Food : Super Lazy Sunday Sandwich

It’s a Sunday. I would either be very enthusiastic about cooking something complex or I would just make something super simple. Or the Malaysian would say ‘sempoi’.

Today, I chose to be extra lazy. Hence, this scrumptious sandwich was made.

Sautéed Bacon, Swiss Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions, Sharp Cheddar Cheese with Fresh Watercress Sprouts on Country Herb Bread.

The yummy gooey melted cheese, soft caramalized onions and the crispness from the sprouts just hit it off!

Fashion Diary : Day 2 at KLFW 2013

wpid-IMG_20130620_192932.jpg

Day 2 at KLFW 2013 was all in all FUN & FABULOUS!

Started the day with 12.30pm show by four designers: For All by Villiam Ooi, Mimpikita, When Our Eyes Met and Zero To Ten. This time, I wasn’t only there to see the show but to help out Min (Yasmin Ramli), the designer of When Our Eyes Met, with the guest arrangements. The show was great! Will post up the fashion feed soon.

The main highlight of Day 2 was definitely the show by Jonathan Liang.  The show was nothing short of spectacular. It was a full house filled with fashionable socialites, celebrities, fashionistas, designers and more. All I saw was gorgeous, fabulous fashion people gathered for the show and made it all hyped up. I mean..it’s Jonathan Liang right?

When the show ended, that’s when the real party began! Hahaa! This is when all the fashion people round up not just to have a chat or two but to get crazier than we already are and partayyy!

Fashion Diary : First Day of KLFW 2013.

image

The first day of KLFW 2013 has just ended. There were 5 shows for the day showcasing 13 designers. I attended all shows and captured every single outfit and the detailing too. I can’t wait to share it with you.

It has also been a super tiring day for me and I should hit the sack soon to get ready for the second day. Hence, I will not be posting the fashion feed for today’s show yet. But I promise you I will do so soonest.

The shows were spectacular, though it started a bit late. Oh well..it’s the Malaysian fashion scene. Nuff said. Nonetheless, I’d say everything else was fabulous and amazing. The shows. The fashion people. Everyone made that little effort to look fierce and fantastic. And it is only the first day!

My outfit of the day I decided to use my utilitarian army jacket again with a full black sequinned dress, black clutch and my black boots with Anna dello Russo emerald earrings. I purposely played the contrasting elements of the glam up and utilitarian looks in one.

Jacket: from a friend. Sequinned dress: Zara. Boots: Zara. Clutch bag: flea market. Earrings: Anna Dello Russo from H&M. Bracelets: Lovisa and Eight.

Fashion Feed : J Mendel Resort 2014 Collection.

I love J. Mendel’s Resort 2014 Collection. The lines, patterns, shapes and silhouettes were all well executed.

“Ma Sirène”, a poem written by Robest Desnos was said to be part of Gilles Mendel’s inspiration behind this collection. It was about the underwater blue siren. There weren’t much blue in the collection though. There were black, white, cream, and soft pink. I can see some layering done. Probably inspired from the waves of the sea.

There were a lot of stripes. I love stripes. Mendel has always avoided this but he wanted to experiment it this time and it worked. The stripes on the dresses and skirt were flattering and dramatic but subtle in a way. Sheer organza was prominently used. A peek-a-boo accent in all the right places.

So tell me, which one is your favourite?

Fashion Style : Flying off in Fierce Utilitarian Chic


Utilitarian Chic 01Utilitarian Chic 02Utilitarian Chic 03Utilitarian Chic 04c

This is the day I fly off to Kota Kinabalu (KK), Sabah. To chill. To breathe.

I made a little extra effort this time and chose to rock this look to travel. Fierce Utilitarian Chic look was what I aimed for.

I don’t usually travel in shorts except if I’m flying to an island, but KL is extremely hot and humid. I figured that the aircraft would be like a freezer as it always is, so I pulled up the mesh leggings (yes, it’s leggings, not stockings) with my basic white top and the brown boots I got at a steal price! The army jacket is actually for male. A real army jacket. But it was the perfect finish to my Utilitarian Chic.

Top: H&M. Shorts: Cotton On. Belt: Pull & Bear. Mesh Leggings: flea market. Boots: River Island. Jacket: from a friend. Handbag: Tod’s. Sunglasses: Rack by Kila Fairy. Bracelet & Skull Ring: Lovisa.  Leopard Ring: House of Eight. Watch: Casio Databank Calculator

The F Words

image

When we say the F words, what are the first few words that come up of your mind? The word F*ck defintely was the very first one for me. Haha.

Truth is my favourite alphabet is F. Hence, The F Words was chosen for me to talk and share about my take on Fashion, Food, Feast, Festivals, Fun times, Faves, Family, Friends and I could go on and on Forever with F.

The F word for today is First. For First write up. First article. First for all the Fs I shall talk and share with you.

It’s been years, a decade or more perhaps, that my family, friends, acquaintances and clients have been trying to persuade me to start to blog and share.

So, here goes The F Words for you by me. My way. Let’s spread some F*cking love here!
