#JetSetKex in Bali, The Yoga Barn!

It was the first week of the year 2016,
and i had really wanted to treat myself to a birthday trip. 
So just 5 days before take-off,
i found myself booking a trip to Ubud, with my soul-sista Serena no less!
Off we went on a spiritual journey!

We had only 2 things on the list - Yoga and scaling Mount Batur! 

The Yoga Barn 

I did my research on the existing yoga packages offered in Bali and found them all grossly overpriced!
I didn't need luxurious massages not sumptuous meals. 
All i wanted was to deepen my yoga practice, immerse myself fully in nature's embrace, 
and start 2016 with a clear mind. 

I was seeking for inner quietness and peace. 
So instead of going for Yoga Retreat packages, Serena and i bought a 10 class card with The Yoga Barn and completed them within 3 full days in Ubud!

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!

[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!
