When everything else goes wrong, 
the only one thing that could keep us going is

Good things come to those who wait.
Bless me.

William & Kate - Dinner Reception

Ok I finally managed to find a larger picture of Kate in her stunning reception gown,
again fabulous work from Sarah Burton.
And oh, a picture of William in his suit, too!
Sorry I really haven't paid too much attention on Will, have I?
 But then surely I should be forgiven for having my eyes on gorgeous Kate eh?(*wink)

God bless this lovely couple.
Your journey has just begun.

William & Kate - Oh the Fairytale Wedding

Ok I might be a really bad blogger, 
but how can I possibly possibly NOT blog about the Royal Wedding???


Let's start off with the invite.
Found this on the internet.
It is said to be the wedding invitation to the Royal Wedding.


Then let's have a look at a few guests who caught my eye.

Carole Middleton - the bride's mum.
I am really impressed by how good she looks -
great choice of outfit, very undertoned yet demure.
And look how lean she is!
I actually thought she was Kate's sister!

The Beckhams.
David looks... erhem, yummy as usual,
but I gotta say Victoria's choice of outfit was a disappointment.
What's with the marine blue and the loose cut, sista?? 
You looked like you're going to a funeral rather than a wedding!

Princess Beatrice (R) and her sister Princess Eugenie (L).
Oh this couple has to be my favorite,
I just cracked up the minute I saw them walking out of the car on the tele!
I truly seriously honestly admire their courage
for turning up in front of 20 million people, dressing like this,
especially Princess Beatrice!
I wonder who the hell told her she looked good in that headpiece;
but whoever did that must have hated her to bits! (ROFL)

The Queen.
Love the yellow, love the outfit. 
I must say Prince Philip and herself looked good together.

And last but not least, our Julia Gillard.
She actually looked good from this angle, doesn't she?
Well done, PM!


Okay hold your breath.
Let's move on to our gorgeous bride.
First glance of the bride in the wedding car to the Westminster Abbey with her dad. 
Words can't describe how much she blew me away -
she looks absolutely SENSATIONAL!
And everything looks perfect -
the stunning tiara (which I am so glad she decided to go with instead of flowers),
the hair,
the make-up,
the beautiful bouquet,
and of course,
the DRESS!!!
The beautiful ivory gown is designed by
Sarah Burton from Alexander McQueen.
Superb work, Sarah!
I am so glad there is someone talented taking over
the kingdom that genius Alexander McQueen has built.
The french lace, the embroidery, the long train,
plus the long romantic veil, 
siiiiiiiimply elegant. 
Everything compliments each other.
What can I say?
She is everything,
everything I imagine a princess would look like.
 And hey,
Kate's sister, Pippa Middleton,
doesn't look half bad, too!


And of course,
the long-waited kiss (kisses) at the balcony!!!!
Don't they look picture perfect?
Beautiful couple!
Awwww, please live happily ever after! 


 I found a small photo of Kate in her evening gown,
again, looking stunning,
but I am really hoping for more photos of their dinner reception,
and the 80s-themed after party that Prince Charles organized!
Fingers crossed there will be some photos released to the public >.<

Wedding cake is made by Fiona Cairns, 
who is a renowned cake designer in British.
I went onto her website and saw the above beautiful work of hers.
Can't wait to see her creation for the royal wedding, though!

P.S I am so gonna learn cake-making/decorating one day!


Stay tuned!
More coming!

Sing me a sweet lullaby

Not feeling very creative today.

In fact, felt a bit sick mainly because I hardly got any sleep yesterday.

I've been having this really bad skin allergy for the past 2 months that wakes me up in the middle of the night because of extreme itchiness. I burst into tears in bed yesterday. I know how it sounds, crying over what, skin allergy??? But after trying out all these different types of antihistamines, creams, lotions and even steroids as my last resort and yet the itch still kept on coming back, the frustration and hopelessness just got the better of me. It is the lack of sleep that gets to me more than anything. I grumbled a lot when it first happened, but now I just kinda keep it to myself because I hate portraying myself as a sad nagger. Plus no one can really understand how a pain in the neck skin allergy can be unless they've been through it themselves, so I don't want to make it sound like a big deal. And surely there are much more things in life that are worth worrying about, right? At the end of the day it is still my OWN problem, so I just gotta find a way to solve it. Somehow.

Sorry I am grumbling again, ain't I :(?
I think I might actually do some skin pick tests to find out what's behind my allergy.
Shall make an appointment tomorrow.
Fingers crossed it doesn't take too long.

Don't worry, I will live.

True Friend

A true friend is

someone who accepts your past, 

supports your present

and encourages you about your future.

Have you ever...

Have you ever been surrounded by silence that is so intense

that you can't help but question the purpose of your life?

Do Not Give Up

There were countless times when I felt like throwing in the towel.
But then I thought of what kept me going for so long.
So I hung in there.

Living life to the fullest

It started with Christchurch in NZ.

Then Yun Nan in China.

Then Japan.

8.9 magnitude, for god's sake.

So people, if you still think now isn't the time to pursue your dreams yet,

seriously, I don't know when will ever be.

Obsession with beauty

Ok this might sound kind of vain for a 1st post, but yes, I am obsessed with beauty.

And when I say beauty, I don't only refer to 'physical' or 'fashion' beauty. Yes I would love my eyebrows to be perfectly arched and my pout to look sexy and plump, or walking down the street with a hot pink Hermes Birkin in hand and in a sultry pair of Jimmy Choos (I mean, seriously, who wouldn't, anyway???)...

But to me, it's not just that.

If everyone on this earth is born with a mission, then I think mine is to make things look beautiful. See I've grown to come to terms with the fact that our world isn't always perfect, so I figured since I can't change the world in the Barrack-Obama-way, maybe in my own humble way, I could use my gift to create some pretty stuff. That would make our world a more beautiful place, too, wouldn't it ?
