Aidan getting ready to go out..

Went to Vivo City for the first time today. Was home early so I decided to bring the boy there to check out the place. Hubs refused to drive there during the weekends since he heard what a madhouse it was so I had no choice but to go on a weekday.

The boy had fun at the outdoor playground. While Nenita was looking out for him, I took the opportunity to browse around..Honestly, nothing really interesting. I recalled at a seminar on branding I attended where Susan Sim from Mapletree (I heard she's no longer there) was telling the participants that shopping at Vivo City would be a fab experience because it would have shops that no other places in Singapore would have..as it didn't want to be just like another Orchard Road mall. She even said that they had to turn down some well-known brands who wanted to be in the mall. Dunno for real or not. But don't think they managed to achieve that at all. I was actually shopping at Orchard Road the day before so I've seen most of the stuff already. And some of the shops at Vivo City are also at Harbour Front..which is ridiculous because they are right next to each other. So after 3 hours at Vivo City, I only ended up buying clothes for Aidan from Gap. I like their boys clothes. It's so hard to find nice boys clothes in Singapore!!

But there's something which i liked in the ladies' toilet..

Yes, a urinal! At first I thought I went to the wrong loo..and then i realised that it was meant for li' boys just like Aidan.
Great idea especially for parents like moi who have sons who always tell u at the very last minute that they have to pee!
Edit: Understand that urinals in ladies' loos are quite common now *feels suaku*..
Oh well, I guess I just haven't been going to those other malls :P

Pics taken at Sushi Tei!

his fave edamame beans!

asking for more teapot soup..

Nenita took this pic coz she thought he was so cute..
When the waitress handed me the credit card slip to sign, Aidan insisted on writing his name too.
So she turned the receipt around and told him to write his name there..and he happily signed his name..

=)
*****************************************

Attended a beadmaking workshop at Beadhub on Sunday. Actually, it was a TNP Lifestyle event we organised for our readers. Since bbhomeJune was attending it, I thought I might as well join in to see how I would fare.

I'm not exactly a very creative person..actually, I suck at arts and craft. I'd attended a scrapbook making course before (also organised by TNP) and my work was so bad that I was too ashamed too show it to anyone. Even the instructor didn't have anything positive to say about it. She complimented most of the participants but when she came to me, all she said was "nice pics" and then went on to tell me how my work could have been improved.

It was quite interesting I must say..but I gotta admit I'm not a DIY person. I simply don't have the patience, I guess. Thankfully I had the option of choosing technical class during my sec school days. I would have flunked home economics.I wasted so much time just thinking of which stones to choose and deciding on the look of the necklace and so I ended up doing just one necklace after 2 hours (most of the other ladies made earrings too :P)

June used the stones on the left and mine's the one on the right

Moi modelling my completed work of 'art'..
okay lah,at least I'm happy enough with it to show it off..

Well, am definitely not gonna quit my day job. But I came out of the course with a better appreciation for the art of jewelry-making and jewelry makers like farahdean & charkl! Not easy man!

Okay..I know I'm super late. Most of you have already blogged about mengchooMong's housewarming which took place last Sat so I won't write much..Just peektures okay =)

Thank you. It is not easy always but so fun if you enjoy it.

Your completed piece is nice for a first try, a combo of strong colours. Shows the strength you have! :)

BTW there are a couple of ladies toilet with a boy's urinal now. Plaza Singapura IIRC is one of them.

i found it quite taxing on the eye though..and my back ached after a while :P (old age lah)

hmm, i thought my piece looked too common..i realised that everyone thought someone else's jewelry was better. the grass is always greener i guess.

heh..i sound damn suaku then..havent been to plaza singapura lately actually!

Not bad lah, I like your beaded necklace, nice strong colours... :)

Yah Vivocity really not fantastic IMO. And the much hyped Gap's flagship store isn't even the one in Vivo! Heh.

well, it's okay if i don't plan to do my shopping at Orchard. Afterall, most of the shops I always go to are there too. So it's a good alternative to going into town. I think pple in the west probably appreciates it more. It's a longer distance from my place to VC than to orchard so i'll still prefer to shop there..

where else is it gonna be at? your mall? at wisma too right?

Actually, your necklace is quite nice! Love the colour combi and they really stand out. Maybe you can start your own bead shop!

Your completed necklace is very nice. I like the colour as it's suits you very well.

Lots of places have little boys urinals now and it makes going to the toilet with our little boys so much easier.

I haven't seen Aidan's pics for a while and he's like a BIG boy now.
I went to Vivocity on Monday for the first time. Didn't feel it was anything special too.. jus a bigger shopping mall. I didn't even managed to browse at GAP cos Kimberly was EVERYWHERE. Will prob try to go down again one day without the girls.
i quite like the colours of the beads you chose. It stands out and easy to match with clothes.

Nov. 9th, 2006 10:00 am (UTC)
yeah it's like that! your li' girl look different each time you post (esp since you don't post tt regularly!)

the li' girls clothes at gap are not bad too! you could get stuff for both your girls!

I've been to Vivo like 3 times this week!

Shopping is nothing fantastic but the food.... check out Corduroy& finch and Crystal Jade. Both faces the Harbour front... reminded me a little of Harbour City in HK...

I can't believe you went for the bead class... haha...
angeliatay
Nov. 9th, 2006 10:17 am (UTC)
where is corduroy and finch? i had a hard time looking for a place to eat so i ended up at sushi tei.

bopien..work lah and june was attending the class mah. cant leave her alone :P

Nov. 9th, 2006 10:15 am (UTC)
most of the shops are what you would find in orchard road..but some that arent are like ted baker and gap. it's not that bad i guess..my timing was bad. i just spent last week and the day before shopping at orchard road so i've seen most of the stuff at vivo city.

Nov. 9th, 2006 03:13 am (UTC)
yeah. I also love to see little urinal in ladies toilet, esp when there's a long queue. Cos Jarrett don't wear diaper so I have to be very "ON" to bring him to pee.

I don't like Vivo city too. I went there alone on Monday, planned to do some shopping. But after an hour, I feel like getting out of that place. Blur me, I didn't see Gap there :(

btw, I like your necklace. Looks very nice on you ;)
angeliatay
Nov. 9th, 2006 10:13 am (UTC)
hmm...i think i may have done more shopping if I was alone and had more time..Gap was on the first floor leh.

I actually like Vivocity. Because almost everything is there, so I don't have to walk from buildings to buildings like in Orchard Road. They have some stores I thought carried quite nice range of clothes. Plus, it's really more convenient for me. But don't like the crowd though...Sesame

the mall is good for the westerners who want to avoid town. i was expecting more after what was presented to us during the seminar which was why I was disappointed. but i know what u mean..some of the shops i often patronise are there..but i probabby won't go there often because of the distance..Orchard Rd is much nearer.
