Vivid


Here are some of my favourite photos from the second shoot that I did with Carolyn recently (will upload the third, and final one soon)! I purposely wore basic, winter pieces, as I was focusing more on trying to just complement the beautiful, autumn-esque background.

When I look at my wardrobe, I sometimes feel that it comprises of too much monochrome. And honestly, it gets a little dull. As I was browsing online one night, I decided that I wanted brighter clothes to lighten up my mood, especially if I was to wear it when it is incredibly gloomy outside. Luckily,  I think this sweater satisfies the criteria quite well.

I had a really fun time scouting for locations. It's not actually something that I do often as I am usually in a rush when I shoot my other photos. However, since Carolyn and I had the whole day together, we walked and drove around the area to see what there was to offer. These set of photos were photographed in Stirling. Again, it was my first time here and I immediately fell in love with the little town.

Hope you enjoyed this short entry!

Ginza (銀座) Unley's Wagyu Shabu Shabu Buffet


A while back, I was extremely delighted to be try Ginza Unley's Wagyu, Shabu Shabu Buffet with some friends. (What a mouthful). Indeed, it was a generous buffet, with unlimited oysters, fresh prawns, fresh sashimi, and a lot of matcha ice cream at your service. We were even lucky enough to be presented with a sushi boat (not included in the buffet) from their front kitchen. Too spoilt for choice I'd say.

In case you weren't entirely aware of what "Shabu Shabu" actually meant, by definition, it is a Japanese dish whereby you place thinly sliced beef (such as wagyu) into flavoured, boiled water (evident in these images anyway).

I highly recommend experiencing such a dinner with a few of your friends if you've never had Shabu Shabu before. It's quite fun being able to cook for your own/ your loved ones. Although I am being a little sarcastic as it's not too difficult to place what you want into the broth and wait around for a couple of minutes, right? Then again, that's when the two terms, 'overcooked' and 'undercooked' come into regular play hey... Nevertheless, the overall ambiance, especially if you go during autumn/ winter will always be more delightful and cosy.   

And if you're pondering on the price for this Shabu Shabu + seafood buffet, it is $49.90 per person. Itadakimasu!

Apple Pie

Last week, Carolyn and I agreed upon a set date to shoot up in the Adelaide Hills. For me, the distance to get there from home could be considered as a mini road trip. It was something that I was looking forward to as I do really enjoy driving with great company and awesome tunes blasting in the background.

I did not intentionally plan it, but my outfit ended up colour- coordinating very well with the autumn imagery that we were presented with when we arrived at Mount Lofty Botanical Gardens. It was actually my first time there, and I deeply fell in love with how picturesque the entire garden was. (You'll understand what I mean as you go through this post).

In terms of accessories, especially headwear and eyewear, I have always been really pedantic about the look of each individual item. However, after thorough analysis and comparison to other similar products, I am usually left very satisfied with what I end up with, and these Ray Bans from Vision Direct were exactly that. I've been lusting over the sunglasses for months, and now that they are finally in my hands, don't be surprise to see them on my face quite regularly. In case you're wondering (and if you're actually seeking for a new pair of sunglasses anytime soon), Vision Direct has an extensive collection of designer sunglasses at very competitive prices, especially when compared to other retail outlets. It'll save you a couple of dollars, and you can thank me later. 
Once the glasses are off, you'll most likely be able to see my elongated eye lashes from the application of eyelash extensions. It's something that I've been doing for over six, seven months and I was amazed at how beautiful these lashes appeared on camera. My eyelash extension guru and I have been trialling different eyelash lengths and thickness every four or so weeks, and I am currently loving this set. I forgot what they're called but just send Nhung an email or inbox if you're enquiring about these lashes.

Before I sign off and attempt to start on a new Media assignment about My Sassy Girl, can we all just take a moment to appreciate how talented Carolyn is. Thanks for putting up with photographing my face for hours..!
