  • In my very first post on OneBlogTwoLives, I recommended local musician Charlie Lim’s music and I also briefly mentioned that I would be meeting him in a few months. Well the day finally came and I got to meet him last friday while emceeing for my school’s dinner and dance, where Charlie serenaded the crowd with his own composition “Pedestal”, and “Daughters” by John Mayer. Marcus, Sally, Jemimah, Jon (Marcus’ bandmate), and I were all swooning at the side of the stage as he was singing, in Jemimah’s words, “you guys look like you’re gonna throw your ovaries at him”.
    Our “groupie fanaticism” didn’t stop there – Charlie is going to be performing at the Esplanade Recital Studio on the 31st August, and you can get your tickets at sistic for $28 (inc. booking fee). I already got mine, so what are you waiting for!
    Here’s a couple of photos I snapped with Charlie and my friends. I wore a Blue Midi Dress from Missypixie for the occasion!

     

     

    Continuing this blue trend over the weekend, I wore my custom-made Baju (“clothes” in Malay) for Hari Raya celebrations. It’s my 4th Hari Raya with my boyfriend and his family, and every year, I design and choose the materials for my outfit, then send it for tailoring! This year, the family was all decked out in blue! I designed a chiffon royal-blue top with an inner corset. To glam the outfit up since the top is a little plain, I chose a blue-and-gold material for my skirt, of course, this decision would not have been made without the valuable input from Imran, his mom and his nanny! My friend, Salimah, was very kind and got me a pair of blue Swarovski earrings from Europe, which perfectly matched my Hari Raya outfit!
     
    Say hi to my boyfriend! Who’s making his first cameo on my blog hehe.

     

     He couldn’t get enough of all the Hari Raya goodies and kept opening every container. See my shocked expression.
    My shocked expression still plastered on my face as Imran continues stuffing himself with goodies. This went on for a good 10 minutes.
    All in all, it was an amazing (blue) weekend with family and friends. Hope you guys had an awesome weekend as well, and to all my Malay friends, Selamat Hari Raya, maaf zahir batin!

  • Fashion – Outfit for Life

  • If I could choose one outfit to wear for my entire life, I think this outfit would be it. I just have this inclination towards white and nude-coloured stuff. And if i don’t know what to wear for the day, i can always trust a 3/4 pants and a simple top.

    I got my cardigan from H&M in London, white top from Zara and 3/4 pants from Esprit (which my parents bought for me when i was 12 i think, yes i have not grown since then), shoes from Far East Plaza!

  • Fashion – Feeling Badass

  • AHHH loving Joyce’s hair chalking stint! Makes her look pretty bad-ass doesn’t it? I secretly have this belief that I can pull off the bad-ass look, but no one seems to agree with me. Hai.Anyway! I have so much exciting news to share! Firstly, as some of you might know, I’m co-hosting a fashion show with my uni-roomie Jemimah for clicknetworktv. The series has yet to be aired as we’re still in the process of filming, but here’s a sneak preview of the show banner:

    Pretty right? Basically the show is gonna be all about Fashion! We’ll be interviewing online retailers, people on the street, up and coming designers, and even letting you in to our wardrobes! I will definitely be posting the link to the video here once it’s up, so watch this space!On to my second piece of exciting news: While filming for an episode of “That F Word” on Orchard Road, I got stopped by the good people at www.WatchingTrendsFashion.com, an online fashion magazine, and they snapped a photo of my outfit for uploading onto their Sartorialist segment. See the feature here: http://wardrobetrendsfashion.com/thumbd-issue-23/#.UBy94hEb9dE.facebook. I was so happy when I found out my outfit got featured – I mean, never in a million years would I have thought I would ever make it into a fashion magazine street fashion segment! I’m wearing ALDO shades, a Missypixie Top, Skirt i bought online, Bag I got from Malaysia, Bracelet from Far East Plaza, and my Jeffrey Campbell shoes.

    And thirdly, today’s outfit I’m sharing was taken at Fort Canning Park, and yup, this outfit was taken on the same day as my past outfit shot at FCP. I’m wearing a maxi dress I got at a flea market at St. James Power Station a few years ago… I think i got for about $10? It’s amazing what you can find at fleas! I decided to wear my Topshop biker jacket to contrast the soft look from the maxi. Again, here I am attempting to bring out my inner bad-ass. Oh, and shoes are from DKNY.

     

     

    Yup so that’s about all the good news I have to share with you. Thanks for reading guys! Till next time!
