From seeing the Northern Lights to writing a book, many Singaporeans have laid down their plans for the things they want to do during their lifetimes.

Before I Die, a global art project, was brought here last year by a group of National University of Singapore medical and nursing students last year, including Jonas Ho and Zachus Tan, both 21.

Chalkboards with the tagline Before I Die: My Last Year are being set up in shopping centres, hospitals and universities this month for people to put down their thoughts on what they wish to do.

 

For some, it is just spending time with family and friends, finding peace within themselves and catching the sunrise and sunset every day. Others plan to use up all the money in their bank account.
