First and foremost, Happy Chinese New Year!

Ice sculptures are normally the ones you see at wedding where there would be a swan or something near the punch bowl, but that aren't the ones that I'm gonna write about here. I headed down to Singapore in December as part of my usual trips to visit my friends over there. There is always a new adventure that I go through, and as for this time, I was able to visit a showcase called 2 Degree Ice Art 2013/2014.

It is the largest ice art exhibition in Singapore yet, and there are 30 amazing sculptures to be seen. I headed over there with Ying Zi, and one thing that was epic, I managed to pass off as a student, so I enjoyed pretty good rates for it! We were given free gloves, and I rented one of the winter coats to keep myself warm inside since its about -15 degrees celcius in there! Brrrr!

It is open till 28th February 2014, so do head over there if you're interested in looking at these ice carvings and sculptures! More details here: http://www.sistic.com.sg/events/ice2014 


Here are some of the ice sculptures in there which I've taken! 
(its pretty dim in there, and I was using my phone to take the photos. so don't mind the lack of quality compared to the photos I take using my dslr)

Soon after that we headed for a nice restaurant at Orchard road to end the day (can't remember the name of it though). It serves really simple food, but has a great taste to it! Its "sandwich like" with good presentation, and condiments which compliment each other
