Catch








Top: Catch
Bottom: A for Arcade
Shoes: Charles & Keith
Hat: H&M
So excited to be back in Maldives! The last time I was in Maldives was last October for a couples getaway with Imran. This time, I'm here with my crazy silly friends Daryl and Charlotte, and I know it's going to be a blast with them already.

The last time we arrived at our resort (Dusit Thani Maldives), we took a domestic plane followed by a short speedboat ride. (To the uninitiated, Maldives is made up of over 1200 islands, and each resort is situated in an island of its own!) This time, we got the opportunity to ride on a seaplane to the resort instead! We got crystal clear views of the Maldivian islands, and nothing says arriving in style like getting off a seaplane, in a beach-chic outfit.

Today's post features a Catch silk shirt with ribboning detail. This is the second Catch shirt I have and I always love the material and fit of the shirt: it's lightweight, made of incredibly lovely silk, and is ready to elegant-fy you.

Treehouse Living









Dress: The Tinsel Rack

OMG A TREEHOUSE!!! If you're not exclaiming, well, that's pretty much how I felt when I chanced upon this treehouse resort online. I was feeling a little curious and decided to look up "Treehouses in Asia" on Google, and let me tell you, I was so excited when Rabeang Pasak Treehouse Resort in Chiangmai came up! The resort was basically what fuelled this trip, and I booked tickets immediately to go there.

There is so much I have to say about this Treehouse, but I will save that for my next blog post where I share in full detail how I planned my stay + how I felt about my Chiangmai stay overall. As you can already gather from the pictures, the treehouse resort is highly instagram and photo-worthy, and there is so much to do and see there as well. Oh, and and we made a couple of adorable furry friends, who refused to leave us whenever we had food!

Will share more soon! Today's outfit features a The Tinsel Rack dress, one of my favourites from them thus far. x

Love,

Padi Field Sunset







Dress: Fash Mob

Cliche as it sounds, 2016 marks the start of a fresh new beginning for me. I've made a resolution to embark on trips and projects that are a true reflection of my personality - not that I haven't, but towards the end of 2015 I sort of had a clarity in my vision and direction of where and how I want to pursue dreachong.com. I want to build content that is me personified, I want to go to places where I want to go (2016 is my Asian-Invasion year!), and I want to share information that you as readers would want to know as well.

With that goal and belief in mind, I embarked on my first ever trip in 2016: to Chiangmai, Thailand. I've been to Chiangmai two years ago (how time flies!) and I've always loved the laid-back nature aspect of it. In my previous trip, we went to hot springs and rode on Bamboo rafts along one of Pai's rivers, in this trip, we explore padi fields and treehouses (check out the next blog post for images of the treehouse!).

This dress from Fash Mob was shot at the padi fields of Four Seasons Chiangmai. We actually lived in an Airbnb 10 minutes away from FS Chiangmai, but since I heard that sunsets over the FS padi field were pretty awesome, the group of us decided to head to FS to catch the sunset and have an early dinner there. It was serenity at its finest if I must say.
