Today marks the last working day of 2012 for me. And the last blogging that I'll be doing till I return from my trip early next month.

Okay, so wait for it -

Pop some bottles of champagne people, because the day has finally arrived for me to embark on my next adventure -grins widely with full metal mouth in display- . From the day we paid for our air tickets, excitement has had no bounds. And let me just say this, believe it or not,  I'm pretty sure that I've also possibly gone through 80% of Google's search list on recent blog posts on Japan travelogues. Yes, I kid you not, I am that thrilled kiddos. But of course, experiencing the real deal and tastes is a whole different matter, one which I will be living in less than 24 hours. Yessssssssah.

Soon enough I'll be back (well I hope it doesn't need to be that soon really, but reality sucks anyway), bursting and no longer fitting my clothes. Pleasssssssse Santa, all I really ask for is to NOT gain the pounds.

So for now its just goodbye then, till we say hello again.

But before we do, some thoughts on the passing year and sidetracking to leather on leather action today.

So I haven't left for the land of rising sun yet, but I had a little fun composing some outfits in mind for the upcoming trip to Bali after anyway. A total contrast to my winter wear problems in Japan, Bali is bound to be full of sun (please man, no more rain!!!!!) and sweat. I hadn't booked for check-in baggage, so I'm hoping that this trip would be a light one, since I have never ever gone on any trip without shitloads of clothing to spare. I don't know yet, I probably might change my mind and get check-in afterall just in case. I'm fickle just like that. -shrugs-

Anyway, obviously my wardrobe hasn't got the full set of load as posted. I wish, but I really can't be bothered to spend hundreds on a pair of shorts or swimwear. The important thing is you get the idea of it, and settle for alternatives, get it? Oh but the We Are Handsome bikinis are pretty cool though. Santa what do you say, mm?(furiously batting eyelashes) And if possible, please zap away my talking belly too, thank you sir.

Ah, such mad love for these girls.. oh I mean angels.

(PS: Picture quality looks so awesome. So the question strikes again, stick to ol' Apple, or make a switch to Samsung S3?)

Monday, 10 December 2012

Hi guys, been a lack of updates lately. I've been busy, lazy and haven't been shooting pictures so there. I'll just lay out the gist of recent happenings.

1. Sunday flea markets, cause I'm fast becoming poorer than I already am with my rising expenditures in everything and anything.

2. Dental appointments, as you may (or not) notice in the picture, following up to my braces set up. Yes, I finally took the plunge (back to topic of rising expenditures, get it now?) and committed myself to a two-year relationship to being a full-fledged metal mouth. The first week was such a bitch of pain after my extraction (I am now 4 teeth lesser again after 4 wisdom teeth gone from last year) cause they had these annoying rubber bands stuck in between the teeth to space them out. Ugh, bitch. Don't ask me why I never thought of it earlier or why do I need them (apparently half the world disregards my need for braces yada yada), its just a matter of me knowing now and going for it. And yes, I thought about it long and through, and I do what I want. I'm a woman for pain to gain. So there you go guys, say hi to metal mouth. -waves!!-

3. On the day that I had my braces done, I managed to also squeeze in a mani-pedi appointment, and when I got home I did my hair. I haven't done self-dyes in ages, and was kind of flustered as I tried to juggle it through while at the same time catching up on my Korean drama. The color turned out more blackish than I thought, when I bought the pack and it stated dark brown. Mm what the hell. But I'm sure my stylist is gonna bite at me for this. Whooopsy. So yeah see? I'm a busy bimbo.

4. The mother's birthday, okay so the day ended up a blurry buzz cause I woke up late (hey, I had a really insane early start the day before alright) and spent a long time chewing immensely slow on soft fruit whilst getting used to the steel in my mouth. Anyway, my sisters and I decided to bake a cake this year for my mom's birthday. Thankfully, the youngest has had some previous practice, so naturally she was put to take charge...while I did the paying for ingredients. Well okay, I did weigh out some portions and did some mixtures, not a total free rider. And I'm proud to say that the red velvet cake turned out pretty well, tasty in fact if I might add. For once, I'd bother with a second helping cause it was that good. And yes, the Nutella did help a lot too. Since I could barely chew anything, I scrapped the idea of dinner making (total lack of time anyway) and treated the fam to Canton Paradise dim sum instead (no, I didn't get to eat the roasted honey pork or custard buns -wails-).

5. Packing for Japan, cause this bitch here tends to bring her whole closet anywhere she goes. I'm picky and insistent like that, so sue me. Yes, I have a hard time choosing outfits, and with this round's trip consisting of so much winter wear, frankly speaking I'm really quite at a loss here on how to pack my luggage. With 1 shearling, 2 wool, and 1 fur coat to squeeze, my luggage is already barely keeping them in even with them jam-packed in compressor bags. And we haven't moved on to inner wears yet. Oh woes.

So there, I'm been a busy lazy girl. Thankfully, no Christmas shopping this year cause apparently all the friends are so busy with boyfriends and can't be bothered about anyone else, so all the more for me kiddos. Plus Japan has literally squeezed me dry. Oh, but its finally happening next week. For real. Oh yeah, mama's coming.

Shirt - Cotton On // Leather Jacket - Taobao // Pants - Topshop

As the title suggests, it's pretty evident that I've been living in this jacket like its, well, second skin. Words cannot describe my love and need for it. The smooth buttery texture, and too-cool-for-school quilted shoulders are just perfect for the laid back style in me. I do love my layers but Singapore is just too hot and humid to allow that, so this outer addition is just right when I need that extra oomph in an outfit. The best bit, it's quite a steal given the prices charged for a good quality leather piece these days. J'adore.
