It’s a pretty-ish place. Unique decor for sure, but the food is ultimately forgettable. Friendly staff and a nice place to chill at 3pm on a weekday where very few other humans are in sight. A table of taitais nomming over brunch, a pair of bffs and that was about it. Also, no wifi for anyone because a previous customer released the wifi password online. What kind of logic? Change the the wifi password daily or something la? So confused. Don’t make your new customers suffer just because of one fool leh. Also, isn’t that something people often do? If anything I’d think it would increase the chances of customers if they knew wifi was readily available. I’d return for the ambience if (and ONLY if) the wifi becomes available. Did I also mention they have several power outlets? Great for project work, a nice quiet place to chill. Or to read a book on your ipad (which makes no sense to me) while it charges I guess? Do give it a try and let me know what dishes you liked!

Oh and plus points for the adorable little flowers in equally tiny beakers. Too cute.

Can I just have myself one fucking day where I don’t have to wake up to stupidity and irrational idiots? JUST. ONE. FUCKING. DAY. For heaven’s sake TSK. Stupid people leaving stupid comments and asking me stupid questions and being so tactless and shitty. Eat a dick la. No, scratch that. EAT AN ENTIRE BAG OF DICKS.

Painted one of my rings with shimmery green nail polish for a whole new look. Did this in the 2 minutes of spare time whilst waiting for my camera battery to charge in between shoots. Sometimes I feel like I have to squeeze in as much life as possible within my (few and far) spare time.

Honestly can’t wait for the day where I can finally wake up and not feel exhausted to my very bones.

P.S – Yes, I am quoting an A1 Song in the title of this post. God damn I’m old.

P.P.S – That song was released in the year 2000.

P.P.P.S – I AM BASICALLY A FOSSIL WTF

Just got these in the mail a few days ago! These are from ASOS and they look sooo cute!! Unforunately, we all must pay a price for cute footwear T_T. These hurt my feettt nooooooooooo but they are so cute so I sacrificed my toes for the sake of vanity. Said toes are obviously not happy.

I tried wearing them with socks, but I guess those were too thick so if felt like they were being suffocated by a small python -_- . Will try these with thinner socks next time. If that doesn’t work then I’ll have to sell these off (boohoowehweh).

On a side note, I never did get round’ to going to Kate Spade Saturday – cue sad face here. No time,  as always. I had a good talk with a good friend, and we came to the conclusion that I should take a break from freelance. The money is good, sure, but I hardly have time to breathe anymore. Monday through Friday I’m always working on freelance, Saturdays & Sundayss are flea days – I hardly even have time to take a shit tsk. What kind of life is it when you have to time your poops (LOL)?? I can survive on Nakedglory alone, but – surely this is obvious – I iz money faced so I’m having a hard time letting go. Will try not to take on more projects, or just complete the ones that I’ve already scheduled, then I guess it’s time to take a break. Maybe a few small projects here and there, but after that, I’m done. At least for a few months. No point in working so hard I can’t enjoy what I’ve worked so hard for, right? #actyigephilosphy

Also, new arrivals that I really, really, really, REALLY love. Am just considering if I should get instocks or open a backorder for this hmm. Also, see this floral top from Dorothy Perkins? Super cute, but I had to order it from the website cause’ the SG stores didn’t have them. My parcel took FOREVER to come and they basically didn’t even bother to read whatever emails I sent them regarding the late parcel, all I got was template replies. THOSE BITCHES! But ALL the tops were chio la so I’m not THAT disgruntled. Super into florals/tropical prints lately, when I last stepped into Bershka & Stradivarius at ION, they just got their new arrivals for the season and EVERYTHING WAS TROPICAL/FLORAL PRINT *__* !?!?! Nearly expired right there and then. At last count I think I have approximately 8 tops and 2 dresses with similar floral-explosion prints. Overkill much? WHY DO I NOT HAVE SELF CONTROL?

On another random side note, I’ve wanted to get my brows done for the LONGEST time but I’ve never even drawn them before so I’m super scared I’ll look, well, shocked/angry/surprised for the rest of my life. Or wayang. I can’t decide which is worse. Gonna try out the Benefit Brow waxing services (they’ll show you how to draw your brows too i think!) so hopefully I won’t noob them to death HAHA. Let you know how it goes .. if I ever find the time to go, that is.

Okay one last side note, my eyebrows damn unkempt now, they’re like the unshaven armpits of my face or something HAHAHAHAHAHAA I shall leave you with that lovely mental image, have a good week ahead y’all HAHAHAHAHA



One of my favorite movies of all time. The last 18 seconds of this clip makes my heart feel heavy, I have no idea why. It’s a mix between happiness and longing. I don’t know la why am I so grossly sappy recently tsk.

The whole of last week, I was down with the flu, fever and a slight cough. Getting sick is one of the worst things that can happen to a workaholic. I needed to rest but I could not come to terms with this. I just kept thinking, “FUCK I REALLY NEED TO KEEP GOING! THERE IS TOO TOO MUCH WORK TO DO” but my head was just pounding like a bongo drum and my body was just aching everywhere. I literally sat on the porcelain throne (a.k.a toilet) and cried tears of utter exhaustion.

Actual train of thought at that point of time:

a. I’m so fucking tired
b. but there is so much work to do!
c. I’m so fucking tired
d. why the fuck must I be sick
e. fucking a lot of work
f. fucking fuck shit fuck
g. boohoo weh weh (LOL not shitting you)
h. FUCK YOU BODY! WHY YOU GET SICK NB!
i. so fucking tired

I’m clearly not a boo-hoo-weh-weh person, but I was just seriously beat down by this. Being sick makes me weepy or something. Freaked the shit out of my boyfriend LOL.

Boyfriend: Why are you crying?? Stomach pain???
Me: Nooooo. *sob sob sob*”
Boyfriend: Then why you cry??
Me: I’m so tireddddd *continues sobbing*
Boyfriend: WTF?!?!

How to be irrational 101. He put me to sleep and said he’d wake me up after a 10 minute nap which turned out to be 4 hours long instead. When I woke up I was soooo pissed off.

Me: YOU SAID YOU’D WAKE ME UP AFTER 10 MINUTES???????
Boyfriend: Do you feel better?
Me: ……… Yes.” *continues pouting irrationally*
Boyfriend: Then don’t complain.
Me: Nabei ):<

Wtf LPPL (stands for Lum Pa Pa Lan, btw, non-hokkien speaking friends) lor. So just grumbled under my breath LOL. But I did feel better la, I shall (very begrudgingly) admit this, at least. Finally dragged my stubborn ass to the doctor, got prescribed a shit ton of meds and TADAH I am currently operating at 92% functionality! Go me!

On a side note, I received an email from a fan (quite uncomfortable with this term, but she called herself that) who wished me well and that made me tear like crazy too. Clearly, I am starting menopause at 25.

I ran multiple fleas this past weekend. Scape (Sat) + Triple One (Sat & Sun) and by 6pm on Sunday, both Lydia and I were fucking shitfaced. I was 95% healed (yes, healed. I am a gamer at heart, deal with it) by Sunday but by the same evening, a fever had returned. Fucking. Sian. But hey, super huat this weekend though. Worth it! Why am I so money-faced lol.

Also, I’ve been working so damn hard, I feel like treating myself to another Kate Spade Saturday bag. I’m trying to decide on one of the following but I’m quite inclined to get both. If a leopard can’t change its spots, a shoppaholic can’t change her spending habits. But at least can change bag HAHAHAHA *dead*.

Kate Spade Saturday Crossbody Bucket Bag in Black

Which one should I get?? I’m damn partial to bucket bags but the A Satchel has such a cute shape! Maybe I’ll just get both LOL. In my defense, I’ve used my current Kate Spade Saturday bag til it’s battered beyond belief. Super out of shape now, so I guess you could say it’s been well used (understatement of the week)? I spent $150 on it, but I’ve definitely used it for more than 150 days so I guess that makes it like $1/day of use HAHAHA quite worth it right?? It’s time for replacement! At least, that’s what I’ll tell myself when I walk into the Kate Spade Saturday boutique LOL. Irrational til the very end, clearly.

Okay gonnna go back to more freelance work, talk to you guys soon !

Today’s been .. colorful to say the least. My designer quit on me (lol) – so the rebranding is fucked and will be at a stalemate until I can find another branding company – and I sent an email to a new online watch shop that’s been poaching on my customers. I tried being as polite as possible, asking them (nicely, mind) to stop going around liking pictures that my customers had tagged as #nakedglory, cause’ it’s just really low behavior. I wasn’t expecting an email response, because what do you actually say to the competition when they call you out on deplorable behavior?

What I got instead, was a snarky little facebook status saying .. the hashtag wasn’t owned by me and it’s a free market – they could do whatever they wanted. Way to go missing the point. I don’t own the hashtag (who can even OWN a hashtag FFS) and have never claimed it as mine. What I’m trying to say is, I have worked my fucking ass off to build Nakedglory from the ground up. I don’t fucking appreciate such shitty and unethical business “tactics”. Don’t even fucking pretend to be like “all we ever did was to browse a particular # & ‘liking’ the user contributed content“.

all we ever did was to browse a particular # & ‘liking’ the user contributed content

all we ever did was to browse a particular # & ‘liking’ the user contributed content

all we ever did was to browse a particular # & ‘liking’ the user contributed content

Can I get a round of applause for the balls on this one?

She literally typed that out. Word for fucking word. THAT OBVIOUSLY MEANS YOU’RE TRYING TO GET USERS TO NOTICE YOU BY LIKING SAID USER CONTRIBUTED CONTENT RIGHT? Which OBVIOUSLY IS POACHING ON MY CUSTOMER BASE, AM I FUCKING RIGHT? Friendly competition is one thing, but poaching on customers? That’s pretty damned fucking low.

Let’s just say this wasn’t in the virtual world. Let’s say, I own a chicken rice store. Would it be okay for another chicken rice store owner to walk up to my customers and say, “Hey I sell chicken rice too! Come on over!“. Would it be okay if them to distribute their own fucking store flyers to my customers right in front of my fucking store? That’s just asking for it, am I fucking right?

So damn grossed out right now. Urgh whatever la I can’t even oaisdjfasoidjf

On a less fucked up note, I found a fucking fabulous supplier today. I’m set til’ the end of the fucking year, plus I have a gorgeous gorgeous line up of products that are going to fucking OWN. I shall end this day on a positive note. One fucking awesome good thing that far outweighs the 2 shitty situations, I’m going to take that as a good sign.

Also, a little something I’m keeping close to heart:

“Be so good they can’t ignore you.”

Damn right. Now everyone’s keeping tabs on my page – a fresh (not the same as the immoral ones above) competitor accidentally followed my personal instagram before hurriedly unfollowing 2 seconds later – they’re trying to keep up and I’m not slowing down. That, at least, gives me some comfort against the torrential rain of new competitors. Have a good night, y’all.

Shot watches on a new background today. Quite liked how they turned out. The launch today sold out insanely fast, I can’t even?! So little pieces are left, miso happy T_T. On a good note, I found 2 new potential suppliers to add to my list today and that makes me even happier. Work feels like it never stops anymore. It’s always on the back (or should I say forefront) of my mind. Right now my room is a hugeass mess of stocks and more stocks. It’s about time I move into a small office space and I’ve been discussing this with Lydia for awhile now. Fingers crossed that this will happen soon enough. If you have any good locations / spaces to recommend, please feel free to drop me a comment <3 ! Emails now come in fast and furious, it's quite hard for me to play catchup especially over the weekends when I'm busy at the flea. Suddenly it's Monday and BOOMZ 100000 emails back in my inbox ROARRRR *pulls hair out*. I've been hiring people here and there to reply my mails, but I think i'll probably need someone full time soonish. Stay close if you're looking for a flexible job okay HAHA! On a random note, my throat is feeling raspy which usually inevitably leads to a fever over the next few days. Gonna spam water and meds; hopefully it can stave off an upcoming bout' of misery. Lately I've been having random bouts of this sinking feeling. I don't think I'm depressed, it's just that sometimes I feel so much pressure to do better; be better somehow? I'm doing my best(ish) but i have so many things to support and I'm really feeling the weight. So. Damn. Tired. I just can't explain it. Need to snap out of this funk zzzzz. Okay I'm gonna go get more freelance work done, ttys!

Totally loving these Auster Decadent Gem And Crystal Earrings In Blue! Grab them on the Foundry & Co website, there’s a ton of damn chio bling to zhng any outfit! So tempted to keep one of everything; there’s gonna be an amazeballs statement collection coming soon, make sure you stay tuned for that :D !


New pineapple print top that I’m completely obsessed with and some vintage watches that are going up this Thursday on Nakedglory. It’s been too long since I picked up my camera and shot things. Nakedglory watches don’t count. It’s more like work than passion now, which is something I feel I have kinda lost.

We needed editorial shots for Zalora’s lookbook, so we hiked out to a large field and basically perspired profusely for about an hour or so. What kind of freaky weather have we been experiencing lately?! Downpours one minute and mind-numbingly scorching heat the next, it’s like the clouds are having menopause or something. Pretty pleased with how most of the shots came out, but rather irritated at the realization of how unfit I’ve become. Standing, climbing things, carrying crates around for the shoot; minimal movement I swear but I was sweating like a pig -_- . Not cool. Literally (HAHA CAUSE IT WAS SO DAMN HOT GET IT?). Okay I shall stop punning around before someone punches me. These are a few of my faves from the shoot, edited them in a more film-esque kinda way and I kinda like it. I really should pick up my camera more often.

Don’t fuck with my system, man.

Whenever I make my way to flea events, I’ll have to call a cab cause’ I have 3 large-ish items to bring around – a foldable trolley, a giant display stand and a giant bag of stock.

They stack like legos; giant baggy on top of stand on top of trolley and I’m ready to go. When a cab comes, I put the bag in the backseat, the stand in the front seat (doesn’t fit in the boot) and bring the folded trolley into the backseat with me after. I’m in the cab in less than a minute flat. It’s a simple, efficient system.

BUT THIS FUCKING CAB DRIVER HAD TO GO FUCK IT ALL UP >:( !

I was opening the back seat to put the bag in, when he came out of the cab and insisted that I put the stand in the boot. Told him it would not fit and that I’d tried many times before. He fucking told me it was IMPOSSIBLE that it couldn’t fit. So I shut my mouth and let him try since he KEPT insisting. Turns out he was impossibly KAYFUCKINGKIANG instead and that it couldn’t fit like I originally fucking said. Fuck off, understand? I asked him to please put it in the front seat. But nooooooo he placed it in the back seat, and tried to get me to put everything else in the boot. NO BITCH, NO. The trolley has no fucking stopper and will roll all over the place which is why I need to get it first, hence it’s always with me in the backseat. I alight, unfold, stack and I’m OUT OF THERE. Stupid fucker just lifted the bag and I tried to tell him not to lift by the straps cause there’s a big hole at the bottom and it would fucking tear, but apparently he’s either deaf or dumb or possibly both and I fucking heard the seam split. DIS BITCH.

I took it from him and shoved it in the backseat before the whole fucking bottom could give out. He then further insisted that I should put the trolley at the back because “I wouldn’t have space to sit.”. WHOSE FUCKING FAULT WOULD THAT BE?? FUCKING told you to put that bitch thing in the front but nooooo I IS MAN I NO LISTEN TO YOUNG GIRL. Well FUCK you la I’m gonna take like 5 fucking mins to alight or something wasting my time leh nabei fuckbrain tsk damn angst. I know it’s like not a lot of time but I really hate it when fuckers like these
are so fucking kaykiang ROAR. Gonna be so fucking mafan later when I alight lor fuck! Die, bitch >:(((( !!!!!!!!

I don’t know why but sometimes I feel so unaccomplished. I know I’ve come so far and yet I feel like … I could be doing more. That there’s more I should be doing that can push me even further; is there such a thing as being too ambitious? I just can’t seem to shake this feeling.

I’m flying off for a break – a proper one – this Sunday. Really need some time away to rethink things, I need to get my priorities straight. It’s also the first time I’m traveling with my boyfriend so I have to admit I’m a little worried. We’ve been together for years, but we never really had the chance to travel. Each trip would get cancelled even with months of prior planning simply because he had work to do. Cue sian face. But hey YAY Phuket! Hopefully nothing crops up between now and the departure date.

Today, I’m also putting down a large sum of money for rebranding. Yes, I know what y’all are thinking. I’m a graphic designer so WHY IN THE SAM HELL am I paying other people to do it?! I feel like I’m just .. too close to my brand, you know? The graphic work I’ve been doing for Nakedglory is just so ~meh~ because .. I guess I’m lazy. And I know it’ll still fly so maybe I never really put in as much effort into Nakedglory graphics as I should. Ironically, when I ask someone else to do it, I expect ridiculously high standards. Nothing seems good enough LOL. I’ve finally found someone whose work I absolutely love, and am hence paying an arm and a leg and 3 babies for work that (fingers crossed) will be stunning. Honestly it’s not that much, in fact it’s pretty cheap in terms of freelance (companies will usually charge $12k and up for branding) so it’s already a fraction of the price, but it still feels like a big amount to me.

Money is such a tricky subject. Can’t live without it, yet you can’t let it run your life. I’m currently paying all the bills in the household + my own insurance + student loans + partially supporting my bf, so it’s … been tough to say the least. But I’m surviving still. Maybe that’s what drives me to keep pushing forward, I want to reach a place where I don’t constantly have money worries on my mind. Here’s hoping that by the end of this year, Nakedglory will explode and take over the internet. Soon, friends.

Okay enough random thoughts, I finally picked up my camera after such a long time, it actually .. feels nice. Loving these vintage yumyums, THAT VEST THO! The print on it is just simply sick. Watch out for more lovely things coming your way! Hmkay gtg prep for tonight’s launch, ttys!
