“A picture says a thousand words; blog shops provide a platform to list all their items at one glance. Pictorial representation works so much better as it comes along with styling tips; and here’s my a list of my favourite blog shops.” – MFP Blogger Jacelyn Phang

Visited The Local People Art Flea to support local designers and entrepreneurs last Friday and was pleasantly surprised by the huge turnout for the event! Tanjong Pagar Railway track was massively packed from the entrance and I could barely moved from stalls to stalls inside.
As someone who has always been interested in entrepreneurial activities, I am really happy to see Singaporeans supporting local businesses. I considered myself extremely blessed to have been able to be on the prestigious NUS Overseas College (NOC) program where I had the opportunity to study in Fudan University and interned in a start up company of my choice in Shanghai for a year. The overseas and internship experience in a start-up was enriching and life-changing. It changed my perspective of life, and I am so glad I get to live my entrepreneurial dreams now that I am managing Le Queenz too! #supportlocal
Anyway, the flea had many handmade items and if you would like unique accessories, quirky items and indie products, you will definitely love the flea! More importantly, you will also get to support local entrepreneurs with dreams together with the courage to pursue their dreams 🙂 To find out more about the local people’s upcoming flea, follow them on @thelocalpeoplesg on IG or follow their Facebook account here.

Outfit of the day is my first denim overalls from PurPur that is so casual and chic. For the month of March, they are also having a 10% storewide discount + additional 10% off if you purchase a minimum of 2 pieces; so shop away!
ilight marina bay is Asia’s leading sustainable light art festival; happening from 4 -27 March (admission is completely free), you can expect to see kaleidoscopic display of light installations and be serenaded by live music performances along marina bay.
This is the forth edition of the light art festival, but my very first visit. I started my walk from Marina Bay Sands, and am pleasantly surprised by the number of people I see at the pop up stalls of Pasar Bella and how happening the area is! You can expect to see flea market vendors at the Marina Waterfront Bazaar, musical acts at the festival stage and Uncle Ringo’s carnival games! There’s basically something to see and play for people of all ages to enjoy.
For a person who loves taking photo, there are a couple of places for you to grab images. and this is my favorite photo of the night!
I had a lot of fun looking at the different installations while keeping my tummy happy by getting food options from pop-up store of Haagen Dazs and food truck like Old Chang Kee. P.S. this is usually how I look because I love stuffing my face silly with food!
Lastly, I really like that the participating artists make use of recyclable materials and adopted energy-efficient lighting technology for some of their installations. As Leonardo DiCarprio said, “Let’s not take this planet for granted”, so let us collectively actively promote and remind each other to practice an environmentally responsible behavior for a sustainable future.
The start of the year has been nothing but grey and sadness for me. For everyone who’s slightly close to me, they would have known how much I love my baby maltese (Mickey). Unfortunately, he has passed on just before Chinese New Year and that is why I haven’t been active here.

If you didn’t catch Cinderella: A Fairly True Story, you really haven’t missed out.
Told from the point of a view of a reporter (the narrator of the story), Cinderella: A Fairly True Story features a great cast of talents singing, acting and dancing beautifully by the huge RWS Theatre stage. This production from Belgium directed by Karina Mertens features the classical Cinderella fairytale, with the focus on Cinderella’s relationship to her Mother (Deborah de Ridder).
I enjoyed myself immensely whenever the nanny of the prince (Wanda Joosten) and the Stepmother (Sara de Smedt) sang. Their energy was contagious and it was the most enjoyable highlights of the show for me.
You also get surprises in between the show like when Cinderella’s dress turned from rags to a beautiful blue gown and also when the pumpkin turned into a shiny golden carriage!
I was expecting an enchanting and magical performance, but to be frank, I was fairly disappointed at many points of the production. Firstly, the prince (Caleb Vines) was less charming and tall as I would like him to be. I would think he’s more cute than suave. Which is a total letdown for a diehard disney fan when I saw him. He’s also a nanny-boy by the way.
I wished that Cinderella (Charlotte Campion) had sang more than she did in the production too. She has a crystal clear voice that lit up the whole theatre whenever she sang. But there were little of her dialogues and singing.
Featuring a mix of original music and popular radio hits (like “I Gotta Feeling”, “Everything I Do, I Do It For You”), I didn’t like the fusion of songs played.
Overall, they were a few light hearted moments, good comic actic and great singing, but I think the show is more catered for kids than for adults (i.e. more gimmicks that real solid content). Not complaining because it is decently worth its price; I got the cheapest ticket for only $58.50 (after a 25% discount) per pax and the Resort World Theatre is pretty comfortable (you can get relatively near the stage even with the cheapest ticket price category!).
P.S. The show is not worth recommending so my review came in so late.
