Wow! What a whirlwind week of pop-up events we’ve just had! We were at the Fullerton, Orchard Rendevouz Hotel, the American Women Association’s Holiday Luncheon, and then at Cluny Court. An enormous thank you to everyone who stopped by, bought gifts, offered encouragement and gave us suggestions for future Singapore gifts. Would you believe we ran out of our new durian and rambutan trivets at the very first fair! New stock simply flew off the table too! We love the way one customer put it, ‘It’s a way to say you’d had durians without that dreadful smell!’ Our next pop-up event is at Tanglin Mall on 20-23 Dec. In the meantime, you can always shop online (check out our brand new website: karenmadesingapore.com The link is in our bio) or DM us at: https://m.facebook.com/karenmadesingapore/ Or email: [email protected] Thanks so much again and see you SOON! . #madaboutsingapore #karenmadesingapore #singaporeinsiders #sglife #trivet #unlimitedsingapore #iwantoneofthose #nomoreboringpresents #christmasshopping #limitededitionprints #singaporesouvenirs #singaporegifts #localmementos #coolgifts #affordableart #madeinsingapore #stretchcanvasses #Christmaspresents #christmasgifts #christmasfairs

Sharing with you some very amusing things customers have said and done so far today: 1. A lady on the phone put her cup of coffee down on one of the coasters (whilst I was standing there at the table!) and carried on with her conversation. 2. Lady: “How much does it cost you to print the photograph on the canvas? How much profit do you make per canvas? 3. Stressed out mom: “Will you be here for a few minutes? Can he (young two year old) stay with you whilst I do a quick dash into Cold Storage? 4. Customer: Why don’t you sell Singapore-themed baby clothes? (Clearly, I’m missing a trick here...!) We’re here today at Cluny Court till 7pm. Do drop by! #christmas@clunycourt #christmasgifts . . #madaboutsingapore #karenmadesingapore #singaporeinsiders #sglife #durians #unlimitedsingapore #iwantoneofthose #nomoreboringpresents #christmasshopping #limitededitionprints #singaporesouvenirs #singaporegifts #localmementos #coolgifts #affordableart #chiclifestyle #madeinsingapore

A day’s break to stock up on our trivets, coasters and tidy tins that sold out at our last two pop-up events! And just collected this stunning stretch canvas.

Everywhere you looked in this monastery off National Road 6, it was quite spectacular, from the vivid colours, the ornate carvings, the wall murals depicting Buddhist teachings, to the numerous mythical creatures - the garudas and nagas - protecting against bad spirits. You couldn’t help but wonder at the people and the strength of their religious beliefs that made them labour long and hard to create this beautiful place. #Cambodia #buddhistmonastery . #buddhism #buddhistbeliefs #lifeincambodia #cambodiatravel #southeastasia #lovecambodia #traveldiary #traveladdict #postcardsfromaroundtheworld #beautifulplaces #wanderlust #instacambodia #destinasian #Indochina #mustvisit #karenmadesingapore #travelholic #traveller

I suddenly realized I was not alone in the vast and seemingly deserted monastery off National Road 6. Turning around, I nearly trod on these two Khmer children, so close behind me were they. The little girl followed me everywhere for the rest of the time I was there. The young boy keep pointing to my camera and went into sulk when I wouldn't hand over my camera for him try taking a picture himself. As I explored the rest of the monastery, the shy little girl signalled to me areas I could enter and those that were not permitted. She didn’t say anything nor did she ask for $1 as, sadly, many of the children we met on our travels did. I was told the monastery looked after children like these two who parents were away at work all day or were struggling to look after them. I waved goodbye to her when we were leaving, I felt strangely sad to leave her. #Cambodia #locallife #cambodianculture . . . . #monastery #khmerchildren #villagelife #buddhistbeliefs #lifeincambodia #cambodiatravel #southeastasia #lovecambodia #traveldiary #traveladdict #postcardsfromaroundtheworld #beautifulplaces #wanderlust #instacambodia #destinasian #Indochina #mustvisit #sweetsmiles #karenmadesingapore

Writing Christmas cards? For many years, it was the least fun of the things on my Christmas to-do list. Including a personal note for each recipient meant I took longer than anybody else to complete my cards. They were inevitably posted late so they arrived late, sometimes days, but often weeks, after Christmas. But, ironically, I felt such joy when I saw Christmas cards in our letterbox. The feeling that family and friends had bothered to write and send me a card feel me feel special and loved. And I never threw away the old Christmas cards. Recently, I found a stash in a drawer and I re-read them with great pleasure. For the last two years, I convinced myself texting Christmas greetings was saving trees and the planet. E-cards were quick, easy, timely but, quite honestly, curiously unsatisfying, like something was missing. Last year, I received many Christmas texts and only 1 Christmas card in the post, and I felt quite sad. I don’t remember any of the texts now. Soon after Christmas, I deleted the festive messages from my WhatsApp. This year, I am resolved to start writing and sending physical Christmas cards once again. I want the people I care about to know they are special to me, and that the time it takes to personalise each and every card is time I consider very well spent. #christmascards #seasonofgoodwill https://karenmadesingapore.com/ PM: https://m.facebook.com/karenmadesingapore/ email: [email protected] . . . #iwantone #christmascards2018 #holidaywishes #thinkingofyou #acrossthemiles #festivegreetings #karenmadesingapore #singaporecards #singaporesouvenirs #singaporechristmascards #localmementos #localflavour #luxedecor #wallart #madeinsingapore #localcardshop #singaporeinsiders #madeaboutsingapore #littlereddot #atchristmastime #happyholidays

Cambodia. Market 3 This lady is selling ‘prahok’, a dried, salted and fermented fish paste that is used by Khmers to add flavor to most of their everyday cooking. There’s a saying in Cambodia: ‘no prahok, no taste’ which tells you how much Cambodians love it. It does have a distinctively strong smell, rather like strong cheese gone bad and then some! This lady was trying so hard not to smile but loved her picture when I showed it to her afterwards! #cambodia #prahok #khmerfood . . . . . #prahok #traditionalfood #cambodianfood #lfoodie #cambodiatravel #southeastasia #lovecambodia #traveldiary #traveladdict #postcardsfromaroundtheworld #beautifulplaces #wanderlust #instacambodia #destinasian #Indochina #mustvisit #indochina #villagelife #karenmadesingapore

Cockles spread on a flat bed, mixed with fresh red chillies and ‘cooked’ in the fierce heat of the Cambodian sun? It’s called ‘Leah hal’ in Khmer. In this tiny village a bit off the beaten track, it was only 800 riel for a cupful (about 20 US cents), compared to 2000 riel in the big city of Phnom Penh. Seeing my hesitation, a young guy nearby popped one into his mouth and smiled as he walked on.

She was patiently folding back each petal of the lotus flower to reveal the unusual round seed pod in the middle. ‘Oh yes,’ she said laughingly, ‘I have to finish all those flowers at the back too!” Her stall was just by the Buddhist temple and there was a row of stalls like hers selling pink and white lotus flowers, strings of sweet jasmines, joss sticks and bunches of bananas. Two things I learnt about Buddhism today: lotus flowers symbolise purity of mind and body as well as detachment (as water easliy glides off the petals); It is Cambodia’s state religion, with 97% of the population being Buddhist followers . . . . . . #buddhism #siemreap #cambodia #lotus #travelcambodia #southeastasia #lovecambodia #traveldiary #traveladdict #postcardsfromaroundtheworld #beautifulplaces #wanderlust #instacambodia #destinasian #indochina #mustvisit #worldtraveler #karenmadesingapore

Did you know: - Deepavali was first declared a public holiday in Singapore in 1929? - While Little India was always the place to go for festival essentials, the elaborate celebrations as we know it today - the dazzling street lights and magical bazaar- really took off after 1999, when festivities in the area were extended for a whole month. Even if you are not celebrating the Hindu Festival of Lights, you won’t fail to be mesmerized with the celebratory air in Little India. If you haven’t visited yet, go quickly and soak up the amazing atmosphere! . . . #littleindiasingapore #deepavali #celebration #karenmadesingapore #hindufestival #festivaloflights #instasingapore #jewellery #instasg #singaporeinsiders #singaporescenes #singaporesouvenirs #magical #perfectpresents #visit _singapore #littlereddot #singaporeinsta #localgifts #wallart #madaboutsingapore #singapore_today #traveldiary #postcardsfromtheworld

Leaf 2 If you can’t stand spiders, this plant will make you shiver! The aptly named ‘Spiderweb Begonia’ #begoniapaulensis from Brazil not only has round ribbed leaves that resemble spider webs, the white flowers covered in dark red bristles add to the illusion of spiders hanging above their webs. Definitely not a plant for arachnophobes! . . . . . #spiderwebbegonia #plantaholic #unusualplants #leaf #foliage #tropicalplants #madaboutsingapore #instasg #naturephotography #lovenature #naturephotography #natura #pattern #arachnophobia #fotodannatureza #sglife #unlimitedsingapore #wonderlustsingapore #natureza #natur #karenmadesingapore #brazil

JUST IN! Our brand new Singapore- themed festive greeting cards! You’ve been telling us how hard it is to find cute, original, local-themed Christmas cards. And we heard you! Here’s our first design. There may not not be boughs of holly here to deck the halls with but sprays of orchids should do the trick nicely! Look out for our second design tomorrow... https://m.facebook.com/karenmadesingapore Email: [email protected] . . . #festivecards #karenmadesingapore #lovesingapore #instasg #somethingdifferent #singaporeinsiders #singaporesouvenirs #littlereddot #singaporeinsta #visit_singapore #singaporechristmas #madaboutsingapore #acrossthemiles #singaporeinstagram

Favourite Places: Little India 4 The thing I love most about Little India is that it’s not just a tourist attraction; it’s a ‘real’ place where local people go everyday for their fresh vegetables and provisions, their clothes, to get a haircut, have meals, meet their friends... To say it’s an ‘authentic’ place sounds odd but once you’re there, you’ll see what I mean. . #littleindiasingapore #coolcities #yoursingapore #singaporeinsiders #exploresingapore #madaboutsingapore #asianwanderlust #instasg #luvsingapore #lonelyplanet #visit_singapore #sglife #wanderlust #unlimitedsingapore #wonderlustsingapore #beautifulsoutheastasia #singaporeinsta #karenmadesingapore #singapore #thisissingapore

So, so chuffed to have been invited to exhibit our canvasses, prints and products at the American Women’s Association. If you are in the vicinity or have a meeting in their boardroom between now and January 2019, please do take a look. (Thong Teck Building, 15 Scotts Road, #03-01) Karenmade is less than a year old but the support and feedback we’ve received from friends, customers and well-wishers has made me feel so humbled and grateful. From the bottom of my heart, a huge thank you to AWA and GM Sarah Cockerill, and to each and every one of you who has helped with the new ‘baby’. #karenmadesingapore #singaporesouvenirs #awasingapore #americanwomensassociation #canvasses #localgifts #singaporeinsta #singaporetimes #singaporestreets #instagramsingapore #singaporeinsiders #madeaboutsingapore #luvsingapore #perfectpresents #wallart

Favourite Places: Little India 3 Buffalo Road is one of my favourite side streets in Little India, as it’s where most of the flowers stalls are. Long garlands of chilli red roses, saffron marigolds and the snowiest jasmine flowers are woven deftly, effortlessly by young men who seem oblivious to the intoxicating scent of the flowers or the wasps buzzing ominously about. Women buy short strings of jasmine to adorn their hair before they go to the temple; for their favourite deities, they choose loose flowers, garlands or lotus flowers still in bud. I wonder how the flower stalls make a profitable business when they are all in the same row and make similar arrangements but it soon becomes clear as I stand and watch the comings and goings that everybody has their favorite flower man. . #littleindiasingapore #festivaloflights2018 #flowerstalls #buffaloroadsingapore #coolcities #yoursingapore #singaporeinsiders #exploresingapore #madaboutsingapore #asianwanderlust #instasg #luvsingapore #lonelyplanet #deepavali2018 #visit_singapore #sglife #wanderlust #unlimitedsingapore #wonderlustsingapore #totalasia #beautifulsoutheastasia #singaporeinsta #karenmadesingapore #celebration #Singaporetimes

Favourite Places: Little India 2 ‘Mesmerizing’ and ‘magical’ just about describes the annual Deepavali festival market which started recently in Little India. Shoppers, tourists and the camera-toting stood transfixed at the market in Campbell Road, taking in the visual overload! Where to start when surrounded such glitz and razzle dazzle! . #littleindiasingapore #deepavalibazaar2018 #coolcities #yoursingapore #singaporeinsiders #exploresingapore #madaboutsingapore #asianwanderlust #instasg #luvsingapore #lonelyplanet #deepavali2018 #visit_singapore #sglife #wanderlust #unlimitedsingapore #wonderlustsingapore #totalasia #beautifulsoutheastasia #singaporeinsta #karenmadesingapore #celebrations #bling #jewellery #shopping

Favourite Places: Little India 1 If you've not yet been to Little India before, be warned. It is the kind of place that will assault all your senses but will also charm and draw you in at the same time. Colours clash madly, from the buildings, the street-lined stalls and women’s saris. The sound of people buying, selling, haggling, greeting, talking, arguing will ring in your ears. The layered aromas of ground spices, simmering curries and sweet jasmine garlands will prove simply irresistible. You’ll either love the energy and vibrance of the place or hate the bustle and crowds. But to be honest, I’ve yet to hear of anyone saying they’d never want to go back there again. . #littleindiasingapore #coolcities #yoursingapore #singaporeinsiders #exploresingapore #madaboutsingapore #asianwanderlust #instasg #luvsingapore #lonelyplanet #deepavali2018 #visit_singapore #sglife #wanderlust #unlimitedsingapore #wonderlustsingapore #totalasia #beautifulsoutheastasia #singaporeinsta #karenmadesingapore #celebrations #sari #colours

My ‘plantacolhic’ series...10 (‘Plantacolhic’: someone who is equally obsessed with plants and colour) Some plants have all the luck: striking colour, a just-have-to-touch-it texture and an ‘exotic quotient ‘ in spades! The King Kong or Donkey’s Tail heliconia is definitely one of those stand-out plants. . . . . . #plantaholic #heliconia #kingkongheliconia #unusualplants #colours #exoticplants #plantsofinstagram #tropicalplants #instaplants #naturephotography #lovenature #naturephotography #natura #weirdandwonderful #sglife #unlimitedsingapore #wonderlustsingapore #natureza #natur #singaporeinsta #karenmadesingapore #textures
