Had a day out with my girls today :) It was a good considering we got such a great bargain for lunch and also went to GoMA (one of my favourite places to visit!).
We had lunch at Vapianos in the city. It's a great place to dine where the Italian food is cooked on the spot right in front of your eyes *thumbs up*. It also has very fresh and modern decor with little pots of herbs on the table and also a little herb garden on the second floor. The food isn't too expensive but for young and unemployed people, it was a little bit. It was really good that some of us had 'Buy one get one free' and 'Get 25% off' vouchers so in the end we only paid $7.50 each in comparison to paying $20 each if we didn't have the vouchers. Win!
We then walked off the carbs and fullness from lunch by venturing to GoMA. There wasn't any new and special exhibitions but there were still some pretty cool and really weird stuff.
We probably spent an hour in this place. It was technically aimed for children but hey, who says we couldn't get our creativity on and join in the fun too :). The aim was to make bird out of some cardboard, newspaper shreds and paper cups (also using sticky tape, stapler, glue and hole puncher). It has been a while since all of us has had to be creative at an arts and crafts activity and we realised how hard it must be to be a kid and do this everyday. As childish as this may sound, I'm pretty happy with my bird which I named Florence (my dad even offered to put it somewhere special at home lol).
Art is very weird. It's hard to think what goes on in artists' minds to get them to create such bizarre things; but much respect goes to them.
