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.

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

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.

WAY BEFORE I QUIT, IF YOU GET WHAT I MEAN.

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

MISS SELFRIDGE KIMONO⏐  UNIQLO JEANS ⏐  VINTAGE COACH BAG ⏐  WILFRED CAMISOLE ⏐  MICHAEL KORS MULES  ⏐  VANESSA MOONEY CHOKER

My former colleague, Hannah said let it slide. So I let it slide. It can mean anything. In reality in meant the kimono sleeves. Metaphorically, it meant issues related to work. To make things even more complicated, we chose a wall that literally meant 'concrete jungle' for the pictures and a wall full of mirrors. Metaphorically, 'concrete jungle' can mean chaotic workplace and the mirrors are for self reflection.

Christmas is indicative that the year is ending and to reflect on the good and the bad we have been through throughout the year. Merry Christmas!

BANANA REPUBLIC DRESS  ⏐  VINTAGE BAG ⏐  FRANCO SARTO SANDALS

While I was back at the island up north, I kind of dragged my baby brother for a walk down the heritage lane for some photos while at lunch. My version of siblings bonding.

THE DAY WHEN I THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD IDEA FOR A STRAW BAG.

POMELO PANTS  ⏐   RICOCHET BY BOOM TOP  ⏐  THRIFTED WEAVED BAG ⏐  WHISTLES SLIDERS

There are days I decide to put my leather bag to rest and pick up a straw bag. In this case, that is what I did exactly. Straw bags are the Parisian way, and the one I had back home had completely worn in. I have yet to find a replacement so this vinyl option shall suffice.
