Reflections 2017

Typing this while waiting for our bus to head to Holy Trinity Brampton church for Sunday service on the last day of the year.

Am really thankful for all that has happened in 2017, highlights being the travels with my family; visiting the flower fields in Hokkaido with my parents in summer, Christmas Eve dinner with my relatives at my big sister’s house, spending Christmas and New Year’s with my second sister in London and taking a trip out to Paris to see the Eiffel Tower when I’m here.

Career wise, I count my blessings especially with each and every client and referral that trust me with their business. Am particularly expectant for a productive and fruitful business year in 2018 with clients and cases lining up for follow up when I’m back!

Spiritually, increasingly I find myself living the “Let go” life that Pastor Prince spoke heavily about this year. It’s really a lot easier said then done but I believe after 4 years I am finally closer to what it really is to live a life surrendered and dependent on my savior, protector and provider, Jesus Christ.

Year after year I grow in appreciation of friends that continue to keep in contact with knowing how busy everyone gets and how priorities shifts with changes in life. For all my friends who are reading this, know that every time you spend with me over a meal, message you send on WhatsApp, comment you leave on Instagram is not lost on me and very much appreciated.

I wrote in a previous message that I want to “Value Add” to people all around in my 2018 and to that I also will make my 2018 the most productive and fruitful year.
I hope that you’re enjoying the last day of 2017 and that 2018 will treat you well.

Love & God Bless,


P.S. Fingers crossed I get to see Pastor Nicky Gumbel for service later, have been listening to his Bible in One Year all year long !

I will build my life upon Your love

It is a firm foundation

I will put my trust in You alone

And I will not be shaken

I will build my life upon Your love

It is a firm foundation

I will put my trust in You alone

And I will not be shaken

Zadig & Voltaire Fall Winter Launch @ Marina Bay Sands

Hi lovelies!

I hope October’s going well for you? In a blink of an eye, October is almost half way through and I have yet to post my September Photo Round Up, hehe!

So pictures from Zadig & Voltaire Fall WInter 2012 Launch! (:

Prior to the models entrance, Bobbi Brown treated the audience to their Fall Winter colour palettes and a make up demonstration.

Fall Colours fitting comfortably with Zadig’s effortless cool styles on the table.

Shimmery sequined jacket for those looking to shine on the dance floor, quite literally. >u<

A very pretty model, who overheard V saying quite loudly how pretty she was.

And she was very pleased with V’s compliment and thus was smiling quite radiantly at us while we snapped away! <;

V’s sticker of the day. #walkonthewildside Each guest had a sticker for the night. I didn’t take photo of mine, it was a Z&V sign, for the media because I attended as a blogger. <:

I lurveee this leopard print blazer. So pretty. Would be great to pair it with a white dress with a layered, asymmetrical tutu skirt. The uber handsome model makes his entrance.

Zadig & Voltaire is a french label, laidback with a rock attitude govern the label’s designs. Working with mostly solid colours, comfortable textures and the occasional skull and paisley prints. I love the brand’s aesthetics very much.

Pretty model reappears with a studded shoulder blazer.

Picture with her shoes in it. Matching the blazer!

Chiseled face makes his appearance again.
It was the first time that I got chat up at an event, usually I’m the one breaking the ice, but this model made the european lady next to me exclaimed just how handsome he is and asked if I agreed with her. I did, and I told her to go up to him and kiss him since he is only an arm’s length away. She said she would, if her husband who was next to her allowed. He didn’t, laughing while saying and the lady went on to say maybe the model is more suitable for her daughter. Lol!
European model face quite frankly looks like a work of art, like a statue.
Beware if you are jaws wide open, lest your drool spills on the floor. 😛

Ah… She makes an appearance in a military influenced get up. I am loving the military style this season.

Olivia Bee’s Fairytale Film [Il Est Pour Nous] Featuring Hermès

Hey’all lovelies!

Today I’d like to share with you the works of Olivia Bee, particularly images and a film that was commissioned by Hermès Paris.

Olivia Bee is a talented, young (only 18!) and beautiful american photographer based in Oregon. So the story goes that Hermès Paris saw her works, liked it and decided to send her 30 scarves (which she had to return after), an idea of a story about a Prince and Princess and voila~ These are the resulting creations of Olivia Bee.

Olivia Bee’s style is emotive, lush, ethereal, child-like and fairytale-ish. It’s fascinating that Hermès Paris has given her so much artistic license to create the elfs hat and ribbon hat out of Hermès scarves.

If you liked the images, you’ll love the film – check it out here:


It’s a film full of WIN isn’t it? From retro cars and attires, bejeweled shoes, refreshing pool swims, COLOURED BUNNIES (omg), elaborate sofa and cupcake set in the forest to full on kisses, Olivia Bee’s fairytale film takes the cake in her genre.

I am inspired by Olivia Bee. She’s a living example of a talented lady, pursuing her passion thus so inspiring that a renown brand like Hermès would extend a collaboration with her. Amazing! You go girl!

Have you come across anyone, works, images or films recently that you find very inspiring? If so, leave me your reply in the comment box below!

Chanel Spring Summer 2012 Runway Fashion Runway in Singapore

This is an overdue post of the Chanel Spring Summer Runway show which Bini and I attended back in March. (:

Evidently inspired by the underwater world and creatures, Karl’s vision shone through as his pieces were reflective of sea animals and flora against a set of blown up and all-white seashells and corals.

As usual, the runway set and collection is a miniature version of what’s shown in Paris. Catch a glimpse of Karl’s vision of underwater inspired Chanel with Florence Welch arising like Botticelli’s Venus on the half shell singing “What the Water Gave Me.”

Coming back to Singapore, the show was held at Dempsey, a revamped old warehouse of sorts converted to Chanel’s runway for the night. Lounge area where tasty hors d’oeuvre are served.

And the show begins! I only posted the ones I like and weren’t too blurry. 

The clothes reflected the colours and textures of fishes, corals and even seaweed. I thought this collection was a lot better than the one we saw last FW 2011.
And for the door gifts… Chanel gave a set of their Spring Summer nail polish aptly named April, May & June! (;
Here’s to a great summer for all you lovely folks!

Launch of Women’s Fashion Week 2011 Haute Couture Exhibition at Marina Bay Sands

Last Thursday, my girlfriends Bini, Kat and I attended VIP Launch of Women’s Fashion Week Haute Couture Exhibition, thanks to Senatus, the online magazine that’s bringing us all these fashion goodness. 🙂

We had classes in the day, so we proceeded to Bini’s pad to watch half a movie (Drag Me to Hell which was too much for me to bear, so I pleaded / took the remote and shut it :P) before we freshen up and change for the night’s event! We also took the opportunity to spam some photos. ^^V

I really like my new bangs with a new coat of purple dye! ^^

Here’s a picture of us posted on Senatus website. 🙂

A selection of dresses by the 8 french hautes couturiers were on exhibition. Here are just a few that were presented!

This dress is designed by Eymeric Francois.

This is by Gustavo Lins. I like the warrior-like buckle elements of the dress.I forgot to note who designed this purple dress, but it’s one of the most striking coloured dress exhibited. *Update* This dress is designed by Maxime Simoens! 🙂The reason why I post about this dress is because…Blair from Gossip Girl wore it! She is wearing a dress by Maxime Simoens. Note a funny looking Serena standing behind her. 😛 Chairman of WFW 2011 was there to greet the press and VIPs. He says it will be the first time 8 french haute couturiers will be showing outside of Paris! It is such a landmark fashion event, happening in Singapore. 🙂A short preview collection by Alexis Mabille! He says this is a teaser of what he will be showcasing, all of the dresses are white because during his actual runway collection he will showcase his coloured dresses. The models look like fairies in these dresses. There is an ethereal feel and they remind me of how the female immortals dress like in old chinese dramas! Guess where we went after the event?

MBS Cold Storage Specialty store! HAHA.

I thought it’d be funny to take photos with the food and stock. So here are a few goofy shots of us!

With Andy Warhol’s favourite and approved Campbell Soup Can.
One shot of the Queen of Poses!
I meant to head home after the event because I was lugging a big bag but my girlfriends Bel and Jacq convinced me to head out to Overeasy to meet new friends and some drinks. After some drinks our new friends brought us to Avalon as they got us on their friend’s list for the night. So there I was, back at MBS for the second time that night. Haha. The night was uneventful for me, but I can’t say the same for the other girls. 😛 In anycase, here’s the beautiful scenery just outside the club.

Back in those days, Nanyang (as Singapore was then known) was the stuff of dreams. Now in the 21st century, it still is the stuff of dreams and many more to come. 😀

Wishing you a blessed week ahead! Wish me all the best in finding and securing a wonderful internship! I need your prayers!
