    Catch Up: Zalora Inspires & A Birthday

    I feel like this coming out of the woodwork thing is going to be happening pretty (un)often this year. How am I still alive I’m virtually drowning in work and obligations.

I gladly welcomed the opportunity to take my camera out for a spin – after all, who could say no to when presented with a chance for a private tour? But first, Ottie and I visited the dual opening of Mojoko‘s Sick Scents and Gerald Leow‘s I Am Time Grown Old To Destroy The World. Naturally, I gravitated towards the colourful use of collage…
