CHINESE INSPIRATIONS

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterPin on Pinterest

Singapore’s CHINATOWN is a bustling, colorful and crowded place. It is full of an inspiration – from good food, through visiting temples to shops full of exciting things from tourist nonsense like magnets and t-shirts “I love SG” to calligraphy, trade in traditional Chinese medicine, where they prepare healing potions by mixing herbs, spices, leather snake and similar exotic ingredients. You can buy here kimono, fans, chopsticks to eat and similar traditional products.

CHINA TOWN v Singapure je rušné, farebné a preplnené miesto. Plné inšpirácie – od dobrého jedla, cez návštevu chrámov až po obchodíky plné rôznych zaujímavých vecí od turistických nezmyslov ako magnetky a tričká „I love SG“ až po kaligrafov, obchody s tradičnou čínskou medicínou, kde sa vyrábajú liečivé elixíry miešaním byliniek, korenia, kože hada a podobných exotických ingrediencií. Kúpite tu kimono, vejáre, paličky na jedenie a podobný tradičný tovar.

I walked away from there with the red fan and the top inspired by the dress Cheongsam. Cheongsam is a body-hugging dress with stand-up collar. In Mandarin is known as qipao. This dress has been used in China since the 14th century and were popular in the 17th century during the reign of the Qing Dynasty. The modern face of this dress is originated in Shanghai and popularized by the actresses in the 30s of the last century.

Ja som si odtiaľ odniesla červený vejár a top inšpirovaný šatami Cheongsam. Cheongsam sú šaty tesne obopínajúce telo so stojačikom. V mandarínskej čínštine sú tieto šaty známe ako qipao. Tento odev sa používal v Číne od 14. storočia a boli obľúbené v 17. storočí za vlády dynastie Čching. Moderná podoba týchto šiat vznikla v Šanghaji a zpopularizovali ich herečky v 30. rokoch minulého storočia.

      I am not very brave with bold red color on my lip too. In fact I combined very bold red color lipstick with brown lip glow. Thank you Samantha for stopping by. o)
