Very Singaporean Accessories!
As per my previous post on Jooix.com x Chalone event, these are some of the fun Singapore-style accessories I bought! They are soooo fun and so very Singaporean! They make really good gifts too! Indulge in life’s little pleasures with Museum Label, a brand and retail concept created by the National Heritage Board. Each merchandise tells a Singapore story and is inspired by Singapore’s national collection, our heritage of art and culture. I can’t wait to visit the boutique itself. Sharing with you what I bought:
Kan Cheong Spider Watch! This is a colloquial term of Hokkien origin used by many Singaporeans whom many of us are familiar with. This is use to describe a person who is always anxious and constantly on their toe. One super fun item to have.
‘Choi! Touchwood!” is a phrase you’ll commonly hear in Singapore. Like in many cultures, Singaporean Chinese believe that to touch wood (or to knock on wood) will chase away and prevent bad luck. ‘Choi’ is a colloquial term of Cantonese origin with the same meaning.
I bought this Chapalang bag! Chapalang is a Singaporean slang for a collection of mixture of random things. As you can tell from the bag prints, there is indeed a mixture of mostly found items in a Singaporean bag!
Peranakan Tile Badges
Bak Chang Five Stones! Very creative packaging! Five stones is a childhood game most of us are familiar with and here they are being tied to look like dumpling.
Kueh Tutu is a traditional Singaporean delicacy. Made primarily with rice flour or glutinous rice flour, the light snack contains either ground peanut and sugar or coconut. This looks exactly like the real thing except this is not edible and is an eraser.
