In which I casually try not to bleed over things

The Little Happy Shop is a little shop of happiness at Holland Village Shopping Mall. With the new station open, it was easy to get there. Well, relatively easy cause it was raining like heck when we were there.





Plus me of course. We were going to attend a rubber stamp making workshop! This is apparently a super popular workshop since the slots get filled fast since it is freaking fun and that really, it’s called The Little Happy Shop, it isn’t that big.

Nanowrimo TGIO Party & The Steampowered Globe book launch!

Yes! Spread the word on our Nanowrimo Thank Goodness It’s Over party and our steampunk book launch! Come along if you’re interested in Nanowrimo (even though it’s ended by then) or if you’ve tried to do it an either succeeded/failed/gone meh and will try another time. You can bring your friends too in case you feel alone but from the previous parties, pretty much everyone become pals with each other very quickly.

On our steampunk anthology book launch, it is titled The Steampowered Globe and available for just $15 at the event!

It’s usually $18++ at Kino and other stores cause they’ll add in GST. Anyway, the first anthology of steampunk short stories by Two Trees and I could probably guess, the first in Singapore too since I have never seen another one like this before.

Bring even more friends and support this book by buying it cause the bulk of the writers are Nanowrimo-ers too!

The stories:

Ascension by Leow Hui Min Annabeth

No, They Dream Of Mechanical Hearts by Claire Cheong

Morrow’s Knight by Viki Chua

Colours by Yuen Xiang Hao

The Morning Glory Incident by Mint Kang

Help! Same Angler Fish’s Been Gawking for Eight Minutes! by Ng Kum Hoon

Captain Bells and the Sovereign State of Discordia by JY Yang

So yes, anyone is free to come. If you know people who like writing or reading, double plus if they like steampunk, they should come. ALSO, the dresscode will be steampunk. Or at least, that is encouraged.

You can wear whatever you want, usually when visiting a library if you don’t have any steampunk attire but really, when else besides conventions can you wear it?

Sarah Does Singapore – Season 3 Finale

Woah. Interestingly after the official episodes for season 3 are over, we had some more adventures that were really fun and also arty. I’m going to put that in Random Encounters. Pluuuus, there’s something that I’m going to be posting about to after this series. So while the episodes for Sarah Does Singapore is over for season 3, heh heh heh, watch out for more ridiculous things. Something else is taking over for Mondays. Still adventure but a lot more weird things.

And now the play list!

SDS 3.25 – Trogdor (aka The Singapore Writers Festival affair)

Jo and I got invited to the opening of the Singapore Writers Festival. Since it was evening and we could make it, well, we decided to go! As we approached the tent, we glimpsed Dave Chua of Gone Case but ALAS, he disappeared as we entered for that evening was also the opening of an exhibition by Sonny Liew elsewhere which I didn’t know and also the launch of the Gone Case 2, the graphic novel.

NO MATTER, so we bust into the tent like the writers we are.

Which is to say we pushed opened the doors and pretty much walked in after saying our names at the sign in area.
