In His Words, We Follow

R I P  
Abduraman Wahid, former 4th president of Indonesia who passed away yesterday, 18:45.
He was 69 years old.

(How it sounds ridiculously ironic with Tiger JK's 8:45, his in memoriam time)

And today,
it is his last presence in flesh before returning back to dust, just buried, and just like Easter was and always is, it rained, it still is raining outside my window.

When he was reported (well, my mom was watching the full report downstairs since early dawn) 1PM they would have the final prayers and all and would be buried, around an hour later the skies were dark and it poured with gushes of cold wind.
I do think it was from him, from above, also giving a sign that his soul has returned home safely in heaven and giving his last blessing to his family and the land of Indonesia (or West Java).

How he was our hero in Indonesia for us Chinese, now some of us pay back a tribute.

No matter where he is or who we are, we would always remember him, the person who has embraced us all regardless of our race decendants and a great leader who soughts for the best with critical thoughts and a down-to-earth person, a politician who truly wants peace than position, like most other Indonesian politicians are to get easy money.

It is said that Indonesia has approx. 220 million people, and 140 million follows him. How reckless his comments sounds, it has always had been a guidance for half of the population in the nation.

Also another prayer goes to Frans Seda, former deputy (somewhere I've forgotten) as he also RIP this morning.

Last thoughts and wishes for this year to close this chapter, and a new one awaits tonight...

I would just catch KBS World, enjoy the chilly weather and sleep afterwards.


All I NEED for Christmas...


'Tis the jolly good season to stuff ourselves with heartwarming food and just to relax and be a potato couch. But that's only th 50% of the happiness, the rest comes from materialistic needs in life!

The problem is, I do really NEED it. So, anyone willing to give in your plastic fantastic ultraslim card for the sake of everyone's happiness this season?

It made me from being lost netizen to a regular in two days. Just. Nothing else!


Okay, so I've got a pair yesterday, in need for my upcoming winter trip, but this is NOT to be missed.
Givency "Anaconda" studs and stars embellished peep-toe booties, perfect for the season!
Although the snakeskin gives ++++++++++++ points ( did I tell you how snakeskin is my favorite, patterns nor the real since everyone uses leopard ) I don't really care about that. I want my bottom rear shining! :)
However, 810 pounds is not being friendly. Or because of the quality.


This is cute! Not to mention the GREEN color they have which is RAD! No brand name as well on the sides, it's just perfect I won't have to paint over "Audio Technica" on the side...
Urban Ears, $68, at fredflare.com
(I know, it's quite a rip-off here...)


I ordered it and after two weeks it's not done?
Brought it to a knit wear shop.
Grrrrrrr. I didn't even get to order beanie! :(


Nah, not the Barbie I'm interested at, it's the ahdorable miniature shoes which I like it better that way rather for myself, especiaaaaaally the one silky smooth cat woman's wearing... are those Rodarte spikes? Forgive me if I'm wrong from which house it is but the resemblance must be those spikey heels last time!
from Shoe wawa

I do hope a package like before would await me at home when I return or before I leave, since I need it for the trip!


Days Left to Japan: 6 ! ! !
Watching to: Idol Maknae Rebellion with SHINee in it!


Going, going, away

If you guys knew who I really am would know I would be a missing-nin in the virtual world of clicks, however the presence does not interfere with the yin-yang tranquility of that world.

Over exerting philosophical?

I've been watching ninja stuff yeah, Ninja Assassin the movie. Refer to Ms. Foo's (if you were to understand) synopsis, I would say the same without wasting space here and make you guys bored. Rain, as Raizo, was hilarious in his lines (who ever wrote those lines it's soooooooo gushy cheesy tingles to your spine makes me giggle like a weird kid) but MBLAQ who? I've forgotten mian! member as young Raizo with shaved head... with zoomed in kiss scene...
*tossing a candy between boring anecdotes*


note: you have to click on the image to see a bright !@#($*UJ@#(*$ surprise!
Miss Foo

So these past TWO WEEKS (ZOMGGG HAS IT REALLY BEEN THAT LONG I'VE WASTED MY LIFE DOING NOTHING AND REALLY GETTING BEATEN UP WITH BOREDOM) minus two days had its ups and downs and a few things has put my face in glee!

Starting with the downs... (and the long boring rants tagging along with it)
    Apart from the recent wisdom tooth one on the right removal operation which includes SCRAPING of my gum, DRILLING and cutting my tooth (I thought it was the jawbones which doctor's daughter told me) taking it out then STITCHING my gums back into place shaped like a half pocket from the top to the bottom...
        Continuing on to the lifeless hands I have, I cannot just sit down and do nothing I'm wasting my life! The bad part about college is after one week of recharging which we did seriously need, all thinking parts of the body had been switched off automatically and slowly repairing the membranes and nucleuses to be bridged together again after the loss of millions of cells in the works of ASSesment.
Now it's just waiting for the moment my holiday allowance to finish, 11 January to return and serve the prison, 8th of January in the new year to prep myself and returning back to Singapore.

Good thing my head has drifted away in the downs, let's start with the up, uP, UP!

Since I am torned between two cities, I return to the capital city every week and last Friday I had come to meet fellow mates Mozzzzarella and Miss Foo and did a marathon of mouth-spitting (read: nonstop talking) about this and that, and ESP. THAT.

Did I tell you guys how I love packages and mails? SNAIL MAILS, not electronic mails, bless you for thinking of spamming my inbox.

Well, this one was unexpected, it wasn't the no. 1 blinking on my head that it was to come, and what convenience it arrived when I arrived! (I gave my capital city address)

*a big package! Wonder where it's from...*


*The exquisite Japanese tea set I won! Yay yay yay yay I'm a tea person. Or my household is so it wouldn't hurt to have another set of tea and make a simple tea ceremony :P*

But what has shattered my heart in pieces (with the feeling of the roller coaster going downwards, that feeling where your heart is somewhat caught up, brought up, fly up, something like that) is this...

After it has flew a long journey away
Does it have to be a nay
To see a pitiful scene!

I didn't take a shot of the color, but the cups are gorgeous with the soft pastel pink purplish color.

As a scuker for all Japanese, I even cherish the stuffing which was newspaper (thought to be Japanese but it's conducted in English!) and apparently a story about the stake on Singapore's physical appearance.

I'm now trying to make an offer if I were to be in Japan is it easier to resend a pot. =X  The stuff hails from GoodsFromJapan.com where they've got the cultural traditional things Japan has to share, authentic Japanese as well! I would also re-open to jot down places I need to visit in Tokyo on my own! Get lost on subways, experience the Harajuku pressure of needing to dress up!

I haven't reinvented my wardrobe yet. I still need to tie-dye! Oh no! Much patience is greatly horrifically eneded to add sequins like Doo.Ri/Miu Miu's stockings...
Talking about clothes inventory, here's what I got from my mom under the X'mas tree and I can't wait longer after a few days of shaking it and it explains the stone-like sound clunk clunk clunk!

It's an ultra chunky, not to mention heavy necklace, absolute exquisiteness with the Buddha face big charm onto it. I used it as a headband for now since I could not find a way to extend so i could wear...Definitely not the daily accessories I see, a definite object I'll use for future fashion spread projects!
And this was last summer's project, the images FINALLY taken from my mom's camera... *ripping and scratching jeans*

*Edited using a humble Adobe Photoshop Elements 2, the only photo editor in my granpa desktop. Plus my hair was still in good shape I loike!*

More coming after the trip on DIY successful this season's greets!

Last Death Notes to all:

ANYONE LIVING IN THE STATES, PLEASE GET MY SOME RODARTE x TARGET FROCKS, not to mention the honorable A-list guest would be noneother than Tavi... also saw the Spring '09 Rodarte dress at Bebe...
"The lowest price in the line is $9.99, for knee-highs, and reaches to $79.99, for a leopard-print jacket.
Rodarte's Kate and Laura Mulleavy for a 55-piece line"
qtd. from Fab Sugar's article about it

Oto-san no ani, Osaka ni 22-23/12 kimasu! Mata aimashouka?

FTISLAND Primadonnas in Singapore get lots of pictures allright! Not forgetting BEG aswell with hips swaying!

And after a green presence, whutderrfakq! will miss you too with a new look. Hopefully. WTF PSP game inspired. :)

Days to Japan: 7!!!!!!!!

Listening to: Tohoshinki's Heart, Mind, Soul album. Old times :)


And the results are as follows...


this morning, I got and saw my assessment grades. I was surprised by it!


Not bad to start and at least I have passed along with Ashley, Kasey, and Miya to FC!

Ah, a quick upload on the final layout: what do you think compared to the real layout?
"Is this your reference page?"
"oh no no it's our page"

with one of the lecturer in grading the final FC presentation... not Daryl or Ginette... I forgot...

But I knew the write-up should be linked to the model, I've asked my hopeless teammates that should we (well, I, to be precise) do the write up like a feature, because this regards to the senior model we use, and Ilana's mom a jewelry designer herself, so I had the idea to introduce the page of a personal feature product, where in the story she's the one who has all those sunglasses and want to show off.

"oh no not necessary" is the only response. in the end i did it all. tiring to recap what had happened with that ridiculous noontime (however you regard it as dawn time) attitude, sure bring it on to the police what, i'll be arrested for 5 hours as a juvenile delinquent?
h-e-l-l-o-o-o we're all still underage. or you're probably officially a year older hence by month. but that doesn't mean you're mature.

Typography name mash-up project, using all the alphabets in our name to design a logo.

Would I be ready next year, to learn graphic design skills x advertising skills?
It's the bore and it demands scrutinizing accuracy and competent neatness.

I like what I see! Well, sorta. Can't be competitive in the new class either, full of super artsy fartsy director brainers that's too good too cool for school already.


70%: CCS essay!
50-65%: CCS presentation (if i remember correctly)
45%: textiles! i've improved, at least my lecturer knows I did try!
50%: VP Digital (odoroku!)
66%: FM presentation
50%? good: pattern drafting (hooray! sudden increase!)

//hmm...wadelse i think that's it.//

Which of the five, you shall ask for specialism?
journalism, styling, adverstising, photography, art director

 hmmm, currently i do not know the pathway i want but, later in the future i would definitely know.

arrrrghhhhhhhhhhhhh holiday results are such a turnover though.
Gaining kilos is NOT a good effect while it should be more exersizing rather than gaining in the holidays.

then what made me tick off today is because my desktop back home seems to always pop out technical problems, this time my parents' can't hear me through skype, i've waited the whole night fighting off my snooze and hunger, and in the end I grabbed big bites of wholemeal bread and scoops of chunky Skippy, and I wasn't that sleepy anymore, and thus since I was irritated by the calls, hung up and immediately rang back, it's absolute annoying with the ringing voice. When I came back from the toilet I saw the message "I dont know whats happening mom says bye2" wahlau I just got so emotional I ATE ALREADY LIKE 300+ CALORIES because of waiting! Then i shouldn't have just slept my hunger which i planned to but my mind keeps telling me to eat, so I went to my fridge and gave up, looking at the leftover bread pack and Skippy.


Just pissed.

wanted to show the images of the leather bag and go jane shoes and jacket.


a bad way to end the day. start the day. whatevs. still peeved.



 How long have I been missing in your window screens?
  I have no idea. Fashion studies has taken control my time.

But I'm now alive again, right after submissions. SATURDAY 28th I CANNOT WAAAAAITTTT TO REACH HOME AND STUFF MYSELF AGAIN (to satisfy the dragon inside my stomach currently) safely and sound and list all the things I gotta do...

1st week: Nihon Noryoku Shiken motto benkyou!
2nd week: (hope to get in the exhibition) LOMONESIA exhibitionist
3-4th week: Off to Japan and hope to roam around Tokyo city for a day like a lost puppy
5-6th week: My teeth operation?And send myself back to Singapore.

To prep things up for the 3-4th week...
Absolute research on the Japanese street style scene, confessing that I'm trying over exceedingly dress to impress at least for this travel's photos (very ambitious, thank you)

All images were taken from the best Japanese street style bible at Fashion Snap complete with detailed zoom accessories, fully sided. I can't get enough of them tbqh.

                                                                                                                                      full length shots


DIY tights color mixing inspiration! Only at We Love Colors...
(I really want the basic patterned tights and thigh-high striped in a variety which totals about US $70 when I checked out. Oh dear. Rp 700,000 for 7 tights. Yikes!
あのタイツわとひざうえといろーいろ色ひざうえline patterned わかいたい!)

oh ooh oooh (well believe it or not I've typed this out 3-4 times due to sudden Mozilla crash and other stupid technological reasons I've clicked save as draft but pictures appear but not this writing was totally peeved and is still) the patterns, textures, solid color clashing, and drapery...

DIY on the accessories (bracelet, necklace, trinkets, badges, anything to add the party!), Japanese fabric small vest plan, more Japanese fabric hunting, more pattern drafting cutting and sewing, tie-dye the white socks (planned since that summer project) and get more secondhand treasures!

aand wa-wa-wa-wa-iit are those audio-technica? I'm in need of big headphones to rock on the Harajuku streets and it was told that even in Akihabara electronics are still exp, better to get it here//ALSO looking at audio-chi's black-purple/pink dotted...
i wanted a all white headphone, circle, that covers the whole ear totally outside (usually the upside down egg shape would suit best but it doesn't look as nice as circle) or those 2NE1/G-D headphones...

 but, I'll leave the decision to you guys PPMIS you guys choose it's your late late gift for my 17th year on earth celebration... :D
(it's gettin' late here i wannit before christmas trip! XD)

I spent $300 on this whim. It was a given.

I've totally forgotten about this high street store so much better than Topshop and its likes due to high demand in Desigual and since this year's collection had been a bore (where high street copies the runway) so we're now left with die-hard sharp shoulders or shoulder-innovations fad however something me like too... sigh...


 *Leather slouch bag, the moment I had rested its bag on my shoulders, I couldn't let it go, it drops just nice. TOO nice. MOOMMMM please bring this to the bag maker now! Hope it would have the same quality durability :)*

even more in my list: grey long-sleeved puffy dress (reminds me of my lecturer), Go Jane cheap boots, and whatever I'll see downtown tomorrow . . . . . . . . . . . -whoooops-


 BoA's new look of a shorter hair cut and an awesome stylist, reminds me of Mia's all-geometric black-white getup dressup. Anyhow this bump bump bump music is absolutely ringing my ears, and Crystal Kay and m-flo and Utada Hikaru and Becca should keep me company throughout the journey.

gn: center;">

2PM tribute for its style, the former hubby look-a-like Junho in one August live performance, with the fad trend of focusing embellishments of sharp cuts in a garment : the shoulders.
Chains and studs and shiny still follows along


Light L e a k s.

The experimentation results with the 135mm frame for Holga lended by Farah since summer is now developed. Yes, yes, over 6 months these are planted inside my Minhwan's Key.

 Fashion Product Shot Project

*most unexpected triple multiple exposure with the composition that's speechlessly perrfecto. No further explanation. MWAH.*

*The MOST <3 <3 <3 light leak where it's place at just the right curve and place, over the sunglasses. I wonder.*


  Little India Trip

*Pretty tchotchkes along the road with two expsures shot on flower and the hanging trinkets*


  This and That from All Over the Place

*...End up reading all to myself.*


*Dolls with blue and red flash*

*Soul Sister. Mother. Mother of God, always there to intercede and pray for us, blessing.*

And since I've developed it with the know-it-all Lomo Uncle Mike was making a hassle (had been prewarned he would) that "this is only for medium format why use 35mm that's why it's not optimal and bla bla bla"
Well well well I know it's only for practiceeeeeeeee but I'm still gonna use if Farah lets me borrow again this winter, this time square formatted!

With black tape and paper and tape on both sides to make the frame square and not rectangle.
Bahahahahahahaha *victory laugh*

This is post-assessment syndrome do not follow, I restate, it's not funny at all. My brain's not in my mind already!
