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,
Outfit: Zara jeans, Zara slip on, Zara long sleeve ruffle top.
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,
Hello lovelies, how are you guys? I hope everyone is filled with lively spirit!
It is Friday again or should I say Friyay ^^ I always feel yay-ing on Fridays because it is a moment where I can sit down, pick a book and kind of relax after a week of work. In today’s #pickabookFriday post, I will be talking about another Mitch Albom’s gem:
Tuesdays with Morrie
The story is told from the author’s perspective based on his life experience and his encounter with Morrie Schwartz, his University professor who is ill from Lou Gehrig’s Disease. The author is intrigued by his professor’s attitude towards death and his life lessons leading to a weekly meeting on Tuesday. This story takes its time to unfold yet leaves the reader wanting more. It is such a page turner this one.
In this story, you will see a lot of focus on character development for both the author and his professor, Morrie. With every page you get to know Morrie a little bit better and connect to this personality and I feel that is a beautiful thing a book could give the reader. Tuesdays With Morrie is a story that will help to remind us to stop and remember what is important in life because tomorrow might never come.
Some beautiful takeaway from this book:
- Sometimes you cannot believe what you see, you have to believe what you feel. The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love,and to let it come in.
- Forgive yourself before you die. Then forgive others.
- Death ends a life, not a relationship.
- Once you learn how to die, you learn how to live.
- Love wins. Love always wins.
I think we can all learn something from a good book and I hope this book will enrich you in one way or another.
Have a great weekend guys!
