For the longest time, I've been lusting over travelling to Japan. As has with most, I assume, my love for Japan started from spending way too much time reading manga and watching anime. Also, attributing to the fact that I was made in Japan (sorry, tmi), it seemed I was made for Japan. I loved the school uniforms and always wished I grew up wearing those instead of simple, vapid Singaporean ones. The culture is lovely and have I mentioned that I think Japanese is one of the most beautiful languages in the world? And of course, sushi and udon triumphs all.

A few months back, I was absolutely thrilled to have finally talked my parents into taking a family trip to this country I love so much. In all honesty, I was afraid that my high expectations would lead me to a greater disappointment about the country. But even with the fast paced lifestyle, getting packed like sardines in the crowded subway, getting bumped into without receiving an apology and the limited English proficiency (thank heavens I loved the language enough to take Japanese lessons), I know with utmost certainty that I will soon be going back to the land of the rising sun.

Albeit getting lost countless times, staring blankly and all sorts of confused at the subway map, nothing can describe the ambience of busy Japanese streets, getting naked in front of people in a public onsen, the scenery that every corner of Japan can bring, packets after packets of high quality microwave food at 7-eleven and buying a bottle of hot tea from any of the million vending machines in the harsh winds of winter.

Japan, I miss you so much. I can only hope these photos do you justice.

needs vs wants

Needs vs Wants

Being born and bred in sunny (aka torturous) Singapore, I've never had a chance to wear leather jackets and wondrous coats, yet I've been lusting over these winter pieces ever since I've entered the 'fashion world'. But with my upcoming trip to Tokyo during the winter season, I finally have an obligatory need and reason to invest in these objects of lust. So for the past month since the trip was confirmed, I've been considering whether to splurge on them in Singapore or play safe and buy them in Japan. Although I've mostly decided on doing the latter, 'tis the season of giving (or treating yourself, really) and since Net-a-Porter is offering up to 50% off designer brands, convince yourself that you've been good this year, then take on the role of Santa Claus.

Hi there, I am still alive and I'm back from an unannounced hiatus with a post that has a title with reference to a movie/book I never watched/read. If you haven't seen this answer from my askfm, my absence was partly due to my preparation for a violin diploma exam, coupled with the loss of inspiration. I was, however, still actively posting away on Instagram, which seems to be the only social media I utilize now, besides procrastinating violin practice with random articles and Buzzfeed lists on Facebook. Nothing has been missed during my act of disappearance, except for Clash of Clans becoming my life, me getting rid of my curls and falling in love with another pair of Nikes.

But anyway, I digress.

About a month ago, So Frocking Good approached me and so frocking kindly interviewed me for a feature on the shop's blog. You can go take a look and have a read to know more about me, or shop for my outfit (or your own) on their store. Meanwhile, I've procrastinated enough and it's time for me to get back to trying not to sound like I'm killing chickens with my violin (aka time to disappear again). I pinky promise, that I will be back to regular posting after the exam, which is just a month away (hyperventilates).
