喜歡你 X 身不由己:就快瞧不起我自己

我從來不知道

可以喜歡一個人

可以喜歡到

開始討厭自己的地步

 

我討厭自己的用心

週一早上

為了給他帶家里做的蛋糕

竟然連手表都可以忘了戴上

 

我討厭自己

喜歡在他面前

裝得一副可憐楚楚的模樣

某位同事確實很討厭

但我是女漢子也

怎麼就想一直想讓他來保護

 

我討厭自己

每次走過他的辦公室

都要假裝沒有在看

其實要是他不在就會失望

 

我討厭自己

一點點地收集著他的優點

今天撞見他在煙客匯集的角落

哦 終於被我撞見你吸煙了哦

原來他手裡只是拿著一部電話

還好 還好

 

其實我並不太介意男人吸煙

只要不要煙不離手那種

但要是沒有吸 就最好不過了

 

我討厭自己

特別喜歡聽他的甜言蜜語

討厭鬼 這樣就想把我騙到手

不過我卻不覺得太反感

你繼續說下去啊

 

我討厭自己

曾經說過要找一個中文

很好的男人 才能對答如流啊

尤其是玩短訊的時候

但面對一句中文也不會的他

卻把條件拋離腦後

 

我討厭自己

我討厭自己怎麼就那麼

喜歡讓他走到我座位來

拿個桌上的甚麼來玩著

 

我討厭我自己

就掉進這個明知是沒有好結果的陷阱

卻樂在其中 沾沾自喜的

Sort of Cute X Something New: Coral Red Moccasins

2nd round of marketing survey

yesterday was a quick one

with my dad

as our weekend date

and KIV a couple of items

 

Time is precious on a Saturday evening

can't afford to waste time in

fitting room and

leave my dad sitting on the bench

 

So I need another more proper session

on a more sober head

on a more refreshed mind

with a better advisor

i.e. my mom

 

some skinny jeans and jeggings

I KIV-ed yesterday

from factory outlet store

two for a better price

 

that's why I insisted on

having my mom along

we can have one each

instead of me buying two pairs

 

Look of the day

OOTD - Collegiate kid in Vans canvas

 

So in love with my RollicKing

Vans 7 days a week oh ya

apology for my previous statement:

this pair of shoes is actually quite mix-n-match friendly

VANS X Rollicking: Modern Pet Edition

Vans X RollicKing Classic Skool Hi

 

First pair

Levi's signature Jeggings

Levi's signature Jeggings

 

Levi's 512

Perfectly slimming straight leg

well it didn’t turn out to be

“perfectly slimming straight” on me

Levi's 512

 

And the third pair which

can't even fit in

Anway what's wrong with the aura

Of this fitting room

Looking like storm was brewing

It was sunny back then

OOTD - Collegiate kid in Vans canvas 02

 

Then Payless Shoesource

LOWER EAST SIDE faux suede flats

perfectly soft material

but the colours are a bit problematic

neither are my usual crowd

peppermint green vs

what's the name of

that shade of red?

LOWER EAST SIDE faux suede moccasin flats

 

Peppermint should be fine

refreshing and light

yet it tends to get dirty easier due to

the light shade compared to

whoeveryouare-red

LOWER EAST SIDE faux suede moccasin flats

 

Loots of the day

Loots of the day

 

The pouch is too hard to resist

tribal chambray

and its packaging kinda adds point

hey look

I am the perfect birthday gift for you

Chambray blue pouch with tribal print

 

And the zip & button 2-in-1 design

makes it so flexible

expandable, in fact

in case there's too much

(it always happens to me..)

just turn the wristlet into a larger pouch

by leaving the button alone

there's a side pocket too

Chambray blue pouch with tribal print 02

 

This Roxy has been with me for

at least five years

that shows how

"thrifty" and "loyal" i am

that babe has been with me for years

 

This is totally new

a pair of loafer flats in ….. colour

I tried to google for the name

For this shade of red

Vermillion? That's the closest I think

 

Oh that’s quite dumb of me

the color is simple written on label

on the shoe box itself:

Coral red

 

new try which I hope

shall bring some PPP

Positive Peach Power

no should be

Positive Peach Flower Power

please Ignore this if

you don't really know

what I mean

Uneasy X Unsleepy: Self-talkie

The reason I found myself

blogging so much is because

 

i wish to, at time

share something out

but in the eyes of others

it could be too tiny mini matters

 

if I probably whatsapp

whoever is on the other side 

would not even know

what to reply

 

so it was soon drowned

like -the end-

 

although I would like to

elaborate further and further

 

my excitement

my pissfulness

my disappointment

my frustration

my hesitation

my realization

 

come on

everyone has got his or her own

set of the above

so who cares

darling, who really cares

 

so I talk to myself

I document these moments

for the sake that

if I really need to

rely on something to go on

 

then I shall look back on

my travelogue to remind myself

that's the reason to move on

 

If I ever forget

how was my uni years like

I shall dig up those posts I wrote

whenever I got so

pissed and so pleased

 

no one ever treasure my own things

like me myself do

so I catalogue them

 

no one would help me to remember

I once felt loved

hence I pen them down

 

I switched off the wifi

1:02 am just now

then I realize this is a long night

I am not gonna fall asleep

anytime soon

 

so I turned it on again

at the time I need someone to talk to

but I don't know where to start

and who should I approach to

 

My "bro" is probably asleep

she is on a Mount KK expedition

 

My "besties" she bode good night to me like

1 hr ago

at least we did have a good talk

for like 1 hour or so

 

My "manager" she is

probably watching a football game

or some other games

 

and it's like

I don't even know

where to start from if

I randomly browse through

the contact list and tell

 

Hey look I need to talk now

Who cares, seriously

 

you gonna repeat that boring story

about your stupid office tales again

you gonna brag about Shawn Yue again

as if you know him like so well in person

 

boring...

boring...

 

okay end of the

self-pillow-talk for tonight

 

people take selfie

I do self-talkie

and the irony part is

 

selfie or self-talkie

they are being uploaded

can't wait to share it

With the whole weird world huh

I know right

 

It's a symptom of

attention seeking

 

i am not a greedy person

all I want is the attention of

someone who likes me

and I equally likes him

 

One day

he reads through

whatever I wrote throughout time

and he still finds me likeable

 

(hi there Baby,

If you are really reading)

 

and that would do

and this one person who would

end my drought of conversation

 

Oh man

i don't know

Sunday is supposed to be that depressing

 

Happy birthday, Steph

in case you don't receive any wishes

that's all you want right

 

and please go to sleep now

rats...

Last night i dreamt that somebody loved me

Stephelle's Kitchen: Cereal Killer

This is an perfect example of

bad publicity is actually good PR

Nestle Cheerios

   

Couple of days ago

the Cheerios FB backlash

which suddenly reminded me of buying one

   

let's summarize the issue

Cheerios came out with the legal term of

if you like the FB page,

you actually give up

your legal right to sue

   

Look, they have 1m likes on FB

hence someone started an

"unlike" drive which kinda hurt

and the snowballed effect of

non fans and organizations which

took this quite seriously

forced them to withdraw the statement

   

Haha interesting right

probably because I did a thesis on

crisis management and social media

these episodes never fail to interest me

   

Back to the story of the cereal killer

okay so I was reminded that

I have never tasted Cheerios

seriously, never ever

   

So I bought one

but I am sure it wouldn't taste bad

1/5 of corn flake

1/5 of rice crisp

1/5 of wheat ring

1/5 of roasted oat

1/5 of barley

   

Wait a minute

how does barley taste like actually

not the barley Asian boil as drink right?

   

Anyway

I still have some cereals actually

like another 1/2 kg?

because I was infected with the

compulsive cereal buying behaviors

not too long ago

   

It all started with this vintage tin

which i can’t resist and

i have missed a few rounds of getting

Kellogg's Cornflake vintage tin can

   

I found a healthier way to munch

Which is to

(i) mix corn flake with

Choc flavour cereal to

balance the sweetness

Corn flake with choco cereal

   

(ii) storing it in an opaque container

See no evil munch no evil

   

(iii) using a measuring cup

so that you can actually

set a limit to how much you eat

Instead of munching straight

from the cereal sea

   

before you know it

500g is gone in days

   

I have never eaten cereal with milk

a munch monster I am

the notorious cereal killer

   

so here’s my review for Cheerios

Erm

letting aside the dog-food-appearance

I actually like the taste of Cheerios

it tastes like Want Want Senbei and

also Corn-rice based Twisties snack

no joke

but of course the healthier version

Cheerios with choco cereal

   

keep calm and munch on

Stephelle's Kitchen: Greek Potato Salad

I secretly enjoy adding Greek yogurt

Into my food because it

greekify whatever I am cooking

like a rebirth

Greek Potato Salad

  

Mashed potato X sweet potato

I somehow trying to reduce

the intake of potato

from daily consumption to

once a week

  

and the substitute is

sweet potato

which contains more nutrient

vitamin B, C, D, iron, mag etc

  

and it's less starchy

moreover higher in fibre

which make it a perfect treat for

weight loss

  

Spending 1 hour to prepare a side dish

that's real crazy

but I don't have any main dish anyway

and it's a Friday

so...

私奔 X LOL婚:只求認真

這男人的

明目張膽

公然調戲

已經到了

一個極點

 

他:怎麼沒帶好吃的餅乾了

我:我姐沒有弄

他:你會不會弄?

我:我負責吃

他:如果你會做飯,就跟我結婚

      因為我只會吃

 

他:你甚麼時候結婚?

我:沒男友,找誰結去

他:跟我啊

我:。。。。

他:我給你介紹男朋友,

       就你跟我結婚吧

 

他:你們華人結婚是不是須要很多錢?

我:是也,挺貴

他:須要多少?

我:至少五萬吧

他:單是男方?

我:有些男女方一起擺酒,

       有些分開。反正華人很複雜,

       我都不要那些

 

他:那你想怎麼弄?

我:去旅行啊

他:跟我結婚吧,

       一萬塊夠了

 

這段對話是承接著的

就在短短3分鐘里

竟然被“求婚”了 4次

 

烘餅做飯也不是不可以

但必需是為我喜歡的人

私奔裸婚也不是不可以

但必需是和我喜歡的人

 

特別認真

在等一個特別的人

非一般認真 X 等一個可能: 特別的人

喜歡 Khalil

這類回歸簡單的作品

 

旋律起伏不大

編曲也不譁众取宠

歌詞更沒有太精致細膩

 

簡單卻動人

或許那才是細水長流的喜歡

 

我一抬頭 就看到你

而我發現 你也在看我

突然覺得自己的抬頭

也是一種幸運

 

特別的人 / 方大同

 

特別的人 / 方大同

作詞:方大同

作曲:方大同

愛一個人或許要慷慨
若只想要被愛
最後沒有了對白
必須有你我的情真
不求計分的平等
總有幸福有心疼
生命的起伏要認可

懂一個人也許要忍耐
要經過了意外
才瞭解所謂的愛
今後的歲月
讓我們一起瞭解
多少天長地久
有幾回細水長流

我們是對方 特別的人
奮不顧身 難捨難分
不是一般人的認真
若只有一天 愛一個人
讓那時間每一刻在倒退
生命中有萬事的可能

你就是我要遇見的 特別的人
懂一個人也許要忍耐
要經過了意外
才瞭解所謂的愛
今後的歲月
讓我們一起瞭解
多少天長地久
有幾回細水長流

我們是對方 特別的人
奮不顧身 難捨難分
不是一般人的認真
若只有一天 愛一個人
讓那時間每一刻在倒退
生命中有萬事的可能

你就是我要遇見的 特別的人
有時候我們都會寂寞
有時也會失敗 怕被淘汰
想去找一個明白
而我曾經多次的等待未來
你何時會來
人山人海 總有你的存在
有你我的愛

我們是對方 特別的人
奮不顧身 難捨難分
不是一般人的認真
若只有一天 愛一個人
讓那時間每一刻在倒退
生命中有萬事的可能
你就是我要遇見的 特別的人

MagBook X With a Hook: MOOK

Japanese magazine is a hazard

for a canvas-tote lover like me

because they have tie-in gift

practically every week

 

i saw it at Taipei

almost tempted to buy one

i don’t read a single Japanese word

yet the pictures of the tie-in bag printed

were clear and big enough for me to see

and the big bulky packaging

*yummy*

 

i don’t read a single Japanese word

that’s right yet

i wouldn’t wanna throw the magazine away

so i would probably end up

hand carrying Japanese magazines

which I bought for the sake of the gift

 

they actually call it a MOOK

“Mooks –- the term was coined as a cross between

a magazine and a book

they physically resemble a magazine

in content and format,

but are designed to stay on the shelves

much longer than an issue of a weekly or monthly magazine,

somewhat like a book.”

 

basically, it eliminates the concept of

independent editorial content altogether.

Devised in 2005 by Tokyo-based Takarajimasha Inc.,

the brand mook typically consists of

a mook entirely dedicated to one brand ––

usually featuring a publication containing

not much more than a catalogue of new items,

but crucially a logoed item for a fashion brand

such as a limited edition tote bag.

 

abd the good news is

i came across sellers on bidding sites which

sell these bags as it is

 

so that’s the first one i spotted

a Fred Perry tote which comes along with their

summer 2011 collection book

unfortunately it’s sold out

Fred Perry 2011 Summer Collection Book   Fred Perrry tote bag 02

 

so i went on to search if

there’s any other seller offering the same item

and i found this

Fred Perry 2010 Autumn Winter Collection Book   Fred Perrry Laurel Mark tote bag

 

this one is on bid

but nobody has placed any bid yet

even the item view was quite pathetic

good one good one

i quickly placed one 

arrgh, i rather prefer if it’s listed under

BUY NOW option instead of bidding

Fred Perry 2010 Autumn Winter Collection Book   Fred Perrry Laurel Mark tote bag 02

 

and i browsed on

this seller actually specializes in

these tie-in gifts

those are the one that i was afraid of

under this heavy illusion, hallucination or compulsion

i would end up clicking “BID” accidentally

 

but now that after a couples of hours

i have rationalized that i don’t actually need them

one thing about Cath Kidston bag is that

it looks good, really good

and it feels good to walk into their stores

it almost feels like home-coming

yet it doesn’t really go with my daily look

but as home decor, yes definitely 

Cath Kidston SPECIAL BRITISH 2012 Spring Summer Issue 02 Cath Kidston SPECIAL BRITISH 2012 Spring Summer Issue 01

 

and this one

a Reindeer tote bag

oh my isn’t it so so cute

i am still contemplating

because i can’t find a solid reason to reject yet

red is not my colour?

vertical tote bag is not ransack-friendly?

D&G 2010 winter tale tote bag (gift of Dolce Gabbana 2010 Autumn winter e mook)D&G 2010 winter tale tote bag (gift of Dolce Gabbana 2010 Autumn winter e mook) 02

 

and the 3rd Fred Perry which is pleading me to

say YES

NO NO.. the grey one is similar

but this one looks good too

 Fred Perry 2010 Summer Collection Book   Fred Perrry tote bag Fred Perry 2010 Summer Collection Book   Fred Perrry tote bag 02

 

after placing my bid for the grey Fred Perry

then the first seller replied my enquiry

yes there will be a restock next Monday

so should i still get this one?

Fred Perry 2011 Summer Collection Book   Fred Perrry tote bag

 

and oops

by the way

i have also placed bid for this

Le Sportsec X Brenda’s Arizona Dream

25th anniversary pouch

which supposedly was a tie-in gift of Sweet magazine

Le SportSac Japan 25th Anniversary Special Collaboration X Brenda Arizona Dream pouch X Sweet magazine Aug 2012 03 Le SportSac Japan 25th Anniversary Special Collaboration X Brenda Arizona Dream  pouch 

i assume Brenda is a fashion blogger

but i am not sure

or maybe a model or fashion designer

(obviously….)

or she could even be all of the above

 

17歳の初来日以来、

モデルのキャリアが始まる。

当初日本と日本語、モデル経験もない彼女は、

自身の努力により、まもなく雑誌JJの

レギュラーモデルとなる。

彼女の人気は、

彼女を外国籍モデル初のJJカバーガールへと導く。

日本語が上達するにつれ、

ブレンダは多くの人気ファッション誌で

活躍するようになる

MORE 、BAILA、MAQUIA、VOCE、anan、ef等

の多くの表紙を飾り、多種多数のTVCF、広告に出演する。

2005年人気ファッションブランドmimi&rogerをたちあげ、

現在同ブランドのクリエイティブディレクターである。

2010年、雑誌MARISOLの

新たなカバー/イメージガールとなる。

現在、東京-ホノルルを行き来しながら活躍中。

 

so you know better about Brenda now?

i supposed

 

just to convince you that

Japanese magazines are hazard to

tote-lover like me

i wonder if the Japanese go to magazine racks to

shop for their tote / pouch / purse /

notebook / phone case and so on and forth

Steady magazine X agnesb Sweet magazine Boujour Pique Famille tote bag Non No Magazine X Peanuts Snoopy Woodstock Tote jan 2013

 

okay now i seriously i want this one

like very seriously

and it’s only 1500 yen

for a 40 pages Peanuts MOOK

and the Peanuts X Bape Kids tote

Snoopy in Seasons Mook - Play Time with Peanuts BAPE Kids Tote Snoopy in Seasons Mook - Play Time with Peanuts BAPE Kids Tote 02SNOOPY in SEASONS -Happy Holidays with PEANUTS Snoopy in Seasons Mook - Halloween edition

p.s.

i have asked my Manager if i should get this one

and she threw back a question:

are you trying to tempt me

Fred Perry 2011 Summer Collection Book   Fred Perrry tote bag

 

hehe yes

the more the merrier

and combined shipping is more eco-friendly

 

i found this website

including the HK titles such as

East Touch, MILK  & New Monday

 

so probably i shall check out the MOOK shelf

during my next visit to Kinokuniya

but i imagine

buying the “fresh” MOOK would cost way more

than buying the off-seasons bags as they are

due to the shipping fees and the “freshness” cost

 

anyway

buying the MOOK afresh or

the off-seasons tie-in bags

all these are

traps traps traps

Stephelle's Kitchen: Red Cabbage

Red or purple cabbage

First time cooking it

Red Cabbage Veggiest Pasta

 

Out there the serving is so little

that I used to believe

because this is really expensive

so any dish with this is

High value added

 

red cabbage, if you are ever reading this 

that's what I feel like telling him

 

Look dude

you dont really

have a distinctive smell or taste

and all you did was to

contaminate my soup into some bloody purple pool

and you ended up looking Bleached

I even have serious doubt that

are you actually a plain white cabbage

who was dyed red or purple

in order to fetch a higher price

and to make a fool of

consumer like me who thought that

you are a classy veggie

High value added huh?

Sorry

I got too carried away

but I kept peeling and peeling

when are you gonna finish

because I m sick of the purple pollution

oops sorry

it's quite obvious that

I wouldn't buy this again

anytime soon in near future

and I started to realize

all of the sudden

cabbage tastes good in coleslaw

simply because of the salad dressing

try eating cabbage as it is

and i will shed tear

 

what's wrong with me today

too much negative energy

Navy X Snoopy: Illustrated by Allen, Lily

celebrities’ lookbooks

have got some amount of newsworthiness

  • trend-setting
  • who they hang out with
  • what did they buy
  • did the children behave well (if any)

 

my all-time favourites would be

(1) the Becks

(2) Miranda Kerr X Orlando X Flynn

(3) Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl

(4) Taylor Swift & BFFs

 

and a couple of days ago

hey Lily Allen

Fay Snoopy Crew-neck Sweater X Lily Allen - 01 Fay Snoopy Crew-neck Sweater X Lily Allen - 04 Fay Snoopy Crew-neck Sweater X Lily Allen - 05 Fay Snoopy Crew-neck Sweater X Lily Allen - 06 Fay Snoopy Crew-neck Sweater X Lily Allen - 07

 

and i tried to google for the sweater

just out of curiosity

no worries

these days they insert the link

right in the news

 

looks like lookbook is a huge business 

and i wouldn’t be surprised if

celebrities have a stylist team to design

what they gonna wear, head to toe

and some other marketing people to

take in endorsement deal

 

just like product placement in TV

and that include even

the beverage they are holding?

the toy of the kiddies?

 

who cares if

the sight is a pleasure for us who behold

and i think this is way more realistic than

some fashion shows which showcase

some futuristic outfits which

you can’t never imagine anyone wearing

in a thousand years down the road
