This was supposed to appear on the front page of a local newspaper for Christmas, but had to be removed because we have more pressing matters like the floods.
Here’s sending out waves of love and light to those affected. There are many organisations set up to help as well so if able to, please do so. Times like these, I count my blessings.
This has been a trying year in so many ways but it’s been an eye opener I am thankful for.
Sending love & light to those in need,
Incredibly starstruck around Dato Jimmy Choo. So much respect for successful people like him who are so humble.
Excuse me while I enjoy my 5 seconds of fame,
I had the privilege of having some of my Christmas related DIYs featured in The Star newspaper. Funny how I still freak out when being recorded, but the entire team was very patient and a great bunch to work with 🙂A huge shoutout to the wonderful team I got to work with!
Being a part of the stars at The Star,
This year has been full of blessings & this is not any different. A 4 page feature in doctorjob’s coursesNow! issue 88. On how it started, the idea behind the brand & the magic behind the scenes.
The magazine is targeted to high school students and school leavers who are planning their next step into the work world and the magazine aims to help them make a more informed decision about their future.
Funny how I’m probably the last person who should be providing such intense advice for someone’s future especially in terms of career. I may have come across as a free-spirited rainbow hippie child with statements like, “Do what feeds your soul and makes you happy”.
But hey, at least I’m honest about my choices 🙂

I love waking up to surprises! Especially it forms of art 😀
Illustrated artwork & costume design by the talented fashion designer Hariharan of Ardana Haran.
Combining his personal style of drawing and designing, to incorporate my love for mermaids and adding one of my handmade dreamcatchers to his design. Or to quote him “All I did was draw the real inner you, Ardana Haran style”. This was the result of that;
Harry and I studied together & after college, he went on to working on many different projects (such as myself). He ventured into his own brand, Ardana Haran (creating beautiful dresses & also, doing makeup;
Best known for infusing elements of the tradition Indian costumes and customs into his work. Here’s a sample of his collection that’s my favourite: Saree dresses;Also, he does makeup. We even collaborated on a photoshoot where I had to be an Indian bride & he worked on tying the saree, doing my hair as well as the makeup;Not too bad for an Indian bride ey? 😉 #aintnoindianwifey
Enough about me, check out his page for more of his work!
Tongue in Chic TV x L’Oreal Matte Magique review videoshoot; The idea was to run a full test of the product, basically applying it and going through a normal busy day (like I always do on weekend).
I still haven’t gotten over my fear of being recorded, a bunch of nerves, cuts and retakes but it was a great day. The starting of the videoshoot & application process took place at The Spacemen studio. I love that studio, & their two cats :3
I got to try on a range of their products while blending it with my usual makeup;
Also, my boyfriend has fantastic taste (not only because he’s dating me) He bought me this pretty daisy dress from Cotton On. Favourite flowers & cute dress = so much win!
I love days like this. Fun, productive & with awesome people. With the team of TiC; Kathryn & Stephanie, Josh from The Spacemen, a L’Oreal representative, Stephanie & my beautiful bestfriend;So much love for the beautiful bestfriendloverperson, who took the day to help me with the shoot and everything else. Definitely my person ;
Malaysia Day is held on September 16 every year to commemorate the establishment of the Malaysian federation on the same date in 1963. It marked the joining together of Malaya, North Borneo, & Sarawak to form Malaysia. – source:Wikipedia.
To most of us, it’s just another day to be thankful for, because it’s a public holiday. Usually, I would take the opportunity to laze at home and work on accessories, or catch up on some sleep, but this time I decided I’d use the day to do something Malaysian. And by that I mean jalan-jalan cari makan! (walk around and look for food) because we Malaysians, we love our food!
For some reason, even my bowl of cereal decided to be all patriotic (note the moon and star like our Malaysian flag). Seriously, was I the only one who didn’t know they added moons to the Honeystars?!
I decided to head over to Petaling Street (Chinatown) in Kuala Lumpur. It’s one of the older parts of Kuala Lumpur, which has amazing hawker food as well as lots of street art. Besides that, it’s also our local shopping bazaar where you can find fake branded goods among other things, Took the LRT to Pasar Seni, which stops right where Chinatown starts. The best part, as you walk down the steps of the LRT station, there’s is huge grafitti art all over the place. Spent the day soaking in all the art and culture, feeling all happy to be living in such a diverse country (with such amazing food!),
While I was at it, I thought I’d be extra patriotic and wore this incredibly awesome tie-dye Jalur Gemilang tshirt from 27 Legacy Tie Dye. I’m a sucker for anything handmade, and local brands, this was a combination of both! I make tie-dye tshirts too, but major props on the creativity and execution of these tshirt designs. Every Malaysian should own one! Patriotism and style, I’m sold!
Tons of people commented on it, stopped to ask me where I got it & even, took pictures of it!
Keeping with the patriotic theme of it all, I wore a handmade KL City Skyline necklace from Oh, Montgomery out for dinner. I passed the design and idea to them, and they made my vision of the necklace into exactly what I wanted! They work on custom designs as well as have some dope designs of their own. I absolutely love unique local brands, especially handmade things. Support your local handmade movement!
