Finally, I'll be going back to my real home for the next two weeks to spend the rest of my holiday. And i won't be checking my mails or even switch on my phone. Don't worry, i'll be safe. Just really want to get a good rest before school start.

Au Revoir. See you in two weeks time.

The Nothing Song.

I don't know how it happened but i just stumbled upon our conversation history. It felt as if an entire of memories that i'm slowly forgetting just swirled right into me like a tornado.

All those silly banters and entire night of teasing really made me smile. Now, i even have to imagine how you're doing.

Do you still go for run at every breaking dawn?

Do you still have pictures of mine with you?

Does the cat still loves to sleep under your bed?

And i remember all the sweet-nothings we shared. Telling me that i've nothing to be shy or ashamed about. I realized its really is nothing in the end because words can only mean so much.

All these memories that suddenly flooded my mind felt so surreal. Like waking up in the morning, just to realized i'm alone.

Ph: Hedi Slimane

Still, i wish you a Merry Christmas. And i wish you love.

Lucky There's A Family Guy.

Seriously, I've been bumming around at home for most of the days. Past few weeks have been fruitful and i really enjoyed it. Now, i'm just too lazy to go out. These days, it just cost too much to go out. Its so hard not too spend too much when i'm out, its like a dying art. Urgh.

So i just glued my eyes to my Macbook screen, watching Family Guys episodes. And i can't wait to show Daion and Steph my two-cents worth imitation of Lois' voice.

Of course, watching Family Guys should not be the only way to kill my boredom. I'd appreciate all my friends out there who blog often so that i can have something to occupy myself with.

Like Sophie, have more Tumblr posts. You've been slowing down recently. Keep it going!

Fashion Orgasm

You know its not an easy feat to pose in a dramatic ways, give an 'orgasmic-worth' look and still look comfortably at ease doing it. Lets just say that Jakob Wiechmann completely took me by surprise. I've been wanting to show you guys this incredible editorial shot by Marcus Pritzi a few weeks ago. I guess my laziness got the best of me.

Still, better be late than never right?

Ph: Marcus Pritzi

In case you were wondering, this editorial was shot for German independent men's magazine, Feld Hommes which has been making quite a buzz in the Fashion scene.

Now, i can't wait to get my hand on it when i visit the bookstore.

"Bury me under ice.
Smother me under ice and snow.
Please extinguish me."

Soap&Skin, Extinguish Me.

Its About Time

My, my, my... This is something that should have made it to the novel or even the big screen. This werewolf and vampire pairing is a little inter-racial, don't you think?

For those of you who do not know who are these two guys down here, please close this window. I don't have time to explain it to you.

Just in case they really consider to make something out of this pairing. I have thought of a title to make it easier for Stephenie Meyer. It would be called The Awakening and the tag line would go like this:

"What would you do when the only thing you live for leaves you for the second thing you live for?"

"No evolution.
Sometime it depresses me.
The same old same.
We keep repeating history."

Simply Divine

New face, Alexander Wolf from German, looked too precious to be placed along my coming December Obsession. His piercing blue eyes could put Robert Pattinson to shame! I don't know what is in the water of the European countries but they just keep churning out extraordinary faces one after another. Case in point, Heidi Klum and Claudia Schiffer.


I bet a slew of impressive editorials and campaigns are on their way as i'm writing this down.

If you do,
tell him i'm in for love."

Maybe It's Just Narcissism.

Millions of people out there, especially the teenagers definitely haven't heard of Karin Dreijer Andersson alias Fever Ray. And i guess that's why they're going so 'gaga' over Lady Gaga.

And i'm having it up to my head when everywhere that i go, all i can hear is about Lady Gaga. If they think that Lady Gaga is so original in terms of her music video and wardrobe then they definitely have to crack their head and think again. This one half of The Knife has so much more to offer in terms of art and culture that will definitely remain timeless.

Here's Fever Ray with her 'skeleton teeth' make-up for If I had A Heart music video. Who says Lady Gaga is the only one worth imitating for your Halloween night?

She even went further and has her face painted like a Tribal Princess while most of the people out there gushed about Lady Gaga's paint splattered face.

In terms of clothing, do you still think Lady Gaga has the weirdest outfit of them all?

Fever Ray was actually birthed from the fact that her band, The Knife was getting so much exposure in the music industry that she decided to take a break and return again as a solo artist under a new name. The band was notorious for rejecting interviews and refused to perform live. Thus is the peculiar trait of Karin, shunning away from the limelight.

Still, i know that by talking about her, i'd be going against her wish to be so exposed by the media. However, i reckoned that Fever Ray's music is like a strict territory that one might find it difficult to get in.

Of course, it wouldn't be fair if i didn't explain to you guys why Lady Gaga was considerably over-rated, would i?

Sometimes, i don't understand the concept of her music video. Her songs are actually easy to understand with her simple lyrics but yet the storyline is atrocious. Half of the time, i'm trying to figure out what exactly she's trying to say. It seems like the video is nothing other than parading around in the latest runway outfit with a face that says, "Look bitches, i'm got it faster than Carine Roitfeld do."

Actually, i'd love her if she wasn't this commercialized. Honestly, the music felt as if i'm eating a food that has been touched, licked, bit and stepped upon, where at the end of the day, all i get is something that is impersonal.

I know i'm fighting a lone war against everyone's love for Lady Gaga. Heck, even famed stylist Nicola Formichetti and much adored Grace Coddington were gushing about her. So there's no wonder that she's appeared in most of the fashion magazine.

I've heard a lot of comments from my friends that the cover of her Fame Monster was incredible. Of course, it is. It is shot by Hedi Slimane, for God's sake, for those who are too ignorant to know.

Still, i have to stress that all these rants are not because i hate Lady Gaga. In fact, i find her sweet especially where she ordered pizzas for thousands of her fans who queued up to see her and the song 'Speechless' was written to convince her dad to go for an crucial surgery.

To me, Lady Gaga was just too over-rated.

I know, you guys might find all my raving with anything that has to do with Bjork over-rated too. Like her magazine cover on Rolling Stone and Interview a few months back. Still, she did all this without being pompous at all.

So i guess, in the end the only to blame for all this is Commercialism itself.

For those of you who are still bitter and think that i'm picking on your beloved Lady Gaga, please write another article or post to counter me back. i could do without stupid comments like "F*** You' , 'You can suck my d***' or what have you. Thank You.

So creamy, creamy.

Here's something to get you guys through mundane monday. One solid dose of Alex Dunstan!

Ph: Kai Z Feng

Anyway, i think i should stop snacking on junk food and start stocking up tubes of yoghurt in preparation of looking good for December.

I'm gonna have me some fun.
Don't stand there looking all dumb.

Reason Why.

Fallen Eyelashes

The sun stepped in
before we fell too deep.
Because our love
is way too steep.
I'm pacing back and forth
unwilling to move to the north.

If silence is golden,
you've crowned yourself the King.
And my wound's still open,
unsure of what tunes to sing.
If its not accident,
what's the reason behind all this?

A reason.
Yes, one is enough.
As long as it comes out
from your mouth.
Then, preparation of reunion
is on the way.
And Faith that pounds in my chest,
can't help but wails,
"Come what may!"

Pause The Tragic Ending

I can't believe on what i saw on my screen when i woke up this noon. Top model Daul Kim who's known for her quirky personality was dead. Dead. Dead. Dead.

She committed suicide though the official cause is not disclosed yet. It's apparent from her blog posts that she was battling depression a few months ago.

I wonder if too much knowledge caused her demise (She's an avid reader of philosophical books). Is 20 years enough for her to experience everything there is to this life?

Daul Kim

Usually i don't give a hoot about others, but she's different. She's the same age as me. Lived in Singapore before during her teenage years. And i frequent her blog often. I can relate with her. It's just a pity that a young life like hers have to go so early.

Just like how we do not have the choice of the time, day or place we wanted to be born, i believe we can't choose the same for our death as well.

Bye Daul.

Like, "Here comes the sun"

I wonder if anyone is thinking of going for camping these days. Well, i certainly do after seeing this editorial from Hercules Magazine. Who knew that dressing up for a camp trip can be so fun?

Ph: Bella Howard

I still remember back in secondary school days where i'm used (or forced) to go for camping every year and there is this over enthusiastic teacher of mine was shouting and commanding us everywhere with his boring shirt with motivational slogan and ugly shorts.

And the worst part of all? I'm required to buy that shirt as well.
