[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!

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)

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!

46th National Day

Happy National Day!

Hope everyone is enjoying this public holiday. This year’s national day will be spent with Beebops and his family over dinner and watching the live telecast of the parade and catching glimpses of the fireworks from his backyard.

And don’t forget to say your pledge tonight at 8.10pm for the pledge moment. The SCDF will be sounding the Public Warning System for 20 seconds to inform and prepare all for the pledge moment. 🙂

It seems like ages since I last posted my outfit of the day. So here it is, my work attire yesterday.

NDP preview photos


So grateful to my brother who managed to get me tickets for NDP preview.

Been three years since me and beebops went to the parade. And it’s my first time going to the Marina Floating platform. So i was hyped up and i went to paint my nails!


We decided to take a train to City Hall instead of drive cos we reckon that traffic would be such a pain in the ass as a normal day it is already so bad more over when it’s the parade weekend.

Our NDP get up!

Security is really tight where they will scan bags in the xray machine which are used at the airports…. but luckily they did not confiscate my water bottle….

clear roads means bad traffic in surrounding areas…


throngs of people everywhere….

weather was extremely hot and humid with the sun shining mercilessly…

Straight ahead into the blue sector.

picture frenzy while waiting for the parade to start!

Blinking lights design on the cap

Race boats making the design of 08 on the water.

Due to time constraints and a very slow and lousy computer, that was the photos that i could edit over the weekend.

Didn’t really manage to do much nor rest as much as thought i could cos in the end i was out with beebops and mother bops to see the interior designer for his renovation of his home and room. I love designing rooms and looking around for furnishing! but that is if i dont have to fork out a single cent and just offer advices.

the interior designer suggested unnecessary furnishing like a very elaborate study table with bi-fold doors so that i can hide the table when not in use. for those who don’t know what are bi-fold doors, they are actually the same mechanism that the new HDB toilets use, which also happen to spoil very easily… the table costs $2k ++. Seow lor… totally redundant cos beebops does not need such tables as all he does is just use the lappie and also he will never ever close the bifold doors.. haha…

The designer also suggested an L-shaped wardrobe which i hate cos there is wastage of space for most L-shaped wardrobe. Hmmm it sounds as though it’s like gonna be my room also right? But, nah, i’m just more concerned about the practicality of things cos afterall i am a very pratical person when it comes to furnishing.. the designer absolutely did not do any furniture needs analysis on beebops when it comes to recommending the furnishing for his room! *tsk tsk*
