I like this picture. Saw this on (Pinterest). It makes me feel liberated for some strange reason.

Reading: Tempting Fate by Jane Green. I finished Best in me by Nicholas Sparks and it was a good albeit emotional read.

Listening: Set Fire to the Rain by Adele

Planning: An exercise and "Eating Cleaner" regime. I am thinking Body combat on one week, Pilates on another. Fruits and lots of veg and possibly one supplement thrown into the equation.

Busy with: Outreach events at work as Christmas is coming. Of course, wedding planning. (:

Thinking: Materializing dreams in 2014.

Loving: My new book- Paper to Petals. I'm so psyched and I can't wait to start creating some blooms out of crepe paper!

Inspired by: Pinterest. I have been following a lot more boards, a lot more creative people and I am so inspired. Mind-blown in a good way!

Savouring: The amount of annual leave and time offs for Dec. These breaks have been doing me a whole lot of good but the breaks can also be a tad bit dangerous as my mind goes wandering of lofty dreams & possibilities when the house comes along. Chants *art studio art studio* heh.

Drury Lane Cafe | Cafe-Hop & Scrap Sesh.

After our last scrap session at L'etoile café, we wanted to do it again and we were looking for a new location for novelty's sake. It had to be quiet enough and private enough to do our art and not feel like we were hogging a table for too long. Drury Lane proved to be the perfect place with its more private second floor. There were several bigger tables and we managed to snag one for ourselves.

I like the vibes of this café. Very raw and old school kind of setting- think old shop house and lots of wood. I like the fact that there is free wifi, water and pay-as-you wish muffins. That's such a cool idea!

Love the berry cooler, refreshing with real pulp! Chocolate tart's pretty decent but nothing to rave about.

Pancakes' really good stuff, soft, warm and fluffy! It comes with honey and berry compote.

This café's worth a visit! You will find many other cafes along the same stretch so you can imagine I can't quite contain my excitement. Tanjong Pagar's such a gem, I will be back!

Singapore Biennale 2013

My favourite bi-yearly affair- Singapore Biennale! Its always most exciting to see what artists around the world, in particular Asia creates. My favourite would most definitely have to be 3D installations. And I have to comment that this year's art installations are amazing! Even the not so arty farty fiancée is impressed with 2 in particular. No regrets paying a visit to the Singapore Art Museum. We have 3 other places to comb.

You just have to pay $10 and you will get yourself a guide book and admission to the museums hosting the artworks for Sg Biennale. The exhibition's till 16 Feb 2014 so there's still lots of time for you to go have a look!
