+ Life & Times : FIN x SBTG Tote Bag +

I saw this genius post on Facebook about a new bag, to be honest, that’s the last thing i need - furthermore, when it comes to shopping, i spend little or close to nothing, unless shopping for music. So when this frugal mind of mine sets eyes on a beautiful something and has a genuine intent to buy it, you know it will be well worth the dollars and cents.

I love any combination of leather and canvas, and this is no exception, plus it rides on tiny details like beautifully hand-painted leopard patterned handles. Enough of the silly totes with small arm holes and standard A4 sized bodices, this one is for real people with real things, like skate decks and long rulers, and big computers and 80s sized drum machines.

Christmas gift to myself and to spread the SBTG x FIN word to this corner of the world.

Merri mew mew!

FIN x SBTG Tote Bag
Product Collabs 2013

A while ago, when I was hanging with Jean Christophe Fusneur, the bag that he was rocking caught my attention. I came to know that it was a local product made by FIN, I fell in love with it. It was the bag that i had been looking for all along.

Months later, I got to know Fahmy Ishak, the man responsible for making them. After chatting over sign painting, skateboarding and vintage clothes, we decided to do a collab.

A small run of FIN crafted Totes with a lil SBTG in it. Featuring a “munzee” stencil and a hand painted leopard camo straps for our friends & fam.

+ Work : frompamm ✘ exhibition august ✘ the lofty messages {installed} +

"The Lofty Messages" - a turning point for my work from graphic to art. The few experiences i sought after in a manual journey through a year of gypsy travelling. The inconsistency of a home and vague promises made much of the sentiment in this piece.

While running the exhibition, i realised one thing that was priceless and maybe a true meaning for holding shows, is the level of discourse and valuable insight of your work through other people’s eyes and hearts.

I fed the audience with a morsel of sentiment, yet received more than a bowl of emotional intimacy.

Making use of my limited resources, this film is a representation of the 4 nights i spent with people, the work, essence of the show and a deep well of appreciation for the space.

+ Work : frompamm ✘ exhibition august ✘ the lofty messages {installed} - ends with a hoot! +

Wednesday night marked the end of my first solo show, independently run, installed and everything else in-between - independently. Throughout the experience, i was most grateful for the level of unexpected discourse and genuine love from the people around me who supported my work by being there. 

The week was tough to face, there were so many things working against me and many other gigs at night, especially the mammoth “Night Festival” held by the Singapore Art Museum. The clash of events helped me weed out the genuine friends and that, i truly cherish. Some surprise guests also made my week ten times better.

I’ve learnt that while having a show is important, it’s also important to understand the lessons that come out of each one. For this one, i’ve gained insight on setting up a professional show and running with simple ideas - my first vinyl lettering experience, curating the space, getting along with gallery neighbours, preparing sales lists. I’ve learnt a lot.

I have much to be thankful for, and it’s only through my close peeps, that i can truly place these blessings in perspective. 

Till the next one! In London :}

SG x HK ♦ Suki Quasimodo x DJ Reiki ♦ Aug 2013 

August 2013 - representatives of Singapore collectives DATDATDAT and FFF Girl DJ Bootcamp - Suki Quasimodo & DJ Reiki, brought their mind, body and tunes across the seas to the sci-fi city, Hong Kong. 

Over 2 nights of mess and mayhem brought Volt and Bassment to a colourful halt. Playing for underground collectives - Sessions HK and Thisismusic HK, both femme DJs showed true spirit and love for the Bass heads and House connoisseurs.

This is a document of the adventures they took over the long weekend, through eating parades and discovering offshore island beaches.

Poof!

RISING from the fine necropolis of the now deceased, “I ♥ DUBSTEP” shindig,
come the inevitable zombie twin sister, twice removed cousin of a bigger,
busier, boom boom pow wow wow-er simply referred to as,“DATDATDAT”.

Expect gem-stained sessions of gleaming jacked-up house junctures,
nose-itching sub bass business, diamond crusted beats from the West Coast
and dirty-drrrty ghetto-tech machinedrum rhythms to keep your feet working

Cracking the whip on the bull’s hide are the creators, originators and
perpetrators behind

I recently did an “interview” for the very forward thinking people of COAL - singapore’s freshest webzine and part retail concept on the scene - fantastic read and even more glamourous writing.
COAL mag pays homage to Singaporean lifestyle, fashion, nightlife, music, arts and all else a notch more interesting than the fantabulousity of chicken rice. It is a compass for your navigation through Singapore’s creative map, an irreverent speech bubble hovering alongside the hope for open conversation.

COAL shop (coming soon) is the spoon that feeds our hoarder instincts, a virtual assembly of homegrown designer labels that collectively challenge existing notions of Singaporean sensibilities through the art of fashion, and then some.

COAL is a big undertaking born of a small reverie, a locomotive along an idyllic track of things to come.

They said, "chicken rice" - I’m intrigued! If you feel and would be so kind, to find some interest in the things that keep my wheels spinning and tyres well-driven, the things that keep me sane and light my feet to dancing, and the songs that hold some deep-set memories - check it out on their front page now + spread the word!
