Fur Baby


, , , , , , , , , , ,


It’s insane how similar toddlers and dogs can be. Very often, when in the presence of wee babies, I compare their silliness to my dog, Lola. Sometimes people understand and a lot of times they take offense because I am comparing their child to a “dog”.

But the thing is, I feel like I birthed my puppy (Yes, I am aware of how weird this sounds). She is my little furry animal baby. Does anyone else feel like they gave birth to their puppy? Do you get what I am saying?

Oh my Dior

Does anyone else feel that adding a pair of beautiful sunnies to any outfit makes you more glam? Sometimes, even when I am dressed like a slob, I put on my Dior tortoise shell sunglasses and feel like a movie star.

OPI Fancy

I’d be lying if I said I don’t dream of being one of the “Rich Kids of Beverly Hills”, carrying a Birkin as a gym bag, scooping up Chanel like candy, and of course, never ever having chipped nails.

Outside my day dreams, I do at-home manicures (often not so much) and my nails chip in exactly 24 hours. So I am not a big fan of nail polish and I have never fancied any shade of nail color in my life.

That is until I discovered OPI’s Bogota Blackberry during one of my annual in-salon manicures. Now I am obsessed with this retro color that reminds me of Femina in the late 80′s, my mother’s feet and Madhuri Dikshit in a yellow backless choli that was the beginning of all our of our sexual awakening.

I’m a local Singapore artist!!

Hello Singapore peeps! I am now a featured local artist on Singapore’s first curated art print gallery: Visualtroop.com

The prints are really good quality and framed too. They have small A6 options, which are pocket friendly. They do islandwide delivery as well. PLUS, there are a whole bunch of extremely talented local artists in there.

Support local. Buy local :))


Can you spot mine?

You Learn

You Learn by Jorge Luis Borges

After a while you learn the subtle difference
Between holding a hand and chaining a soul,

And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning
And company doesn’t mean security.

And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts
And presents aren’t promises,

And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes open
With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child,

And you learn to build all your roads on today
Because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.

After a while you learn…
That even sunshine burns if you get too much.

So you plant your garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

And you learn that you really can endure…

That you really are strong

And you really do have worth…

And you learn and learn…

With every good-bye you learn.

Snacking and Talking

Snacking and talking. Talking about snacking. Snacking while talking.

All good things, in my opinion.

May your coffee be strong and your Mondays be short.

Excuse me, Miss?

Good Old Edward ScissorTongue

I love people who have a very low tolerance for BS, people who say it like it is, people who aren’t always worried about being politically correct.

Good old Edward Scissortongues, basically. Not to be confused with Mean Marys or Nasty Nellys, of course.

Are you there yet?


The ball’s in your hands, or so you believe.

The playing field is equal, or so you think.

You’re doing what you think is best with your ball, or so you feel. So, are you there yet?

P.S.: Sorry for not posting in so long. With work and travel and an exciting art project, I just didn’t have the time to make anything new.
