Style It : Skorts




Skorts are crazy versatile. I especially love the so called "origami design" when it comes to these skirt-shorts. Skorts come in all kinds of colours and prints, I chose to style one in black because I thought it would be more versatile for an everyday outfit. I love how skorts make dressing up effortless because the design is so timeless. It's simple yet unique that even pairing it with a graphic tee would make you look like you spent a few hours trying to put the whole outfit together.

I paired my basic black skorts with a textured cropped sweater and one of my chunky slip ons. I made no effort to accessorise it because I was going for the minimalist. If you want to jazz things up, you can always pair it with a fancy sheer blouse and heels. For a more street look, a simple muscle tank and converse/sandals should do the trick. There are a ton of ways you can experiment on skorts so feel free to explore.

Fading Into Darkness

I did a shoot with Husaini the other day at an abandoned mansion in Bukit Damansara during the evening. He had this really cool ghostly concept that he wanted to try out. It has yet to be released so stay tuned! Anyway, these shots were just some portraits of me that he shot because we had some time before it turned dark. The place was super creepy but super cool too in my opinion. The mansion was huge! It was beautiful even though it was super worn out. It had "AKMI" engraved onto the main entrance floor of the mansion and pictures and burnt pages of books scattered all over in the main hall and the store room. I know curiosity tends to kill the cat but I can't help but want to know more about who lived in such a lavish mansion and the reason as to why they left...hmm. Anyone know the story? 





It was honestly pretty creepy shooting at such a place especially when it started to turn dark and there were thunders and lighting, much like a horror movie set. I was so paranoid yet so interested to explore the place. I had fun tho, it was a really cool experience. I hope to do more of these shoots even tho I might get a heart attack in the midst of it.

Style It : Arm-Slit Cocktail Dress




I barely see arm-slit dresses in the market nowadays so I decided to bring it in to sell on HLG Atelier. I love this royal blue. I think it goes really well with the design of the dress. It is simple yet elegant and doesn't take much styling to make one stop and stare. I paired it with one of my favorite gold chain statement necklace and black platform heels. This cocktail dress is a show stopper and is perfect for formal social events. It comes in black & white too if you think monochrome is more suited to your style.

Arm-slit dresses in general are hard to find but if you're lucky you may find them in the usual FOREVER21, ZARA, TOPSHOP etc. I personally prefer plain and print-less cocktail dresses but if you're looking for some prints to make things more interesting, I've seen some in stores so explore a little before you get it.

Pantene Beautiful Lengths

Why, hello there 

I'm sure you would have noticed the new hairdo by now....

Anyways, I've been meaning to donate my hair since the beginning of the year when I heard about Pantene Beautiful Lengths from a friend. She told me about her experience and briefed me about the procedures over tea. I have been growing my hair out since February and it never occurred to me that  it has been so long since then. It was definitely sooner than I expected and I was not mentally prepared for the cut at all. A few days ago, Sheng Wei and I went on a spontaneous date to the salon and I wasn't sure what got into me but I managed to suck it up and got them to cut it short. 

To make the cut, your hair must be at least 8 inches long. And before you cut you hair, you have to tie the top and tip of your hair so that it'll be in tact after you cut it. 

BEFORE

WELL, AFTER...
I SWEAR I SAID 8 INCHES BUT THAT'S PROBABLY 12...

Anyways, after all that jazz you basically have to make sure the hair you chopped off is completely dry and ready to be packed in a zip lock bag. When it is all set to go, post it out to the address given on their site and voila ~ you MADE THE CUT!!! (jks, you just donated your hair)

**If you're planning to do the same, head over to their site to find out more :) Pantene Beautiful Lengths

Mommy's Birthday @ Fuego Grill & Bar

It was my mom's early birthday celebration on Sunday and we decided to celebrate at Fuego @ Troika Sky Dining. 




When you enter the sky dining level, they'll escort you to Claret - bar/waiting area while they get your table ready. They only have 2 reservations timing of either 6:30pm or 8:30pm. I love the interior and not to mention the view from up there.






It took about 20 minutes before they finally escorted us to where the restaurant is as we were early for our 6:30pm reservation.








The Fuego Guacamole 

Soft Shell Crabs as Nachos

The Fuego Coconut Ceviche

Braised Beef Back Ribs

Chermoula Chicken

Fresh Leafs

Portobello Mushrooms

Fuego Churros

Berries Pavlova

The South American food was amazing! It's different from Italian cuisine which is more olive oil and herb base, South American food uses a lot of avocado, citrus and herbs to give it a zesty tangy taste. Definitely one of my favourite restaurants now. It has a good view of KL's skyline, good music playing and delicious food served. My favourite dishes has got to be the beef ribs and soft shell crab ♥ 





Just a side note for those who are interested in trying Fuego, you might want to book the 8:30pm slot as sunset can be slightly blazing as it's al fresco dining in Malaysian weather. Other than that, it was a lovely night. Troika Sky Dining includes other restaurants that I literally NEED to try someday soon. Good food and ambiance instantly gets any restaurant to the top of my chart with no fail at all.
