I have always been an early waker, not as early as my parents and sister (for school) who wakes up at 6am, but I don't wake up past 830am. Mornings are refreshing and it always good to have breakfast and a bit of time together with my family before each of us get busy with life. This morning, I received a postcard sent by N all the way from Oman with love, sipping a cup of English Tea Shop's Earl Grey while reading The Purpose Driven Life and doing personal reflection. It's good to enjoy such relaxed mornings before it starts to get all hurried when a full time job comes my way – can't imagine having to work all day 5 days a week in time to come. #postgraduationwoes

IMG_1283 IMG_1257 IMG_1267 IMG_1273ksdjs IMG_1279dskdj IMG_1282 IMG_1287I have somewhat graduated! I say 'somewhat' because it only feels real after I attend the convocation (that is in September!), I mean that is what marks the official graduation isn't it? That aside, here's a little preview on one of my final year project. PURE – a fashion and lifestyle magazine that focuses on minimalism, which I conceptualised and curated in response to over-consumption and materialism in today's culture, while blurring the line in minimalism between the Western and Asian.

I am trying to refrain myself from ranting on about how tiring it was to create a whole magazine on my own from scratch. It definitely wasn't that easy having to churn out substantial amount of content and then photograph, write and layout every spread. Not to mention the endless editing until the very minute before I sent to print. Accompanying the printed publication is a flash site, branding guidelines as well as a promotional film.

Just recently, I thought about how this project could possibly continue. As much as I love the feeling of holding onto a tangible magazine or book, I wouldn't want to have this project printed (unless I get sponsors or subsidy?) simply because, printing really does burn a hole in my pocket. So I decided I could utilise this digital space as a platform to communicate my thoughts and ideas on living and embracing simplicity in the context of fashion today. It will neither be about fashion trends, making a long list of wishlist nor a never-ending lust for the latest it-bag, it-shoes, it-whatever. It will be about my journey to focus on what matters most, in reducing to enjoy true contentment. I hope you (I don't know who still reads actually) will also embark on this journey with me!

The lively culture of the city remains the same since my last visit in December 2011; bustling streets blended in with new high rise architectures, good food everywhere, bombarded by neon and rusty signboards, endless walking till our feet aches, living in a tiny apartment with metal sliding gate, preserved traditional chinese antiques, Cantonese conversations and the perfect weather one can ever ask for (only when you visit from October to February).

As part of a school trip, I am pleased to have had the opportunity to visit the office-museum of Goods of Desire (worked on a collaborative project for them last August), met lovely people at Shanghai Tangs, Lane Crawford, The Monocle and Hong Kong Design Institute. Truly an enriching and memorable trip with my classmates to mark the end of my 4 years in Lasalle. Sorting out these photos taken 2 months ago made me miss Hong Kong, I think I left my heart there.

Hello! I am not sure who's still reading this space, thank you and hello for those who are! First off, I apologise for a one month hiatus on this blog (at least I'm still relatively active on Instagram). April was a blur, well because of the immense workload for my final major project, I couldn't find time to do up a post at all... It was a daily battle, a final lap, I had to focus on that.

On a brighter note, I am back! Though there will be some preparation for the annual graduation show, school's out until I decide to take up another degree, till then I'm no longer a student. It feels surreal; being accepted into Lasalle not being able to paint or sketch well, going through every semester smoothly. 4 years swept by, I've completed my Bachelor degree studies even before turning 21 (which I will be in October). Plans ahead are uncertain but I'm taking a step at a time, and allowing God to guide me, but now I just want to catch up with life and my family – doing things I can finally do after months, laze around and building a closer relationship with God.

For now, give me some time as I sort out documents and photos in my (super messy) laptop so that I can revive this space. I do have quite a number of plans during my break (of which, job searching is one of my task), so bear with me and check back soon!
