I <3 Architecture | SINGAPORE

Hey guys, how are you all doing!? I can’t believe I’m writing my very first 2015 post!

Here it’s actually early in the morning, so… happy breakfast!

Singapore breakfast

I know that it was in November 2014 that I was in Singapore, which is quite a long time back since it’s… last year! But there is something incredible about Singapore that I fell in love with and that I had meant to share here for everyone’s visual pleasure for a while now, but I guess I had been too lazy until now.

All right, so the purpose of this blog post is simply me sharing Singapore in its architectural beauty. Colonization and new technologies both often do produce many artistic wonders… and here is a photo gallery compilation of some of which I encountered during my vacation in Singapore.

Enjoy!

Bookshopping In Singapore!!!

Yes you read the title right! I recently went to Singapore  with my friend Sandra… for 8 consecutive days!

And there is only one word to describe our trip:

A.W.E.S.O.M.E.

Anyway, this time, I tried something new in terms of travelling activities and as you’ve obviously guessed from the title, one day we decided to go bookshopping! I don’t know if there is a specific legit word for it, but basically we googled about bookstores in Singapore and spent a whole day visiting them and buying books! And to our convenience, most of the interesting ones were found to be based in a single particular area: Tiong Bahru.

Sincerely, this place is definitely meant for book lovers and artists! It’s a small quiet area, so cosy!

Proof: we went there twice. Well that was because I became crazy…

Anyway, here’s the whole story… of our bookshopping adventure!!!

The first bookshop we went to was Books Actually, one of the most famous and beloved stores in Singapore.

The artwork of the store is just so beautiful! Bookworms be prepared to drool!

My Dream of Makeup Courses

Well it’s already Sunday and tomorrow, after 3 long weeks of holidays, I’m going back to school. 😦 Bye bye relax, Hello stress!

I’m doing my O-levels this year and I hate it. I hate the pressure, the working-so-hard atmosphere! It tires me; and I’m tired of friends that think I’m the best and when I’m not, they’re like they’re shocked as if I’m not human, like them. This year is the most horrible, stressful one since I entered secondary school five years earlier – wow seems long!

And what frustrates me more? On the 22, 23 August, an advanced makeup course is being organised by Pastel Cosmetics in my country and I so wanted to go! But it’s during school days. I hope they organise the course again later. You know because in my country we’re not very… um creative. Singing, dancing, acting, makeup and other arts are not taken into consideration here; we’re more like academic hardworkers here. Therefore I’m not even sure the course will be re-introduced… It was my only chance to at least have some professional help in what I’m doing now in my makeup blog! That’s why I’m eager to graduate and go to university abroad, like Singapore or even in Europe – I live in Mauritius, google it if you haven’t any clue where it’s found.

pastel cosmetics makeup courses in mauritius

Rs 5000 = about $ 178

The price is affordable I’d say! Even my father agreed but unfortunately it’s during school so… that’s too bad! =(

As I’m going back to school I won’t be able to post much, but still subscribe! You can never know… 😉 a writer’s inspiration is always spontaneous and unpredictable!
