Overall after 18 years










(sweater from abercrombie & fitch, overall from monki, socks from mongkok, convers, necklace from b+ab)

What's up? I haven't blogged for days. I know. What have I been doing? I am preparing for the band concert on Saturday, and also recording a pop cover. I still haven't finished the cover but my Christmas activities are coming so I don't know when I can finish it.

I wanted to say this was my first overall but I flipped through my childhood album which was my dad's desk and found a photo of me wearing a red overall. So I can't make that claim. This black one is my second overall and the red one is the one first one of my life. Fashion trend is a loop. After 18 years, overalls are trending again. Or, after 18 years, my fashion taste hasn't differed by much...

I looked like a boy when I was little, right?

in the Maze

I really like daisy print recently! One day, I intentionally wore my daisy t-shirt to meet up with my third grader buddy, Daisy. She didn't seem to react to my t-shirt... oh sad. I will try again when I get back. Hopefully, someday she will react and say 'You are wearing a Daisy shirt today!'

As titled, I took these pictures in a maze. It was hard to find a quiet place in the park. The maze happened to be the best spot for photo shooting. Life is like a maze, right?

I was really happy to find this hat! My hairstyle now is also good for wearing hats! Oh.. I feel like I will miss my long hair when I cut it next month. 

So, what's up with my life? I honestly feel weird to be stress-free. My most demanding job right now... I would say is blogging. It is actually tiring to blog. You look at all the pictures that you have taken on the computer screen over and over again, and try to pick the ones that you really like. Other than that, I have been drawing a lot. I am happy to announce that my newest painting will be done by tomorrow! After that, I will quickly send it to the designer to publish my 2014 calendar. Exciting! I am also taking driving lessons. With my driving skills, I believe I am bringing excitement to the Hong Kong traffic...haha

the Weekend Dress




(dress from urban outfitter, shirt from izzue, jacket from urban outfitter, cardigan from kookai, tights from jusco, combat boots from guess, earrings from stanley)


This pair of boots is one of my proud purchase of this season. I found it online. Together with the points I earned from previous purchases, this pair costs less than 35 bucks. They are extremely comfortable. I wore them everyday in college.

I have been looking around in stores a lot since I came back. (catching up with fashion ideas; very fun indeed!) It is sad that I don't fit in some trousers. Don't worry that I will buy too many clothes during this break because it is actually really hard for me to find trousers that fit me well in Hong Kong.  I also have big feet, so it is also hard for me to buy shoes here. By elimination, there are pretty stores that I  never visit now. :(

I also saw a lot of nice coats and scarves but I only wear my down coat and seldom wear scarf in the States, so I don't need to buy new coat and scarf either. It is good that I have so many crtieria. It makes me hard to buy new things and avoid unnecessary spending.

mustard seed.

Lovely t-shirt, right? This is the t-shirt for Mustard Seed, a praise and worship band at my college. I seldom buy t-shirts now. I would rather wear t-shirts that are meaningful to me, like this one ;)

messy curl

Finally!!!! I am updating my blog! It took me forever and also required outflowing patience... My computer is working very slowly right now. I guess it also felt tired after working non-stop for a term. It is currently on strike. I am more than thankful that this happens after my finals.

Wonder if you have realized... I had a haircut! My hair stylist described this as the curliest perm that she has ever given me. Curly and messy. That's what she said. When she showed me with a mirror after the haircut, I was skeptical towards her claim about the curliness. Today, after washing the hair on my own, I had to agree that this is really curly. :P I haven't had long hair for more than a year, so I am excited to keep my hair long for the Christmas. After that, I plan to cut it short again. You know... I won't have haircut for the coming six months when I am in the States.

I am also excited to go to concert tonight! I am expecting good music. ;)

Winter Burgundy




(sweater from abercrombie & fitch, skirt from 2068, tights from hue, shoes from steve madden, necklace from b+ab) 

Back in Hong Kong! I did not manage to blog after my midterm break post. By the end of the term, I looked so deadly tired that I did not even want to look at the mirror. My mom commented that my outfit was so dark this morning. It is winter, right? These are winter colors! 

I am very confused by the weather right now. The temperature is low in Hong Kong standard but not too much to me. The wind breeze sounds really cold. The bright sun looks warm. Then, I often walked out of a building worrying that I might not have dressed enough, and realized I could have worn less.

I am excited to watch the Hunger Games- Catching fire tomorrow. Speaking of movies, I really enjoyed 'Song for Marion/ Unfinished Song', which I watched on the plane. I was glad that I had a pack of tissue in my backpack. It was a very touching movie and I cried so much and finished my pack of tissue. I guess my neighbor who was watching an action movie could not understand what emotions I was going through.

the Mid-Point








(give you a bigger picture of where I was...)

(blazer, cardigan from urban outfitters, pants from uniqlo, floral shirt from kookai, t-shirt from ragstock, scarf from nordstrom, boots from nine west)

Layering is very important now! With one outfit, I could go to dance practice, walk outdoor, cook at the kitchen. Multi-functional! Laundry basket is all full now though!

It is now midterm break, which means I am half way through my term. I feel that this is also a midpoint of many things. I am at a midpoint where I question about a lot of things. It is a very good time for evaluation. Should I pursue this and that? Should I continue with that? Should I reallocate my effort? Have I been approaching certain things right? ... Questions go on and on. I guess a lot of people are going through this too. I think this is a good process. To me, studying abroad is always like a long period retreat. 

This blog has been quiet for too long. My friends reminded me to blog. I was not in the mood to be on pictures. (Here's the point you question about going to college: Being so stressed out, look weary all the time, and end up like a zombie. Should I take it easy and be a slacker? ... Nah, that's not how a perfectionist work.) I felt really rejuvenated this weekend. I may look tired but I am recovering... My face wanna look sleepy and I have no choice. My mind, spirit and soul are joyfully awake. 

Life is still good. Questioning validate that I am making my life full.
