ultra suave

well the look was contemporary minimalism for celine this spring. normally, i'm not that fond of celine, but this season's collection made me think twice. i would say celine is usually targeted towards the 30-40yr old women, but this time around, this collection is mine! "classy utilitarianism is sexy." what made my eye drag to phoebe philo's celine is the leather. in all styles and colours.



CELINE SPRING 2010 COLLECTION











ps- i adore the second and the last photo.
i would wear these outfits somewhere in italy
with a big floppy hat to the market.

let it fall

balmain. the epitome of the new york party girl. it was disco meets military. the shirts were destroyed and artfully tattered. who knew a ripped t-shirt could look so good??? gold-camouflage-sequins-leather. what a nice combo. already got the leather pants, just need to add something structured on the top. thank you christophe decarnin for appealing to our desires.



BALMAIN SPRING 2010 COLLECTION









light it up

anna molinari sure knows how to attract customers to blumarine. i luv blumarine, because it is always a no-fuss, carefree, easy to wear type of collection. this season it's bang on. the bright, psychedelic colours, tie-dye, hippy dresses... i'll be wearing similar styles very soon.

LDV

leonardo da vinci was a genius. no other way to describe him. yesterday night i went to the vancouver art gallery with lisa and vivian and saw his works of art. i learned so many new things about him.

DID YOU KNOW:

*he wrote backwards from right to left so you could read it as a mirror image, only because he was left-handed. ex. olleh = hello.

*he never intended to keep his research a secret. he was actually trying to make a study book for students and get it published, but was never able to finish.

*he discovered that you can make the neck of a goose or swan sing after it is dead.

*he invented contraptions for driving and flying 500 years ago.

*his sketches for the human body are so intricate and accurate that for the spinal vertebra picture no one else can copy or make a better sketch of it.

*the vitruvian man (the circle around the naked man) was a drawing meant to encompass and decipher the human being and the universe as a whole together.


"It had long since come to my attention
 that people of accomplishment
rarely sat back and let things happen to them.
They went out and happened to things."


"For once you have tasted flight
you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards,
for there you have been and there you will long to return."

-Leonardo Da Vinci.

cat power

"Once a song is recorded, it's taken for granted that that's what the song sounds like. I feel like that's not true. Once you've played the song a thousand times, your life experiences affect the way you perform the song and the way the song actually grows and lives."

"The recording should actually come after - it just seems weird that you record the song and then play it afterwards. I don't know how to feel good about recording. It's strange - it's like trapping ghosts. It's like math. Or trapping the meaning of life. That doesn't really feel right."

cat fight

ok fine. not a cat fight. but close. a sister fight. haha... you know how you guys (oh excuse me, men) wrestle with each other? well this is me and tash's version of brothers wrestling. we just hang out on the floor and do some UFC moves and then cuddle after. (we're weird like that.)







(what a face! i tell ya...)






*i'm currently uploading my favourite bkk videos so i can post them on here soon.
so stay tuned...

at the close of the day



Are you the new person drawn toward me?

To begin with take warning, I am surely far different from what you suppose;

Do you suppose you will find in me your ideal?

Do you think it so easy to have me become your lover?

Do you think the friendship of me would be unalloy'd satisfaction?

Do you think I am trusty and faithful?

Do you see no further than this facade, this smooth and tolerant

manner of me?

Do you suppose yourself advancing on real ground toward a real heroic man?

Have you no thought O dreamer that it may be all maya, illusion?

the kiss
















"if you were falling then i would catch you."

"i love the way you call me baby."

"you take me the way i am."

yeasayer

they put on a good show at commodore. it wasn't that amazing since i don't know all their songs. i like "tightrope." it was interesting nonetheless. their music is experimental, ambient, rock. a crazy mix. i'm always down for new music. me, vivian and tim.
good small group.








"and you think you can solve all your problems by yourself."

"never mind, never mind, never mind, never mind."

"until you just can't give no more."
