LONDON CALLING



































Photography by me.


Hey blog, its been a while. But then again, its also been a while since I've last been in HK. Thus the best way to make up for an unexplained absence is to post a myriad of photos explaining the unexplained. Still with me here? Yeah, neither am I. In short, I've spent the majority of June and July traveling all around the globe. In the span of four weeks, I've been on five planes and about to embark on my sixth one tomorrow. I started off my journey by visiting my sister in landan, where we spent many a day venturing out into the city, preparing for my big move in september (!!!) and overall, just having a good time. In my best attempt to list out all the places we went to, we visited canarby, piccadilly, chinatown, oxford circus and spent a lot of downtime in east london. I'll let you re-track our footsteps through these photos and hopefully you'll be as in love with london as I am.

FANCY // PROM 2014

Days are longer, time goes by slower and somehow, sand manages to find its way everywhere, and I mean everywhere. Summer has officially hit. And with the start of Summer comes with the end of a chapter, and what better way to bid farewell than with a big good ol' bang out celebration, prom. Its embarrassing how long ago these photos were taken and how they're just been shown on the blog. In short, prom 2014 was a short but sweet night in which we danced, ate, photoboothed and ate some more. For my final account as a high schooler, I wanted to keep things simple and timeless. I wore this 70's inspired sleek number that not only made me look a lot more statuesque than reality, it also allowed full food baby coverage, a necessity especially when hitting the buffet stand. Also being 6 and 1/2 inches taller didn't hurt. Prom was a fitting end to this roller coaster of high school and I'm now more eager than ever to move forward. I was also voted as 'daily best dressed' during prom, so altogether now 'I'm so fancy, you already know...'.

AS IF.

Its been said time and time again, but time is really a very peculiar thing. You either have too much or not enough of it. You wait for ages and it goes by so fast. Case in point, graduation. With great pleasure, I am pleased to announce that I have finally GRADUATED from high school! Cheers, freedom, liberation. Graduation is funny, it was a moment that I had been waiting seven years for and it went by in a flash. With that being said, I wouldn't have traded graduation from anything in the world. Well maybe James Franco.  So I've finally had enough time of high school. However, I've also had enough time off blogging. Its no secret that I've been absent from the blogosphere for about a month, citing exams as the main cause. Now that they're done and dusted, I can't wait to get back to html formatting, photoshop curving and general shooting. Thus with the discussion of time, I'm rewinding back to the time we took these photos.

Conrad shot these on our last week of school. Our last week of school had different costume themes for each day. This was taken on 'throwback thursday', and I, seeing my obsessive fascination with the era that entered through the birth canal, threw back to my homegurl best friends Cher and Dionne of Clueless, a.k.a pure 90's heaven. I actually had a white button up layered underneath but I took it off because it was scorching hot and I wanted to show a more 'me' side to the look. Ultimately, while my high school experience did not include a 'tai-inspired makeover', it did spark my lifelong obsession with knee highs and plaid. So in true Cher fashion, AS IF HIGH SCHOOL.

PS: These photos were taken a while ago so my hair is no longer this length. Goodbye blanket. And yes, brace yourselves, prom pics are coming xoxo. Also feedback on the new font would be nice.

COVEN





Hat- taobao.com | Shawl- Gift | Dress- borrowed from mum | Boots- Monki

I told you I'd be back with a hat (this dates back to this post)! Eeek! Has it really been that long since I've last posted?!  So much has happened in between this post and the previous one. For starters, I am actually free of school. This was actually taken during my last week of school (leaver's week). Each day had a different dress up theme and here is my 'AHS Coven Supreme' look for Day 1 Imagination (fictional characters). After all, a supreme is as good as it gets!

However, happiness, shock, horror and panic seep through as I realize that I am well and truly in preparation (more like procrasination?!!) for the terror known as the IB exams. April and May have been Xtremely busy for me (hence the X). In between studying, studying and studying, I've traded lookbook for literally looking at books, DSLRs for GDCs and typing for - god forbid- actual writing. With a pen. Unfortunately, this malicious mayhem won't be stopping anytime soon. Which is why, with deep sadness, I announce a hiatus from this blog until at least May 22nd, the day in which I am free of my IB exams. To all of those around the world preparing for the IB exams, good luck, good luck and good luck. If only I could use my coven powers to zap the exams away!

xoxo
