Off shoulder frenzy X Thrift finds series 1

Sorry for the lack of updates, in all honesty i really do this blog for myself so i never truly feel obliged to fulfill or attract more readers. I do this because i enjoy it and i do not have to explain myself further actually. Nevertheless, i have been really busy getting my life back on track after falling ill and also trying my best to have an enriching summer.

 Here is a weekend outfit from 2 weeks back while i was on my way to get BLT burgers with my friend who came back from UK.I’m back to the thrift store this summer so i will include one thrifted item in every outfit post if possible this summer.

Thrifted piece : Black Maxi skirt with diagonal thread patterned detail

Vintage : Bag hand down by my mom.

Belt : DIY Ribbon

Off shoulder top ; F21 , Shoes ; Pull & Bear

I cannot get over the off shoulder design, to me it gives out a really feminine vibe and sexy vibe and yet you’re not actually revealing anything indecent.

Summer Picnic

I miss these girls so much. We had such a lovely picnic back in Singapore, where almost had the entire place to ourselves. The weather was perfect. Thank you girls for planning this and spending time with me.  I feel so happy when i am close to nature as i live right in the city, the hustle and bustle, the smoke really chokes me.

There’s nothing better than cold cream on a summer day.

Ending with Some Love ~!

SummerTime Blackness

I’m not a fashion blogger nor a narcissist  but occasionally i do take out my camera to recreate images i have in my head. Sometimes the images have meaning to them, sometimes its better not to assume any. I will continue to to take pictures , of myself and others to express a state of mind. An abstract idea. An emotion. I hope you wouldn’t mind this. Sometimes, it is a form of release for me.

The falling, not fallen.

Ever since returning to Hong Kong, i have fallen ill again. A sudden fever and then a series of rather violent coughs. Frightening strangers who take their seat beside me on public transport, and still dragging myself to work despite knowing my that my body belongs to the bed with a cup of warm water by my side. I hope desperately to recover soon so that i may get more things done.

And the rain just begin , a windy night to sleep in indeed.


Sabah Summer 2014 Part II

We took a private speed boat to an island called the Mamutik island which is only 5 minutes away from our resort and there my dad and i went snorkeling. The water is extremely clear and the swimming amongst literally a sea of vibrant colored fishes and some of pure silver feels surreal. Although i am also aware that the corals there are beginning to suffer as they may have artificially added sand to their beach. In the sea, you feel truly like a stranger wandering among common sea folks.

I also convinced my dad to accompany me to one of the sea activity called the ‘fun tube’ where you lie down chest down on a round inflated tube and you get dragged along at great speed by the speed boat in the open sea. You are very much at the mercy of the guys handling the speed boat, and they laugh wickedly as they make sharp turns and watch you struggle to stay ‘on board’ the tube with water splashing on you. I managed to stay on board the tube because i imagine sharks waiting right beneath my tube, waiting for the appearance of my vulnerable leg to accidentally dip into the water.

Getting our gears on at our resort

Looking back at our resort from the sea.

‘Adult’ games

That night, my mom was feeling better and so we had a really nice dinner by the sea.

I truly had a great time with my parents and especially bonding with my dad. I miss them so much now that i am back in Hong Kong :(

Sabah Summer 2014 Part 1

Sabah. Shangri-La Tanjung Aru Resort. Handicraft market. 

“I was right not to be afraid of any thief but mysef, who will end by leaving me nothing”- Theft, Anne Porter

I had a very relaxing time at Sabah, unwinding and just being quiet and composed. The scenery is breathtaking and the people are so friendly. This place makes me fall in love with the world again.

Photos taking you through my first day there.

Reading by the pool alone after breakfast, a visit to the handicraft market with my dad, and swimming at the beach in the resort and watching the sunset.

This place is so close to being a paradise.
