ASOS WHITE DRESS  GIVENCHY BAG ⏐  MICHAEL KORS MULES

The truth is I am not good at certain things, but I know what I am good at. The thing is whether I am willing to give so easily or persevere a little more. My emotional well being has been pretty unpredictable lately, as for the past few months. Perhaps, I have forgotten what the meaning of 'stress' feels like. I have forgotten how it affects me emotionally and physically. Some people take stress well, some not so. I would say I am an 'in-between' and this would explain my occasional mood swings that might go from a high to an extreme low. I am telling myself care a little less, laugh a little more, and perhaps lose some weight in the process. Admittedly how unhealthy this would sound, I am certain there is a negative correlation in terms of weight and stress level for me.

AÇAI BOWLS, NO YOU DIDN'T!

Friday, February 3, 2017

AÇAI BOWLS


Doubted by Harper's Bazaar as one of the food you should stop eating for 2017. Leah Kaufman, a registered dietician at NYU Langone's Weight Management Program stated that açai itself may have a lot of antioxidant properties, but one cup of just the açai has about six grams of sugar and 30 grams of carbs. However, the problem is an açai bowl does not contain just the açai fruit but other add ons too that may contribute to a higher sugar content. Basically, it is not as extremely healthy as it perceived. So what's next down the superfoods trend?

LUNAR NEW YEAR

Donning new clothes is pretty significant during the lunar season, though it has never been a tradition of mine to do or my family. Initially it was, before we started wearing the new clothes before the prosperous day. This time around, the only thing that is entirely unworn was this pair of Valia Gabriel sandals. I foresee a 10-year relationship with this pair. Greek sandals are the best! My last ones lasted more than 10 years before they broke.

Brunch, playing tourist with another Penangite, and coffee runs. The Chinese New Year celebrations were a good break before the storm kicks back in. I managed to visit some converted century old shophouses. With the creaks of the old wooden floors and colonial courtyards, it sorts of transports you back in time, yet it still feels very current especially the bars. Sometimes, I have this thought wear I would convert one of these shophouses and start a retail or f&b business of my own. Wouldn't that be nice?

PYJAMA DRESSING IN EVERLANE

EVERLANE DRESS ⏐ BOTTEGA VENETA SUNGLASSES    PROENZA SCHOULER BAG ⏐  MICHAEL KORS MULES

Some sort of pyjama dressing. If I can be in bed all day, I think I would. During the short timeframe where Everlane temporarily joined the international delivery bandwagon, I got extremely excited because it is definitely one of the retailers that I admire for its philosophy and design aesthetics. Think transparency and classic originality.

BEST OF BOTH WORLDS. DOES IT EXIST?

CLUB MONACO TOP⏐  JOE FRESH JOGGERS ⏐ BOTTEGA VENETA SUNGLASSES    LOUIS VUITTON BAG ⏐  FRANCO SARTO SANDALS

While I was back on a monthly trip to my parent's, we decided to head to the historical fort of the island just because it had been THAT LONG. Well, because there is a new restaurant inside too. When I am back in Penang, it feels sort of like an alternate reality, my safe zone. Sometimes though, raw emotions of yesteryears tend to be brought up and then you wonder the meaning of best of both worlds. Does it exist?

UNINTENTIONAL TWINNING

Saturday, January 7, 2017

 photo IMG_0128_zpsdejchanx.jpg

Unintentional twinning, and I am always not ready for a photo. What are the odds when you have the same color coordination on with a girl pal for lunch. A complete combination - white top, grey pants and black mules. While at that and since I have short people syndrome, I am definitely trying to tiptoe.

COS TOP⏐  UNIQLO JEANS⏐  FENDI BAG ⏐  TODS MULES


It's going to be a great day. I say this to myself everyday. I say this to myself while waking up. I say this to myself while I decide what to wear. I say this to myself while painting my face. I say this to myself while at work. Tomorrow will be a great day. I say this to myself going to bed.

1.  
What was I doing in the afternoon on the last day of 2016? Sipping tea, eating some overpriced Japanese cake and watching The Girl On The Train.
2. Vital rejuvenation, and still loving the nails.
2. ... oh and did I mention my new chrome nails too?
3. Non-working day lunch with @dorothycaitlin , but the term 'non-working day' is only applicable to me.
4. Christmas shopping situation with the beau: Let's go to Hackett since I have 130 bucks worth of vouchers. Oh snap, only applicable for non-sale items.
5. 2016 was very significant to me in so many levels. From my family help of 12 years leaving in exchange for the bliss of marriage life, to my 15 year old dog's passing. From putting aside fashion and exploring a new career path, to renting my own place in the city. For all it's worth, good and bad, it has been an emotional roller coaster ride. Thanks but I am ready to move on.
6. 1/3 of VLT KL team BMW, with another one behind the lens.
7. Not going home for Christmas, but home is where the heart is.
8. I am pretty much a post holiday mess, but in a good way.
9. Time for some solitude.
10. If you do wonder where all 9 of us were, well, behind the scenes trying to get a good photo op.

I PUT UP A WALL. THE WALL IS COMING DOWN.

THRIFTED TOP⏐  ZARA SKIRT ⏐  PROENZA SCHOULER BAG ⏐  TODS MULES


I would describe myself as a mild introvert. I enjoy solitude and can be quite shy, though at times I like to be around people. Under the right circumstances, I can be outgoing. I think it's similar to how I approach my dressing. At times I like very subtle shades, mostly neutrals, but sometimes I would go crazy and HEY I AM IN PINK or prints.

TOP FROM BANGKOK⏐  MOTIF SKIRT ⏐  YVES SAINT LAURENT BAG ⏐ ZARA HEELS

Sometimes it takes awhile to get used to leaving a familiar environment and going into a new environment. For me, normally it takes awhile because I tend to be a little more reserved and not entirely 'out there' as a non-substantial person mentioned before. The thing is, 'being out there' isn't entirely great because that can be associated to being annoying, or worst pretentious. #thoughts
