皆さん! (Everyone!)

I am very excited and honored to present my second blog award from the very witty and humorous Girl Interrupted of A World So Small:

lovelyblog


This award means a lot to me as it's a positive affirmation from someone who has taken the time to read and comment on my blog. The fact that it's coming from someone as awesome as Girl Interrupted definitely makes it 10x better! So thank you very very much, girl! Do check out her blog - it's chock full of her musings on life in general, this is one girl who makes one of the most intelligent posts that I have seen.

I was also tagged by the very lovely Chekka. Chekka's a blogger from Indonesia with an incredible sense of style. Ah, the young ones just keep getting better and better... I don't remember being so stylish at that age ;)

So on to the questions:

what is your current obsession?
deciding what to do with my hair. It's really long now and not as healthy as I think it should be...so I don't know whether to just trim it or cut it reaaaaally short.

what is your weirdest obsession?
Nina's hair! Kidding (though she does have great hair!) It would be making sure that all the hangers in my closet face the same direction.
what are you wearing today?
An old "I Love New York" tee and sweats. Today's bumming-around day.

what’s for dinner today?
Microwaveable pasta - from Marie Callender's to be exact:

marie callender pasta al dente


why is today special?
Because I don't have to go to the office ;)

what would you like to learn to do?
I would really like to learn how to sew, because I think I can save a lot of money that way. And surf!

what languages can you speak?
I can speak English and Mandarin fluently, as well as Cantonese.

what are you listening to right now?
Just the sound of the crickets on the hillside outside my apartment.

what is your favorite weather?
Sunny but cool (no more than the early seventies), sounds like a lovely Spring day!

what is your most challenging goal right now?
To figure out what my next job will be. I will be going back to school, so I hope to make use of this hiatus from the rat race to figure out what I really want to do.

what do you think about the person who tagged you?
I think she's adventurous, fun-loving and a whole lot more self-assured than I am at that age! :)

if you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
The motherland - Singapore, please

what would you like to have in your hands right now?
One of my bunnies!

what would you like to get rid of?
The unworn shoes and clothes and bags in my closet. I feel that they should definitely go to people who can appreciate them more than I do!

if you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
Tokyo!

which language do you want to learn?
Japanese! I learnt it at an elementary level when I was in college but I'll love to be fluent in it.

what do you look for in a friend?
Sincerity and loyalty

who do you want to meet in person?
My mum. I have not seen her for a long time.

what’s your favorite type of music?
Hmm..anything I can sing along to I suppose!

what’s the favorite piece of clothing in your own closet?
I can't decide! Though my Rick Owens leather jacket comes very close to nabbing that spot!

rick owens leather jacket


what is your dream job?
One that I am passionate about...though I have yet to figure out what it is.

any favorite models?
Not really...I don't really keep up with what's going on in the modelling world.

if you had £100 now what would you spend it on?
Nothing! I would save it!

favorite designer?
I am too fickle to ever commit to just one ;)

fashion pet peeve?
People who wear clothes that are too small for them!

do you admire anyone’s style?
Of course, a lot of fashion bloggers come to mind! I really admire people who have a definite sense of style and can pull it off. It doesn't necessarily need to be my cup of tea, but it has to be done well.

describe your personal style
A neutral palette, with a touch of the masculine and great accessories!

And in the spirit of this tag, I shall have to pass this on to 8 other people:
1. Diane
2. Sol
3. Hanh
4. Legyviel
5. Kokopuff
6. GirlInterrupted ;)
7. Leyla
8. Deep in Vogue
