L'ile aux Ashby first interview

It was a windy evening while walking towards Rowell Road, the place where the interview will be conducted with Rage from MAAD. We were informed that MAAD will be coming up with its own issue in the magazines and we're gonna appear on the first issue!

Along the way, we just couldn't resist and stopped by at one of the Indian stalls for some pratas and a cup of "Teh-Tarik" (known as the Indian tea in S'pore). After fulfiling our cravings, we headed for our destination.

Upon arrival at the gate of the 2 storey high building, we were introduced to some of Rage's friends who are tenants in the house. Most of them are involved in design fields and you can say they are all MAAD ppl who are willing to do anything outgrageous for ART.

As Rage was in a midst of the interview with the MakiSquarePatch , we began to explore the place and found out the backyard was full of graffitis on the walls. Guess what we found? ?? ------ White Dot Bobby was featured on the wall! Haha.. It was done tastefully by Candy previously and heard from Rage she' nearly wanted to continue drawing on the rest of the streets...

While waiting in the kitchen, sitting at the old square wooden table with fabulous lightings hanging, we enjoy the whole atmosphere, with music played from the apple laptop, blasting from speakers together with taste of wine and the nice local food --------> satays!!! And they're yummy!

Time for interview!! The whole process turned out to be casual and we really like that.
Rach did an informal interview with us and she had it going smoothly and also recorded down our conversations so that it doesnt turn out to be too cheesy yet original. Perhaps it's due to her warm personality that we dont feel pressurized at all throughout the process.. "Hey Rach, nice gal you are ! and keep it going !!"
Not forgeting the new friends we've meet there, we hereby wish you all the best to your future endeavors ....!
P.S.It's been raining these days, be careful not to let the cold catch u ya.

Best regards,
L'ile aux Ashby Team

Manifest Your Inner Urges and Soul Whisperings

There are times in our lives when all the signs seem to be pointing us in a particular direction. Our thoughts and dreams are echoed in the songs and stories we hear and the media we see. Maybe the message we are getting from the universe doesn't even make sense in the“real” world, but somewhere inside, these urges feel right. Maybe you feel you are being told to move to a new city although your life where you are is just fine. Or maybe you feel the desire to pursue a new direction in your career when it never really interested you before. When we spend time getting in touch with our higher selves, our intuition sends us directives to lead us to become our best and most fulfilled selves. And when we are open and listening, the next step is to take action and go for it.

Once we make the decision to pursue our inner urgings, the universe sets into motion the means for all sorts of details to fall into place. A sense of peace will come over us, because we know that any questions will no longer make us wonder if our dreams are possible, but how to make them happen. Instead of deterring us from our goal, these questions only serve to clarify our focus to move us forward. We need not throw caution to the wind to follow our dream. The positive shift in our energy affects everything around us. Like a rush of water, it goes ahead to clear debris from our path so that we can go forward. Our new attitude also attracts like minded people. Sometimes even the most unlikely angels arrive to help us along our way with the information and support we need.

Wherever your dreams are pointing you today, take a step. Take action and manifest your inner urges and soul whisperings.

And this is how we began..

It is every lady’s wish to be their best and definitely, dress their best.
L’ile Aux Ashby (pronounced as “L” or Ashby) is where tailor made dresses were catered for up to date’s working class ladies who likes to, and sees the need to doll up.
Due to frequent overseas trips by our designers, most of the fabrics were gathered over the countries. The selection of unique color and prints of fabrics end up fruitfully done being the “one of a kind dress” in limited sizes.
We hope this is a place where fashionistas enjoy shopping as they will be sure not to be caught wearing the same designs as their girlfriends. : )

with L’ile aux, we hope this is a place where fashionistas enjoy shopping as they will be sure not be caught wearing the same designs as their girlfriends :)
