On My iPod

All Or Nothing by O-Town

Cause I want it all
Or nothing at all
There's nowhere left to fall
When you reach the bottom it's now or never
Is it all?
Or are we just friends
Is this how it ends
With a simple telephone call?
You leave me here with nothing

Cause you and I
Could lose it all if you've got no more room
Nowhere inside for me in your life

I remember being obsessed with this song back in highschool.....yes...that was long long ago. Today the song came up on my iPod from random play.....Westlife's version....It reminded me of how much i love the song.....Sometimes simple lyric gets right to the point!

RM by Roland Mouret

All of the above from Net-A-Porter

Ohhhhh someone should stop me from goin on Net-A-Porter. I think it's unhealthy to obessess over fashion when i can't afford them..... The top three items....sigh...just looking at them makes me feel feminine.....Although i m usually too lazy to dress up, there are the odd days when i want to dress like the above. As for the bottom two... my favorite thing about winter is the snow...and knitwear... esp cable-knit sweaters.... They are sooooo timeless. Too bad there's only a week at most in Hong Kong that i can wear winter clothes.

Accessorize your accessory!

Camera Case by Henry Lau for Canon

Camera Strap by Lu Lu Cheung for Canon

Both items from Canon Vogue 4 Sight Collection

I have been noticing more and more people are carrying around DSLR cameras lately.....seems to be the trend! A friend of mine started addressing DSLRs as accessories for the trendy groups. Me too, have been contemplating purchasing one and have been eyeing the Canon EOS 500D. However, i have given on the idea because i don't see myself lugging it around on a daily basis and especially not when i want to travel light (both occasions being the reason behind me wanting a better camera). So i have settle with my idiot proof point and shoot digital camera. I have also learned how to edit my photos via Picnik, a very handy online app for photo editing (thanks to another fd, Mr.Chow). Anyways............. the point of this post being..... haahah..... that there's a collaboration between Canon and 4 local designers for the trendy people to accessorize their accessories. Although i don't have a Canon 500D, i wouldn't mind having the above if i did have a DSLR.

He's Just Not That Into You

It was a movie marathon for me last weekend.....and i have finally gotten around to watching "He's Just Not That Into You". It was way better than i thought it would be....and hahah as cheesy as it was quite inspirational.....I think this is one of the few chick flicks that guys can sit through as well!

On My iPod

我不會愛 by 蕭敬騰

就算像一片海 重的我放不開
親愛的 我真的不會愛

Although i love his could be overwhelming sometimes........why can't ppl write happier songs?

Into the woods

Stella McCartney FW09 Ad Image from WWD

How cute is this....Stella McCartney's FW09 ad campaign brings models into the woods and meet up with fluffy Disney characters. I guess it suites Stella McCartney's image since her designs are always so girly and dreamy.

On My iPod

卸下美麗的外殼 透明的我們還剩下什麼
愛情就像水晶球 堅固而脆弱

一個人也許自由 兩個人的感動大過天空
喜怒哀樂 共同擁有 不讓遺憾留

I have almost forgotten about this song.....i luv gary chaw's singing.... isn't this wut love songs are all about? Making you feel goosebumps and chills?

我可以無所謂 寂寞卻一直掉眼淚
人類除了擅長頹廢 做什麼都不對 Oh…I’m Not Okay

我假裝無所謂 才看不到心被擰碎
人在愛情裹越殘廢 就會越多安慰 無論有多虛偽

Coming soon

Bunny fashion

Peter Jensen Resort 2010 Collection via

The bunny sunglassese first caught my attention of this collection from Peter Jensen. As I look more into it, the more i like, especially the illustration on the background by Charlotte Mann. This collection combines fun and elegant design with the crepe dresses and cardigans.

This would be what i expect Arcadia / 世外桃源 to look like......The combination of a park filled with modern arts and luxurious accommodation by Relais & Châteaux. Located in Guilin (桂林), China, this is definitely a Paradise. Although i m far from being an artist, i can still appreciate the design of this paradise. The design of the rooms are simple yet stylist, perfect example of Modern Art's clean cuts. But the most intriguing element to me is the dining area, one of which is located in a cave as seen above.

Guess who this is.....

It's Dakota Fanning....the little girl from I Am Sam, Uptown Girl etc. She is all grown up now... I can't find the resemblance between the two it just me? She has grown out of her baby face and doesn't look so creepy anymore... She looks all grown-up at only 15. Looking forward to seeing her in Twilight. BTW...she is making aother movie with Kristen Stewart about a 70s band called The Runaways...rumor has it that there's gonna be some girl-on-girl action between the two....hahah i sound like a teenage boy now.....

Featured below...another famous child star....who didn't turn out as fine as Dakota Fanning....

All Images from Celebuzz

It's Haley Joel Osment from Sixth sense....what happened here?!?!!?

Growing old...

When i was 13....i dressed like a tomboy and never worn a dress/skirt unless it was for a wedding. When i was 16...i dressed like 25, trying to impress everyone with my grown-up clothes. I never dressed my age and i was never girly. I was also afraid of the trend and was never experimental. It was only up til these 2 years that i finally have the nerve to wear clothes that I would usually run away from....i.e. shorts, skirts, leggings etc. I even started experimenting with colourful nails and by far i m quite proud of myself. Lately, my fetish is brights. Seen here is my new shocking pink polish. Three years ago i would have never thought of it, i might even think of it as absurd. I think it has to do with growing old and it has finally hit me that soon i will be 30 and it would be too old to be bold.

Anywayz....enuff blabbing....point of this post is the fridge haahha I love retro fridges....they are so groovy hahhah. Also the procelaine cup/tumbler from Revol. It looks like a cumpled dixie cup. Both of these items are from a bistro/cafe in Taipei called VVG Bistro. It's a perfect little cafe tucked inside a little alley. More images can been seen from this blog. My dream is to open up a cafe like this serving homemade comfort foods...and i would leave a little corner selling local designer shenanigans (my meaning being misc items). Only in my dream........

Romantic Grunge...??!!??

Never a big fan of Roberto Cavalli because he uses too much animal prints....But I couldn't take my eyes off these two runway looks.... although they are from old shows. I call this 'Romantic Grunge' hahahha if there's such a style. The bodice (is this even the right term?) and ruffles on the gowns look stunning....Though what really striked me is how well the smokey eyes blended with the look. Again...i wish i can pull off smokey eyes look.....

Adding fun to boring things

Floral Moneybox

All of the above from Vitamin

I think design is all about adding fun bits to ordinary items. "A little less ordinary".....perfect motto for a design company. The IV Plate Pot is my favorite of all!
