If you’re the wife of Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and about to meet the U.S. President Barack Obama and his wife, First Lady Michelle Obama, you might try to impress everyone and use the most lavish and fashionable brands that you have. But this is not what Ho Ching did when she attended the historical state visit at White House in Washington.
Instead of dressing expensively, she proudly carried an $11 denim dinosaur-printed pouch made by 19-year-old See Toh Sheng Jie. Toh is a student of Art Faculty by Pathlight, a school in Singapore that supports the artistic talents of kids with autism and special needs.
Ho Ching with First Lady Michelle Obama
Although the 63-year-old executive is the CEO of Temasek and listed as one of the most powerful women in the world by Forbes, she didn’t hesitate to show the world that she is using a simple purse. In fact, many people reacted to the accessory she brought when meeting the Obamas and attending a very important assembly. However, Ching helped the kid and the foundation tremendously as the denim pouch is now sought-after on its online store. As a matter of fact, it already sold 200 bags in just 24 hours. The school is also in awe and feels grateful for Ching’s simple act of kindness.
The Denim Dinosaur-Printed Pouch
Jason, Sheng Jie’s father, revealed that his son might be having a hard time concentrating on things, but he perfectly knows how to draw and shape dinosaurs. If truth be told, this is the only thing that he can put his heart into focus. At first, Jason couldn’t believe that Ching supported his child by using Sheng Jie’s own-designed dinosaur pouch.

“The school texted us saying, ‘Madame Ho Ching brought Sheng Jie’s bag to the White House,’ actually we thought they were joking until we saw the news. We were very surprised,” Jason said.
Aside from the pouch, Sheng Jie also creates school bags, wallets, notebooks and cards with printed dinosaurs.

Owner Secretly Films His ‘Scary’ German Shepherd Befriend A Mailman
“He always gets overlooked as a dangerous or unapproachable dog.”
They say a dog is a man’s best friend and a video showing an unusual friendship between a mailman and a guard dog proves that this old adage is indeed true. The touching video was shared on Facebook by Michael Collins, the dog's owner after he noticed the mail carrier and his 9-month-old German Shepherd Dog.
Collins secretly films the sweet friendship between an anonymous mail carrier and his dog. The video, which quickly went viral, showed how the mail carrier intentionally got off his bike just to pet Collins' dog.
Here is the dog before the mailman's arrival.
Energy-generating Bricks Can Transform Homes into Efficient Machines
Imagine living in a home where the bricks give you your energy. Living Architecture has created smart bricks that can do just that!
As a society, we're becoming more and more conscious of where we get our energy from. Companies are now aiming to use more sustainable forms of energy such as solar and wind power. Living Architecture (LIAR) is one of those companies, and their latest innovation is "smart" bricks.
No, it has nothing to do with using bricks to browse the web. Smart bricks extract resources from sunlight, waste water, and air. And as is the nature of bricks, they fit together to create "bioreactor walls" that can be incorporated in building houses, public buildings, and office spaces.
