16 Celcius :)

Please don't come, winter! I beg of you!
Sigh. As much as I'd love the weather to stay cool forever, I think I'd be even more worried if winter really doesn't ever come. Global warming is such a quick-moving beast, it's scary.
I've become much of a poser as of late huh? Okay, I've always been a bit of a poser..just not publicly. This is fun though. It's nice when you get exactly the pictures you wanted, while unnecessarily documenting what you wore. Anyway, my readership has been dwindling so it's mostly for my eyes! Quite a relief :)
I'm really enjoying so far. is super exclusive and I feel so rejected that I still haven't gotten an invite despite registering ages ago. Hmph! I don't need you, Lookbook!

"You are past-orientated."
That's how a personality test once described me. And it hit the nail right on the head. I am indeed someone who looks back on the past a lot. Not in regret, but in deep gratitude and joy.
I'm a walking paradox I think. I want to move forward so badly because I have all these hopes and dreams that I'm aiming for yet at the same time, I want to be a little girl again, hopping about frivolously without a care in the world. I love every memory I had as a child growing up. Some are especially distinct, some not so much. I wish I could be Peter Pan sometimes. But then again, where's the fun in never growing up? See, I am a paradox.
University life (student life, technically!) is about to end for me in a mere 9 weeks, give or take. And then what? Every 'next step' prior to this has always been so certain, so straight-forward. Kindergarten, primary school, secondary school, college and then uni. Voila. Not much thought necessary. I already have my goals engraved deeply into my mind. The pathway to those goals however, I'm not so sure. I guess it's just something I'll work out along the way. It's always comforting to know that He is there though. In every decision, in every circumstance, there is no need for fear. (just ample trust!)
I'm excited for what's ahead. I really am. Somewhere deep down, I know I have all the makings of a successful woman. Charisma, wisdom, independence. All just waiting to be honed to their full potential.
So let's see where my parodoxical feet take me.

I am Coco Channel stuck in the body of Adam Smith.
Only I am not even close to being half as cool as Coco herself. And for those of you who don't know, Adam Smith was an economist.

I Be Gangsta'

Dress (worn under): thrifted; cardigan: Forever 21; belt: mom's; shoes: Duchess; handbag: Guess.

In honour of the most beautiful woman I know,

I asked her for sexy/pouty...she gave me gangsta.

And then I asked her for gangsta and she gave me....this.
HAHA. This is how my mother poses with her new "wayfarers".


It feels lonely here now that my parents have left. I miss their silly quirks and everything else adorable about them :)

Sometimes, I think it's best to just not visit me at all.

On a side note! I dreamt that I was at my graduation ceremony..and it was an extremely disorganised one. It was my turn to go up to collect my cert, but I realised that I didn't have my gown on because my dad was parading around in it! What a disaster.

Random much?

3 More Inches

Went to DFO with my parents for some guilt-free shopping. (Win!) Lovely weather aye, mate?!
I reckon my maxi adds at least 3 inches to my height. (Double win!)


Maxi; thrifted at Camberwell. Bunny bag; loan from sis-in-law. I wish I didn't have to wear those flip-flops and that I had some accessories on. But that's how it is when you're temporarily living out of your suitcase :)
Always had an interest in doing outfit posts on my blog but for some reason I never got to it. Part shy, part lazy. And part "noone-to-take-photos-for-me". But maybe I'll do it more from now on. *Steal brother's tripod*

Mommy and Daddy's Girl. So What?!

I'm lovin' my weekend! Am at my brother's place in Berwick, with my parents who are visiting :) I love having them around to chum-chum (Don't ask me what that means. I don't really know either, I just made it up but I think it sounds apt and filled with meaning. Ironically) with.



Took some shots around my brother's. I can't wait to decorate my own house in the future! I hope I have enough funds to realise all these ideas I have. One thing I'm definitely going to need, a 'creativity room'. A room I can escape to, that I can design however I like. Where I can start projects...and end them after I get bored. Yes yes, that is a must :)

Went about town of course. HarHar at my dad's eyes.



Barbeque at Shoya. Yums. Yet another reason why it's awesome having your folk around. Say buh-bye to sucky home-cooked food!

Bunny FTW!

In my post here, I placed in an entry for a contest by

And I've won, yay! :)
They nominated the top 5 blogs, and asked people to vote. I don't know why it turned into a poll, but oh well!
I only got 2nd highest amount of votes though (much thanks to all my buddies whom I bugged online!) but I'm glad they decided to reward me :) Never really joined blog contests before..felt a bit someone with too much time on their hands. (or rather, too high a provision on procrastination)
But anyway! Contests are awesome...if you win.

Not entirely sure what I've won yet though. RM150 shopping spree or something. Bwahaha. Here's hoping it's a good one :)
My words are so disjointed. I'm sleepy. ZzZz.

Can obviously see who my supporters were :) Thanks heaps guys!

Easter Bunny Time

Been up to heaps (except studying) this Easter! Hence the disappearance :)

First it was Easter Camp at Coonawarra Farm Resort. Beautiful beautiful. The place was 4 hours away so we had a nice bonding bus ride trip together, us Claytonites. Getting reception at the place was a pain though. Living without my phone for 4 days was rather tough. And apparently so too for everyone else who was lifting their handphones to the sky while walking around, in hope of just that single bar of reception. I, obviously, was one of them. But it's okay. It's good to get away from all those distractions sometimes, especially when camp is a time to focus on God.
Although, with enough searching (and the right handphone), I managed to find the perfect spot with 3 bars! *shy*

Brought my bear-bear hoodie with me. Hardly ever wear it around 'cos I feel a bit embarrassed. These are the things you buy in Korea (or any other holiday spot for that matter) because the girls looked cute in them and you think you would too...and then you end up wondering when you'd ever wear it.

Went canoeing! Paid only AUD 1.20 after dividing the cost by all of us! Joy :)

OCF Clayton. Sort of. There was an intruder...who obviously didn't know he was intruding..judging by his tall and proud stance. Find him on the right! Lawl.

OCF Victoria :)
And then I met Yuen Yen for a little shopping in the city. And Mei Lin came down! So Chingz, Sonia, Lin and I got a reunion together after over a year.

I like this modelesque looking shot of Lin :)

AND THEN! Lin and I went to Camberwell and it was DA BOMB. I got 2 gorgeous scarfs for AUD1 each! A Supre dress for AUD2, a pair of shoes for AUD2.50, and the zebra maxi for AUD22 (cos this one's brand new). I love ALL my buys! Hearts :)

Got a cardi from Friends of Couture for only AUD20! Super cute poodle prints :) This one's not from Camberwell though.
Had a good Easter! As you can tell from the photos.
On a side note, my parents are coming down on Friday! Joy!
Ps: Is anyone else having problem with Blogspot's stupid photo uploader?! IT'S super annoying! Doesn't allow to me blog with photos and words like it used to! @#$^#$%@$
