[Outfit] Mixed Monochromatic Patterns

I have been wanting to experiment wearing prints on prints but it just isn’t that easy to try to match them so that I don’t end up looking like I am in a costume and all ready to keep the kids entertain in a party.
Guess the easiest way out has just got to be sticking with the safest colors in the wardrobe, BLACK and WHITE.

The first layer is a polka dots tube and  a pencil skirt with diagonal stripes texture.

It isn’t very obvious in real life but you can see it quite clearly in the picture above.

And threw on a nautical striped jacket and it doesn’t seem quite that bad after all.

At least I felt I could head to work in these.  :-p

[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!

The Singapore Flyer

Photobucket

The Singapore Flyer has become an iconic landmark along the Marina Promenade ever since it started twirling  in 2008. If I remembered correctly, it was sometime during the Chinese New Year holidays.

It has been four years since it opened its doors to tourists and locals a like and I am finally making my first trip in the Singapore Flyer in 2012.

The Singapore Flyer took about 2 and a half years to complete is the tallest Ferris wheel in the world at the point of this post ( 28 July 2012). I must have my disclaimers in place right? Since it is always so plausible that there will be another taller and bigger Ferris Wheel appearing in some parts of the world.

Passenger capsules are installed on the external circumference of the Flyer and they are fully air conditioned. There were a total of 28 capsules.

Queuing up to board the capsules.

The capusule has full glass walls which allows passengers to have a 360 degree view of the landscape and benches are available in the middle of the capsule for passengers to rest in the 30 minutes or so journey.

The capsules are rotated slowly as the main frame of the Ferris wheel makes its revolution.

We went there at about 6 plus and by the time it was on its way down the other side, it was starting to get dark and we could catch a glimpse of the illuminated city.

Photobucket

As the capsules are in some motion, albeit very slow, I did get a bit of a headache as I have motion sickness problems.

The Singapore Flyer is a good way to slowly see the city and the sea beyond the Marina Promenade area.

But some people think that the ride was a little too long and can’t wait to get out

Photobucket

But if you don’t really have the time nor the patience to sit through the 30 mins ride, you can always consider heading to the top of Marina Bay Sands to enjoy the view at your own time and target.

Diet & exercise

It has been two months since I started on an exercise routine with Jenn and the results are slowly starting to show.

But exercising is just one side of the story.

We didn’t quite scrutinize the food we have on our plates nor the drinks that we quench our thirsts with.

We both felt that we have hit a plateau in our routine and needed to start looking into the food that we eat so that we would be able to get rid of our stubborn fats!

We started on the diet and I have been sharing my daily meals on instagram.

My Internet connection should be up and running by the end of this week and I will be able to share in more details on the exercise and diet that we have adopted. 🙂

I will be going for a hike at Bukit Timah Natures Reserve & a BBQ dinner tomorrow.
Looking forward to the weekend. Hope you have fun too!!

See ya again real soon!

[Outfit] To the Singapore Flyer

I was heading to the Singapore Flyer in the evening and decided to drop by our place first to check out the renovation progress.

Beebops bought along a pack of biscuits which was a very popular snack in the 80’s . In fact this snack brings about fond memories when my granny would bring me out to the playground once a week and on our way back home, we would pass by a small shop, also known locally as a mama shop, at the void deck. And my granny would get this snack for me as she knows that it is my favourite biscuit.

Have you tried this snack before? Was this also one of your favourite childhood snack?

Thanks for dropping by! I would update my visit to the Singapore flyer in a separate post.

Rise @ Marina Bay Sands

Headed over to Marina Bay Sands (MBS) for buffet lunch at Rise Restaurant.

Located on the first floor in an open space just next to the main lobby of MBS, one should not have much problems trying to locate this restuarant.

The buffet has a good variety of desserts, sashimi, cold cuts, salads, cheese, bread, seafood, smoked meat.

The cooked food section also had a variety of Chinese, Indian, Italian & Western dishes.

Photobucket

The selection is really good in my opinion but the salmon sashimi is not as fresh as I would have expected though the other sashimi were alright.

This is the first buffet that I have been to that has the largest variety of cold cuts and smoked meat. There was Smoked Tuna, salmon and yellowfin & cold cuts like salami, parma ham and some other cuts of duck and beef which I don’t know their names.

Photobucket

Coffee or tea is included in the buffet. They serve TWG tea at the restaurant but they do not have the full range of selections, just the more basic choices like Earl Grey, Chamomile & English Breakfast.

This is one half of the salad station.

Lunch at $48++

It is a little steep but taking into consideration the huge variety and the quality of food, it is worth the visit. I will usually stay clear from the cooked food section as the taste of the food is largely disappointing, however after my brother told me how nice the diced beef was, I decided to give it a try along with the other food in the section. And I kept going back! Surprisingly the food are all cooked with the proper flavours and textures.

However for $68++ for dinner, I wouldn’t be able to comment if it is still worth the visit.

Busy as a Bee

I feel so apologetic that I have not updated my blog for close to a month.

Partly due to the fact that I have been busy trying to pack my stuffs to the move to my new place.

And due to my move over, I no longer have Internet access until end of July!

I have so much to update! About my trips and outfits although I haven’t gotten into the mood of taking picture at the new place.

Anyway, here are some snippets of my days in June till now.

See you soon!
