I've found a staple in Fall/Winter – a black knit beanie. Rare to see me in a hat and many times, I feel winter beanies make me look bald. I managed to find this hat at Yunnan for only 25 rmb (Even my mom and sister bought the same one in different colours). I felt I needed it and its practical. Qualified in my "Fall/Winter staples list" together with a coat or scarf which are definitely necessities, this too should be in every girl's winter wardrobe.

I'm a sucker for overly sweet food. I like pastries, cookies and such but when it gets too sweet, it becomes a torture to finish eating it. Tried Starbucks' peppermint brownie and the usual green tea frappe when I'm there, and my throat screamed for plain water, it almost got killed by its sweetness. I'm apparently not exactly one with sweet tooth. Somehow as I type this, I crave for some local hokkien mee or black bean beef horfun, thinking about my dinner already.

By the way, enjoy your boxing day! I've advanced my boxing day till yesterday.

The mood for Christmas this year came along with an Italian lunch with The Rake, playing Christmas hymns as a keyboardist for my church band, church Christmas events and my inspiration to make a card. Nothing commerical. I honestly dislike seeing how Christmas, such historic event – the birth of Jesus, became so commercialised, seeing the true meaning being neglected. For the first time I decided to design Christmas cards for my friends. I like sleek, clean designs though I felt it could have been better. I guess something for now within a short amount of time I had to complete. Blessed Christmas!

xThe grey coat. Obviously for me, I only wear them once a year – winter, when I travel overseas. I have about 3 winter coats, this trip to Yunnan I brought a fleece grey coat. Don't think its from a high street or coldwear store, I got it from a local departmental store two years ago. I love how comfortable it is (it acts as a good blanket or a bolster on long bus journeys). I didn't plan to wear it every day but eventually I did simply because the weather is too cold for me and that was the only thing that kept me warm throughout.

IMG_6653I just returned back from a getaway to Yunnan. Most people tend to visit more popular places and most would choose not to come to China but this time I visited China again, my 5th visit to different province. I appreciate China's strong history and culture, and you got to agree with me it's true. Truly an eye opener and a place I can escape from the daily buildings I see and fast paced society in Singapore (partly also an escape from the scorching sun here). But now, back to internship and school's starting soon.

IMG_6407IMG_6412The Editorial Manager at The Rake handed me this box of chocolate Dior gave as a gift during a recent event, and it ended up in my fridge because he didn't bear to eat it. Now I'm in a dilemma whether I should eat it as well because it looks so intricately drawn. Looks more like an art work than something to consume. Really appreciate the effort Dior put into every small things even chocolates. Can I keep the chocolate in my fridge forever or I should just close my eyes and bid it goodbye?

IMG_64292IMG_6436In this age of clothes recycling where we purchase something, wear them a few times, sell, purchase (and you know the cycle continues or you chuck them away). This blouse is considered a senior in my wardrobe, having been kept in it and still worn for close to 3 years. I honestly have no specific reason why I never sell it or stop wearing it, I guess its just comfortable and its basic with a unique collar cut. Moving on, the Margiela x H&M bracelet has joined the league of my everyday wear. I'm still quite amazed by the number of people who noticed this bracelet and told me things like my watch is falling off or asking me for the time. Cute observation, and they wonder why I wear a "fake watch" or "weird accessory" but I like it that seemingly odd way.

"I just want to sleeppp!" clearly the statement lament every morning. I am apparently still not quite adapted to working my entire school break off, also partly how the morning cool weather this rainy season makes it a twice times harder to peel myself off the bed. There're honestly quite a number of things I would like to do during this holiday and hope to strike them off the list, but I'm quite tied down by work. (Kids, treasure your school life seriously) I'm contented on the other hand, that I'm going back to school, that this is just an internship which will end in a blink of an eye. Which got me thinking quite a while now...Should I take up another related degree after my completion of BA (Hons) in Fashion Communications or dive straight into the work force till retirement? I have a year and half to continue thinking till I graduate from Lasalle. Such a tough and crucial decisions to make in life that will path my future.
