Happy chinese new year

Ahoi! Happy Chinese New Year. Gong Xi Fat Cai for anyone celebrating.

I didn't really celebrate it this year though. I did go to my aunts yesterday night for to pray for my late grandma, grandpa and uncle, as well as having a BBQ feast (not your typical lunar new year feast no?). I wish I could go back to 2-3 years ago, celebrate the new year properly, eat my grandma's ba kut soup and rip my auntie and om's off by asking for ang pao. can't believe that 2 years has passed since my grandma passed away... the last time I spoke to her was on the phone in chinese new years day. and then she fell sick, out of nowhere, and passed away. I was so sad that day.. but oh well life goes on.. I'm sure she's happy up there with my grandpa.

Anyway I bought this Rhodes & Beckett corporate shirt for work on sale to $84.. love it. Even though it kind of looks like Westpac's uniform. Their fabric is just divine... so smooth. I'd really like to buy their white shirts but they are never on sale. Not sure if I would spend a nice $160 for a single shirt. thats quite some kaching kaching.
and the rest of my week, according to instagram:

1.Cool dog is cooler than you
2. Still keen to try this. Wicked wings are THE bomb, bro.
3. dinner. half (!!!!) a chook and vegetables. didnt realize how big it is until its on my plate
4. My bling ninewest flats is falling apart....
5. bright lipstick at work. its Coco Rouge Gabrielle, by Chanel of course.
6. Had this lunch for the whole week. chicken wrap with nectarines (I love nectarines)
7. favourite magazine ever.
8. One of my outfits...
9. I go past this place everyday. I wish I live in one of those houses!! love Sydney.
10. The damn candy bar at work. mondays are especially evil. We have cheesecake and cup cakes today. (good bye healthy diet.. for today)

Cannot believe that another week have blitzed pass. Theres still many things I want to achieve.. but just havent been productive enough. I should do a Hewitt style COME ON!!!!! to myself.
^just like that. Speaking of which, he's playing Djokovic tonight. Going to be awesome. Not too sure what's with all the hate to him. yes his Come On and the stupid hand gesture makes me want to throw my shoe at him, but I admire his fire at the court. Tonight's match is going to be tough for him, chances are slim and I believe theres 90% chance that Djokovic is going to whoop his ass back to Bahamas. I hope hewitt wins though, I love underdogs :)

........ I am addicted. I check it more than facebook and twitter combined these days and posts the most mundane stuff there. the app does make ANY picture nicer....

1. Copenhagen ice cream @Circular Quay on a sunny day
2,6 I love pretty PJ pants. So long ugly house clothes!
3,4 Outfits. as you can see I love polkadots. They're different dresses- 3 is Topshop and 4 is Valleygirl.
5. Lunch at Menya Oiden- I got this beef bowl with soft boiled gooooey egg, a takoyaki, and green tea mousse for dessert whilst the boy got beef bowl with pork katsu- all these for $18.90!! can't complain. It was quite yummy as well.
6. This one is made by BeFunky app. Yesterday was a weird weather day, it was rainy once and then hot and sticky next. I wasnt sure what to wear so I just wear stripes. Gotta love having reliable basics (despite of the above photo makes me look pregnant. but whatever.)

Speaking of basics! I went around with the boy on sat to have lunch and went to INCU for the boy to shamelessly try on A.P.C jeans (and buy them online for cheaper, of course duh). He is mad about raw jeans at the moment- he already have 2 (or 3???) nudies in the exact.same.model and still would like more. He kept yapping about how he can customise it to have creases, marks, etc blah blah things that I don't understand as they all look the same to me.

Are raw jeans just a male thing or is it me that's so off the trend that I dont even care if they are raw or not? A cousin of mine bought a Tsubi last year,not sure if its raw or not and she said she loves it as if its her own baby. I have no idea. Looks just like normal denim jeans to me. As for me, I only have 2 pairs of Sass and Bide, one slouchy boyfriend fit and one skinny. I dont wear it often so I really dont have any lovey dovey feeling towards my jeans. Though I have to admit that they are damn comfortable especially when you have worn it & haven't washed it for weeks.

So as he tries his dear jeans, I went to women's INCU, saw some A.P.C goodies on sale, and fell in love too. The fabric! The cut! The cashmere cardis. In Carrie Bradshaw's words, its CASHMERE-acle!
The Liquette dress is beautiful. Its tres chic and elegant even though its so simple. Its probably because of the 'price effect', but still. INCU have it on sale for $240, which is actually quite a good deal considering the APC website itself is selling it for around $220 (+shipping). Its so tempting but the thoughts of having the originally $400+ dress crammed in a jammed wardrobe full of $50 dresses are just.. unfair. for the dress and for my wallet. So I left the store, sad because I dont have the dress, but happy because I get to keep my $240.

I also had a look at their Dion Lee goodies as well.. and of course I love them. SIGH.

The bf left the store without a jeans, which is good, but still a burning desire to own one A.P.C raw denim.

So there goes my weekend. Weather is not looking good here in Sydney. Maybe Rhys should come out and sing that Hot Summer song again so that the weather gets better.

Hows your weekend??? xxx

2012 goals

One of my 2012 resolutions is to enjoy life and document it more. and what better way is there to do so other than 'le blogging'? I have had many blogs before that I fail to upkeep, and this year, I swear, I plan to blog at least twice a week. I'd also like to do some outfit posts (still figuring out how to take pictures in the morning using my camera.. for some reason I can't change its timer from 3 sec to 10 sec.. 3 sec is not enough for me to pose duh..) and make the blog as me as possible.

Anyways. So I am now just back into the adult reality.. back to work and stuff.. from a 1 month holiday in my home country (and 3 days recovering from jet lag). My holiday was really good despite of the sickness and rain and traffic and polution, which are expected. Meeting and catching up with family and all friends is always good isn't it. the worst part of my holiday is of course the goodbyes.. it doesn't get any easier even when I've lived far away from my parents for more than 4 years now. I of course get the mini-few hours episode of being depressed and sad to know that I'm alone again in another country.. but after a shaky flight and a few good sleeps, I think I'm coping well with coming back to 'real life'.

I didn't shop as much as I have expected when I was in Indonesia, though my boy did (tailored suits, shirts, men shoes are so much cheaper there.. women's clothing are not that much cheaper). I do think that I shop ENOUGH, and imposed a shopping ban for myself once I landed in Sydney, BUT ASOS, well they screw it all. I 'accidentally' bought the following :D

Asos PETITE Exclusive High Waist pants

ASOS Cotton pussybow blouse
(bought AU 10 by accident, hopefully its not too big! I look forward for this item the most)

Voguettes have been raving about their delivery lately (4 days I heard) so hoping to get these items really soon! I also bought this Pinnochio wedges from Wittner yesterday for $60
Pinochio-Wittner Shoes, Fashion wedges
I have been looking for a brown wedges for ages and this one is perrrrrrfectttt. I also really want this red pumps but I didn't get it because they don't have my size in store yesterday :(
Jasper-Wittner Shoes, Fashion heels
Going to look around on the weekends.. if I find it on my size then, well, God of Shoes must want me to have this baby!! though I really shouldn't.. my attempts to follow my shopping ban is laughable... I swear I'm not gonna shop again from February!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SAVINGS HERE I COMEEEE

have a great friday folks........ xxxxxxxxxxxx
