Busy Saturday of a tai-tai

Had an enjoyable Saturday with activities I will be doing when I'm a full time tai-tai - high tea and visiting an arts exhibition. =)

Attended Yvonne's ROM party at Old School. Nice, nostalgic place- plain old school lor. It was a simple, fuss-free event for the couple. ROM ceremony , cocktail, simple finger food served, retro/ jazz music in the background, friends catching up, photo-taking. It was definitely more relaxing for everybody....Nice.

Had to walk down the longest flight of stairs in order to reach The Cathay at the foot of Mt Sophia, and that was supposed to be a short-cut. I supposed they made it a sheltered stairway in view of wet weather but don't feel good walking in that descending tunnel- claustrophopic.

Indulged in English-style high tea buffet at Hyatt in the afternoon. Love the scones! Though selection was not wide, i definitely stuffed myself full - taking care of both lunch and dinner at the same time. Felt that I was too greedy after that.

Went for some "exercise" after that, at the Singapore Biennale held at the City Hall. Interesting exhibits but there were some a lot of video clips that were super s-l-o-w and I didn't understand what was going on -too arty. But for S$10 entrance fee, you could well get your money's worth if you went through all the exhibits and sat through ALL the videos/movies even. You can spend a whole day in there definitely.

It's a bird's eye view of Singapore. Or at least my photo shows more of the South and East of SG. The white parts are all stickers with comments by people who attended the exhibition. It was all fun searching for where our homes and schools are and also reading the silly but innovative stuff people wrote.

Alien invasion? This cleverly makes use of the Supreme Court as a backdrop. Looks like an UFO rite?
