I’m actually really insecure about my back (bc bacne), but the day this photo was taken it was pretty mild! Sometimes you just have to embrace your insecurities, put on a nice dress and conquer your day ✨ #womenofstyletheory
Love-hate relationship with pink 💞 because I sometimes love pink too much..and sometimes I don’t like pink at all 🤷🏻♀️
Do you sometimes face something like this too?
Btw don’t hate me for posting pictures with these flowers 🌷☺️
Trying out lens ball for the first time.
I would say not having a legit holder got me to think out of the box. I used a sake bottle which was nicely illuminated by the warm light in my room.

The former house of Tan Teng Niah has been deemed the most colourful house in Singapore, don’t you agree?!
It was an accidental visit to this place when we were running an errand around this area and found out Little India is really charming, there are so many vibrant colours everywhere including the vegetable shops. Would recommend for the first visitor to visit this place and I don’t mind to revisiting this place again..
Btw if you zoom in into the ledges of the house, they have spikes for keeping pigeons, sparrows, mynahs and other bird pests off ledges where they roost, perch or nest.
A conserved two-storey bungalow, known as the former House of Tan Teng Niah, was valued at a whopping S$70.6 million late last year.
Built in 1900, the former House of Tan Teng Niah is believed to be the last remaining Chinese villa in Little India. The late Mr Tan was a towkay (Chinese businessman ) who owned several confectionery factories in Serangoon Road and a rubber smoke-house at Kerbau Road.
The second storey overhangs the first to create a five-foot way (five feet wide covered pedestrian walkway) where there was once an entrance portico. On both sides of the house, there used to be carriage gates leading into a courtyard.
The pintu pagar (Malay for “swinging wooden half doors”) is richly carved and the front room of the house is resplendent with wall scrolls. Over the entrance door is a gilded name plate with the calligraphic inscription Siew Song (“elegant pine” or “refined pine” in Mandarin). To the Chinese, pine denotes endurance and expresses their aspirations. Many believe that Tan built the house for his wife and that the inscription referred to her.
This house is one of the landmarks listed in the National Heritage Board's Little India Heritage Trail. The building is described as a hybrid of Southern Chinese and European architectural influences, having been restored and conserved in the 1980s as a reminder of an era when small Chinese businesses co-existed and flourished alongside the Indian-dominated cattle-trade industry for which the Little India area was once known for.
When you google Rainbow building Singapore, this place for sure come up as one of them..
One of interesting must visit places in Singapore, which finally on my feed now..
Took this photo on very sunny day and this what happen on golden hours, that explain so much shadows and warmness on my photo. Oh well i need another time to shot this place again.
📍Ministry of Information, Communication & the Arts (MICA)
The MICA building, with all of its windows painted in a myriad of colours like green, red, yellow and blue, is sure to catch your eye as you explore the Civic District trail. Its vibrant exterior and revamped internal space makes it the ideal venue for large-scale exhibitions and performances.
This curiously colorful building has more than 900-ish windows with brightly painted shutters and houses a handful of government ministries and an art courtyard. Up until the late 20th century, it was known as the Old Hill Street Police Station, and was where the Singaproe Police Force worked to clamp down on Chinese secret societies.

Life is a celebration of passionate colors.
Some days are red (when you are high), some are green (when you are productive and fruitful), some are pink (when you are young at heart), while others are blue (when you are down). Some days are orange (peaceful and make you satisfied) and some are yellow (bright and happy).
The most important thing is to enjoy your life — to be happy. It's all that matters.
The houses at Koon Seng Road were built in the 1920’s and 1930’s but it was until the early 90’s that they were to be officially marked for conservation.
The road is actually named after Cheong Koon Seng, born in the 1800′, who was one of the first thirteen students at Singapore’s Anglo-Chinese School. Until the 1970’s, the area was inhabited by Peranakan Chinese, which explains the colourful and unique Chinese architecture to be found in the area.
However, due to gang violence in the 1950’s, Koon Seng was a dangerous place to live. Many of the Peranakans moved out to safer abodes and other Singaporeans bought up many of the properties.
Either way, they’re worth millions today!
Never tempted to remove “for Sale” banner because i thought kind of cute 😝 but i photoshopped away the agent contact number though 🤪
Another favourite of #PinkSingapore shot.. because this house colours so pastel and so #accidentallywesanderson
Will be moving forward to different colour theme, guess what’s next?!
