Kew Gardens

Here are some photos I took no more than two weeks ago. It feels like something from a passing dream – I’ve dug myself into the mud and hit a treasure box of IB and university deadlines. I’m also slightly panicking about the disappearance of my childhood!! Oh well, I’ve got to start paying rent…

L is for LonDON LookBOOK

Here are some outfits for school. …but because my school has a “rigorously monitored” (as they like to say) uniform policy, so instead I wore them to my styling and making course this summer at Central!! Saint!!! Martins!!!! in King’s Cross London. I’ll be posting a review of my experience later, so stay tuned and…

A Tourist’s Real Account: Thievery at Paddington Station

This is an account of what really happened to us a week ago, and we’d firstly like to thank the British Transport Police at Paddington for their compassion and commendable effort in helping a panicking family on holiday! In the morning, my parents and I were sitting in the Lawn at Paddington Station eating breakfast…

My First Time in a Hong Kong Pawnshop

Yesterday I went into a pawnshop. Not to actually swap anything off for money, but since I’ve seen so many around Hong Kong and never went inside my grandma, mom, and I went inside to take a look. The shop that we went to was on the corner of Yu Chau Street in Sham Shui…

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…
