Heart Studio Term 2 – all about perspectives 3D vs 2D

We have been with Heart Studio for more than 1 year now, more than 10 art projects, there is never one that is the same, no repetitions. Every art work,  the kids are expose to different aspects of art and this term is no different – they learn about 3D Paper Sculpture and the different perspectives.  What makes it even more interesting is that they built the 3D model on the first lesson, and then subsequently transferred into a 2D art work. 

From the different materials provided to build the model, small C build his model using different shapes and sizes and also vegetations. Week 2 is the most interesting in my opinion, transforming the 3D model into a 2D artwork from 3 different perspectives – top, front and side by viewing via a viewfinder made the creative art teachers. 

Thereafter week 3 onwards, small C started with colour blending of the different drawn structure using the colour scheme chosen by small C. He chose blue, black and brown and blending the colours in different proportion/mix to achieve colour blending effect. 

 

So for this term , its not just 1 art work but 2 but of course, we couldn’t have 2D without the 3D. Especially for younger ones where school commitment isn’t too heavy, I truly believe learning art is also a form of relaxation and focus. Especially for a very active child like small C, he is always every where and all about, but for 75 minute a week at Heart Studio, he truly “slow down” and take time to draw and paint which is something very lacking in our fast paced modern world be it schooling or work!

Heart Studio – Inspired by Takashi Murakami

I can’t tell you how excited small C was when the second Heart Studio project for term 1 with Heart Studio was inspired by Takashi Murakami. Takashi Murakami is a famed artist widely recognized for his ability to adapt the aesthetics of Japanese traditional art to operate within the context of popular culture. Inspired by his work, this final project of Term 1 features bright colours and repeated motifs/patterns. 

As small C is very much into Japanese anime recently , he quickly chose to base this to the popular anime Naruto. However, we need to realise that we are not doing anime or Naruto but Takashi Murakami, so we need to incorporate bright colours and repeated motifs/patterns to stay true to the project’s theme

After sketching for the first lesson and learning about the artist, week 2 and 3 was to draw, paint and add more repeated patterns/motif. Small C truly enjoy this project as he could draw his favourite Naruto character and bringing his favourite character come to life

 

For the final week, are the finishing touches and also repeated patterns/motifs with more emphasis.

Small C truly enjoyed drawing and painting his favourite character  – Naruto and I loved how the teacher allowed him the freedom to draw what he enjoyed however, she was also mindful to draw inspiration from Takashi Murakami and incorporate it into small C’s drawing. This art work will definitely be small C’s favourite drawing as he finally drew something close to his heart.

Zero2.5 World’s First Air Ionizer using natural fibers for quality forest air

At first glance, no one would know such a “decorative” item is actually Zero2.5 air ionizer that is able to convert the air at home to the level even better than the clean air at Macritchie Reservoir!

What sorcery? In my year of reviewing air purifiers, I have never seen anything like this before. In fact, many years ago we were so affected by the haze that mooted this company’s pursuit for clean air at home. 

Developed by Zero2.5, this is a Singapore-based spin-off from Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory which designs and manufactures  innovative plant based products & services to deliver CLEAN AIR. Its air ionizers are capable of producing highly purified air that reduces PM2.5 particles and aerosols in the air. 

World Health Organistion’s (WHO) Air Quality target is at PM2.5 of 5g/m3. Did you know what for every 10g/m3 particle count higher that WHO target will increase our healthy mortality and morbidity risks by 8%

Their patented 360 Air Sphere Technology using natural fibers generates large amount of Negative Air Ions that acts as an invisible air-filtering curtain and reduces toxic pollutant and PM2.5 fine particles in the air to achieve clean air standard even better than WHO’s target! This means you can have forest fresh air in our home! And the best part, it does not look like another gadget at home but decorative in nature, to beautify your home!

At First Glance

For starter, check out the Creative Series . I chose LEGO botanical collection as it is more fun and zero maintenance.

The Natural Fiber coco ball acts as a vase that you can decorate using artificial plants like Ikebana from their e-shop or choose your own live plants from the nursery.  Shaped like the Japanese Kokedama, at a fleeting glance,  it looks like such a decorative plant at home! 

Upon closer inspection, the wire will give it away to be an electronic gadget! Definitely smaller than any air purifier in the market and the best part you can place it on a table top, on the tv console, study desk etc, it does not need to be on the floor unlike the conventional air purifier, instantly beautify the place! 

Using it

Using Natural Fiber Air Ionizer, this is the world’s first – this is green and sustainable with very low power consumption of less than 3W. This filters the air by removing PM 2.5 , viruses, bacteria, dust, smoke, mold spores.  

It is very quiet, you don’t even notice when it is turned on, so compact and light weight.

The next big question, how does natural fibers clean the air? 

The sharp end of the natural fiber balls is an emission point of negative air ions. As it is shaped like a ball, this gives a 360 degree air purification effect from the ball. What these negative ions do is that they charge up and clusters harmful airborne pollutants together (viruses, bacteria, PM2.5 pollutants) and bring these clustered air pollutants out of the air and into the ground leaving us with clean fresh air. 

Loving it 

The biggest advantage of the Zero2.5 Air Ionizer is sustainability. Unlike regular air purifier where you need to change the air filter every 6 monthly , you only need to change the husk/fiber after 3 YEARS! Not only it does not take up any space, it is a decorative on its own and you don’t its an air ioniser at a glance! 

It is also very energy efficient with a low energy consumption <3W.  

Ranging from SGD 150 to SGD 320 (depending on the which types of decorative plant you choose), they are definitely cheaper than regular air purifiers in the market.

Quote HOMEWELLNESS for additional 5% (stackable with any prevailing sales discount from Zero2.5 Creative Series 

All devices comes with 1 year warranty

Check out also their ELEGANT series which can even monitor Indoor Air Quality data on your smart phone in real time (see below) and SCENT series where you can even add your favourite essential oil to your clean air. 

ELEGANT Series come with an additional functionality which is the Smart Home Controls. From the air ionizer, you are able to check the air quality. Using wi-fi connectivity, this device is able to give a PM2.5 air quality sensor reading , which means the device can also automatically adjust air cleaning strength accordingly. 

There is a mobile apps where you can check the air quality reading from any where , even when you are out, and to schedule to turn on/off the device at desired time. There are 4 different modes   – productivity, focus, sleep and relax mode to choose from and even choose the strength of the ion transmitted by the ionizer too.

Full day comfort walking with Sunnystep

I never really like wear shoes in Singapore, I actually owned a pair of “expensive” flip flops which is my go-to pair with great support,  however it tends to expand after prolonged wearing. The pair has become very ill fit and loose and has created immense pain on my feet especially after a long day of walking. I can no longer wear my favourite pair of flip flops but wear a pair of covered shoes for all-around support especially for a long day of walking etc else I will end up limping! 

I am so happy to have found a local brand Sunnystep which designs shoes to minimise stress on the feet and the body. It comes with a proprietary arch support, blister-free uppers and a wider front that caters to Asian foot shapes. Their designs are so gender neutral I can even have a matchy pair with my husband! 

I was at their ION outlet to try on my first pair of Sunny Step. I chose the best seller Balance Runner in blush (I am a pink person and this hue does not scream pink loudly and can easily match any outfit) , in fact it comes in so many colours (some of which are limited edition colours) it is so hard to choose – happy problem. Those who does not like shoe laces, you can opt for Balance Walker . The Men Collection also spot the same designs with bigger fittings. 

At first sight 

It has a clean and versatile look, not too overly casual, easily used for office on dress down Friday, doesn’t spot a “sport shoe” look, so easily match with skirt and dresses too –  making this a perfect shoe for travel as 1 pair of shoes matches with all attire! 

Using it

I wore it the minute I got it from the store, when I first tried the pair, it felt so light, almost weightless and buttery soft and flexible uppers that adapt to different foot shapes making it so comfy to wear! Comes with a wider room for the toes to wriggle around , in fact I was advised to take a size up for this purpose! 

Loving it 

With all new shoes, often we worry about blisters , thanks to the extra velvet cushioning at the heels , their shoes are blister-free. And now to the actual business why is this most comfortable walking shoes in Singapore for you to do 10,000+ every day! 

The secret is in the stable arch support that will not sink over time and hence provide long lasting support and anti shock gel cushioning at the heels and the ball of the foot for the utmost support. This is coupled by the fact that it is super light weight – making this the perfect pair of walking shoes! 

Besides this, it is also water-resistant and easy to clean , with quick drying especially in our rainy weather! You don’t need to wear wet shoes if you are accidentally caught in the rain! 

My only regret was why didn’t I get this earlier for my US trip where I easily clock 10,000 every day especially in the 9 days I was at the theme park! I was using my regular running shoes, and it doesn’t look half as nice as this! 

Good things must share, so I manage to get a code EIMEI8OFF for $8 off with minimum purchase of $125 at store or online. Do remember quote EIMEI8OFF to the sales rep when they are processing your purchase or online during checkout. 

 If it’s your first time buying, do get the correct sizing in store with the help of the friendly assistants, there are a total of 13 stores located all around Singapore , see the list of store location from here  These are the photos from the ION stores which was where I got my pair! 

 

I

In fact, I am eyeing on a pair for my husband as his work shoes as he was also looking for a super comfortable pair of shoes for every day work and they have darker colour almost like office dress shoes too – you can’t tell the difference!

Heart Studio 2022- final project “I Shield You”

I can’t believe that another year with Heart Studio has gone by and we are in our final project/artwork for the year! Time really flies when the child is having fun, I can’t believe he has completed a full year with Heart Studio in 2022 and how much he has grown in his technical aspects and as well as his creativity and imagination. Another interesting theme to end the year is “I Shield You”  inspired by the different types of shield form and design. 

Small C chose the same colour scheme as the teacher’s sample but he wanted a very medieval feel to it, so he added a dragon in the centre. After sketching the design on the project, he went on to cut the shape from cardboard and paint the background. In week two, small C drew the finer details and added more colours and shades to the dragon and the shield.

 

In week 3, the task to add the middle patch of yellow and not to affecting the already coloured layers and dragon. Final week is to add more details to the shield and some shading to make the shield have some 3D effect and the final art work make a perfect pretend play toy too! Doesn’t this shield make my little painter look just like a knight! 

One thing I must commend is that flexibility of Heart Studio in term of class replacements, I had to end the term early as we are going on our vacation, so we did the final 4 classes for the final project in 2 weeks, so that the child does not miss out and still manage to complete the art work ahead of time. We can’t wait to start the new year with Heart Studio and to see all the exciting themes for the kids to indulge in!

Halley’s Pico Power of 3 Review – Rejuvenate your skin at Halley Medical Aesthetic’s – 1 month update with video review

1 month update 

I was back at Halley Medical Aesthetic for 1 month update after my first Halley’s Pico Power of 3   last month and I am impressed with result after just 1 treatment.  The clearest differences are my pigmentation spots on both my checks. Pigmentation spot on the side of the right cheek has significantly lightened , likewise, pigmentation spot on the side of the left cheek has significantly lightened,. Overall I feel that my skin is brighter and have a more even skin tone. I have gone for my second laser which is even more intense with a bit more down time, but the results quite immediate, as my hubby recently touched my face and went, how come your face so smooth! That’s like the best compliment in a long while! 

After my impressive results  with Halley Medical Aesthetic’s Ultherapy a few months back (review here) I am back for my virgin laser treatment. I have friends who have raved about their laser treatments and even stop doing facial as laser treatments achieve a far better results than regular facial. As I age, my top 3 worries are pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, even with my regular facial, these are getting more apparent.  Halley’s Pico Power of 3 is able to address all my concerns and more! There are many laser treatments out in the market but I am sold by  Halley’s Pico Power of 3  as it combines the best of different laser machines to achieve optimum results. 

What is Halley’s Pico Power of 3?

Halley’s Pico Power of 3 is a pigmentation buster and rejuvenation laser programme that combines the new Fotona StarWalker PQX Pico Laser with the PicoSure Laser for a more customisable, comprehensive, and effective, uniquely Halley’s treatment experience.

Benefits of Halley’s Pico Power of 3 Laser Programme
• Remove pigmentation (melasma, freckles, and sunspots)
• Lighten acne scars and blemishes
• Reduce wrinkles and fine lines
• Improve skin tone and texture
• Rejuvenate the skin

The new Fotona StarWalker PQX Pico Laser features both short and long laser wavelengths at 532nm and 1064nm respectively, and it is combined with PicoSure Laser, which treats the skin at 755nm. The three different wavelengths from both machines work together to target your skin concerns.

532nm: Great for skin concerns like freckles and sunspots.
755nm: Rejuvenates the skin and removes fine lines and targets unwanted pigmentations on our skin. It leaves the skin refreshed, more elastic, and with fewer visible wrinkles and scars.
1064nm: This is a longer laser wavelength that can penetrate the skin deeper to reach deeper-lying pigments. It is also gentle enough for most delicate and Asian skin types.

Consultation

As this is my second aesthetic treatment with Dr Mark Lim, I totally comfortable and trust him especially after my very impressive results post Ultherapy treatment which he did for me  a few months back! Dr. Mark Lim created a customised regime for me under Halley’s Pico Power of 3 laser programme that combines both lasers to specifically address my skin concerns upon consultation and skin analysis. 

Treatment

Numbing cream is applied to the treatment area before the procedure to make the treatment more comfortable. After 20 minutes of numbing cream,  the treatment begins using  a combination of 2 laser machines namely Fotona StarWalker PQX Pico Laser with the Cynosure PicoSure Laser.  The overall feeling feels like insect bites, or rubber band snapping on my skin, but its very fleeting as it will just go off as soon as the laser goes to another treatment area. After a while, I was accustomed to the sensation and didn’t feel much thereafter, completely relaxed as Dr Lim finished the entire area of my face – including on the lips, under eyes which are the thinnest areas! Cool air was also blown towards the treatment area during the process to reduce the discomfort during the treatment. My treatment took around 20 minutes to complete (typical laser treatment will range from 15 to 30 minutes)

Laser treatments begin using a combination of 2 laser machines to obtain both short and long laser wavelengths

Post Treatment

There is ZERO downtime for me, I do know of some will have redness on the face, but for myself I hardly had that even right after the treatment (my skin is really not the sensitive kind) You can add on a  Cooling Mask ($38) which is infused with chamomile, which will help soothe and calm the skin after the Pico Power of 3 laser treatment which is highly recommended. It also serves to hydrate and reduce the redness on the skin. I was given a mild steroid cream to be applied for the next few day. There is little post treatment care – in fact to put on sunscreen  and stay away from excessive sun exposure for the next few days. Optimal results are expected in about 1 to 2 weeks! 

Video review 

In fact I have booked another session 1 week next month before my travel so that I will look good in my travel photos! 

I’ll update this post with my results. Can’t wait to share my 1-month results with you. Meantime, check out their website on treatments for mature skin for my age group 40s

Heart Studio – Painting My Pepette Around Europe

Inspired by a story Painting Pepette by Linda Ravin Lodding, this was the theme of this term’s art work.  For those who are not familiar with the story, it follows the story of Josette when she decides that her stuffed-animal rabbit Pepette needs a portrait of her own after seeing all the fine portraits of her family in her house in Paris. The two of them set off for Montmartre, the art center of 1920s Paris, to seek out an artist to paint Pepette’s portrait. They encounter Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, Marc Chagall, and Henri Matisse, who all try their hand at capturing the rabbit in their different styles of painting. 

The kids had to choose the different famous places in Europe to paint their favourite soft toy at the chosen place. Small C chose the Eiffel Tower and a dinosaur. Next, they have to decide between painting in impressionistic or representational style.  Small C was taught how to paint with short strokes and opposing strokes too – which is the style of impressionism. 

They also have to outline their artwork in a frame, some inspirations were given to the kids which frame they want to outline their painting.  For the final week is the refinement of the smaller details – dinosaur’s features, details to Eiffel Tower , shadow and backdrop! Probably the first time we are doing an artwork inspired by a book about painting and artists – so much fun and definitely inspired the wanderlust in us!

Make your wish of owning a Hermès come true with Ginza Xiaoma

Do you ever dream of owning a Hermès bag but don’t want to wait 1 year or more for your dream Hermès bag?

 Here is where Ginza Xiaoma comes in to make your dream of owning a Hermès come true without the additional unnecessary small purchases and waiting time at a Hermès store.

 Newly opened in Singapore 8 months ago, and the 3rd outlet after Japan and Hong Kong , Ginza Xiaoma is Asia’s leading Hermès curator, collector, and reseller.

They are one of Asia’s most prestigious Hermès boutiques with their flagship store located at the
heart of Tokyo in Ginza. They specialize in Buying, Selling or Consigning, Sourcing and Appraising Hermès handbags and accessories. From sourcing and supplying the most iconic authentic Hermès handbags such as Birkin, Kelly and many more for an international elite clientele, in the thousands including celebrities, socialites, stylists and concierge services, who all attest to their commitment that each item they sell is authentic.

Each item is carefully authenticated and checked by their team of expert appraisers going through a triple quality control. One of their missions is to offer products that are of high investment value so the classic styling and high quality of Hermes bags make them timeless pieces that can be passed down to the next generation or sold at attractive prices in the active thriving resale market.

From a newbie to a collector, they act as advisors rather than salespeople to provide world-class

Dedicated to impeccable local talent and local service alike, Ginza Xiaoma has grown rapidly into the international market with their expansion to Hong Kong and now Singapore. 

I had the opportunity to step foot into their latest outlet, a very spacious and cozy showroom right in the heart of Singapore, Orchard – Ngee Ann City.

This is their entrance of the boutique. Oh my! What a spacious and beautifully designed area. I love how when you walk in, you can see a big plasma TV screen which shows a walk-through of their company and I get to watch an office and boutique tour of their Japan HQ. Do you also know that the white “bags” you see on the wall are actually Hermes statues. So cute!

This is the highlight of the showroom and the reason why I am here. There is a big comfortable sofa for us guests to sit and chill and I was taking my time to check out their wide array of bags.

Another angle of their showroom

This is their café and bar area.

Now this is the highlight of the boutique, the one and only Holy Grail of Hermès bag!

The Kelly 35 Himalaya Niloticus Crocodile priced at $295,000 SGD and Kelly 28 Matte Niloticus Crocodile priced at $696,000!

Each item has been carefully stored, maintained even down to the handling, where the sales rep and client need to don on a pair of gloves if they wish to try on the handbags. 

Claire, the sales representative was so knowledgeable from the get-go. Being someone who is not familiar with the range of Hermès bag, she introduced me to the classic and hot favourites especially for a newbie like me – Kelly 25, Birkin 30. Of course, I needed to know to get myself acquainted to the many discontinued designs and limited editions as I would not have an opportunity to see or own – the most expensive and the most coveted in store was the Crocodile Diamond-encrusted Himalaya Kelly 28 worth $696,000!

I really had an enjoyable session learning about  Hermès , like an introduction class to Hermès 101, there was no hard selling. I was also keen to know more about entry level Hermès handbags which I can potentially own and keep as an investment item as well.
