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.

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.

At the front of Tian Kee & Co. Cafe was a shelf of retro books!
Who doesn't love Enid Blyton's?

Hanging before performance with the LionCityKia ShiggaShay!

With the boss of Tian Kee & Co. and the lovely ladies from the community dance club!

This has got to one of the most memorable performance singing along a HDB Corridor!!

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!! 

From strangers to friends, we hit off so well and had 4D3N of pure dive, sleep, eat, repeat fun! 
The best part about this trip was we had no internet connection and that really got us bonding!!

I've got my advanced diving license ohh yeahhh!!! 
And... i finally found a bunch of diving buddies to explore more of the deep blue with!!

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!

We opted for the 4 course meal which came with 
Welcome Champagne, Starter and Soup, a Main Course and finally Dessert.
To be honest, the meal wasn't good, but the ambience and my company made up for it :)

Starters - Apple smoked duck.

The cable car went for 3 rounds, each time serving a different course. 
So technically we were kinda rushing to finish our meal before the next round
which to me wasn't that great especially since i am a slow eater.

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!

The whole bunch of us are singers/musicians and plus ones!
Armed with walkie talkies, we took to the roads, 
playing singing games on our walkies throughout the entire journey! 

After a few hours' drive, we reached Kota Tinggi, Chanel's hometown!

Here's Chanel's uncle chilling out in front of his Restoran/Mama shop!

Hoe Heng Mama Shop is owned by Chanel's parents as well
and they were very kind to offer us ice creams on the crazy hot day :D

Old school petrol kiosk

We sat around and performed a song for Chanel's uncle to thank them for their kind hospitality!
