Disconnect: Lottie Moss For Calvin Klein


Calvin Klein reissues some of their iconic pieces from the 90's. Oh you know, that incredibly epic black and white ad campaign with a young and waif Kate Moss and a super buff Mark Wahlberg then known as Marky Mark.

Happiness: 2AM


As a preschool teacher, I never really gave a damn about what I ought to wear at work. I have always prioritized comfort above style and whatnot. My work uniform consisted of classic pair of jeans, joggers and t-shirts--stuff I can roll in and out of bed. Though my last workplace sort of had a dress code, I never really bothered to follow any of them. I figure, the people who made the rules never taught a class of 3 year olds. How can you expect teachers to wear black slacks and sit down or run with the kids?

Happiness: 5 Closet Essentials - Tops

5 Closet Essentials: Tops


Not everybody wants to wear a crop top or be part of a fast-fading trend--I sure don't. I like classic pieces and I tend to lean more into closet staples. If you're more like me, and you want to build up the perfect wardrobe, check out this new series of post I've come up with called the 5 Closet Essentials. It's practically a short list of wardrobe staples that will never go out of style.

Happiness: To Endings And New Beginnings


I have been reading a new book lately called The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider. On the very first paragraph on the very first chapter, the narrator dictates that "everyone has a tragedy waiting for them to happen".

My tragedy is my life. It seems as if I've been going through rough patches one after another and it sucks. It really sucks. At one point, I thought I might have given up.

You know that feeling when you have been wanting something for so long but it doesn't just work out. And everything seems to go from bad to worse? I felt that way for so long, I no longer remember what it was like to be happy.

I don't mean to be cynical but I'm just being realistic.

I tell myself that it's okay. Or that it'll be okay. But it just doesn't happen. Instead, things got from good to okay to bad to worse. I am so jaded and tired. I have given up. I have lost faith.

But then, something happens and turns your life around. You get another chance to move on and it suddenly feels like the best feeling ever. I sort of felt that last year but then the feeling, obviously, didn't last very long. So I am a bit scared right now, but excited, because this has been my dream for 4 long years. Then I tell myself, nothing could be worse than what I had to go through and I'm glad that period of my life is over.

Tomorrow onwards, I begin a new life. 

Let's do this.

Happiness: Water Infusion


I started infusing fruits into my water about two months ago. Water infusion, as it is called, seemed like a really stupid idea to me at the beginning. I thought that I should just eat the fruit rather than put it in my water. But one day, I realized I had a surplus of fruits and didn't want to waste any. So, I placed them in my brand new 1L Nalgene water bottle, added water and waited overnight.

And the rest is, as people like to call it, history...

Happiness: Paris Baguette Cafe


Lyn and I had an impromptu Sunday dinner at Paris Baguette. I have never really sat down to eat at Paris Baguette. I always considered it as an over the top cafe fancied with a Parisienne theme to compensate for it's high price. But Lyn insists it was her favorite place and that it's the one place that she has no regrets coming over and over and over again.

The reason for our meet up was that I have a package from Manila. I had my friend, Jaq, buy me a couple of new lipsticks from her trip to the States. My mom picked it up and delivered it to Lyn and Lyn who had a holiday, brought it to me. So, I was quite eager to get my package.

Happiness: 3-Country Skincare Haul


With the intense amount of stress I have to deal with at work, I cannot help but stress out about how my skin is reacting to all of it. I have been obsessing about skincare products maybe way too much but I know that it'll all be worth it in the next few years.

That said, I ought to share with you the sudden influx of skincare haul I got. Getting so much products all at the same time is purely coincidental. I don't really like buying a lot at the same time but some items I had other people buy because they were only available from where they were coming from... My parents visited from the Philippines while my brother went to Australia for a brief holiday. Note that all items (except for two, the Kiehl's products, which were donated to me by my sister in law) were bought with my own money and even stuff I had my own family buy, I had to pay them for it.

Happiness: Walking Downtown


*This is part two of my adventure last May 24. For part one, check out my post on Symmetry!

And I am back at Haji Lane!

Lyn has been in Singapore for around a year now and she's never been beyond the confines of her condo, her work and Orchard Road. It was my mission to at least bring her to some of the spots I frequently bring visitors to.
