The week after CNY, my cell group and I head to Sentosa for an outing! Organized by Xue, we headed for Luge and Skyride. It was Russ’s last outing with us before he flew to Aussie for school.

Us before the Luge rides in our helmets and during the Skyrides! (:

Random pics with the girls at school!

With B for tea at ION during class breaks… Capturing her in her poses!

With the girls in the meeting room, where B and I booked tickets for our trip to Korea NEXT WEEK!!! 😀

With the girls on V’s jeep. Paiseh I know the yellow cartoon background v unbefitting of the cool car and girls but.. cute what right!

With the lovely V. I cheat, our faces are post-processed on my phone and thus we look fair like fairies. HAHA. Next time I share my secret to good skin and pretty pictures ok?!

More selcas with V, on the ride back to school from lunch!

Undeniably school has been major fun with the girls. <3

This week has been fantastic, God’s grace been so abundant. Firstly B and I managed to book tickets to Korea despite the rule that we were supposed to book 21 days in advance. Secondly after 1 long and stressful week I finally manage to confirm model and timing for Trans. Lab shoot. It’s been majorly postponed as somethings are not within my control. The stress’s not over yet but I’ll do what I need/can and trust God for the growth and blessings.

Today’s the only weekday I got back home before the sun’s out and it felt surreal. I appreciate my busy schedule, it’s a blessing to be able to have a fulfilling life. It felt real good to crash on my bed for a 3 hour nap after the long week.

Had the pleasure to assist Lucinda in her solo exhibition on Wednesday, will post some pictures soon! Next week will be major fun. Loads to work to clear before I head for the hols!!! But oh what fun! 😀

CNY 2012!

How was your CNY? I’ve been wanting to blog about mine… but kept neglecting to. :/

I felt this year’s CNY was less exciting. In terms of visiting family and friends. But I greatly enjoyed visitations with my church friends! (:

No pre-CNY reunion dinner is complete without steamboat! This one was particularly good, thanks to my mum!

Multi-coloured nails to usher in the new year… Against my desk while I was working on school’s CPJ – creative process journal.

First day of CNY, with friends in church. Here with Estella!

2nd day of CNY my family and I visited my grandma’s place, here seen with my aunt and her children and my sister.

Met up with friends Ian, Martin, Dafril and Joshua over at Shane’s place. We had loads of fun playing Xbox, till we had no time for movie! hahaha. ^^

At Amy’s place, her fairly newly adopted handsome son, Muffy!

That’s all for this year’s CNY…

Loads of pics to upload for Feb… went to Luge with churchies and random selcas with my girls in school. 😛

Korean Drama X Modern Fashion Feb SS 2012

If you don’t already know, I am a huge fan of korean drama and what better post is there than combining two of my life’s greatest interest, korean drama and fashion together?! ^^

I am an avid korean drama recap reader. LOL. I loyally follow Dramabeans, Koalasplayground and Soulsrebel websites for their Kdrama and TWdrama updates. But due to my busy schedule, I tend to only read recaps unless the drama is really good, or it’s my holidays than I will spend the time to watch the drama online.

There are currently two fantastic korean dramas showing, the first a sageuk (period drama) titled “The Moon Embracing the Sun” and the second “Shut Up Flower Boys Band”. I’d admit they are lousy titles, but I love what they wear! The first for their beautiful, elaborate, vibrant-coloured, silk royal garb and the second for their too cool for school rocker looks and preppy uniforms. <3

The Moon Embracing the Sun Poster.

I especially love the intricate details on the shoulders of the King and the Queen (left two). Cultural heritage makes great fashion.

I love the vibrant yellows, pinks, purple and blue colours. 

The hanbok in lovely pink/purple and green/purple combination. Might be too much if paired in this combination today but totally possible to pull off for a daring, stylish fashionista.

As seen in contemporary fashion, here in Alexander McQueen’s FW 2010, the last collection designed by himself, presented post-humously. He was inspired by the western culture and details here, but I can totally imagine if a chinese/korean designer adapts the Oriental designs for modern wear! But of course, the designs would be more suitable for haute couture, or more formal attire.

Bright cheery emerald green dress by Victoria Beckham selling on Net-a-porter here. Definitely a great colour to herald the Spring… (:

Metallic encasing gem YSL rings are all the rage in the fashion world. Retailing at $390 in-stores in Singapore now. Gems come in many lovely colours and metal ring in gold or silver. The big, bold and royal is definitely in vogue!

MCQ Alexander McQueen Kingsland Vinyl Tote retailing here.

Assad Mounser Shiprock gold plated multichain retailing here. I am loving the multi chain, summer coloured accessory. Tres chic.

For a similar look that is more accessible locally, check out Bimba & Lola at Orchard ION. Their necklaces have this very candy, seemingly DIY quality to it that is very attention grabbing.

Bimba & Lola necklace… I got this off the website, but the ones in store are different, just to  illustrate the uniqueness of their necklaces.

Going on to Kdrama number 2… Shut Up Flower Boys Band.

Boys looking cute in their rocker band look. I dig this look… a lot. Haha. Style notes: silver multi chain necklace and rings, best in cross and skulls motifs, layered look with leather jackets and scarfs (unfortunately so not possible in all year summer Singapore, sobs), skinny jeans.

Just needed to post a picture of this rookie newbie in the show, Jo Bo-ah, age is not found online. She is so pretty. 

The preppy school look is a classic look…

Burberry Pre-Fall 2012.

More boyish looks from Balenciaga’s Spring 2012 Menswear.

Rock the look with…

Alexander Wang bags

I hope I’ve inspired you to 1. Watch the korean dramas 2. Gain some fashion tips for your Spring Summer 2012. 3. Realize that you can pick up fashion tips from korean drama… or any well styled drama! 😉

Relaxing Port Dickson Vacation

Back in early January, my sisters and I headed to Port Dickson Avillion Admiral Cove hotel for a short weekend vacation! It was a Groupon vacation, which we paid $88 per pax. Worth it I’d say, for the lovely place. Definitely more worth it than Batam! The lovely view from the hotel lobby… The hotel lobby. View of our hotel room… which is nice and spacious. From the balcony. Port Dickson is mostly a tourist location in Malaysia, famous for it’s beautiful beach, water sports and holiday resorts. There isn’t much to shop or do otherwise. We spent our time there mostly relaxing.  We found this nice food stall in the city about 15 min car ride away from the hotel for our meals there. My sisters, Jia Hui and Lu Jia. <3 I thank God for my sisters!

Picnic by the Bay

If you haven’t, hopefully you will set out for a picnic by the bay after this post!

It was quite a spontaneous picnic gathering, organized just the day before. With a small group of church friends we decided to pot luck and head out for a day of fun at Esplanade by the bay! 🙂

Sandwich, chicken sausages and soft drinks.

With Claire, Jerome, Ernest and Matthieu.

Posing against the beautiful skyline.

Like a Hollywood movie!

The scenic view… a tourist attraction.

Ernest thirsty for some water…

Matthieu’s fight against the Merlion. Hehe.

And Jerome wish to collect some home…

At the Esplanade library… The boys and their dance moves.

During the following Saturday, Benji cell decided to head to Aston’s at East Coast for dinner, instead of the usual Hawker fare. (:

Xue li and I with our respective meals.

Russ, Ming and Vivien.

Several more posts to come… Photos from my trip to Port Dickson, snippets of CNY, Museum visits and goofing around with girls in school.

I hope your year has been going great! (:
