Storms

Do not fall in love with people like me
I will take you to museums, parks, and monuments
And kiss you in every beautiful place,
So that you can never go back to them
Without tasting me
Like blood in your mouth
I will destroy you in the most beautiful
Way possible, and when I leave
You will finally understand
Why storms are named after people.

I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you

Hello, how have you been?
How are the nights, how are your days?
Weekends were yours.

My heart,
held so many hopes and dreams,
still pouring out,
into a recess
at the back of my mind.

Turning 26, Mexican Style!

Hola!


This year I had my birthday at The Landing Point at Fullerton Hotel and decided to have a Mexican theme. Why Mexican? No particular reason...except that the dress I wanted to wear was Mexican inspired..so everything else had to revolve around it. Such a girl.









Was very happy with how the decorations turned out. They are are all handmade by yours truly - except the golden balloons and the streamers which were bought from a party store. I was actually quite worried as to how to pull off the Mexican theme, seeing that Singapore doesn't have much Mexican influence, or none at all. I was thinking about sombreros, cacti , margarita glasses...all super difficult to find in Singapore!

Tried my best and pulled together the above!

Thanks Fullerton for allowing me to make myself at home. :p

I made a reservation about 1 month in advance and informed them that I was celebrating my birthday and wanted a window seat. They very awesomely gave us a wonderful seating area right at a corner, all to ourselves. :)



Amelia and I, the 2 26s of the group.



Opening my presents. I got everything I wanted!

I am quite straightforward when it comes to presents. I'ld usually tell the other party exactly what I want, and even provide them with links/colours/sizes.




My birthday cake! Actually just 5 pieces of petit fours from the high tea buffet stacked on top of each other and decorated with my colourful and happy food picks.



Love my cake! One of a kind. :)









A closer look at my handmade pinata. I made it from a cereal box and totally eyeballed the dimensions. It's actually quite logical if you have spatial recognition. Am a proud puppy with my baby pinata!




Thanks to all my girls for making my 26th really special. I had a few celebrations before this but am sharing this set of pictures first as I planned this and super excited to put it together. I enjoy themes and I know my bunch of gfs are always up for the challenge.


Lots of love.

Ljubljana City Visual Diary















































In Ljubljana, we stayed in Rosa's apartment. She gave us her keys, grabbed some clothes and left. Everything else she left in tact - her fairy lights, a vase of peonies, some dog hair on the couch, a jar of olives in the fridge and an old Leica on the shelf. I tried to piece together a story of her life and decided that Rosa liked to change her hair colour and wanted to move to Istanbul, China or France - "any of these!" She would think to herself. Rosa liked vanilla and beech, marched to her own beat and was a romanticist. I paid to rent her apartment, but stole a glimpse of her life.

The last picture is Rosa's vanity table, and the first picture is Rosa's live-sized horse in her bedroom. She locked up her walk-in wardrobe (which I'm almost certain she built herself) but I had a peek through the chinks round the door and saw some gold vintag-y pieces and fur. If Rosa were like what I described her above, I would not be surprised - I am not making this up!

After staying at Rosa's place, I decided that I like Airbnb.com a lot and I highly recommend everyone to check it out and book accommodation through their site. Instead of looking for the 'cheapest' or most 'convenient', try looking for apartments with character and you'll have an extra special holiday.
