Cream White

Sunday, 02 August 2015

  So the heat is back in Paris— New investment in fact. I decided to tryout a new 50mm prime lens, and took it out to my neighbourhood to play around. Being a photographer noob— i settled for a 50mm f1.8 STM Canon lens, unfortunately with my Canon 60D body, it turned into some 85mm lens. Almost like the zoomed version of my previous lens. But the depth that this lens allows is great! I’m definitely not used to it, I’m sure time will help. So I’m spending a little more time playing around. Sure, I do like my 17-85mm– but I really wanted something that allow me to play with the profondeur du champs/ or  depth of field. I’d go dig out some objects for photography test. Yet unfortuntely– my brother took over my camera stand. What a timing…     My new purchase for my wardrobe is this creamRead More +

Just Drive

Thursday, 30 July 2015

I assure you, I do not have the #selfie skills to snap photos of myself while driving. You’d probably find me in the hospital if ever I attempt that… A week just flashed past, and I’m back in Paris after an exploding schedule for a holiday. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a tan at all– that’s not quite summer isn’t it. Long story short, 2015 is quite a busy year with many relatives visiting. One of my cousins is on her Europe adventure, as the older sister-and-parisian, I had to bring her and her boyfriend around the city of lights. But some annoying administrative happened, I let her roam free for one day before heading back to my ever-beautiful sunny seaside to join my parents. Touring museums, snapping photos on our food tables, miles and miles of walking in Paris. Chasing trains— (because hum, we weren’t that good on time management), road tripRead More +

Obataimu

  Previously, previously— I went to Obataimu‘s pop up store opening, fell in love with almost everything in the store. Talking about taking chances, I brought a friend, we decided to pop by, wondering if Obataimu would be open.  When we arrived, Noorie was right outside her shop, ready to open. One in a million times that I actually had luck. After a lovely presentation, Noorie and Sophie quickly urged me to try on a few pieces in store. I loved everything in it— really! I mean, how can I actually pick any item out of everything I tried? The fabrics are created in Bombay (I hope I haven’t got it wrong), and they are ultra soft and comfortable. Each design can be customised to your length. You can pick your preferred color from their textile books. Then your clothes would be handmade and handdyed by the team in Bombay, shippedRead More +

A brief meeting

Thursday, 21 May 2015

Okay, it’s been confirmed. I only bring rain whenever I come back to my hometown. Since the first day that I came back last week, till today, the temperature have been dropping. It’s quite terrible considering that we’re in the middle of Spring. There should be more warmth— but I only had dark clouds and drizzling days. Until today- the day that I’m leaving… Fluffy clouds sailed a crossed the sky and the sun finally hangs up high for the President of Singapore to make his way to visit my hometown. To commemorate the 50 years of relationship between Singapore and France (SG50 woohoo), the President of Singapore had spent a week in France. One of the last stops, is here— at my little hometown. Families gathered around for a handshake and a greeting. My timid self, couldn’t bear to ask for a perfectly poised photo, but never the less,Read More +

Pereire / Plage Abatilles

Friday, 15 May 2015

I’m home for a short while! It’s terrible how I always bring the north rain clouds home. Look at those scary dark clouds. In fact, it was already drizzling in the town before. Damn, the temperature isn’t shooting up either. So after wading in the sand for a while, frozen ears and plouf it’s time to leave. Behold, I’ve just realized I’ve magic powers to manipulate the sea  (yes) Have you notice how my power have made the waves and boat dance to my rythme? (chokes— Ahaha) I previously thought I got some kinda food poisoning. Somehow it turned out to be some unbalanced stuffs happening inside my ear and caused my head to spin constantly and terribly for the past two days…

Sometime ago, I finally bought some stuffs from a friend’s online store— which I wondered why didn’t I buy them earlier. Proudly presenting https://quarter.sg I’ve received them, and now I can’t part with them. In fact, I don’t really own a lot of accessories. This grey plate is everything I have left. 3 rings from Swarovski, the long silver necklace from Mandy Wu, 2 thin gold/silver rings (which I somehow broke) and the watch were stolen from mom. And the rest of them are from Quarter. Somehow, I don’t know why, I always lose them- that’s why I said I’m left with only this plate of accessories. These little pieces are actually quite good in quality for their price  😉 Totally worth the purchase. My favourite of the favorites, would be the Valencia pearl stud earring (which is so much-loved that it’s out of stock now). I was quite worried at first, becauseRead More +

Winter is Over

Tuesday, 05 May 2015

Well hum- Winter is over / for sometime now. In fact, these were shot in March > and it took me forever to show it to the world. Yes, it’s Spring now. But Mr Sunshine, you have gone into hiding again. Mr Gloomy is taking control— control all you want, but Mr Sunshine must and will be back in the next ten days when I head back to my hometown for some sun and fresh air. As you can see, I’ve got my boy (who would never leave). I got extremely lucky with my latest purchase. Most of my time, walking into any Chanel boutique, any basic black pieces of boy is always sold out. Further more, I wanted the taller version of the M size / which isn’t always available. Then one day in March, luck came knocking when I walked into 31 Rue Cambon. They told me theyRead More +

Spartan Spirit

  A spartan warrior never dies. Technically, in my head: – I’m alive. I’m lacking a lot of posts lately; But I have been working a lot. And I’m planning for a new full revamp – sorry for the never-ending excuses… It’s a sign, spring is here. Walking in streets with lighter clothes, temperature going up to 21° degrees. Huurray! I finally took the chance to bring out my inner warrior spirit. One of my purchase earlier this year. But damn they kinda hurt. One of the belts were cutting into my skin and it actually bled  (wtf) But all for the sake of coolness and new adventure, I’d just endure it. Let’s see where this pair of sandals would bring me. This post is written in a total whim. I’ve been photographing things the whole day, the weather was great, everyone left the office early. Here I am sitting aloneRead More +

Thank You Good Sir

I’ve never really followed political stuffs. All those were just too complicated for my simpleton brain. But today, Singapore’s founding father Mr Lee Kuan Yew passed away at the age of 91, really like a grandfather figure for us 90’s kids. Tons of articles flooded my facebook stream. Couldn’t help it, but a tear ran when Prime Minister Lee Hsien Long made the announcement of the passing our founding father. His father. The long pause when he changed language addressing the public was so heart wrenching. “You begin your journey not knowing where it will take you. You have plans, you have dreams, but every now and again you have to take uncharted roads, face impassable mountains, cross treacherous rivers, be blocked by landslides and earthquakes. That’s the way my life has been.” “If things go wrong, do not sweep them aside. Confront the problems, get to the root ofRead More +

I thought I should share about some of my makeup stash. Well, actually I was picking out all the black packaging stuffs to shoot for Paula’s header image. I just realised that I have a lot of things that’s from Marc Jacobs. The limited edition Skyliners is definitely a good buy! The color combination’s so pretty! I have two of them in full size. Long lasting colors, they hold out pretty well on my sometimes-super-oily eyelids. One of the best out of all my pencil liners. But one down side is that, before it’s completely dried up, it’d tend to “ink” your eyelids.  Marc Jacob’s concealer stick is pretty good too. Until a friend sent this link to the group convo— And I had to test it out. It’s like whutttttt- it’s red! Plus I have bad sleeping habits, explains my dark circles— all the more I should try itRead More +
