Second Look

This is the second look for the photoshoot that I did. Actually i do not consider myself as a model at all. I love doing fashion shoots and stuff but considering my built and experience, I really do not call myself a model. Nevertheless I enjoyed the styling process of this shoot and the process of the shoot.

Anyways, the word second look just carried me to another meaning of this word. The idea of being given second looks. Obviously I get that a lot here in Germany because even though there are Asians (a broad term by itself) we are pretty much a minority as compared to other ethnicities here. I am not used to getting a second look by others, it makes me really uncomfortable and self conscious, but then I myself am guilty of giving other people second looks. It often stems from curiosity instead of a vicious intent. The other day, my friend said to me that if she saw me on the street, she would also probably give me a second look because she liked my jacket. I guess its all in my head, its how i perceive these looks and how much I want to allow it to affect it at the end of the day.

The window seat

Time is always running dry
It hurts how you let it slip by
as you do, so do I.

By the window looking out
Every shadow belongs to you
Searching for answer to my doubt
Came only silence when the promise was due.

Ride me into your darkness, into your eternal night.
In every laughter, a soft echo of weariness and pain.
Tightly against my heart, carrying all the weight.
Never giving up on you, there’s only one straight lane.

Autumn in Germany

Although Bayreuth feels like a full fledged winter right now, I thought its good to put these pictures up before it gets even colder. For me, this is my first ‘proper’ Autumn because obviously we only have one season – summer, in Singapore. Also, Autumn doesn’t look as prominent in Hong Kong as it does in Germany.

When I was young, people always asked me what my favourite season is. I always said autumn, with calendar pictures in my head without actually experiencing one before. Now I can be sure that its my favourite season. Many people who grew up with experiencing autumn every year stop marvelling at its beautiful. I hope I wouldn’t stop almost accidentally walking into a pole whilst admiring the autumn coloured trees lined streets.

Under The GreenWood Tree

Under the Greenwood Tree

Under the greenwood tree
Who loves to lie with me,
And turn his merry note
Unto the sweet bird’s throat,
Come hither, come hither, come hither:
Here shall he see
No enemy
But winter and rough weather.

Who doth ambition shun,
And loves to live i’ the sun,
Seeking the food he eats,
And pleas’d with what he gets,
Come hither, come hither, come hither:
Here shall he see
No enemy
But winter and rough weather.

Music also by Quilter, after ‘Fear no more the Heat of the sun’ here
Because its a collection of 5 Shakespeare’s poems written as music by Quilter. Enjoy!
It’s peace and happiness i now seek, come sing sweetest song. Do come.
Can’t wait for Christmas and i’m spending New Year in Hongkong this year! I’m so excited! X

DIY Studded Sneakers

When my B&W oxfords completely fell apart last Sunday, i knew i had no choice but to get a new pair of shoes immediately. There was no way i could make it home without shoes. So i walked into NewLook & gotten my hands on this pair of Hudson & Rose maroon high cut sneakers.

Sneakers are so casual, so to add that extra oomph ! to my sneakers i decided to add some studs on it! Although the studs i ordered arrived smaller then i expected, the result was still fantastic!

Here are the things you would need :

1) A pair of worn/new sneakers (obviously)

2) Studs (7-12mm)

3) Hot glue / fabric glue

4) Flat tip screw driver/ penny

5) Black / white felt fabric

*the black fabric in the picture is not felt, i changed to felt fabric afterwards. 

* The maroon color turns out really bright in the picture.

1) Untie the lace before studding. (This sounds like common sense)

2) Starting studding, and remember to plan your desired patterns ahead!

3) Get a flat-tip screw driver/ penny to help you secure the studs.

(DON’T USE YOUR FINGER, YOU WILL GET HURT!)

.

4) Measure the area/shape of your studs after finish your pattern, and cut the same pattern on the felt fabric.

5) Using a hot glue gun, stick the fabric felt where the stud edges are exposed inwardly.

& you’re done!  Fini! 

Have Fun! ~
