HEY HEY! So I’m back in Singapore! It doesn’t matter how long I’ve been away from home – once I plonk my ass on the couch in front of the TV, it’s really as if I’ve never left. It has been an interesting summer. I visited two places I’ve never been to before (Berlin & Göteborg), but unfortunately no pictures until I manage to extricate them from my now-defunct hard drive.
I packed surprisingly lean for this trip. Half of my suitcase was filled with things for friends and family and the other half with T-shirts and sweat shorts. There’s even a pair of trainers (!!!) which I ambitiously thought I’d put to use somehow. Seeing my pot belly below though, maybe I should really go out for a run or two.
Manage to get this dress from Topshop on sale. I absolutely abhor sale shopping. It’s not that I’m too snooty to score a discount. It’s just that whenever there is a “sale” sign anywhere in the shop, it seems to bring out the animalistic instinct in shoppers. Everyone assumes that they have free reign to throw whatever they want on the ground and rearrange whole sections entirely. I think I would have an easier time sorting through the belongings of a hoarder, than to find anything I want during a sale. Sale shopping is like a timed challenge to me: how many items can I find that I like before my patience and my sanity begin to frizzle?
My eyeliner even matched my bag that day – I had a pink eyeliner (maybelline hyper glossy liner in hot pink) on over my usual liner.
After what is possibly the lengthiest winter in the history of recent memory, good weather has finally decided to grace us. I think I am getting too accustomed to the climate here though – it’s only 19℃ here and I am already sweating like Tyra Banks wearing a fat suit in July. May lord God and also Jesus save my soul when the height of summer actually arrives. I think I will be surviving on a steady diet of soda and ice cream.
I have noticed that I talk about the weather practically in every post. I can’t decide if I am turning British, or if the weather is truly the most interesting aspect of my appallingly boring life. Now that school’s out, all my days are spent watching marathons of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

It’s always lovely when the weather decides to cooperate for once! I bought this Zara dress when I was still in London, but didn’t have a chance to wear it till recently. I should have worn it sooner because I can hardly squeeze into it now that I’ve gained so much weight from Singaporean food.
I love the lace details on the back! Unfortunately it makes choosing the right underwear a nightmare.

Venetia came over and bummed around with us that day. It was an awesome coincidence that she brought her Givenchy-inspired hat along! It’s ridiculous how polished she looks next to me.
Attended the NARS launch at ArtScience Museum a few days back. It’s really great to see that Singapore is starting to have more and more museums! If only we have one for fashion or Natural History.
The day was brutally hot – notice how there isn’t even a single cloud in the sky. I kind of give a condescending snort whenever someone talks about how hot it is back in London. The weather here has made me thankful of my skin which tans easily but never burns.
This pair of Elizabeth & James wedges (c/o Shopbop) is seriously my most comfortable pair of heels. I can literally last the whole day in them without the slightest bit of discomfort.
I really like the detail on the side of this dress. Sometimes all you need is one thing to spice up the entire outfit.
P.S. You may have already noticed this in our previous posts, but for those who don’t: you can now mouse over some of our pictures for something extra.

Lastly, we wish all of you selemat hari raya aildilfitri! May you spend it joyfully with your loved ones.
There’s nothing special about the weather in Singapore. It’s just hot and humid. This particular day was no escape from the dreary heat. We had to photoshop sweat beads from our face (true story).
Bad idea wearing a jacket here, but I just wanted to wear my new harness out. I suppose it’s relevant (?) to the location since we’re near a Saddle Club (actually no it’s kinda irrelevant). Too bad horses don’t run free here or I’d taken photos of some. I guess they’re all chillin in the stables, away from the heat.
I love my skirt, but sometimes I think it is not worth the trouble buying from The Scarlet room. They’ve too many orders on their hand and their back orders take forever to fulfill. They’re not very prompt with my tracking numbers either. Moreover, they emailed the wrong tracking number which caused plenty of confusion.
Also, my lot of Etsy purchases have came in!
