The ravenously sensual mind of Alvelyn seems only to be appeased by her immense ability to express herself through photography and other artistic mediums. From the turbulent depths of her emotional seas comes the first of a quarterly publication dedicated to celebrating the beauty of a Singaporean girl. It’s a riveting piece of work, one which treads recklessly on the precipice of controversiality. Provocative images work together with emotive writings to inspire in readers a sense of rousing freedom, like a rattlesnake drunkenly waking from its century old slumber.
The pages reek, bleed and smell of the truest unyielding essence of life: Of adventure, discovery, curiosity, ecstasy and wild abandon. Like the out raised hand of a dealer (or Morpheus), it urges you to relinquish all control or dominion over your desires and to entertain your impulses. ‘My diary of a Singapore Chiobu’ is a vortex of wanton spontaneity and an unrestrained lust for life. It is quiet and then curious, engrossed and then ecstatic; retrospect in a cyclic dance with the carnal nature of the Singaporean female.
“Live with an energy brighter than the biggest star / feel for the world, & love all its flavors / hold, touch, trace gently the precious treasure your life is. ”
