February 13, 2013


We celebrate Lunar New Year here in Singapore. And Im on a ONE WEEK BREAK from work. To all who celebrates this festive, I wish you GONG XI FAI CAI & WAN SHI RU YI. It translates as "Good Wealth & All things will be well for the new lunar year." Since I am married, I am supposed to give out Ang Pows (Red Packets) to all kids and cousins who are single. Thats a tradition here. Not fun at all. It feels like I'm giving away my money with no returns. I could use those money for a nice handbag. lol. *just kidding

TWO RULES to follow during Chinese New year:
1) Must wear the auspicious color RED. Red top/underwear. Anything in this color works.
2) Do not buy new shoes on the first day of new year. Its bad luck.
Just to share with those who wishes to know :)

Besides that, I have another good news. I am going to be featured in HER WORLD Magazine (local publishing) for this coming APRIL issue. Very thrilled!!
Shall keep this post short & sweet. Till next time...

I'm wearing::

Necklace // MARGIELA FOR H&M
Sunglasses // FLEA market
NYC teesh // ZARA
Silver Clutch // Remake of Margiela x H&M clutch from HK (I like the shrunk version!)
Jersey Pencil Skirt // TOPSHOP 
Sneakers // NEW BALANCE

In the computerized age, blue light openness is practically difficult to keep away from. Blue light from PC screens and computerized gadgets can diminish contrast, prompting advanced eye strain, eye dryness, and retinal harm: Studies recommend that proceeded with openness to blue light after some time could prompt harmed retinal cells. This can mess vision up like age-related macular degeneration. Consequently, it is crucial to utilize blue light impeding glasses against your screen's destructive blue light waves
