Wednesday, July 31, 2013 :: Fossil @ Suntec
Visited the new FOSSIL store at Suntec Mall 2 weeks back thanks to Juliana and boy, Suntec is looking REALLY good with the new facelift! In addition, Fossil is extremely trendy with the new collections introduced this year. All along, I have associated Fossil with ruggedness, activities like mountain climbing and loads of earthy colors. I always think of Fossil products as being more function than fashion. However, the times have changed and I am so glad I made the trip down to the new Fossil store!
Fossil have soared to higher heights now by bringing fashion back into functionality with an expanding portfolio of products to name a few, handbags (some of which I really liked), clutches and watches with vibrant colors. Bagged home a new clutch from Fossil as well!I will let the pictures do the talking!
The Syndey Shopper is such a breezy bag to carry! I love it in the emerald hue!
Gasp! The Memoir Collection is one of my favourites in all the new arrivals!
Love this Memoir Biography Satchel in my most complementing color – orange
The buttery smooth leather of this entire collection that makes it very comfy to carry in your hand especially its’ wallets.
The cute Syndey Satchel
The small structured size of this bag suits petite girls like myself very well! Could very well be getting this as a weekender bag when I visit the Fossil store with John this weekend!
I couldn’t wait to show you the watches collection so here it is, plonked in the middle of my post haha.Fossil went UPSCALE with the new Swiss-Made watches and its a first for their brand!I REALLY LOVE the new watches! For someone who loves wearing boy watches with big faces, these watches really had me falling in love with them. What’s not to love with the affordable prices attached to these watches?Can you guess which is my favourite??
Yes! These 3 gorgeous watches!It is pretty similar to John’s watch so I didn’t get it in the end.But calling out to those who love boy watches like I do, check them out when you are at the store alright?I am sure you will love them!
Gahhh so classy! I love a man with a good looking watch like these ;)
The interchangeable straps which can change the look of your watch entirely.I love the 2nd strap from the left in nautical navy blue, red and white!
The so-friendly Sijie I call the handsome and friendly salesperson :p(But ladies, he is already married hahaha)
Here is Sijie’s watch looking all navy and vintage with the interchangeable strap!It looks really vintage and classy isn’t it?I just had to ask him to roll up his sleeves to let me take a photo!
One thing that I discovered on this day was Fossil has charms and bracelets as well! They come with very friendly prices! :)
The crossbody bag with a long feminine flap known as Memoir Novella Small Flap. Told you the Memoir collection has many pretty products!
Met Rachel at the Fossil store as well and she bagged home a functional and rugged watch (with an extremely big face) and the Ziptop Satchel Bag!
With Love,Fell in love with this Memoir Diary Clutch but I bagged home the one in black instead!(Thank you, Juliana!)By the way, this is not leopard preennnn alright? Haha this is crafted in hair calf cheetah print. Love that it is so fierce yet feminine! Cannot wait to bring it out and take OOTDs with it!
Rachel got this slouchy ziptop bag in purple hue at the store as well! :)
Haha I am quite the orange coloured lover so most of the bags I took photos of are in orange :p
The Medium Zip Pouch from the Syndey Collection. Love the colour blocking brights and its supple leather.
Also met the ever friendly and crazy Peggy at the store! ;)
Gahhhh look at Rachel’s shopping bags!Big thank you to the kind people at Fossil for having me at the store’s opening! :)

Monday, July 29, 2013 :: I Am Still Alive!
This place had been collecting dust ever since I embarked on a new journey in life and have been too busy ever since. My hectic life is coming to a slow now as I wait patiently to see the outcome of my hard work within the next 2 to 4 weeks time.
Gave myself an off day today on Monday to sort out a to-do list for my blog, spend some time with the loved ones and to attend Salon Vim’s bbq party in the evening! It is going to be crazy in the next few days when I catch up on blog entries, iron out VGY work and go furniture hunting for a new Vainpot Boutique! On a side note, finally had some time to catch up on Running Man (I am only at episode 78!) last night and decided to jump to the latest episode 155 instead but it was such a bad decision. Gahhhh it was a horror episode and I had to wake John up to accompany me to the bathroom. I get spooked out easily at the slightest thing.
This is long overdue (when was the trip? In May I think?) but never too late right haha.Snippets of the first day in Taiwan.
Stayed at Airline Inn which is such a convenient location!The bonus is the famous Ah Zhong Mian Xian (pardon my hanyupinyin if its wrong) was situated just BELOW our seemingly dodgy looking hotel from the outside haha.
How many times did we eat this over the five days in Taiwan?5? 6? 7? or 8 times? Anyway it was alot of bowls we consumed haha.
Airline Inn is a newly built hotel so it is extremely clean and surprisingly roomy!
Headed out alone while John was resting in the hotel and I was spotted by the owner of Liz Lisa!! He is a Japanese and an extremely nice guy. It was such an honour (and a pity) because he asked if I am a Taiwanese and whether I can be one of his Liz Lisa models for their shoots but I turned him down flatly simply because…I was spooked and found it too good to be true. It was only after when I told John about it and he said “it was such a good opportunity why did you turn him down” that reality began to hit me. On a side note, his Liz Lisa models looked pretty tall in their shoots/photos right? But they were in his entourage that day when he stopped me and damnnnnnnn we are of the same height!!!
It was so convenient with eyelash extension because…I don’t have to put makeup like eyeliner and lipstick to look good!This was the same makeup from the plane – just light loose foundation, eyebrows drawn, concealer under eye and blusher!I will be introducing a new Japan beauty salon in Singapore many thanks to Evonne for the recommendation!) who I will be working with in my next new posts so stay tuned! Excited to get my eyelash done with them because Evonne has been raving about the eyelash extension techniques used in Japan which make the eyes look fluttery with natural looking lashes!
Our first meal in Taiwan was pretty horrid.
Weight after massive junk food from road side stalls.This was 2 months ago! I am heavier now okay :p
The SK-II products which I brought along with me on the trip!
With Love,*Just a short post to keep this blog alive!Will be back with more posts this week! ;)Have a smashing good week y’all!
Wednesday, July 10, 2013 :: Japan Travelogue Day 6 – DisneySea
Have been most excited about sharing Day 6 because John brought me to DisneySea! He chose DisneySea over Disneyland as it is the only one in the world!
Woke up feeling extremely excited and happy and as usual, John made sure my makeup and hair is perfect before we left the hotel! You know those days in your life when you are genuinely happy with no worries and you remember every detail of the day and every emotion you felt? This was one of my days.
Tada! Tricia was here!
The moment we walked in, I saw Daisy and I dashed over to snap a photo with her haha. What happened to staying composed!
Everything looked so magical in DisneySea!
Bought………..a huge Minnie Hat….Really, what happened to staying composed –.-
Ran across the street because I saw…
Duffy! Every single girl walking on the streets of DisneySea was carrying a Duffy and I felt I had to get one too haha! Talking about public pressure –.-
Bought my Duffy bears! Will show it towards the end of the post!
John queued for food at every possible opportunity –.-
Love this sea salt vanilla ice cream so much! Wanted to have more but I was only restricted to just one by The Tham Guardian –.-
The queue was horribly long at most places so we decided to forgo the rides and explore the entire place instead!
Saw Mr Potato Head and I got all excited! Began blabbering to John “You know when I was young, Dad bought this for me with a Happy Meal and I like it so much it was in my pocket all the time y’know!!” Never mind he may not be listening hahaha. I was too excited to pick a fight :p
Found a mouse scuttling on the streets and I grabbed her for a photo hehe.Look at my smile! I think I have never smiled so happily for a long time!
Hahaha didn’t take me many empty promises to make him wear this :pHe always fall for it!
It was packed as hell at every available show in DisneySea!
This is such a collectible in DisneySea! It is a container where you can store your popcorn hee. There are so many different flavours of popcorn sold in DisneySea! Where else can you get that??
John queuing for food again!
AND AGAIN! -.-
The mascots were loitering all around the streets and I got all excited when I spotted this awfully cute squishy bunny! Is it from the Chipmunks?? It is so adorable! Was looking for a window opportunity when I can jump in to take a photo with bunny but..lost to the kids haha. Kids have such…such..short and fast legs -.-
It is such a beautiful sight! Really love this harbour! The sea, the manmade volcano, the ships, the rocks, the houses, everything looked so pretty!
Spotted another mushroom head :p
I would love to wear that kaftan top Goofy is wearing! It is so gypsy isn’t it!?
The harbour and abandoned ship looked sooo real! Everything looks damn real in here!
Literally crawled on fours to get to the front to watch the parade.I was that close to raising up my hands and shout “me! me! me!” when they were picking audience from the floor to participate in games XD
Spotted this cute lil chubby girl watching the parade too!Can you see her on the right?
Got all excited again after watching the parade and I did a Charlie-Chaplin-in-the-air :D
The carousel is a lovely childhood memory I hold dear to my heart :*)Although Mom is a piano teacher, I used to have piano lessons at Marine Parade when I was really really young. And after every lesson, Dad would exchange a huge bag of coins for me at the arcade and I will spend 1-2 hours in there all by myself. I still remember spending most of my coins taking the carousel again and again. And I would spend the remaining on taking a ride around the huge arcade on the big animal machines walking around the arcade led by the workers. Sometimes I spend my coins wisely enough to win some tickets from games and I exchange them for pencils, rubbers etc hahaha.
Until now, everytime I see a carousel, all these precious childhood memories comes back to me :*)
And now, John has taken the place of my Dad to love and care for me :*)Haha I sometimes relate them so closely to each other I would accidentally call my dad “Dear” and John “Daddy”. And everytime I never fail to get scolded by both lol :p
Entered the Mermaid Lagoon and it was made to look like the real “underwater world”! It is so amazing!
The memories are so vivid now even as I type this post. The joy of being a child all over again in this magical place with my loved one is so profoundly incredible :*) Came to Japan with some issues weighing on my mind but this trip to DisneySea gave me so much relaxation that I came to realize no matter how things seemed like it’s a dead end, there will be a way out somehow. What eventually stressed me up till no end turned out to be actually a really small matter but just that I magnified the intensity of the situation because I was too tensed up.
Thank you so much for bringing me here, my dearest! You opened my eyes to the world and I couldn’t be more thankful and blessed to travel around world with you! :*)
My cute Duffy and Shellie Maybears in winter wear! Bought this to commemorate this trip to Japan during its winter season and it is now sitting in our shared closet :*)
And I bought another Duffy soft toy! I do not like the big Duffy bear and I knew it would be forgotten in a corner one day. So I got a smaller one which is actually a hand puppet small enough to fit into my bag and to carry to sleep. It is so fluffy and soft to cuddle! ;) I cuddle it to sleep every night now!
Back at the hotel! After a long day out, we really enjoyed coming back to our intimate and comfy hotel room at Sunroute. Every night we returned to the hotel with freezing toes and fingers. And we looked forward to the hour long hot bath tub soak (till our skin turned wrinkly haha) while enjoying Running Man on the ipad heh.
So this very much concludes our trip to DisneySea! If you are heading to Japan, you may like to put DisneySea on your itinerary because it is such an incredible place to visit.
Feel free to leave a comment or email me if you have any questions! ;) But please do not ask me for the exact itinerary! John planned it in his head and in a rough paper haha (yes he is sloppy like that) so I have no record of the name of places we visited! Sorry!Check back soon! I have a great studio to introduce for blogshop shoots and shoots for any matter! ;)
I am making myself a permanent sight there too cos it is so cosy to hang around haha.Hang in there and have a productive mid week! Mine’s gonna be busy with shoots, meetings and appointments!
With Love,LET’S GO!
