Of Volcanoes and Alleys

Earlier in December, I went to the National Museum with Shasha and Sal to see the Pompeii exhibit:

Corpses lined the entrance of the exhibit. These were people who died during the volcanic eruption that wiped Pompeii out. They were well-preserved from the ash that settled down, and someone had the bright idea to resin-cast them. Morbid, but very fascinating. This was a guy who was shackled during the eruption– a prisoner of some sort. :(

A pig.


And some more of my favourite displays in the exhibit:

After that, Shasha and I went to Chinatown to meet up with Ruru. Ruru was still working though, so we wandered down the small streets of Chinatown and found ourselves a neat little alley to goof around in:

So cute! ♥

✿ Green striped pullover: Mango (Malaysia)
✿ Navy leggings (120 denier): Top20 (Singapore)
✿ Dark grey sneakers: Rubi (Singapore)
✿ Gold leaf headband: Paris Kids (Japan)
✿ Blue animal backpack: shop in Ameyoko, Japan

I’m eagerly looking forward to when Shasha and I can take photos together! I just know that it’ll be super fun. XDDD

Also, I’m going to be scheduling posts from when I try to write them during the weekends, because there’s just no time during weekdays. What is this. :(

    Yeah, I’ve always been fascinated by Pompeii because the people and rooms and everything look frozen in time. That exhibit looks really cool. Also loved your little video to Ace of Base-hysterical!
