As I sat in front of my laptop thinking of what to type in the blog page “About Me”, I looked introspectively into the moonlight outside my window. The night breeze entered my haimish room softly and brushed lightly against my skin. Ahhhh… The cold fresh air that flowed swiftly through my windpipe and filled my lungs heightens my memory of the years of my past… …
I took a sip of hot chocolate from my cute Christmas mug, and I pensively murmured, “About Me? What can I say that really describes ME?”
WAIT A MINUTE, HOLD YOUR HORSES…Who am I kidding? 😛
First of all, let’s clarify a few points… YES, I am sitting in front of my laptop, and NO, there is no moonlight outside my window for me to look at, that’s for sure. ‘Cause it is bright and sunny out there right now! NO gentle breeze to enter my lungs, just stale air surrounding me. And certainly NO hot chocolate and a cute Christmas mug within my vicinity (though I could make a quick trip to the kitchen and make myself a nice cup of it).
Totally not how I had imagined it to be, huh?
Yes… Back to the real topic of “About Me”, before I veered off course again.
As seen from above, I do have a vivid imagination. I like to imagine myself in places I have seen on TV, magazines, and photographs. I am fond of creating characters and stories.
I love writing (or in this case- typing) all the ideas and stories that flow through my brain. I like writing short stories. I remember back in high school, during English lessons, I am always zealous in writing narrative essays. I would always give my all in writing a good narrative to impress myself and my teacher. I would spend a long while immersed in my little story bubble to plan the story plot- often lost in a limbo of space. I am always intrigued to step into the shoes of the characters I have created in my stories.
Other than writing and reading (of course), I love travelling. I have been obsessed with this since the end of first year in college. My virgin trip to the States really opened my narrow black eyes to a whole lot of possibilities. Since then, my inner adventurous desire slowly trickled out from my body. The world is so huge and beautiful. God created such a marvellous sight for us to slowly unravel.
It is the process of untangling, via trekking through the wild forest, stepping on mud, climbing over slippery moss covered logs, getting lost in the unknown and having difficulty to decipher the map that looked somewhat ancient Greek to me, that makes me feel the sense of accomplishment when I arrive at the final destination.
I mean, the product is always so much sweeter having worked your ass for it right? It is these memories that will always remain deeply hitched in my mind, and will be cherished forever.
We all got to eat don’t we? Sometimes a little more unhealthily than our body can take, but we shall worry about today’s fat build up, tomorrow? Haha…
Not saying, you should do it every day, but once in a while, an indulgence of your favourite fried oyster omelette/fried carrot cake at your local hawker centre, or to pork out on your super cheesy pasta/pizza with extra grated cheddar cheese on top at your favourite Italian restaurant (don’t judge- I like my cheese,ok?) to momentarily erase your worries for the day can be quite comforting!
Fashion is very subjective. What I deemed as fashion forward and really trendy looking may look like a total train wreck in someone else’s eyes. I believe fashion is confidence. Confident to be ME.
Bold to admit, “Albeit you may think not like it, but I love bright colours, it makes me happy! And that’s all that matters.” I love bright coloured jeans, I have tons of them. I like printed flowy dresses and skirts, they really brighten my day.
Of course, there are dull and lazy days, where simple grey and black would suffice.
It all boils down to one thing- BEING CONFIDENT TO BE YOU! You live for yourself, if you love the edgy- rocker look, or the sunshine- girly look then go for it!
Don’t be afraid to express yourself through the clothes and statement pieces you wear!
WOLO, so let’s try to colour our journey with beautiful memories of the things we wear!
Since my life revolves around my short stories, travel, food and fashion, this blog is all about that!
