Instagram Connect with me through photos on Instagram

I’ve jumped on the Instagram bangwagon. Like finally. Kind of late I know. But better late than never. So those who like to get connected through photos, join me here. You’ll notice that I don’t have a lot of pictures at the moment and it’s really because of two reasons. One, I’m pretty new to this and two, I’m not so addicted to it.

Bellabox Quick look: Pangea Organics Skincare Discovery Kit

Hey, isn’t this post about Pangea Organics? So what’s that pink Bellabox lurking in the background of the picture? Oh wait, isn’t Bellabox one of those that offers subcription-based personalized beauty box to your doorstep each month? So have they got an ecocentric beauty box for subscription now? Er…not quite. The Pangea Organics Skincare Discovery Kit came from Bellabox all right but nah, it’s not part of the monthly subscription box. It so happens that Bellabox also operates an online store and Pangea Organics is one of the brands they carry in Singapore and this Skincare Discovery Kit was sent to me for sampling.

Haikaa Yamamoto: a song celebrating beauty

Haikaa Yamamoto Haikaa Yamamoto: a song celebrating beauty

I really didn’t know what to make of singer-songwriter Haikaa Yamamoto when I first read about her diverse cultural background. Her pictures are not telling but she is a Japanese descendant born in Brazil and has studied in both US and Japan. And what really enthralled me was when I heard her performing “Work of Art”, a lovely number she composed with her songwriting partner, Mercuri, and sung in 19 languages to celebrate the appreciation of diversity. Other than English, some of the other languages include Arabic, French, Greek, Hebrew, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Turkish, and even some very obscure tongues such as Guarani M’ Bya. It’s got a very catchy tune and when performed in the different languages, the song brings such a soulful dimension to the idea of global connectivity! You just have to hear it for yourself!
