Looking back at 2018

It’s that time of the year, when I get older, and the end of the year is nearing. Well, I get older every day, but it’s just more significant in October. It’s the best month. At the end of 2017, I was all about finding purpose in life, living purposefully and thoughtfully. I had plans to execute. I achieved some of the goals I set: I conducted 3 workshops, and managed to keep up studying Japanese. I still cannot do a clean single pirouette 100% of the time, and my fitness goals are basically rubbish. I’ll take the small wins. One of my goals was to break even this year for Aiorimono. I can’t be doing this at a loss,...

Looking back at 2017

I started off this year really determined to get Aiorimono up and running as a full time thing, and I'm ending the year with a full time job at a local dancewear company. I'm probably as millennial as a millennial can get – chasing dreams, working for passion, and hoping money comes along with it so that more dreams and passions can be fulfilled. I never thought I'll end up so immersed in the arts, because I never excelled (or had much interest) in the arts while I was in school. But once I started working, I started to see how the arts enhances our quality of life, and how important it is for the arts to exist. If I...

May Projects

Since the last event at Public Garden (thank you to everyone who came by to say hi, and also everyone else who discovered my existence and a few adventurous ones who tried Saori weaving), I finally stopped weaving and sewing like a sweat shop worker. I got myself a full-time job again (loving it by the way) so that I can take my time to experiment with all the weaving styles I learnt during my 6 weeks YOLO Japan trip, and basically have some fun. #1 - Dyeing Finally got a swift umbrella so that I can separate the yarn for dyeing. I should really start taking more process photos, but I usually get too engrossed in my work that...

Public Garden Consumer Trade Show

Aiorimono is going to be at Public Garden this weekend! I've been busy weaving and sewing since I came back from Japan a week ago, all in preparation for this art market. That's also why I have not updated my online shop, because everything is going to be at Public Garden. So please come by and visit me! There's free wifi and air-con, which is what we all love in hot and humid Singapore. See you there!

Tokyo, 2017

Hi guys, I'm currently in Tokyo! Loving the museums here. I visited the Mori Art Museum, which is on the 53th floor of Roppongi Hills. The current exhibition "N. S. Harsha: Charming Journey" wasn't just charming - it was thought provoking and absolutely brilliant. Harsha's incorporates a lot of cultural, social and economic globalisation issues into his art, especially what he sees in his hometown of Mysuru. There was an exhibit of the workshop he did with students in Japan, where he asked them to draw their dreams for the future on plain white shirts. "We don't know what the future will be like, so I did something that looks a bit mysterious." "I want to live with Doraemon." "I...
