There are a few things I hate more then people who have no pride in the way that they look. I do not expect people to be strutting around in designer garb, but I do expect society (in general) to be well dressed. Looking good should be something that you take pride in as a self respecting human being. So yea, I do judge people based on the way they look. So do you, admit it.

I find that the common thing I hear (especially from my family) when I’m truthful and say something about how this person looks bad is ” oh, that person doesn’t have alot of money, so how can they look good?” BULLSHIT I say, looking good does not equal to spending tons of money. It’s just a few calculated moves when shopping, buying what looks good for your body type, getting things that match at least 5 different items in your current wardrobe, keeping to a budget, waiting for a sale, that sort of thing.

And I find a really good way to update your look is with some color! Which is why whenever I’m too poor to shop, I let myself buy some colorful nail polish/ eyeliner to brighten up my day (:

I recently purchased these three colors, so pretty, so Burberry/ Marc Jacobs Spring/ Summer 2010 and so cheap! The lilac n honeydewish shades are from The Faceshop and cost $2.90 each, the turquoise is from a flea market and cost $3.00! Such GBs!

Happy CNY!

leave a comment »

We are just the same
As we have always been, love
Who’s to say that’s wrong?

Monday night was the annual CNY party at T+G’s home, as invited by Andrew (: As usual, the party was fabulous, the alcohol was flowing all night long and everybody was SMILING.

There were about 1000 chrysanthemums all over the house, so pretty!

I could not get a steady photo of the Chows, so I had to stand behind the glass and take a photo. I love these dogs, they are super cute!

Then we decided to play some mahjong, turning Wei Ming n Jules into CRAZY mahjong bitches!

I had an awesome time, and as usual, there was a treasure hunt, drunk ppl (heehee) and GREAT post-party stories which I cannot publish. Cheers to alcohol!!

I know that there are not many photos, but I was honestly ALOT drunker then I looked that night, and I only realized that because I forgot some parts of the night (oh dear!), and I have a very mysterious cut on my ankle which I do not remember getting. Heh.

On a completely separate note, I’ve started to update The Rainbow Suit rather frequently now, so if Tarot is something that has always interested you, do go have a read. You could also show your support by becoming a fan on Facebook! Thanks in advance (:

Our souls overlap
like twisted branches in snow
we were meant to be

Like the slug that I am, I spent the whole of yesterday sleeping & watching tv lying down. I feel like a fatty, let’s go partaye!!

Brightest Star

with 4 comments

I hope that someday,
I will find something beautiful in the wind.
Perhaps a likeness to your scent, your touch.

For since the day that you have gone,
all i can do is wait for moments,
to try and remember what it was like to be with you.

I hold on to the greying memories,
willing them to last just a little longer.
I fear for the day that they become a blur.

When your face fades away and I cannot remember us any longer.

People called us foolish, but there was no fault with us.
Perhaps we just knew what others did not,
that the summer was to be your last.

Still, all i can do is hold on to your memory,
and hope that it will suffice to get me through
the all consuming misery of losing you.

I watched the movie Bright Star today, it was so beautiful, I LOVED IT.

Although I do think that it is not for everyone, some will find it boring, but I thought it was perfect. Especially the cinematography, every shot was just beautiful. The colors were great, the acting was real, the atmosphere was so english, sigh. Love.

Now this is a great Valentine’s day movie (not that I’m one of those ppl who actually care about the day, I think its full of crap), the crappy looking Valentine’s day probably has nothing on this star. Gosh, I am such a sucker for period films.

Best I ever had

He looked straight at me
“You’re oddly fascinating”
He spoke to my heart

My life is in such a strange limbo right now, I have no idea what the fuck to do with myself and its so sickening. Don’t blame me for being incapable of “enjoying” my joblessness, its not enjoyable at all.

My only joys nowadays are in Skins & Secret Diary of a Call Girl which both have new seasons, meeting up with my friends and writing in my tarot blog (which is probably the only positive outcome of my boredom). On the other hand, I’ve thought up of new ways to occupy my time while I look for a job, I’ll keep you guys updated.

While reading through my RSS reader, I realized how much coverage the Acne show received, and well its not surprising, cause it was SO FABULOUS. Here are some of my favorite shots (:

The clothes are delish! Interesting without being too try hard. And the shoesssssss, omgthebluewedgesaremakingmesowet. Ok, back to wallowing in self pity.
