Making cheese at Citizen Farm!

On an early Saturday morning I ventured all the way to 60 Jalan Penjara to visit the Citizen Farm. (Facebook is at Citizen Farm in case you want updates from them!)

There’s no penjara (jail) that I know of, just a nice edible garden farm of sorts.

My main reason was to attend the cheese making workshop by Annisa of Milky Whey Cheese who came all the way from Kuala Lumpur! (You can check out her instagram too at @milkywheycheese.)

Also that’s a chicken who was eating the mint on the other side before one of the Citizen Farm people shooed it away since his food was already in a tray.

Ohhhh my goodness. I learned how to make mozzarella cheese. The “instant” kind (aka took at least an hour) while Annisa brought some curds she had made in KL where it would take maybe 6-12 hours I think?? Anyway, since we only had 3 hours of the workshop, ours was a ‘fast mozzarella’ type.

Free Vlogging workshop!

Helloooo everyone!

Just for this 4 April, 3pm-5pm at level 5 of Scape, in The Arena, we’ll be holding a vlog workshop for FREE.

You can sign up here: https://www.milleniamotionpictures.com/vlogworkshop

Why is it free? Well.

Really.

Scape lets us rent the place for half a day a minimum and we are holding some other event in the evening leaving the afternoon unused.

So instead why not teach people who might be interested to know how to vlog at home or at events they’re at? That’s why you’re getting a free vlogging workshop!

Yeah, I’ll be there too so yeah, if you’re interested just sign up.

If you don’t have a camera, a phone works too. Basically I will teach what’s the cheapest way to do things and scale up if you’re interested to make things even more wow.

A Valentine’s Day Special

Hi, you guys might know I volunteer at Love Kuching Project.

You can donate in cash to them through money transfer, their bank account name is Love Kuching Project, the bank is DBS Bank, account number DBS Current 027-907655-0.

Or there are instructions here on the Donate Page too if you don’t know how. OR you can donate in kind by buying kitty litter or food here: https://www.polypet.com.sg/index.php?route=product/category&path=227_236

With that, this VALENTINE’S DAY, I am doing a special. Because I’m making chocolates* for self, I might as well use up all the ingredients and proper box for you**.

SO THIS IS GOING TO BE THE ANIME/MANGA CHOCOLATE EXPERIENCE.

  • For at least $150 (donation to Love Kuching Project), I will make small box of chocolates, go up to your address*** on V-day evening (14 Feb) or you let me know your timing for Wednesday, I could even try make it on lunch/afternoon depending on my schedule and hand it to you and run away. (Tier 1)
  • $250, I will do the same but slam the chocs against you for those who like tsunderes and say “I did it for the cats, not you ok! Bakaaa!” and then run away. (Tier 2)
  • For at least $500. All of the above but I demand you eat the chocolate on the spot and ask “So… so how is it? They are my rejected ones so don’t expect anything great!!!” But in reality they are the best pieces I’d make for the batch. And then run away. (Tier 3)
  • For $1000, all of the above and a secret “confession” letter hidden in box with a picture of one of the LKP cats or choice of Dawn the cat pushing my face away pic as a thank you note keepsake. And then run away. (Tier 4)
  • BONUS: I might call you senpai
  • DOUBLE BONUS: It might involve a ridiculous costume so don’t expect anything romantic.
  • Notes: YOU CAN SABOH YOUR FRIENDS OK. All in the name of CATS. You don’t like humans, nevermind but you like cats can help them like this.
  • Don’t have enough as an individual? Pile up that money with friends to get at least the first tier.

ALTERNATE ROUTE

  • If you buy kitty litter or food that didn’t hit the $150 range, you won’t get chocolates but just a digital picture of me saying thank you with Dawn the cat.

The deadline for this ‘preorder’ is 12 February so I can prepare the ingredients and box ok?

HOW to get this?

  1. Go donate to LKP and email me a picture of your donation transaction. Either it is the cash tiers or the food route, you need to have proof you did it. My email is sarah(at)seriouslysarah.com
  2. Duh, when you’re emailing the transaction, you better be fast when I reply to you because I’ll ask where/when and arrange when on 14 Feb to do so.
  3. Get ready to receive chocolates or get scolded in a tsundere way

*Chocolates = I’m not a chef so it may/may not taste awesome

**You = whoever is reading this and hopefully is in Singapore unless you wanna send me a plane ticket?

*** Location better be east or central because I’m not travelling all the way to the west.

MEANWHILE, this SATURDAY, 10 February at The Garden Slug.

You can attend Garden Slug’s ‘Valentine’s day’ dinner where there’s no extra surcharge and a performance by Us-The-Hippies.

More info here: https://www.facebook.com/events/180434589395676/permalink/181577162614752/

Be serenaded through the night with classic and contemporary favourites with a twist! Our favourite acoustic duo ‘Us The Hippies’ is back at TGS for one night only ♥

🎤 Mae’s warm timbre and 🎸 Jude’s soulful guitar will make this a night to remember… if you don’t mind a derpy joke or two peppered throughout the set. You can call this part live band, part comedy special.

🎫 Price of Admission: any 1 dish + 1 beverage (per pax) from our regular a la carte menu. Normal everyday prices, no “holiday surcharge”.

Make your reservation at http://bit.ly/slugtable or call 63460504 to book a good table ahead of others

Why? I say because TGS IS DONATING IN THAT TIER 2!!! So I’ll be there to give some chocolates. 

If you want to see some animuu nonsense in the name of cats, come by. After that I’ll run away.

Comic Fiesta 2017 at KLCC Recap!

Hi, the group went to Comic Fiesta at KLCC in 2017! It’s been a while since CF was back to KLCC so we were excited to go since it’s so easy to get there from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur by bus and stay at Trader’s hotel which is above the convention centre.

And also because I could eat Halal food like Din’s since that’s not available in Singapore.

If you wanted a tl;dr version of Comic Fiesta 2017, you can watch the video above! It was an exciting weekend that I had to split it into three posts. This one is going to be a combined 2 days of CF post.

Perspectives with Kelly Marie Tran & Norman Tan

On 26 November 2017, Apple at Orchard Road (Apple Orchard, really…) hosted a special event called Perspectives with Kelly Marie Tran & Norman Tan!

As readers of my blog would possibly know who Kelly is since a bunch of you guys are nerds like me, you would know her as Rose Tico from Star Wars in the upcoming The Last Jedi. Norman Tan is the moderator and he’s the Editor-in-Chief of Buro 24/7. He’s a really good moderator and the whole event was pretty smooth.

It started a with a screening of the trailer (some people screamed No if you listened properly because I know they were trying to avoid seeing anything until the movie appeared) and a secret behind the scenes segment starring Kelly Marie Tran. Maybe it’ll be put in the main BTS of The Last Jedi but from what we saw, it was kind of touching also? To at least know how she ended up in the role.

Trailer over, some of Singapore’s 501st marched in to stand to the side to welcome her.

Gamestart 2017! And SEA Summit…

It’s been a few weeks since Gamestart was over but this year, they held SEA SUMMIT at the Pixel Building and while it was free, you had to register for it. Mainly it had industry talks about gaming.

I went to the “last” day because it had more talks about esports and streaming. If I’m not making a game or in a company making or writing one, at least I can learn more about streaming it.

The keynote on that Friday was by Yoko Taro and he did give an insightful general theme of how characters for his games are made and the story.

A Better Florist than me

I didn’t know A Better Florist was actually a real shop! I mean, there had to be one because it does free same day deliveries of bouquets and flowers but I thought it had been in some “industrial”or some hipster space because it was founded like a startup.
It’s actually a real florist shop, of course mainly they deal with online purchases but ok, what a revelation.
Anyway, on a nice Saturday afternoon I was there to join their flower arrangement workshop. It’s usually held twice or thrice a month and you can look at their flower arrangement worskhop classes here on their Event Brite.
So you know, instead of just buying bouquets from them, you can actually learn how to make a basic one.
Firstly, we learned how to dethorn our roses and there is a “kiap-er” which helps you take out the thorns. Our instructor told us to leave a few leaves (heh) on top for aesthetic and guided us step by step to prepare the flowers, their names and the type of plant they are.
I mean, you get a bunch of flowers but you need to still pretty them up by removing leaves, thorns, stray stems and all.

This is Home Truly at Cine65

I was invited to the media briefing of ciNE65 IV at Objectifs where I learned more about this season of competitors and the winning films.

Of course I got to know who they were before the actual event half an hour later but shhh. Shhh.

It was informative because the judges were able to tell the media what went through for this year’s entries since the actual awards ceremony would celebrate the participants more.

That’s Colonel Joseph Tan, the director of Nexus by the way. (His favourite out of all the entries is Ang Ku Kueh.)

He stated the students category this year blew him away.

Jeremy Sing of SINdie also noted that with the rise of technology, there had been very interesting shots although a bit unnecessary? He recalled a scene where the shot began in the kitchen and it went out of it and then pulled out to the HDB flat.

I guess that’s pretty interesting but so extra but hey if you got access to a drone, USE IT RIGHT? Hahahah.

Other judges like Sanif Olek preferred the messaging for this year as it is more subtle compared to the first time Cine65 was out. The stories had heart. For judge, N.Mohamed Yahssir, he found that it brought him back memories of Singapore as many of the short films try to bring the nostalgic feel in their stories.
