Who says that Dating In Singapore is boring? The last time, I found out that National Library Board was organising Pop Up Craft Parties (which were organised by In Merry Motion!) and I dragged Skai aka c(hubby) down to Bedok Library to do the Happy Flags!

This time, I found out that the final Pop Up Craft Party was at the National Library and they will be conducting String Art!

Needless to say, I was extremely excited for String Art! It looked good and it was honestly quite mafan to do at home, so to be able to craft at a workshop where all tools were provided, sounded awesome!

As it was limited to only a certain number, yours truly behaved in a true blue Singaporean way by coming down early and queuing.

We chose from 5 templates available, I chose heart while he chose travel! First we had to trace the template and then later knock in nails! Skai did a better job than me with the hammer and nails. Guess he really did nailed it. :p

After that, we used wool to wind it around the nails. Funnily, Skai had a hard time here. He actually said 'I can't do this! There is no system to this!'.

Engineers :p

I took over this part to his relief. This was actually the best and most fun part to me!

We really enjoyed ourselves! Am also keen to try out other crafty stuff! I'm looking at trying out floral arrangement and calligraphy too! Do comment if you know of any other workshops!

We are also looking at doing more stuff as a couple together. I think it's really fun and different! Also helps us grow and understand each other more! If you do know of other fun activities, do comment here! After all, I don't believe Dating in Singapore is boring!

It'll also be fun for us to create some stuff for our future home next year. Home decor perhaps? 😉

[Invited event]

Who says Dating in Singapore is boring? Skai aka c(hubby) and I love exploring new places and even try out new activities. When we got the invite to have a hands-on cooking class at ToTT Studio, we decided to try it out!

After all, our place will be coming soon and we've decided we should cook often rather than eating out all the time!

All ready to start cooking!

Who says that Dating In Singapore is boring? I found out that National Library Board was organising Pop Up Craft Parties (which were organised by In Merry Motion!) and I dragged Skai aka c(hubby) aka ching chong boy :p to go down. After all it was organised at Bedok Library which was super near to my place!

I was quite sad that I missed the first workshop! We had fun in this free workshop (totally not sponsored whatsoever to say this!) and we made our own Happy Flags! You can place whatever message you want on your flag! We decided to put motivational and happy messages! Skai did Everything Is Awesome, inspired by the recent LEGO movie then and I used Always And Forever, inspired by The Originals. Also, cos our wedding was #nadskai1314 aka nadskai forever!

We traced the flags according to the shapes we wanted, traced the words out on the respective glitter boards or fabrics and placed them on the flag!

It was fun and very easy! Am super inspired to get crafty! #nadskai participated in another workshop and we'll post up the pictures soon! Any other fun crafty workshops? I made lollipops with Fidelis recently, will post about that soon!

Am keen to try out floral arrangement and calligraphy too! Do comment if you know of any other workshops!

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

I'm not sure if any of you guys may remember this... in 2010, I started this #mysterymakan tradition with Jacelyn, Esther and Fidelis. Each of us would take turns planning makan outings and would only reveal the address on the day itself with no other details. With the Mystery Makan tradition, we visited new places and tried new food! It’s really fun and we all look forward to our Mystery Makan sessions. Personally, I always search for nice themed cafes to showcase in this Singapore Lifestyle Blog.

This time, it was Esther's time to organise! And this has to be my favourite Mystery Makan venue that Esther has organised before!

They also conduct fitness classes such as Zumba, Yoga etc.

I was surprised when i went into the ladies room. Most gyms that I've gone to, looked prettybsimole.. But Phillip Wain's ladies area really took into consideration about our needs.

 

There's changing rooms where shy ladies can change in comfort.

Lots of mirrors! 😡 there are ample hair dryers, cottonbuds, makeup remover and body lotion.

 

 

A nice waiting area for us to relax after our workouts... Shower facilities, sauna and steambath!

 

There are various treatment rooms too. These are where the facials, slimming treatments and massages are done.
