So it's nice to see how far Naiise has come ever since I first heard of it last year when Amanda (their marketing director!) contacted me for an interview. Ever since then it's been really sweet of them to always invite me back for the launches of their pop-up shops - this time their biggest and most ambitious yet: Naiise@Central!

Impressive sign in front of an impressive escalator leading up to their store at Clarke Quay Central!

We get bounced at the door.

Just kidding, we go in smoothly - and get our goodie bags (more about that later)!

Hello Jiehui! She's my plus one invitee for today. I realise I always bring a different girlfriend for every Naiise pop-up store. Equitable hor.

Jiehui and I make a beeline for the back of the store since we heard there was free food and are pleasantly surprised by the pretty colours and set up of... Chikuwa Tei! Best event food EVER. We have a choice between the bara chirashi or the chirashi don; and chawanmushi. I deeply regret not taking a second helping looking at this picture now, sobz.

After we've had our fill of food, it's time to explore the store, mingle with the Naiise staff and vendors present! Naiise is all about good design - with a local twist. It's amazing to think that there are so many artists in Singapore trying to get their names out there and how Naiise is part of it all by creating a platform to help them make design more accessible to us all.

More exploring around their massive store (which, by the way, is open till the end of the year!) and yes - the goodie bags! Totally wasn't expecting them but they were chocked full with $150.00 worth of goodies from generous sponsors. Found things like cute socks, cold press coffee, kitschy printed notebooks, flatlay-worthy post cards, mango jam, and more!!! I think every goodie bag had different things inside - so exciting to unpack later on.

Get mahself some free booze and a seat on a super plush beanbag from SoftRockLife.

Free drinks samples from Daily Juice. This one is Pepple Mint, a mixture of peppermint, apple and pineapple! Nubbad. Very cleanse. Much healthy.

Thanks for the invite and congratulations to the Naiise team for really outdoing themselves this time! Do drop by their store before the year end - there's definitely something for everyone!
