Feeling the Blues

Photo by John

So i went onto John's tumblr and recognized this outfit that i put together last year. It's quite funny hearing people telling me that the outfit was well put together because the thing about this outfit that was screaming were the rain boots. Can you continue to draw an imaginary lower body with a pair of floral rain boots matched with all the blues? I looked at myself through the bus doors and i giggled at my own reflection. O well, the weather was nasty and i just couldn't think of getting out of the house in anything else but the rain boots.

You would probably know how comfortable i was feeling that day, looking at all the blues i've layered myself under. Again, i just can't tell you how blue helps me to chill bananas. I mean, blue is the colour that i've been drawn to ever since i was a child and after changing my favorite colors for a few times, i'm back to the blue square.

Anyway, the pleated shirt is from American Eagle and i've been wearing it even before i found myself in love with clothing. I know the knitted cardigan is slightly too short for my arms and a bit too tight to button up with layers below, which probably explains the expanded button holes, but c'mon it was from kids section in H&M. It looks just fine with less layers.

Now, the dotty tie... was supposedly for a friend but he soon disappeared from my life so it's mine now. I realized that i've the tendency to get people things and keeping them in the house due to forgetfulness and some other lame reasons. Until i realize that those gifts were still not given out, some of them were already out. I guess it's not too bad a thing afterall, the gifts will still be given to those who never walk away.

Enough about everything related to blue for the night… TGIF! Have a good weekend while i hide under my smelly blanky during this rainy season in the supposedly sunny island.

Back from the Mess.

Hola, my friends! 

Last few weeks has been insanely busy for me and i apologize for me absence on this space.
Here i am, with some free time, all thanks to the Chinese New Year public holiday next week. It's finally time for some rest before i watch the next few months fly pass, when i get back to school on wednesday again.

Let's begin with the move to the new place. This is the fifth time i'm moving since the day of my birth but the last four times have been in the same district-South. This time round, my family have decided to be adventurous and we're all the way to the North West of Singapore. It is a pretty lovely place because  of the obscurity but one thing that's really strange is that the house gets extremely dark by 5pm. It's quite funny that the sunny island isn't that sunny in some areas. O well, as long as it's still windy, we're all good.

 Next, the end of all the workshops that are compulsory for me to take in school. Google Sketch Up, Photography, Photoshop, Illustrator and Clay Modeling. We were given 5 weeks to learn each programs and present our final project on the fifth week. Honestly, they weren't too bad after looking back at the progress i have made but the process during the five weeks weren't that fun too. To know when is your deadline before getting to know anything but the name of the software doesn't make learning that enjoyable.

This week, i had two submissions on consecutive days and before each submissions i don't normally get any sleep. By the end of the third day of the week, i was almost a zombie already. Below is what i did for illustrator after five weeks. With zero knowledge and understanding of the program and for being a complete loser with softwares, may i present to you a portrait of myself(or at least the mole above my lips if you violently disagree that it's a portrait of myself) in a vintage poster.

Lastly, it's the outfit to represent the end of a stressful week in school! The favourite hand woven silk scarf from India, blue stripes dress from Malaysia and the velvet red flats from Charlotte Russe. An interesting fact about these three is that they for kept warm in the wardrobe for about half a year before i wore them out yesterday. I wonder what took me such a long time before taking them out to the streets…

Ah, this a vintage bracelet that i brought back from new jersey. It has the name of the aunty that loved me best between my sisters, she says that's because i was the first to be given birth to and so i'm her favorite. Neither of my sisters understood that but they just lived with the fact that i was favored by her, while i enjoy being pampered. The last time we met was 4 years back or so, i missed her but i would not call her. I can't wait for house warming, maybe she would come.
I hope this long post made it up for the weeks i disappeared from this space.
Have a good weekend ahead and happy Chinese New Year to fellow chinese people!
