Outfit | Quench X Tiong Bahru Heritage Feista 3/3

DSC_6187

This the last of the collection of the murals for Tiong Bahru Heritage Fiesta. That adorable little goldfish that bobs at the surface when it tries to sucks its food. Did you own one too? I had one which did not do too well after a couple of months as it wasn’t easy trying to maintain the water condition.

Strangely, this wall mural also seemed to have the same algae problem which plagued my fish tank.

DSC_6225

I liked this mural the best as the goldfish looked very realistic and not to mention really cute when it is blown up to such magnitudes.

I don’t think you need me to tell you where my outfit inspiration was from! Head to toe, I was either in H&M or Mango. I am such a huge fan of these high street brands along side Zara and ASOS.

I was wearing a H&M vermillion blouse and Mango white pants completed with a H&M leather belt and Mango white pointed heels. The loose and billowy cut of the H&M vermillion blouse was balanced out with the fitted Mango white pants and yes, those white pointed heels! It is a wardrobe essential isn’t it!

In our very hot and humid climate, it is always important to stay hydrated although my choice of beverage for this picture is not the best drink to hydrate, it undoubtedly quenches thirsts! But go easy on it and always reach for that bottle of drinking water or brewed tea, unless you really fancy that 7 teaspoons of sugar in your soft drink.

Around SG | Alive Museum

IMG_5056

 Your adventure starts here!

Fancy being carried in the arms of Superman, chased by The Hulk in mid air?

Or challenging yourself to some street jam or white water rafting?

How about some girly ballet pirouettes or flying on the back of a hummingbird?

Immerse in photosnapping fun and best of all, done in cool comfort within the 10,000 square feet premise of Korea’s first and original 3D entertainment attraction, Alive Musuem, Singapore.

There are more than 80 masterpieces with a handful that is exclusively designed for Singapore.

IMG_5054

Below are some quick tips for you to enjoy your visit at the Alive Museum.

TIPS TO HAVE THE MOST FUN

IMG_5050

1. Take some time to look at the suggestions on the wall so that you can experiment and explore different angles for better picture.

2. Stand at the recommended photo point (like that of the first image of this post) for the best images as the artwork, lighting and angles are usually at the optimum there.

IMG_5065

3. Be prepared to jump, crawl or lie on the floor and everything else to  complement the artwork.

IMG_5067

4. Dress for the occassion. There are some artwork that requires some contortion and climbing around, so make sure you aren’t wearing that bodycon dress and stiletto heels. I was wearing a midi skirt which gave me lots of movement yet providing enough coverage and slip on heels which I took off for some pictures for a more realistic look.

IMG_5085

5. Pose like there is no one watching. Honestly, there will be someone nearby waiting for you to have your picture taken so that they can take their turn. But don’t let that pressure you into having the same expression for every picture.

IMG_5113

6. Be prepared and discuss with your companion how to pose and how to get the picture taken while waiting in line to take at an artwork. This helps you take more and better pictures without holding up the queue too much.

IMG_5137

7. Go off peak if you want to make the most of the trip. If you can, go on weekdays. I was there on a weekday evening and spent 2.5hours there. There were a couple of groups and we had to wait around here and there for a couple of minutes before it was our turn to take. Assuming you went on a weekend afternoon, you might just end up spending more time waiting than taking pictures.

8. Almost all the artwork worked best with one person in the image. So going in at least a pair would mean you could take turns to snap. I brought my tripod but did not need to use it even at the artwork where both of us were in the picture as we got the help of one of the visitors there to snap our picture.

9. Last but not least, SMILE and ENJOY yourself and your company cos’ really that is all that really matters.

August is here!

It is amazing how 7 months of 2014 flew past.

As we step into August, we not only look forward to the holiday and amazing showcase of fireworks, it is also a time to look back and appreciate the growth of our nation, the prosperity and safety that we have been enjoying for decades and the hard work that each one of us Singaporeans has contributed to the economy and its growth.

DSC_7043

The national colours of Singapore is red and white, which are derived from the colours of the National Flag. The red symbolising universal brotherhood and equaltiy of man, while white symbolises pervading and everlasting purity and value. The crescent moon representing a young nation on the ascendant while the five stars stand for Singapore’s ideals of democracy, peace, progress, justice and equality.

DSC_7155

The leaders of Singapore have indeed all the ideals of the Nation kept close to their hearts as these ideals can be felt and experienced by all in the Nation.

DSC_7135

Since 2011,  I have been sharing my outfits in national colours and this year is no different. ;) You can see my previous posts here.

DSC_7081

I wore my red and white checks corset top which looked perfect with picnic basket in hand and a mat in the same checks to rest on. Actually, it has been such a long time since I went on a picnic.

The tight corset look was balanced out with a flowy Mango white pleated skirt together with the comfy Salvatore Ferragamo red jelly flats.

DSC_7085

DSC_7090

  I can on one hand say that I was relaxing on the grass, enjoying the sun and the occasional breeze on my face. But I now that I am looking at the pictures again, I must honestly say that I look like I was going to have my underarms IPL treatment with hands raised and shades on to protect my eyes from the flashes of light. Haha… Endorsements? ;P

DSC_7093

Later in that evening, I was at Fullerton and managed to catch the fireworks of the last rehearsal for the National Day Parade.

May the country continue to progress and prosper with the contributions of the citizen. Onward Singapore! :)

Outfit | So Cocky x Tiong Bahru Heritage Feista 2/3

DSC_6030

In this second installment of the wall murals for the Tiong Bahru Heritage Feista, I am featuring one of the three roosters in the collection.

There are a total of three roosters and two fish murals around Tiong Bahru when the feista started. However, only one of the rooster had most of its body in tact, altough its feet has already been peeled off as you can see in the later pics.

DSC_6032

This is a rather short post as I wanted to feature this rooster for memory sake and my outfit is actually the same as that of my previous post as it was taken on the same day and they were a short walk from each other.

Outfit | Fighting Fish x Tiong Bahru Heritage Feista 1/3

cover pic

As part of the Tiong Bahru Heritage Feista 2014, 5 murals of pets that were popular pets in the good old days at Tiong Bahru were placed all around the neighbourhood.

Sadly of the 5 murals, only 3 are doing fine while the other two were either not in their full forms or are already peeling off the wall.

I have endeavored to show case the remaining 3 murals in a 3 part series of post as part of my outfit posts with these murals.

DSC_6018

Fighting fishes are popular pets as they require very little maintenance, suitable for our warm weather and they don’t need a huge aquarium to swim about in.

DSC_5999

They are however rather aggressive and have to be stored separately to prevent injury or damage to their prized fins.

DSC_6016

Fighting fishes were a part of my childhood memory as I recall dearly that my daddy would bring me to the food centre for lunch on weekends and after that we would head over to the small aquariums at the back of the food centre where there will be shelves of fighting fishes in individual bottles separated by cardboards.

And we would be sliding out the cardboard so that neighbouring fighting fishes would catch glimpses of each other and there you could see the beautiful display of the full span of the fins.

DSC_6007

DSC_5996

DSC_6002

No prizes for guessing my outfit inspiration!

I had the perfect skirt in my wardrobe to mimic the flare of the fins of the fighting fishes when they were trying to displaying intimidation tactics.

DSC_6012

I could have gone overboard with the whole outfit looking exactly like those fishes on the wall but that would be way odd and the colours just don’t complement my skin tone too well. So I paired it with a simple cream texture top to let the bottom part of my outfit stand out.

Outfit | Football Fever

DSC_6111
Everyone is talking about the World Cup. Guys who has been waiting for this since 4 years ago to ladies who are pretty much clueless of the game know a thing or two about news in this World Cup. Its influence so powerful that it even boosts sales of sporting goods apparel.

I have not been spared from this viral sports fever.  Beebops talks and breathes football every morning providing me a round up of the games in the morning over coffee. The influence it had on me however turned out to inspiring me to put together an outfit that is football inspired, exuding a touch of sports luxe.

DSC_6085

DSC_6065

DSC_6096

The inspiration of the outfit was the uniform of referees which is usually vertical black and white stripes, which was a H&M skirt that had from a couple of seasons ago. Paired with a H&M mesh cropped top with cut in details for the athletic look, I look almost ready for a 90 mins game in the pitch.

DSC_6126

DSC_6087

The Mango White Heels polished the outfit in a strong and sharp manner. And topping off the outfit with a black sequin cap for that bling in sports luxe.

Everyone should own a pair of black pointed heels AND a pair of white pointed heels as they are so versatile and really adds such an impact to the outfit due to the stark look it gives.
DSC_6132

DSC_6118

I searched high and low for a pair of white heels for more than 6 months and I finally found one reasonably priced pair from Mango and best of all it was made of white leather and less than a $100.

DSC_6141

DSC_6116If you do not own any white heels, get out and hunt for your now cos you wouldn’t regard this classic pair of heels. Trust me! You’ll need it to finish off that all white outfit trend this summer. ;)

Outfit | Bamboo Blues

P1090458- main pic

Being Chinese, I have a small but growing collection of Cheong Sam cut items like dresses and tops.

This Cheong Sam top is one of my favourite design as it is in a simple colour palette of blue and white resembling that of the China vases. The bamboo & little birds looks like it has been delicately painted with brush strokes and graduation visible on close up.

IMG_4667

IMG_4665-2

The prints of the top is oriental but somehow it has a modern vibe to it and it wasn’t too difficult to mix it up with a sparkly sequin skirt in a blue and black stripes.

Since it was Chinese New Year, it was a perfect reason to wear some sparkle to jazz up the outfit.

Outfit | Citrus

P1090832-2 main image

A gloomy Saturday threatening to rain, eventually only mustering droplets not even enough to cool the heat on the floor.

Dressing up in such humidity can be a pain sometimes. If one has not lived on the 0 degrees latitude on the Earth for more than 365 days a year, one may be quick to point out how lazy dressers Singaporeans are, in their shorts and t-shirts and flip flops, and of late the thick strappy sandals of the Birkenstocks.

P1090798-2

I am guilty of letting the weather get the better of me on weekends when it comes to dressing up as comfort is of great importance since work wear on weekdays are a little more restrictive and structured in shape and material.

However wearing that shorts and tee doesn’t immediately throw the wearer into a the category of a sloppy dresser.

Footwear, in this case, can be the saviour to elevate your fashion standings or the devil to push you into hell fires of fashion.

P1090826-2

A pair of sneakers or ballet flat completes the outfit immaculately.

Sprinkle that footwear with some shine, especially when it is a combination of gold and silver sparkles, gives the outfit the finishing touches.

P1090804-2

Comfort will never be a question with these sneakers.

P1090794-2

These sneakers are inspired by Miu Miu Fall 2011 collection with its colour and studs. I didn’t have to break the bank for this pair of Zalora sneakers as they were retailing for less than $30.

Cool down from the warm summer heat with winter white outfits.

Can we ever get enough of an all white outfit? I can’t for sure and I can foresee  many more all white outfits to come as the days get warmer!

The lace skirt that I am wearing reminds me of flowers covered in snow.  All ready to burst into colours of blooms.

This is not my first lace skirt in my collection, definitely not my last, but this one is a little different with its asymmetrical hemline details.
