Marshmallow

I thought I’d wear a cheerful outfit for a day of fun and shopping around Hong Kong. I don’t know why but it somehow reminds me of marshmallows. I can’t quite pinpoint if it’s because of the white polka dots, or the overall cuteness of this outfit. It’s even fluffy and soft like a pillow! (See, I sound […]

Travel Diary: Berlin Wall and East Side Gallery

It’s hard not to get interested in politics and history when you’re in Berlin, especially with a history as recent as theirs.

Welcome To The Dark Side

I’ve officially embraced the dark side—of my hair, I mean. I’ve been trying so hard to darken my then blonde hair that in a span of a month, I dyed it thrice! I’m sure you didn’t notice the change because my hair is just so stubborn. For some weird reason, light colors stick so well on […]

Skinnovation

It’s so hard being a girl. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy being one but it can get pretty tiring. Just our personal care and grooming alone take FOREVER. How can they not? We need to wash this, apply that, comb this, wax that and so on and so forth. For a busy girl like me, it’s impossible not […]
