Chanel Fall 2014/15 : Grocery Shopping in Chanel’s Mall

The setting was about shopping Chanel’s Megastore. It felt like a candy land; a piece of conceptual artwork! I wish I could shop at Chanel’s Megastore with Rihanna and Cara and Joan! For this collection, it is all about the sneakers. I am in love with Chanel’s sneakers! How can anyone say no? Karl had to continue from the previous collection. Those sneakers are hard to forget. The trench coat were calling out Chanel. Karl was heading for a sporty look when Cara opened the show with raggy workout-wear. However, there was chicness to the outfits. There were variation of silhouette going on. It was somewhat comforting and yet, classy as there were oversized onesis and trench coat. The fabric which was commonly seen is metallic, velvet  and more metallic!

Even the shopping basket is so chic. It is like a fashion shopping megastore. I will totally dress up as Chanel and be in there! I totally love what Karl has done to Chanel’s bag. It did play a part in a megastore but yet, it look so elegant. Karl just make grocery shopping looks fashionable.

This is my favourite part of the show. The sneakers! If only I can have the knee cut sneakers! It is something I would wear on my causal basis.  Furthermore, I love how the sneaker played with materials of knitting and holograph. I just want to have one! Brilliant.

Well, I am finally back at blogging again! Be sure to catch me here often with all these Fall Runways going on. Been catching up and looking at runways by the brilliant designers! Before we get into the Fall Runway, let’s go to the OSCARS Red Carpet! I mean how can you not be prepared for this! Though Jennifer Lawrence fell within minutes on the Red Carpet. Well, she is the only celebrity that fall and laughed it off anyways! Well, let’s get straight to the point and judge the Best Dressed and Worst Dressed in this year’s Oscars!


Cate Blanchett, Oscars

Cate Blanchett in Giorgio Armani 

I am not a big fan of sparkles and sequins on Red Carpet but this dress just work. Brilliant design. The details were brilliantly done. It wasn’t heavy in details. It is constant with those sequins and beads which worked very well to make it as a Red Carpet Dress. With the light material, the dress was glowing and dreamy. Plus points will be her hair, her make up and her accessories. Everything just came into the place. I really love the classy hair updo with this dress. Gorgeous! 

Lupita Nyong in Prada

Congrats to her in winning her first Oscars! She has caught my attention for quite some time. I love the colours she always wear for Red Carpets or for some events. She looked stunning! This dress was simple. Pleating and the low-V just work for her. In addition, the pastel blue suits her. Elegant piece of work! 

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Couture 

J.L is the girl that falls during Oscars! I love this dress on her! It shows off her curves. Her body looked flattening here. With her backward necklace, the whole look works. This tomato red looks great on her. She looks fierce and strong! 

Angeline Jolie in Elie Saab Haute Couture 

Brad Pitt looked hot as always! But the focus here is Jolie. She looked absolutely stunning. I am glad she drop the black look and go for other shades of colour. From what I can remember from Jolie is she always love to wear black.Well, I admit that black is a hard colour to say no to. But this Elie Saab’s dress looks classy on her! Beautiful! 

Amy Adams in Gucci

The silhouette of this dress fits Amy Adams perfectly! I love the blue tone on her. Though, I wish she could wore a light jewelry on her neck to complete the look. Probably a necklace that suits the earrings as well. I guess it will turn up a notch!

Anne Hathaway in Gucci

Well, the fashion police said Anne was wearing an amour in front of her and named it the worst dress but to me, it was one of the best dressed. Yes, I do agree there is alot going on but the dress’s silhouette was simple and she toned down in her accessories. It was all about the dress! I adore this dress on her! She pulls it off!

Emma Watson in Vera Wang

I love her look! The dress’s metallic material and playing with shades of black looks chic and sexy! This Wang dress suits her very well! I love the cut of the dress at the end. Well-executed!


Olivia Wilde in Valentino

Among all the pregnant ladies, Olivia Wilde dressed the best that day! It was simple, neat and clean. I love the turtle neck and the colour of black and white going on. The dress looks good on her with the bump there! Mother-to-be looking good!


Idina Menzel in Vera Wang

I love Vera Wang but this dress didn’t felt right for a Red Carpet. The drapes were overwhelming plus the dress colour was not an appealing colour. In addition, the material of the dress looks stiff and heavy. That’s why the look didn’t come off very well. Maybe if the lower part of the body did not have the drapes and goes for a simple flow from the upper body to the lower body, I guess it will look better. The upper part of the dress looks amazing by itself!

Elsa Pataky 

I don’t know who is the designer behind her dress but I don’t love the silhouette going on. I think she is a gorgeous woman but this dress plus her bump does not look good at all. Her bump is huge and this dress is just enhancing the bump on her. It did not look pleasant. The low cut and the waist line do not complement each other. I feel that if the waist line marking is not there and it just flow, it will look better as her dress has a lot of details going on.

Sally Hawkins in Valentino

It is the hair. If the hair was done up and style nicely, I think this look might work. Right now, this whole look have too many things going on. The dress is gorgeous! I love Valentino’s dresses but her heavy huge curls just make her appearance looked like there is so many things going on. She got to do it up! Maybe it will make a difference!

Anna Kendrick in J. Mendel 

I think this is the worst dressed? Well, there was so many things going on : the back of the dress, the show off my leg look, the front of the dress, the red stones on the front of the dress, the pleating. There is way too many things. She is a gorgeous woman but this dress is not the Red Carpet dress. Honestly, I can’t look at it for long. It is just all over the place. It is just too much!

Penelope Cruz In Giambattista Valli

Firstly, I love the colour and I love Giambattista Valli’s clothes!  However, it is just there is so much cloth going on and it just reminded me of a Sari. Drapes and Drapes and more Drapes. And she is holding extra cloth around her arm. If those excess cloth can be removed, maybe it will look better!

Well, I come to the end of the Red Carpet Discussion! Well, leave a comment if you like! Thanks for reading!

DSquared2 ~ Autumn/Winter 2014/15, Ready-to-Wear


IF, three cities in, anyone is suffering from fashion fatigue, then Dean and Dan Caten have got it covered. This morning they set up a “hospital” for those feeling victimised of the fashion variety as their autumn/winter 2014 charade kicked into action and Sixties glamour – albeit purposefully dishevelled at times – took to the catwalk. Ankles on super high sandals came suitably shackled (for restraint purposes, obviously), and every outfit had an air of Norma Desmond about it, this Hollywood star now hiding behind her bejewelled sunglasses and satin column gowns in the confines of the DSquared2 institution.

Missing IN Action


Hello Readers! ( If there is any out there reading )

Well, this year has been a pretty rough start with my Final Year Project going on which deals with animation. I had zero knowledge on animation and is expect to finish it within 2-3 months. Well, I managed to finish it but it is not perfect. There are flaws in the video but I am proud of how much I done and even if my lecturers don’t appreciate it, I will still pad my shoulder and tell myself : Good Job!

Another big news is I am graduating! Well, 3 years in Polytechnic is not very long after all. Reality is hitting me real hard. Now, I am panicking on what job I should take or what is my future gonna be like. Life is unpredictable. All I know is I want to do something I truly love and enjoy. In 20 years down the road, I don’t want to be an old hag that regretted her decision on her career path. I want to live my life the way I want. Even though it is just a dream/ a goal, it still is a dream. You don’t just tell someone to drop their dream. You encourage people to pursue their dreams, no matter how crazy it seems. As long as someone tells you that you can do it, you eventually will! Well, I wish my parents were that supportive.

Well, I just got to push on.


Elie Saab Spring 2014 Haute Couture : Dreamy

Elie Saab is one designer that made me look forward to see his collection for every runway. What I really like about him is his detailing and technical work. You can see my post on my top 10 favourite designer. 

Silver Favourites, 1903, oil on wood

This collection is brilliantly executed. He seemed to be inspired by the nineteenth-century Dutch artist Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema painted scenes from the Roman Empire. His subjects always seemed to be reclining amid marble statuary, and there was a good chance that the Mediterranean Sea was shimmering in the background. His artwork has a sense of dreamy and romantic element to it. This is reflected on Elie Saab’s Haute Couture Collection.

Elie lifted the pastel colour elements from Alma-Tadema painting; blush pink, hydrangea blue, and lilac. He used the simple cuts of a classical dress of empire waist and the gently draped volumes. It was feminine and light. It had this red carpet touch. He also extracted the Roman Clothing Silhouette like Stola and Polla; playing with the factor of pleating. His signature embroideries and appliqués were a handful of gossamer-light pleated goddess gowns.

I love how he make sheer seem so elegant. The runway brought us into the world of Roman Empire in Spring. Every girl would want to have a Elie Saab’s dress. It is great to see him moving from his monochromatic comfort zone by boasting fluid skirt with an ombre of violet, citrine, vivid blue, and coral, like an Alma-Tadema sky.

He ended his collection with a Haute Couture Bride Gown. Spectacular

The Window to Our Soul

3rd day of 2014. I wanted to start this year well but things don’t usually go the way we plan. Relationship have its ups and downs. I envy cute couples on street; when the boy looks at the girl from the side or when their eyes met. It feels sincere and true. As the saying goes, ” Eyes are the window to our soul. ” Truly it is. You can never lie with your eyes about your feelings. Emotions are translated through our eyes. To look into your partner’s eyes, you can identity if he/she is true to you. I wish I can look into my boyfriend’s eyes; to make me feel less insecure and believe in our relationship more.

Didn’t manage to see him for more than 2 weeks and when he came back, we barely got time for each other. He is busy earning money and studying so am I. Having a part time job and school is not easy. With CCA, it is even more tiring. As a girl, it feels so distance like I barely feel him around. I think most girls will feel this way if they had lesser time with their boy. I just feel a ting of sadness as I can’t hold him like I use to. I can’t glance at him from a side. I can’t see his face and look into his eyes. I only have a picture of him to look at.

Sometimes, when the night comes, my mind run wild. 

Model Crush : Erika Linder

One word about this girl : Amazing

Erika Linder is an Androgynous Model, like Andrej Pejić. She is known to be the young Leonardo Dicarpio. Furthermore, she is only 20! Sometimes, I asked myself what am I doing with my life when I see young people accomplish their goal at my age. Envy. She is so charming. I can’t get my eyes off her. She is beautiful and hot at the same time. She is also featured in Katy Perry’s Music Video : Unconditionally. I think to myself : What a beautiful creature on Earth. Have you seen her male model shots? It is to die for.

Her Young Leonardo Dicarpio Shot. 


You got the taste of her male shots. Now, let’s embrace this female model shots. She is a goddess. I wonder how she do it, looking so good in both male and female shot.

Amazing right! Damn. Love her to death!

2014 ; A new beginning as many says


Well, as many says new year for a new beginning; a brand new start. People creating their new year resolution; trying to do things that they want to accomplish before 2014 ends. Honestly, new year resolutions do not work on me. In the past, I did create a list of new year resolutions but I always gave up half way. Well, I am freaking lazy; the laziest human being on Earth. Okay, lazy is not the correct word. Probably, the most negative person on Earth. Well, I guess many feels the same as me. Being positive in the first quarter of the year but that positive energy just dies. A year will bound to have ups and downs. Downs hit me real bad; sometimes I can’t fight back and let it take over my emotions. I can’t predict what will happen in a year; will I be successful, will I fail in my studies. No one really knows. All I know is treasure every single day; every moment is precious. Even when life just sucks or give me a freaking hell, I just got to stand firm and strong. Hence, I don’t want let the negativity get to me and I don’t have to wait for new year to get things done. Be it 1st January or 31st December, each day count. Each day can make a difference in your life. You can end up doing the craziest thing within a day. You don’t have to create a list to do within a year; create a list that you wanna accomplish within your lifetime. 

Don’t get me wrong, I love new year’s eve! I love the night parties when people gather around, drinking and chatting with one another; talking about their life, their memories. It is a nice night to hang out with your friends. Last new year’s eve ( 31/12/2013 ), I was with my friend and we were at her cafe. It was quite quiet during 10 pm surprisingly. We were sitting outside, listening to great jam, looking at our surrounding and talking about our usual stuff. We just love looking at people doing their thing; getting drunk, crying, laughing, dancing. The place was bursting with life. I never felt alone. Everyone was comfortable with one another; stranger to stranger. When the new year’s eve countdown began, the street were filled with people shouting when the clock strikes 12. When it did, everyone celebrate with toast of their alcohol and there were champagne bottles popping in the streets, people hugging one another. It was a joy to watch. Strangers hugging strangers. It was filled with such positive atmosphere. Somehow, I secretly wish everyday was new year’s eve so strangers will never be strangers.

I hope you guys enjoy your new year’s eve countdown! And hope 2014 will be a good year for everyone!

Overseas Trip : Danang, Vietnam I


I just came back from one of my most amazing getaway; Danang, Vietnam.



My Hotel Room

A drink at the Balcony 


The view at the Balcony


 The Marble Mountain

The hotel I stayed in was great; an ocean view at the balcony, a huge bathtub for me to soak in and enjoy the view at the same time and a comfortable bed for me to cuddle in. The hotel is just beside the Marble Mountain and it is 1o-15 minutes walk away! The weather there was cold, temperature was always at 18/19 degrees. Day 1 was nothing much as the hotel I am in is far from Danang City and located beside the beach. Furthermore, I arrived around 5 plus and the sky was starting to turn dark. The sun sets faster in Danang. By 6 pm, it is already pitch black. The hotel is more for relaxation and I was practically a pig; eat, shop and eat again. The food in Danang is never ending. I ended by Day 1 with rose wine at the balcony! A great view!

Day 2 : Hoi An

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset


I love hotel’s breakfast buffet; omelette, pancakes, loaves of bread and jams, yogurt, fruits, salad and cornflakes. I can never stop eating! But the negative point about this hotel is the breakfast buffet is always the same; only minimum changes which is only 1-3 types so after awhile, I kind of get sick of it or feel lost as I don’t know what I wanna eat! But as long as there are eggs, salad, fruits and bread, it seems good to me! Most of the resort near the China Beach have shuttle buses to Hoi An; a town in Danang where you can buy local delicacies and tailor your clothes or make your own shoes. However, be warned that it is pricey doing your own clothes and shoes. A leather bag can cost about 125 USD. Trust me, it ain’t worth it. But I do see quite a few Caucasians tailoring their own clothes or making their shoes. It is up to you honestly if you want to splurge or save! 



Street of Hoi An



Temples in Hoi An

When I enter Hoi An through a small alley, I had a bad experience. There was this ticketing counter and that lady was forcing us to buy tickets to visit the temple or else she won’t let us go through but there were people walking past us so I asked her why they do not need to buy the tickets? Then she start catching people but they were Asians. She did not catch the Caucasians. Not even one. She was biased. Seriously, what era are we in now? She should treat everyone equally. I was so mad but at that point, my family and I were clueless so we just bought the tickets. It was to visit the temples which was nothing much to see. It was such a scam as it was about 8-9 SGD dollars per adult which I felt not worth the money. Nevertheless, it was a great experience! Hoi An is a food paradise. I am just eating away in restaurant as the restaurant food are worth the money and much cheaper than Singapore. Street Food are mainly their fried dough. You can see a wider variety of street food in the late afternoon as more people are coming out selling their food!


An Artist

I don’t know which word is a right definition of this man’s job but he is one meticulous painter. He was painting this big wall which was craved and polished smoothly in a temple. He took his time and paint a man’s face; adjusting the color tone to give a realistic effect. All these small little details of how the tone of the different facial areas is one tough job. Kudos to him. A man was craving in another wall and he was using all sorts of handy machines for cutting, shaving and sanding. It is fascinating to just watch him do this work. Well, it is better than an office job.

Beautiful Streets of Hoi An


Life in Hoi An 

Vietnamese love to play chess. It is part of their lifestyle. There was a restaurant that was dedicated for chess player; men sitting in low stools and having their tea/coffee and playing chess. Other men will crowd around and look at their game. And it is a common sight seen in Danang. We do see old men in Singapore playing chess but it is a rare sight. While the men play their chess, women were making lanterns. I saw many shops making the lanterns; using thin bamboo streaks to make the skeleton of the lantern before gluing the rice paper on it. If I can speak Vietnamese language, I will definitely ask those ladies how long they spend their time doing. To me, using wire is already tough by making the skeleton of the body but bamboo? It is a skill that takes time to master. A dedicated job!



Small little details

The picture on the right which has many face images and name card was found in a shop. I find it interesting as there was faces from all around the world. It feels like an investigation; thinking who are these people and what do they do. Somehow, I feel like Sherlock Homes; finding the common point among one person to another.


Night Vs Day



Night of Hoi An

The night lights in Hoi An is gorgeous and memorizing. The beautiful lanterns lighted up, hanging from one end to another. It did not feel like Chinatown. It is just a statement of Hoi An. When the night comes, it is becomes a place of relaxation; for tourist to relax, chill and take a break from the buzzing city.



Local Delights ( Spring Roll, White Rose, Wanton )

My family was walking to a small street and we saw this local shop that has a few tourist so we decided to settle our lunch there. The owners were humble and a joy to talk to. Even though we had communication problem, they will try to communicate with us and ask about the meal. After our meal, they gave us banana. I love banana so when they give, I just take and munch it down quickly. I love the white rose but you have to eat it when it is hot as when it turns cold, the rice paper becomes hard to chew down. The wanton was delicious; crispy and tasty!

Comes to the end of Part I. I will upload part II soon & I will try to update more often!
