When I last visited Singapore two years back, we went to this place near Chua Chu Kang to try fish spa for the first time. Since you only pay 10S$ for 30min and daddy has the driest feet you will ever come across, we decided we would give it a go today. It was hilarious trying to see him cope with the eager fish biting away at his gross dried up feet. I'm pretty sure it was like a feast to them.
After that we walked around at Bugis for a while but I ended up not getting anything besides a cup of sweet corn. Initially I was on the lookout for a phone case but none of them really caught my eye. They were all either too blinged up or just plain boring. So if you know of a good place, please let me know!
Tomorrow it seems we're going swimming, which is going to be a good opportunity for me to work on my tan. Gotta get my tan lines on you know.
singlet: Cheap Monday, pants: Gina Tricot, shoes: H&M
Today we went to Orchard to get my hair cut. I ended up going to Salon Vim because a lot of bloggers have advertised for them, and somehow I felt more confident getting my hair cut at a place I had heard of before. I wasn't really sure how I was going to describe what sort of style I wanted so I brought some pictures from a ViVi magazine, and when she started cutting away I felt confident we were on the same page. The end result is pictured below. Initially I was completely in love with it, and it was exactly what I had pictured in my head. But now when I look at the pre-haircut photos I took, I feel a slight regret that I ended up going so short, even though that's what I had in mind when I went in. However, I think that's only a natural reaction and it will get some time getting used to. My long hair was very damaged with a lot of split ends anyway, so it needed to be done.
...my cousin read what I wrote above and started laughing at me because she says I'm trying to point out positive things about my 7cm chop, to make me feel better about myself haha.
Long time no see. I am now in what my cousin refers to as "the land of cleanliness" aka Singapore. So far we haven't done much in terms of activities, considering I landed on Monday morning and I am still troubled with jet lag. Today though, I ignored my bestfriend's sensible and economical advice, and forked out the money for a Canon EOS 600D. My first impression of the camera is a positive one, and I was never left unsatisfied with my old Canon EOS 350D. There's only one thing that's been bugging me: You see my old camera was still working, but the focus was rather messed up, and instead of buying a new lens I went ahead and got myself a new camera. Smart or dumb? We'll see how I feel in a month. I'm crossing fingers, toes and all things crossable, in hope that my money was well invested. And the pictures above were all taken with my new camera, so you can be the judge of the quality, and if they look better than my old photos.
I also got a pair of flatforms from Charles & Keith. They were killing my feet today, but after some wear and tear I hope they'll fit my feet a little better. Since flatforms are somewhat of a rarity in Norway, I just went a bit crazy and got them on an impulse.
Shopping aside though, I'm really happy to be here. It feels good to walk on Singaporean soil again.
