What Love Is~


Im in love with this song and her.

if you and i get a little bit older
i'll get caught tellin' a lie
why can't i get a little bit older
i hear it happen, all the time
looking from the outside, but i can't get in 
is it cause i'm tired? baby i'm so tired
feeling all your whispers soaking in my skin
would it make me faithful? why can't i be faithful?
i wanna know what love is
i really hope that its not you
if the room gets a little bit colder
should we take it as a sign? is it a sign?
when my tear trickles down your shoulder
you get yours. you got yours
baby it'd be different if i was satisfied
would it make it better? want it to be better
i got a sick illusion stuck in my mind
i thought it would be softer i wish i was softer

Wonderstellar





Managed to get some time out and modelled for Wonderstellar. It was a fun shoot with tons of shoes and accessories to play around with. :) 

Feeling very rusty and unfamiliar with this whole blogshopping thing. Hahahah. Lots of new models now who are so much better and much more skilful! Hahahha I think its my turn to lean back and online shop instead. ;)

Salon VIM



Got my hair fixed by Ivan at Salon VIM located at 313 Somerset. Cant seem to trust other hairstylists after Ivan lay his magic fingers on my hair. Hahahha. Got a digital texturizing perm + a colour dye (in Cold Brown) and the super effective Kera-fusion Treatment which is a must every time I visit the salon. Australia water tends to dry my hair out, and my hair is already dry to begin with. So its always Kera-fusion treatment to the rescue. Definitely worth the time sitting there after seeing the results. 

Salon VIM is located at 313 Somerset #04-07/08/09
They also have another outlet at Bugis 

But I highly recommend Ivan! So do look for him if you're planning a visit! 

Remember to call 68847757 to book an appointment before heading down!

10 October 2014

"I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead;
I lift my lids and all is born again.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

The stars go waltzing out in blue and red,
And arbitrary blackness gallops in:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I dreamed that you bewitched me into bed
And sung me moon-struck, kissed me quite insane.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

God topples from the sky, hell's fires fade:
Exit seraphim and Satan's men:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I fancied you'd return the way you said,
But I grow old and I forget your name.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

I should have loved a thunderbird instead;
At least when spring comes they roar back again.
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)"
-Sylvia Plath


Perhaps this is part of getting older, the lack of motivation to pen down my thoughts, to visit this space regularly and keep it alive. I've probably had the habit of "blogging" since secondary school. I remembering writing everything down in those online journals of mine, probably from what I ate that day to who made me upset. But nowadays, perhaps I've learnt, or become wary. I got to know the term "privacy" and realise that putting everything up also meant getting judged? Or that everyone would know every thought you hold, whether you want them to or not, without you knowing. And that seemed scary, very scary. 

Tonight I seem extra afraid of the dark. I've decided to switch on the lights while sleeping. I don't know what got into me, but I was afraid being too long in the dark, would cause me to feel upset, start thinking unnecessarily.

11 August 2014

Finally back to school after a one month long break. This break was kinda like a paradox. I was really busy yet really free at the same time. Anyway, I guess I ll be penning down my thoughts here more often now that I am back down under. I dont know why, but I always write more when I am back here and hardly even come to this space when I am back home. Sometimes I really wonder who reads this space. And why are they even reading it. I actually do have a lot of posts, mostly unpublished. Cause I am actually scared. Or is scared even the right word? Do people read this space cause they genuinely care about me or they are just waiting for the day to watch me fall down a bottomless pit? Nevertheless, I really hope its not the latter.

Watermelon Mishap


Was trying to cut up this huge-ass watermelon by myself and ended up with this. Owells, I can't help but whine over this and am probably just making a big fuss. BUT hell, its not easy cutting a watermelon. So please appreciate the watermelon that you are eating and thank the person who cut it for you.

Salon VIM: Ombre Hair!!

Nowadays, every time I return to Singapore I will immediately book an appointment with Ivan from Salon VIM at the 313 Somerset outlet for some major hair rescue. Well, I am away most of the time in australia and that means that most of the time my roots start growing out, my hair lacks proper treatments. In order words, requires some "work". 

I would never never never trust the hairdressers in Australia with my hair (Cause the angmohs and asians have different hair types which require different kind of care and products) and after being introduced to Salon VIM, I never visited visited any other salons I felt that I could trust.

This time after some discussion with Ivan, we decided on doing ombre highlights for my hair and also going a few shades darker with the base. Yeah I still prefer a darker hair shade in the end cause I think I end up looking pretty ahlian if I go too light a colour! 


Doing the main rescue for my hair: the Kera-Fusion Treatment



^^ Tadaaaaa! The above pictures are the final results of my hair! I fell in love with it immediately the moment I saw it. And TBH, I am pretty fussy with my hair (ask my friends, they know best). But I was like "omgggggg, i loveee it!!!". You can imagine how happy and excited I was. And I immediately WA my mom a picture of my hair. Hahahahha, that was how happy I was. 


However, I really had a hard time trying to snap a picture of my hair from the front view that would do my hair justice. All the pictures just couldn't bring out the true colours of it!! Other than the one of the back view since it is most obvious from the back and from the front, it just looks more subtle! But really, no picture can do the ombre highlights Ivan did for me justice. Which is really such a pity!! So the best pic I could find was really the picture above from the side view! But you all can probably imagine it from the back view right! 

Anyway, remember to look for Ivan at the 313 Somerset outlet! He's my hair stylist and is really good! 
Do call to book an appointment before heading down cause he is a really busy man! 

Salon VIM recently expanded (congrats!!!) and is still located at 313 Somerset but a different unit!

There are many phases in our lives and at different phases, and in this different phases we would have different wants and needs. Say for example, during poly days I used to think that guys who wore red wings were super cool yet now, I kinda go "urghh yucks" at the sight of guys wearing them? Even these days when I look at a picture of an outfit I wore a few days back, I would cringe and wonder why I even chose that outfit. Hahah kinda funny looking back though. You start laughing at your choices and decisions, wondering why you even did that. Yet at that point in time, it was everything you wanted or could care about. I guess its really true that time does "heal" everything, even if its not a wound. So for now, I can only wish that two/three/four months down the road, I will look back and laugh at myself for being so silly.

Flaws

We are all human and everyone has flaws. Some insensitive people just go around commenting on others, shooting their mouths away without considering that others have feelings too. "Why your boobs so flat?" "Your tummy is showing" "eeee you got no butt" I think these words are said so easily today, without thinking twice. But no one is perfect. If u want someone perfect, go date a Barbie doll? Oh wait, maybe Barbie isn't perfect enough either. These comments may be said jokingly, or just casually but consequences go a long way. I know of true stories of how girls have become anorexic and almost lost her life cause of a 14 year old boy's ignorant idiotic comment on how she was "fat". Fat? What is fat? Maybe that's why I find humans so disgusting sometimes and I'm ashamed to be one.

10 July 2014

Everyone knows, okay perhaps not everyone but only people close to me, would know how I am a sucker for romantic stuffs, korean dramas, the whole prince charming in shining armour/frog prince package. I would really like to blame it on disney, or the whole korean drama for leading me to live in this whole warped idea of love/relationships or whatever kind. But when young, as a young kid of course the whole princess-y thing is what makes up your childhood. How about when a person gets older? Did this disney thing lead us to have a false idea of happily ever afters? Do happily ever afters even exist? Or perhaps disney mentioned that the prince and princess lived happily ever after, but with each other? Or they probably forgot to mention all the arguments, disputes experienced, hurt feelings. Cause after all, some things are better left unsaid? It was actually all good till a few years ago I found out the "truth" about little mermaid and I got so affected, I cried. I didn't know why i got so affected then and kinda went "thats bullshit", but thinking back, it might actually be true? 

Someone very important was telling me that day that what is shown in korean dramas, don't happen and thats why we watch them. Cause they never happen in real life. There's no kissing in the rain, running after another on a bus, cooking porridge when the other is sick and staying by their side. Well, and people don't wake up looking that good or even when drenched in water/mud, smelling that great, for the matter right? People kiss, but not in the rain. People kiss cause maybe they are drunk? Or cause they just want to? When people get sick, a "take care, drink more water, remember to take your medicine" text is probably one of the best you can expect. Guys in the korean dramas don't want much physical contact from you, perhaps just a kiss and then next scene! In real life? I can't be too sure its the same. People have morning breath when they wake up, and cmon, they're hair isn't always perfectly styled, and clothed in such fancy pyjamas. More of rags? Hahahahah. 

But then again, if you are able to accept the good and bad, then thats what you call real love right? And thats the whole challenge. Love isn't easy. Nobody said it was. Its definitely not as easy as saying it. Everyone can say it, few can mean it. It can be shown in many different ways. Does not necessarily need to be in a particular way that is conventional, cause different people have different ways of showing it. It might not be very obvious, might not be the way you want it to be, but whatever it is, when its real you will know it. There's no right or wrong. 

A Short Update

    Its been ages since I visited this space of mine, there were many times I typed words but yet somehow never ever clicked on the "publish" button. Its mostly bits and pieces of thoughts from here, there and everywhere. But never ever a proper post. Or perhaps I just rather keep these thoughts to myself, hide them inside me. 

      Life has been pretty mundane for me, definitely less fancy, less colourful. But somehow I am just choosing to let things be, preferring to let things be as they are and continuing to wait. Wait for what? I don't know. I don't know what life has in store for me next, so we'll see how it goes. For now, I am just slacking away, waking up everyday and just seeing what plans there are for me every day. I wonder how long this is gonna last, I kinda wish this whole "i don't know where I am heading to" phase will stop. But then again, would I be able to handle everything that comes charging my way if there was a change? 

      Time is passing way too quickly for my liking and literally in a blink of an eye, its July. Wow, did half a year just go by like that? What have I done this half year I ask myself. Nothing? A lot of things? Mehh, I can't be too sure I liked this year or when I look back on 31 dec 2014, will I look back wishing time would come to a standstill or wishing 2015 would hurry come, for a new brand new start ahead.

       Oh what am I ranting about now? These words don't even seem to make sense.

22nd Birthday Celebration














To be honest, I've never celebrated my birthday without my family before in my whole entire life and this year, when I learnt that I was going to be ALL ALONE in brisbane and that my birthday was in the middle of my exams, I was superrrrrrrrrr sad and moody. The day before, I was already kinda all teary and whinyyyyy, complaining on the phone non-stop to my poor mother. So minutes before 12 midnight on my birthday itself, I was cooped up in my room, dressed in my pjs and whining on the phone to my mom when... MY FRIENDS BURST INTO MY ROOM wishing me Happy Birthday??! I was super shocked that I couldnt stop screaming and all I did was continue to hide under my blanket. -.- yes, whats wrong with me? Then the first thing my friends said was "are u dressed decently??!?" Hahahahhaha. And I even had TWO cakes to blow! Apparently, one was partly from my mother! My mother had been contacting my friend here and secretly planned this surprise for me. Awww, I was super touched cause I didnt expect my friends to come surprise me??! OMGGGG. 

Im super grateful to God for sending these angels into my life! (*ps you know who you are, especially the one sitting next to me reading this now and laughing non stop.)

21 June 2014

“Once upon a time there was a crooked tree and a straight tree. And they grew next to each other. And every day the straight tree would look at the crooked tree and he would say, ‘You’re crooked. You’ve always been crooked and you’ll continue to be crooked. But look at me! Look at me!’ said the straight tree. He said, ‘I’m tall and I’m straight.’ And then one day the lumberjacks came into the forest and looked around, and the manager in charge said, ‘Cut all the straight trees.’ And that crooked tree is still there to this day, growing strong and growing strange.”

The Jolly Attic

The Jolly Attic is a new blogshop that has recently been established and do support them! 


I was really happy to be approached by the really friendly owner to be able to share this upcoming lovely shop with you guys!

I chose the below three pieces from their collection! 



^ Nightfall Abstract Dress

I think shift dresses are really one of the best things ever invented. Doesn't make you look sloppy at all, in fact, its pretty dressy yet super convenient because you don't have to worry about matching the tops and bottom. And its not those body-fitting kind so you don't have to worry too much after a heavy satisfying meal. 

This one from @thejollyattic is made of super good quality! I swear. I was kinda shocked when i received it cause the quality is comparable to those branded shops (think, Zara? okay its even better than Zara actually.) 



^ Noir Eyelets Crop Tee

This eyelet top is really pretty upclose! It has this flowery design, though you can't really tell from far. And match it any denim shorts or jeans and taadaa, ready to do! 



^ Allover Floral Crop Tee

As you can tell, (check above), I really do like cropped tops. I always pair them with my high waisted shorts. And most of my clothes have prints. I am seldom seen in solid colours. Anything floral, abstract and I like it. So of course I immediately laid my eyes on this and had to get this piece! Okay, I admit I am bias towards floral prints. 

Follow them on Instagram and their Facebook for updates! 



Some of their new arrivals which are really pretty that I have personally picked out! 




Time for you to shop now! :)
