I'm on ho ho holiday! See you in 2008!

We'll be leaving this afternoon for a short trip to Bangkok to meet up with my siblings, sis-in-law and adorable nephews. We will then share Christmas together back in Singapore. And soon after, we'd have to leave them for HongKong & Macau, flying off with my parents-in-law. Nothing beats Christmas with family, and this is the first time all my siblings will be here in Singapore. Too bad my parents couldn't join us here, due to other engagement. :(

Here's a picture of our live Christmas tree at home. It's our first time having a live Christmas tree from IKEA, so far the tree is coping well with the humid weather.

Thank you for reading my blog, and thanks to all other wonderful reads around the blogland that I enjoyed so much in 2007.

Our family would like to send you all the warmth of Christmas from our home to your home, and wish you a fabulous New Year!! I'll see you again in 2008! xox take care.

a Marimekko blog

I've just found out that there is a Marimekko blog run by AlwaysMod.com, the future home of everything Marimekko. The AlwaysMod Marimekko Blog features Marimekko's latest products and designs, from bags and fabrics to bedroom and bath.

It is also where I learnt about Marimekko licensing some of its popular patterns from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s to H&M’s summer collection 2008. The collection will be sold in H&M stores in 28 countries. *oh how much I wish H&M was here.*

And don't forget to check out the Marimekko Holiday Catalog, available here, or here. Enjoy!

Oh wait! Speaking of Marimekko, one of my Marimekko photos was selected from my flickr, and is now published on Schmap Helsinki Fourth Edition. Schmap is a leading publisher of digital travel guides for 200 destinations throughout the United States, Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. :)


Last thursday Cory emailed me on the recent Dwell.com redesign and the Dwell Design Leader video series that Dwell.com has produced.

The recent Dwell.com redesign gives the site a fresh look, fluid navigation, and flawlessly showcases Dwell’s award-winning editorial content and photography in a way that is distinctly Dwell. As a result, Dwell.com is better positioned than ever as a leader for what’s new in modern design.

The Dwell Design Leader video series is an inside look at some of the most influential, inspirational, and innovative designers in the industry today. From landscape architect Andrea Cochran to prefab architect Michelle Kaufmann to co-housing expert Kathryn McCamant to Airstream designer Christopher Deam, a full spectrum of modern design disciplines are explored from a personal and professional perspective.

Here's the latest on Dwell Design Leader video series, the work of architect Adam Kalkin. That man is a genius! We should have some of his push button and quick houses here. Seriously. Watch it and give it some thought.

Thanks, Cory!


I stumbled upon their site few days ago, and it seems that it's just recently launched. I've learnt some blogs talked about it, but hey, great things are always meant to be conversation pieces :). Supermarket (US) works just like Bouf (UK), where shoppers could buy great things direct from designers. Tons of cool products there, you could check them all out here. And if you think you have cool things to sell, you could let them know here. And oh, they have a cool blog, too. Super!

Singapore Design Festival has just started on Nov 28, and IAMACREATIVEPERSON is taking part of the event. It's a new design initiative to promote creative thinking and action through business, art, design and media to the people of Singapore.

IAMACREATIVEPERSON is showcasing selected famous product ideas and items of Japanese top creators and artists at the Old Supreme Court, Singapore, from Nov 28 till Dec 8, 2007. Plus, there's a design market where you can purchase products from local artists/designers, or the japanese products exhibited. Click on Designers to see the full list of the exhibitors. Above are some shots taken from their photo gallery. A design conference, when DESIGN meets market, will also be held on Dec 3, 2007 at the Victoria Theatre, Singapore. Click here for more details on the speakers.

I have to say IAMACREATIVEPERSON is one of the must-visits of this year's festival. Must, must! Check out the rest of the festival excitement here. Enjoy!
