Habouring High Hopes



On me: 

Top (New Look) 
Skirt (Bugis Street) 
Statement necklace (Colette by Colette Hayman) 
Block heel sandals (New Look) 

Block heel sandals would always be my favorite aside to wedges~ It's something that is sturdy to walk in and I'm confident that I wouldn't fall flat onto the ground, plus it gives an extra boost in height and not forgetting that it pimps up a casual outfit. 
Managed to pieced this outfit together for the contest that New Look Singapore is currently hosting on instagram, sadly I didn't win for this week.


My preferred choice of jewelry and accessories would be a pair of statement earrings. I was initially inspired by Aria (from Pretty Little Liars), but because earrings don't oxidize and rust as fast as a necklace, I'd always take more interest in it rather than a statement necklace. 
Insisted on getting this because it completes my graduation outfit and because the necklace has like cloth material which makes it better because the rust wouldn't transfer to my skin! I'd probably buy 10 of these if it comes in different colour combinations~




Gonna resume my last minute packing for my trip. Gahhh I can't hold my excitment for tomorrow to come! :D

G R A D U A T I O N !













I can proudly call myself a graduate of Murdoch University!
Such a pity that I couldn't graduate with all of friends, mainly because the ceremony was split into two sessions and the people that I've been hanging out my entire uni life were all graduating on the second session.
It's an incredibly amazing how far I've come, I'll definitely miss having late nights conversations with my team mates while editing report, all the pre-exams anxiety and awesome lunch companions that we'd spend hours discussing about our favorite shows~
Thank you to the wonderful people that I've crossed path with- I'd always remember those who made life in uni so much more interesting.

Oh yes, I can't wait to explore Bangkok City in another 2 days, I hope it doesn't rain on me ): !!! Stay tuned to my instagram (I'm positive that there would be better updates!)

The Importance of Being Different.


I spent one afternoon watching videos of him and I particularly liked this one. :)
"It's more important to be different that to be good."

Peach Passion






Outfit Details: 

It's a Paris Thing striped tee - New Look 
Orange Maxi Skirt - ASOS 
Colours of California Ballet Flats - Zalora





One of my favorite t-shirt that I got from New Look some time back. On a day that I run out of outfit ideas, this is definitely my go-to. I would pair it with jeans for a minimalist look or just pair it with a fancy skirt to dress it down. (You can never say no to a great black x white shirt.)

Paired the stripey tee over my favourite maxi skirt that I got from ASOS sale sometime back! But being a shortie, this maxi was just too long for me. But thankfully, I have help from my grandma for alteration. The perks of having a talented granny~ 

So glad that this set of photos turned out pretty well because it was taken under circumstances with no prior planning. Haha. I guess that's the fun part about being impromptu. 


Here is a flatlay that I was so in love with during the month of August! Have a great week ahead everyone~

Not Really A Secret

Sirius Black once told Harry Potter to keep his friends close, so I made a collage of me and friends to keep them close in a square grid (notice that there isn't any space between the photos)
These people that I am so blessed to have known from my secondary school , poly and then university days. (If we are friends and you don't see yourself in this collage, this just means that we need a meet-up like now!)

If my dearest Zolz is reading this, here's a shout-out to you. I LOVE YOU ❤ Haha. Hope you're adjusting well back to your student life. Hehe. 



As of late, I'm back to reading novels and I'm currently building up my reading list, so if you have books for recommendations please let me know in the comments section.
I've just completed  Con.template's The Fall of Gods (sequel to Welcome to the Underworld) and I'm following up with The War of Gods then Solangel's April Love Black Coffee.
Spent the whole afternoon at the hospital reading The War of Gods today and I'd probably take another three days to complete the book~
Sigh, there are just so much feelings coming back while reading the Welcome to the World series and I can't believe that this journey is coming to an end soon. There were so many moments that made me go "Aww~ that's so sweet" and how I wished Kwon Tae Hyun was a real person because he is simply perfect. Well, I guess this hopelessly romantic novel has the power to make someone want to fall in love(find Paris).
But nobody can ever match up to Kwon Tae Hyun, ever. 

Enough of my ramblings because I see this going nowhere, except me fangirling over a fictional character. :S
I guess in love, it is very important to be bold enough to make the first move. So if you're a wuss like me, here's a song that you probably could relate to (The bittersweet feeling when you have a crush on someone).

Miss Flower








When it comes to decision making, I could be so bad at it. Recently M & I came at the crossroads, after a long internal struggle that boils down to the ultimate question, to go or not to go to Bangkok? 

So, we decided on three tosses of coins for our final decision. Heads would be a go; tails would be no-go. Who knew we were so lucky and fated to visit the Land of Smiles~ ( We got Heads consecutively three times! Seriously, what are the odds?)

SO YES, I'll be visiting Bangkok next month~ I can't wait for this trip to happen because it's finally my chance to getaway from this city. (Can't wait for things to turn up better and crazy shopping~)

Today's outfit assemble is simply a floral fringe kimono layered over my staple white laced baby-doll dress. I had been eyeing this floral kimono for quite some time but sadly there were defects on my first visit to the shop. The sales person tried to pressure me into buying by telling me there wouldn't be stocks coming in anymore and that I should get it because she will be offering me at $28. 
Luckily I didn't fell into her trap because on my second visit, the stocks for this kimono came in! So, don't get fooled by sales people. There are lies that they will tell to sell you the product. 

In that last picture, all I wanted to attempt was a jump shot (that failed). Hahaha. 
Anyway is anyone going to Bastille's concert in SG next year? I really wanna see them perform live so badly but I have no friends who are into their music. ):

The Little Whispers of the Seasons

It's truly an agony to have lost my voice over the past few days. I got better today but on the first few days of being sick, the best I could manage was to whisper if not croak with massive voice breaks in a conversation. That was how bad it was. 

On a side note, this was one of my favorite outfit that I put together last month for my godfather's birthday lunch.
Denim shirt , Mint mesh midi skirt and a hat to cover up my undone black roots.  



On me: 

- Denim Button Up (Cotton On)
- Mint Mesh Midi Skirt (Bugis Street)
- Wedges (Melissa) 
- Neon Pink sling bag (Bangkok)
- Fedora (H&M) 
- Statement Earrings (Lovisa) 






Family Love.

A U G U S T : Life in Squares

As much as I love my Samsung Note 2, these days it just won't stop being a complete bitch. Transferring files to my phone has been a pain in the ass, thankfully for Airdriod I could simply download pictures from my computer without having to face crappy "Not Responding" messages whenever I drag files into my phone. 

Even though it's a little late but I'm keeping Sam Smith's album on loop again lately. I thought Leave Your Lover was sad but my friend disagrees. Selfishness aside, it's a pretty sademotional song okay! 
" Oh, I'm in love with you and you will never know, but if I can't have you, I'll walk this life alone." 
Unrequited love is just SAD and pathetic.
I could give you a list of my favorites on his album but if you're a lonely soul like me, In The Lonely Hour is just for you.

Anyway here is my life in squares for the month of AUGUST

Photos from L to R: 

1. S & I visited the YSL counter and she decided to give the bold red lip a try. She's not a make-up fanatic, so I had to take this photo to celebrate this moment! 

2. Since it was national day, I decided to do something patriotic. 

3. Accidental shot that turned out surprisingly nice at Chijmes. BFF & I climbed to the second level hoping to take my outfit shot without being disturbed or getting stared at. But two random guards has to appear out of nowhere and give me the shock of my life. Well, we laughed because they clearly know that they startled me.

4. Lunch at D'Good Cafe. No swings seat but I truly enjoyed that raspberry drink!




5. Deleted this photo of me & my lovely JDP because I kept having typo errors while captioning this. Urgh. Why does Instagram not have the edit caption button? 

6. I had nothing to post and I decided to post a mirror reflection of myself sitting like an ajumma. Just needed to show off my Sulley phone casing~ 

7. #OOTD I'd do an outfit post on this soon. 

8. My bro's transformation. On the left was taken during Chinese New Year last year and on the right was taken recently. This is what pre-enlistment has done to him (which I'm so proud of his determination) and he's a bald guy now because he went for Hair For Hope a month ago.



Oh and.. Greetings to you if you're celebrating Mid-Autumn Festival on Monday. Have fun feasting on mooncakes, lighting up candles and carrying lanterns. 
Have a great weekend everyone~ 


Leaving you links to find me... Just in case... In case I sparked some interest in you.

If you came into my heart.






Outfit details: 

Black tank top // New Look 
Jeans // BKK 
Blazer // Dorothy Perkins 
Heels // Zalora 
Bag // BKK
Hairband // Colette by Colette Hayman


It's amazing how I could finally fit into these jeans that were long forgotten. This would be my first attempt in layering in this hot & humid weather. Well, I managed to keep my blazer on the whole despite being so whiney about the heat. All because I was wearing a tank-top and I just couldn't bear my flabby arms.

Anyway I just received a notification on Lookbook that somebody upvoted my comment. Haha. I never knew what this means or how it worked until someone upvoted me. Haha. This shows how unfamiliar I am with LB.

Haven't owned any blazer yet even though I know that it's a staple in every girl's closet so I decided to invest in this one. Blazers are so nice to work with when you're in a colder climate or on rainy days (if you're from a tropical country like me). Simply just throw on a bright colored blazer for a color pop in your outfit, just like what I did here. Otherwise on bolder days, you may also choose to do color-blocking. This outfit I was inspired by my favorite style blogger, SongofStyle. I love it how she made any casual outfit look so effortless and chic simply by draping a blazer over her shoulders. :)


Have a great weekend everyone!
I'm kinda active on Instagram/Twitter, so follow me there if you are interested in my updates.

July Adventures.

I'm a very confused person. Just a month ago, I was so into anything American or Brit (be it music or shows) and now I'm back to watching K-drama and variety shows. I don't know what's worse, behaving like a 16 year old fangirl or that Korean entertainment is taking over my life again.
Anyway, I was watching Idol Manager today and in one episode the guys in MBLAQ attended acting class and they had to re-enact a scene from the drama "I love you, I hate you". Then there is this line that totally cracked me up.

 "You haven't had a drop of water, yet you're spilling bucket of tears. What are you? A Frog?"

So the next time when you see somebody cry and you wanna find out the reason why, do it the K-drama way~ Hahaha. Oh when you think of inviting a girl for lunch or dinner, there's also the K-drama option, but I'd suggest you to not attempt. Unless you don't mind getting whacked. Haha. Anyway, here it is for your reference.

Time passed by so quickly that I didn't realized that we're already half way into August. Here is a major throwback to the fun I had cafe-hopping and exploring new places with my bff last month.

1. Five & Dime
(Probably my favorite because of the Mentaiko pasta and the amazing song selections that they have there) 






 2. Creamier 





3. La Marelle Cafe & Boutique






Instead of hanging out at the usual place, these days whenever we meet up we'd try to explore places that we haven't been before. Well, I guess this polishes our map-reading skills to prep us for our overseas trip in the future~ (So far so good, we haven't lost our way yet. Hahaha.) Can't wait for next week to finally see her again.
