King Midas’ ice cream

Last October we visited Kanazawa, and one of the things that I wanted to do before we left was eat their gold-leaf soft-serve ice cream! Partly for the hell of it, but also because WHAT DOES GOLD TASTE LIKE? was the predominate question upon my mind. Although I failed to accomplish my mission last year…

Nagoya – Gifu – Toyama – Tateyama – Kanazawa lookbook  4/2017

We took a 5-day tour from the 12-16th April through Japan. Our driver was Telada-san and he had more stamina than the rest of us. The bus began at Nagoya and travelled through Seki, Gifu, Nanao, Tateyama, Toyama, Takaoka, Kanazawa, Shirakawa, and Hida. The weather was cold but perfect! The cherry blossoms had opened in…

vlog : Åland, Pure, family and Cantonese cuisine

What I did this Saturday (sorry, I realized that the date is wrong). We went to Causeway Bay for Cantonese dim sum and tea (known as 喝茶 “yum cha”) at Lee Theatre, then we shopped at a Korean store called Åland and did fitness at Pure. Then my grandma called, so we went to Tseung…

vlog: Mid-Levels, Bun Xuong Nuong & M&S Food

Last Sunday my mom and I went to the Mid-Levels, located in Central District in Hong Kong to spend my first fully relaxing weekend in weeks. On Saturday, I thought it was the end of the weekend because I’m so used to having 1-day weekends! The Mid-Levels is most well-known for the escalator. There is…

Sydney lookbook 

There was a really great bohemian vibe around Sydney; lots of flowing cutout dresses, floral and tribal prints, and even shirts embroidered with shells! I left feeling extremely inspired. Although I only brought a few shirts and bottoms, planning outfits beforehand was key to packing for the pre-summer weather and an easy way to reuse…

Sydney 15-25/12 : food

Let me now sincerely apologise for mocking people who take photos of their food; it’s the perfect way to capture the memory of a dish’s appearance, a way to ‘save it for later’ and droool all over the photo album. Since the produce is so fresh in Sydney, it would be treacherous not to eat out. During…

Lhasa : Tibet 2016

This week I had the amazing opportunity to visit Tibet with a group of people from my school for our annual Challenge Week. It was an incredible experience full of spirituality, politics, colour and immersion into the local culture, and I have the pictures to prove it.  Lhasa was an incredibly unique place to visit….

50s Denim Dress

I found this denim dress with a seriously 1950s silhouette at Zara and nearly cried; it’s so cool and has this vintage-y look that I love. It’s got a semi-fitted bodice, full knee-length skirt, silver snap buttons, and kind of looks like something that a Californian gold rush miner might’ve worn in the 20th century. Only made…

Tokyo 10/2016 Lookbook

Last week I went away with my family to Tokyo for midterm break. The weather was nice and cool; perfect to whip out the quintessential military jacket.  Outfit 1:  My uncle found this jacket for me from JCrew at the sales and I love the golden hardware details! It went really nicely with my Mango…

lace sans feminine

My mom “lent” me this vintage Equipment shirt (a nod to her old days as flight attendant). The pastel colours at first seemed questionable, but paired with darker colours and slouchier pants the lace contrasts elegantly and keeps the outfit from straying over to pyjama-zone. Jacket: Lauren by Ralph Lauren Shirt: vintage Equipment Sweatpants: Uniqlo…

people ʎɥdɐɹƃoʇoɥd

here are some photos that I took for the second round of my school’s photography competition. for some reason they keep picking the the 1 out of 3 photos that I submit that I personally feel slightly iffy about, but at least that means I’m still in! To be honest, what I feel the most…

Paris

When everybody of importance leaves Paris for NYFW, that’s when I hit the streets of Paris. (No wonder the restaurants and attractions were markedly less crowded) I spent my Chinese New Year in Paris. We stayed at the Hotel Scribe on 1 Rue Scribe in the Opera neighborhood, just a 2 minute walk away from Boulevard…
