Cottlesloe Beach

Just last two mondays, it was the long awaited Labour Day and it happens to be my very first public holiday ever since I start working so can you imagine how excited I was?! I didn't used to have the privilege of having public holidays during my days in university because it simply does not exist within the university's context booooo! :roll: Had a really good breakfast of Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon at a nearby cafe which is sinfully delicious but it really isn't a good idea if you're heading to the beach in a bikini! :shock: The temperature climbed up to 36degrees on that day so it was pretty good for a tan but got more than I asked for in the end! Skin got burnt and I looked like I've paint part of my body with brown paint. :evil: Coincidentally there was an art exhi[...]

Navojo Prints

If you take a look around, you'll notice that in the shopping malls, most of the retail stores are filled with prints in any sorts of colour you can ever imagine. Even most of the designers' collections were print frenzy for the Spring/Summer 2011 season and still going on strong for now if I dare say. When I was working in Zara a few months back, it was an endless torture every week as the latest pieces are coming in twice a week and we are forced to remember every single piece of them! Being voted as one of the person with the weakest resistance e.v.e.r, it's just a matter of time or an intense mental battle before i get my hands on this Navojo printed pants back home as I've been lusting over it ever since!! I guess luck was on my side as it was put onto the sale racks after[...]

Of Sheer Maxi and Stripes

I used to envision myself as a workaholic or somewhat when I grow up and start working, but guess whose the one who runs out of the office as soon as the clock strikes 5! I've survived 3 weeks of work but the workload has just started rolling in yesterday and I can sadly tell you that my brain is temporarily damaged. I couldn't even tell out simple conversations or that I'm supposed to put soap into the washing machine when I do the laundry. Kids, stay away from accounting while you can. LOL! :roll: Anyway, as we were staying in a hotel just right behind Bugis Street, I've been wanting to see the markets and have a look at what little nitty bitty things they would be selling but my mum hesitated and told everyone that it will be just like any night market you'll see in Malays[...]

Style Diary : I'm an orange!

On my second day in Singapore, we decided on going to Marina Bay Sands as there was so much hype about it when it first opened and still does! We took a taxi ride after the peak office time to escape the extra fee, GOSH there's so many taxi fee rules to the extent that it's more complicated than my history books! I was starving by the time we reached so we had our mini dim sum at their food court. I don't know if it's just my family or what but we LOVE Singapore's food court so much more than Malaysia's one and that's where we go to at least half the trip to fill our grumbling tummies! I'm so in love CURRENTLY OBSESSED with bright colours at the moment, it's just a phase that I go through every now and then but sometimes, I would come up with themes for m[...]

Style Diary : The Big Black Bow

So I've gotten myself a job at a relatively small company and I've got nothing much to do till next week!! Said by the manager himself of course. So here I am, drawing butterflies on scrap papers, finding the best fashion collection photos to put as my desktop wallpaper and blogging. It sure makes me feel like I'm the worst employee ever I swear! Right after my cousin's my family and I drove to Singapore right away the next day! It's been years since we've drove there on our own and it was quite a challenge figuring out our directions eeeks! As I'm in a hot and humid weather, I try to keep my outfit fuss-free and cooling at all times. When I saw this suede bow collar on the internet last year, I fell in love with it as I've always been fascinated with bows and with my lat[...]
