An Exercise In Trivial Pursuits

Fatshion, Food & Frivolities – Life in Las Vegas & Singapore

My Stuff: Dragon Brooch


I wanted to share an adorable new brooch I picked up for $27 today at a quaint bookshop called WOODS IN THE BOOKS.

This is one in a series inspired by old public playgrounds in Singapore (way before the safe rubber mats and plastic slides; when we had sand and tiles and wood and cast iron to play amongst).

I’d like to collect them all but, it’d be too excessive, no? Maybe I’ll go back and buy more as gifts for friends who’d appreciate nostalgia and quirky accessories as much as I do.

Here are some links to said playgrounds:

I left Singapore for the US of A in 2013 and now live in Las Vegas with my indie game dev husband and our son Gummi Gumdrop. I am also probably much older than you think I am.
