Lift me up






(Dress and Bracelet from The Dancing Jewels, Heel from Predro)

I always have a problem thinking of a caption for my blog entry. Anyway, how about naming it Tiramisu or the direct meaning of Tiramisu in English? Tiramisu (from Italian, spelled tiramisù[tiɾamiˈsu], meaning "pick me up" or "lift me up") is a popular coffee-flavoured Italian dessert. Sunkissed shades of coffee palettes that reminds us of Tiramsu, with ladydips of offshoulder topped and layered with flared out netting for the extra pouf that makes me feel so contented like a princess. Pair it with a silver bracelet to add a little edginess to the overall look. 


May is so packed with meetings, shoots and writings. All good, my friends. I am not complaining. Even though this year has even hardly ended, I am almost less or more planned with a full schedule for the early half of next year. It will be a big turning point of my life.

Well, I feel like ranting so much here but we all know this is for the public's eyes so filtering what-I-want-to-write here is probably part of growing up. It is about self-control. You can't always get what you want, but you can choose what you do not want. 

Friends advise me not to fall in love because I have so much ahead of me that is coming my way. They say I should not get distracted because I spent my last 9 years of my life wasting my youth and career opportunities away just for the name of love. But I never really totally agree with them because all relationship taught me something. Because of love, I have grown so much. Most importantly, I learn how to protect myself. 


While blogging about this dress, heavy craving for coffee just kicks in immediately. Going to get my fix at my usual hangout to stop feeling grouchy and off to interview potential staff for my upcoming setup for something new and exciting. Watch this space to find out more in my next blog posts. See you soon. X

CHJIMES












Off Shoulder Crochet top from The Dancing Jewels, Shoes from Feiyue (Shanghai), Sunglasses from Rubi

I guess red is probably one of my favourite colours. More often or not, you'll see me style in either white or red outfit. Red will never go wrong with any monochrome look. When I am dressed in my most simple causal wear, I will more often match with my red accessories (bag, kitty cap or even earrings). A simple white crochet top marries perfectly with a red lipstick which pops up and simply gives more attention on the face. You can always wear that for your first date with a nude eye makeup. Wearing a red lipstick also proves to your partner that you are confident with your smile. Note that you should not over-do your eye makeup if you are putting on a red lipstick. Crochet has always been a favourite material of mine, it gives a feminine touch and keeps my whole outfit effortlessly stylish with any jean bottoms.


On a personal note, I've been writing more than usual to work towards my own feature film as Grandma's mental health is deteriorating and I am afraid I might not have enough time to show her my work on the big screen if I am still taking my own sweet time. I am glad to say that I finally complete my first draft! In case you are wondering if I am rushing my feature, I just give no reason to procrastinate anymore. I move back to Grandma's house to take care of her and I can't help feeling the way I feel while trying to balance between my work and being there for my Grandma. I guess this is part of growing up, learning how to deal with your own emotions and being responsible as a whole. Ask me how I feel, I will probably tell you I am afraid. I feel like I am racing with time, not knowing what to expect, afraid to lose and not sure how much I can deal with this. I am not ready for anything like this. It is painful to watch someone who is so close to you has changed so much overtime that you can barely recognise her. Then I realise I just have to accept the truth, be there for her and move on.

Tic Tac shoot with Rhesa and Endah














   


TIC TAC INDONESIA (ENDAH N RHESA) from ang geck geck priscilla on Vimeo.



This is another Tic Tac shoot I did with Rhesa and Endah from Indonesia. They are the coolest pair of  couple I ever met. They both share the same passion together and I am really envious of them. How wonderful to be able to breathe and live music together with someone you love. They explore African and Caribbean rhythm, put imagination and musical nuance about beach, jungle, mountain and tribal culture. Hence, don't be surprised if you walk into their cafe, EAR (Endah And Rhesa), decorated with such entities, you'll feel almost living in the nature and comfort with their soothing music they play live in their cafe. They were invited to perform in Malaysia, Singapore and Kazakhstan before and one of my crew was so glad to met them closer in person. If you want to get to know them a little more, just click the triangle button above. Have a great Sunday, folks.

Life is like a bed of roses
















Flowerwall by Ektory, Photos by Monica Anne Lie, Accessories by The Ordinary Co, Clothes from AllwouldEnvy


This is one of my favourite photoshoot series that I have taken so far.  Thanks to Monica who's really put a lot of pride in her own work. I was down for the past few months over work and personal issues that got me really distracted and depressed. Not sure how or why, my senses have finally awakened. I realised life has so much to offer and I am thankful for all the freedom of choices that god has endowed me with. Don't be upset with things that you can't control and reflect on what you can do instead. Then put them into actions to help yourself. I am very inspired to write nowadays. Besides blogging, I am pitching for a feature and writing another one on my own now. Hopefully, everything will turn out well. Well, I keep reminding myself there is really no time to waste, three more years I will be hitting the three! Meanwhile, I feel great to work on my script in a yoga studio so whenever I get my writer's block, I go for yoga class to take a work break. How productive and fulfilling my day is! I love myself!

Shanghai Work Trip







 

All photos credit to Earl Foo 

I spent a few days in Shanghai with my crew to work on a recent project. There were some hiccups along the way but luckily, I managed to get them solved. Due to a last minute change in our flight schedule, we ended up with a free day in Shanghai, hence we decided to explore Shanghai a bit. The weather was between 10-14 degrees and we both love it especially Earl. (I admit sometimes the weather is so cold, it makes me so sleepy that I don't really want to get out of my house.)

I shall do a quick sum up of my day - we went to Xintiandi for brunch, visited a camera museum and then we took a cab to Yuyuan garden then we walked to the Bund at 5 plus to wait for sunset so that we could have a sight of both day and night scenery of the Bund. We took alot of pictures.  Earl suggested to take a ship across so we bought tickets to travel to the other side that only cost us a dollar each. We were surprised how cheap it was. Then when we were on the other side, the view wasn't what we expected to get so I came out with this logic and told Earl that - Beautiful thing only looks good when it is admired from afar ... Well, in real life we don't always get what we see sometimes. I wanted Shanghais food since it was our last day in Shanghai so we went into a very expensive looking restaurant. I thought it was funny how me and Earl were trying to choose something cheap from the menu and the serving was damn freaking small.

After dinner, the queue outside the shopping mall was so atrocious I don't know how to describe it. We waited for almost an hour to get a cab to head to our next meeting place with our Shanghai talents for a drink. We ended the day with good company and drinks. It was really an awesome trip at Shanghai I must say. I can't believe I spoke so much mandarin in those 5 days in Shanghai that I feel that like I was speaking like a shanghais and I was so glad that my chinese was finally in good use. I was really happy.
