Just a Peek :: The Portsdown Life ft. Amos + Jan (and other updates)

5 years ago

RANDOM NEWS FLASH! I am currently in Perth, Western Australia, and I will be here for a little more than a week with the main purpose of shooting a pre-wedding for a dear old friend of mine, as well as attend his weekend this weekend. While that's happening, I am also taking the chance for some much needed R&R, visit friends, my old university and[...]

A mela.de.gypsie Christmas

5 years ago

And just like that, Christmas 2012 is Christmas Past. But why should we even stop the celebrating? It still feels like Christmas stretches on to even until the New Year comes. I guess when Christmas leftovers start becoming last year's leftovers is when we know is the season for celebration (and excessive guilt-free gorging) should stop.   I've to say I'm pretty proud of my[...]

Look, It’s Snowing!

5 years ago

As much as it can in tropical Singapore. Spoiler alert: It's fake snow (figures). Although I'd have to say that silver confetti falls very prettily.   These were some of the outtakes from the last part of my postcard shoot, taken when I was going for that perfect image. Thought they all looked good together in an animated gif. I am very thankful for a[...]

The end of year is nigh!!!   I usually say that with a heavy lilt of panic in my voice whenever December rolls around each year. However, things seem a little different this time round!

Uyii Life :: A Lookbook Photostory

While other companies are striving to lower their bottom lines and increase their profit margins, what Uyii is more concerned with is making sure all their bags adhere to their philosophy of promoting locally handmade products.   When I first met Liping[...]

Je suis bohème

6 years ago

Just allow me this moment of vanity, alright?   I've had this amazing colour(s) for about a couple of weeks now, and I'm trying to fight fading as much as possible. All credit goes to Max from HaarAttic, he does great work. I sent this to him and yours truly is now on the gallery of his website!   Oh, vanity of vanities.   On[...]

As I had written in the first entry of the year, one of the projects that I have the honour of being a part of this year is Basically.   We are a pretty new team that consists of people from different industries coming together with the common purpose of finding ways in using their various expertise and disciplines to create social awareness and to[...]

Xi Jade :: Jewellery Design

6 years ago

Jade is considered such precious commodity when it comes to traditional Chinese families, and its uses date back even to neolithic times. As far as I have seen, there is nary a Chinese wedding that does not include at least one piece of jewellery containing this ornamental stone as it symbolises beauty, nobility and perfection, and represents social status.   The challenge, however, is to[...]
