Seoul city ( list of food and stuff. )

Tuesday, July 4, 2017

It's been a year since the last time I've been to Seoul. I'm so grateful to be back in Seoul again for Michael Kors FW'17 presentation. I've seen the collection online when it was shown in New York. The fall winter collection is very sexy yet strong, a lots of fur, leather, something that I would like wear. Looking at the pieces on the presentation was so satisfying. Huge thank you to Team Michael Kors for hosting me! 

Here's some of the photo taken during my trip : 

I just realised most of the photos is me drinking things. LOL. 

Anyway, here's some of the places I've been during my trip 
(some may not be in the photos and some I couldn't find it in google 😨 ) :

5 Brewing Coffee
- 마포ꡬ μ–΄μšΈλ§ˆλ‹Ήλ‘œ 55-12 Seogyo-dong ( idk why the address is in korean. )
Love the vibes here, with raw, unfinished furnitures. Good coffee too! 

Maple Tree House
- 26 Itaewon-ro 27ga-gil, Itaewon-dong, Yongsan-gu, Seoul, South Korea
I guess it's pretty famous. Not bad at all.

Dawoori Seolleung Tang
- μ„œμšΈνŠΉλ³„μ‹œ 마포ꡬ μƒμˆ˜λ™ 337-6 ( 337-6 Sangsu-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul )
It's a really shop but the SEOL LEUNG TANG ( beef bone soup ) is LEGIT.

Isaac Toast Hongik University
- Mapo-gu, Seogyo-dong, Wausan-ro, 93
There's a rave about this toast, went to try, didn't think it's that special but heard that it's super good if you eat it in cold weather.

Mr Holmes Bakehouse Seoul
- Seoul, Gangnam-gu, Apgujeong-ro 10-gil, 34
A famous bakehouse from San Fransisco, famous for their cruffin. It's really good!

743-1, Hannam-dong, Yongsan-gu Seoul.
Jack brought us here, apparently this guy opened this restaurant using his mother's home cook recipe. Traditional Korean in a hip place. 

Madholic Hip-hop club
Seoul, Mapo-gu, Seokyo-Dong 405-15
Underground hiphop/rnb club. Dope. 

ν™λŒ€ λ”κ·€μ—¬μ›Œ μ• κ²¬μΉ΄νŽ˜ ( the dog cafe I went )
couldn't find the address, but I found their facebook 
All you need is to buy a drink as entrance fee.

- seogyo-dong 405-18
Okay, I don't have the picture of the place but it's like a 2-3 stories building and it looks like a bar instead. People mostly go at night I guess, we had it before clubbing. Basically you can see people ordering mini hot pots, that must be it.
THE CLAM SOUP IS MADNESS. Look how big is it. 

Guess that's it! Hope it helps you on your trip to seoul in the future! 

They say you will expire.

Tuesday, June 27, 2017

"Girl, faster find boyfriend lo, later you expire already, no one wants you already."

"Reality is like that one, after 30 you are out from the market."

"All my friends getting married and having kids already, what am I doing with my life?"

"Still don't get married ah? Later too old to have baby already."

How many of you are familiar with these lines? I think we pretty much grew up in a society that tells you the perfect age to get married, to have kids or else, you are doomed. As scary as it sounds, how many of us are constantly doubting ourselves, fearing to age? 

I was. 

I once had a conversation with this aussie lady, she was about 34 and I was like 23? I was telling her my birthday is coming and I didn't want to celebrate my birthday anymore after 25 because it's so embarrassing. She told me that it's funny how when she was younger, she felt the same way too but surprisingly stepping into her 30s is the best thing that has ever happened to her. 

She told me when she was 21, she had so much fun, she didn't really know what was going on with her life but she just had so much fun. Everything is so vivid, you thought you know what you're doing, but in another second, you lose track of what you're doing? ( you get what i mean?) When she turned 30 few years ago, she realised that she's settled with a job that she really enjoys, she has a clear mind on what she wants in life and found what she believes in which explains why she thinks that turning 30 isn't as bad as it seems.

It kinda make sense, but back then, in my heart was like, 

"wah angmoh really thinks differently.
I literally told her that in Asia, you're most likely off the market after you turn 30. Now, I really wish to take those words back. It's so embarrassing, but I'm also glad to finally understand what she meant now.

It's funny that we grow up in a society telling us girls to find a boyfriend at certain age, so we don't get expired. Telling us how getting married is so important, constantly getting questions about boyfriends, marriage or kids, but how many of them actually ask you, HAVE YOU FOUND YOURSELF?

How many of us neglected this? I think this question is wayyyyyyy more important to us.  I've seen girls helping their friends to get a boyfriend but not many are open to talk about finding themselves. Why is it so terrifying for women to have big dreams? Or is it that bad for girls to have strong opinions? Because most men find it intimidating? Or most men don't like their partners to be too "strong", or what they called it "hard to be tamed". I don't blame them or judge them, I always believe that the world is going to treat you as how you see it through. A man who truly loves you will listen, will respect what you stand for and supports you. ( vice versa. )  Stopping you for voicing your opinions, or slamming your ideas without listening to you, girl, that man does not know how to respect you. 

First thing first, find yourself.

It's never too late to find yourself, no matter you're 20, 30 or 40. You are never going to be expired or feel like one. Always speak for yourself, because if you don't, no one is going to listen or understand where you are coming from. 
Don't force yourself to accept things that don't make you feel good, because your feelings are as important as everyone else. 
Always have opinions, yet respect that people have different opinions. 
Even greater, force yourself to look from different perspectives, and you will find what works for you and what doesn't. Learn what works and walk away from what doesn't.
Embrace what life throws at you.

Can't believe I'm saying this, but aging suddenly doesn't sound that terrifying.
Because I know, I will never be expire, so do you.
I hope reading this helps you too. 

Ending this with what inspires me to write this.

Friday, June 9, 2017

Guess you've seen my Everyday look featuring mostly Nars products! Yes, a little collaboration with Nars to create an everyday look! This look is really natural and light, it's totally what I will wear everyday. Emphasising on the cheeks to create a healthy, happy skin and the Orgasm blush has been my favourite for years! Glad that they came up with a liquid blush for a longer lasting blush ☺️   Or you can watch it here :

Do you know that 70% women rarely / never orgasm? But some women can even orgasm when kissing. I know, just being random lol.

Maldives with Jimmy Choo

Monday, May 29, 2017

When Carrie from Jimmy Choo told us that we are going on a secret #chootravels trip  with influencers from all over Asia to work on a digital campaign, I literally took like 3 days to realise it was not a dream. Took another 3 days to calm down when secret reveals that we are actually going to Maldives. Summer in Maldives, what can I ask for more?  

Team Jimmy Choo did a great job on our stay in Constance Halaveli. It was perfect for two nights ( eventho I seceretly wish I could stay longerrrr ) . The hospitality, the villas, the food, everything was tip top! I guess by far the best work trip I ever been to!   Getting to work with Candice Lake ( Vogue Australia Style Editor / Photographer ) was a pleasure. Imagine shooting 8 of us, 3 styles each, in two days, she totally ace it. Everyone look so good in all the pictures.

I'm so happy to meet new friends from different countries, everyone is so friendly and nice. It's amazing how I actually meet them in real life and I'm pretty sure I was star-struck-ing over the entire trip. Anyway, here's some of the photos taken over the trip! 


Also, all three looks from what we were there for!

Thank you Team Jimmy Choo for everything. Big Hugs and Kisses!!!!

Obsession for black items.

Wednesday, May 3, 2017

I have a confession, a confession about my obsession for the colour black. Or should I say, matte blacks. There's something about matte blacks that make things look extra sexy, classy sexy, don't you agree? I personally think that matte blacks give a feeling of coolness, edginess, and its goes well on almost everything. The unfinished texture of matte black items just give me weird satisfactions, I just can't find a word to describe it!

Anyway, I've own tons of matte black items, including not one but THREE luggages in matte blacks. Definitely make a statement for an Airport fashion look.

Also, one of the reasons of my love for NARS cosmetic products, their matte black packaging. I have almost everything, lipsticks, bronzer, eyeshadows.... I mean how can someone resists?

My favourite pair of sunglasses is in matte black too! It goes well with anything! Makes any look extra cooler. I'm already planning to get another matte black sunnies in a different frame.

Not forgetting the headsets I use for my DJ gigs are in matte black. I can still remember when I saw it in a record shop, I just have to bring it home. It's too pretty to just sit on the shelf lol. Like what I just said, these headsets are the best to match my outfit, no matte what gig I'm playing on, fashion or parties, it never goes wrong!

I do wish I'll drive a matte black G-wagon someday...

Speaking about matte blacks, OPPO R9s has launched black version and it's getting a lot of attention! It might not be the first black phone, but it certainly is a good quality and affordable one.

If you haven’t heard about the OPPO R9s, it comes in a 5.5" wide screen, featuring a 16MP front and Rear Camera. Also, a really long lasting battery life of 3010mAh. These are some of the pictures that I took with it.
