Outfit

  Flat sandals are comfortable, light and cool.  I find the platform models even cool-er. The heels confer upon them a less casual and edgier look.  I got my latest design from the Minelli Summer collection.  I love the fringe detail and stripes on the platform heels. They look heavy but are actually not! They are possibly my… Read More »

  In the summer and tropical heat, you would normally care about wearing less than dressing up.  But what if you want to dress up to look feminine and stylish in something which is also easy and convenient to wear?  How to find a staple piece that you can wear over and over again? How… Read More »

  I looove sleeping – the feeling is simply amazing. I like the cocooning feeling of lying on your comfy bed, slowly falling asleep and waking up to a new morning after a nice dream. The bed and bedtime is a place/moment I feel secure, calm and good. Yet, I hate the idea of sleeping… Read More »

Tourists do not mind getting drenched in perspiration visiting the outdoor sites. Locals seek the comfort… Read More »

I slipped into mine before knowing how I would match it. I thought of something simple, like a black top.… Read More »

  2017 will be a year of discovery and adventure for me –  I have just arrived in Singapore to celebrate the Chinese New Year of the Rooster (or fire chicken say some) and …stay for a year!  Why Singapore?   I am half-Singaporean and I travel here every year to visit my big extended family… Read More »

  I wish I had the talent to write. But that is far from the case.  My head is a mishmash of ideas which I fail to organize in nicely written paragraph. Yes, I have a message I want to share but it often gets side-tracked or mixed up with other ideas. As I write this post, I am like “oh but what was the point of this intro” ?  Fortunately I like to have all my articles… Read More »
