Summer is coming

Know the famous Games of Throne phrase? “Winter is coming.” Well sorry Starks, Summer is coming, or has officially arrived.

It’s Summer all year round in Singapore so what the heck! I do wish we have four seasons. When I was living overseas for four years, it was the best as I got to experience spring, summer, autumn and winter. The joy of experiencing the change of seasons, as a child, was full of wonderment. Seeing the leaves change to red and falling all around in our garden, or seeing snow on a Christmas morning and being filled with awe.

Those were the times….

Not to mention each season you get an excuse to buy new wears. Such a pity at that age, I was more interested in playing soccer with the boys than what I was wearing. Yup I was 100% a tomboy. Even now, I am considered more boyish than my group of girlfriends.

So for those who are celebrating the welcome of summer, it’s time to stock up on tank tops and shorts. And don’t forget lots and lots of swimsuits 🙂

Freedom is here…

Here’s something to share with you guys! Usually before a paper, I tend to be so nervous that I can’t eat much and my stomach will end up growling mid-paper. Not a pleasant sight or sound, I might add. There was one time, my stomach growled so loudly that the teacher stared at me and a fellow classmate snickered. Yup, maximum embarrassment!

This time’s mid-sem paper was no different. I couldn’t eat much before I headed for school to take the paper. But afterwards, I was famished! I felt I could eat bowls and bowls of pasta, which I did not of course! Just one…

Stateland Cafe is the perfect place for some comfort food and that’s where I went after my paper.

I’ve always wanted to head back there after my last visit. The end of mid-sem paper was the perfect opportunity to go and celebrate the end of my test and the start of my holiday.

After that was to catch a movie with my love and my mum (aka the third wheeler). 

For now I’m just gonna make full use of my mid-sem break to catch up on lots of sleep.

Sun on my face, wind in my hair

‘I want to lay down, let the sun hit my face and forget about absolutely everything.’

The weather has been so gloomy lately, with heavy showers for days. So it was a blessing when the sun was out the day we went to Botanic Gardens.

To be able to walk around and explore different gardens like the Orchid Garden, within Botanic Gardens.

I wished Singapore had more gardens like this. Yes, it’s a garden city. But I’ve come to realise it’s too cosmopolitan.

So are you, dear readers, a cosmopolitan girl or a suburban girl?

I like to have the best of both worlds.

Children Biennale

There’s an inside joke between Shah and I. Previously, I did not know how to pronounce Biennale and I went around pronouncing it as “Bi-an-nale”, until one lady corrected me. It cracked us all up like crazy!

So since we went to the Biennale a few months back at the Singapore Arts Museum, I thought to give the Children Biennale, which is held at the National Gallery, a try.

Try to go on a weekday, as the weekends are packed, and I mean really packed(!), with families and tourists.

Aside from the long queues, I have to say we had an amazing and relaxing there spent at the exhibitions. My fave would definitely have to be Yayoi’s Kusama’s The Obliteration Room, which is basically a plain white room, filled with thousands of colourful stickers.

Can I just say, my inner child was screaming! I just wanted to go around the room and stick even more of these stickers, which you can do so by the way. You can purchase a handbook for the exhibitions at $5, and inside will contain different items for each exhibition. Or if you want to save money, just go to the entrance of the exhibition and ask the person-in-charge for stickers for Yayoi’s Kusama’s exhibition.

So what are you guys waiting for? Find a day to visit the Children Biennale! You don’t have to be a child to enjoy the beauties and creativeness of these exhibitions.

Parents, take opportunity of the June holidays to bring your children there.

I guarantee you will have an amazing time, just like I did!

Adventure at the National Museum

It wouldn’t be called an adventure without a few glitches here and there. I won’t talk about them here, but we will definitely not be forgetting them.

Heading to the National Museum with this bunch makes it even more fun! Although we had to get our assignment done quickly, it was never boring…

I wished we had more time that day to explore, but nope we had to head back to school. Reality sets in….

Here’s to more adventures with you guys!

Romantic at heart

I can’t deny this but I’m definitely someone who likes to be more romanced. I mean I don’t know bouquets of flowers, just the small gestures like coming to my place to surprise me or when my man looks at me and say, ‘you know you’re beautiful right?’

 The Jet Set Diaries dress from Revolve totally represents the romantic me. Not only that, it makes me feel like a princess.

Every girl needs to invest in that one dress that makes them feel like royalty. Head to Revolve to take a look at the many brands provided. Revolve is every shopaholic’s heaven. There are just too many amazing brands that it’ll take you days to look at every outfit. Not kidding.
