Married couple's date: Hermes Leather Forever exhibition and dinner at CUT.

Went on a date with my husband tonight.
No, I don't mean putting the kids to sleep at 9pm and sneaking out for a midnight movie, nor that one hour dinner-and-grocery-trip when Adam is at enrichment.
I meant a real, doll-up, wear skyscraper heels, put makeup on, kinda date.
I'm excited as it has been a long while since we went anywhere besides a quick trip to the movies or simply without the kids, for the matter.
There was no occasion too. It was simply a "just because" date for just the two of us as we felt like we could use some time without audiences in the bathroom.
I have to confess - this would be my first time going to Marina Bay Sands, apart from the one time I attended a D&D at the Convention Centre, which doesn't count, really.
We started the evening by strolling over from MBS to Art Science Museum next door, for the Hermes Leather Forever exhibition.

Leather line-up.

Did you know? The Porosus leather has a pore on every single scale (that white pinhole you see).

Ostrich skin has bumps from where the quills were plucked.

Thanks for being so nice, Mr Artisan.

Did you know? It takes averagely 15 hours (subjective to the individual craftsman) to complete a Kelly bag, not including the time spent pick out and prepping the leather and materials!

Here's a video on how a Hermes Kelly bag is made:

After the exhibition, we had dinner at CUT, by Wolfgang Puck - an American steakhouse and bar by an Austrian Michelin chef.

After the heavy dinner, we went downstairs to TWG for some warm tea.

My husband, with his No-shave November, or Movember, is like Dan Bilzerian, minus the cash, private jet, and b*tches girls.
