rouge collection b+ab

i’ve known angela since high school. she’s the baby sister of one of my best friends, ada.

both the ooi’s sisters were so talented: ada is a great dancer; angela is a very artistic girl and draws so well.

funny thing is, angela used to hate art subjects so much, but now she became a fashion designer who has worked for many great brands.

having worked in italy for some time, she is now back in town (came back for her lovely husband… congrats on your wedding too dear~), and became the designer for b+ab, a fun-filled brand under IT group.

she introduced this new high end line called Rouge Collection for the brand, bringing more elegant yet edgy outfits that are suitable for work or dressed up events.

it’s amazing to see my “half-baby sister" to have created an impressive collection… so proud of you angela!

thanks so much for the lovely outfits!!

this CLOUDY 2 piece outfit is so soft & silky. the print is nicely done.

i have never imagine that i can carry such lady-like outfit. but it turns out to be very wearable.

hello, my favourite birthday cake – crunchy mango cake from Maxim’s!

despite being a chain, i actually think Maxim’s cakes are better than many other premium cake shops!

my boring, long hair has been kept for many years. my urge for my high school short hair has been growing & growing…

so i used the Chinese New Year tradition as an excuse to finally go back to my favourite boyish style!

2013-02b

the best thing about short hair is you can wear your fedoras as freely as you want, without the fuss of tugging your pony tail or bun inside the small area of the hat!!!

interview by Mingpao

i’ve known Syreeta the renowned hk style blogger almost since i first started working in the pr field.

(check out her blog: http://lifestyle-syreetasik.blogspot.hk)

but it’s the first time we actually sat down and shared so much on leisure topics and common interests.

this interview is about my preferences on gadgets and what kind of techy stuff i like.

so i revealed my fetish on The Lonely Island and 漫畫日和…

gosh, my hope of being a talented writer has officially just vanished!!

2013-01-16_Mingpao

i might as well share my favourite video here then…

The Lonely Island – We Like Sportz

(i made a parody with my gals during our trip to BKK earlier… but it’s too embarrassing to be shared)

漫畫日和世界末日

this has got to be the funniest jap anime everrrrr

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAregram: i didn’t Tickalook on the day of the interview. but wore something similar later…

after i cut my hair short! :P

i love boyish styles!

interview by JET magazine

it was an extreme honor to be interviewed by JET, one of the best lifestyle magazines in town!

this feature is about the “new generation" of lyricists in hong kong, on our views about the music scene.

had a great time talking about music, writing, my works with Ernus the pretty editor! thanks again!

Jet_0

Yes, RubberBand was the cover for this issue!

Jet_1so lucky to meet a great editor of a great magazine.

thank you girls: sassy bridesmaids trip

can’t believe it’s been 2 months after my wedding!

we still can’t get over the fun from my bachelorette & wedding parties, so we’ve decided to go on a trip to bangkok for some relaxy gal’s time!

what a coincidence: COMO group, the hotel giant that runs luxury resorts over the world in the most desirable destinations such as maldives, bangkok and even bhutan, approached me and offered a complimentary stay for me & my gals!

and so we stayed at the Metropolitan Hotel for our 3D2N trip.

it was such a GREAT pleasure! and definitely a big wedding gift!

this is gonna be a looooong article…

the Metropolitan (the MET) is located in the heart of the city, just 10 mins walk to the MRT station.

the simplistic design & ambiance was super stylish.

and the suite offered to our party of 4 was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! we basically just don’t want to leave our suite!

and it’s a perfect suite for our late night gals’ chat and many stupid behavior (look at the balloons & champagne… -__-“)

as a thank you gesture, we took some nicey photos in the suite, which were later featured in the wedding magazine Darizi.

Hope our coverage on MET is useful for anyone who fancied a relaxy trip in BKK!

???????????????????????????????

we also have our very own butler RC to take care of our needs.

this has to be the most luxury stay i’ve ever had!

Thank you RC!

i’m so loving their restaurant GLOW too. located by the pool, it offers a healthy menu, yet everything’s yummy.

with a fresh fruit + bakery buffet and a “main course" to be picked from their menu, it’s  kinda too full for breakfast! but who cares?

food in thailand is always incredible. we were also treated to a dinner in Nahm, the restaurant inside our hotel, which was awarded the 50 world’s best restaurnt by UK authoritative Restaurant magazine.

It was such a privilege to dine with my gal pals there as the booking is crazily full.

can’t describe how yummy each dish was… i just really want to revisit the place with all my friends & family…

the erawan tea room in grand hyatt hotel is also one of our favourite spots for lunch in BKK. the larb moo (minced pork salad), the spicy beef salad, curry are all fantabulous.

but my fave goes to the pandan iced tea which is soothing and cooling!

we paid a quick visit to the new asiatique – a big marketplace revamped from a warehouse. it was a little bit touristy for us but some of the goods sold there are pretty cute, especially household stuffz.

the giant ferris wheel from afar is its signature, and a nice view to look at.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

the waterfront is lined with restaurants. we randomly picked one and it was really good! (well, just the usual dishes you would order in a thai resto, but all of them taste good! :))

we also dropped by the MET bar for drinks, as you can see, all dressed up!! heehee~

unfortunately it was a quiet night and we didn’t go crazy dancing.

but it was a nice gal’s night chat anyways!

love our rainbow colored cocktails!!! what a night!

2013, everything anew

since five or 6 years ago, the first day of every year is not just celebration of the new year.

it’s the annual star-studded music award show organized by the radio CR903!!

on 1 jan 2010, i received my first award as a lyricist for the song i wrote for RubberBand, “SimpleLoveSong". (hahahaha sounded so lame when i actually write this out)

anyway, this year is another lucky year for me as RubberBand’s album EASY was awarded Album of the Year! It was so exciting as i’m one of the 2 lyricists taking care of all the songs in the album (the other lyricist being my hubby, the vocalist of the band!)

It was such a meaningful award to me and the band, and the producers too!

this is a photo captured by 903. look! i was saying my thank you speech! *blush*

thanks to Venus @ Heaven Please for the lovely wardrobe! i hope i look alright when i was on stage! :D

thank you 2013! I hope this will be a good year!!

free your nightside

i was invited by Lee to be featured in their lifestyle viral video in a collaboration with Soliton, the music app. It’s fun to go on a tram ride with the crew, just to share my music preferences as a lyricist.

have to admit that Lee is a cool brand. there are so many interesting denim stories told by Lee, and its denim outfits are comfy and easy to style.

check out the video here:
