Everything bought from Daiso here!

So if you're looking for toys, don't bother about buying expensive ones! Just buy them from Daiso! Miu Miu has destroyed plenty of toys so I've learnt the expensive lesson!

Who says Dating in Singapore is boring?!

This is a Sundate - #nadskai at it's best entry. For more info about the themed blog posts, do read the entry here.

Skai aka c(hubby) and I had actually wanted to travel for his birthday weekend but that weekend was my ex-colleague Christine's church wedding! Needless to say, we decided to change our plans! Plus Chris had chope-ed me for a while back! Am glad that we attended her wedding, it was a beautiful and touching ceremony! <3

Instead, we decided to have a SIngapore Staycation at Village Hotel Albert Court! We really enjoyed my birthday celebration at Village Hotel Katong and when we saw a promo on a Colourful Weekend, I was hooked la. Colourful leh. Colours and Nadia = DONE DEAL.

I think nowadays, we got for Staycations to get ideas for our house next time. HAHAHAHA LOVE this bed! Wallpaper also chio but perhaps in a different colour for #nadskaihome?

Love the "water colour" stained tiles. Pity we can't change much for our new place as flooring, tiling are all included.

Comfortable and spacious room.

We booked a deluxe room. The Colourful Weekend promo came with a Fabric Painting session. C(hubby) and I have been searching for fun activities to do during our #Sundates. And we loved the idea of a mini workshop during our staycations!

We had a closed fabric painting session with an instructor. C(hubby) and I decided to do a piece together.

Untitled

We chose this piece! The instructor had already drew some outlines and all we had to do was colour it!

Our view!

Instructor guiding us and teaching us how to mix colours alongside various techniques like shading.

Isn't it a decent effort?

We really had fun! It's different painting with Acrylic as compared to Poster Colours! Can't wait to try other fun arty farty stuff with c(hubby)!

During our staycation, we nua-ed as woke up quite early for Christine's wedding so we felt super sleepy! That's the best thing about c(hubby), he doesn't mind nuaing. HAHAHHAA.

The next day, we woke up bright and early for the buffet breakfast. (breakfast is his thing, I usually prefer to sleep in)

This is a Foodie Fridays TGIF! It's time to get fat on Fridays! entry under my themed blog posts! For more info about this Singapore Food themed blog posts, do read the entry here.

Sometime ago, BBF (Best booby friend) Fidelis and I attended a Chocolate Masterclass with Chef Jordi Farres at Escribà Academy courtesy of FoodNews and De Dietrich!

It was actually quite a simple class where we learnt to play around and create with Chocolate. We melted chocolate and made those cute chocolate lips and even outlined a fierce looking dragon!

It was a simple and fun class! Really enjoyed it with Fidelis and also the funny Keropokman who helped me with some of the pictures taken in this entry!

I personally enjoyed such classes and I do hope to try out other classes too! On a separate occasion, I had a fun time making lollipops with Fidelis at her place! But that's for another entry! Am also keen to make macarons and cake pops!

Has anyone tried the Philips Air Fryer? I saw misstamchiak's pictures making Chocolate Lava Cake with it and it looks so drool worthy! Gian!

Anyway, I hoped that you enjoyed these pictures! If you have any workshops or classes that you'll like to recommend I try, do let me know!

This is a Thursday's Travels Anything about previous, current and future (upcoming) travel exploits entry under my Travel themed blog posts! For more info about the themed blog posts, do read the entry here.

The most beautiful stop during our honeymoon wasn't Paris in my humble opinion. It was Venice. It was just breathtakingly beautiful. It's been said that Venice is sinking. :( It's sad that this beautiful place is sinking more everyday. If you're travelling to Europe, I would highly recommend visiting Venice!

For our Venice leg, we stayed at Quality Hotel Delfino Venezia Mestre which costs us SGD$330.47 for 2 nights. Hotel wasn't spectacular, rooms were dull and simple but they sufficed. Location wasn't ideal though. We got lost looking for the hotel. :/ We also had to take a bus to the main city which costed us EUR18 and we could continue to take other buses for  12hrs.

Protip: Try to book hotels with breakfast so that you can load up. Food is expensive in Europe and we rather whack the buffet breakfast, have some snacks / dessert for lunch and a very good dinner.

I've seen many posts about reusing boyfriend's clothes, coverting boyfriend's shirt into a dress and whatnots. I think it's a hell of a great idea! I get to enlarge my wardrobe by simply diving into my husband's  wardrobe!

During our honeymoon in Europe, I started by koping the hubby's flannel shirt and wearing it!

Here's the original outfit. Sorry there isn't a full length picture cos he isn't into the Outfit of the Day shots. Sometimes he'll take it if I prod him to do so but most of the times he's taking my OOTDs instead. :p

IMG_0472

It's a simple thick flannel shirt from Cotton On (if I'm correct) which was warm enough for the chilly weather.

IMG_0567I borrowed it a few days later, wore it with shorts and stockings (with little hearts on them!), with a black belt and folded up my sleeves! Tadah! New dress!

What do you think? I'm gonna start using Skai's clothes from now on!

Tips on Tuesdays : "Steal" your partner's clothes and jazz it up into yours! I'm gonna try out more variations soon! Have you tried anything like this before? Do comment in this entry! I'll love to see your outfits!
