ZARA culottes  ⏐  Wilfred camisole  ⏐   ZARA heels  ⏐  Céline wallet

Summer culottes are definitely not over, yet. Surprisingly, I am starting to like them despite owning a  few years ago and they have not seen a day of light since. Lately the culottes out on the racks are of a more lightweight nature, which I adore. Of course, I love the structures scuba ones too but the lightweight ones exude the casual vibe that I am so into these days.

THE BELL SLEEVES ARE BACK

ZARA blouse   ⏐   The Editor's Market shorts

Voluminous sleeves are currently having a moment. Unlike its predecessors of subtle batwings, this season is of the statement making, full volume and fluted variety. In terms of the material of the top itself, the ones I come to acquire in the past are of the brocade or velvet nature. This season however, the sleeves are the statement and the material are of a more minimalist resource too. Think neutral tones on linen, poplin or cotton. Although not the most convenient in terms of everyday wearability, the look is extremely flattering in my opinion and it can be worn in all occasions, formal or informal.

The ideal workday lunch situation: The perfect croissant sandwich at your favourite neighbourhood cafe and a good cup of latte. 

In reality, it doesn't happen often. Ideal but lets be realistic.

Any thoughts regarding the infamous quote mentioned? I recently had a casual discussion with a friend over a meal on how heels can sometimes provide the confidence boost needed in a girl. I do agree to this to a certain extent, especially for petite girls. It doesn't mean associating one's confidence level with material items, but just a mere support. For me, eye-contact in a conversation is important and having that at a more similar level physically, solidifies the stand of your thoughts being conveyed.

THE CHOSEN PATHWAY

Thoughts: Personally, I think the word 'future' consists of two forms; the controlled future and the uncontrolled future. The controlled future is the supposed 'future' that you are able to control to a certain extent such as your career, your way of life, your choice of spouse, your social circle etc. The uncontrolled alternative is something out of your control such as sickness, accidents etc. Of course, luck can be a huge factor of both options. No one can sway the path you would have chosen or would like to lead. If it works, great; if it doesn't, try harder or have a change in path. For me, I have an overall picture in regards of my career path and am definitely working towards it. At the end of the day, it's up to you to mould that future of yours and you who decide how it pans out. There are thousands of opinions and thousands of suggestion, but truthfully it is really up to you to shape it into what it would become.

SILKSCREEN

Silkscreen printing is one of the funnest thing I have done in awhile. Given the fact that weekend days can be a bore, this particular activity feeds the need for something more interesting. Instead of going for meals or shopping with your girl friends, why not try something a little more productive? The first and last time I witnessed a silkscreen process professionally done was two years ago at a Hermès exhibition. That was something that got many of us there in awe. The average scarf has 30 colours on it. To put things into perspective, imagine a design of 30 colours equates to around 600 hours work engraving 30 films. Comparing to the one I did for a little more than an hour, it was nothing. But the workshop was a good experience, and definitely a weekend well spent.

Birthday lunch, birthday fun, birthday line, birthday caffein...what else?

I tried a new lunch and bakery joint at an affluent area of Kuala Lumpur with some gorgeous ladies and it reminded me of a cross between an old school espresso bar and a French bakery. Farmer's bread, double shot espresso and that Vespa parked by the patio; it was the perfect place to be after a heavy downpour.

Triangl  -  Brigitte 'American Girl'

The lovely people from Triangl sent me a box of beach-ready goodies and they involve crochets and denim. How cute are these Brigitte bikini crochet and neoprene in light denim? There are tonnes of crochet swimwear in the market, but denim aren't very common. To say it all, it is very refreshing to see denim on swimwear because it is considerably unconventional to have that. Well, unconventional can be conventional.

I remember when I was a kid during one of those vacation days, my mother made me wear this denim one-piece swimwear that I absolutely hated due to its extreme discomfort. Fast forward 18 years or so, here I am talking about denim swimwear and its appeal. How times have changed.

BAKAR Kuala Lumpur

Few months back, I tried out a new (OK, maybe not so new anymore) barbecue joint in town; interestingly named BAKAR, the Malay word for burn. One thing about roasts are their tendency to get overcooked, and I am happy to say this joint does a job with their roast chicken with pickled radish. Anything with radish in it is a win for me.

SENSUALITY

DIPTYQUE

Unique, intimate & evolving. Nothing beats a Diptyque candle burning, melting the minerals packed waxes, and unleashing an indescribable sensual scent throughout the confinement of the space you are at. It is advocating luxury candle craftsmanship at its highest form, demonstrating the art of hand made candles in the most appropriate place.

Flowers? Great. Bespoke flowers? Even better.

I received my specially made 'happy bunch' from a few of the loveliest and non-practical people I know.
Common interest, tick! Sorry but being practical is boring.
