Saw some of the prettiest decorations and Chinese themed art sold here. Couldn’t help admiring the antique looking horse and the blue ox.
Thought I should put up my Christmas photos before it’s too late and I don’t feel Chrismassy anymore. The Christmas peacock angel was my favourite. Isn’t her head piece just fabulous? Catch a glimpse of her just outside Tangs.
Because coffee or tea and cupcakes, make a day even better. Wrote about it here.
Just read about this on my iphone through the Straits Times. Finally. Have been waiting for ages and since then lost my craving for donuts. Still need to wait till mid October though. The last time I had Krispy Kreme … Continue reading
Well, I guess it’s not that new, but I only recently checked it out. At first sight it looked much more pleasant but I quite miss the cheap local food options. We used to come here for Glory Mee Siam … Continue reading
Just a little post about how Singapore is in constant flux. Prompted by the discovery of The Med the other day. Although it’s probably been here for ages and I’m living under a rock as usual.
B is a car person, me not so much. Sometimes he talks to me about cars and I drift away. I don’t even like driving so I’m glad he likes it. He does complain about the COE though and commented … Continue reading
There was this changing light that provided entertainment as you’re stuck at the traffic junction. The scene is constantly changing and nothing stays still in Singapore. It’s hard to even stop a while and it seems like if you don’t … Continue reading
From this angle you can see how steep and high the Orchard Central escalator is. Goes up 3 levels. Seems like they are trying to call the place OC. But OC makes me think of that show about teenagers in … Continue reading
Not only is the ION structure gorgeous, I also adore the art installations that motorists can see from the road, because they are so huge. Just discovered that they are part of a series called Art Beyond Limits and will … Continue reading
The area around Orchard Road true to it’s name is quite an orchard. I would love to see town (our term since teenhood, for the shopping district) become more of a green oasis just like New York’s Central Park. I … Continue reading
The Haze is back and I feel it in my throat. You can smell the smoke as well. If you suffer from respiratory disorders it’s best to stay home. The PSI reading has gone from good to moderate and you … Continue reading
I am purely distracting myself right now. Posting some photos I took at ION and Wheelock Place and going to write some words that seem a bit frivolous to me after what I went through this morning. I find writing … Continue reading
Unbelievable! This is one of my favourite malls too. There has been heavy rain before, but this mall has never flooded. Pretty shocking footage where it looks like it’s raining inside the mall. [youtube]nBk_zXvVuXo[/youtube] [youtube]QqDEyQdytmc[/youtube] I know it’s been raining … Continue reading
It’s always a human crush especially since it’s the school holidays and the weekend, plus the thing they call the Great Singapore Sale.
It just dawned on me that I have blogged a ton about Chinese New Year 2011 – The Year of the Rabbit. Thought I’d better be a bit organized since February is already here. Here are all my Singapore CNY … Continue reading
I met my dear friend today and had such a good time just chatting. We both used to refer to Orchard Road as Town, and we used to come here to watch movies or have lovely meals after classes were … Continue reading
It always feels a bit sad when Christmas ends. It just seems like it didn’t last for long enough. Saw these amazing ones at Marche at 313 Somerset and also some pretty blue ones at Orchard Central. Loved how the … Continue reading
Inside Ngee Ann City to escape the heat.
