The rain got me a little nervous just now but fortunately it was mere passing showers. I’m headed for the tulips exhibition at the Gardens by the Bay right now, and crossing my fingers that it doesn’t rain on me. The weather has been very unpredictable in recent weeks.
A few months back, I went to Group Therapy Coffee for after-dinner desserts with two friends, but I didn’t take my best pictures there. I’m hoping today’s shooting endeavours will turn out better!
A walk in the Kampong Glam area, more specifically Haji Lane and Arab Street (shopping stretches), and Kandahar Street (for brunch – Maison Ikkoku), one of my favourite places to go in Singapore.

Christmas, the perfect excuse to indulge in more cake and coffee, gifts, and the sweet embrace of friends and loved ones. Merry Christmas everyone!
The customary chinese wedding lunch/ dinner is – briefly put – an occasion where the couple invites friends and relatives to a meal, typically at a restaurant or hotel, in celebration of their marriage.
I was somewhat worried about having to shoot under extremely poor light conditions but the ISO 800 film in my camera helped to allay some of the anxiety.
The wedding “gatecrash” is mandatory in many Chinese weddings, during which the bridesmaids put the groom and his groomsmen through a series of games and haggle for red packets (i.e. money) before the groom is allowed to receive – and kiss – the bride. The gatecrash is meant to be a fun thing, heightening the atmosphere of the room with peels of laughter while giving the groom a chance to show his bride how much he is willing to sacrifice for her.
This is my third time being a bridesmaid and each experience is different. This time, the boys were made to consume bitter and sour food, forced into complex yoga poses etc – you get the idea – although I must say these were easy-peasy games compared to what I’ve seen before!
