Disconnect: All About Love (The 10 Best Rom-Coms)


About a year ago, I started drafting this post of my favorite romantic comedies but I never got to finish. Luckily, I was going through all my drafts and found this. I intended to post this on Valentines day but I went out with my friends... But it's the Valentines day weekend, which means it's totally perfect for a good movie marathon and/or a slumber party...

I am a huge movie buff and rom-coms are generally a favorite in the film genres. I love the fact that rom-coms are no-brainer, no fuss, light-hearted and funny. I love watching it over and over and over again and even if I've seen it a hundred times, it doesn't really get old.

Okay, before we start, don't be fooled. None of what's on the collage made it to my list. Sure, they're great but I need more from my rom-com than just a good love story. I need me some funny!

Happiness: Recovery


I must admit--I am a very intense person. I have been called a conundrum; and to some extent, I am confusing, riddled and more often than not, a difficult problem. I am a Virgo and a Rabbit after all--if that gives any indication of who I am as a person. I get anxious easily. I feel a lot of things and see a lot of things. I thrive in my own version of chaos and order.

That said, I try my best to unwind or be less neurotic--if that is even possible. Here are some of the products I use to help me relax.

Happiness: 2014 Favorites (Pop Culture)

pop culture 2014


We have come to the final stretch of my Best of 2014, a favorites trilogy if you will. I can't believe 2014 is over. It has been a year of tremendous up and down and I'm positively excited to begin 2015.

Happiness: 2014 Favorites (Beauty)

Beauty Essentials 2014


Now for the beauty bits. Not much of my makeup routine has changed because I don't really know how to put makeup on. I pretend and that's about it. I did buy myself a couple more Real Techniques brushes hoping that it will help me get on with it. As usual, skincare has been more of my priority. Unfortunately, my skin has not been responding well to the products I have been using. Either my skin has gotten used to the products I've been using or I'm doing something wrong. Not even my favorite jar of Creme De La Mer soft cream can help me.

Happiness: 2014 Favorites (Style)

Style Essentials2014


Last year, I rounded up all my favorites in a post. As usual, it took me a while to curate everything that I really enjoyed using the whole year round. I decided to work on this by dividing my posts, so it doesn't take forever for me to post. I am sort of assuming this series will be a trilogy of sorts... unless it happens otherwise.

Happiness: Shrimp + Avocado Garlic Wrap


A couple of weeks ago, I stayed over a friend's house for the night after we had a little too much to celebrate before the holidays. We never really had a proper dinner so she made me a Bolognese wrap. It was very simple and super easy. It made me want to buy a sandwich maker.

Happiness: Los Primos


Better late than never. Almost forgot to share these photos. I changed my phone so I completely forgot that I had a lot of photos to sort through the old phone. Lyn and I had dinner at Los Primos last November 1... practically a month ago.

Disconnect: Solange Knowles + Alan Ferguson


The very first thing I did when I saw Solange Knowles' wedding photos was to text my brother Charles:
"When I get married, I want to be as bad-ass as Solange."
Bad-ass is definitely an understatement.

Happiness: Ran Hwang's Becoming Again


Concluding this year's theme of "Transition", I had the pleasure of attending the launch of Becoming Again last November 6 at Third Floor Hermès.

The most beautiful oftentimes come from the simplest and most basic of things--take for example random and mundane knick knacks such as buttons and pins. That is exactly what Korean artist Ran Hwang created in the art space Third Floor Hermès. Add in colossal curved Plexiglas panels and technicolor lights, you have a mirage of extraordinary landscapes, scenic nature, and flying Phoenix bird. 

This is my favorite art installation by far. The attention to detail and the intricacies of design are breathtaking, obsessive and beyond incredible. You get drawn in, just marvelling at the visuals transition to various episodes from a Phoenix, to blossoming peonies. I made a short video of Becoming Again and check out the rest of the post after the jump.
