A Happy Place

Almost a month ago, I attended a wedding. It was held at a quaint function room up at peaceful Mt. Dandenong. I'm so sorry I couldn't remember the name of the place. :(

This is the first time I've ever attended a wedding after living almost a good 8 years in Melbourne. Time just passes by huh? Just like how Shen Ling is already married. 8 years ago she was probably still at the beginning of her degree in medicine. Now, she has become a fully specialised doctor.

If I ever were to have a wedding, I would definitely do it like hers. It reminds me of Europe, artistic and scenic. And you know how much I love getaways, and this does feels like a getaway. It's like as if I have steped into a different world altogether. Boring city wedding is overrated. :P

Without further ado...

This macaroon signifies the first gift that the groom ever gave to the bride. Everybody has one. :)

The bride's mum, Aunty Janice. She's also my mum's best friend.

Ken. My high school friend in Melbourne. Also brother to the bride.

I love the colour of the deco. Ruby Red.

It matches the bride's dress.

The desserts are to die for. Sticky date pudding, passion fruit cheese cake, brownie, you name it they've got it.

How would you like your wedding to be? I already have a piece of it in mind :P

Lady Gaga and the Girls

The truth is I don’t usually splurge on cosmetics, especially lipsticks. I never really thought they compliment me because as you can see my features ain’t no make-up model. So I usually go for basics and affordability.

I was taking a stroll in David Jones after work on a Friday evening and couldn’t help but noticed the make-up artists at MAC, so impeccably dolled up and groomed. I on the other hand, just sneak quietly to one corner (in my tired and oily skin) of the beauty counter and pretended to be interested in their products where I stumbled across these two tubes. One wrote Lady Gaga and the other Cindy Lauper. I remembered seeing it somewhere before, probably in one of those magazines that I usually read. And then I thought to myself “ah, that’s right, these are the charity lipsticks that I was reading about”. They looked like ordinary lipsticks to me at first, but after I tested out the Lady Gaga version, I instantly fell in love with the colour and the next thing I know, I made my purchase. :P

Love it or hate it girls.

MAC Viva GLam Lady Gaga :)

Birthdays and Love Notes

I never ask alot on my birthdays. I do not appreciate big celebrations merely because I never had one or should I say never had the CHANCE to have one. I usually settle with a holiday/outing with my parents. I even celebrated my millenium birthday in a small town out of San Francisco call Eureka, not far from Lake Taho.

My recent years:

My first birthday present from Yoon Sing was a Tiffany Notes necklace. My second birthday present from him was a Tiffany Notes ring. He usually gets me something meaningful on my birthdays rather than something expensive. He saves the big splurges for other occasions, usually at times where I want something really really bad :P.

From then, I have fell in love with Tiffany Notes simply because it has a plain and simple message on it which every soul in the world are familiar with but yet fail to embrace the saying, 'I Love You'.

I went to Chaddy with my Mum and she decided to contribute to my collection of Tiffany Notes, a bracelet this time. Teehee.

I know its plain and simple but to me it's something meaningful. And it's a little thing called 'Love'.

Definition: Vulgar or irreverent speech or action.

I have been abusing it a lot these days. Or should I say accentuating on it a lot these days.
It came to a point where it is my only mean of expressing my agitated and frantic attitude which I have been developing lately. Up until now, I do not know what erupts the anger inside of me. I am yet to find out, trust me.
One word: Ruthless

I have to put a stop to it before I realise I can never go back. A dignified young lady should never be caught using profanity which I intend to work on being. So that means I need to commit myself into monitoring my language all the time FROM NOW ON!

Till then.

Spring as I see it

Spring oh Spring
What does it bring
Lovely weather & friendly laughter
Till the season after

Spring oh Spring
In my dream
It's an early summer
For I've been looking for that joyful demeanour

My Biggest Fear

Dear confidence,

You have decided to leave me again for a while now. I wonder when you will be back and re-unite with self-esteem. Please don’t be gone for too long. I will cease to exist in this world if you don’t come back soon.

Yours truly.

A very long time ago (not really that long ago), I have ceased to believe in a world where “everything is like a bed of roses”. But recently (not that recent actually), I am starting to believe in it again. Thanks to a certain someone.

But yesterday, I found that kryptonite again. The one that made me lose my sanity and good sense a very long time ago. Now, it’s back again, and I don’t know how long it will stay. I want it to go away. Very badly.

It’s déjà vu I’m telling ya. I’m afraid that history will repeat itself, but definitely with a greater impact this time.

My only hope now is for that someone to not give in. It all started with him/her and now only he/she can save me for now.

Sucks isn’t it?

Tired from being tired... tired from running away... tired from waiting....

One word.


After a few long months or almost a year of waiting, I have finally found peace with reality/fantasy (from different perspectives).

Let there be no more uncertainty, unstability, unsettlingly. Let there be more good to come and let the bitter end be a place to start afresh, a new life with similarity, the wonderful side of a parallel universe. Let it stay.

Sometimes it's Good to Learn to Give Up

I've only got one thing to say, "FML!"

I was never the type of person that let themselves drown in self-pity. But sometimes I wonder why do I have to potray a tough image, not to anyone else but in actual fact I am proving this point to myself. To whom do I have to prove? NO ONE.

My stubborness has taken a toll on my life. I've shut myself away from advises, care, support and people that tried to do something to make a difference for me all these time.

I began to wonder is it time for me to Give Up on that mission impossible and get back on track to reality? And save myself from drowning in too deep, before I become what I have sworn never to be.

The Launch of Robe du Jour

Been working on this site for quite sometime now, and it's finally ready to launch! Yay! I have always wanted to do something with my passion for the fashion industry, and now I have. :)

I have always wanted to share what I have always liked with people who has the same interest as me. The Fashion Junkies event which I organised not long ago have inspired me. The launch of Robe du Jour marks my initial step into the fashion world.

Most people will wonder, what does Robe du Jour really means? It literally means "dress of the day" in French. What I want to create is statement outfits and featured trendy pieces that are versatile which can be worn with anything. Dress it up or dress it down and you'll be ready to rock!

Robe du Jour's debut collection is called 'Metal, Stones and Gretel'. All you ladies thinks that studs should be a statement rather than a trend, has a fetish for fierce leather skirts and insanely high chunky black hooker heels, this collection has pieces that will suit all your everyday pieces. This is the time to bring out your inner phoenix! Enjoy and indulge!
