Že dolgo nisem tako z užitkom planirala obiska mesta, kot tokrat za Singapur. Odkrivanje destinacije preko interneta je skoraj enako zabavno kot potem, ko se čez njo sprehodiš. Najin prvi obisk leta 2009 ni nudil nič posebnega, ali je bilo mesto, ali pa jaz, da se nisem potrudila na svoj način in do dobra prebrskala točke, ki bi me zanimale.

Vsaka priprava na obisk destinacije, se prične s pregledom kupa Monocle revij in interneta. Najprej sem se lotila iskanja singapurških modnih oblikovalcev in našla blog oblikovalke Jo Soh in njene blagovne znamke Hansel. V roku parih dni sem prečesala cel blog. Všeč mi je, kako vsakič predstavi nastanek nove kolekcije in izvor inspiracije za design. Dal mi je zagon, da v bodoče lepše skrbim za zalogo svojih izdelkov.

Ker sem želela priti do nove številke Kinfolka, sem preko njihovih stokistov našla Books Actually in ves Tiong Bahru predel, The Little Dröm Store in neskončno oh in sploh knjigarno Kinokuniya, ki ima na zalogi najbolj kul knjige, tako kul, da na koncu ne kupiš nič in vrh vsega nama je do knjige in revije pomagal prodajalec, ki je nosil dres slovenske nogometne reprezentance, ki jo je kupil na Ptuju, ko je bil na srednješolski izmenjavi. Midva sva žarela od slučaja, njemu pa se je zdelo nekakao tako, kot da bi bil vsak vikend na Ptuju.

Ko sem prvič prebrala o Marina Bay Sands, sem se prijela za glavo, kaj sva res počela na prvem obisku, da sva nekaj tako ikonskega in ogromnega popolnoma zgrešila. Hotel,  z dva tisoč petsto sobami, kazino in najvišje ležeči neskončni bazen na svetu so zgradili šele leto kasneje. The landmark za obiskat in tudi malo za izgubiti se v. Tako se v pritličju nakupovalne galerije nevede znajdeš v michelinovi zvezdici Din Tai Fung, se napaseš na razgledu na finančni center mesta, obiščeš Louis Vuittonov otok in povedriš na najdražjem čaju ever.

In še nekaj lepega o Singapurju. Keith Loutitov film Lion City.

Since our first visit to Singapore, this city has become such a pleasure of discovery. I’m not shore, if it was just me, or the city the first time, but this time, it felt like three days to spend there, were a little to short.

My exploration of any destination begins by checking out the Monocle and the internet. First, I wanted to find out about Singaporean fashion designers and amongst many, found Jo Soh and her Hansel fashion label. Fun and sophisticated knitted items, supported by a fun insight into everything Hansel. Her blog became my favorite pastime.

I wanted to get my hands on the latest issue of Kinfolk magazine, so I checked out their sale locations, where I found Books Actually and The Little Dröm Store. Because they were out of stock, I searched further and found enormous Kinokuniya book shop. We decided to fetch a couple of magazines and a book before our morning coffee and we found our selves lost among incredible titles for four hours. Kinfolk was not in the magazine section, but in the section that represented a Kinfolk like publications. To top everything off, a book store attendant helped us find some titles and had a shirt of Slovenian football team on, which he bought in a little city of Ptuj, while on high school exchange. That were my best four hours without coffee.

And there is a time that you plan not to be planed. So you can get lost in whatever comes your way. Well, we decided to get lost in Marina Bay Sands and we found our selves on top of the world, in michelin starred Din Tai Fung Taiwanese restaurant, on Louis Vuitton island and had a taste of S$19 jasmin tea.

Keith Loutitov take on Lion City is also something nice to see.

  • Ko sem bila na polovici slik sem dobila tak groznen in lep občutek hkrati. Kako zelo bi šla sem in kako zelo si lahko srečna, da si že bila tukaj ter kako lepe fotografije so nastale, sploh zadnja – super ujet trenutek.

  • kolonijalni vibe prvih fotk me je čisto raztopil, ostrina in nadrealizem zadnjih pa postavila na trdna tla. in potem sem si zaželela prav teh, ker so “čudnosti” včasih še bolj vznemirljive od prijetnosti 😉
