La Chambre Verte

Pretty girl weeps in pearly green room,
blood falls from her swollen lip like wine.

-- Christina Rosenvinge "Green Room"


    Being a hobbit (for life, with resigned acceptance), walking pointy-toed in skyhigh heels is an art mastered early in life. I have trod in all kinds of heels at all kinds of altitudes (heel-wise of course), and this pair of glitter stilettos are the most uncomfortable ones I have ever encountered  :(

    Well, in its defense I think it is mighty pretty, despite a little Vegas-esque. It works well with sequinned dresses (which I do not have, tragic!). I will keep it, I guess, as long as I do not have to shop in it, hah!

Pastels and Denim

Mais où sont-elles, les couleurs pastelles,
dans ce navrant cocktail de béton et de métal ?

-- Casey "Premier Rugissement"


    Pastels and denim may sound a tad appalling (perhaps because unsettling images of girly cowboys come to mind), but sometimes with a bit of luck and the right shades, they just may work.

    In other news, I am lovin' eye-catching hair accessories in the summer, be it a hairband chock full of golden glitter that blinds the eyes, or a big blue bow that looks raided from a life-sized doll! ;))

Garden in My Room

There's a garden in my room,
It has apples sweet and ripe.

-- Merril Bainbridge "Garden in My Room"


    I bought this floral maxi dress ages ago and still it does not look dated. Sometimes a boater and some bright wedges are all that it needs for a day of leisurely picnic at the countryside (or in my own backyard as I tend to do).

    It is weekend again, the rain has stopped and I'm trying to decide which outfit to shoot. Trench coat or glittery shoes? (I'm sorry if this sounds terribly unappealing ;) ) Anyway, bon week-end, dears!

On a Lazy Sunday

How much is that doggie in the window (arf, arf)
The one with the waggley tail.

-- Patti Page "Doggy in the Window"

Tomato and mixed green salad with vinaigrette

Poulet cordon bleu


    One of my favourite pastimes is to comb the unknown alleyways of Taipei for secluded little cafés in which to spend a quiet off day. The Café Parisienne is a tiny gem located within walking distance of my alma mater in Gongguan District.

    Sure the place is really rather small, but I did have the loveliest time sipping Mariage Frères in dainty cups, traipsing around with the camera locked obstinately in my hands, and running my fingers through the soft wriggling warmth of ol' Lucky the dog.

    If you are ever in the vicinity, and time is plentiful, a drop-by would certainly be rewarded with quietly joyful moments, in spades.

Sea Foam Summer

This is my first pang of pain and it's poetry to me,
This is my first summer of cycling and it's poetry to me.

-- Rachael Cantu "Summer of Cycling"


    I am utterly glad that lately there has been a steady presence of sea foam green in boutiques and web-stores all around. This is really one of my favourite colours, especially in the warmer months.

    I found this tulle maxi in sea foam green last week, and my mum (she's about the same height as I) and I are sharing this skirt  :)  We both adore this shade of green, it is so much a representation of all that is summer. I am reminded of the Maldives seas, of sherbet ice in lime flavour, of crèmes de menthe on a hot sunny beach.

    Yes, I am dreaming of a vacation in shades of sea foam green! Un joyeux été à tous, mes amis! <3
