A Retrospective

Here's a lookback on some of the 'non-fashion' activities that I went through in the past year, courtesy of @nakedgloryvera on Instagram. Hehe. Most of the time my life is as boring as the average student - sleep at 230am, wake up at 930am, study, go to school, go to project meetings, attend hall activities, sleep again. But other times, I enjoy these simple moments captured thanks to my trusty iPhone, and I'm thankful for everything that I went through in 2012.

  1. Had my first dance concert in a theatre and received a giant bouquet of roses!
  2. Cooked up a storm in my kitchen for 5 hours to prepare for a picnic; celebrated my 20th birthday with rainbow cupcakes.
  3. Cooked brunch. Numerous times - tried poached eggs, caramelized bacon strips, egg in toast, scrambled eggs, and in the photo - chunky monkey pancakes! Chunky Monkey meaning I put mashed banana and chocolate chips in :3 Yums. Also went cafe-hopping and finally visited the lovely Carpenter & Cook.
  4. Had a shoot at Mediacorp and met with Sharon Au for the first time! I was very pleasantly surprised to see that she is so down to earth and motherly to everyone. And also the hot Kim Reyes shooting her 'mystery editor' shot.
  5. Attended Topshop x JW Anderson party, Hermes "The Art of Time" party, among others.
  6. Visited the newly opened Marine Life Park at Sentosa featuring a gigantic aquarium that immersed me underwater. Finally, I took a leap of faith and chopped my long hair off and then straightened my hair out.
Change is the only constant for me. I think I have a rather short attention span and always a thirst for new things, which is why I always want to talk to strangers, do something different with my looks, visit new places and challenge myself to do difficult things. And that contributes to why I love fashion so much too. It's the only passion I've been pursuing constantly for the past 2 years and I hope it will continue to stay as part of my life and who I am.
