as #clozetteambassador @mymakeuporganizer's plusone at #thomaswee's show for #KLFWRTW2015 featuring a collection that reminds me of the sombre grace that lies beyond the rambunctious.. be it a street kungfu aftermath or a post-coital smoke with a virgin concubine

my favourite look (right) from #aliabastamam's #KLRTW2015 show last night: ahh delightful like an enid blyton pixie in a lilac-hued fringed tulip dress �� i'm not usually one for pleats (looks very awkward on my chubby trunk) but the kittenish construction made it very agreeable.
i regret such poor picture quality due to my misbehaving iphone cam but nevertheless always delighted to attend a show.


 in support of #AliaBastamam at #KLFWRTW2015 with #clozetteambassador @mymakeuporganizer. a collection of playful silhouettes and delightful use of pleats invoking neapolitan icecream�� thoughts of an adult royal teddy bear tea party ������ such gleeful elegance!
Fortunate to be in the company of such elegance last night: Clozette Ambassador Romana @myromana and the demure Su @parisbmws!
We braved through the post-pour standstill traffic in the name of fashion!

Fishbraid fierce today at #KLFWRTW2015.

Here with Romana @myromana for #innaired's show at #KLFWRTW2015.
Not successful with my 'en vogue' pose but love this anyway! Thanks WOW Booth! 

This caps my #KLFWRTW2015 posts.
I was so fortunate to get the opportunity to attend KL Fashion Week Ready-To-Wear 2015 this time around thanks to Clozette Ambassador Romana @myromana. 

My favourite looks from Innai Red's #KLFWRTW2015 show last night:

1. Gosh how I love capes! This entire look encapsulates that Helen Reddy song: "I am strong, I am invincible, I am woman."

2. The red off-the-shoulder bustier with bow sleeves. Stunning and strong with just enough romantic details to keep it whimsical.

3. The Neon yellow capelet that looks like beetle wings. What's not to love??
*Such a thrill to see Deanna Ibrahim on the catwalk last night. she is feroshhh *rawr*

4. Check out that origami obi that looks like a rainforest local's anyaman belt! MAJ


The Fashion Week sugar high will leave me with a buzz for awhile. Hope you enjoyed my posts from the #5throwandlovinit. Have an on-point week everyone!

#fwis / #ihavethisthingwithfloors tile collection: penang

penang 02

I try to visit local Kuan Yin (Goddess of Mercy) temples wherever I go. It's mainly due to a fortune reading I did years back that revealed (I only remember vaguely) my life's(?) affinity to the deity and that if I offered more prayers to her there would be more peace and goodness in my life. I'm all for more peace and goodness in my life! 

This Goddess of Mercy temple also knows by the locals as 'Kuan Yin Teng' is the oldest Chinese temple in Penang said to be built in 1728. Kuan Yin (Goddess of Mercy) is probably the more notable of deities clad in her elegant white robe offering compassion and benevolence to her devotees.

Guy and I stopped to make a prayer. In our experience each temple may differ (in terms of number of joss sticks to be used and the prayer flow / direction) but temple go-ers are relatively helpful so just feel free to ask the aunties how to go about it. We were slightly worried someone was gonna steal our rented tandem bike so what we did was park our bicycle at one of those stalls (we chose the most busybody looking auntie seller) outside selling prayer amenities and bought a couple of lotus candles from her in exchange that she'd also watch our bike. Heh.

festival belia putrajaya 2015 #fbp2015

At the last hour I decided to accept JYi's invitation to pop over to Festival Belia Putrajaya 2015 for a mosey.

I had read on my Facebook feed that my homegirls Eats, Shoots and Roots will be hosting a Plant Mixology in collaboration with Dewakan so it was decided that that would be our first stop.

Snipping off some kemangi (lemon basil).

annual angie installation: happy mother's day 2015

As you know, (almost) every year (started here in 2009 and here's the last in 2014) I put up a birthday + Mother's Day installation and this year is no different albeit serba kekurangan.

There were NO flowers left post-mother's day which was a boo on my part but happy to know lotsa mummies got blooms this year. It was such a sad sight that the lone auntie in the cold room choosing flowers for a hand bouquet actually had to verbally express her frustration to me.  I absolutely empathized. I made do with whatever that was left: roses and lilies.

Also surprised her with the much coveted Chiffon Pink Le Creuset pot with a Feu de Touch Tocca candle as company. This year the theme is La Vie en Rose.

Pretty in pink! Surely even the humble Maggi Mee would taste gourmet in a pink pot?

Needless to say she enjoyed it thoroughly :) And that's all that matters.

Everything I am I owe it to my mother.
(Except the eyes. The eyes I got from Polkadotz Lens)
