I've known you for three years and counting... I fell in love with you and your charming smile the first time we met. I kept on falling and falling till I can't get out anymore. It's too late. I think you see me as a little sister, but every night,I pray you wouldn't. Every night, I dream of being in your arms, my feelings finally at rest and at peace so that I don't have to continue this anymore. Sometimes I get the feeling you love me too, but soemtiems you are so distant I don't know anymore. I love you and will see you for 3 more years. Maybe by then, we can talk properly. Maybe by then, we can joke and laugh and play idiotic games just so that we want to, not to break the awkward silence. Best of luck this year, I know you'll need it. You always stumble and fall in whatever you do, yet you manage to laugh it off. That's one of the main reasons I love you so much. You have no idea. You will never ever see this, but I just wanted to get it off my chest. It's been pondering my heart for ages, and now here it is. MDK I love you.

Dude this is amazing. I agree with Daul... Brits are making a killing out of this. Koreans should bring it backkk!

I mean, the Croc--it looks like a plastic hoof. How can you take that seriously? I know it's comfortable; I understand that. But if you want to dress to feel as though you never got out of bed, don't get out of bed.
-Tim Gunn's thoughts on the worst fashion trends, in Time Magazine.

Copied from Fashionista- absolutely TRUE!

Naomi Campbell- diva legend

In this article, Naomi Campbell says how much she hates the lack of racial diversity in the catwalks. However, if I were to chose between her and Coco Rocha, it would definately be Coco Rocha.

Hopefully the reason is painfully obvious (hint: I could give a shit if Coco was white).

But there is so much publicity for black models. At least they have some shining hope to having more black models in the catwalks. But how about Asian? Middle Eastern? Hopefully, with more black models there would also be more racial diversity as whole.

One of my favorite models is Daul Kim, who's Korean and absolutely stunning. Not only is she beautiful, she seems like a very interesting person- her blog, I Like to Fork Myself, is evident of that. Her, along with several rising stars in the modeling industry, who aren't quite fair skinned, should get a chance too. They are as equally talented, and furthermore, is more than just a "nameless face".

I just wanted to get this out there since every fashion blog has a post like this. Haha, and to get another side to it, such as OTHER RACES. Yup, enough of my babbling. I would be surprised if anyone read this far! Hehe :)


I love Susie's voice! I wish I had a British drawl like hers. Check her little intro vid out- verrrry interesting.

Regular Posting? Is that possible?

Hopefully, I will prove less lazy than I tend to be. I really want to get started with this blogging thing (well at least before school starts) so I will try to regularly post (at least couple times a day). Hopefully I'll end up with a couple of people reading my blog regularly... I am not asking for a cult fanbase that certain blogs have (aka Style Bubble, the Sart, Fashionista) but you know, some readers would be nice. :) So it's my goal to strive to give you the best content possible.

And my goal begins... hopefully accomplished soon enough!

Hitchhiking... on planes...

These people do not refer to themselves as hitchhikers, of course, any more than a gold digger admits to being on the make. The old aphorism that one does not marry for money, but rather mingles with the rich and marries for love has useful applications when it comes to cadging rides on private jets.

Wow, lucky folks. Read the rest of the article here.


Browsing Korean shopping sites have always been one of my guilty pleasures. I just love looking through pleasantly styled clothes, fashioned with a sense of style similar to my own. One of my favorites, Sechuna, has a cute, preppy, girly, whimsical (and a bit lolita) kind of style- just my type. Maybe that's why I enjoy flicking through the items so much. Or maybe because Sechuna ships to US for a flat fee of $60. It may sound pricey, but if you order enough items, it does pay off. Which leads to my temptation... The site is entirely in Korean, which means if you don't speak a word, it is impossible to order. However, I am lucky enough to live under a roof in which lives two lovely parents who are fluent in Korean and therefore can order for me (as my Korean is pitiful, to say the least). I shall give in to my temptations soon enough, as I already compiled a list of items that are on my wishlist. A lot of the items are very cutesy and baby-ish and does not suit to many tastes. Therefore, it is pretty rare I find something of that style here in major chains, such as Forever21 or H&M, where it's all about what's in. Frankly, I could give a shit about what the hell's in. Sure, maybe if I like the trend, I'll buy into it. But my wardrobe isn't revolved around it. I buy what I like. Even if it gets bizarre stares from everyone around me.

Frankly, I like it.


I drank about one spoonful of white wine, and I have the biggest headache right now. I'm not the type of girl, you see, who can hold her drink.

I would like some green tea boba, please.

What Everyone Wore Today

Susie Bubble has done it again. Her post, discussing about blogs that only post about what they wore that day, was so in depth and honest- I really admired her for it. And it got me to think, as a lot of my blogs I daily read is mainly composed of outfits. Is posting of outfits without descriptions fashion narcissism? Possibly. Yeah, obviously if someone says look at me, I'm so fashionable, as Susie put it, it is. But even if it is fashion narcissism, I thoroughly enjoy it, for reasons unkown.

What I see in a lot of people that post outfits is that they have a lack of self esteem in their style, and that they want to be reassured that they are fashionable. If that's the way they want to establish and form and be confident in their style, that is honestly the most foolish thing I have ever heard. What I do admire about posting outfits, however, is that it takes somewhat courage to post them. I mean, it is online- you can get as easily criticized as praised.

However, this is NOT the reason I am not posting outfits. It is because of pure laziness. HAHAHA. And I am not technologically advanced to take photos of myself and too cowardy to ask one of my friends to take a picture of me, fearing I will look like a narcissistic fool.

How ironic.

"She is among those turning their backs on ostentatious styling, and especially on the owlishly super-size frames popularized a few years back by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, in favor of scaled-down rectangles in bi-colored plastic, imitation tortoise shell, wood, titanium or even gold."

Funny... since MK and Ash were one of the few that introduced the popularity of the Ray Bans.

Shame on you NY Times... Really. I thought you knew better.

I was never really into Target's private collections (or whatever it is called) but these bubble shorts are completely NECESSARY for my summer wardrobe.

Target here I come! :)
