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.

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 | Blooms on a Bright Sunny Day

Sluggish! The weather was scorching hot and unbearable.

Sipping a glass of ice coffee in the coffee shop did not reduce the perspiration that was trickling down my back.

 photo IMG_3248_zps500ffd6b.jpg

I tried not to let the hot weather get the better of me and went out in search for some lighting for our place. And in the process picked up some other stuffs. ;p

Outfit | Sequins Squares

I wore this outfit on the second day of Chinese New Year.

I bought this skirt some time back and have not gotten the chance to wear it and finally wore it on this second day of chinese new year.

 photo Picturefrmiphone592_zpsef3e9374.jpg

The skirt is made of full sequins in small squares and was a little heavier than normal skirts and it had a slight metallic sound when I walked, a little like wearing a mesh netting around.

Since the skirt already had the details and sheen, I opted for a simple dark blue camisole top and an ethnic inspired necklace to match.

Dining | Brunch @ White Rabbit

A serene and windy drive amongst lush greenery in the Dempsey area leads us to The White Rabbit.

 photo P1030914_zps5c8d1485.jpg

 Stepping out of the car, you will be welcomed with the scent of dewy green grass and immediately I feel relaxed and just plain happy.

The White Rabbit restaurant operates in tastefully restored old chapel with high ceilings and huge stained glass windows.

We were led to our table where we spent the next 10 mins soaking up the atmosphere and appreciating the details of the place. The place was done up with a lot of the chapel’s element kept in tact and incorporating some other fixtures that made the space functional as a restaurant.

The mosaic tiles which looked original.

I ordered my usual caffeine and my usual brunch choice, Eggs Benedict.

 photo P1030923_zps4feb7f4a.jpg

And Beebops ordered the Fettucine alla Carbonara.

 photo P1030924_zpsdcbbf637.jpg

The food proved to be a little disappointing after much excitement about the location.

The Hollandaise sauce on my eggs benny was a bland and the Carbonara was a little too salty. A pity.

The bill came up to more than $70 for our brunch of Carbonara, Cappuccino & Eggs Benedict.

The back door of The White Rabbit opened to a garden area with a rustic charm.

It was a lovely brunch location and losing track of time wandering around the small garden behind The White Rabbit.

If only we had more reason to return to this untouched garden.

Brunch @ Garden Slug

Nestled in sleepy quiet corner in the east, I heard that they had an all day breakfast menu, and decided to drop by one weekend to try the food.

Photobucket

There were outdoor and indoor seats and as it was too much of a glare for me to have a meal al fresco in the afternoon sun, we opted for the air conditioned seats.

The interiors were kept very much in its original state. Old and weather beaten, with uneven walls and old mosaic tiles lining the place. Just as it is. Nothing too done up. Just simple and unpretentious.

There was an adorable door of fame with doodles of different renditions of the garden slug.

Photobucket

I was a little disappointed to know that my favourite breakfast choice, Eggs Benedict, was not on the menu. I guess it is a good thing sometimes as it leaves me with no choice but to try something random and unexpected.

Photobucket

Beebop’s big breakfast…

Photobucket

The breakfast was big as its name suggests and is bound to make you leave the place full and just feel cushy. He liked the muesli and yogurt and the whole grain wholemeal bread. Although he was not too pleased with the hashbrown being overly deep fried causing it to be hard, dry and just not too tasty.

And I ordered the Runny Salmon Scramble Up. The name is just a little odd to me… I am just wondering if it should have been Salmon Runny Scramble Up instead…

Anyway, back to my food! My brunch looks very sad and miserable against Beebops’ big breakfast, but luckily it made up for its lack of volume with loads of smoked salmon. They were extremely generous with the smoked salmon which tasted so delicious with the eggy flavours of the scrambled eggs. The salmon and eggs were enough to fill me up but I couldn’t quite resist the two slices of bread. I love eating any whole meal, whole grain, brown and grainy and very wholesome looking bread. It appeals to me cos they look so power packed with lots of nutrients! I think it is just me and my weird conclusions. ;-p

Photobucket

I was  lucky to have tried something  nice other than my usual breakfast choice! I wouldn’t mind returning for their breakfast menu and choose the Runny Salmon Runny Up again. The indoor seating is very echo-y due to bad sound insulation, so when the place started packing up with patrons, it got a little loud and made conversation just a little harder.

Dining | Carousel Buffet @ Royal Plaza on Scotts

I made reservations at Carousel on the day of Beebop’s birthday for dinner after work. Unfortunately due to work commitments, he couldn’t leave work on time. By the time he left work, it was already close to 8.30pm. We did a quick check with each other on whether we wanted to proceed with the buffet dinner or settled for something simpler and less sumptuous. And decided to continue with the dinner buffet at Carousel as the both of us were famished!

From our work place, we darted down to Royal Plaza on Scotts and it was close to 9pm. 1.5hrs before the restaurant closes! Pardon me for the lack of picture of the spread and the surroundings cos we really didn’t have much time on hand before we started to see an empty spread. So choosing my food took precedence over pictures and below are the first few items that I took. I got lazy and had dirty fingers from eating seafood and all so no more pictures.

The quality of food is quite good, from appetisers to cooked food to their desserts and pastries. Most importantly, their service was marvellous. When I made the reservations for dinner, I mentioned to the staff that I was making the reservations for a birthday dinner for my bf.  And they very kindly offered a special arrangement of cake to celebrate the occasion. So when I was seated down, the staff wasted no time to give me the “eye contact” to acknowledge me and my special arrangement. And as soon as I was left alone at the table when Beebops went to replenish his plate, two of them came over like an eagle to its prey, except in a non-threatening manner to speak to me and asked me for some information and there after gave me some instructions on how to cue the staff to bring in the cake. :)

Photobucket

I am still very impressed with their dedication and passion in their jobs.

And, yeah, I think I would want to head back there some time soon, to enjoy the food, the ambience, and all these done with lesser time constrains.

[Outfit] Singapore National Day 2012 – Just Red & White

My work place is filled with people who are so fun and enthusiastic. :)

It was planned that we would go into the office in our outfits of reds and whites and have a team lunch gathering over high raved nyonya food.

The food was delicious! I had to stop myself from taking the third serving!

Photobucket

Singapore has developed and progressed so much in these 47 years and I wish for prosperity and growth for Singapore in many more years to come!

I love Singapore for its stability, security and efficiency. Many a times we take these for granted but will come to better appreciate them when we step out of the country.

Anyway back to my outfit, I wore a crochet sweater over a red dress, which I wore last Christmas. (as below)

Photobucket

And added a red skinny belt to give the top some definition else I would look like an overaged student heading to the library.

Wearing the crochet sweater proved to be quite a challenge ,even when it made of cotton and acrylic blend & sleeves rolled up, in the humidity of Singapore’s summer.

And on National Day itself, I headed to Ikoi for dinner after watching the National Day Parade on tv. I will be posting about the dinner in the next post.

With the ridiculous rumors spreading like wild fire about the demise of Mr Lee KY, although I doubt the creditability of the rumor,  it was still certainly a relief to be able to see him attend the National Day Parade.

I was in the mood for another day of red and white!
