Travel
Tuscany

i would pretty much describe a road trip through Tuscany like a journey through two wedded worlds of an Aesop fable and one of my favorite paintings, Vincent Van Gogh’s “Les Vessenots” en Auvers from 1890. Its very existence is made up of all the compulsory elements from the romanticism era, especially the clouds. Throw a glance at any corner and you get a different painting telling you a different […]

Pisa

The weather in Venice was manipulated ‘up there’ like it didn’t welcome us at all. The moment we hopped on a bus to leave, Mr. glorious sun peaked through cloud pockets to shine ever so brightly. Big Guy and i had a moment staring at each other when the golden rays fell onto our faces thinking, “what the fuck!” before i made it verbal. Lucky for us, those were the […]

Top Gun

A far cry from Venice, Pisa was all about clear blue skies above our heads and a cheery sunny weather. Needless to say, i took advantage of it with an elevated casual take on a vintage T + denim pencil skirt equation. If this tee looks like it has been through hard times, with me it certainly did. That’s why i think it deserves a vacation, too. The highlight of […]

Venice : Love Lock

There is nothing quite like waking up in Venice. For a moment you wonder if you are in a dream; you even consider pinching yourself for a reality check. Then you look outside the window and learn to accept the fact that life can indeed be a fantasy!, especially when you only have one goal to accomplish for the day: go on an adventure. Not just any adventure, but one […]

Iced Pink

i had been looking forward and counting endless days to the weekend; simply to spend Saturday doing whatever i love (i.e. not doing anything), and Sunday to pre-write the week’s blog posts. Alas it passed without the most of all that and worse, with a nose so blocked anyone would mind having one. Chinese New Year is over and so does my “#CNY #OOTD” series posts. i am looking forward […]

Summer Raincoat

Today’s street style look is one of my all-time favorites – a combination of unique neutral pieces in never / rarely seen before materials. This thousand bucks top really got me with its unexpected cutouts, jigsaw-ish design and fabricated gloss. Don’t even get me started on the skirt – plastic-y on the outside but soft-skinned on the inside; it’s such a joy to wear. Don’t underrate the shoes (you might […]

Life Is A Beach

Since i was young, there is only one place i love to be – the beach. Every chinese new year, dad would drive us up north all the way from south to Kuala Terengganu. Every trip, i would persuade beg the adults to take me and my cousins to a beach called Batu Buruk. There were always very few who volunteered an offer, always insufficient seats to fit everyone, but more […]
