lulz cheesy title, i know, but i forgot to mention on my previous post that that was my 100th post! So instead I will celebrate my 101st post!! Yay me!

Opening Ceremony for Uniqlo men’s shirt, Zara leather jacket, Topshop jeans, Vans Era, Costume National bag

So it’s been the loooooooooooongest time since I’ve updated..but like I said, this past week was hectic! My mom’s still here visiting and staying with us until we all leave back to Hong Kong for good. And omg I finally graduated!!! My graduation ceremony was on Monday at Radio City Music Hall in New York City and it really was really gorgeous inside, although the ceremony itself got a bit boring and I got restless and fidgety as usual and having a cold did NOT help at all. But all in all it was pretty epic and satisfying..didn’t get to take very nice photos though – wearing a black mumu type gown isn’t very flattering no matter what size you are.

However, this update is dedicated to a random day that my mom, Sha and I did the usual SoHo routine. We stopped by the usual spots and made a naughty detour to this little cupcake store on Spring street just west of Broadway called Baked By Melissa. The tiny little cupcakes are maybe an inch or an inch and a half in diameter and are 100% goodness. The store is only about a meter (almost 4ft) wide window with the menu nice and big in the front, showcasing the 7 different flavours (peanut butter and jelly, peanut butter cup, red velvet, tie-dye, smores, cookies and cream and cookie dough). I read that Melissa does all her baking in the store’s neighbour Bari’s kitchen, how nice of them to share! The little munchkin size bites of heaven are pretty dang good, sooo good that we ended up getting a dozen to share between three of us. Yep a dozen. All worth it :D We brought our little babycakes to Starbucks to eat…where we kinda shared an egg salad sandwich before we devoured our yummykins.

haha my mom was hungry so this is her happy that she finally gets her sandwich

Our first batch of 6! We actually bought 6 first then Sha and mom made me run out to get another half dozen -.-

Red Velvet!

Peanut Butter Cup – my favourite :D

SOOO good it has a dollop of peanut butter in the center!!!

Whilst sitting at Starbys, we spotted these ZOMG DROP DEAD GORGEOUS heels on this very stylish lady. I snapped up my camera as fast as I could, but this is the only good picture I got ): Me and Sha are totally blanking out as to what designer these shoes are. Does anyone else know? They’re like half dark cream and half black – much like the half two-tone things that Chanel has been doing lately. Please tell me if you know who!! I might look stupid for forgetting but I really want to know!


Also, I just wanted to say Thanks to everyone whose been visiting my blog! Can’t believe I made it to 101 posts AND my last post went beyond 30 comments, my first time ever! Lol I’m such a blog-loser but little things make me happy :D

I promise I’ll be updating really soon again with a couple of new things that I’ve finally gotten round to finishing/making so I hope to update really soon!!!!


Lastly I just wanted to say: is it crazy that I’ll be leaving New York for good in 10 days? I’m not sure if I should be sad, happy, relieved or excited?

This is random but I’ve recently stalked your blog, I really enjoy it! I’m pretty sure I wore those two-tone shoes the other day, they belonged to a cool girl from HK in the fashion dept. at my uni. I’m not entirely sure but they were something like Margiela? The cream part was a mesh material and they were super comfy. But then I could be completely wrong. oh well!
Congrats on graduating!
