Feb/Mar Favourites & Little Life Updates

And just like that – it’s been six months since I last updated this beloved blog. And that just simply will not do! Despite always receiving oodles of support from my first-name-basis friends, this creative project has not received much readership/traffic in a little while.…

Feeling Alive at 25! Part 2

Read Part 1 here ✨ I have an enthusiastic but unskilled green thumb. I’ve invested in seeds, pots, and various plants but none seem to thrive under my care. My office plant, Steve, currently has mildew from over watering loving. I am half Singaporean and a…

Feeling Alive at 25! Part 1

Hello! It’s me and I’m a quarter of a century! I got this idea from my friend Rachel, to share some facts about myself at this point in time. Please excuse the indulgent nature of this post, but hopefully you find out something interesting in…

☆ May-June Favourites ☆

EAT In true Japanese fashion, Chaco Bar is hole-in-the-wall tiny but massive on tasty dishes and yakitori (skewered meat & veg cooked over charcoal). Since stumbling upon it, it’s quickly made my list of favourites. The grilled rice balls with chashew are a comforting order…

☆ April Favourites ☆

These are a few of my (April) favourite things ♬ READ Lincoln In The Bardo by George Saunders – As a non-fiction fan, this book (a fictitious imagining of Abraham Lincoln’s time in the graveyard with his deceased 10 year old son Willie) would not have…

This Podcast Life

In the manner that most people keep up with television shows, I keep up with podcasts. How I Got Into Podcasts At the end of 2013, deeply starved for entertainment, I clicked on the ‘Podcast’ app that comes pre-installed on all iPhones with the expectation that…

An Afternoon with Amelie (11 months)

My goddaughter, Amelie, is now just over one year old, and can walk and dance (her favourite song is Say Geronimo)! I shot her at 11 months back in November, when she was just starting to stand up by herself! A big thank you to Mother Father PR…

Craving Gelato, Improvising Deliciousness

A few months ago, I let my love of gelato come between myself and my better judgement. A certain car company Uber held a promotion for their app by giving away free gelato Messina. Like I am sure most people do, I approach promotions with a healthy sense of skepticism, and had…

Tummy Time with Amelie (feat. Kip & Co)

Born on Christmas day, my goddaughter, Amelie, is now just over seven months old! She has grown so quickly, already lifting her head up with ease at the Tummy Time stage. I shot Amelie just a few days after she was born (see here) and it is…

14/4/2013

On my way wandering through the city executing a Situationist Dérive. It is a practice involving drifting through the streets, lanes, staircases, and whatever other locations you may end up in (including the casino, the fish markets, and private suburbs) until all forms of preoccupations melt…

Ode to Dancing Shoes and Dancing Songs IV

H&M wedges | 16th January 2010 – 9th March 2012 D.A.N.C.E. – Justice When I saw these shoes at H&M on Hollywood Boulevard, I immediately knew that they were mine. They were colourful, bold and striped – I simply could not wait to wear them with some…

My Birthday

Two years ago, for my birthday, I received my first digital SLR. I knew next to nothing about photography. F stops and shutter speed simply did not exist in my vocabulary. The internet was not yet synonymous with life itself. Obsession with facade was not…

The joys of music

The joy of… sound checks – hearing the voices without seeing the faces only makes for more excitement The joy of… set lists and trying frantically to remember each song individually during the ride home The joy of… Nic and Dom’s hugs after each performance…

Around the World 50 years Ago

I met a very lovely lady today. 50 years ago, when Judy was 19, she traveled around the world – which for her time (and seriously even today) was quite cool. She was kind enough to show me the photos from her travels – from…
