Out (Of The Country) and About

Winter Gray

It has been months since my last post and here is some outfit blog post from my recent trip in Taiwan. So recent that I just arrived back home and started sorting out pictures for my blog entries.

There is so much to say about Taiwan and will detail all them on my next few blog entries. For all I can say right now is that Taiwan is by far one of the best places I have been to, everything is amazing – from food, sights and people!

Our trip in Taiwan is in the middle of the winter. Though snow is scarce in Taiwan (snow can be found on top of the mountains where you still need to trek or something), the wind still brings cold weather. When we arrived, it was around 8 degrees and averaging to 11-15 degrees which by the way is considered cold for those who are living in a tropical country. Good for me though that I always prefer the cold weather over the hot one.

You should have known by now that gray is one of my most favorite color and I love playing with monotone ensembles. Recently, you have seen me in all black but very seldom is an all gray look. Gray also looks good with colorful and playful background which also happened that we visited such colorful places when I wore the ensemble.

Hope you like my take on this winter and all-gray ensemble.

Singapore (Part 2): Up in the ION Sky

After graffiti hunting in the artsy neighborhood of Haji Lane, we have decided tho visit one of the observation decks in Singapore. The country has never experienced scarcity of skyscrapers thus leading to observatory decks, one of the most popular would be the “ION Sky”. I think ION Sky is kind of new as even my friend who lived in Singapore for quite some time only learned it from me (or maybe he is too preoccupied with his work?).

ION Sky is in ION Orchard, one of the most popular mall in Singapore. Even though that this is my first trip in Singapore, I always hear ION and Orchard as the place to see and visit. Orchard is like the central hub of Singapore with all the malls, shops, restaurants , you name it.
 

ION Sky!

  

Tourist Orange in ION Sky

 

To get to ION Sky, or most probably the right term is ‘to ascend’, you need to go to the 4th level of ION Orchard and an express elevator will take you to the 54th floor. Yes, 54 floors up with non-stop elevator ride. Honestly, I didn’t feel any dizziness at all as you will not feel that the elevator is moving at all. The elevator box is all black, lights are dimmed and a soothing music plays in the background. Talk about distracting the senses.
 

Skies Are Blind

   

One you are in the ION Sky, it’s magical. You have a 360 view of Singapore and even be able to see the neighboring states of Malaysia and Indonesia. Perfect to go up in ION Sky if it is sunny but they said that going up during a rainy day is an experience as well. Well, I prefer sunny days than rainy days.

I love ION Sky as I am always fascinated with clouds. Next time I’m in Singapore, I’ll make sure to catch the sunset in ION Sky. Well, if the schedule permits as ION Sky is only open from 3:00PM to 6:00PM and it only gets dark in Singapore around 7PM.

 

Fave Photo. ☺️
