The journey of frustration to source for UV lights in Singapore, though its not cheap and rare too, and no uncle we’re not from some Government agencies or money counterfeiter. And how to make the water glow in the dark? That one is a challenge that we burst our brains out, but the eureka moment was pouring yellow Pelikan highlighter ink, and we’re trying to mix with various type of oil, from olive oil to Dettol wasn’t a great turn out until came about the Chinese praying oil Crystal oil that is. Mixing with other colours of different highlighter brands, and the TV studio became our lepak place and chemistry lab. And my primary job is to create a scaled illustrator of the tree as our virtual reference, I hate maths so I just let Wayne do the math and .ai file is damn big.
