Daniel Wellington

"Time flies with you." - Mitch Albom, The Time Keeper


Sometimes simple is always the best and less is more. I used to think that for accessories, the more the better. But these days, I've learnt to slowly appreciate simplicity at its best. 

Daniel Wellington watch collection consists of classic and timeless pieces which compliments every outfit. And that's why I've always had a soft spot their timepieces. 



If you remember, I previously got the Classic York Lady in Rose Gold and blogged about it here
This time, I decided to go for a smaller watch face, the Classy Sheffield in Silver. Something much more feminine this time! 

Okay, I admit, I fell in love at first sight with the index made up of Swarvoksi crystals. ;)


How can I not love this piece which matches with all of my outfits and suitable for both daily use or even formal events! 


You can check out Daniel Wellington's watch collection for both men and women at their official website! 


Also, Daniel Wellington offers free worldwide shipping! 
Buy it for yourself or a loved one. <3 



Try to imagine a life without timekeeping. You probably can’t.
 -Mitch Albom, The Time Keeper 

Caution!


It always good be careful who you entrust your heart to. Call it fussy, picky or whatever, who cares. But don't be reckless, don't be foolish. Be sure to know what you want, and that its not just to fill up that empty feeling temporarily. People hurt, people have feelings. Gotta learn your lessons. Cause when you give your heart to someone, you are giving them the freedom to crush it whenever, or to embrace it. You're letting that person into your life and be a part of it. It may be just for a short time, or for a really really long time. But still, its sorta almost everything in you. When you give, give it all, otherwise, I think it's better not to give at all.

Danang

Visited Danang (Central Vietnam) for a short getaway with the family during the one week break back in Singapore. You've probably haven't heard of the place before, but its such a beautiful place, untouched and still filled with lots of culture and heritage. Definitely a place I would highly recommend to visit, especially if you love beaches, and seen the pictures I've uploaded on Instagram. 










Dress from Petiterose. 


The hotel was beyond beautiful and this was what we saw every morning when we woke up! The hotel itself has 6 swimming pools and its pristine beach. Three nights there definitely wasn't enough. My sister and I kinda had difficulty leaving the place… 



Top from Ashincans. 







We also took a half hour bus ride to Hoi An, a UNESCO site. 




Visited the local wet market which my parents enjoyed ALOT. Maybe cause it reminded them of olden day singapore? Sometimes, happiness does not necessarily means spending lots of money or having lots of money. Seeing these local people, they are probably as happy as us. In fact, they might be luckier. Since the slightest things makes them really happy. 


Ventured out at night for dinner at the local town instead of just staying at the hotel. It was definitely an experience, since there was a communication barrier. But we still managed to order our dishes, though some weren't as appetising.. : ? But still, it was fun. No regrets at all! 



The night view while taking off from Danang. It was a lovely place~ Thank you…

Dogs





Hardest part of leaving singapore and going back to australia? Dogs. You might ask, not family? Of course I miss them, but I know that I can always communicate with them through Skype, whatsapp, phone calls. I can tell them "i love you" and let them know how I am doing and when I am coming back. But for my dogs, there's no way of doing that. I can't tell them that I ll be back soon, that I miss them ALOT and more. Imagine waiting for your owner to come back, with no specific date in mind. You're just waiting, what if your owner never comes back?? You don't know, but you just wait and wait. Thats why, if anything, I respect animals so much,they are so filled with love. If you gotta learn how to love, gotta learn from them. And as the phrase goes, be the kind of person your dog thinks you are. Well, then again, I might seem bias. Bias towards Zara since I always post pictures of Zara and not of Cooper. I've heard people tell me that I "love Zara more" and Cooper less. I got kinda angry. Cause I don't think thats a fair statement. How do you measure this love? And I've been with Zara for a much longer time, we've more memories together, spent more time together. Of course, I am "closer" to her in a sense. But that does not mean I love Cooper "less"? I don't even think you can measure love right? 



Away From You~


Away From You

I think of thoughts
that cannot be,
no hand can reach
across this sea,
the seasons change
on distant shores,
from frosty skies
to sunshine blue,
as summer's touch
undresses you -

Reminding me
of all the things
I often wish,
but cannot do.

-Michael Faudet

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.

Daniel Wellington


Really happy to announce that I am now a proud owner of a Daniel Wellington watch! I've seen a lot of fashion bloggers wearing it and lots of coverage of these classy and simple watches on both magazines and social media. Now I finally own one of my own! :)
 



Daniel Wellington has many designs to choose from and one of its most popular ones being the Classic Oxford in Nato Strap. However, I had my eyes set of the Classic York Lady in Rose Gold cause I've always had a thing for leather strap watches. Matches with anything!

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!
