Happy Humpday! Hope the long weekend has pumped you up for a shorter work week! The heat makes me value, or I should really say appreciate lightweight clothing. Since I rarely find tops that are loose enough like this.

Page turners – June 2018

At the beginning of 2018, I told myself to quit purchasing books unless I’ve read everything on my shelf. To no avail did I manage to fulfill this personal goal. My monthly entry will contain book titles and where to purchase them followed by a quick overview which is a summary I write. The number of books in every post will vary according to how I can successfully write an overview for each. 

Staple – LBD

I have been caught up with work and school deadlines in the past month so my original routine plan to blog on Mondays or Fridays have been on hold, but I’m going to make it a habit to blog in advance. If you have tips on how not to break a blog routine, please feel free to comment down below. Having said that, I have back-to-back posts to make up for it. 

What complements you

This was me circa 2015 –no wearing heels with jeans and no sneakers for dresses or skirts.

Baby got pink

Too layered for a concert? We watched Imagine Dragons live in HK and this was as warm as I could dress since the temp dropped that day was making us sick already.

Press for progress.

Happy International Women’s Day! The theme this year is to press for progress. As the saying go, you should practice what you preach.

4th UM EDT Novice Debating Championship

Over the weekend I was able to join a novice tournament held by UM EDT/UM EDS. Here are the full motion list and results. Strictly joining are debate newbies with the exception of the swing team, if any.

Starbucks Reserve™ Coffee

We checked out Starbucks Reserve at MGM Cotai, the first of its kind in Macao. Such a shame that I forgot to snap a photo of the recent additions to the menu but I do remember a couple of new drinks available; Dark Chocolate Mocha which sold out that day and Vanilla Latte.


I got this black flat cap in a thrift store at Dongdaemun, Korea in 2011, but it hasn’t worn out up til now and if I remember correctly, it was also an inexpensive find.

Layers , layers , and shades

Kung Hei Fat Choi! I’m back in Macao and I feel like Winter’s gone too soon. But of course, I must share what I did to cover up when you’re experiencing chill weather.
