Look of the Day – Loving SG 9 August was Singapore’s 47th National Day, and I was inspired by the national flag’s red-and-white colours and five stars. This was also the FIRST time I had an opportunity to step onto the National Day stage at The Float @ Marina Bay. Although there were no performers on that day, the feeling of stepping on that stage was odd – I felt strangely choked with emotion. Happy birthday Singapore. Star print shirtdress – Chocoolate
Beige leather bracelet – House of Chapel Black crystal and pearl bracelet – Tresor paris White winged watch – Jeremy Scott x Swatch
Newspaper print leather shoes – John Galliano Stockings – Forever 21 (one of the most affordable, fancy & durable!)
Of all the perfect shots I took, I chose this imperfect one to use. Why? Cos’ I have a great friend monkeying in the background. That’s what friends are for – sharing the good times, the bad times, and the cam-whoring times! Memories are made of these.Lego bow tie – The Little Dröm Store (you can buy extra parts to match your own colours) The bow tie was inspired by National Day’s Loving SG Lego project. Everyone loved my bowtie! I am thinking of getting some Lego flowers to stick on the bowtie now…haha
Me kissing Furball, the Singapore Flyer’s mascot at NDP’s media event. I think the person inside must have been terrified of this crazy person, cos’ his face is actually at the mascot’s mouth. Meaning all he saw of me were my fat lips! Hahaha…
Building a LovingSG
This was the inspiration for my Lego bowtie – a Lego replica of the National Day Parade venue which took 200,000 Lego bricks, 25,000 figurines and over 500 volunteers to complete. The “Building a LovingSG” structure spans an area of 12 by 9 metres, about the size of a volleyball court.This project is especially meaning as it is a fund-raising effort for the Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund whose mission is to reach out to every child in need and provide them with the resources to do well in school – and beyond. For every $5, you get to customise 2 Lego mini figures. One of the mini figures will be placed on the replica platform and the other to be taken home as a memento. I see people have been pretty creative, some even bringing their own decorations for their figurines…
Compare the Lego replica on the left to the real deal on the right – pretty realistic huh?
Whoa – even Singapore’s national icon ‘took leave’ from spewing water at Marina Bay to go watch the National Day Parade!
Hey bro – wrong sign! This is the National Day Parade in Singapore, not Olympics in London!
Even our Samsui women were there decked in their bright red headgear and blue outfits!
These ladies contributed greatly to the early foundation of modern Singapore
And then there was hanky-panky…GASP
That is what we always wanted to do on ‘live’ TV!
Can’t get a good view? Do a human formation!
What’s a dinosaur doing at the Parade?!
Even the superheros came to watch…is that Lady Gaga I spot in the right corner?
The Stromtrooper came with his bride too
It looked so fun my handphone (I have named her Appy – cos’ it sounds like ‘happy’) decided to join in the Parade LOL
I loved this meaningful project, and hope they will bring it back next year! Maybe I will decorate my figurine with a big puffy skirt, swarovski crystals and 5-inch platforms – I will watch the Parade in style too! haha..
