Hello everyone! I know it has been quite awhile since my last post. Being a full-time teacher takes most of my time away. Trying to establish a new routine so the things that I like to do will not take a back seat! Weekends are pretty much the days I dress up because weekdays I have uniform (yes I do, that’s perfectly fine because I love my job. Besides, less headache because I don’t have to think what to wear on a daily basis). This outfit is something I put together on a whim. I wanted to check if the cream long-sleeved shirt I had in my closet will go well with my military detailed sweater. And I was quite pleased on how the whole outfit turn out in the end. The weather in London definitely does not allow me to wear any of my clothes on their own anymore. I am in love with these layers and I am sure I will wear them on repeat. The button detailed shirt from Exhibit.co adds so much character to the sweater. I finished the look with my over the knee flat boots. I can’t appreciate them enough during the colder months. They are truly a life saver in keeping my pins extra warm. I will write on how I make my over the knee boots work for me on my petite frame on my next blog. Till then hope you guys enjoyed this outfit of the Saturday of mine!
Thank you for stopping by my blog!

As the cold weather coming at me full force, I am forced to up my gear and find new ways to dress myself. With a curated but limited amount of clothing that I have I sort of need to experiment with new looks. For me that is what makes dressing up fun. It was my first time trying to layer a sweater on top of a white shirt and to be honest I am loving this look. The neutral colour palette gives this ensemble a clean, crisp, layered yet not bulky feel. The black leather jacket (especially when zipped up) did a good job defining the my waist. I tied the look together with a pointy block heeled sandal and a black handbag – all ready to take a stroll around Belgravia, London. So what do you guys think of this look? And do share your tips on how to dress chic yet warm enough for chilly weather on the comment section below! Have a great week ahead guys. 🙂

After a year in London aka constant chilly weather, I realised that covering my neck is the best solution for someone who is always freezing like me. Somehow I am still freezing mind you but a polo neck just makes me feel that much better. I found this beautiful polo neck long sleeve Breton top from Petite Bateau. It is my second purchase from them and I can’t commend the quality of their clothes highly enough. This brand does not only make beautiful children’s clothing, their adult version is on point as well. The materials and workmanship is top-notch. I bought this particular top during their end of season sale and only cost me £15! My advise for anyone who want to grab something from Petite Bateau, do wait for the sales. It’s worth it provided you can wait! 🙂 It was not massively chilly on this day, so I styled my polo neck striped top with tailored black pants, and a beige cape. I have said this before and I’ll say this again. There is something about Breton stripes that makes anyone feel put together. Let me know if you own one in your collection! And oh, if you guys have any suggestions for polo neck tops/sweaters, do share with me. 😉 Have a great evening!
Thank you for stopping by!
Hi my lovelies, how have you all been?
Autumn is here in London and that means the usual (rain, wind, grey clouds) plus unpredictable temperature. But mostly it will feel like winter. I still have a list of attire to purchase to prepare myself for the coming winter season. The freezing cold weather is just not my thing. However luckily I have made some good purchase to get me through the chill that is starting to creep up on me.
A chunky jumper and a high waisted wide leg white pants. This has been my go to attire for this autumn. The jumper complements the high waisted pants very nicely. Who knew being all covered up would make one feel great. As a separate, the high waisted pants goes really well with cropped tops/blouse (weather permitting). On the other hand, the jumper is great with skinny jeans too.
I am totally in love with this Exhibitstore white wide leg pants. This is my second purchase from this label and I couldn’t be happier. The quality and craftsmanship are just great. I am very proud of this Singaporean brand. Do check them out! They do worldwide delivery with reasonable shipping rate.
I wish all of you a great week ahead!
Till next time,
It has been almost two weeks since I came back to London. I am still reminiscing about Malaysia. It was such a great trip. One occasion that had made the trip so sweet is that I get to experience our Independence Day celebration after a long hiatus. To be honest I can’t remember when was the last time I was back home during Independence Day. The whole vibe on that afternoon was amazing. People from young to old gathered with full of energy, blowing their vuvuzelas. The whole street was lit up by the community’s spirit and zest. Despite the blazing hot weather, I can’t help but feel proud of the country. It has come very far and still striving for the best. Every place has its fair share of positives and negatives, I believe Independence Day is a day that reminds us to focus on the positives and charge forward for a greater existence. It applies not only to a country but to each and every one of us.
Till next time lovelies,

Hi my lovelies, happy midweek!
I have just started full-time job on Monday and gosh it had been busy everyday. I am trying to create a nice routine for myself. Mid week is just as busy but it is nice to crave a bit of time to write blog post.
As you know I spent 3 weeks back home and during that time I sneaked in a quick trip to Singapore. There I visited some of my very good friends and one of them happen to be a talented photographer. I am very lucky to have friends with varying talents. My friend Danny did a mini photoshoot at the Victoria Concert Hall and near Singapore River. It was just a casual shoot but I was definitely stoked with the result. I would like to share some of the shots he took with his beloved Leica. Enjoy and I will see you again this Friday with #pickabookfriday series!

Till next time,
Hi my lovelies! Hope all of you are doing well. Apologies for being away for quite a while. I was off to an extended holiday back home in Malaysia and sort of had a laptop break. Now I am back again in London and slowly getting into my usual routine.
Home. It is not that straightforward for me to define. London is my home because I’m based here with my loved one. Home is also Malaysia where my family resides. Both are near and dear to me. However, when I talk about the Malaysian home one thing comes straight to my mind other than family – FOOD. Food here is heavenly. Period. I credit the rich taste of Malaysian food to the diverse cultural influences we are very much proud of.
For me Home is where I look forward to so much for the love, carefree way of living and knowing there is happiness for the soul. In this blog post, I would like to reminisce the gastronomic delights of my home that time and time again never fails to uplifts my spirits.
Do visit Malaysia, the place has a charm that will get you.
Till next time,
Hello my lovelies, how is everyone doing?
I usually post on Mondays but I missed yesterday. I finally submitted my MA dissertation and decided to take the time off. Literally to chill out and not doing anything. 🙂 I am currently packing my bags and I am very excited to have an extended holiday visiting family and friends back in Asia. Exciting things are planned and one of it involves a staycation with my girls. Just thinking of it makes me so happy. That’s what besties do huh, raise our happiness level to a height you feel like you are basically on cloud 9!
Looking forward to our get together made me reminisce our last holiday in Perth. Perth was great because of the girls. However, Perth was also great because of its lovely charm. The laid back vibe is just something else. One particular place I would like to share with you guys is the Blue Boat House.
Another name for it is the Perth Crawley Edge Boatshed but commonly known just as the Blue Boat House. It is a very instagrammable spot and I couldn’t agree more. The Blue Boat House is surprisingly easy to get to from Perth CBD. We took the Transperth bus no.950 and the ride was about 20 minutes. Since it is located just off the road (it is to your left while driving along Mounts Bay Road heading towards Fremantle), taking the bus is the easiest. Have your google map ready and while you are reaching the destination you will easily spot the boathouse. For those who are driving, it will be slightly difficult to get a parking slot because there is no parking bay for you to stop. However, you can drive ahead for about 500m and turn left into the Perth Dinghy Sailing Club. We were lucky to have the whole boathouse to ourselves and we stayed to take photos after photos till another group popped up. Trust me, if you want to take your pictures in peace do go early. The last thing you want to do is to take your shots awkwardly while have many pairs of eyes staring at you.
Take a look at the boathouse and you would want to make a trip yourself the next time you are in Perth.
Hope you are inspired as much as I am!
Till next time lovelies,
