Had a long relaxing drive/walk/shopping trip today to compensate for the crazy drive-abouts on Saturday [i was more of a chauffer than participant really]. Took a pic at the usual boutique in town. Think i'm in love with the huge mirrors [makes mental note to get one for future home]. The GF was doing the shopping route for her new year niceties, i was just happy to tag along for the walkabout. Somehow there was like an intermission of rain for our shopping duration, haha
Drove on down to Chinatown for a look-see at the growing crowds in preparation for Chinese New Year. Sure am glad i wasn't in the jostlin' bunch. Some say its not exactly new year spirit if you ain't jostling and absorbing the atmosphere. I'm fine with the 1-arm distance, thank you...LOL.
Was walking around the Ann Siang Hill/Maxwell stretch towards South Bridge Rd and taking in the old/new sights [will remember to bring the cam next time] and turned up at a delightful find
These lovely pastries sure make my day! I remember my mom and granma always get them for me. Tong Heng pastries makes the best egg tarts in my book. Gotta try to believe!
My other current fave snack are these pineaple tarts courtesy of Jon's mom Aunt Pat:
Just the right taste, not too sweet either. Thanks!
new Disney ads
Check out the new ads, featuring Beyonce as Alice in Wonderland and David Beckham as Prince Phillip in Snow White. Its Beck's 1st US assignment since he's announcement to join Hollywood, i mean LA Galaxy soccer team...
Best shot of the series [by Annie Leibovitz no less] goes to Scarlett Johansson as Cinderella:
Tsumori Chisato's prints are world-renowned, and i just love these photos added by Lena from the 05 and 06 seasons
Awesome colors and creative use of positive and negative spaces!
as the world turns...
Yet another can't-miss you gotta check out, the photo exhibits by Bill Sullivan. Isn't it amazing how much you can interpret, derive and feel emitted when you look at the shots of tube commuters exiting from the turnstiles? Maybe its just me, since i commute by train daily, the pics struck a chord...
Joan Mendicino has these lovely pieces of homeware. Can you spot the bird-like vases?
These glasses will be a charm for Valentine don;t you think?
Check them out and more here!
Caught Factory Girl yesterday. Film was about the explosion and implosion of the life of Edie Sedgwick, Andy Warhol's muse from the times of the The Factory...hence the titular Factory Girl.
So-so stuff, caught it more for the legend/myth as well as for the lovely Sienna Miller, rather than the "documentary" direction the movie seemed to be going in.
Burton x Warhol
This one tied up real nice with the release of the Factory Girl film. Burton collabs with the Warhol foundation for the 2008 collection. Glad to see the Edie sweat, but still hoping to see cow-prints/velvet underground banana's etc. Theres still time to act to put those in production, guys.
