"Mistaken for a black-and-white bungalow for more than 50 years, the historic 1868 Burkill Hall at the Singapore Botanic Gardens will soon be returned to its original white palette. This structure is actually an Anglo-Malayan plantation-style house. It is the last one standing in the region, and possibly the world."
Oh my, who knew that a Google search for "black and white Singapore" would lead us to such a discovery. We're not too sure if its bnw anymore, but hey you can go check it out with your other half on our behalf because apparently this is also a really famous wedding venue ;)

Now it is your time to sell. With The Kint Story, we want to build a community for girls to feel comfortable selling and buying from each other.
We want you to share your love for fashion in a fun, unique & personal way.
What to sell?
This is the time to sort through your closet to find that few items that you know deserves a new home. Since The Kint Story curates what goes online, choosing items that eventually won’t sell will be a waste of your time.
Do a quick scan on these items and make sure they are in good condition.
What we reject
At The Kint Story we want to create that same experience people have when they shop on any other fashion e-commerce. We reject any items that are out of style and/or in poor condition. Of course, we also understand that fashion is subjective and to each his/her own. This is why a general rule of thumb is to ask yourself “is this outfit something I want to be seen in?” if you answer is “OMG YES?!” then list them, hun.
All photos should be modelled and sellers should display the item as accurately as possible. Do take the photos in SQUARE whenever possible and submission should include the following:
- Front Shot (Full body shot)
- Slide shot (yes, you can choose your better side for this one)
- Back shot (to bring the sexy back)
- Detail shot (to highlight the texture)
- Optional Detail shot(s) (any intricate details, any defects, any you want people to notice)
Our thrift queen has a really great video to teach you how to take photos so if you are keen to learn more, click here.
