Outfit

RICE PACKAGE


H&M leopard skirt, Giordano XXL tank, Zara cardigan, PedderRed boots, DIY geometric necklace.


H&M studded bracelet, Hermes multi-wrap leather bracelet, DIY rhinestone bracelet.

Oh man, since it’s been almost 2 weeks since my last post, I know this is going to end up being one of those super long and lengthy posts! Anyway, excuse my disgustingly messy hair in the first few pics up there..PB clearly missed out on telling me I was walking around all day looking like a fool. So on Saturday night I decided to wear my new boots out for the first time! They were pretty good and comfy considering I walked around for a couple of hours. Towards the end of the night they only started hurting around the sides of my wide feet -.- Oh yeh, in the pics you can also see one of my new necklaces I made. I actually made this a while ago but never wore it with a blog-worthy outfit. Below is a better picture of the necklace from a different day.


A close-up of my H&M skirt. I got this on sale for 70% off! It is an extremely small size for me (XS to be precise) but I surprisingly fit into it comfortably……and the fabric is REALLY stretchy haha


heaheahea try and spot PB’s feet :D


A closeup of the rhinestone bracelet I put together the other night. I used a thick piece of cotton thread/string and wrapped a million times over the rhinestone. Actually, I think the back of the bracelet looks quite nice.

I’m sure by now most of my dear readers know my love and obsession with Lane Crawford but these displays at the Times Square store will definitely explain it all.


So fking good. I want a pair!!!


Inside the store (2nd floor, women’s department)

Seriously how awesome is Lane Crawford yes? The displays are basically showing their awesome in-store magazine The Stylehunter but in real products and on mannequins. I was going to scan the women’s and men’s Stylehunter pages but you can view it online by clicking right here! (Definitely worth the clicking!!)

On another totally random point, me and PB went to Macau a couple of weekends ago. We planned for a quick trip (like just for half the day) and ended up having a REAL quick trip (like 2 hours! haha). We weren’t planning on staying the night or anything but we just had to go for the day, hem hem. We didn’t plan anything so as soon as we got off the ferry from HK, we hopped on the first random shuttle bus we saw and ended up going to City of Dreams. TOTALLY RANDOM haha. Anyway, no surprise here: we headed straight to the food court and initially we wanted some good Portugese food..but of course we wound up just eating Japanese food and after a quick stroll through the casino we went BACK to the food court for Crepes :D


Me and PB on the bus to City of Dreams


The random beautiful shapes and textures on the roof/columns of the food court haha


PB being mad cos I wouldn’t let him eat the crepe until I photographed it


Banana and Chocolate Crepe. Banana and chocolate crepes are the ONLY time I would EVER eat a freshly cut banana. Otherwise I haaaaaaaaaaaaate them. They smell and they’re disgusting. (Other times I’ll eat them cooked are in Helie’s baked banana sponge cake and in Singaporean Lapis cake).


Yummmmmmmmm

I recently discovered this amazing sticky rice (Chinese style) called QQRice. It’s this little stall at Hang Hau MTR station, exit A. Basically you get to pick 6 ingredients and the type of rice you want then they pack it all in and shape it, for only $16!!!!


Obi pretending to be a good doggie to see if he could get a nibble! (also there to show some size relation)


Yummmmmmmmmm our cutie little rice package!!


We picked sweet corn, chicken in sesame sauce, roast duck, sweet radish, yams and Chinese mushrooms. mMmMmMMmMmMm

Okay last but not least, I’m kinda bored and waiting for the water heater to heat up again so here’s a quiz that my buddy Yoshi (with her newly platinum awesome hair) tagged me for a million years ago:

What is your current obsession?
Thinking of what big black bag purchase I’m going to make once I’ve saved enough money.

What is your horoscope and do you relate?
Cancer. Apparently us crabbies are meant to be good at keeping secrets due to our hard shell..so I guess I am good at keeping secrets?

What are you wearing today?
The yoosh (as in the usual, does anyone know how to spell “yoosh” better?): Black AA tshirt dress, tights, Frye harness boots, a flannel shirt over and my Mulberry bayswater.

WhatÒ€ℒs for dinner?
Just had some chicken in a kinda curry like thing, boiled cabbage, a shot of rice and yummmy peanut soup.

WhatÒ€ℒs your favorite decade, fashion wise?
Tbh, I’m not super super familiar with all the specifics of each decade. I love what’s happening now, but if now is a revival of the 80s and 90s then I guess the 80s and 90s. I suppose I was too much of a tot back in those times to appreciate anything.

What are your must haves for summer?
Oversize tshirts, denim vest, converse, loads of bracelets (since long sleeves in winter cover them up) and this might sound weird but black tights (best for any time of the year).

What would you love to be able to afford?
god damn yoshi why did you have to say family, I was thinking more along the lines of more shoes and handbags haha well okay maybe I wish I was able to afford my expensive taste whilst still being able to provide my mama with her own wants/needs.

What is your favorite piece of clothing from your own wardrobe?
Well the few things that I wear the most are my denim vest, all my black tights, black bandage skirt and PB’s tshirts.

What is your dream job?
Designer (graphics, apparel, jewelry).

WhatÒ€ℒs your favorite magazine?
US/UK Elle, US/UK Harper’s Bazaar, i-D, IdN and POP (rip).

What do you consider a fashion faux pas?
Guys wearing sandals/flip-flops with jeans (i.e. Abercrombie white boy style) and kitten heels (nooooooooooooo)

Describe your personal style?
Casual but trendy? and lots and lost of accessories.

Which Beatle is your favorite?
I dunno? Paul?…maybe Ringo…cos no one ever likes Ringo ):

What are you proud of?
My mom affording to pay for me and ninz’s university.

EDIT: I forgot to tag people!
Ninz, Ivy, Sophia, graphickid, Katlin and whoever else wants to do it!

Yep, Obi uses laptops as pillows!

    I just got here about 2 weeks ago and absolutely love it. I’ve been here twice before but i was so young then i can hardly remember much about those trips. i’m currently at Bentley Communications a PR firm and it’s great! Mostly everything is conducted in cantonese which is abit of a culture shock but all’s good!

    it’d be GREAT if you could suggest some of your fave places to eat! I’ve been spoilt rotten with the cheap fast food, noodle houses and bakeries (have to buy something everytime i pass one) around causeway bay and North Point. i’ve actually used your list of places to go to from your FAQ post as a reference of places to check out already!

  14. denise, i fkn love the rhinestone bracelet you made!!!

  15. i’ve been to your blog a few times and i love reading it! esp the food photos, yummm. you and momo are so cute together haha. keep on posting great stuff.

The photos of you and your boyfriend are cute. I don’t think I’d be able to do something so spontaneous but it sounds like a good day, I wish I could! AND those rice things look yummy (if they didnt have meat in them cause I’m a veggie.) AND how could you not like bananas:O they’re my favoritee! They’re like chocolat in fruit form!!!

  33. I have so much to say, I don’t even know where to begin! :)

    First, I LOVE that H&M leopard skirt. I find a lot of animal printed items kind of tacky, so it’s hard finding that one good one, you know? And that skirt is definitely chic and you def know how to werk~ it.

    Second, you have the most amazing collection of jewelry, especially that ring you’re wearing while eating that crepe. I’m not a jewelry type of girl, but sometimes I wish I was but I just think rings and most necklaces look weird on me haha. And speaking of crepe, is PB your boo?

    And your dog is adorable!
