mother-in-law plant and my father was holding me. Now, the props are gone and my father is no longer around and I am too huge and round to crouch behind a mother-in-law plant.

When I was young, the plant looked so big. Now, I might have a crash landing if I try squatting behind it. All the innocence is gone too. Now, this same pair of eyes are old and world-weary. The brain is not that quick too.

Back then, I was given a cauliflower perm before Chinese New Year. I have stopped having a perm for more than 20 years! Maybe I should pose and use photoshop to do the trick, Mr Seah!

The "3D Blog Game" is challenging as all conditioned things are ever changing. Keep the fond memories to "Spot the Difference" and "Mix-N-Match" memory games.

Eg: A photo with cauliflower perm of you holding an obsolete home phone 20 yrs ago and now holding the latest hairdo fashion with a handphone. That's "Then" and "Now".

Oh dear, pls don't photoshop to fake the photo. It would spoil the fun. Lots of creative ideas to look for things around for 3D stuff. "Third Dimension of the Third Kind" is the human mind, not technology. Cheers!

The Council for Third Age promotes active ageing to enable seniors to achieve a better quality of life in all the six dimensions of wellness – social, intellectual, physical, vocational, emotional and spiritual.

My "third age" is a "Close Encounter of the Third Kind" (CE3K) of "The Third Dimension Blog" with our fellow bloggers to share with us.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2011. Cheers!
