Hurray!! Singapore Day...

Chilli Crabs, Prawn Noodles, Ice Kachang... familiar mouth-watering authentic Singaporean Hawker dishes... will soon be available in Melbourne!!!

We can't tell you all how excited we are about Singapore Day '08 that will be held in Melbourne this year...

The first ever Singapore day was held in New York last year in Central Park, creating an opportunity for overseas Singaporeans to "rekindle and renew their connections" as mentioned by Deputy PM Wong Kan Seng, get the chance to mingle and meet new friends; and not forgetting to indulge in one of their favourite past time - Eating!

Fiona and I will be hanging around the food stalls that's for sure!

Tokyo Time

How cool are these watches? Especially the 2nd from the left. Well, its just a few examples of the many showy ones that the Jap's have come out with. Costing for just an approx of AUD$150, its probably quite a bargain considering its unqiue specifications and features.

Check out their site!

Happy Ticking away!

Nice and Green...

We came across Christina's shop, TheOakLeaves and thought these terrariums would make a really unique gift to ourselves... or maybe even as a X'mas gift?

Terrariums are simply a glass enclosure used for growing plants indoors, in this case Christina uses mosses and lichens. They are living things... nearly maintenance free. Its habit to thrive on neglect makes a it easy to love.

Vamp My Shoes!!!

Back during the nineties in Singapore, Mary-jane canvas shoes were the "IN-thing" for school girls... I was no exception. Just as I thought this trend was over and done with... I've found someone who has made it a comeback... but this time with a splash of colours! I cannot find words to describe how comfy and cute these shoes are... maybe "Quirky-licious" + "Awesome!"... or better described, as Singaporeans would say "damn Chio!"... (meaning Beautiful) 

iVampshoes is the baby of Creative Whiz, Jessie Cheng. What started out as an idle hobby eventually evolved to become a Cult fashion among friends... since then this Cult FaZ has begun to spread infectiously! I'm proud to admit that I'm a victim of this craze, as they bring back memories of the good ol' days. Using various materials and textiles, all of them are painstakingly illustrated with love and patience.

I'm waiting to add my 2nd pair of iVampshoes to my collection. Hope you like them too!

Sydney Fashion Week

Calling all Sydney Sider fashion freaks! The Rosemount Sydney Fashion Festival 2008is underway!! We've heard that it may be just a big thing for Sydney as it is with the Olympics in Beijing! So remember to head down if you're up for it. Brace the cold but we're pretty sure that heat will be exploding from the runways with those hot sassy models in chic outfits, so it should not be such a worry.

Dressing your wound for fashion!

The bandage dress that gives aid to your fashion is back in scene from the 8Os with greater impact!

It was uncovered in 1989 and was as much a part of the epoch as Madonna or Backstreet Boys.

It recently walked the runways of New York and made a relaunch by the label Herve Leger's new designer,
Max Azria. They are the “it” fashion garment of the season, everyone’s going for it and it’s definitely one item on my list to have!

These scabbards-like frocks which sophisticatedly wraps around the body to fit each individual perfectly has earned its popularity with celebrities and supermodels who have all gone absolutely crazy for it! They have strapped the bodies of Victoria Beckham, Rihanna, and Mariah Carey etc…

Funnily, if you think about it, the concept did come from Egypt’s historical beings: ‘mummies’!!! They were the only ones to have been wrapped around with bandage cloth and look what our fashion experts have use that cultural existence to create something like the ‘bandage dress’ to be a hip, sassy fashion item on a female’s sculpture.

Our exceptional applause goes to the creators! Extraordinary!

Oriental Love...

Jayson Brunsdon had a vision to create elegant and modern quality clothing for the sophisticated woman.

His business began small, working from a confined space at home with only $10,000; Jayson's instincts about his products have been indisputable, taking inspiration from the lives and looks of great iconic women like Audrey Hepburn and his own mother, Dorothy Brunsdon. Jayson recently launched a boutique in Singapore. His latest season encompass elegantly chic dresses with modern oriental influences that are great for both day and night. We especially love the watercolour printed silk dress...

Brunsdon's Tips for Success
1) Believe in your self.
2) Think positively. If you dwell on the bad everything will be bad.
3) Stay focused on your desired outcome & give it everything you have.
4) Keep ownership of your direction
5) Make controlling your outcome a top priority
