my mind is fuzzy

Wow. It's 2010.



(I left my babies behind in HK!! :((( Hehehe my favorite's Ernie but it seems no one in HK likes Ernie because they never produce Ernie plush toys?!! It was always these 4. WHYY??!)

Sorry about the prolonged absence but it's been an incredible blur over the past 2 and a half weeks it's really starting to tired me out. Then again, most of the time when I find myself ready to keel over and conk out in lectures in school, I really only have myself to blame. Yesterday I spent the entire afternoon walking round Orchard Road, visiting some of my favorite stores with the boy because we (or I) just had this URGGEEE to check out all the stores (the sales!!) (that sadly appeared to have ended the day before on Sunday -___-) before it was too late...I'm really glad I managed to walk through most of the stores because then at least I won't be distracted this week by the thought of possible awesome items on sales racks disappearing under the hands of ladies with more time than I do...

So basically I was so tired I really wanted to dig a hole for myself and fall asleep in the lecture theatre.

I haven't had the chance to go through a lot of my holiday photos (Korea was SOOOOO COLD. Really. Pain-in-my-fingers-and-toes type of cold. O_O I'd never felt so cold anywhere else in my entire life!!) because the day after I came back I had to go back to school and I've been trying to catch up with work and other activities since then. A few words though --> KIMCHI. The Face Shop. SNOW SNOW SNOW. And naked body scrub. ;) Yesss, pictures will follow soon!!

Ok here's a sneak preview:


(korean dish BIBIMBAP)
(before it was covered in some special chilli sauce)


(MMMMMMMMM.... He probably has the best abs ever. If you haven't already heard of him, google Rain)


(there were such beautiful sunsets :))


(Nami Island, Korea, Dec 2009)
(the frickinnnnn coldest place on EARTH)

I feel like I'm ready to move to a new phase in terms of my dressing. I'm starting to gravitate towards the loose shirt + trousers look (ala MKA) but pretty trousers are sooo expensive. At least the ones in Zara are. Big question to anyone who can help: How does one with broad shoulders and no hips dress? I've been working on this problem for the past 1.5 years and I still have lots of trouble.


(Makes me wanna wear all black and put on a shade scarlet red lipstick.)



(Sigh. Makes me feel like dressing up and going out.)


So far I've come up with a couple of New Year Resolutions:

1. Take care of my body. Exercise more, eat healthily, rest more.

2. Spend more wisely. Quality not quantity.

3. Be PUNCTUAL (this has been a real failure so far ;p)

4. Love more.

Ok brain's fuzzy now. Sleep beckons.


  1. Happy New Year to you! Glad to see you are back!

  2. welcome baccckkkk :D I love love korean food sooo much. i often order in korean when i feel sad/upset/happy lol. better get some sleep yeah don't overwork yourself

    also, i have one solution: DONT WEAR TROUSERS HAHAH

    btw i switched to wordpress -->

  3. Welcome back! Happy new year! :D your photos are lovely! Ahh the sesame guys are omggg adorable haha. I want to visit Korea soo bad! Did you join a tour or just go on your own? I'm afraid to go on my own because I don't speak Korean, and tours are sometimes boring.

    Good luck on your resolutions!

  4. i love mka because they're so tiny. same for rachel bilson!

    one of my friends is living in korea right now. she said it's almost unbearably cold and that's coming from someone who grew up in freakin' canada! maybe that's why they have such awesome cold-weather food (mmmm soondubu)


    I just noticed your mini-profile bio thing and saw that you love blueberry morning cereal. SO DO I. AND I CAN'T FIND IT HERE ANYMORE. freaking a. maybe it's just the grocery store i go to ;P

  6. welcome back! happy new year!

    omg, those sesame street dolls are so adorable. I want them! haha I have a cookie monster doll...

    and omg, bibimbap.. I LOVE gochujang, the spicy sauce.. and I love bibimbap, it's oftentimes the food I photograph the most since I eat it most often.

    and good resolutions! love more and take care of my body are a couple of my resolutions too! and I should try to be more punctual as well.

    looove your blog :) would you like to link exchange?

  7. Happy New Year, Lynnette! Glad to see you are back. Ooh, preview pictures from Korea! :)

  8. happy belated new year! and glad to see you back of course, that reminds me i have to change ur link to this one! oh and omg have i been missing out? you've been to korea? that's so cool! i really want to go there too, but if im going i will pick a month when it's not so cold haha. the bibimbap looks delicious! i made it myself once, and its pretty easy to prepare =D can't wait to see upcoming korea photos! xoxo phuong

  9. I've missed you!

    I love Bibimbap!!!

    About the MKA thing, I've been thinking of doing the same thing since I kinda got fat in the tummy area. I think the MLA look would definitely hide my fatness. Haha.


  10. what do i wear? i'm in either leggings or black Tsubis everyday. haha. except when it's warm then i become the very typical south east asian/californian type dresser and i wear very short shorts and flip flops. but now that you mention trousers i actually did start looking out for them. well when i start work i'll have an excuse to buy like every type of trouser in every colour :D i reckon we should enjoy our skinny jean wearing days while it lasts, lol.

  11. I'm from shanghai/san francisco but right now I'm in southern california :)

    and yup all the photos on my site are taken by me ^^;; awww thanks! <3 I've found it's better to desaturate after you've already taken it, so you can decide whether it looks better in b&w or not, but personally I love b&w.. I think taking it in b&w is good if you're doing it with b&w film though :)

    yayy! added you back. woo-hoo!

  12. BIMBIMBAPP :) yumyum
    i miss korea so much...i really want to go again this summer but idk i have so much stuff to do haha
    and sorry i haven't checked my gmail in foreeevverrr. i just finished all my serious horrible school stuff just yesterday

    happy new year!
