Into the swirling memory bowl – Mid Oct 2011

Bonsoir!

Just some quick updates about my personal life, which I have not done so for quite some time now, as I have been mostly updating on the fashionable events I’ve attend.

I am very thankful to God for completing and successfully submitting Finance assessment paper this morning. Am actually suffering from the fatigue of staying up late and waking up early to complete the assignment due to bad time management and ill-discipline from being distracted by internet (sigh)…

I have just completed 2 months worth of french elementary 1 course, held every tuesday and thursday nights! In a quick recap, I am now able to pronounce in french A-Z, 1-100, introduce myself, mastered a limited but increasing list of vocabulary such as countries, occupations and subjects. I am struggling with remembering feminine prefix – la and masculine prefix – le. I hope to be more acquainted with the french culture to inspire and motivate my learning. I also hope that I will soon be able to speak and think comfortably in french! A faraway dream as of now, but definitely a great ambition!

School work is piling up like a huge mountain as submissions and presentations are all nearing. Scheduling really helps put things in perspective and helps with prioritization. Was initially quite worried last weekend about not being to finish work but after scheduling, there was actually sufficient time. But turns out, our tutors have postponed 1 submission and 1 presentation. I feel sad that our misery is prolonged (not actually sure if we will put in more effort, but now there is no reason not to do better.) but on the bright side, I am relieved and should be happy for the extra time to do things even better, more time for details. 😉

Time is really flying by like crazy all of a sudden. It’s October and soon the year will be over. @-@ I am grateful because I’ve been superbly (and happy to be) busy with many activities with friends and communities. Other than school, church, attending events with lovely friends and learning French, I am also involved with Transmission Lab 2011-2012 hosted by Phunk Studio.

A week ago I attended a fashion show showcasing Japanese brands Rosebullet, ICB by Onward fashion group. I won the tickets and I asked Gilda, fashion designer and genius behind the homegrown(but with American design background and Japanese quirky sensibilities) label Revasseur to attend with me. I will do a proper introduction about Gilda and Revasseur in a future post. I am super happy and honoured that she agreed to collaborate with me to create an artwork under Trans. Lab program. I am very excited to discuss more with her about our collaboration once school’s out. 🙂

And last night saw the opening of 100 Friends 100 Artists 100 Inspiration exhibition held at TCC @ Clarke Quay (near Raffles Place Mrt). The exhibition is managed by Art-management. It’s a celebration of Phunk Studio as they invite 100 friends to create 100 artworks – each piece representing something, someone that inspires them. Subject varies from animals to families, lovers, artists and for myself, a Singaporean fashion visionary Tjin Lee. 🙂

Each artwork will be sold at $199 per piece. $99 will go to funding Transmission Lab 2012 exhibition which will be held next February, showcasing the artworks of up and coming creative Singapore talents (including Gilda and myself). I am beyond honoured and often catch myself smiling silly (and feeling inadequate) to know that I am in such talented company. I am very humbled and I do hope to make a positive contribution and positive impact to the local arts and design community. 🙂

As this is a short recap, I will update more photos for Onward fashion show and 100 Friends exhibition another time, soon. So look out for updates. 😉

Lastly I am going for my first internship interview tomorrow and I really hope all things go well and that I get the position. Will update more about it if I get it. *Excited*

Au Revoir~!
