Night Safari- "Art. Seen&Herd" x Adverts- SundayBest, OOTD

HELLOOOOOOOO!!!
Im back with another post about my busy busy BUSY  schedule.
I guess everyone knows that i lead a hectic lifestyle, going to school, doing major projects, attending events, modeling... even to the extend of falling sick and getting recovered asap so that i can continue leading my life. But i STRESS that i LOVEEEEEEEE it!
I guess thats what's making everything seem so much more worth it :)

I do wish that i have some more time alone with Fai or with my family though...

Anyway!!! Here's what happened yesterday.

5th June 2013
9am-3pm
I was talking to Fai about how much more you learn from working compared to going to school. Yes we all know that Science and Math are important but really, you learn how to be who you ought to be when you start growing up, earning money and paying your own bills.

Things like these, they can't teach you in school. And you are your own teachers cause learning it is your own choice and responsibility. For me, I never thought the day would come that i would actually be earning my own money just so that i can buy things for myself and for my love ones. And i never thought that i would ever have to pay for my own meals, and pay for my own bills... 
Its actually really scary.

And i guess, you'll never know the true meaning of life until you get to this stage Fai and I are at. But when you do, don't be afraid cause everyone has to go through it. Just perserve and be optimistic. Things are only gonna get better if you believe that you can do it!

Oh boy... how did i start rambling away about that? HAHAHA
What i wanted to say is that, that is the reason why i work so hard.
I don't wanna put any more pressure on my parents and i guess i just like the fact that everything i do and enjoy, comes straight out from my own pocket. Its my way of helping around at home:)

AND KIDS! I'm not telling you to quit school and work. 
Cause if you're living in Singapore, nothing matters more then that paper that qualifies you for things later on in life. You can be a really hardworking or creative person, but if you ain't got the qualifications written down in black and white, you ain't gonna go far...
SO YUP. That's why at the end of the day, i am still in school :)

Yesterday in school wearing my NY crop tee sponsored by http://www.unestab.com/

With Clareeeeee <3
P.s. we don't usually dress down this much on a usual school day so DON'T JUDGE!!! hahaha
Being in Retail and Visual Merchandising means working like an architect some times, which means drilling and cutting woods and stuffs into pieces. 
Therefore, you can't expect us to be all dressed up doing all that right?  
.

8:00PM
At the strike of 3pm, i left school and headed off for a shoot!!! 
And straight after at about 5pm, 
I was off to GushCloud's office to get ready for the big event of the day. I actually took a quick shower at the office first. hehehe. Didn't wanna attend an event feeling all sticky and "smelly".

WE WERE OFF TO NIGHT SAFARI!!!
And as usual, I fell asleep in the car on the way there. I am always taking short naps anywhere and everywhere i can whenever i have the opportunity to. 
Thats why there's so many pictures of me sleeping in class!!!
(its my trick. its kinda like taking your heels off whenever you can so that your feet won't hurt so much)

And its an outfit change for me when i headed to Night Safari!
Wearing this beautiful top sponsored by http://www.bagofbones.sg/ <3
Now here's why we were invited to Night Safari.
Night Safari has collaborated with the local art scene to spread an important message:
STOP ANIMAL POACHING
There are many extinct animals in the world and if we don't conserve and save what we are left with now, our kids in future aren't gonna know what an Elephant or Rhino is. 
Much like how we have no clue if the DoDo Bird really exists at all!!

We all know that certain animals are being killed for their body parts to make "tonics" or "medication".
I have no idea how this shit came about, but REALLY?!?!
How about cutting out your own liver to make soup for others to drink? How would you feel?

I am sorry but I am an animal lover. And i do donate money to PETA every month to support their research team. And therefore, when it comes to hurting animals, especially for the sake of pleasuring humans, i think it is ridiculous and should be stopped in any way possible.

I was really excited for this event cause...
1) I love art (coincidentally, i was blogging about this in my previous post)
2) I love animals

So this was such a fulfilling event for me to attend and i enjoyed EVERY bit of it.
It was a great way to end my hectic day.

No events would be the same without you :)
I love bringing Fai along with me for anything and everything.
Its a great way for us to learn more about each other and we get to experience a lot of things together too! So thank you GushCloud for letting him leave work earlier to come with me! hehehehe
heheheh! This is why we are a couple. Cause we are best friends too. 
And im loving my new Converse kicks!
With Sheena (our manager), Roseanne and Shine!! Asyiha missing.
Lots of people couldn't make it :(
And Carmen(manager) a.k.a A CAT. hehehehee
I just love Shine being there all the time. She's like my mother. hahaha
Always taking care of me! I would always throw my bag on the floor to pose for a pic or to take some pics and she would scold me and carry it for me. hehehe SO SWEET <3
Not long after, Asyiha came too!! Looking gorgeous as ever! 
And guess what.... we both have the dress that she is wearing! hahaha just that mine is in white.
Perks of being blogshop models ;)
And the event commence...
Meeting the 4 artists featured in this Art Seen & Herd exhibit.
From left to right: ClogTwo, Mindflyer, SKL0, The Killer Gerbil.
Each of amazing local artists have created art pieces which speak volumes of conserving the animals who are threatened of their habitats and livelihoods.
Let's start with ClogTwo (Eman Jeman)! He is an Illustrator, Graffiti Practitioner and Video Designer. He creates works of art on various mediums from walls, canvases to customized vinyl toys. 
You can view his works here -----> http://www.clogtwo.com/
His idea of educating this campaign to the public is through illustrating an imagery of a game cartridge.
He mentioned that by doing so, it will speak better to youths of today since we used to play Gameboys and stuff. And it sure did get a lot of "oohs" and "arhhs" when he explained.
Such amazing, precise and neat work.
The Killer Gerbil (Luthfi Mustafah) was up to show us his piece of art next!
This man needs no introduction. Go on and type in "The Killer Gerbil" on google and search images and you'll see a very familiar character :) 
More of his works here ---> http://www.thekillergerbil.com/

I am sure that everyone, especially kids will LOVE his piece. Its really interactive and it tells a story.
Now, everyone loves to be a part of something and everyone loves stories right?

Allow me to share what he shared with us.
This is an Elephant. A healthy, peaceful one.
As you turn the blinds, a message appears....
And as you go on...
the Elephant is gone too..
Elephants are hunted for their tusks. I remember reading a composition essay back in secondary school about this. Their tusks are hunted to make billiards balls, piano keys, identification chops and many other items for human enjoyment. There is a huge decrease in the number of these majestic mammals on earth now because of this. And though ivory hunting is banned, poaching still do continues :(

Please don't take away the elephants... they're amazing smart creatures and you will realize that if you see them up close like what we saw yesterday at The Night Safari.

Next, SKL0 (Samantha Lo) showed us her masterpiece! 
She is a graphic designer and a visual artist inspired by her daily observations and research on the sociopolitical climate. I honestly think what she did that made headlines is a amazing. I really do. If someone can translate her opinions so strongly with such courage, she is definitely someone to look out for. Such boldness don't come often here in timid SG. 
(And if you have no clue what i'm talking about, she is Sticker Lady)
Here's whats her piece is about.
So basically, you see two beautiful Tigers playing with each other on the front of the panel.
She is kinda depicting how a usual enclosure looks like. With the animal's description at the bottom.
But here's what actually going on behind the scenes. This is what she depicted on the back of the panel.
It shows a duty roaster and schedules of who's next to take on a shift of being a Tiger. 
Her message basically means that if we do not conserve the animals, soon after, humans would have to put on a costume and pretend to be animals. 
Last but not least, Mindflyer(Michael) showed us what he got! He is an illustrator and an artist and does works that are quirky,surreal, really retro sci-fi and all of which are really utopian.
I love it when artists have their own unique branding image. Michael leaves this marks behind on this piece really well by showcasing his "xiaofeiren" very well.
Learn more about him and Organisation of Illustrators Council (OIC) at
Michael explained that he was inspired by the depletion of the Asian Black Bear.
These bears are captured and locked up in cages way too small for their body causing them to feel stress and agitated. By spreading the message of animal cruelty around, these bears can be free!
(there is also another side of this art piece on the back of this panel. Sadly, it was destroyed by the rain)
Artists gathered to open the graffiti panel. Open to anyone who wishes to leave their marks on it to show support towards stopping animal cruelty and poaching. 
Everyone was so shy to take the first step to lay their hands on a spray can. 
Asyiha really wanted to try so she was one of the first to try. hahaha
Next, Fai gave it a go and left a huge "GC" mark behind. 
Spray painting really isn't as easy as it looks. It wasn't my first time doing it obviously because i do this tons of time in school but i still sucked at it nonetheless. 
I tried my best not to spray too much paint cause it would drip down the panel like blood stains.
Now, we wouldn't want an art piece that looks bad compared to all the professional ones around right? hehehe. But.... it looks bad in the end anyway.
Us bloggers having so much fun! hahaha
It was then time to take a ride on the tram!!!
But before that, i started craving for Ben&Jerry's. I said it out loud and didn't expect anything.
A few minutes later, Fai came back to me with a cup of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough in his hands and my heart melted. So sweet and so much initiative. Sighhh my Loverboy :)
HAHA a shot of us being REALLY excited for the ride!!
CAUGHT FAI DOING THE AOKI JUMP!
It was great being back at The Night Safari again. The last time i came, i was just a kid and couldn't appreciate just sitting and listening to the guide on the tram. This time, i really learnt how to appreciate the animals at the enclosures and it just made me wanna do more for the endangered animals out there.
They are so beautiful and it would be so sad if i won't be able to show my kids in future how any particular animal look like. 

Please spread the message and create awareness that buying tonics and stuffs that contains animal body parts is a form of animal cruelty. It is banned in most countries. Therefore, if you do consume animal parts, it is illegal and morally wrong. The more we stop consuming them, poachers won't have to keep illegally hunting the animals, and these creatures will be saved.

After the tram ride, we visited the gift shop for a bit and cam-whored. As usual. hehehe
I wanna thank GushCloud for inviting me down to Art Seen & Herd.
And I wanna also thank Night Safari for organizing this huge meaningful event.
I really hope i managed to help create awareness to all you readers out there.
Spread the message! Nothing is more powerful then love. Do what is right.

  2. I get $20 for a 20 minute survey!

    Guess what? This is exactly what large companies are paying me for. They need to know what their customer needs and wants. So big companies pay millions of dollars each month to the average person. In return, the average person, myself included, answers some questions and gives them their opinion.
