Our latest addition to our playground pin series : Pineapple (Ong Lai!). Though the Pineapple playground did not garner as much attention as the iconic dragon playground, personally it still remains as one of our most loved playgrounds.
HUAT AH ;P
We shot this photo in 2009 at Pasir Ris, using expired 35mm film with a Nikon F50. Unfortunately this playground has been demolished, we’re not sure when, but we tried re-visiting it 2 weeks ago but it was gone.
We were greeted this morning by the postman! And he arrived with the jubilee Moomin mug that we won from the #moominspotting competition. 2014 is Tove Jansson’s 100th anniversary so the bottom of this mug bears the “Tove 100” logo as well. Plus this mug is a limited edition series, so precious!!
Our jubilee Moomin mug also came with this “missing” Moomin poster, how cute is this!
Fashioned after Singapore’s Iconic old school mosaic playgrounds (circa 1970/1980). The playground was our school, our imagination, our friend; life lessons were learnt through bruises gathered from knocking against colourful mosaic tiles, by scraping our knees falling on gritty sandpits, the feeling of sand between our toes.
Did you guys know that the Dragon playground located at 28 Lorong 6 Toa Payoh, is currently being preserved?
The four blocks of HDB flats surrounding it are to be torn down, but we’re so glad the dragon playground managed to escape this demolition.
Totes available in 3 designs:
Currently, we’re really digging Architecture in Helsinki’s latest album, and loooving their latest art direction!! Awesome colour tones and cute typeface!
We also love how they’ve have taken themselves into another new level in terms of branding, check out their NOW + 4EVA concept Store. In line with their latest album colour tones/art direction, they’ve collaborated with various creative entities to produce a series of lifestyle products! Wished these were available in Singapore!
Some products in the series include:
• 3D Architecture In Helsinki candy edibles by Lucy McRae
• Limited Edition AIH x Kester Black nail polish
• Limited Edition NOW + 4EVA resin bangle Collab with Dale Hardiman
• Exclusive AIH socks designed by Tightology
• Super limited AIH NOW + 4EVA bags by We Are Itu
This March’s dröm sessions, we had the opportunity to catch up with Finnish illustrator – Hanna Konola! Hanna uses the most quirky and somewhat unexpected pairings and combinations from the colour palette, her illustrations are so simplistic yet so complex both at the same time. We stumbled and fell in love with Hanna’s works when we saw them at Tokyo in indie stores such as Galerie Doux Dimanche & Uguisu.
But now let’s go beyond & dig deeper into Hanna’s creative brains as we interview her, let’s go!
Here, you’ll get to meet Uncle Lawrence Lim – Joanne’s uncle, whose autograph book contribution was a real gem because it was from the 1950s! You’ll also hear from Phoebe (of Carpenter and Cook), and also one half of the little dröm store’s owner – Stanley, about their thoughts on Singapore’s infamous 90’s autograph book movement.
The brown sugar soy milk with the marshmallow foam was such a comforting drink to indulge in for early mornings! There was an ongoing exhibition by a local artist, so all the wooden pieces you see here are the masterpieces of that artist. The artworks were all so nicely integrated into the whole cafe space :)
Here’s continuing where we left off from sharing our Tokyo Travelogue. These are a little long overdue, but we still do hope they inspire! Here’s Kate Coffee, yet another awesome recommendation from Hello Sandwich’s Tokyo Guide.
We’ve shot these photos using expired film here – you can tell from the warped colour tones. We kinda like the rawness and imperfections here, especially how the images are inaccurately cropped (you could tell from the abrupt thick black rectangles cutting across our photos, heh!)
The food, ambient, drinks were all so good! Oh how we miss Japan!
Welcome to our blog! Here, we share little things, people, photographs, encounters and all other things heartening. Hope you'll enjoy your visit here.
//for everything starts with a dröm//
If one is watchful and quiet enough, you could see that the wind carries with it, as it blows, many random floating dream bubbles.
As wide as the skies are above our heads, and as vast as the grassfields are below our feet, so are the big dreams in our little hearts.
We love catching floating dream bubbles, careful in letting them rest on the top of our palms. Watchful in not letting them burst, amidst the occasional drizzles of showers. Precious are these delicate dreams.
We see ourselves as dream keepers, and we hope to be able to share a piece of our dröm with you, and yours with us.
Take heart! ♥
love from the drömkeepers
