Happy Chinese New Year!

Urrggggh, I have a bunch of photos to Facebook but darn I'm lazy.

This did it for picture/inspiration of the week for me.
I'm thinking my grunge tshirt and neglected slip dress sounds effortlessly yummy. Perfect. For, you know, when you retire from the pretty and the prissy and the glitz that is atypical of the festive mood and scorn at having to go back to school/work.

Coincidentally, I think the hair with 10 canfuls of hair spray is very befitting of the year of the ox. Hee. I feel silly happy over the tiniest things sometimes, and I like that.

It's not too good that I think Irina rocks smoking shots best huh? Whooops.

Is it weird that I'm thinking of joining a photography club with a half-decent not-SLR digital camera? Meh whatevs, they can kick me out if they're intimidated by the pinkness of my camera :)

The Granny's Tablecloth of a Blazer.

sigh I know, I suck as a blogger. Even now, I'm waiting for commercials to end so I can continue with American Idol audition madness. And- hold that thought, I'll be back next commercial!

HAHAHA someone just said rectum! RECTUM!


If you know me enough or read my blog long enough, you'd know I like my blazers. It's been a while since I last went hunting for them, so I was deciding on what kind to get. The initial thought was to get white since it's a nice safe colour, or hot pink, but good luck finding such a colour in the market.

Then I came across these on the runways of Betsey Johnson's Spring 09.

Deliciously tacky floral blazer in the gaudiest of blue pastel, sounds good to me. I'm pretty sure i can dig up a similar looking one on vintage shopping hunts, coupled with some tailoring and neutrals all round, I'm good to go :)

Hmm. I miss smog machines.

My hair is still the same - too undecided, tsk.

Happy OH to the NINE

Overdue but HAPPY NEW YEAR :)

2008 seems like a blur of a whirlwind that currently at 2 in the morning and groggy but insomniac, I can only remember the past month. Which is easy, considering it mostly involves me working my ass off. And picking the old noodle a tiny bit, I remember 2008 as housing one of the most intense moment of my life, almost breaking me with tempts and emotions.

And then the past week was the one week I finally took a break, and school starts this week. Woohoo. That's right I'm cheering for school because it's an engine things to begin.

You know how they say the new year should begin positively, as it reflects how the rest of your year are going to be like? Hm.

On the eve of new year's eve, I caught up with old friends. On new year's eve, bestie and I got high over Ponyo Ponyo and Kung Fu Milk Tea and talking about playing dance dance revolution on Wii and then rushed home to watch The Little Nyonya. Which means we both spent new year's at home :). And screaming a hearty HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! out the window when the clock strikes. Fun fun fun I love it when my mom calls me crazy.

And then the next day I went across the border via the new checkpoint - super easy and fuss-free that I heaved a huge sigh of relief that FINALLY it's been done. I fought with my mom over the most silliest thing ever, but I found out what a cool aunt I have and how unconsciously comfortable I was with her.

Then shortly after, I made a bad decision over something I should've known better. I'll be over it, I always do. On the bright side, I was grasping at hopes and dreams that didn't die, and I discovered things about myself that were crucial in keeping my head high.

Oh, and it's funny what hearing "I like your groove-" does to you. Yeeeaaaah baby I'm groooovy.

The next day, I had a phone fight with my dad.

Hmm. Bittersweet beginnings, bittersweet year?

Resolution #1: Not only to be financially independent, but take risks. Studentry is the perfect excuse.

Resolution #2: Rediscover passion that I've lost and let lost in youthful ignorance.

Resolution #3: Treasure the friends I have and have made, and don't kill myself over those who... are plagued with circumstances.

Resolution #4: Travel more yoooo.

I'm sure I'll randomly come up with resolutions here and there that I'll eventually forget about until I fulfill it.

Typing out my 2 am thoughts is relieving. Resolution #5: Blog more.

Happy New Year, and cheers.
