taking a break


(don't get me wrong, the two cups are fresh orange + banana smoothies. really delish)

I am sorry for ignoring this blog for a while since I have been terribly occupied with school work and Esquire work. (For those of you who don't know, I am working there as a freelance writer/editorial assistant/I write articles in a nutshell anyway) Since I am in my final year in university, I am busy with final papers and preparing for graduate job. Nonetheless, I will still update this blog. On a side note, I am actually planning to start a Youtube channel so we can have a brand new platform to communicate. Stay tuned. May the force be with you.

river island watch



I have been wearing this River Island watch for more than a month and I have received so many compliments for it from my friends and strangers so I think I may as well share this watch with you lovely people. The minimal design of it surely helps catch people's attention and it is so much cheaper than buying a Daniel Wellington one.

Asos still had stock yesterday and it goes out of stock today ... anyway, the link here, click me to go!

more than one way to skin a cat

(collage made by me, all rights reserved. do not steal.)

Have you read Malcolm Gladwell's The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference? (Kind of a good read but really takes time to digest) The first chapter of the book examines the legendary bloom of Hush Puppies. The brand was languishing at one point but was flowering again in a few days all because of a sudden craze over the brand, as one may as well conclude the whole conceptualisation as "trending".

Speaking of fanaticism, hardly can one not to mention Daniel Wellington, it has been prevalent amongst fashionistas, surprisingly even around some of my friends who have been wearing CASIO or Swatch for a few decent years. Everyone is abruptly obsessed with it. Of course, I appreciate the astonishing minimal design of Daniel Wellington watches. But when it gets so insanely ubiquitous, to a certain extent it actually halts me from buying one ... Because who wants to wear something everyone else does too? So, if we are on the same team, have a look on these four gorgeous watches handpicked by me. They are very unisex for me so do remember to add them in your shopping carts.

01/ Nixon Acetate Watch - $125 / CASE: 37mm, 100 meter, custom handmade acetate case, fixed handmade acetate bezel, hardened mineral crystal, triple gasket stainless steel crown, stainless steel screw down caseback and spring pin lugs. / Nixon offers a limited warranty of defects in materials and workmanship for a period of two (2) years after original purchase.

02 / The Horse Watch - $129 / From their small warehouse in Sydney, Scott & Amy continue their cobbler trade but with an equine edge: their unique label The Horse. This label describes a different approach to your regular slipper. You see, adding on the approach of a farrier (one who shoes horses) Scott & Amy are always changing, tailoring and fashioning their shoe design (as a farrier would for the hoof of a horse) until the leather wears and works best with our own human heels.

03 / Larsson & Jennings Watch - £315 / Established in STHLM and LDN, Larsson & Jennings is an Anglo-Swedish label creating contemporary watches which combine classic British aesthetic and Swedish minimalistic design. The unisex watches modernise classic style and take design inspiration from their Swedish and British roots.

04 / Stirling Lansen Watch - $230 / Stirling Lansen is a fixed lug watch which features a steel sunray dial with a high contrast yellow second hand, circular black hour index markers and minute/second markers in black and yellow. The band is a one piece braided leather band made in black organic leather by Swedish tannery Tärnsjö. Water resistance 5 ATM.
