Top 5 Fashion Stores I Visit (Regularly)

3.27.2015

where do I shop?

I get this question a lot - "where do you shop?". Being plus size was borderline plus size now after losing so much weight last year, I still frequent the same stores because heck, I love clothes that's comfortable, casual and well big. I don't like wearing tents, but like the Olsen twins, I have a penchant for clothes that's extra large. I call them the anti-fat clothes, it sure slims you down if you know where to shop and what to pair it with. My top favourite would have to be Marks & Spencer because the clothes (there's sizes) gives a slimming effect to us beautiful big ladies. Uniqlo, H&M, Gap and Esprit are casuals for me. I love their fall/winter collection :) never fails to make me feel the holidays. As for Dorothy Perkins, I buy my jeans there in boot cut, denim. It gives the illusion of longer looking legs for me. Other stores I visit - Flow, Ms. Read, Cotton On, Springfield and Lalu (a Singapore brand).


Winter is Coming...

3.26.2015

inspiration board wall for my next wanderlust adventure

Recently inspired by the fall/winter fashion from Japanese magazine, I decided to tape pages from Jasmine magazine on my wall. It's just one of those visuals that inspires me in life. Someday I would like to own all these jackets, cardigans, sweaters in my wardrobe. I love styles that's demure, simple and comfortable. Also I'm saving up to travel to Japan or Europe this year, Japan on top of the list. Europe, I always wonder how it would be like. I know friends says it's depressive but that happens to be my middle name. My relatives Mandy Bond is there (dad's side) and my cousin Danny who became a daddy already. Curious, I should give it a go and explore the world for a change. Somewhere further than Asia perhaps as the only places I've ever been to is Thailand, Indonesia (Bali), Singapore and Australia. Somewhere cold, because I love the chilly air blowing in my face.

Meet Gudetama My iPhone Buddy

 look what I have from Japan!!!

Ever since I saw Tenshi shared on Facebook about Gudetama, a weird looking egg on rice creature iPhone 6 casing, I went "OMG I WANT THAT". A friend happened to be in Japan at that time so I texted him to see if he could help me get it. It's only sold in Japan, and they have a line of accessories made under Gudetama's character. Knowing men, they probably wouldn't care what us girls tell them but this friend of mine actually went to look for it, came back and texted me to meet up saying he has a souvenir for me. I was like... meh the usual chocolates or key chain from Japan (which I have enough off, I don't eat chocolates or collect keychains). The only thing I collect is Coca Cola cans from all over the country. My friends would bring a can back from their travels.

The New BOSS BOTTLED by Hugo Boss

BOSS BOTTLED The Collection

Is anyone on Tinder or any of those dating apps that's hitting the scene these days? I was introduced to an app where answering questions matches you based on compatibility rating. The questions are pretty entertaining at times, but there's a few questions I remembered that would make or break a potential match. Behold question "Is smelling good important to you?" of course I answered yes! I love a man who smells good. One that smells like a boss is even better. A man of today, a contemporary man full of charm, chivalry, courage and appreciation towards life - the modern masculinity they call it.

Based on a survey conducted by Taiwan Tourism in 2012, the top attractions for inbound tourists are sights and sceneries, food and shopping. As such, the Taiwan Travel Fair will also highlight three major experiences under the theme of “Time to Enjoy Life”:

Time to Eat


When it comes to food, Taiwan has it all. Dine like royalty without paying a king’s ransom for it. From juicy seasonal fruits, sumptuous traditional Chinese dishes, healthy vegetarian dishes, icy desserts to creative tea drinks, Taiwanese cuisine makes full use of local ingredients and age-old techniques to surprise and satisfy your palate. Don’t forget the world-famous night markets, filled with the enticing aromas of delicious street food and snacks!


Time to Shop


Taiwan is a shopaholic’s dream come true, with many large shopping centres and chain department stores in all four corners of the island. Shop for anything you want, from high-quality made-in-Taiwan 3C products, to famous highland tea and handmade weavings. For the fashion lover, all kinds of affordable clothing, leather goods and branded products are at your fingertips. In Taiwan, you are sure to find just about everything you want.


Time to go on Two Wheels


These days, the LOHAS (Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability) trend is gaining popularity as people begin to be more health and eco-conscious. Taiwan is well-known for its LOHAS practices, and there is no better way to experience it than to travel along the breath-taking coastal highways by bicycle! Immerse yourself in the beauty of nature and appreciate the simple yet wonderful things in life with your loved ones.

Caffe Crema Plaza Mont Kiara

 a lazy Sunday in Mont Kiara

a cup of cappuccino to keep me awake

feeling black & white

Sometimes, when I feel overwhelm with the world, I go into silent mode and would be wandering around, spending time unwinding with my thoughts. Last Sunday, I took Uber to Plaza Mont Kiara, checked myself into Caffe Crema and ordered a cappuccino. I sat outside, peering into the sky. It was going to rain. I took out my phone and snap a couple of pictures, edited it on my instagram and share it on Facebook.
