reflecting 2011

Here is my reflection for 2011 and resolutions for 2012. Just a thought: A few days back, I watched New Year's Eve. I thought its quite a nice movie, the speech by Claire Morgan (played by Hilary Swank) really touched me and very meaningful. Other than partying all night, wishing each other "Happy New Year", indulging in yummy food, what are you going to do to strive better for the coming new year? I'll leave you with the speech quoted from the movie. (For your info: This was made when the giant ball, a project Claire has been working on, big decoration for the event at Times Square NY was stuck mid air).

"It's suspended there to remind us before we pop the champagne and celebrate the new year, to stop and reflect on the year that has gone by. To remember both our triumphs and our missteps, our promises made and broken. The times we opened ourselves up to great adventures or closed ourselves down for fear of getting hurt cause that is what new years is all about - getting another chance. A chance to forgive, to do better, to do more, to give more, to love more. And stop worrying about what if and start embracing what would be. So when that ball drops at midnight and it will drop, let's remember to be nice to each other, kind to each other. And not just tonight but all year long."

Happy 2012 everyone! God bless!

I wish you a Blessed Christmas, happy Boxing Day & a happy New Year!

hong kong photo diary

I love travelling because I get to immerse myself in another culture and environment. Other than shopping the whole day, indulging in good food and squeezing with everyone else on the MTRs for this trip, I got to visit the small shops, morning wet market, olden day village, view the skyscrapers (which is very different from Singapore's). Seeing what others do everyday be it young or old, look at the way they live, what they speak...was an eye opener. That's what makes travelling so exciting. I always believe that even if the place is boring, there'll always be something unique about it and more importantly, keeping memories of those places in my mind forever. There're so many places I'd love to visit, its countless!

*I had actually scheduled this post to be posted a few days ago while I was away at Hainan Island but it appears that I had made a mistake to the settings hence it wasn't posted at all. I've just returned home from my flight. I'm a little late but still, Merry Christmas everyone! There're 12 days of Christmas isn't it? Hope all of you had a great and blessed Christmas!

marche lovin

Second time at Marche with Sarah and Graceilia, my previous post on Marche can be found here. Switzerland based interior, it brings you to another land, whimsical. It never fail to make me take photographs here, a pity that the staffs do not allow photography on the food stations. Oh well, I can't wait to go back again to have my Gavlax Rosti! Lecker! That's delicious in German.

switch two

Topshop longsleeve, polkadot top, American Apparel disco pants, Doc Martens, Celine-esque tote, Monki pink knit

If you're observant, you'd have noticed everything in the outfit is the same except for the top I wore. It was the same day and awhile after purchasing the knit, I decided to change into it as soon as I stepped out into the cold air. I remembered it was 1st December and there was a sudden drop of temperature, and I could finally wear knit without sweating! Now I'm thinking about the impossible again...If only Singapore has such cooling weather... Good thing is I'll be flying off again next Wednesday, so hello awesome weather!

zhuhai photo diary

My set of photographs taken in Zhu Hai, a half day trip we squeezed in when we were in Macau. The steak and Portuguese cuisine pictured above is one of the most 'worth-it' western food I've had. The portion is filling, the food is good, service is relatively well and it costs only approximately S$5-6 and it comes in a set!

On a side note, I haven't been out of my home apart from going to the gym and for a swim since Monday. This week has been a very mundane & lazy week because I'm broke since the trip...So would you kindly help me out here?
