Singapore Night Festival 2015 - Glitz and Glamour


The Singapore Night Festival has indeed come a long way from the beginning, ever since its inception 8 years ago. And for this year, the Singapore Night Festival 2015 has proven to successfully wow the city with its spectacular live performances and lighting art installations, given the huge turnout which I witnessed last weekend when I was there.

Before I went to the event, I have no idea what to expect, nor have an idea where I should go or what I should watch... Except that I chanced upon videos of some arts performances on Instagram which caught my interest. For you out there, you can visit the official Singapore Night Festival website at www.nightfest.sg, to get more information pertaining to the acts and displays that will be happening for the second AND final weekend for this event.

You know how we were warned not to play with fire when we were young? Seems like there is the fun and thrill in playing with fire (with practice and under professional guidance and safety precautions, of course haha!) when one gets older... As what the team from local Flow Arts collective Starlight Alchemy has shown us. :p

Overloaded with cuteness, is The Anooki. They are the smallest Inuits in the world, and the playful nature of theirs did not fail to entertain the crowd who gathered at the grass lawn right in front of the National Museum of Singapore. They are aired for about seven minutes each time, with a seven minutes' interval between each "performance". I caught the performance twice... Once for photo taking, once for video filming purpose.

Check out the 7-minutes performance of The Anooki in my video below:



After watching The Anooki, I went into the National Museum to view the Little Nyonya's Dream exhibition, and took photos with some of the printed Nyonya characters (Hi fellow Peranakans! ;p ).

I decided to call it a night and head off for supper, when I was greeted by a tune of addictive beats. Walking towards the crowd that had once again gathered at the grass lawn, I saw a group of performers that were dressed in LED-illuminated outfits, moving to the beats and rhythm of their own music creation.

These entertaining and talented folks, which I have found out later, is a group named World Beaters Music, hailing from the United Kingdom (Oh London, I miss you so!!!). I love their high-impact drumming, how their drums and costumes utilized LED lighting into their performing acts, and how they interact with the audience! Their performance was certainly the highlight of my time at the Singapore Night Festival, and was certainly the best way to end off my Saturday night!!


Check out my video that I filmed of the World Beaters Music!




This is all that I am blogging on, in regards to the Singapore Night Festival 2015. I hope it had gotten you interested to head down this weekend to be part of this modern arts festival. There are some performances that will be showing this weekend, so check out the official website for the exact zones and timings.


I would have gone down again this weekend to catch the other performances and art installations... However, I am overseas from now till next week, so I have to give this weekend a miss. I'm still glad that I have gone down last weekend, and I am still very amazed with the drummers even to this day. :)

Latest Hair Session at Salon De Choix

Here's the latest post about my hair session with Salon De Choix. But before I go on to share more about it, I would like to gladly announce that I have been signed up for yet another term to be their ambassador!! I have been so thankful to the lovely peeps at Salon De Choix for being my hair salon sponsor all these years --- Styling and taking care of my hair, and always having me to look so good that I walk out of the salon each time feeling like I have a million bucks in my pocket!


And Salon De Choix, in my opinion, is a good salon in Singapore to have one's hair makeover done at. Hencecit has always been my honor and pleasure to work with them. If they aren't, I would have stopped with them long ago, as I know I am responsible for whatever I "promote" on my blog. ;)


It has been awhile since I colored my hair (the last time was just before I flew to UK to live there), hence you can see that the color looked pretty washed out. It looked dry too. I was open to suggestions for a new hair color. Chester, my wonderful hair stylist, proposed trying Mocha brown.

He advised that a darker shade will have the hair to look healthier. We have tried this "trick" a couple of times previously, so why not? What's more, it has been awhile since I did a dark shade for my hair and I didn't try mocha brown before. Mocha brown is akin to medium brown, hence it will be suitable for both school and work. He used the 8.8 Mocha on my hair.

If you are like me, whose hair has had highlights done previously, and with a various shades of brown, you can skip doing that each time when you are at the salon. You can simply do a full-head hair color and just do highlighting every now and then. Afterall, you will still get the various shades of color, and save some money by doing so!

After letting the hair dye to be absorbed into the hair, it was on to the soothing hair wash, while lying on the electronic massage chair. This is pure bliss, I tell you. Another thing that I liked about getting my hair done at Salon De Choix is that I will never get hungry, thirsty or bored. They have a good variety of drinks (hot and cold), snacks and the latest magazine editions.

Sometimes, one's scalp may feel itchy from the hair dye. This does not mean that it is an allergy. To 'cool' the scalp, hair mist was sprayed onto my hair. Definitely a cooling feeling when the mist touches the scalp.

Next, the hair treatment cream was applied onto my hair and then the steam machine was used to better penetrate the treatment cream into the hair strands.

Currently, Salon De Choix has this special type of hair treatment program, under the Kérastase Densifique range, called the Densifying Ritual. It is a 4-step treatment that helps in genetic hair loss and hair thinning. In addition, it creates a fuller volume and thickening effect (but without the heavy feeling). This is possible through the use of stemoxydine, which reveals up to 1,700 new hair in 3 months (based on a test done).

The professionals at Salon De Choix will recommend the suitable treatment program based on your hair type and condition. Chester said that the above-mentioned type was suitable for me, NOT because I'm losing hair, but because my hair strands appear to be too thin (which will then lead to breakages). Hence this was more to strengthen my hair.


The serum from the selected range was applied onto my scalp.
This was followed by a head massage, for better absorption of it.

You know how you are always afraid that your hair stylist may snip off more inches than you want? I never have this problem with Chester. He knows exactly what I want for my hair. And this point, is VERY important when it comes to choosing your hair stylist.

After the cut, it was time for a blowout and style! The last step but my most favorite as it would be a short while later that I would actually be all styled and dolled up to the nines.

My hair feels soft and luscious, and definitely looks healthier. A proper layering cut done by Chester ensured that I would not look like I have a thick mane of hair, but at the same time, not too thin that I wouldn't have been able to bun my hair (since that's what I normally do when am home).
