Geylang Hari Raya Bazaar 2018!

It is said that it is least crowded on Sundays for the bazaars so I headed down to Geylang to check it out if it’s true. Since people need to work the next day, I guess?

So far, yeah! The crowd isn’t too scary but of course the food areas are jam packed but not too scary.

This year Wisma Geylang Serai opened and there are performances happening on stage on weekends during this Ramadan. You can check out their facebook here.

DBS Marina Regatta 2018 !

The day I went had ridiculous weather, sunny and then rain and back to sun again. Anyway the DBS Marina Regatta is back! And it’s held at the Promontory from around 8am to 11pm, since you’re reading this the last weekend to catch it is this 2 and 3 June!

Don’t carry too many things because there is a bag check at the entrance for the safety of all. After that, you’re through!

It starts really early because you can join the workouts by the bay in the Play Dome, it’s near the left side of the stage if you are facing it.

BUT YEAH FREE WORKOUTS!

All you have to do is bring your own mat and wear your exercise stuff, more info on the various workout schedules is on the DBS Marina Regatta website.

Meanwhile, do pick up the bay passport when you’re there.

You have to complete various actions around the area and you might win a Porsche Design HUAWEI Mate 10, Scoot flight tickets to Berlin, Maldive and Kuching or any other prizes!

It starts with Sew!

I signed up for Fashion Sewing 101 at Fashion Maker Space . If you guys are confused where it is, it’s on the second floor, next to 7-11 at 258A South Bridge Road.

Very near to Chinatown MRT station.

Alright, why Fashion Sewing 101? Because I figured I should start from the very basics even though I have done cosplays and whatnot like woah. Those are like… hack and dash. It works cause it works but this time I want to learn properly.

So Fashion Sewing 101 it is!

I was early so I got to choose my own seat. I got a little pack of informative stuff of where to buy fabric and haberdashery plus a diagram of sewing machine parts plus a piece of fabric to practice on.

This was totally for a beginner but I did learn things! Such as tension and what the zig zag stuff means and how to get the curves in stitching you want etc.

On my right was also samples of the various workshops/classes they hold.

It’s a fairly spacious space and there was another class going on, on the other side too.

This is me “tracing” the lines of what to do. You can see me experimenting after the instructor (Isabelle) told us how to use the different settings and what each one is needed for different materials.

I was legitly like “AaAAaaAAHhh?” but quietly in my mind.

Because I could technically do embroidery with my machine or even do finer sewing with the machine I have at home?!

In any case, it was a pleasant introduction to sewing whether if you are truly a super beginner or someone who needs brushing up in sewing.

I want to go to Fashion Sewing 102 now… Ah…

You can check out their Facebook here or their website and instagram.

It’s Lazada’s 6th Birthday!

It’s Lazada’s 6th Birthday and they have a present for you!

Their birthday festival sale starts on 24 April until 26 April 2018.

Ok, what’s the details? Since it’s their birthday, there’s going to be discounts of up to 90% off, more than 600 flash deals and… up to $120 vouchers?!

In the previous birthday deals, I can’t remember they had that!

OOOH AND there’s SURPRISE BOXES again! It’ll cost $29 but it’s worth around $100.

And ok, this is the year of huat aka 2018 so we might want to look nicer so there’s only 4 exclusive premium beauty boxes worth $100 but going at $50.

It’s probably some atas brand and all.

I don’t know but what I can tell you is their gaming section surprise box!!

Here’s what I got as a preview for the celebration, the Leapfrog Surprise Box!

Wheeeee!

So what’s in it for 2018?

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.

Kayak 1 Star – Getto!

Ok.

I saw this post by Ministry of Adventure last month during those flash floods. The copy was loltastic, it was this:

Is urban kayaking something you always want to try?
Wanna kayak alongside stalled vehicles and people standing on benches at the bus stop?

Now here’s the chance for you! We don’t know when will the next chance come, but we will be prepared when the next flash flood is here!

When?
The next heavy downpour

How to join?
Throw away everything you are doing and race to the flooding area the next time it rains. People stuck in their car or bus stop are welcome to join in the fun. Kayaks not included.

Where?
East side of Singapore

What if I don’t have a kayak?
Box, container, bathtub or anything that fits you will do too. Swimmers are also welcome.

Is it suitable for kids?
Kids are advised to stay in school or home. The frustration of the working crowds stuck by the flood can be dangerous.

What should I bring?
A change of working clothes so you may also kayak to work

How much is it?
It is FREE! You may even earn some bucks by kayaking people to their workplace!

See also our hiking along MRT track during train breakdown event which happens every month on our Facebook page!

Loltastic but I then went “Oh?? Ministry of… ADVENTURE?” and if you have stuck around my blog long enough, you’d know I like adventure. AND OHHHHH. OHHHHHH THIS IS A GROUP that actually teaches you skills that I like in my list of Lara Croft checklist. (It’s somewhere, I forgot where but it’s there anyway.)

And their next event was a real event called 1 star kayaking certification.

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.

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