“Maybe I’m just trying to understand why we keep making the same mistakes… over and over.” - David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas
I died laughing
Shine bright like a potato Shine bright like a potato Find spuds in aisle three I choose to be happy You and I, you and I We’re like potatoes in the sky You’re a shooting spud I see Don’t want no broccoli When I hold you, I’m alive We’re like potatoes in the sky I knew that we’d become one right away Oh, right away At first sight I left the energy of mayonnaise I saw the starch...
an hour of torrential downpour
Chanced upon d’ Good Café at Holland Village and upon the discovery of beanbags (yay!) on the top floor (also known as The Attic), we decided to nest with a mocha and berry shake. Loving their funky futuristic coffee machines. Pity I didn’t manage to get a shot of those behind the counter. Out. - V.
housing all appetites
Spent the first day of 2013 with G and my Furla D-Light S Bauletto satchel, sipping on iced mocha and an amazingly refreshing Pineapple Pitstop, savoring a red snapper and soba in broth and old-fashioned American sliders. Noms.
I’d woken up early, and I took a long time getting ready to exist.– Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet
That was the thing. You just never knew. Forever was so many different things....– Sarah Dessen, The Truth about Forever
there it goes again
There it goes again. That heavy feeling in your chest when you desire to not speak or move. All you want to do is close your eyes and sleep, because the process of being broken is incredibly exhausting. You attempt your best to make your days fulfilling, but no matter how hard you try you can’t seem to connect to anyone or anything. If you had a choice you’d prefer to be numb, and not feel...
G. introduced me to Saveur at Purvis Street on our 2nd anniversary this year. French, affordable, delish - what’s not to love? What we had: Pan Fried Foie Gras with Lentil and Pickled Onion Duck Rillette with Butter Bread Crispy Barramundi with Crab Potato and French Bean Beef Bourguignon with Root Vegetables and Mixed Greens Definitely going back when we get...
if you would please ignore the pink frame
I miss my long hair. (change being change, and change being inevitable) I miss being sure of things, of decisions. (thoughts about how being contented is a privilege) I miss knowing how I want to live my life. (these panic-inducing, engulfing grey areas) I miss not being in the know.
maybe if I said it enough

let us all be kids again
“As babies, we were easy. One cry meant you were hungry, another you were tired. It’s only as adults that we become difficult. We start to hide our feelings, put up walls. It gets to the point where we don’t really know what anyone thinks or feels. Without meaning to, we become masters of disguise.”

frozen in time
The first time my parents brought me to watch Titanic, I was nine and couldn’t understand the real depth of the film. I had a sudden urge to re-watch it this evening, and I did. It was heart-wrenching, incredibly horrifying, and Kate Winslet, well, she was truly the star, every bit the poor little rich girl, no doubts regarding her full commitment to the role. Thoughts of survival...

somewhere over the rainbow
Some pictures of the Moschino S/S 2012 showcase at Paragon, invited by a very special friend and attended with a few very special people. Here are a few pieces I liked from the collection - I want that strawberry headband! Adorable. The audience was exclaiming at her carrot headband when she appeared on the runway. They used real fruits as props,...

I think too much. It’s a trait I find to be both my strength and my weakness. I notice things that are not supposed to be seen and I don’t know if that’s a good thing or not. I think about how people act around me, and I determine whether they’re real or just pretending. However, too much thinking can sometimes lead to assuming. Things like love, life, friendships, relationships, my future,...
