And The Boy dressed like spring.

(Probably the reason why I was the only one afflicted with a whole day’s worth of sinus and scaring people with flu symptoms heehehe!)

I don’t remember this, but my family recounted that in the past I used to love wearing a particular puffy, itchy, scratchy dress out. They said that my vanity overruled comfort. Personally, I think I was just deprived of girly things.

I started taking note of the way I dress when I started posting to the wonderful w_r community last year. Being in art school helped a lot because people are more accepting and there is a lot of inspiration to draw from :P

I have a drawer full of leggings and socks. Recently two of my friends from different cliques came back from overseas and bought leggings for me as souvenirs. Apparently I am known as the girl who would wear leggings that they would never dare to wear… said drawer is about to burst very soon XDDD

When I buy clothes, part of the deciding factor is whether it would be a hassle to wash; this usually rules out glitter and sequins. Another part is its ability to be worn without being ironed :P (which shouldn’t be surprising if you already know the depths– or lack thereof- of my laziness ^^;)

There was no make up when I was growing up, largely because my mum is a tomboy (when she took us out for meals in the past all of us would burst into hysterics whenever the waiters called her ‘sir’). My first taste of a lipstick came from the tip of a traditional lipstick brush when I visited my grandaunt who lived in Chinatown. Her adopted daughter applied a bright shade of red for me in the toilet. I was so happy.

When I was younger, my father brought my younger brother and I to China during winter. We rode horses up the mountains. Unfortunately my father did not account for adequate warm clothes for young children and packed too little. He also did not pack socks. My brother turned blue. The entire tour bus took pity on us when we got back and piled clothes on top of our shivering frames XDDDD

I am 168cm (5″6) tall. Most people don’t notice it until they’re right next to me and then they exclaim their amazement (because chances are that I’m taller than most Asian females). I blame the big head for the disillusionment. The bad thing about this is that dresses become mini-dresses. The good thing is that I have another excuse to wear leggings :P

I think that’s seven. I tried to make it clothes related :P Although as with my previous memes, the tag ends here but feel free to try this because it’s fun! I had a good time chuckling after remembering some of the childhood memories XDDD

Forever Meme

15 May

I finally caved in and bought something from Forever 21. The material on that simple dress is gorgeous! I kept making people touch it XDD

There’s a strap which ties into a ribbon at the back but it’s a little difficult to see through all the black.

20090513e
Had neglected my fingernails (usually cut them once a week but last week was a mess of flu and medicine and inertia) and it kept snagging out strings of the leggings >_<

Also, during lecture that day I finally got down to Emily‘s tag. One of the reasons why the last row of a lecture theatre is always my favourite :)

I did a variation the last time so this time I picked out questions that weren’t in the one I did… which were still a lot!

Thank you for tagging me!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Meme #1

28 Mar

Tagged by the lovely Kaja of Wardrobe Frenzy :D This meme spanned a few days so answers to ‘today’ or ‘right now’ means a few days ago to the actual today ^^;

The rules are:
1. Respond and rework: answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention, add one more question of your own.
2. Tag eight other un-tagged people.

What is your current obsession?
meme0101
Preproduction module I’m taking for FYP, am in a group of two other talented individuals that I feel inadequate sometimes :S

I rarely take naps, but prefer to spend the time in front of the computer and then concuss for as long a period as possible, preferably till afternoon.

Why is today special?
meme0103
It’s different everyday.

What would you like to learn to do?
Driving! I’ve been putting it off for 5 years… Although my tendency to sleep in a moving vehicle and the propensity of getting lost may make me more of a liability than a good chauffeur :P

What’s for dinner today?
meme0104
Transferring the pictures from my phone corrupted them, but this has got to be the nicest goma ice cream I’ve ever seen in Pepper Lunch, and it was made by a boy! His handwriting must be nice to look at too XD

What’s the last thing you bought?
meme0105
:DDDDDDDDD

What are you listening to right now?
The occasional sound of vehicles passing by at 2am.

How do you keep your accessories?
meme0106
Stack-able boxes from IKEA, though the earrings tend to get tangled up…

What is on your bedside table?
meme0107
I don’t have a bedside table, so it’s just my phone (alarm clock) and spectacles on the floor XD

What’s your style?
Casual, I guess!

What is your most challenging goal right now?
meme0108
Staying awake till the end of April.

What do you think about the person who tagged you?
I think Kaja is really pretty and cheerful and fun!

If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
Anywhere with four seasons next to a bookstore in a city with a good public transport system so I could explore! I’m not picky :D

Favourite vacation spot?
meme0110
Japan is my favourite just for Panda-san <3<3<333

Name the things you cannot live without.
Water, food, comfortable bed.

How was your childhood?
meme0111

That’s me on the extreme left, my cousins in the middle, and my brother on the extreme right making his demonic face :P

What would you like to get rid of?
Cockroaches.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
If it’s only an hour, I think I’d go to Chomp Chomp (a food place in Singapore) for barbequed chicken and satay for supper.

Which language do you want to learn?
If only I could learn all the languages of the world! Traveling would be an even more amazing experience.

Which countries have you visited:
Malaysia, Indonesia, United States, Canada, Australia, France, Italy, Switzerland, Netherlands, Holland, Germany, Liechtenstein, Austria, Japan, Korea, China… I can’t remember a lot of the places I’ve been to because I was too young and too forgetful (am still so!)

What do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to be someone who knows what I want to do with my life.

What do you think really matters in life?
Difficult question! I’m still trying to figure out what I want out of my life, and so have not come to a conclusion as to what really matters… But I feel that the acceptance of death plays an important role in my journey.

What is your favourite thing to collect?
meme0112
I know I should be using them more often than I’m hoarding :S

I don’t know who to tag so if anyone wants to continue this meme from here on do let me know so that I can kaypoh! (that’s Singlish for being nosey and inquisitive :P)
