Wrenched Insides

Spent a lovely day yesterday with my Mother & Sister in Universal Studio Singapore! The new Transformer's 3D Ride is BEYOND THE REALM OF EXTRAORDINARY. Wish I could have shared more visuals with you, but a pity my battery went flat in the middle of a very heated snapping marathon. My cry of despair could be heard across the entire theme park. I'm in love with Universal Studios, its really intriguing to see different fantasy worlds overlap & interlink to form one massive dream haven. (then again, the king of dream haven has still gotta be Disneyland) And trust me, it doesn't feel like you are in Singapore anymore when you step into a place like that.

Oh & if you haven noticed, YES my image quality just got better! :D Its all thanks to my new DSLR, he works some wonderful magic.

The new year is right next door day, & I feel like I'm stuck in this frozen alternate realm where nothing seems to progress. Thoughts?

Lets get lost


2 things nobody can live without - food & friends. Together, they work some magnificent magic indeed. Here's a few shots of the adorable human companions I've had the pleasure of meeting for this week. Holidays are finally here, & I'd definitely made it a point to do some catching up with friends & food alike. Got myself about fully booked for next week as well, whew. If only days like these could be an eternity. ლ(´ڡ`ლ)

Irrational is the new norm

(here's something you never see on this blog - me in specs)

There is no acceptable excuse for my erratic blogging schedule. But right now, you'll have to pardon me for doing another Houdini- because my common tests start this Saturday. (Yes, its quite stupid isn't it? To have tests on Saturdays -_-). Whats more hilarious is my birthday is next Thursday (just the day right after my last test. Joy to the world) & I absolutely haven't got the foggiest what to do. High tea again with my family? I'm actually in the mood for something more exciting, like skydiving with a five-man Swedish team, but that's clearly impossible financial wise.

Its December right now, with Christmas peeking right around the corner, but it still feels like October/November. The Holiday Mood is simply not reaching me at all, could be due to the fact that when all other youngsters out there getting their funk on with their friends during their December Holidays, we polytechnic students are still stuck having SCHOOL & whats worse, TESTS. :c

Yesterday night I had a dream where an octopus was crawling across my living room wall while my friends were over to play. It was oval-like & purple. All my friends started screaming their heads of like Edward Cullen just proposed to them.

Anyway I'd like to say I'm really grateful for all the reader I've had till now, friends & strangers. Your mysterious & faint presence is a heartfelt reminder that I'm not talking to myself here. Really. 'w'

Alright, see you later alligators.

Being thoughtful can be painful

Its been only a week, but it felt like a month. Finally, a time to catch a breather & return to this sacred space of mine.

These visuals have been way overdue, sitting quietly in a corner of my memory card, waiting like a sad abandoned child. As you can see, I've really been into metallics of late. Scored these incredible, drop-dead amazing Silver Litas at the nastygal sales for only 3/4 of the usual price! Absolutely adore how they turn out in photos, with the glorious daylight reflecting off the silver surface. ヾ(@^∇^@)ノ And those contrasting red laces... HOW CAN THIS BE ON SALES. Its one of my recent happy online purchases that I'm really thankful for. 。◕‿◕。 Oh, & imagine my immense joy at finding the perfect gold & silver cuffs. Goes with literally anything & everything. And my 2 new knits from Europe's H&M! They are so versatile & comfy I've been wearing them to school far too often. Especially love the 'coated' effect on each knit, undeniably unique & cool! The last photo is a recent acquisition of mine - a khaki coat with thin leather sleeves, just wonderful for Singapore's weather.

Dear me, I've been blabbering too much haven't I. ( ꒪Д꒪)ノ Just wanted to share some of my new wardrobe favorites & staples. What are yours?

These days, I often find myself wandering around alone. Not because I have no friends, in fact I realize I've been subconsciously trying to find ways or time to be alone in my own company. Then again, I like being alone sometimes, though now more often than usual. It gives me time & space to think.

Most importantly, it gives me distance to observe.

Even if you have to push everyone else away to make it right

Joo Won in Ojagkyo Brothers Ep 28

Every character he takes on is too beautiful & raw for words. If you haven't heard of him yet, start by watching his award winning debut (yes, he won an award after a single TV debut ) performance in Bread, Love & Dreams.


Just dropping in to say hi! (supposed to be on a week hiatus) I've noticed that recently my blog has seen a remarkable surge in Russian visitors for some reason? Здравствуйте!

The week has been a Wizard-of-Oz-worthy tornado of never-ending projects, assignments & worries. At times when it seems to be getting better, everything suddenly solidifies into a mass of pure academic agony that can only be defined by the common phrase: "shit-happens".

P.S fixed my formspring, its no longer private! Sorry for the confusion :s

Stay with me. Till everything withers. Till everyone disappears. Till we disappear.

Brushing Past, Seeing Past

Taken on the night after the Topshop Party.

Decided to take some self-shots since for once, in a rare blue moon, I actually had some make-up on. (putting aside the fact that it looks very amateurish, hah) I'm madly in love with this Topshop leather Jacket I grabbed at the Party, the perfect concoction of simplicity & subtle street cool. Whats more, it fits me just great, probably the greatest miracle in the history of leather jackets. (every other one I tried one has always been slightly spacey) Hello new wardrobe staple.

It saddens me to say that I will have to leave this space for awhile. The sudden onslaught of 4 projects & an estimated 9 assignments (or more) has forcibly chained me to the harsh reality of a sad student life. The fact that I am limited to only spending $3 a day for the next 2 weeks isn't helping much either. (dirt-broke again, don't ask)

Well, if you are bored, you can always drop me a question/ramble at my new formspring! c:

Thus, my short escape ends here. See you soon strangers & friends. ; ^ ; /

Has this ever happened to you:

You are sure you have made a right choice
since it has fulfilled its predominant initial objective of the choice itself
but you don't feel happy at all
then is the choice you have chosen still a 'right choice'?

I can't come to a definite answer.

Topshop Breakfast Party

A happy morning spent at the Topshop Breakfast Party on Saturday! Unfortunately since we got stuck in a morning jam & a ridiculous Car park queue, we missed the opening of the party itself. Note to self: suck it up & get a cab next time you fool. It felt extremely liberating to finally be able to take pictures in Topshop! Albeit all the excitement & frenzy of being surrounded by their heavenly new arrivals plus the large crowd of fabulously dressed-to-kill people, I stupidly blissfully forgot to snap some shots till the very last minute. (on a side note, doesn't the black boots remind you of the Acne Pistol ones??) I have to admit, I'm certainly not used to events like these. Must have been the most awkward turtle there. (◎-◎;) Haha, it brings a smile to my face when I recall this conversation I had with a NYLON magazine photographer:

*in the middle of an outfit interview*
Photographer: Oh is that your mother?
Me: ah, yep
Photographer: OHMYGOSH your mom shops at topshop with you, so cute!

(ノ ̄U ̄)ノ

I also had the pleasure of meeting Shane from mymomhatesfashion! I has noticed him right away in the store because of his killer cool blazer. Before we talked, I was actually thinking up of 165 different ways to make off with it, heh. He's great fun to talk to as well! But for some unknown reason my camera went slightly out of focus for this shot. I presume it because his outfit is probably too amazing for my camera to capture.

That's all from me now. Excuse me while I revert back to geekygirl_1994 & attempt to prepare myself for this week's Business Law Test. (+_+)

Handicapped Heart

Guess what came in the mail last week~
Finally, my very 1st film camera! Can't wait to give it a try! (≧▼≦;) Now what should I name it? By now you might have noticed that I have this naming habit for favorite non-living material items. (Miu Miu bag - Mei Lan, JC Buster Boots - Harley).

The past week has been a relatively interesting & enjoyable one! Saturday was a blast with an invitation to the Topshop Breakfast Party (photos tomorrow!) & Anime Festival Asia with Sinyee! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

This sounds quite sudden & pretty out of the blue, but I'm so grateful for everything right now. I really am.
