Clowny

After sporting this pair of culottes, I knew I can’t get enough of this 00s-inspired pants; especially during Chinese New Year when the stomach desires deeply for an abundance of comfortable space after all that gluttony. This unique piece brings with it a totally new character of its own compared to the last; with its circus of colors and clown-y stripes that bring life to every house visit – it was […]

Shopping Tips When Traveling

It is hard to separate women from shopping when they’re traveling. However, as we all know, it is different when shopping at a foreign country versus our own – the currency is different, there is Value Added Tax (VAT), sometimes haggling is required . . . Recently, I was invited by Bella @ NTV7 as one of the panel travel bloggers to share my traveling tips on the show. Mine […]

Back at my small town, one can easily look overdressed; especially when the scorching hot weather plays a role in determining the yards of cloth one should wear. With that said, I kept my CNY eve outfit stylish yet casual with this pairing of baggy T, flow-y culottes that […]

Tokyo at Night

Started another bright new day with a hearty bento set at Kyoto Station that hustled humbly with every bite of matcha KitKat. Tokyo was the only thing on my mind that morning. All that’s left was to embark on the swift change from this beautiful cultural town to the strong pulsing city that’s waits for no one. Lunch cost: 1665 ¥ Cost | Bullet train from Kyoto – Tokyo: 27, 820 ¥ […]

Kyoto Travel Guide

My night arrival at Kyoto was greeted by a huge confetti made of metal cold rain. While rushing into a cab, I banged my head on the car so hard I saw a flash of white light coming from inside my head. I can’t quite explain, but it was SO painful I literally COL (Cried Out Loud) at my clumsilliness (clumsiness + silliness) while the driver, who heard the bang, was more in-shock […]
