Of Recent Outings!

Had a really loooong & tiring week being away on a work trip, and came back yesterday slightly strung up knowing it is just the beginning of the crazy two months ahead for Love, Bonito. But going through the designs, planning the coming collections, and getting awesome shots this morning for our Christmas catalogue even though I had to drag myself up at 8A.M., I know the hard work will eventually pay off. Doesn't matter if weekends are burnt or holidays are missed, as long as our customers get super smashing stuff for the coming festivities, it's all worth the while :)

Anyhoots, here are some overdue pictures from the recent outings before the trip! Food & fun really ought to be synonyms ;)

My pleasure joining Bea & Brad on their quest to find the best dim sum in Singapore!

Seeing them hard at work, I had to whip out camera too ;) The ambience for Crystal Jade's Golden Palace (Paragon) is great, but we still prefer the dim sum from Taste Paradise & Royal China!

Yay and some awesome photos from Brad; love his boots!

Paid a visit to the Farmer's Market at Loewen Gardens last Saturday to support my super-baker-of-a-friend, Mand. And Wyna, owner of newly launched So prouda them both :D

The Khoo sisters :) Pals since babies <3

Fab stuff at the Farmer's Market! It opens almost every other Saturday and is organized by the wonderful people from The Pantry. The Pantry serves up a really good breakfast and apparently has the 'best quiche in town'! They also offer cooking classes. For more info, click here

A mini excursion with Fred & Kimmykimkim! We caught a documentary at the Omni-Theatre and had some time to kill before dinner, so we explored the Science Centre too. Not very fun now that we're no longer knowledge-hungry kids. Think I had more kick picking up toys from the store heh ;)

Then we met the rest for Gege's birthday surprise :) The desserts at Max Brenner were extremely disappointing save for the Chocolate Souffle which was overflowing with gooey melted chocolate! However, it's an off-the-menu item and if I'm not wrong, it's only a Christmas special.

Food tasting with Jie & Rach for our upcoming Christmas Luncheon and then to the Affordable Art Fair. Loved the fair 'cept that the pieces Fred&I wanted to purchase from a UK gallery were sold by the time we confirmed them :( Anyway, about our luncheon, we've sent the invites and we're counting down to the 10th! So thrilled to know that those attending will be treated to a delectable 3-course meal & they'll also be able to purchase some really fabulous pieces from our Christmas Collections :D

And lastly, here's a sneak pic from our shoot this morning!

Happy rainy Saturday and have a splendid weekend y'all x

38 kisses:

Hi Anisha, I use photoshop to create collages :)

Vel said... [Reply to comment]

Hey Joyce, if you're talking about wifi for mobile phones, I'm not very sure. I was on 3G there and I didn't have any problems with the connections :)

Vel said... [Reply to comment]

Whoops, my bad! Thank you for the info :)

Vel said... [Reply to comment]

Hi babe, I got them from Topshop! :) Not sure if they retail in SG cos I bought them in London.

Vel said... [Reply to comment]

hi, thank you! :)
I got the top from Korea, shorts from Warehouse & shoes from Topshop for the first outfit. The sequined top is from Ms Selfridge and the necklace's from China :)

Vel said... [Reply to comment]

Hi J, the breakout's not clear in the photos cos they're all on the side of my cheeks :( anyway, I'm not sure if any doctor will prescribe it but you can ask a GP and see if he thinks it's suitable for your skin? I'd suggest going to a dermatologist though.
As for the smudging, it does happen whenever I wear glasses but I don't really pay much attention to it cos the glasses cover it anyway :)

Vel said... [Reply to comment]

Hi Leanne, I think it's copper brown with jet black highlights!

Vel said... [Reply to comment]

Hello! No but we do have a similar piece coming up :D

Vel said... [Reply to comment]

Hi x, the top from Korea and the beaded top from Ms Selfridge :)

Vel said... [Reply to comment]

Hello! I get my hair cut with Gary at Salon Vim. He usually personalizes our haircuts so I'm not very sure what this haircut's called babe.. But yes, it's disconnected so I do look like I have a bob sometimes :)
