Road trip

I’m so excited about my trip tomorrow. Something that I’ve never experienced before, I’m looking forward to it. I haven’t been to Malacca in ages and I’m so glad that our next sketching subject is Malacca. I await to see what’s in store during that 5 hour trip. And what more, with other like minded fellow creatives.

Update soon!

Finally back to Singapore. I’m absolutely knackered and my bag is heavy. It has been an interesting trip so far. I wished it was less hot as I got totally baked in the sun! 😦
Malacca is an amazing place. For those who didn’t know, Malacca town made it to the list on the list of UNESCO’s world heritage sites. A mix of European, Chinese and Peranakan all blended in one little community – so pretty. And the rich heritage is amazing. I enjoyed my time with my group, walking about town, trying different things. Getting inspiration, and sitting down nearly for an hour to sketch.

रंग बरसे…

An amazing AND COLOURFUL weekend spent with just the girls together with some friends. We all went to the 3rd annual event of Rang De Holi held in that open space next to Kembangan CC, organized by the Bhojpuri Society of Singapore.

Holi at one point was an Indian-only event. Today, it has become and celebrated as one of the key multi-racial events in Singapore. Indian, Chinese, Malay and Caucasians alike all came together to celebrate this colourful fiesta akin to maybe Mardi Gras? Dancing to Bollywood music, singing and having fun with friends and family at the same time. I also recently discovered thru my blog feeds, that Holi is even revered in S. Korea! That’s right, where Gangnam Style was born! How amazing! In time when war has been declared, festivals and celebrations bring race and religion together as one people. Peace to all.
