Photo Diary | SINGAPORE

How is it that I have lived in Malaysia for 10 years, and I never once been to Singapore until a month ago? I suppose it is one of those "better late than never" cases. Not that I really missed out too much as Singapore and Malaysia are quite similar in terms of the culture and food. I have to say, though, I personally like Singapore more than Malaysia. I just feel that SG is a lot cleaner, safer, and the people are really friendly.

Even though I was only in SG for a few days, I did see most of what SG had to offer. The only place I didn't get to explore was the Sentosa Island. My parents weren't really into doing the adventurous activities, so there wasn't much point going there. I'm also kicking myself that I didn't try their chilli crabs which are a must if you ever go to Singapore!

The first couple of nights, I stayed at Royal Plaza on Orchard Road which is where all the malls are. Woweee, you definitely need several days to get through all the stores. There were high-end, luxury brands, as well as fast fashion, budget friendly shops. Shopping heaven for everyone.

Then I stayed at Marina Bay Sands and got to swim at the infinity pool! I legit woke up at 6am on my last day just for a swim before the crowd and catch the beautiful sunrise. Sacrificing my beauty sleep was worth it. Whilst at MBS, I also went to Gardens By The Bay. I was absolutely blown away by the amazing architecture and the beautiful surroundings. It was just as beautiful at night too- truly mesmerising! My friend took me to a rooftop bar there and let me just tell you the view was absolutely breathtaking. Possibly the moment I fell in love with Singapore...

Ahhh I'm missing the beautiful SG already!

Back Split Knit Casual Look

Back Split Knit | Glassons

Shoes | Converse
Scarf | Sportsgirl 

And just like that, it's July...June flew by so quickly and we are half way through the year already. Gulp. Looking on the bright side, it's one month closer to Summer. I got to escape the start of winter as I was enjoying the sunshine over in KL and Singapore. It was great. Once I got back to Melbourne, I was hit with a cold. 

Sigh. Winter is truly here and it's time to rug up, blast on the heater, and drink many cups of  tea. This particular outfit just wouldn't do it in the 10 degrees Celsius weather, but it's a good layering base. I love the back split detail which is quite unique and flattering. As the overall colour scheme is quite cool, add an element of fun and pizazz with a patterned scarf. If you do decide to brave the cold, don't forget to bring a coat or a jacket! Stay warm!

Classic Black and White Outfit

Photographer| MARY THAM

Off the Shoulder Top | ASOS
Skirt | Portmans
Lace-Up Flats | THE ICONIC
Cuffs | Colette By Colette Hayman
Earrings | Forever New

If I can choose to wear an outfit repeatedly without getting judged as an outfit repeater, this would be the outfit. It is classic, elegant, feminine, and simply timeless. The off -the-shoulder top is quite elegant and a tad sexy revealing the shoulders and collar bones, yet it is not too exposed. Paired with the maxi skirt in grid print, just makes the outfit more interesting and fun. Both edgy and classic, lace-up flats are an absolutely must have and they go so well with this outfit! The black and white combination is just a no-brainer, go-to look you can easily put together. 

Would you wear this outfit? Is this your style?
