2019 was one hell of a roller coaster ride. I was convinced that I got behind in the race of life then realizing, life is not a running track. I ticked quite a bunch of ‘firsts’. My acne cleared up for one whole month then decided to come back. I also managed to save up for a trip to Japan but decided to save the money instead of going.
One resolution I did fulfill this year: to read more books. 1 per month to be exact. Only two of them are heavy reads, but at least 5 of them are quite profound.
All of them will take me to where I want to be. I am thankful that for the whole 2019 I get to work promoting something I really believe in: reading.

Despite of the fact that i am tropical born and bred, let’s just pretend that i could distinguish summer to any other seasons and dress differently during that time. The fact is, i don’t.But say i could get into the minds of the fellow sub-tropical people, and know what people would want to wear on brighter days. My best bet would be comfortable lightweight clothes, and sandals. Although i’d suggest them to ditch all the summer cliches, and opt for the all-black look instead. I’d also add some on point accessories like watches and sunglasses in the shade of white, as non-verbal cues for “no Ma’am/Sir, i’m not going to a funeral”. Also, one does not simply walk out the door without a structured, practical sling black to carry all their summer necessities. Aaaand, DONE
I mark the time when two of (then) the most influential musicians in my life, Westlife and Sherina teamed up to sing ‘i have a dream’ in 2001 as the highlight of my childhood. Fast forward 13 years later, the feeling can only be compared by putting the only two brand and designer i’ve dedicated a post specifically about in a collaboration.
Alexander Wang x H&M, is Westlife ft. Sherina hysteria all over again!

I love and cherish the idea of statement jewelries. But if i try to count my blessings, being graceful and coordinated are certainly far off the list. There’s a chance for me to get tripped or get tangled on my own enormous blings. So for those times where efforts seems to be overrated in terms of dressing, dainty jewelries will still give a hint of feeling like a lady, while still sets our movements free. We might even forget it’s attached somewhere on our body, but everyone can still see.
OOOH MYGOOOOD IT RHYYYYMES!
As i was overhearing a techno music playing on my brother’s mp3 player through the door, It occurs to me that i actually enjoyed it. Generally, i’ve come to notice my new found interest in pretty much everything futuristic. I was once a self-described preppy but now everytime i saw pieces with metallic silver and highly structured details, i am having a visual feast.
After the jump, there will be a little bit more than a healthy dose of ultramodern awesomeness, and you’ve been warned
Side effects might include an obsession of living in 2100s or compulsion in collecting anything metallic…
Balenciaga and Alexander Wang. –Besides the fact that they are currently directed by the magnificent talent that is Mr. Wang– what do they have in common? Well this season it’s a work of a fine cutting, and advanced detailing in a form of laser cuts, which i personally
am not … was not a fan of. Past tense applied.
Now will you take a moment and look closely to the details of the cutting?
Yes you read it right — I’ve never use this pop culture term before but, ooh SWAG!
Pure. Brilliance. Period. Exclamation marks!
How will you translate this to your look?
