OUTFITS

Shine in the Night Time

I don’t generally like going out at night. A poor sense of direction and astigmatism doesn’t make for safe navigation within the city shrouded in darkness – darkness interspersed with beacons of yellow perhaps, but darkness nonetheless. It’s a fear I’ve carried with me ever since I could remember, lying on my mattress unable to succumb to sleep even after it was past my bedtime, looking up at the three lines of light shining through the ventilation grates of the bedroom door, trying to listen to sounds of life from the living room of the old house. My parents were still together then, so I must have been no older than five. Who’s afraid of the dark? Me.

I’ve always been.

I mixed the brightest items I own (Juicy Couture neon pink leopard print skirt and Converse yellow rubber Chuck Taylors) with my black lace yoke blouse this particular evening on my way to LASTPLAY, the culminating finale to this year’s PRESSPLAY. PRESSPLAY is one of the many public initiatives that make Singapore cool – where else would you see public libraries extend their opening hours just to host cool art workshops for free (leather-crafting, paper-pleating, western calligraphy)? Then again, I may be biased because this was organised by #stillbestcolleaguesintheworld.

No, you know what? It is pretty awesome to have public libraries that boast modern RFID tagging systems, cool architecture, and a space not just for the active engagement of the community, but also for the arts. We have so many free arts programmes for the public! It’s a pity it’s not as well-known as it should be.
