Wah! Korea Party

As I wrote in this post, I was coming to Wah! Korea Party, and it was yesterday! The schedule was 2-11 PM, but me and my friends arrived there at 4 PM and finished at 10 PM. The party was located in warehouse hall at Scape, near Cineleisure Orchard. That was the first time I went inside Scape, a shopping mall that newly opened last year as part of youth park where young people gather and hang out. Flea market is held there very often. I did feel young again being around that area.

Inside the hall, there were few stalls inside the hall: Traditional Games where we could try a Korean traditional boardgame, Spa Scene where we could have makeover free from Spa Scene, Cyber Online Game where we could play and battle with wii, Photozone and Calligraphy Zone where we could take polaroid picture with a couple dressed in hanbok and have our names written in hangul, Koryo where we could have some drinks (they had soju after 9!) from a-cafela, Buffet Korean foods, and Korea Tourism Organization (…

Audi Fashion Festival 2011: Francis Cheong Couture

Last week, 13-19 May, there was a big Fashion Festival here in Singapore, presenting international and Asian top designers, like Missoni and Antonio Berardi. This annual event actually has been held three times, sponsored by Audi which this year has the theme "Driving Imagination". Some shows are opened to public and we could buy the tickets via Sistic.

Luckily, together with some other bloggers, I was invited by omy to attend one of the shows: Francis Cheong Couture featuring Christy Chung (thanks, omy!). It was held on last Tuesday 9PM in Tent @ Orchard, in front of Ngee Ann City.



Join Korea Club in Singapore

Last week my friend who's obsessed with Korea (after watching some KDrama) like me, found ads about this upcoming Korea party and asked me to come together.

What is it?
I also don't know haha everything about Korea just makes me excited. Well, actually you can see the list of activities on the above link.

How much is it?
Ticket price is $30 for public, $25 for Wah! Korea Club member, $20 for member who buys in early bird period until May 16th.

How to be a member?
We can fill up the application form via online, or directly visit Korea Tourism Organization office in Singapore. The card will be printed immediately on the office. It's free!

Where is the office?
It's called Korea Plaza, located in Samsung Hub, Raffles Place (walking distance from Raffles Place MRT). It's opened only weekdays (Mon-Fri) 10 am - 7 pm, so we went there as fast as we could after finished work on Thursday. When we arrived, there was K-Pop dance course going on. The place is very exciting and colo…

Visiting Biennale 2011

As I don't understand and not interested too much in art, I rarely visit an art exhibition. But this Biennale 2011 is held in a unique venue that I haven't been before: Old Kallang Airport. It is the first civil airport of Singapore. I would never visit this abandoned building if not for this exhibition. And it is free admission. This event has been held three times so far, but for me it is the first time.

Exhibition in Old Kallang Airport
About 1.5 hours later, we took free shuttle bus at 12.15 PM to another free venue of Biennale 2011: Merlion Park. Two weeks ago I also came to this place but did not go inside because the queue was very long. This time the queue was quite long too, but we just tried it. And apparently it did not take too much time for waiting. When entering the hotel room, we should take off our footwear. Here some pictures inside.

Inside Merlion Hotel
No water pouring from Merlion's mouth, but we can be so much close to this famous icon of Singapore.

Traveling Soundtracks

About 4 days ago, I listened up to Musicovery again, after feeling sick with playlist in my iPod. Its interface was changed a lot in a better way. I tuned in What's new? for the new songs (up to 1 year ago) while continuing my work in the office. Suddenly it played one familiar song that reminds me of France. At first I thought it was one of Amélie movie songs, but the lyric/melody was not too French. I opened the tab to check the title and singer: Riverside by Agnes Obel..... "hemm never heard about that".

And finally I realized, it was a song that accompanied me in flight to/from Paris last time. It is a slow and relaxing song so people can sleep conveniently during the flight. I like that song, but did not know what song it was (thank you Musicovery for discovering it for me). Oh what a nostalgic song, now I keep listening to it when I sleep, to remember those days in Europe. I really miss it.


Here are some my traveling soundtracks other than Riverside above.
