This year marks another year with lots of travelling done for me. Well, I am mostly returning to the same places time after time. Wow, the last post on pxk was in what? March? So much has happened and we’re looking at a change in this entire website.
Anyhows, I spent my summer vacation in the one of the cosmopolitan cities in the world, Shanghai. I doubt most of us (Singaporeans) would choose to visit any state in China but I was there for a valid reason. Got a treat to watch a live concert at the very famous Mercedes Benz Arena. Not sure if you could guess which concert this is. Of course, Above & Beyond is still #1 in my heart (hehehe). Swear I am a sucker for these massive bright lights, they make me go cray.
Also, I am totally addicted to this snack which you can only get in China. My entire luggage was filled with it when coming home! New addiction/vice in my life indeed.
Short update for this post but I hope to write more in future. Stay tuned! Will be back again, stay zen for now.
Anish Kapoor / MCA, Sydney
20 Dec 2012 — 1 April 2013
Oh gosh, I know I’ve been really terrible at keeping up with the regular posts on PXK but here’s a collection of photos I took last month at the Museum of Contemporary Arts Sydney. Almost every single piece was too amazing for words. Anish Kapoor’s exhibition was just so extraordinary and I can totally understand why the partner, S, is so in love with his work. I just had to bring home a souvenir for her so that I can share the experience even though she wasn’t there with me.
March is coming to an end, and if you’re in Sydney don’t miss out on the opportunity to catch the exhibition. (;
I have so much more travel pictures to share but I’ll update them again soon. Thanks for checking back, for whoever’s still reading up PXK. Until then, xx
Time really flies! It’s coming March already ever since the new year and my schedule was packed with work and some travelling. Returned to my happy place last month to have a post birthday party with Above & Beyond, dance classes and more good food! Yes, I went back to Sydney – my land of smiles and sunshine. Except, the weather got really rainy and cold while I was there. So much for summer but it definitely didn’t dampen my spirits. The weather was so good to sleep in.
This time I went back to just chill and do a little less touristy things, Sydney pretty much remained the same to me. Well, maybe not so much for the weather and time difference due to daylight savings. Had so much good food this time round and I couldn’t stop having Asian every night. Especially Korean and Jap food, oh my god, it was SO GOOD. Also, I was lucky enough to wait less than an hour in line to dine at Jamie’s Italian!
And of course, A&B Australia tour in Sydney was too awesome for words I almost wanted to book a ticket to fly to Melbourne to catch them in the next weekend again. My love for A&B is too much for me to even explain it, heh. Mad night, mad music and one helluva experience! Will write and post more pictures in my next entry about Anish Kapoor. Yes, if you read S’ post previously I got her some souvenirs from the MCA.
Until the next one,
Interesting sightings over the last week:
Apologies for poor focusing. A pikachu-rat at Hello Shibuya Tokyo, now on at Plaza Singapura till 10th March.
Spotted in the loo at The Flying Squirrel. A new take on ‘mooning’.
Meant for feedback on kids’ homework but means a lot more to adults, for sure…

Some favourites from the recent Art Stage Singapore show:
+ A got this for me from Sydney – so much love!
I’ve been trying to ‘do something new’ every weekend - photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto’s series of scarves for Hermes is probably my next stop.
