Hello, what’s up? My dog ate my keyboard. Once again I got an overwhelmingly positive response for a post and this time I just had to take a step back and bask in that momentary bliss, shedding the occasional hot tear that would fall in the wine glass that I’d drink from while bobbing my head to Alanis Morissette. (Fact: it is actually impossible to bob head to AM) Recycle-chic, you saw it here first. Let’s get back with the program, shall we – and what better way than to let trusty old Uniqlooks to press the resume button! Over to you, dotty blouse. Wish I could fake it and pretend this was shot relatively recently but snow in London – the kind that stays white below the ankles – is so rare that we all know these looks were shot that particular day over a week ago. Not sure which day it was, but I’m pretty sure it’s the one where lots of babies will be born exactly nine months down the line because heck I’ve never seen a city that doesn’t actually clean the snow. Hands up if you live in London and own a snow shovel? Of course, yours truly is out in the streets with the hubby only getting as intimate as getting a snowball in the face. Oh the things I write in this blog to keep it PG-13… (apparently thirteen-year-olds are the key to blogging success, hey)

Jacket, Shirt, Pants – Gmarket; Shoes – Zara Sale; Bag – Reiss for Elle (free with magazine)

It’s a fact, there is indeed such a thing as an all-Gmarket-outfit. Unfortunately all the items I’m wearing are all sold out so there won’t be a point in me linking to a site filled with squares and circles and sticks for you to pointlessly decode, I’m sure you understand.

Oh I think I’ve mentioned this before but I will get all my tennis muscles back on my arm  including ones that look like seasoned sirloin thanks to half-accurate forecast of regular hair-straightening sessions. Only on my right arm though. Either that or I’ll be soon rocking one-side-straight, one-side-curly hairstyle à la American Apparel two-colour pantyhose.

What are your interests outside fashion & graphic design? [Lorraine]Fishing in pond with barbeque fork.

Well, in all seriousness, I’m a Second World War/military history freak. I may have mentioned this earlier, but I’m more familar with guns and military equipment than fashion designers. I may have also raised a small red flag on some governmental database somewhere during my self-directed design project googling Nazi church, Hitler Youth, admissions into Hitler youth…

Although, I do like throwing forks at fishies in ponds just to see if they poop when they get scared, but unfortunately there aren’t that many ponds in my viccinity to sustain that hobby.

Do you watch Korean dramas and which are your favourite? [Phuong]

I do watch the occasional Korean TV Series, but I’ve only watched a handful. I find myself frequently hurling PG13 insults at the slow-running storyline and end up skipping a few episodes in the middle. The latest I watched was Boys over Flowersbased on a Japanese Manga, which I could say is currectly my favourite only because of Macaroni Hair (tall dude in the middle of the pic below), but I watched it in 2 days which is saying something since it’s 25-episode long.

What music do you like? [Lorraine]

I don’t really stick to one genre – it could as well be elevator music or thumpy music from cars passing by. When I was young I used to be a hardcore Christina Aguilera groupie so I hold quite a strong allegiance to her still, but nowadays my playlist is quite colourful. The base line is though, that it needs to be something I can sing along to. So preferably a female vocalist with a distinct singing voice. Other than that, I like metal, K-pop, HippityHoppity… Well the only thing I can’t stand is Techno and Trance.

Today’s photoshoot would be me swaying violently from side to side and headbanging my ponytail, whipping the walls and Ellen going all beserk with the camera screaming WOMAN STOP MOVING!! I think those two cans illustrate our emotions rather perfectly. Did you know, mid-headbanging, one can look like The Hulk?

I’ve come to a point of exhaustion where I got all confused with a spam email titled ‘Last night was fun, thanks’. I spent about half a minute too long thinking who the heck was I with last night? and I’m not even like that.

Meh anyway. Have yourself a merry little weekend, let your heart be liiight.

(edit: Yes, I realise the second photo looks like I need to pee, and the first looks like I’m yawning. What do you do first when you wake up? you peee, so it’s only logical)

I highly recommend anyone living/visiting London to check out Borough Market‘s Bambi-burger stand. They were out of beef so I had to go for Venison (deer) meat, which tastes Awwww my but not in the sense of aww my, cute little deer, if you know what I mean. I think if Disney had produced a movie about a cute little calf then we’d all be sentimental about our steaks and burgers. Not that I was any sentimental about my deermeat burger…in fact I was very happy to unite with Bambi that way.

As for the market, it’s a food market – a very well-mannered and full of colour, the sort of market where it’s still pleasant to be wedged between ice cream-hauling, burger-chomping people just because you’re doing exactly the same thing and it’s basically a food-gargling funfest.
