Day 12: Be@rbrick x Fendi

Spotted a giant Bearbrick outside a Fendi Boutique here. A little late to jump on the designers + fashion bandwagon but still got me a little excited nonetheless.

Day 11: You Are What You What?

Eileen insisted that I should not put this picture up as it would paint a pretty bad picture of Singaporean's usage of English. Personally I do not know if it's bad English, lost in translation or the writers trying to be 'creative/different'.

Found this interesting package design - 2 faces on the front - on my supermarket trip this morning.

Day 9: The World is Our Playground

I walk pass this playground near my fiancee's flat practically everyday but today I decided to take a closer look at the make and feel of it. It's sponsored by Little Tykes. No big, bold branding. Just a little logo on the roof of the slide.

And we've named it the Singapore Flyer.

Day 6: Today's Menu

I visited a friend whose wife had just given birth to a baby boy and saw this vending machine at the hospital lobby.
Sorry for the poor photo quality but today's menu is Cheese and Egg Omelette Sandwich and Fillet of Fish Sandwich.

Day 5 - Hair Problem Detection

I think they are selling some hair loss treatment although the graphic illustration baffles me.

4 messages in one go, on a local food centre table.

Day 3 - Matte or Glossy?

Matte tends to be sexier.

Day 2 - Multi-lingual

I had a few people asking me recently what is my first language. I find it quite difficult to explain. There are 4 main races and languages. I'm Chinese. My forefathers came from China. But Singapore, as a country used to be part of Malaysia so the national language is Malay. I can understand some of that but can't speak or write in Malay.

Then there's English, which we are taught since young. In fact I consider English to be the first language as everything in school is taught in English, except of course the respective mother tongues. So there you go.

Revamp & Day 1 - Random Sale

Apologies for not posting for a while. Amongst other things, we've been pretty busy with our website (which has been taking way longer than expected) and our work at DHM.

As you would have probably noticed, we've made changes little by little to the blog just to freshen it up a bit.

And to kick start again, we are doing a picture of a day for the next two weeks while I take a little holiday. Here's the picture of the day - the only flea market of Singapore. It's a lot less organised than London's and the things sold are a lot more random.
