A Weekend Rendezvous with Lady Saigon [Day 1 - Cu Chi Tunnel Tour, War Remnants Museum, Ben Thanh Night Market]

It was my first time flying off alone for a leisure trip.

I wouldn't say that it was spontaneous in a #yolo style,
and it wasn't really a solo trip also because i took the chance to visit one of my bestie from secondary school who is currently working there.
I wish I could romanticise it to say that it was a soul-searching trip,
but it was not.

It was really just a fantastic time spent catching up with a dear friend,
over a span of 2 short precious days.
We talked about the ephemeral nature of love and life,
learnt and discussed about the history of Vietnam at the Cu Chi Tunnel Tour and War Remnant Museum,
and had many heart-to-heart talks over rice-flour dishes and Vietnamese coffee.

All aboard! A Yacht trip out to Lazarus Island :)

To celebrate our 10th Year Anniversary of friendship,
plus birthdays of 2 of my girls,
we hopped on a boat and sailed out to Lazarus Island,
like ballers on a Monday morning.

We booked the 4 hours slot from 9am to 1pm and set sail from Sentosa Cove on a Catamaran.

Our Home, Singapore - A MICappella Mash-up!

When it comes to our favourite National Day songs,
there's no other contender than the piece written by Dick Lee - "Home". 
We decided to mash it up with SG50 Tribute Song "Our Singapore"... 
and there you go! 

Behind the Scenes! 

Top Deck @ Lepark SG!

[Towards The Future] with the Singapore Chinese Orchestra!

Throughout my short years of singing experience as a solo singer, 
i've had the honour of playing with several orchestras, 
including the philharmonic winds & Singapore Youth Chinese Orchestra. 

It thrills me to no end being able to sing with something so majestic 
and indeed MICappella was very fortunate and honoured to be invited by the 
Singapore Chinese Orchestra for not one, but two performance collaborations!!!

"Celebrity Chow" with The New Paper!

This has got to be one of the most enjoyable interview i had thus far!
Probably because i was half drunk by the end of it...

We had a greaaat time sharing with The New Paper about our love for music and food over an amazing spread of Californian Asian dishes & drinks at Adrift by David Myers @ Marina Bay Sands!

City of London Tour 26-27June 2015

It was an overseas tour that i will never forget. 
London took on a different meaning for me this time, and i'm so grateful towards the city for giving me perspective on what life can be.

I poured my innermost feelings to strangers i just met over Pimms, 
i rode a bicycle around town alone, 
i saw babies crying and tourists buying vanilla cones from the ice cream truck, 
i saw people relaxing and chatting over coffee by the pier, 
i sang to strangers who were having their lunchtime bites at the square and some eventually bought our albums, 
i sang at a church without microphones and watched as a mother held her kid in her arms and bobbed along to our tunes. 
I went to a sunday market with my dear bandmates and tried retail therapy. 
My senses were flooded with the sounds of busking musicians and sizzling food on pans, sight of colourful fruit cups and graffiti walls, quirky hipster londeners selling vintage/leather goods, and felt the warmth of the afternoon sunrays against the gentle summer breeze. 

We were lucky to have encountered days of blue skies during our visit in London and according to a friend, it only happens 2 weeks every year. 

Life goes on no matter what happens in the head. And i'm glad London taught me that. 
One of the greatest comfort i got was the band's support, and for that i am so so blessed to have MICappella's love. 
Thank you Juni, Mingwei, Peter, Eugene, Diana and Cal for having my back. 
You guys are such gems.

Rooftop Interview!

My boys!

Lunch Time performance at Paternoster Square! 
So proud to be bearing the Singapore flag :)

Remember Dakota Crescent :'(

The Remember Dakota Crescent Party was held to bid farewell to this small estate built in 1958 
by HDB's predecessor, Singapore Improvement Trust. 
These 17 blocks of low-rise flats have been untouched ever since then 
and the estate houses retro sand-pitted playgrounds, buildings, and the lovely Tian Kee & Co. Cafe etc. 
Sadly, it will be due for redevelopment by 2016, 
so hurry down there to savour the last bit of 1960s SG before it is gone!! 

Check out our stage space on the 2nd level of the building above Tian Kee & Co.! 

Old school charm.

Dayang Solo Diving Trip!

So i decided to go for my first ever solo diving trip. 
It was kinda daunting, the thought of travelling with strangers, 
but they say it will never go wrong with a bunch of divers.. and they were right!!

Cable Car Sky Dining

It was my first time dining in the sky. 
And of course i never would have imagine myself doing something as cheesy as this, 
but it turned out to be one of our most memorable meals dining in private up in the sky :)

We had a first class sunset view!

Malaysian Roadtrip to Kota Tinggi Waterfalls!!


I swear this was one of the most fun i've had with such a big group of crazy people!!!
We set off early in the morning for the inaugural CNY road trip 
to Ein's house and Chanel's Hometown - Kota Tinggi!

Samsung GALAXY Note 4 4G+ & The Samsung Gear S: A Review!

I'm going to be upfront about it,
I have always been an iPhone user and I've never thought I would make the switch to an Android phone. 
I thought it would be a daunting experience 
and I didn't want to go through all the hassle since i've settled for Apple already. 

But when the opportunity arose for me to experience the Samsung GALAXY Note 4, 
I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was for me to adapt and make the change! 
I'm now an Android convert, thanks to Samsung!
