YOUR DAWN, MY NOON.

Your voice carries me through,
returning back to what a weekend.
You shaped a vacation for me within my own city.
Come back and serenade me again.

There's a certain warmth about you.
From the way you move, the way you speak, your eyes.
Not forgetting you have to be my favourite voice and will always be.

"It's so sad that we're so far away."

I will always remember the things you've said before.
Your good-bye felt like a lot of good-byes said to me all at once.

Why?

Raising roof at pitches
I can't comprehend.

God, Shut them up.

Taking leave.
Silence, you are not much better...

God, Shut me up...

Habitually my thoughts flow
only towards your direction.
I'm still waiting, patiently.
I think I am.

You know,
so many times we complain of
what's around us
only to miss it
when it's gone.

Here I am so sure I will never
deprecate your existence
or presence.
But It feels like
you're about to be
gone.

?

I have not been doing anything
than missing you since.

Is that why?

SHARING OVER DINNER: #SHAREACOKE



Nothing feels better than to receive your favourite drink with your name on it. I have to Thank the team & Jacqueline from Ogilvy for thinking of me. I decided to do something fun in collaboration of SG50 and #ShareACoke. This time of the year, I wanted to #Shareacoke with my family. I've been busy with work and everything else that I haven't been spending time with my family. So, I decided to arrange a small get together for all of us to have dinner together.. It was a success and we had so much fun catching up. Watch the video here & the recipes after..





CHEESY MUSHROOMS
Decided to try something fun with Button mushrooms and filled them with Parmesan cheese and a diced tomato. Sprinkled some salt and pepper on the top for some flavour before putting them into the oven. I pre-heated the oven for a little bit before putting them in with a aluminium foil base.
Just kept checking on them till I felt they were ready and stopped the oven. I still kept the mushrooms in to keep them warm while waiting for the guests to arrive.



TRUFFLE BROCCOLI
Added olive truffle oil my dad got from Paris awhile back and just tossed the chopped broccoli in. Sauté with some diced garlics, salt and pepper. EASY.



CABONARA MUSHROOM PASTA
(Serving for 8 people) I boiled 2 Packets of pasta hoping it's enough for the 8 of us. Adding a dash of olive oil into the pot so that when I strain the pasta it wouldn't be too dry/ stick to one another. Followed the instructions on the Prego label to cook the sauce but added some chopped garlic into the sauce to give it flavour.


Also, I decided to add some pork to the sauce. Marinated the pork with Salt, Pepper and some starch (just a dash). Mixed well and then sauté.
Set aside from pasta and served together when ready to eat.




COCA-COLA CHICKEN WINGS
Got a 20 packet chicken wing from the market and first, to marinate it with 1 tsp light soy sauce, 2 tsp dark soy sauce and 1 tsp sesame oil for 15 minutes.
Heat some olive oil in wok or saucepan and brown chicken on both sides. Then add enough Coca-Cola for the chicken wings to simmer. Also add some water to fill the pan, some sliced garlic and leftover marinade sauce. (depending on the size of your pan and the amount of chicken wings you're cooking per go) Simmered it for 15-20 minutes until the sauce is reduced to a thick & sticky syrup, then turning once halfway.

 



COCA-COLA FLOAT
Easy. Coke, Ice Cream of choice, whip-cream on top and then cherries plus blue berries. (Mostly based from gut feelings)



Just have fun with it.

GUCCI FALL WINTER 2015/2016 PREVIEW


Had the pleasure to get touchy feely and join #GucciSg for their preview of the Gucci Fall Winter 2015/2016 Collection. The collection consisted of intricate delicate laces, soft flowy fabrics, leather pleated skirts and structured suits. I loved the detailed embroidery and the complementary colours... Also, something that I can't forget is the vibe that the collection gave: It brings to mind an imagination of a quirky girl with a great taste in vintage clothing and shift silhouettes. Love at first sight – it was overall an impressive collection that I was not expecting to fall for. Oh, not to forget the furry footwear!

Let's move on to the visuals, enjoy!














 As usual, @Division_Events did it again with yet another kick-ass set-up. The mix up of a luxury brand preview within such an artistic and underground-ish space that is so raw and rugged, surprisingly goes so well together. This mix of opposing cultures seems to be the beginning of something beautiful to come and I am thrilled to see these recurring themes of mixing fashion and art emerging in Singapore. From my imaginations to reality (finally!).

The footage of the runway being projected all around us, including a huge projection on the building opposite us! So visually satiating.








Paired my @PomeloFashion pinstripe shirt dress with a Hermes x Jackie Chan Charity edition silk scarf as a head wrap... I was trying to pull off some sort of old school hiphop look here, but I don't know if that worked out as I did not have my hoop earrings on, ugh! I guess the lesson here is that you don't always end up looking like how you envisioned in your mind. Haha!






Hope you enjoyed the visuals!
