We were doing a photoshoot at the Singapore Botanic Gardens a few weeks ago and I saw this lovely flower on the floor and I had to stop what I was doing and marvel at its beauty. I love moments like these when a something as simple as a flower can stop time and make everything quiet.
I took this photo near the Buddha Tooth Relic temple. The old men were playing checkers and the colors of the pieces really caught my eye.

We were asked to review the Kokoru Corrugated Paper by toprint.com.sg, the local distributor. We were given several packs of Kokoru Ichi, which are long strips of colorful paper, and Kokoru Hachi, which comes in A4 size, to create 3d creations. You can create so many objects by combining the basic shapes.
You can copy the designs from the back of the packet but we decided to make our own garden themed creations just to see if it was really easy to come up with an original design.
The most difficult part is coming up with the design. Once you have a design in mind, you can easily execute it if you built the design using basic shapes. All you need is a pair of scissors, pencil, hole puncher, and hot glue gun to bring your creation to life.
When doing this project be extra careful of the hot glue gun. We managed to burn ourselves with the melted hot glue a few times because we got a bit careless.
Overall we had fun making the models. This is a great activity for kids but you need to be careful with the hot glue gun. You can buy Kokoru products at Evergreen stores.
I was at the MRT station, on my way to work, when I saw this lady carrying a basket of flowers. The flowers were such a beautiful contrast on the platform, where the colors are mostly grey. Initially posted via Instagram.
We were on our way to the Sculpture Square when we came across this crow hanging out on top of the road sign. Initially posted via Instagram.
This was taken at the Singapore Botanic Gardens. I was out for a stroll, the weather was great, and the Bougainvilleas were in full bloom. The name Bumbil means Bougainvilleas in the Visayan dialect in the Philippines. Initially posted via Instagram.
