| What is your secret day job? |

6 Jul
In this day and age, it’s possible to have a day job that feeds your body…… and another secret day (or night!) job which feeds your soul.
Of course you’ll lucky if your day job feeds your soul too! But I’ve come to accept that you can have many sides to you, and if you know how to manage all these aspects of yourself, then you’re not that far off from being content (and perhaps having more time to think about others rather than just me, me, me).
These new brooches are for those soul-feeding day jobs (secret ones included!). And they are all in stock at my little space in Dulcetfig! Will be putting them up for sale in my etsy shop soon too, keep an eye out for them πŸ™‚
I know there are so many of you out there! πŸ™‚
video editor, fashion editor, beauty editor, newspaper editor – respect!
Music feeds my soul. Does it feed yours?
Read a friend’s facebook post about having some quiet time… gotta love it.
Ever wish you could say that out loud to someone but never quite had the guts?
Having been one, I know sometimes I wished I could SCREAM this! πŸ˜›
They’ve got a tough job.
Enjoy folks! And I am always open to suggestions of what occupations to put on these brooches.
Leave me a comment! πŸ˜€

Most of you probably know that shupg doesn’t get out much… well maybe because I’m such an ‘auntie’ (a slightly mocking term of endearment in the most Singaporean sense of the word) and I have to sleep early, don’t like to take the cab or sit around doing less than one thing at a time.
So I’m so glad that someone found shupg at a chance meeting at the Pigeonhole (a great new cafe at Duxton Road) – Thank you Lovie of Dulcetfig!
And now – shupg’s only physical exercise is at Dulcetfig at Haji Lane, one of the pioneer shops of the area and still going strong for many great reasons.
Here’s a tasting-platter of what shupg’s serving at Dulcetfig.
We’ll see you there! πŸ™‚
Monochrome geometric shapes with lots of 3D action!
I whistle – Ooo whee wheet!
One piece only! I think it looks like a cat – meow!
The way to live life
For a little quiet time
One of my favourite series – made of retro wooden toys! πŸ˜‰
I’m so one!
How many of you can relate to this? I know people who can!
1 out of 2 persons I see is carrying a camera – Singapore has many photographers!
A subtle message at work – it might work! πŸ™‚ at least it’ll get a laugh!

Shupg’s first outing of 2011! Would like to thank all the lovely folks who came down and the new friends made.
‘Twas a cosy sunday afternoon at Pigeonhole, the new watering hole down at Duxton Road. A breathe of fresh air amidst hectic shenton way and the buzz of chinatown. Brings back old memories of that old lane where I used to work, buying teh-o-peng at the coffeeshop for all in the office at the crack of dawn.
My take-out from today: Gotta get my blog going, I’m a decade behind! But that’s me, the auntie for you. Forever a tech-sotong. So, here’s my first blog post…. don’t slam me! I promise I’ll get to it whenever I can. ‘Tis going to be a busy year, but one I hope to spend in quiet recollection.
Anyhow, here’s a little initial tasting of my collections, I’ll be uploading more in weeks to come. In the meantime, you can take a look at my stuff at here. Prices on my blog are specially for my Singaporean customers only! (*Please do note a local normal mail shipping price of $1.50 applies to each item though combined shipping is always possible.)

Please do always email me if you see something you like, have any queries or would like to just talk about something inane.
