A speedy hello from one of my favourite cities in the world! Here again and decked out in mustard tones to complement the yellow cab frenzy around New York. The weather has been comfortable, and when you’re jet lagged and already heading out around 7AM every day, the lighting works in your favour.


Our first stop was Top of the Rock that I’ve been to many times, both in the early mornings and during sunset, and the view still overwhelms me! There is something special about New York that makes you believe the sky is the limit. See you on Instagram!

After connecting the dots at Yayoi Kusama’s exhibition in Tokyo, I was naturally obsessed with her dazzling work of pumpkins, dots and mirrored rooms. They don’t actually permit photo-taking in Tokyo’s version of the Infinity Mirrored Room, so you can just imagine the new exhibition at the National Gallery Singapore starting this Friday (June 9) will be a huge hit with the Instagram generation. And I’m not going to lie, I loved every bit of it.

With All My Love for the Tulips, I Pray Forever (2013)
If it’s not already obvious that I coordinated my outfit with the various mesmerising rooms and works, well I did. I even got my boyfriend to wear white so we could match for the mirrored room ‘gram. Worth it!

Infinity Mirrored Room: Gleaming Lights of the Souls (2008)
This is my favourite room, of course. After my failed attempt at sneaking a photo in Tokyo’s museum, I’m so glad I could recreate the memory here in Singapore with my favourite person, in my favourite room, in one of my favourite outfits. 

 

 

The Spirits of the Pumpkins Descended into the Heavens (2017)
I was invited for the media preview but I assure you that this is no ad, and that you really have to see the rooms in person. It is a fantastic experience and you get to discover Kusama’s creative vision from the 1950s to the present, including works never shown before (from private collections).

Narcissus Garden (2017)
Tips: Go early. Go on a weekday. Be patient. Some of the rooms are timed so you can get a great photo, so I’d say the queues are worth it anyway. Have fun and don’t forget to say hi on Instagram!

They say some eat to live, and others live to eat, but you have to agree it’s almost always a mixture of both. Whatever it is, life is best enjoyed with good food, and what better way to top that off than with someone who shares the same cravings as you?
What my partner and I find ourselves doing every weekend is trying out new local cafés and restaurants, and though there are some we tend to go back to, the weekends are strictly reserved for a fresh palate. That said, we enjoy traveling too, mainly for the food and the sights. And in every city we visit, we make the effort to book in advance so the day is started off with a solid brunch and closed with a hearty meal.

You have to admit, it’s always a promising meal that we all look forward to after a long day. Take my partner and I for example, we constantly have full schedules of meetings and new deadlines throughout the week, so we tend to plan dates in advance. This way, we also get to tick off our checklist of restaurants, cafés and bars that we want to visit, so it’s a win-win. We find this really helps us tide through the workday knowing that we get to spend time with each other over an enjoyable meal after. And if the food wasn’t that great, hey, at least now we know to steer clear.
On the recurring theme of food, both of us actually met at a friend’s wedding lunch and hit it off straight away. Surely food makes the world go ‘round, right?

That said, of course I know how hard it is finding the perfect person to vibe with, and I hear this all the time from both guy and girl friends who are even busier than I am. Think doctors, investment bankers or airline crew with a full schedule from dawn to dusk, and for those who are already used to working overtime or have spontaneous shifts, I think you get my drift.
So here’s something to mull over, no matter how independent or busy you may be, you still have to eat. And if you’re into meeting up with others over a genuine meal and conversation, Bite lets you do just that. You can even post your own broadcast stating where, when, and what you’d like to eat, then accept a Bite from users who feel the same way. Don’t be shy, it’s best you check it out for yourself on the App Store or Google Play!
