Singapore Airlines Business Class Meal

I am in Taipei this month; was here last month and back again after briefly going home to clean my apartment and do laundry (j/k). While my trip this time has unexpectedly deviated from its original objective, as one day bleeds into the next, I am freely detaching myself from the general shackles of daily humdrum as I know it in SG. Needed a respite from the restlessness and frustration that I’d been feeling (evidence of double-fisting red wine and champers in above photo), and so far the trip’s working wonders for my soul. More on that later.

Creatory SG 2014

31 Aug 2014

The hippest happening in Singapore during the month of August that got me in a giddy frenzy has gotta be Creatory – an inaugural festival showcasing homegrown, all-local ensemble of tastemakers. All under one roof, of a seven storey warehouse that is, for an incredible weekend which has brought together a creative alchemy where art meets food meets design meets music.

I’m so happy I got to check it out – courtesy of Fiji Water – as the vibe at this popup event was superb and the creative energy was amazing. The warehouse venue had been completely made over as a creative factory and every floor offered a different experience – art gallery, marketplace, rooftop bar, live music, interactive installations, VIP lounge, and food vendors.
