Paris in Winter!

I’m counting down the months and days to December! Why? Cuz we’re going to P-A-R-I-S!

YAYYYYYYYYYYYYY!

My list of things to-do is ever increasing including Gossip Girl hotspots, touristy destinations and most importantly, shopping venues! Of course I’ll get another Chanel, a Repetto, more Lanvin, another Miu Miu, another Balenciaga and a nice black Prada! That means from now till then, I’ve to work extra hard to shop and make sure our Paris trip is a blast. Hoping to spend at least 8 days there! I need a nice red trenchcoat too. Can’t wait to have the best macaroons in the world! YUMMY!

The Eiffel Tower

Laduree!

On to other good news: my Lucia is visiting in September for my birthday and we’re taking a short trip to Shanghai! She’ll be here from 6-20 Sept and I just can’t wait! Miss her so much and my Europe vacation last yr with her was the best thing I ever did! It woke me up in so many ways… I can still hear Alicia Keys’ Unthinkable playing in the car as we drove to Trnava..

Trnava!

The boy has started work and it’s taking some getting used to for both of us. No more sending me to wk and picking me up for dinner when I’m done. Oh well, responsibilities are calling out. Fingers & toes crossed that he does well and fast tracks to success asap. 😉 Can’t wait to decorate our apartment when the time comes!

The Scala! 😉

Back to work for now. Event’s tmr! Wish me luck!

My dream bag!

YAYYYYYYY! I bring good news!!!

I’m overjoyed! I returned from Milan with the bestest bag ever, or rather, my dream bag! Chanel 2.55 Medium Caviar with gold hardware!!!

The Magnificent Duomo

Retailing at SGD $5,170 here, I got it at 2450 euros! That’s before 14% tax refund, so do the math and you’ll know how much I saved. :)))) So worth it! I’ve been saving forever to buy it.. I was very tempted to pick up the new Mademoiselle too! So much savings in Milan and Paris compared to Sg. But supernatural restrain and the return of my brain stopped me from emptying my pockets on another bag and to enjoy the presence of my beloved 2.55.

Somebody is officially the happiest girl now.

I will not buy a bag.. until the end of the year! Except I couldn’t resist and bought a Miu Miu clutch on my last day in the city! Haha!

J'adore!

I’m one very happy but also very broke girl now.. I also bought Gucci chocolates, Fendi accessories and heaps of stuff from H&M! What can I say? I really like my money right where I can see it.. hanging in my closet! Thank you Carrie Bradshaw for that line that I will never forget. =p

Too excited to write now! xoxo.

Me + You…

They don’t know how long it takes,

Waiting for a love like this.

Everytime we say goodbye,

I wish we had one more kiss.

I’ll wait for you, I promise you, I will…

my office

my office is my new shelter from the storm and my place of refuge.

i’m starting to really like it, even though the design and furnishings could be better. but hey, gotta start small and slowly grow bigger.

so far, my nearest and dearest have all spent many a day and night here hanging out.

daddy dearest has just generously moved an old humongous TV onto the upper floor so I can watch football with the office’s MIO subscription! 🙂

Thank you for everything!

my loves on my desk

C is for Chanel

My 2010!

My 2010 will be remembered for these things/moments/people:

1) iPhone / iPad

My obsession with Apple continues and after getting my iPhone in 2009, I milked it to full use in 2010, capturing snapshots of everything around me (including myself!), playing games all the time, tweeting and texting like there’s no tmr. I dunno what I’d do without my iPhone now.

My sister got me the iPad when it was launched in NYC! An early bday present, I enjoyed being one of the first in Singapore to premiere it. I still don’t use it as much cuz I’ve got 3 other laptops but I love this baby immensely! Muacks

2) Family

I love my family the most. I’m extremely lucky to have parents who love, care and respect me and a sister who supports everything I do and gives me all her love in the world. Now I’ve got a brother-in-law and hopefully, we’ll get closer next year. Yes, I still miss Jackie every single day and no, the pain never seems to fade away but I trust and have to believe that he’s off to a better place. I loved reconnecting with family members this year too. Glad to get closer to Abbey! So happy to meet Steph & Shawn and darling Skylar! Looking forward to Cherryl’s wedding next year and seeing Jarrod again.


3) Friends

My friends are my much needed support network to stay sane, to laugh crazily and cry about my ill-fated romances. Thank you for being there for me for yet another year and I promise I’ll do better in my lovelife next year. No more drama k?

I love the new friends I made this year and enjoyed the company of Karen and Asheley, my sister’s BFFs. You girls are great!

4) Career

2010 has been excellent workwise! The Media Ministry has made significant progress and I’m happy to announce that we’ll be moving into a huge shophouse space from 1st Jan onwards! Yay! I wasn’t expecting much when I started the company but it has surpassed my wildest dreams and I’m gonna continue growing it next year and working harder than b4! Thank you everyone who made it possible. I owe you one!

5) Travels

I realised how much I missed travelling when I was in HK with the BFF. It’s been awhile since we took a girlie trip tog and I fully appreciated our quality time tog! Then, I left for Eastern Europe in July and things have never been the same. The sights, the sounds, the people, the places.. I finally knew how much I’ve been missing out and now I can’t wait to go back to Slovakia, Vienna, Prague and Budapest. (Egypt.. not my thing..) Taipei in Oct was amazing too! So much food and fun! Lastly, I’ve got Tokyo in 2 days! Whee! So from now on, every year I’ll have to explore a new country/city to broaden my horizons, pick up new languages and refresh my love for life.

6) Freedom

No boyfriend = no drama, no heartache and no restrictions.

I’ve enjoyed my freedom this year. Enough said.

7) Shoes

My never-ending shoes collection has continued to grow, at the risk of my father’s wrath! I’m so happy that I got my 2 Louboutins, my Chanel heels, my Marc Jacobs flats and wedge, my Alexander McQueen sandals, my 2 Ferragamo Varinas and Ferragamo heels, my Pierre Hardy and even my Dr Martens and so many other fantastic shoes to add to my closet. I can’t wait to have my own apartment and proudly display my victory medals. Hahaha.

8) Gym… NOT

Non-existent all year. I miss Muay Thai, I miss working out and I even miss dancing. I’ve to try harder in 2011. At least twice a week! I need some discipline and motivation!

9) Nails

The girls at Vedure have been fantastic! They’ve successfully converted me into a nails addict, letting me try out different treatments, colours and styles for the nails. I’ve had gorgeous nails all year thanks to them and I’ve so many photos where I’m just showing off my nails! 🙂

10) Love.. in all the wrong places

Self-explainatory. :/

Season’s Greetings!

Merry Christmas!!!

My favourite time of the year has come and gone, yet again. 😦

Here’s wishing everyone enjoyed Christmas and experienced the magic of the Christmas miracle. I’m still craving some excellent turkey and a nice bouquet of fresh white roses though!

2010 seems to have flown by. The first half of the year was a blur. I don’t quite remember what happened but I guess I was too depressed to care. I buried myself in work and I’m glad that has paid off. I’ve traveled to so many places this year becuz I finally can..
Seems strange that it’s 2 days till the end of the year. Have you accomplished all that you wanted to this year? Was it a good year overall?

It’s strange how life works and how things happen when you least expect it to. Reminds me that there always is a far more superior power than us and that everything happens for a reason. I strongly believe that. 🙂

Well, I can only hope that 2011 will be better than 2010 and maybe I can finally settle down! It’s gonna be exciting times ahead as I plan to either finally go to Parsons for Summer School (after an eternity of wanting that but not doing it) or going for Spanish Immersion to master my Spanish. There’s also Italy with Lucia which I’m soooo looking forward to, the new office, more work, new business…

Now, just to usher in the new year. I hope Tokyo snows.
