Top: ASOS, Culotte: Monki, Shoes: On Pedder, Backpack: Urban Outfitters

There is something so rewarding about taking the time to put an outfit together for an evening out on the town. Lately with work basically taking up 24/7 of my life and T serving the nation, we’ve rarely found the time (or energy) to drag ourselves out of the house and have a nice dinner. Reasons why I love when the 14th of each month arrives. This means I have a reason to make T bring me to a nice place (my choice of course muahahah) to eat where I also force him to take my ootd and sit there staring at food while I spend 20 minutes taking photos.

That aside, I’m loving my new culottes from Monki in Europe!! The only one in Asia is in HK if I’m not wrong but I am absolutely in love with their clothes. My only regret is spending too much at the Adventure time store meaning I had to be very price conscious at Monki 😦 The culottes were only £10 (15SGD??). Side story- I was honestly coveting these pants for a good month or so on the online store so to have found them on sale in europe was a dream come true!!!! They are so light and airy making it perfect for the Singapore weather yet bring an edge to the outfit as compared to the usual high waisted shorts and mini skirts that everyone in SCAPE wears. I even wore them to work and the flow-y material allowed me to move around the cafe with ease. hehe can’t wait to wear them out more or not wear them at all until I’ve properly rotated all my new pieces of clothing wewewew. Hopefully I’ll get the Amsterdam photo diary up next cause the draft has just been sitting there…

bye-bye time for ballet hehe

Sneakers for days

Hey hey friends it’s been a really long time since I posted anything on this space. I’ve honestly been too tired with work and other commitments, leaving little time for myself anymore. I finally found the time to sit down the write up a little post about my CNY outfit. Ever since work started all I’ve been wearing is sneakers and more sneakers. I just love how I can do whatever the hell I want and not have to worry about my feet hurting or looking sloppy. I’ve also grown increasingly insecure over my arms?? Maybe cause T keeps jiggling my fats so I went for a T shirt dress that really brought me back to my golf days when I had a ton of polo t shirts. I just love how the black and white Nike’s paired well with the black and white pattern of the dress to give the outfit a very funky vibe because I need to look young so I don’t feel like an old fart compared to all the little kids I see during visiting.

I am starting to get bored of blogging to be honest. I prefer the spontaneity of instagram because things can just go up on a whim but for blogging I have to take my time of think of what I want to say? idk maybe I’ll just start putting up photos that don’t have a place on instagram here… work is so tiring /cries softly/

Blazer: Pull and Bear, Camisole: ASOS, 3/4 Jeans: Esprit, Shoes: Tao Bao, Bag: Cambridge Satchel

Hey pals, haven’t written anything in awhile cause work and baking has taken a huge huge toll on me. Found myself spending any pockets of free time I have cooped up in my room sleeping or eating. Hopefully all that will change soon 😦 Done with the last of the CNY orders but still have a catering order to do soon sobs. Okay enough ranting about life woes.

These were taken a few weeks back when I was super excited to go to the museum and use the Photo Booth. Dragged Rachel along with me since we had to do some dance stuff for church anyways! I knew there was going to be a lot of walking that day but I still wanted to be taller than 1.6m you know?? So I had to wear my fav platform ankle boots (okay are they a boot cause it has the shape of one or is it a platform sandal cause of the holes and all that #halp) from tao bao!!! They are my happiest buy just because I was so impressed at the quality plus I think it adds edginess to any outfit. Also been into the whole androgynous fashion white explains the white blazer yet I am still some lame o girly girly so I obviously paired it with pink HAHA oh well- I tried.

Hoping for more outings where I can dress up without having o worry about chocolate sauce getting onto my shirt.

talk to you soon 🙂

Shirt and top: Editors market, Headband: DIY, Shoes: Mum’s, Purse: Coach

Somehow I’m really into pants lately?? I think it’s due to the chilly (sort of) weather we’ve been having lately and my new found insecurity towards my legs HAHA. I love how well patterned and nicely cut pants can immediately make an outfit seemingly formal? I particularly enjoyed how the pant had a checkered print that was sort of cute but the dark muted colours made it more wearable and functional. Coincidentally the hairband i made a year ago was in a similar checkered print, so obviously I had to match them together because I love to look like I put a lot of effort into matching everything when really it’s all a happy coincidence. wow my sentences are so long. Paired it with a matching fluffy, white sweater to add an additional cosy factor and balance out the slim cut pants (though not very slim cause I have thunder thighs). Wore this out to eat with Sammy and Yangz and the last photo is a great depiction of what happens. Sammy is always helping me take pictures, while nuisance Yang Han is just standing there being useless and making inapropro jokes HAHA. More post will be up on the food we ate that day!!

See ya’ll on Saturday

ps: I just realised ps means post script and not please see wowowow bimbo moments all day, everyday.

Interview? Interview.

Top: Zara, Jeans: H&M, Smoking Slippers: Pedder Red

Wore this get-up for an interview last week at Stranger’s Reunion! It’s a café that sells the best buttermilk waffles in my opinion and they have another store next door called Waffle Slayer that just serves a range of savoury and sweet waffles, I’ve probably been there 5 times this year which is a lot considering I eat out an average of twice a month??

Anyways, I enjoyed how my top had this fish scale thing going on that gave a uniqueness to the outfit- I was desperately trying to impress them with how “cool” I was, which in reality I am everything but cool HAHA (sobs). I felt like the shoes helped as well, cause of the metal tip and leather detailing that puts an edge to the usual smoking slipper. My interview was less than impressive, I was a fumbly mess and wrote my year of birth as 2014. Really need to up my interview game especially when uni applications roll in next year and interviews will be needed if my grades aren’t good enough.

Regardless, I got the job! So y’all can come and find me at strangers and make my life hell if you want. I’d recommend the goat cheese omelette, corn fritters, eggs ben, and definitely classic waffles! For coffee try a magic or if you aren’t into that the hot chocolate is really really good.

Hope the holidays have been great for everybuddy!

ps: special thank you to T for coming down to support me at my interview! As well as being for 24/7 photographer, about 70 % of the photos you see on this space are taken by him. Love ya bubz ❤️

Smells like freedom

Hello pals!!! As you can tell from the title I am finally free from the clutches of satanic demons known as the A levels. It’s saturday and it feels like the papers ended a few weeks ago but really it was this tuesday? I’ll be compiling a video of sorts on stuff i’ve done this holiday- mainly videos of food, me eating food and on the rarest occasion, me exercising. First up T and I had a cute little date night to celebrate the end of suffering. I went over to his place and we did a short cover of Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds (link here). Then we head down to Standing Sushi Bar for dinner!

We initially went because of the $3 for 5 pieces of salmon but we didn’t read the sign properly and went to the Raffles outlet instead of the Queen Street one, only to have our sashimi dreams crushed. Nonetheless we decided to stick it out! The deals there were just as great with sashimi, chicken karaage, mentai tofu and Asahi beer, our new found favourite, going for $5. We ordered mains like unagi and ebi fry which we thoroughly enjoyed. To be honest even without the deals we would continue to come back because the food is good and fresh! And the hostess was literally the nicest and gave us sake shots on the house HAHA. The total bill came to about 60 for the two of us and 60 bucks I wouldn’t mind spending again and again.

After the meal I was tipsy, because I have the alcohol tolerance of a 3 year old so we walked around the CBD area to clear my head. Ended up posing with the art instalments and had a great great time. Also ended the day off with pudding from paris baguette. I am so bloody happy.

Double Trouble

On me: Denim button down from Esprit, pleather skirt from Scape and Mother’s Tod’s

On T: Denim jacket from Levis, chinos from cheap mondays and worn out Converse

Last, last weekend was my father’s birthday as well as the weekend before our first year anniversary so we decided to dress up a bit and head to town to catch Gone Girl- it is R21 but honestly if you can go go go watch it it is really good and honestly the best movie I have watched in a long time. Went with denim because T wanted to wear his new Levi’s jacket which he spent 3 weeks contemplating whether to purchase or not (such a cutie). Darker denim is always so vampy for me so I matched it with the pleather skirt that I adorn whenever I have nothing else to wear and purple lips which you may or may not be able to see. I have to say we look really good here and nothing like Britney and Justin Timberlake circa 2001. I also have to add that T looks extremely dashing :’)

I’ve started to realise how my blog is becoming this depiction of me- what I want you to see and sometimes not really me. I think I’ll start adding more personal stuff here too since this is a space I wanna look back at maybe 20 years down the road and remember all the fond memories I have. Hopefully I don’t make a colossal ass of myself which I happen to do so frequently.

Back to studying 😦
