3D map.

I was absolutely fascinated with this soft plastic 3D map during a dinner in a log cabin out in the forests, on Lake Yamanakako near Mount Fuji in Japan (my friend pointed out exactly where we were on the map).

I imagined stepping out of that log cabin into a surrounding environment that looked exactly like the map - with large names, markings, measurements all printed on the ground - this way I won't ever get lost! Except, maybe I would have needed a Japanese dictionary, because I can't read Japanese.

Singaporean ghetto style.

When I took the train home, I would see young kids in full baggy hip hop gear with one pant leg up on a knee and one pant leg down, walking with that gangsta limp, get off at stations like Pasir Ris, and I would think, "Hmmm... I didn't realize that Pasir Ris was that rough a neighbourhood..."

So I came up with the design below and hand-stitched it onto a t-shirt. Yes I used to live in Kembangan.

And in case you aren't aware, that is the code number of the Kembangan MRT station.

Hermes P.S. I Silk You

This cool portrait of me was shot by photographer Justin Jonah Ng. It was shot for the Hermes P.S. I Silk You project and will appear in ELLE Singapore soon!

Spearheaded by Madeleine Ho from Hermes, Singaporean personalities get their portraits specially photographed for the project, which then get printed on postcards. These postcards are sold in sets of 10 and sold at $50 per set, with proceeds benefiting Beautiful People.

Beautiful People is a volunteer platform that connects professionals and the skilled with teenage girls from various voluntary welfare organisations, to positively impact lives through mentoring, life-skills, development, work exposure and friendship.

From 30 Oct – 15 Nov 09, there will be an exhibition of these postcards as well as a studio set up in front of Wisma Atria and Ngee Ann City on Orchard Road. At the studio, you can have fun experimenting with ways to wear the iconic Herm├Ęs silk scarf. Stylists and photographers will be on hand to produce your very own set of postcards. The fee for this fun goes to assist Beautiful People in their work!

I have also included some behind-the-scenes snapshots of the photoshoot (I LOVED the Hermes heels!) and the super successful launch party held at House in Dempsey!

Juliette Has A Gun perfume launch party at Black Market.

The grandson of fashion legend Nina Ricci, Romano Ricci, was in town to launch his perfume range called Juliette Has A Gun. There are 3 scents: Miss Charming (my personal favourite), Lady Vengeance and their signature scent, Citizen Queen.

I was chosen to be one of his three Brand Ambassadors for Singapore. Juliette Has A Gun is THE hottest edgiest niche fragrance in Paris and is sold in Colette, so it is pretty cool to have it selling in The hansel Shop, for the edgy cool Juliette spray girls to wear pieces from hansel's Robot Girl! collection and to have met Romano in person at the launch party held at Black Market.

Romano says he wears his fedora hat all the time, even in Singapore's hot and humid weather!

The fragrances are now available in The hansel Shop, so pop by! We have testers for you to try them out!
