Heh finally the weekends are here! Currently at my classmate's place tgth with afew other classmates practicing for our practical exam next week. Cooking our own dinner. Yknow what's the best thing having a bunch of people who love & have a flare for cooking? Their're open to trying new things, & the food prepared always taste awesome! (:
Poached Pear with Red Wine. Learned abt fruits in class today. The above pic is my plating for this dish. I know, heart agn! Sorry la. My creativity for culinary is very limited. Gotta learn alot from others.
The Pear's supposed to be a house, & the heartshape cut through it is a window. The Mascropone cream shaped into clouds & the red wine sauce added as a final touch. C'mon give me some slack. It's cute at least right???? HAHA! My classmates kept disturbing me say my plating always so kiddish ): Lol.
Mash Potato. Shaped it into a heart. HAHA. Forgive me for my very kiddish plating.
The various group's plating.
Lamb Chops for lunch last week as my lesson tt day was abt Meat.
Scallops! Had my Seafood lesson last week. Tt was one of the best lunch ever as we had a variety of seadfood dishes (((:
This wld be now as 2 of my friends are currently in the kitchen whipping up a delicious dinner! Can't wait!! I'm famished!

"Staring at the mess i made,
As you turned, you take your heart & walked away."
Lunch today was VEGETABLES!! -.- Not saying i dislike the taste of veg, in fact, i love veg! Just tt the choice of veg cooked today was nt my fav. Eggplants & Capsicums... EWWW! Had a really hard time forcing it down my throat. Lol.
Anyway, here's the update on The Night Festival. It started from 7pm-2am. It was really crowded & the events were held at several museums/places ard City Hall & Dhouby Gaut. I love the way they displayed the different kinds of art work. It was phenomenal! I enjoyed myself ttm!! Ridzuan accompanied me cause no one else was free on tt day. Lest i'd hv to go on my own. Here are the pictures!! You'll get a clearer pic of what i'm talking abt (:
P.S. I only managed to cover a few museums & the art work as there wasn't enough time to patronize every single event.
First Stop, SAM! The slowest SMS center. LOL. It was really cool though. Anyone could sms a given no. & your message will be displayed widely to the public.
The Abusement Park. The queue was so friggin long i didn't want to waste my time joining in the line. You must be wondering what on earth is an ABUSEMENT & why not an AMUSEMENT.
Cause they literally showcase ABUSEMENT. Hahaha. Here's a pic of a guy "chopping off" someone's head.
The various Abusement stalls inside- Slave Trader & Teacher's Pet.
2nd level of SAM. Showcase of various short clips combined tgth.
Another showcase of shortclips by various directors.
Next stop, the Learning Gallery.
Kick Ass Rabbit! LOL. Damn cute!!
The Movie Gallery. Super vintage collection of tix & pics of cinemas.
B&W television during the olden days.
The Polaroid Gallery of modern movie theaters.
Modern- Fairfield Methodist Church
Vintage. Didn't really seem to chng much though.
Next stop, off to the Substation.
Some painting of Chinese Characters? I'm sorry i can't rmbr. Haha. I couldn't tell what the paintings meant for each Chinese Character. Only know tt after painting, they would seal it in a plastic bag for some unknown reason.
Found my Surname! ((:
Outside Substation- Graffiti.
Another Graffitti wall for the public to "vandalize". Lol.
Some band performing inside the room & those who can't go in stood at the back alley to watch through tt tiny opening. LOL. Super loud-rock-screamo music.
I laughed when i saw this. LOL. Who wld waste $3 on sucha lame poster??!
Wld you purchase this???! I knw i won't. Lol.
Some guy (whom i assume is part of the event), doing some ritual which freaked me out. He acted like he was mad esp when he had a chopper in his hands & he kept scraping it against the road till you can literally see sparks flying out.
Next, Peranakan Museum. Which happens to be beside The Substation.
Good to know more abt my own kind :DDD
A short video on the history of Peranakans.
Gallery of several Peranakans & their idea of 'What a true Peranakan is'.
Dick Lee also a Peranakan!
My mum made one of these shoes before!! It takes a hell lot of patience man. Not an easy task.
You gotta sew the tiny beads onto a canvas sheet before securing it onto the shoe. It is really tedious & if you do not hv good eyesight, good luck to you man.
They even allowed you to touch the artwork, which is super rare! LOL.
Love the flowery pattern of the glasswares.
Even the insides are decorated!
Showcase of 'The Gossips of an Peranakan lady'. You could hear a lady gossiping when you pick up the phone. Haha pretty cool.
The Kingdom of Ayohdhya Gallery Gallery.
More graffitti. Super cool. Look at the drawing!
The Community Mural Proj.
Outside the National Musuem of S'pore- The Paraboles 2.0! This was the highlight of the night! Started at 12am.
6 Giant satellite dishes stretching out to the sky, absorbing the sound of space & cosmic data, ignoring all activities on Earth. Under each satellite, faint abstract sounds of the music of the stars, solar winds & radio waves are all being mixed tgth.
The fun begun after 5 mins of nothing but the sound of radio waves which bored me & js when i was abt to leave, this came up. Followed by several other designs.
My fav of the lot!
Look like contacts right? Lol.
Look at the massive crowd!
This is what it looks like when the Satellite dish's lights are being switched off. Pretty dark.
Then it came up agn. At this point, Ridzuan was pestering me to go cause he was bored until he started laughing -.- He said the "fishes" looks like sperms -.- Plus the "fishes" were chasing an egg. LOL.
A dancer dancing infront of one of the Satellite dishes where at one part they showcased her dancing onto the Satellite dish as a shadow dance. Really cool! Each satellite dish had a musician & the music was friggin good!
Can you see the dancer in the Red circle i drew?
The finale of the performance, the dancer was dancing on a ball tt was raised high up right in front of the satellite dish whilst it was moving back & forth repeatedly! Tt was damn cool ttm! Have no idea how she did it man.
Showcase of Muay Thai.
Another Graffiti painting. There were several Graffiti located almost at every museum.
Another one. LOL.
Hop Scotch! Childhood game.
They had various boards to indicate the event & timing. The organisation's really good to provide such information when they alr gave everyone a notebook on the events & a fan cause it was friggin hot!
Tt's all! Hope you managed to get a glimpse of what happened at The Night Festival!
