OSF Clothes Buffet

Thank you all for coming down for the clothes buffet! I hope many of you enjoyed it! I mentioned you can fit about 4 items in the envelope and to my surprise, many people managed to fit at least 6?! I was so shocked but also very happy for them!! The best for the day was a girl who managed to get 9 items for $30! POWER RIGHT?! Hehe.

Surprisingly, i still have some more balance stocks! So i'll probably organize a sale, clearing each piece at $3-5? Unsure when exactly though, but do keep checking back k? :D Here're some pictures taken on Saturday!

  Love my neck piece from Topshop!
Was surprised to see this gold dress lying around after the buffet, WHY NOBODY WANT?! I LOVE IT! Haha.

detergents, surfactants, sulfates, artificial scents, colorizers, petroleum products or yucky
stuff of any kind.

Busy

Just a post letting y'all know I'm still pretty much alive! Haha. I feel terrible everytime I don't update this space after the weekend! This week was cus i spent too much time being a couch potato. Been kinda long since i did that at home! Love it!!!

Anyhow...its about time I closed the Haji Boutique for renovation since this period is pretty much "dead" at Haji Lane. The boutique looks like a complete mess ever since I moved in last year! Didnt really have a "quiet month" to close and do renovations since then. Now's a pretty good time I guess! I don't think I will do anything major though...just change the carpet, paint the walls and add some new furnitures? Will close for renovation from 1st to 7th March! Will then reopen with tons of new stocks! Yippee! I predict the upcoming week's gonna be busy and so much fun. :) this week I hope to clear as much stocks as I can before closing for renovation so do visit me at Haji Lane k? :)

Oooohhh and...I am looking forward to Saturday!!!! The OSF clothes buffet. Hehe. I will try to go down early to meet yall. We can take pictures for the blog (if y'all wanna!).

Will post outfit picx ASAP! Xoxo

I am still looking for
1) Carpet companies
2) Painters (or whoever who wants to paint the shop for me? good money ok! but it's a guy's job and hard work!)

If you have contacts of the above you'd like to recommend, do leave the company name + contact number in the comment box below! I've been googling but it's quite hard to find! Most of them quote me such crazy prices over the phone. :(

Free My Eyes

That day I was talking to a friend and she told me excessive contact-lens wearing can cause your eyelids to droop! So I got a bit scared and have been trying to not wear it on days I don't see much people. After all, I've a perfect eye sight, I only wear it to look pretty. Lol. So yeah, that explains the below without my contact lens. Need to get used to it! I feel awfully weird with small pupils! Yknw when I was younger, my friends always tell me I look like I'm in shock if I don't smile. Cus my pupils are a lil too small for my eyes. Hahaha. O.O but I really think the size of my eyes decreased or something....doesn't seem to be the case in the following picx.

Noise Singapore 2012!

 If you haven't already know, Noise Singapore is holding their festival showcase at Ion Orchard, Basement 4! From 16 Feb to 4 March! 

Noise Singapore is an initiative of the National Arts Council, and dedicates to making noise (pun intended!) about the creative talent of young people aged 35 and below! Through numerous platforms to express, develop and showcase their creativity, Noise Singapore hopes to encourage young people in Singapore to actively participate and nurture their relationship with the arts, as well as get them spotted for their budding abilities! 

Broadly classified under the genres of Art & Design and Music & Photography, the Noise community will learn from top professionals, interact with like-minded youths and share their original creations with the world. 

Noise Singapore platforms include concerts at venues like the Esplanade, that feature young musicians hungry for performing experience and exposure, exhibitions of varied scale that showcase the original artistic creations of young people, an online gallery, mentoring programs that link aspiring artists with top professionals in the industry, as well as workshops, talks and activities that focus on providing a fun experience of participating in the arts. 

 

So look at what I have got tonight at Noise Singapore Festival Showcase last evening! Be prepared to feast your eyes! 

Noise Singapore Festival Showcase is happening now at Ion Orchard, Basement 4! (Right outside Muji)

The first set of art pieces that greeted me was by these artists (as seen in the picture below!) Showcasing the World's Smallest Sushi! My favorite cuisine :D 



And look how they displayed the sushis so nicely! If you had bothered reading the measurements, the sushis are actually no longer than 1cm each! It's actually made out of a rice grain, a tiny fish, shrimp and egg roes! Greedy me actually asked the boyfee how it would feel like eating them! Cause they're so small, you may not even need to chew! Nom nom! 


This was the crowd when I arrived last night around 7pm! Filled with all the art enthusiasts, couples, individuals, friends and even families! Noise Singapore was kind enough to provide catered food to the guests!  

Scroll down to see more of the pics I thought were interesting and inspiring!



The panels glass filled with Open Categories artists' works! 



Credits to the artist, Jayden Tan!  

 This reminds me of "Dorothy", I have no idea why! But look at those strokes, created so finely for the hair, yarns and shrooms! It's new found respect for all these artists out there! We have seen your hardwork! :'D

Portraits painted of the culture at Chinatown Singapore! Of homeless and lonely elderlies at Kreta Ayer Square. My heart goes out to them, even though I can't speak proper Chinese. Nor do I even know them myself! 

This guy in the picture below is the artist of the portrait above his head apparently. Overheard him talking about his artwork so proudly to his friends while taking the shot! Hahaha   

Vintage portraits seen on the glass panels! Love them! Was hoping to see Coca Cola's calendar girls actually! I'd be super impressed if there was any!  

I'm kinda intrigued by this set of art pieces done by Elizabeth Sutrisna, on "Once Upon A Day"! 



















































More art pieces hung on the glass panels! 




 Donna, Collette and Silas looking into the shelves at the merchandizes!


 Congratulations to Noise Singapore Prize Winner 1: Daniel Yu in Art & Design!
And here are some of his artworks! 








































The robot says "Hero Lai Liao" hahaha!



















And congratulations to Noise Singapore Prize Winner 2: Jaime Wong in Music! 

Spotted a hand-sewn chameleon too!
Some handmade accessories were spotted as well! They're all for sale, so go down and show your support this weekend! 







































And here's a photo of Collette smiling for the camera! :D  






































Open art booklets displayed on one of their podiums! Go flip them when you're there, the designs are interesting and cool! All hand drawn by markers and pens (all sizes)!   




And here's me introducing the "Board of Smiles"! Put together by various awesome humans! 

Step 1 - Look around and pick a smile you like 
Step 2 - Then take a post-it and leave a smile or a message in return! 

So interesting and interactive! Immediately, I picked a sticky note and left a note behind. See if you are lucky enough to pick it out!



Here's the smile Collette picked! 

Nothing puts a smile faster than food! AGREE!!!!! 

One of the post-it I saw pasted on the Board of Smiles!



Create and design your own tote bag! Simply grab a Muji My Bag from this counter, and express your individuality on it! Start painting, pasting, coloring and designing! They provide different sets of stamps, (lightning bolts, alphabets etc), as well as markers and crayons! You can also choose to put up your completed My Bag on the wall for the world to see or bring it home as a reminder of Noise Singapore!
