I’m not entirely sure what Turkey tastes like, superior chicken, perhaps? Despite the fact that my childhood had been smothered with American culture, I’ve never properly celebrated Thanksgiving as a holiday. For one, the fact that we were Koreans living in Poland attending an American School meant we were dabbling in holidays from all three countries, so ultimately it was cleaning up the food from Korean Thanksgiving and going out to watch the march for the Polish Independence Day… Then a few days later we’d go to school and glue turkey paintings on the window. It’s all a bit confusing. Anyway, Thanksgiving or not, this day is good as any – I just wanted to give a shoutout to my pumpkins Jen & Kit for being wonderful friends, thank you for reminding me to take my meds and reading bedtime stories when I wet my bed. But mostly for tolerating my laaame jokes, of course.

Also a little something for the readers… I know it may not be as much as I’d always love to give, but MyBag.com has allowed me to set aside a few favourites in a small style-shop, and using PARKANDCUBE10 10% can be knocked off any purchases in the next week! (valid till 1/12/11)

As a rare drinker the closest I’ve had to the Campari red is probably a squirt of a strawberry-fragrance dishwash liquid that landed on my lip while trying to drown a mosquito on the windowsill. Milla Jovovich was the obvious bait for me on this quick trip to Milan, as I joined Campari celebrate their Campari 2012 Calendar named It’s the End of the World, Baby after the popular belief that the world will end on the 21st of December 2012. Now, my personal opinion on that date is that it’s a load of rabbitpoop - you may quote me on the 22nd December – but if that gets Milla into 13 haute-couture dresses and throw a party then I’ll keep quiet for now. And how can I ever say no to Milan… I accidentally discovered marocchino (a miniature cappuccino with a cube of chocolate dunk for the sweetest last swig) and that was simply the best cure-in-a-cup for my travel exhaustion.

Thank you Campari for having me over, and Katy for the shots of moi!

Tell me you’ve heard of NIKICIO of Singapore, because this is not a quick post to redeem myself from the tiny pause in updates, this is a post to pop open the bubbly and shoot rainbow fireworks at eachother. So you say their clothes are ‘simple’ and all that, so why all the hype? By now you all know I’m a cheap bastard, and I won’t ask for your precious attention if the prices are way too high. So for example, the zipper pants in the last picture is, wait for it, cuppa tea, drumroll, $30! That maxi dress and kitty clutch are calling my name, I’d love to carry a real kitty in there but that’s just me. I love the brand’s attitude and concept: “clothes that outlast trends, and are cohesive or sensible“. I hear the quality is fantabulous too.

I’m so missing out. Their webshop is coming soon. On behalf of most of my readers I would like to say hurry up pretty please. In the meantime, you may as well quickly befriend someone in Indonesia, but remember not to say out front that you’re taking advantage of her/him, be nice at first, then be demanding. ;)
