Burberry SS18 Styling Preview.

Thursday, February 8, 2018

Last week I had an opportunity to organize a private styling session with Burberry at their store in Pavilion. I’ve talked about 2018 trends and how I convey these trends into my instagram..

My personal style evolves every year, but I would say I am more towards the casual chic style. I love wearing tee shirts a lot, and love pairing them with different items to create different looks. This year, I will be exploring a lot with prints and colors, which is also why I think Burberry going is one of the key brands of 2018.

I am looking at Burberry’s classic print comeback on their current and upcoming collections. Focusing on prints on prints, colors on prints. Hence, my bag selection will be more simple and subtle, like the Square Satchel that I’ve been carrying around. Brought it to Spain, trust me, it goes well with all kinds of style. Also, good enough to fit all the junks that I bring while traveling. Personally love the mini satchels they have too

 I’ve also teamed up Mandy Gioh street shoot featuring my selected styles from Burberry SS18 collection for the styling session.



Also, some films taken during the styling session.



I am obsessed with Burberry.
What about you?

Dubai must do list.

Sunday, January 14, 2018

My boyfriend and I had a layover in Dubai for 5 days before our trip to Europe, and it was the best decision we ever made! ( Courtesy to team Ykone & Dubai tourism for making our Dubai happen. )
 So what are the must-dos in Dubai? Here’s my top five must-dos list.

Hop on a Seaplane.

One of the best seaplane experience I ever had. A 45 minutes ride above Dubai’s sky, we get to see all Dubai landmarks, including Dubai’s old town, Burj Khalifa, Palm Jumeriah Burj Al Arab. If you have never taken a seaplane before, it’s nothing scary or dangerous, suitable for all age including infants. Me and my boyfriend voted this experience the best way to see the whole Dubai. Unless you wanted to do sky diving, I wanted to but he is afraid of heights, so this is good enough to fulfil our Dubai skyline dreams. Anyway, The Seawings Seaplane has a few options for seaplane tours and flight times are pretty flexible, but do book them earlier because the seats are hot!

Not your typical desert safari tour.
We went to two different desert safari experiences with Platinum Heritage.

Platinum Collection - Conservation Drive.

A more private and luxurious way to discover the desert safari. We cruised in a Range Rover and had our breakfast at Al Mahal Desert Resort. I personally advice to pick the earliest time to depart so you get the best sunlight for photos. We departed at 7am and it's good enough. Also if you’re looking for a private and flexible desert safari tour, where you get to ask your tour guide to stop anywhere any moment, this is it.


Herritage Collection - Herritage Desert Safari Dubai.
One of the coolest way to visit the desert safari. Imagine cruising in a vintage 1950’s Land Rover, watching the sunset middle of the desert, and having Emirati dinner under the stars at a private Royal desert retreat. We had so much fun and we both agreed that this is the must go desert safari tour. Fyi, this desert safari tour is ranked top1 in TripAdvisor. The only advice I will have for this tour is to bring a jacket at night because the temperature drops really fast after the sunsets.

Dine with a view.
There’s two fine restaurants that we went around Dubai’s financial district (DIFC).

Mint Leaf of London - 
An Indian fine cuisine with a view overlooking the Burj Khalifa. We both are huge fan of Indian food, we didn’t expect this had become one of the best Indian food experience.

Zuma -
We asked our uber driver to recommend us something and he brought us to Zuma, a Japanese fusion restaurant. Imagine sex and the city vibes, Zuma is very similar to NOBU. Food was really good, but I personally think the chef tasting menu that we ordered was a little too much, a la carte to share will be great enough. We made our bookings quite last minute, glad that they got us a table at the lounge area.



Chill on a hipster beach.
La Mer is Dubai’s newest beachfront district that just opened in November. I was pretty impressed with the hipster vibes going on with the strands of shops and cafes, filled with street arts and art pieces. Han Pin did his research on SALT, which happen to be one of the most famous soft serve & burger place in Dubai that started off from a caravan. Now they have an actual cafe in La Mer and trust me, their stuff are really yummy. La Mer is a huge project, heard that there will be more stuff coming in line.

Jet-ski Tour .
Didn’t expect to have my first jet ski experience in Dubai. We cruised from the marina towards the best view of Burj Al Arab. It was quite a thrill but I wish I get to do it again by myself the next time. Our instructor was really patient and nice, also good in taking pictures too

A Paris Story with Omega.

Wednesday, November 22, 2017

I'm so happy that I make it to Paris this year, this time round with OMEGA to celebrate the launch of OMEGA "Her Time" Exhibition. Lucky me. I was so so so happy and excited because it was PFW and literally all my fav instagrammers/bloggers around the world were in Paris. 

It was a totally different experience to travel to Paris during fashion week. It's very interesting to actually see how people dress up for fashion week, some were really good, and some were just extra lol. Rue Saint-HonorĂ© stretch were filled with fashionable people all over the world. Colette was like the pit stop. Everyone was like "got to make the last visit before it shuts down in dec."

I am very grateful to have OMEGA to host my very first PFW experience. I got to stay at one of the best hotels, Mandarin Oriental ( located right inside Rue Saint-HonorĂ©, where all the shopping is. ), had dinner on a yacht for welcome dinner that went around Paris, walked on a mini red carpet, got 84990102 photographs taking pictures of me on the photowall ( big thank you to Louis Vuitton for dressing me top to toe ). Thinking about it makes me feel like it was a dream. 



Here's a few fun facts about OMEGA Women and Timepieces :
1. In early days, OMEGA produces "secret jewerly watches" where they make timepieces looked like jewerly with hidden watch, to accommodate some circle who considers woman rude to look at her wrist watch ( they think it's a sign of boredom. )

2. Cindy Crawford is the first OMEGA women ambassador and she is still since 1995. 22 Years!

3. Cindy's son & daughter, Kaia Gerber & Presley Gerber are officially the newest ambassadors for OMEGA.  

#familygoals much.

Thank you, OMEGA.

My Surgery Story.

Wednesday, October 25, 2017

Surpriseeeeeeee! I saved this story for my blog on purpose so it's easier for everyone.

Before I start talking about my surgery, some of you might not know what's an accessory axillary breast. It's basically an extra tissue that grows around the armpit area, too me, it's more like a side boob. I had this problem since young, most likely cause of me not wearing the right bra when I was going through puberty, else I might have bigger boobs today. Sads. 


These two bulges on both side of my armpits ( left side's bigger ) were the reason why I rarely wear tube tops or sleeveless clothes. I've tried many ways, wearing the right bra, doing push ups, using tape to tape them in. It doesn't really work for me, the only temporary way to cheat my own feelings was to use photoshop to make them look okay in pictures. 

I did a lot of research on reducing axillary breasts, and the most effective way was removing it surgically. Yep. I did mention on my ig stories when someone asked me what is my biggest flaw / insecurities. 

So how it happened. Last month, my boyf decided to go Seoul to get his tattoo done by @Oozy_tattoo , we were suppose to go join Ashley & Blink for his gig at a music fest, but I ended up getting my axillary breast removed!!!! It wasn't really a last minute plan, I asked for recommendation through my korean friend Heena weeks before and she introduced me to HERSHE Plastic Surgery & Dermatology. I felt safer when it comes to her recommendation, well at least I know I wouldn't end up getting conned by the internet or what so. Apparently this place is pretty famous, heard that many celebrities got their job done here too lol. They have consultant who speaks perfect english and chinese.

Basically I had to remove them surgically by opening a 3+ cm incision on both sides. Doctor will then take off the tissues and it will take about an hour time. I did my surgery the next day after my consultation. I had also made a request to do inner stitching on my incisions so I don't need to remove the stitches after a week.

About my surgery..

I was told not to eat or drink the night before, for anesthesia purposes. That way pretty okay, pretty chill until I realised it's surgery day. Boyf accompanied me to the place and trust me, I WAS F*CKING TERRIFIED when they told him to go walk around and come back later. Doctor did some drawings on the areas that should be removed and then it's time to walk into the surgery room. I was topless lying on the surgery bed. The nurses cleaned the areas and also got my blood test for allergy purposes. Then, they poked the needle into my vein where they will start injecting the local anesthesia after doctor comes it....

Next thing I know, my surgery was done. 

LOL.

It was so casual, the whole surgery took less than an hour? I was told to bed rest for another hour, pick up some medicines and off, I'm free to go. Boyf came to pick me up and the next thing we were having lunch at School Food and went shopping around Garosul-gil. My armpits were wrapped in bandages that can only be taken off the next day. I was told not to lift heavy or sweat/sauna/swim the following month, so work out for me :/


It's the best decision I had ever made. 

This is me, about a month after my surgery at Adidas fitcation lol. 
Can't really tell where my incisions at right?

The results is drastic. I am currently using Bio Oil for anti scarring on my incisions and hopefully they will heal perfectly. Btw, for those who are interested, here's the website of the place I did my surgery : http://eng.hershe9.com/index.php/html/453
( My surgery cost about RM3000+  )
