I went to Artbox when it is in Singapore a few weeks ago. It was much better than last year. Last year was so crowded and there was no crowd control at all. This year, there were bag checks and some form of crowd control. The space rented is much bigger as well. I managed to get some wooden keychains for myself and a cute handmade crotchet keychain. I love crotchet keychains, or just about anything that is handmade. Haha. Is it just me or do you guys love handmade stuff too?
I went there twice – first with Alex and Jin Quan, second with Hui Keng and Yi Wei. Took some photos and was surprised to see quite a number of people bringing their DSLRs taking photos too. Oh, and the usual selfie crowd as well. Somehow carnivals are no longer as nice as before. It’s more commercial-driven decorations (towards Snapchat, Instagram, and other social media platforms) rather than the actual fun. It’s not as nice to take photos in carnivals when you see a sea of people whipping out their phones to take photos instead of enjoying the food and games…
I have been blogging for more than 17 years (well, I started in 2001) and this new wave of social media kind of got me off guard. I am not a fan of posting my selfies on social media for strangers to comment and judge me. But I do love posting photos of the stuff and scenery I saw. I love taking photos and sharing some of what I took. I also have a brand name (lihotography) dedicated for my photography works.
Anyway, I have scheduled my photos to be posted on Instagram in the next few days. Once it is posted on Instagram, I will post them here for you guys to enjoy. Photos are below for you guys to enjoy!
And of course some dinner at Ding Tai Fung!
