that ache.

i am aching all damn over - from the 7km on the treadmill on friday, plus yesterday's kickboxing sesh and ab crunches.. i can't even cough. or sneeze. or laugh too hard for that matter. bah!

trained at the boy's gym on both days:

how's that for a catchy name for a fitness centre? ;)
the place's a stone's throw away from Clarke Quay MRT, just beside the Ministry of Manpower, in a building called 2HR. its a far cry from the commercial gym i work out at... definitely more luxurious and spacious. plus, the machines are spanking new so brownie points for that! not like the gym i frequent which always has its steam room under repair/machines all taken up/grease on the handles of the equipment -.-
they're offering a $68 promo price for a one-month trial membership for a limited period.. don't think you can get that price anywhere else so if you're interested, do head down and check it out :)

on to pictures for the week!

channeling this season's MNG colours on a particular work day.

and wore the sister's ruch dress for elaine's wedding last weekend.
am keeping the multiway jumpsuit for another wedding next weekend.. so many of 'em to attend!

pics from the wedding at humble house. the food was soooooo good!

and so was the company :)

awesome pre-wedding shots.

especially when they involve missypixie! haha! she was wearing Reyes White and rockin' it at the shoot!

ayeee, my friends have all grown up. sniff.

looking forward to angie's next weekend - it sure is gonna be a blast with my G2 girlies in tow ;)
by the way, hugeeee collection tonight babes! spent a looooong time photoshooting and editing the pics so... enjoy!

somewhere only we know.

It has been a loooong crazy week
and i am suffering from burn-out of too many things
going on in my brain. ugh.
And now the most pressing question i have is..
"How do I remove a bulb from a spotlight?"
Totally random but totally important. :(

Haven't blogged for a week so
here is a slew of outfit shots and food pics!

i wore the same colour combi as the BF last friday.
Grey and black, eeks.

sat's outfit for town. Need to fully utilize maxi skirt.

yuzu sorbet. Bittersweet. Like life.

Ya Kun brekkie at the airport at 5plus am.
Its amazing how much I can eat so early in the morning.

brocoli (!!!!) pie from Macs in bkk.

cream puff with extra goodness, pudding :)

milktea custard bun our supplier got us.

friday's outfit. Need to be in shorts
cos unpacking cargo is tough :(

Lastly, i do love Topshop but sometimes,
they really crack me up.

i saw this first, its called MELON tights
and i laughed so hard i had to crawl to sharmie to show her.

then came KIWI.

DRAGON FRUIT, which totally puts me off the fruit forever.

and my personal favourite.

oh gosh, i don't know.
If I am ever having a sucky day at work,
i think i will look at these pics and die laughing.

Lastly, we stocked KISSJANE outlets at citylink & bugis
with TONS of new stuff that are prepped for launch the next 2 weeks.
So if you are in the area, drop by KJ to check those new items out!

much love,

i wanna hold your hand, i wanna hold your hand.

its becoming increasingly hard to dress up, taking into account the madcrazydropitlikeitshot weather. 
went cycling this morning with the g2 girls and i think i might have burnt my shoulders :(

tuesday, to office.

hello, new ring!

wednesday, to office and to stock up at kissjane.
(erm, hello sis, yes i stole your floral corset top!)

thursday, to facial, gym, and meetup with the web designer.
wearing pam in mustard! 
didn't bring this colour in 'cos this was the only piece left so naturally, it belonged to me. heehee.

friday night out!

hello, new clutch!

saturday night movie with the boy and his friends.

when my cousin saw me he asked me why i had strawberries all over my skirt -.-

and that probably sums up my week.
the boy has been so busy at work working 8am to 8pm shifts and by the time we meet he's usually so knackered that we'll do a quick dinner and then head home thereafter - nothing like those long and lazy dinners we used to have when he was still freelancing :( 
glad we managed to squeeze in some time for Pirates last night! and its an entire work day for him again today.. not that im complaining though. took the opportunity to clean up my workstation at home, throwing away tonnes of spoilt stationery, old lecture notes and whatnots - my table and its accompanying drawers have never, ever been so clean and tidy! i'll give it half a year before i mess it up again, haha.

stuff i found during the Big Clean Up:

a written IRC chat between me and my desk partner in secondary three. 
i cannot stop cringing at this, can die!! bbm-ed her immediately and she couldn't stop laughing about it.
i hope she doesn't kill me for putting this up, hahaha.

my primary school report book!
 i used to have such good grades! which.. all went downhill once i entered secondary school.

one of my first few bylines during my internship at a local magazine.
and i wrote about dressing up at the workplace, of course ;)

the namecard which followed me throughout my fourth year in uni. 
i still have a huge stack of these and i don't know what to do with it?!

my FYP, featured on ST. 
kelly asked me a few days ago on what my happiest moments in life were and seriously, this is one of them.

and to top it all off, happiest moment of the week goes to:

not mine la. chey.

my sister got proposed to in santorini!!
 finally, after some 7 years of courtship!
can't help smiling like a twit but im really, really, very happy for them both.
come back quick and tell me the whole story!!
(when i have so many exclamation marks in my blogpost it means i am very excited. make that very, very excited.)

on a related note, attending elaine's wedding dinner tomorrow and i can't quite decide what to wear! 
a low back ruch dress or a multiway full jumpsuit?? helppppp.

none the wiser

i was reading my past diary entries just the other night
(oh yes, i do write diaries in the past, loads of them)
and it appears that a 21year old me then,
probably wont differ much from me now.

I was then going through a breakup with someone
who was going overseas to study and shortly after,
entangled in another relationship with someone
whom i idolized but didn't want to commit.
It took a good 6 months for me to recover from it all.
And in those 6 months, i wrote almost daily,
jotting down everything that happened,
my emotions, analysis, thoughts,
gave myself prep talks and scoldings
and it went on for...forever.

And i had a sentence that went
"if i was older, more mature,
i would know what to do."
When i was reading through my past and the heartaches and breaks that happened,
i thought to myself
"oh gosh kelly, if it was you now,
what would u do?"
And I had no answer.
Probably the same things.
Just in a less obsessive way. Haha.
So thats why, 5 years later, and none the wiser.

I write the best when i am upset,
heartbroken or confused.
Thankfully the entries dried up soon after i met the BF
cos it started becoming repetitive.
'Dear Diary, I am happy today' x 16.

So whoever who is going through some relationship problems now,
all the world-wisely advice i can offer is..
it may seem like crap now, and you probably think you cant go any lower,
well you are right.
But guess what, when you cant get any lower,
survival instinct kicks in, and it just goes up from then on.
If you like someone who doesn't like you back,
its okay. Shit happens.
You can't force a feeling, and nope,
non-stop messaging/stalking or doing nice stuff like sending him food,
drinks, cushions, i don't know what else people send
does not help. One bit.
Guys are relatively simple creatures.
They either like you. Or not.
(yes, this is for YOU out there)
And you should watch He Is Not That Into You.
That tells you quite simply,
if the guy likes you, he will do something, ANYTHING about it.
And if he doesn't, please move on my dear.

There, all the heavy emo stuff of the night,
time to move on to pics!

i swear i wasn't going for the OL look when i did this outfit.

sneak peak of shirt that we are making.

i dont know why the dress looks indecently short here...

and this is today, when i wore my vest as a top again :)
since i seldom smile in pics, here is a super smalleyescheery smile one!

becks starting her 'wayang' makeup

she is SERIOUSLY overdosing on the blusher but yet u cant see
a thing on the site right? :(

much love,
