The Dragon Playground in Toa Payoh was the location for our first ever photoshoot. It's one of the oldest (been around since 1973!) and most distinctive playgrounds in Singapore, and we thought that it would be a suitable place to take a set of photos that were representative of what we wanted our chalkboards to stand for - something which despite having been around for a long time, retains its charm to the present day.
The objective of the shoot was to capture our products in an outdoor environment. After a slow start, we began to get the hang of things and eventually managed to get quite a few good shots. Here are some of the pictures we took that day:
All in all, it was a good day for us!
"Once they all believed in dragons
When the world was fresh and young,
We were woven into legends,
Tales were told and songs were sung,
We were treated with obeisance,
We were honored, we were feared,
Then one day they stopped believing -
On that day, we disappeared.Now they say our time is over
Now they say we've lived our last,
Now we're treated with derision
Where we once ruled unsurpassed.
We must make them all remember,
In some way we must reveal
That our spirit lives forever -
We are dragons! We are real!"

Chalkboard- Is something that we've been searching for (online, in furniture shops, etc.) to place in our new home. And I meant a huge enough board that could fill an empty wall. Why a chalkboard? It's decorative; gives a tinge of country feel yet contemporary and at the same time old school (how ironic, but true!); it's a space for expression and loving notes (plus chalk markers are available now, bid goodbye to dusty chalks); it's awesome. However, we've not been able to find one that looks like THE ONE. Even finding a supplier for such huge chalkboards has been really tough. So yes, that just got us inspired to start Chalk'let- for those who appreciate the beauty of chalkboards.
Every product in Chalk'let is handmade with love. Hence, if what you are looking for could not be found in our shop or you would like us to customize one of our chalkboards, please do not hesitate to drop us a note, and we will do our best to help fulfill your dear request. We will update this space to keep you posted on what's going on, and what's to come, so stay tuned, and in the meantime, shop on!
We make chalkboards with love. Join us on our journey as we explore all things Chalk'let.
