Raffles Design Institute X OC

Orchard Central is one of the latest malls to hit Singapore's shopping belt. Yesterday we visited it again to view the graduation showcase by RDI, one of Singapore's leading design school. Spread over areas on L2, 4 and 5, the exhibition displayed works by the Advanced Diploma graduates in various fields of design, ranging from fashion to interactive media design.

Some really creative pieces of jewellery design were on display. I love the concept of gears fused in jewellery. The graphic design campaigns featured some extensive marketing and design research, and the variety of work was quite impressive.
The most eye-catching one was a campaign regarding chinese funeral and incense burning. The concept was creative and different. We also managed to collect quite a few freebies like a badge and a fresh apple!

Star of wonder, star of night

It's definitely been a while since our previous blogpost. These hols saw a whirlwind of activities for us - from our Overseas Community Involvement Project in Vietnam to intensive dance practices as we gear up for a dance competition in Barcelona next April. And before we knew it Christmas is arriving!

Malls have sprung up here in Singapore and crowds are high on the festive mood, hinting the end of recession and a hopeful year to come. To most of us, the Christmas season might well be a season of partying and pampering ourselves with the hottest holiday trends -- sequins and all things bling. To some of us, Christmas is a season of thanksgiving and spending time with our families. However to me, be it giving or receiving, the true meaning of Christmas is about celebrating the wonders of God's love, the birth of Jesus Christ and sharing this good news with others. So this post is not about fashion, because right now my mind is set on the beautiful lyrics of Christmas carols, and that joy that I feel beyond racks of holiday partywear and beyond presents beneath that christmas tree.

Have a blessed Christmas!
