The Bing Necklace

Posted on Mar 27, 2012 in Bing, Reviews & Advertorials, Style

If you’ve been observant, you would have noticed that I’ve been wearing a new necklace alot lately. I call it the Bing necklace and it was generously customised and made for me by Valerie from My Little Bow. They are an online fashion store and have all kinds of customised name accessories, like necklaces, rings, bracelets, bangles, earrings and keychains. I’ve wanted a Bing necklace from the first time I had watched Sex And The City and discovered that the main character, Carrie had a Carrie necklace. I want! I want! I want! It took a long time before I finally have one because I’ve never liked the name necklaces I saw in the stores or online. Either the fonts were ugly. Or the workmanship was bad. Or it was so chunky, it would look like it wore me...

Arts On Main : 12 Decades Art Hotel Part 2

Posted on Mar 31, 2011 in Art & Culture, Bing, Singapore, Style

Continued from Arts On Main : 12 Decades Art Hotel Part 1.. Here are some more interesting rooms that I saw. Room #1966-1976. This room explored the history of a building called the Carlton Centre in Joburg. Back in the decade of 1966-1976, the Carlton Centre was one of the very few places in the city where inter-racial socialising was permitted. The layout of the room represents the Carlton Centre’s 360 degree viewing deck over Joburg. It was a lovely black and white room. Weird part was, although the rooms were elegant, the external view wasn’t always so interesting. I noticed fittings all over the building in their raw condition. Step into another room.. Room #1896-1906 to be exact.. and be wowed again. There was lots of Asian influence in the design to illustrate the significance of the Asian...

Arts On Main : 12 Decades Art Hotel Part 1

Posted on Mar 30, 2011 in Art & Culture, Bing, South Africa, Style

It didn’t take me very long to discover that South Africa is a country that’s very rich in art and culture. The local work is extremely creative and vibrant and I’ve been loving it. A friend took me to this area called Arts on Main. Arts on Main is a hub for Johannesburg’s creative community. It’s on the east side of Joburg city and the area is called the Maboneng Precinct. I had the privilege to check out one of the hotels in the neighbourhood, called the 12 Decades Art Hotel. It’s literally the most interesting hotel I’ve ever been to. The hotel seemed simple when I entered it. It wasn’t W Hotel, Ritz Carlton or anything like that. I felt like I was walking into a art gallery! Go up to the room floors and you’ll see raw...
