    Baume & Mercier MyClassima Tells More Than The Time

      I joined a luxury timepiece distributor and retailer without having owned a “serious” watch to talk about.  I could only claim to have a good eye and taste for watches, and how I prefer masculine to feminine styles. The wait is over – I now have a new Baume & Mercier MyClassima piece.  It… Read More » The post

    F-abric: The Coming of Slow Fashion?

    Mixing and Matching To The Mood

      My mum often asks why I dress up “just to go downtown”,  especially in a pair of thick jeans in sweltering 30°C heat.  To me, my style of the day simply reflects the mood I am in, rather than its appropriateness.   I wonder how I would describe the mood that made me style my self-designed shirt… Read More » The post Mixi

    Summer Sandals Made for Walking

      Flat sandals are comfortable, light and cool.  I find the platform models even cool-er. The heels confer upon them a less casual and edgier look.  I got my latest design from the Minelli Summer collection.  I love the fringe detail and stripes on the platform heels. They look heavy but are actually not! They are possibly my… Read More » The post

      Sorry donut fans – I find it hard to get excited over donuts.  To me, they are just a sugary dough often topped with more sweetness.  That was my impression until I tried the donuts with a twist at Brother Bird on Bali Lane in Singapore.  This is a small restaurant-cafe with a dark… Read More » The post Brother Bird,
