Our Trip to the Civic District Outdoor Festival 2017

Image
Few weeks ago, I went to the Civic District Outdoor Festival organised by the Singapore National Gallery with my younger brother. Honestly, I'm mostly under the rock about such events, haha. So I have to rely on my bro to know about the going-ons of these mostly free events. 

So we had the projection done on the facade of the National Gallery. I don't have a picture of the short animated film but below, you can see how it looked like. It's basically a projection that played with lights in different colours, heights and so on..making use of the ridges of the building facade. Honestly, I still think the best one I saw was years ago at the Singapore Art Museum. It really felt like the pillars were animated or moving. Now, it just looks like a huge projection screen, lol.

But of course, I'm no animator or light expert, haha..and I know these things are really expensive and really hard to make. So I would usually bother to stay and watch until the end..lost..but nevertheless,…

My Strong by Zumba Routine & The Fight Against Diabetes

I've talked about Strong by Zumba workouts before. Nowadays I can do a Strong by Zumba workout without feeling like dying midway, lols. Those jumping jacks, burpees, push ups..*groans* but now they're awesome (ok, not so much the push ups) because after that, you feel so good, provided you follow through the movements and push the tiredness away. In between, there will be mini breaks so you recharge a bit before going into full swing again. Yesterday, for the first time..my friend joined in because her yoga class was not organised due to not able to secure the venue. So yay, company for two weeks!

So now I have also been working out at home last couple of weeks by watching a few Strong by Zumba related videos. They can't post the whole thing but there are definitely videos that can make you work out bucket loads of sweat. So if you're shy but still want to work out, home workouts are actually good for you too in the privacy of your home.

Of course you can still consider …

Indie Music that Brought Out the Feels in You

I am still not over the power couple on Shadowhunters separating but well, they will eventually get back together. I just know it. Anyway, I shall not be too obsessed over it. I just loved how they tied the memories back to the present times in through flashbacks. We were given the summary how Alec, the always uptight one, began to slowly open up his heart to Magnus even though he was still wary and unsure, and eventually giving in to his feelings on his wedding day no less, despite their different backgrounds. Also, the flashbacks would also make you realise how they were just meant to be with each other like soul mates :) That's why we were not happy with the break up, though it was necessary at that point of time.

I mean come on, who wouldn't be attracted to the charming and powerful warlock. And then pair him with a pretty face....argh, come on! Alec had also received backlash from his mum but he had always stood firm against her. She eventually realised came to accept that…

When You Have to Make Difficult Decisions

Disclaimer: This is a written piece about the relationship of Magnus and Alec aka Malec in Shadowhunters Season 2B Episode 18. If you wish to read, please continue :)

So my heart just broke a million pieces today. I had been looking forward to the last few episodes of the Shadowhunters, and more so for today, because of the Malec heavy scenes. Unfortunately, my heart became heavy as well when I tuned in to Youtube for updates and the second update was about...their breakup..NOOOooOO!!

Technically, we are not too sure if they have broken up because the words were not uttered. Thanks to the manipulative nature of the Seelie Queen 😒, Magnus had to make the difficult decision over his love for a Shadowhunter because now it concerns his people, the group of Downworlders, who over centuries, could not get along with the Shadowhunters and especially the Clave, which is the like the government of the Shadowhunters. Because of a certain mortal instrument, they are now more at loggerheads espe…
