It'll be 2013 in a couple of hours time! :D
In the coming new year I hope to attend mass/church more often. 
There that's it. Just this one resolution. 

Cheers to a new year full of pleasure, joy and fun! x

Now pictures from lunch on Christmas day after church with the family!

HH Angular In Sync Top - Black (S) 
(Limited pieces available HERE
HH Glitz Blitz Shorts - Black 

Close up of the pretty neckline

We were meant to have lunch at RWS but my Dad changed his mind when he saw the 
Prima Tower Revolving Restaurant while we were on our way there :| 
See where I got all my fickle genes from? Haha :P 

We ordered the set lunch that was meant for 10.
Obviously overestimated our ability to eat lol! (There were only 6 of us!) 

First up was scallops with crab meat and egg white. 
Perfect dish to whip up an appetite.

Then it was my favourite of the entire meal - Fish Maw Soup
The thickness was right, generous amount of ingredients used and it was super tasty!

Not a fan of prawns..

The revolving restaurant.
We ate for about an hour and we almost made a full turn haha

"Kong Ba Pau"

3rd favourite dish after the soup and scallops :D
Peking duck!!

"Superior" braised vegetables (?!) 

Last dish was the ee fu noodles that we took away because everyone was too stuffed.

If you are looking for a place to hold a family gathering, the Prima Tower Revolving Restaurant is a pretty decent place. Good food with great view at a reasonable price. 

My baby sister is a giant.

Hi guys! :D
I've been receiving many questions on my formspring asking me where I coloured my hair so..

Klearcut at Far East Plaza (Next to the popular chicken rice place!) 
The person who did my hair is Kenneth and this colour is called Ash Green.

It is not as green as it looks in the pictures (Taken a month back?) above anymore 
& I'm actually liking the faded colour better!
More the ashy tone than green. 

I also bought a colour protecting shampoo that maintains hair luster from them and 
its super good! Out of all the many times I dyed my hair, this is the longest my hair colour took to fade. 
& more importantly, faded to a nicer tone :P 
I can't remember the brand of the shampoo off-hand, 
but I'll do an update about it again so we can all have nice hair :D

Immune system down

I'm sick again.
Or perhaps I haven't fully recovered since I came back from China. 

Just got up from a nap hoping that it'll magically cure the nasty flu and sore throat but no ley

No idea what determination pulled me through this afternoon's shoot lol. 
Visit Hollyhoque's FB page HERE for a preview of what is coming up! 
I like so many items in the upcoming collection!
The Denim Panel Leather Dress, Slim Fit Pantkins, Cool Shoulder Tee Dress
& my favouritest >

Ruffles Peplum Pencil Dress - Black, Wine Red, Blue & Dark Cocoa
Got my original inspiration from Zara 
but I found the material too filmsy and its back too low, revealing the bra hence
I'm making my own huahahaha!

D: Look at my forceful smiles. 

I'm thinking of changing my blog layout to something more personalized, 
anyone here wants to give me a hand?

I don't mind paying or maybe I can do an advertorial in exchange! > :D

Forever and always

Stay, there forever, forever and always
Through the good and the bad and the ugly

Whether rich or for poor or for better
We'll still love each other forever and always

Hong Kong Day 2

I know some of you are heading to Hong Kong in the next couple of weeks.
I don't know if my HKG posts will help 
but I'm trying to complete them asap so you can use them for reference, at least?  (:  

Here goes Day 2..

We had brunch at this restaurant called Fook Lam Moon 
(Recommended on a Hong Kong Food Guide) located at Wan Chai.
Our initial plan was to go to Tim Hoe Wan but the queue was terribly long 
and the boyf didn't want to queue so we ended up there :|

Guys, if you haven't been to Tim Hoe Wan and don't mind waiting, please go if you're in Hong Kong. 
They serve excellent dim sum at very wallet friendly prices. 
Their char siew pastry is unforgettable <3

Food at Fook Lam Moon is on the pricey side but I guess you pay for you get? 

We saw 2 local actresses there and I was so excited because one of them is in the TVB drama we were watching hahaha!! Queen of cheap thrills. Mm

Jeeeeez this is easily the best char siew I've ever had

Fried rice with crab meat

Super damn good custard bun!! My favourite from SG is Canton Paradise's but this owns x100!

Yes cheeky face? 

Off to Ocean Park next!! 
Favourite attraction in Hong Kong. 


Thank God J is not a fan of thrill rides like me.  
Mm, this seems like one of the rare few things we have in common hahaha

Ocean Park changed so much since we last visited 4 years back!



Happy feet >< 

Hello there handsome

The weather was terribly hot so my hair was all gross and kept getting stuck to my face ;(
But how come the boyf still looks so clean??

What is this?!?!?! 
I feel scared just looking at it.

Games street! 
The last time we were here, we won a huge donkey that is half as big as me! Haha
Didn't try our luck this time though!

He was full of poses that day lol :P 


So cute!! I can watch them all day. 

Bloob bloob

I saw the weirdest looking goldfish here :|

New addition to Ocean Park!!

Feels like we were really in an old Hong Kong film 

Red Bean Pudding!! <3 Loveee. 
I used to eat it a lot when I was younger but I can't seem to find it anymore in Singapore :( 

Performance by the Ocean Park crew 

On board the cable car! 

What an unfortunate angle babe haha lookie like a pancake

Mini watermelon!! Too cute
Willingly paid SGD8 for it D: 
But whatever! I've never eaten out out a watermelon before!!! 

Yi ren yi ban, gan qing bu san hahah ;P

Headed to Central for dinner

@ Hide-Chan Ramen :D 
Joe brought us there last year and I cannot forget the super "gao" & yummy soup base!!

The cozy interior just like ramen shops in Japan 


Bestest combination (: 

Told y'all he was full of "pattern" that day 

Me taking a photo of you taking a photo of me lol

Pub hopped around Lan Kwai Fong (Which was walking distance from where we had dinner)
and the night ended with... 2 drunkards

We had so much fun playing "Bluff"
If you haven't heard, its a dice game! Read about the rules HERE

My photography skills chui when drunk lol.

This pretty much sums up Day 2 (:
