Versatile Blogger Award!

look what i've found when i searched through the comments on my blog!
another award? i am a super happy girl :)
thank you so much to Joelle Regh from My Passion is Fashion who have chosen this blog as one of the winners. i truly appreciate it..

Definition of the Versatile Blogger Award:

A mutual admiration society where bloggers recognize their peers for writing quality blogs that touched them in some way. The VBAs honor the blogger rather than specific posts. It’s a chance for bloggers to pat themselves on the back like the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences does with the Oscars. Until someone starts giving out Blogscars, the VBAs will have to suffice.

Here are the rules when selected for the Versatile Blogger Award:

- Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
- Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy.
- Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. (blogging for less than 2 years)
- Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award.
- Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

and...another 7 random things about myself:
1. before i die, i have to see Adele, The Script, Lifehouse and Foster The People (!!!)
2. i was one of straight As students back in school who is fed up of books and now doesn't like those 'book-smart' people but prefer 'street-smart' people instead...and that's exactly why i didn't continue to a proper degree in education.. and i think it's one of the best decisions i've ever made :)
3. weird - i often dream about (male) celebrities *blushes*, i swear i'm not a perv! =,=
5. i am a lousy (alco) drinker. 2 shots and i'm done (ugh!)
6. i can sing and dance..pretty well :) (or at least i think so..hehe)
7. i am now in the process of making one of my dreams come true. it should be settled soon, hopefully! :) i'll definitely make a post about it. :)

my 15 nominees are (in no particular order):

off the race.

due to the moslems big day, it is holiday season here!
honestly i've been in 'holiday' since the beginning of the year. and i have a feeling that it will continue until 2012 ends >.<
well..i'm not proud because of my unemployment, but definitely happy, LOL.
staying in a third world country, everyday indeed feels like holiday.
it's like i'm off the hectic race. and i think my bf is secretly enjoying as well now and forgetting about hardwork for money for a while, which is good! he's finally happy again :D
that is why we can go out touring the city we live in almost everyday, and take these random outfit photos, haha..
anyway, hope you enjoy them!
i love these shorts!

the first thing that caught my eyes from this house was the beautiful white fences that were contrasting the red brick walls... on my mind, i thought "now THAT is my kind of house."
though, i would make the walls and fences much lower than this one, and the whole house much much smaller (when there comes the time when i could afford to buy my own house, hehe..), so it would look much livelier and less soul-less :)

i do believe that our house, our appearances, our clothes, and/or even our taste in music could really define and represent our true-selves to the community..they somehow show who we really are to people.

i am not a big fan of huge houses (although i am definitely not against it), but sometimes they could look so lonely. i do think people nowadays build their fences and brick-walls so high as if they want others to stay away from them.
the bigger the house, the less connection it has to the outer world.

and sadly, many of these huge houses are not very THAT is what i definitely don't like.
and i find it ironic when the riches build their houses as big as castles when they barely stay at home and always being too busy digging fortunes to make another gigantic at the end, their maids are the only people you could find living in their houses.

well, i often say to myself that i DO NOT want that kind of life.
i want not just a house, but a home.
i wouldn't mind a tiny house with a big life in it, not the other way around :)
i want a house that is openly and warmly welcoming any guest (but this doesn't include burglars though :P)
but fortunately, there are still a lot of big houses that actually have more life with its family in it...and i consider that as a truly blessing :)

spot the photographer! :P

blush tones

how have you been, lovelies?
it's FRIDAY already! oh..crazy how the time flies. especially when you spend them with good friends, fun family and *cough* adorable bf? :P
feels like each day passes in a blink of an eye.
so since everyone can smell the weekend already, i thought of posting something blossoming to cheer up the mood!
here we are wearing (accidentally) matching shades of colors. :)

pinkish and peachy colors...i automatically think of blush tones when i see my whole outfit.
i love how light and flowy both the top and the skort. make me feel happy :D

there's a zipper (which is actually the main accent) attached vertically on the back part of my top. but too bad i didn't take a photo of it =,=
as for the skort, i give huge credit for my bf who thoughtfully bought it for me (as well as many other things). such a pretty floral print! he really knows my taste :)

anyway, have a lovely, flowery and happy weekend people!

my bf | plain white tee: JayJays, black watch: Fossil, red pants: Industrie, black leather sneakers: Lacoste.

when it comes to traveling, the most important thing which is also the most annoying at the same time for me is packing.
packing is quite an art for me, it's easy yet difficult at the same time.
how to maximize the use of the very minimum space..
when traveling, the smaller the luggage the better for me. especially for a girl with a petite figure like myself, it's definitely not an option to carry a huge luggage around. i look extremely funny with a giant luggage! (it literally could fit my body in) xP
that's why, i have to make sure that all the things that i bring are the most important/needed ones, so that they can fit into my tiny luggage :)

as for clothes, i choose to bring the most comfortable ones yet they have to be quite stylish.
and for the Singapore trip a couple weeks ago, i brought really light & small pieces of clothes. for colours, i picked black and white (well, they're the best colours combination anyway ;) )
denim and cotton tees are also a must!
so there i was...with minimalistic style :)

fyi, with these simple clothes, at the end i could fit 2 pairs of shoes (with a box!), a huge hairdryer, hair straightener, accessories, make up pouch, and some shopping bags when i return home :)

plain white tee: JayJays, faux leather skirt: Supre, black leather bag: Charles & Keith, zebra flats: The Little Things She Needs, leather bangle: Hermes, white-silver watch: DKNY

meet St. Mary

one of the best places for a catholic to go is st. Mary's cave. located uphill, we took around an hour to get here. this place is called Karmel. the cave is gorgeous!
this is the most peaceful place for us catholic to do our 'heavy praying' in my town. people can pray for hours here without any disturbance.

but i did a quick pray instead, and sneaked out for snapping some outfit photos...couldn't help it! :P
i am so sorry Mother Mary, next time i'll be more serious in praying  =,=
thanks to my bf who also definitely couldn't stand praying for a long time and decided to be my partner in crime..snapping photos of me, lol.

btw, do you like my prints? my bf bought it for's a rare case, lol.
