It was a really fun experience at the ArtScience Museum for us when we were there during the 1st week of the June holidays. I was really captivated by the jewels on display and took the opportunity to take some macro shots.
These pins are really pretty. I love the details on it. They make for very outstanding broaches on a jacket. I guess that these “babies” will not make it to my jacket as they are certainly too expensive for me to afford.
This is a piece which I personally would wear out. I love butterflies and their pretty colors. This diamond encrusted pendant would make any plain color jacket outstanding.
Besides single pieces of jewellery there were also sets on display. This particular one was ruby and diamonds. It is really interesting to see how creative the designers can be with creating the pieces.
I love the brilliance of this sapphire ring. The deep blue stones are accentuated by the small diamonds around it.
This ruby ring reminds me of the traditional Chinese coins. The design is very unique as it has the ruby inside instead of outside on the ring.
May was one of the most chaotic months for me. Even though I had a break from my studies I was busy coaching the boys as it was the exam month for them. Monkey boy’s study schedule will be getting more and more intensive as his Prelim Exams are around the corner.
While taking a break from studies I spent more time pondering on my directions for the rest of 2016. It will get even more busy in the 2nd half of this year as my workload will be increasing. Looking at blooms certainly helps to keep one’s spirit high and focused.
I aim to start trying out new dishes again to add to the existing menu. I’m going to add more low-carb dishes to the weekly meals to make it a more healthy eating experience for the kids and me. Yummy eats are something which I will be working on.
I intend to sign up for a Japanese cooking class if I do come across a suitable one. I certainly need a hands on session with a Japanese chef.
