Rockin’ Out: 2012 Coachella Style

The inner hipster in me dies for music festivals. Furthermore, I love the styles spotted at this year’s Coachella. Listening to live ‘indie’ bands. Soaking up the sun. Sometimes I’m wondering what the heck I’m doing in Singapore during Coachella. Celebrities such as Emma Watson, Diane Kruger, Kate Bosworth, Katy Perry and many more are seen out and about. Models are strutting their stuff in the “model off duty going to Coachella” look. Major eye-candy action, if you ask me! Here are some of the best looks so far at Coachella 2012 and let’s take inspiration from these street style shots for the next music festival:

Laneway Festival 2012 with Dr. Martens & The Cambridge Satchel Co.

Laneway Festival 2012 is back for the second time in Singapore! It is the indie music event of the year which featured amazing acts such as Feist, M83, Laura Marling, The Drums and etc. Dr. Martens Singapore kindly invited me to Laneway Festival 2012 (yay!) and also sponsored my pair of Dr. Martens for the event (double yayy!). Thank you, Dr. Martens! The best thing ever was Dr. Martens festival survival kit which contains a useful raincoat (considering last year’s weather!), tiny torchlight, wet wipes (super handy!) and keychain with a bottle opener. The weather was scorching hot. I actually wished it rained. I carried my Cambridge Satchel Company‘s 14-inch Classic Satchel in Green sponsored by the good folks at Doorstep Luxury. In case you’re interested, it’s SGD225 and free delivery in Singapore! I pinned my Dr. Martens button badge on it – share the love! My pal, Janice came along with me – it’s our Laneway Redux. I guess I need to spend some quality time with her before she heads off to her six-month adventure in Kiwiland. Here are the photos from our Laneway experience – can’t wait for next yearrrrr!

Picked up my festival survival kit. The good folks from Dr. Martens shuttled concert goers from City Hall to Fort Canning Park. Smart!

Do you like my Dr. Martens? It’s knee-high and purple.

So I was freshening up at the National Museum of Singapore… check out my Green Satchel courtesy of Doorstep Luxury.

The yellow raincoat came in handy when it started to drizzle at 5:00pm for like… 5 minutes.

Do you know this man? We’ve been seeing him at all the concerts – basically the tall, white man at every concert in the front!

Meet Tim – I’ll be interviewing one day so stay tuned :)

Jan and I goofing around! Check out ST’s Life today for my short interview about Laneway.

OH, and Happy Valentine’s Day!

The Flaming Lips: Live in Singapore at Marina Bay Sands!

Marina Bay Sands burst in psychedelic confetti and giant balloons at The Flaming Lips with The Raveonettes gig last Thursday. It was probably one of the highlights of my November – hands down, one of the best gigs I’ve ever attended. It was one big party and you bet everyone had awesome fun! The Raveonettes kicked start the night with the poppy sometimes dark music – unfortunately, they have to suffer from major sound hiccups throughout their set. The Flaming Lips came on after a quick sound check and everyone was ready to dance the night away.

Do You Realize – that you have the most beautiful face
Do You Realize – we’re floating in space
Do You Realize – that happiness makes you cry
Do You Realize – that everyone you know someday will die

The Flaming Lips “Do You Realize”

Bumped into my old classmate, Eunice who was picked to dance on stage!
