Outfit of the Day: Saturday Club's Vanya Dress in Art Print,
and Charles & Keith Glitter Band Flats in Black :)

Had a lovely day with family. We started our morning with a walk
at Henderson Waves Bridge. The weather was cool and it drizzled a
little with some sun shining through. The walk took us to Mount Faber's
Spud's & Aprons cafe, where we ordered up some Root Beer Floats
and a plate of Truffle Cheese Fries with Gravy. It was such an amazing snack.
Fortunately, as we walked back to the carpark, it started to shower.

Met up with my parents and Aunty Martha at Bollywood Veggies for lunch.
We ordered up a storm of food - Garlic Khang Khong, Spinach, Curry Chicken,
Radish Soup, Moringa Tempura, Sweet & Sour Fish, Otah Omelette,
and for dessert, Banana cake with Ice Cream.

Much Love, Lynn

6 May 2017, Sat: 31 is the new 21

On the 5th episode of Asia's Next Top Model Cycle 5,
the models were given to chance to become Maybelline's "IT" Girl.
There were three locations / scenarios in total.
The car scenario represented the "Uptown Princess".
The bar scenario represented the "Midtown Girl".
The stairs scenario represented the "Downtown Edge".

The shoot started at 8.30am with Charlene & Nenny.

For the car shot, we tried taking it right outside the
National Gallery but security chased us away.
Was a blessing in disguise though because the angle that
the car was parked did not light the car well at all.
Nenny's husband then drove us to Marina Bay Sand's outdoor carpark
and angled the car in such a way that the light hit it just right.
The background of trees and buildings was gorgeous as well.

Next, we drove back to National Gallery and spent some time at the
iconic flight of stairs. There were a couple of large banners that
were hanging along the building's facade, so when I was editing the
photograph, I had to remove these distracting banners digitally.

For the final location, I had some trouble finding the exact bar,
and was asking the staff at National Gallery on Friday, if they
recognised the distinctive pattern in the photograph's background.
They directed me to Level 5 and encouraged me to take a look at either
Aura Sky Lounge or Smoke & Mirrors. I approached the manager at Aura,
and he said the background reminded him of the interior in Smoke & Mirrors.
When I checked it out, the location was indeed Smoke & Mirrors.
On the day of the shoot, Smoke & Mirrors only opened at 12pm, so
Charlene & I decided to try our luck and asked one of the staff if we could
take some pictures at the bar before the place opens up officially.
Surprisingly, he agreed without hesitation and we quickly tip-toed inside
and started the shoot. The lighting was amazing because the bar was facing
an unblocked entrance. This was my favourite photograph out of all.

The shoot day officially ended at 12.30pm. Glad to have
spent a creative and fulfilling morning with friends.

Here are my Hougang's Next Top Model recreations.

29 Apr 2017, Sat: The Girls who Chartered a Bus

On the 4th episode of Asia's Next Top Model Cycle 5,
the models had to conceptualise their own #IWokeUpLikeThis photograph.

Here's my Hougang's Next Top Model attempt at it.
I envisioned the styling to look simple, stripped down & sexy.
It is a look that is quite out of my comfort zone,
and I thought it would be a good opportunity to try it out.
For one, I have never ever worn my husband's clothes before.
I do however, listen to a lot of music to unwind.
This picture was taken in my in-law's house, and it has these
gorgeous retro tiles which I've always wanted to capture.
The prop is a step ladder which my mom-in-law uses to reach
high places at home. The height of this step ladder was perfect.
During the shoot, my in-laws were all puzzled and wondering
what in the world I was doing. Pant-less somemore! It was hilarious :D

Also on the 4th episode of Asia's Next Top Model Cycle 5,
the models were "on the move" in a bus photoshoot.

This photoshoot was a little tougher to execute because of its location.
I started emailing bus companies to ask for permission to conduct a
fashion photoshoot in one of their buses, which were all turned down.
Eventually, after scrutinising ASNTM5 E4, I realised that there was a
logo printed on the bus which read, "BusPlus". So I Googled it and found
a picture of that exact bus the models had been photographed in.
It was already Thursday (27 Apr), I had to book the bus quickly.
My buddies shared the rental cost with me, so it was a reasonable price :)
We chartered the bus for exactly one hour, parked on the rooftop.
The shoot was incredibly fun, and we got to doll ourselves up in bling.

Here's my Hougang's Next Top Model recreation of it.
