Red China Beads

6 Feb

That necklace brings back memories of staying over at my cousin’s house and playing all weekend in the garden. The five of us used to invent weird obstacle courses with imaginary crocodiles on the porch (we had to climb along the fence and get silver paint all over our hands), and sit on their funny chair-shaped ixora bushes, and pluck pods from the Flame of the Forest tree and pretend that it was lipstick and talk to imaginary fairies living in Veronicas and swing precariously all over the garden swing instead of actually sitting in the chairs. We also did more dangerous things like hang upside down the stairs and incurring our very-much-older cousin’s wrath for not doing chinese homework… Oh man, good memories.

Except for the one where I stuck my hand through one of their trees to grab an egg from an abandoned nest, only to find that it was infested with ants.

Printed singlet ✿ gift (Bangkok)
Yellow cardigan ✿ Bugis Village

The beaded necklace from China has a screw-on clasp, and stray hair.

This was taken at home while I had some spare time before leaving for school. The Green and yellow combination reminds me of Hari Raya (Malay traditional holiday) and Kueh Lapis (Malay cake)!
The hot pink striped socks was hidden in the shoes. It would be great it it were made into a shoe (oh hey, idea!) XD

Thank god it’s Thursday! I hope the slab of meat I salted and put in the fridge for tomorrow’s lunch will turn out alright and as yummy as the one my dad made :DDDD
