Adventures in Auckland

To sum up my third Auckland experience: 1. Mediocre room service from Crowne Plaza at 2am local time. Great chips, over-fried snapper fish. But still yum-in-my-tum after 10-hours in the skies. 2. 15°C in the day, with the sun out. What more can you ask for? 3. My favourite cereals and the works – late-night snacking essentials. 4. Thumping theContinue reading “Adventures in Auckland”

Cold coffee in the morning

Without you to hold i’ll be freezing. It’s dark in a cold December, but I’ve got you to keep me warm. Starbucks barista wrote my name in Russian, we almost missed collecting our Caramel Macchiatos! Because seriously what does it say? Can’t freaking read it. Paris Hilton was at Red Square when we were thereContinue reading “Cold coffee in the morning”

5 Things I Learnt about Dubai

This weekend, I’m in Dubai, feeling so lost about the city’s roads, culture, everything. With Harper’s Bazaar World of Fashion, Fashion Forward Season 2, Global Village 2013 – 2014 and all those exciting events going on, no doubt Dubai deserves being hailed as the regional fashion hub. There are just soooo many things I can’tContinue reading “5 Things I Learnt about Dubai”

we lived through a lifetime and the aftermath

For someone who’s a firm believer in New Year Resolutions, I’m not entirely convinced of its life-changing capabilities. Once in a while I look back upon my annual mandate, written with fervent excitement over the promise of a brand new year… “2011….I will make more friends, smile too often, take too many bad polaroids, goContinue reading “we lived through a lifetime and the aftermath”

Fire it up, let’s go get this thing stuck

Dance-date with darling Krys Elisabeth! Instagram sums up my precious one and only day back at home this week. I love you back, KEL to my VJL! 😉 And this is why I have a regular spot at my favourite Starbucks cafe. Somedays I wake up in a foreign bed in a hotel 1200 nauticalContinue reading “Fire it up, let’s go get this thing stuck”

Haneda Tokyo – May ’13

Raiding the local supermarkets is a no-go action in Japan! So well-stocked such that the food&beverage galore is every Japan-enthusiast’s worst nightmare… you’ll wanna cram the entire store into your baggage home.

“live by your own rules”

In my first year at NUS, I made a friend first day at Statistics class. Standing outside lab trying not to look lost, this guy pointed me in the right direction, then held out the door for me (I still remember okay!) I sat next to him, and because I sucked at programming, he helped meContinue reading ““live by your own rules””

140. snowman winking

OMG! CUTE SNOWMAN WINKING or maybe one of his eyes are just spasming from caffeine overdose. Productive day in which … I finished proof-reading my indiv marketing assignment and did 80% of a feminist term-paper…proposal ( not even the actual paper ) Darn marketing group report is due in 4 hours and like…some people areContinue reading “140. snowman winking”
