After checking out my friend Yayi’s popup artwork at Triple Major, we were scouting for somewhere new to shoot some pics and stumbled upon Shao Xing Park which was filled with old people gambling/playing chess or something. These Shanghai parks are always so happening especially on the weekend, it’s like a Chinese grandpa gaming convention every weekend at every park.

On that last Seoul trip, I had just one mission, which was to pick up an oversized wool coat that I saw aallllll the coolest girls in Seoul wearing. I found this grey number at Stylenanda and whilst it wasn’t as oversized as I envisioned (umm everything is “one size only” there so..), I loved the structured collar and the one button open lapel. Bonus is that Jason fits in it too hahaah so now we have to take turns wearing it! If you follow me on instagram, you should know by now that I’m currently obsessed with all things knitting (also check out my Pinterest!). This white scarf was the first scarf I’ve ever knitted and since then, I’ve made another scarf and two hats! My next project will be the Wool and the Gang Hold Tight Clutch (and the lil one too!). DAMN I love WATG SFM! I’m really really intimidated by knitting sweaters but I might start myself off easy and make this sleeveless sweater. I’ll have to see how brave I’m feeling.. Who else is with me on the grandma knitting obsession?

Oh man, the very first time I tried Cajun food was a couple of DAFFs ago at a Ruijin Cajun food stall. Since then, I’ve tackled jamabalaya myself (DELICIOUS btw) and just had some seriously delicious Cajun food whilst at SXSW. The genius dudes over at Ruijin Cajun had another pop-up on Yongkang Lu a while ago and holy love for Cajun food just keeps growing. They seriously need to just open up a Shanghai restaurant ASAP!!!


In love with my new “gup-jai” (checking out boys) sunglasses hehehe


Hi Panda guy!

Call me Boss Lai.

The scarf wrap!

Shao Xing Park!

I recently got the new iPhone 6 Plus (huge huge huge) for Christmas so of course I needed a new custom case and the best place to get one is Casetify! They have this new case called Metaluxe that is a plastic case with a metal frame around the camera lens. The case is made up of 3 parts where the backplate is interchangeable so the designs are infinite! They even have a clear option so you can create your own semi-transparent designs. I’m so so so so in love with my new bandana case like I seriously can’t stop staring at my phone…as if I’m not on it enough already…oops!

Um genius packaging!

Starts as 3 separate pieces (frame, back plate and bottom piece)

Interchangeable back plates!




Oh whoops whoops whoops! It’s been too long now since my last post..but I simply got caught up in work and to be completely honest with you guys, working on a new layout for the blog! I was hoping to debut it on this next post but I’m currently out in Hong Kong again for work so the big reveal has to be pushed back a post or two ):

Ah yes! Another post on Singapore! There have been so many amazing trips back to my motherland in the last few years and this one was definitely the most memorable one with my new husband, mom, sisters and my little niece all along for the ride. Our trip, as all trips should be, was planned around optimizing our meal times (and nap times for baby) and getting in a fun swim or two at the Lloyd’s Inn outdoor paddle pool. Though I used to swim a lot during highschool, I think this dip in the pool might’ve been my first time in almost 8 years or so. Thank god I had a super fun one piece from Merman Hunters to at least cover up more of my ghostly vampire pale skin.

We squeezed in plenty of time to check out some of our old and new favourite spots like Bloesem, Crateful, Tiong Bahru Bakery and Plain Vanilla (Yep all around Tiong Bahru area) and eat at our favourite hawker centers and food courts so it’s 10000% safe to say that this trip was the perfect last holiday of 2014.

OH OH OH! I’m heading to Austin, Texas for SXSW for the first time on Tuesday! ANY and ALL recommendations welcome!

Baby Nana (who is ooooobsessed with footwear, as is our whole family) had taken over wearing my Nike Benassi slides, but who can blame her? They obviously look better on her. xLeft and Right don’t mean nothing to her!
