Recently, I went for my long-awaited haircut since the Chinese New Year period. I am back with my ever favourite Pixie Cut. I have always been having short hair cause it saves me a lot of time and yes spunky is the attitude. I take great pleasure in parading my "crown" ;)

The last time I had a pixie cut was back in 2012, which was not far off. But as one grows older, the expectation is to have a luscious lock of long, healthy hair. As most of you know by now, I dye my hair quite often and not that many of you know that I do regular treatment at the salon and at home too. So, I do my part to take care of my hair.

My Stylist once told me, if the product / colouring is damaging to the scalp then a lot of people would have lost their hair and the stylist would be the first to be affected. Only when your scalp is not properly taken care of and your hair is lacking of necessary minerals and nutrients that is where it will not be able to withstand the product. Never blame the products, reflect on your own self first.

With my short hair, another issue arise. Mistaken identity. Friends are concerned that others may mistaken me for a guy or a tomboy. I only take this as an opportunity to flaunt all my beautiful dresses and fashion. It is the moment to parade with confidence. I feel very lucky to be a woman as we have the choice to pants up or dress down.... I mean wear a dress or putting on a pair of pants (you get what I mean).

I am a fan of maxi dresses as it is so simple to match with everyday. With my short hair, it allows me to spike up the fashion. I can don on chunky earrings and accessories and it would not be too much or extreme (short hair, don't care).

Although Singapore is known to be humid and warm, I have learnt the trick of layering. I can be wearing a thin inner and throw over a shawl or cardigan or just a simple outer wear. The latest trend which I have seen people wearing will definitely have to be the Kimono.

Okay, definitely not this one. Just for your information, I have no connection with any Yakuza (Japanese Triads) nor am I trying to pick a fight with anybody. It was just one simple, pure expression...heehee.
I went on my normal search online to find something similar to what I saw people are wearing on the streets. I searched on Zalora which has a plethora of clothes and fashion for everyone with the keyword: Kimono and so many options were presented to me!

I had a fun time choosing those on discounts off (from 20% off) and some of them which were in large size or with a free flow cutting. Can you imagine this is only 15% but I already have something similar to it although in a different colour.

The details and prints on the kimono outerwear are so adorable. But I would have to say "It's those tassels which got me"...

It's 2015 and Earth Hour is coming on 28th March. Let us do our part to conserve and preserve the assets that we have on Mother Earth. But let not this be a once affair but a start or as a continuous reminder to ourselves that we must be vigilant. We can change ourselves to change the climate change.

To not be complacent that what we have will last forever, cause nothing...last forever. If we do not learn to protect then we deserve to lose.

Switch off the lights if no one is inside the room, increase the aircon temperature to 23-25 deg or use a fan to save the energy. Walk or climb the stairs whenever option is given to us. Choose wisely, this is not just about our lifestyle, it is about our Life.

Like many others I believe, we woke up with a heavy heart. It's the second day in mourning for the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew.

As I walk my way to the bus stop to go to work, I noticed an air of peace and quietness. Although I passed through the market, the coffee shop and even lots of other people, there was an atmosphere of silence amidst the noise.

I have no idea why I never noticed it before as I walked my normal speed but this time around I looked at every individual faces as I passed by and I could see the age, time, space and can only imagine what they have gone through in their younger years. Then the hard truth hit me again. As I was ageing, the older generations are saying their goodbyes. 

At the bus stop I saw a guy in a shirt and pants with formal shoes and I remembered him as my junior from secondary school. He was my junior in my ECA (as it was previously called) NPCC, National Police Cadet Corps and I was his NCO. This all this happened way in 2000 when I was 16 and he was 13. Yet today, I am here 30 and seeing that same young boy now as a working adult. 

time waits for no one.

No matter how strong, how rich and how influential you can be, at the end of the day, God is our creator and we will still have to go back to him.

Peace be upon you,

Today we lost a great leader who have lived his life building Singapore. Our flag will be hoist halfway in the state of mourning for him. 
With most deepest appreciation, I also want to  give my thanks to Mr Lee for all his contribution to bring us to where we are today. My condolences to Mr Lee's family.

Warmest regards,
