dong dong chiang!

how was your cny, peeps? :)

mine was nothing short of quality family time, feasting, gambling, and alcohol.

pre-cny drinks at boiler with the sistership and friends!
in my new favourite romper.
doesn't matter that the boy thinks it looks like pyjamas -.-

oiling our stomachs before the onset of mister johnnie ;)

dajie and her bestie

me and van with newfound drinking kaki emily

fun, fun night. yay to sisters and girlfriends!

cny eve - river angpow with the folks.

then it was the Official lunar new year!
spent the first day in a blur - catching up, playing cards, entertaining the kids - so much so that we only had time to take photos at night when we returned home.

third CNY with baby K! how time files man.

third CNY with the boy as well :)

with dearest momsie!

and the one whom i share a room with.

the next generation of cuzzies - so cute!!

and us, who've aged :(

spent the rest of the night playing drinking games with my dad's age-old martell.. even dad wasn't spared. haha! we waited for baby K to get to sleep before we headed out for a late night movie with the cousins.
just like the old times, i like :)

CNY day two.
thank god i didn't meet kel 'cos we'd both look like twins -.-
(white lace dress + Mila Black clutch!)

the adults were all hogging the mahjong tables and the kids were all asleep so we snuck out for some ice cream!

i win hands down at scariest face. confirm.

ice cream chefs - knew the owners from my FYP and i dare say their ice cream's pretty rad!

went back to office on the third day to settle outstanding mails and had our AGM (ahem, ahem) yesterday to plan the year's outlook for the brand... feel free to hit us with any suggestions/constructive feedback so that we can soar to greater heights this year yea! :)

can't wait for more mj/steamboat parties/ktv seshs/louhei this weekend and next with family and friends, all in the name of the festivities! 
9 more days to the end of CNY... till then, enjoy!

somemore CNY please?

this year's CNY days are too weird.
Monday, Tuesday and wham bam, its work day.
Sighs. So not in the mood to work.
4 rounds of mahjong again, anyone?

backlog of trigger happy pics from last week:

there is no way macaroons can look ugly, really.

my very expensive $10 mushroom soup.

blueberries pancakes thats are STUFFED, STUFFED full of blueberries.

also got LORRAINE in black, haha.

nothing to do in office, so we curl hair. -__-

tumble of curls!

at our first meetup at RC macs.

this is ah girl being very paisei cos she cheered really loudly
and held up her paper like a bingo winner simply cos her list of meetup people all arrived first.

wore AMANDA for the second meetup - must stick to MP theme. Haha.

and then...its CNY!!!
i like CNY more than Christmas, i can't quite say why
but the atmosphere is all different.

my very bright red nephews.

hello, hubby.

full lace dress! coming up soon for Vday :)

the gold zip back detail.

and lastly...

sneak peek of our EMMA bib dress!

can't wait to launch it, i am dithering between white and peach :(

much love,

please press play.

epic week.

kel's wedding, a throbbing head the day after from a culmination of wine + beer + whiskey, frantic rush to grab our new stocks and shoot them for the last Spring collection for the month, then it was packety pack pack, stocking up here and there, and meeting up with some customers to get their festive wear for the season :)

i kinda OD-ed on my CNY outfits this year :\ got myself Rae Plum, two maroon dresses and a lace shift from the zara sale - decided it wasn't enough so i blew the rest of my budget at Forever New with another four items to boot. eeeeek!
ended up selling off one of the pieces to my sister, wahahaha, i guess that's what sisters are for ;)

some outfits to share:

me in Tish Grey!

new bling shoes for the new year!

dug out this really old work dress... sometimes i do miss corporate wear, haha.

got Mila clutch in Camel as well as Black!

love how roomy it is.. i can actually bring my netbook home in this clutch y'know?
randomly, am proud to announce that i'm keeping my 2012 resolution of decluttering my bag... friends can testify to how much junk i bring around because of that dreaded 3 words - "just in case". i used to lug around two wallets, one keypouch, one camera pouch, my FULL makeup pouch, tissues, wet tissues, umbrella, waterbottle, sunnies, organiser, pens, extra pens, and any other "just in case" stupid shit that makes my bag weigh about 5kg. no kidding.

tadahhh look at the stuff i carry now! i can finally carry a clutch on a daily basis :D

wore Lorraine Black to the meetup yesterday! :)

if you don't already know.. Tangerine's gonna be the next "in" colour so be prepared to stock up on this shade! love how the colour just pops.

digressing to some leftover pics from kel's wedding - we were rushing to and fro the entire day so didn't manage to get many pics by ourselves. these will do for now till the official photos come in!

i think me and chang can be the next papaya sisters or something.

and lastly...

im lovin' my CNY nails! 
may it bring me luck during mahjong/blackjack/whateverCNYgames.
can't wait to have a proper week of rest come CNY.. hope you girls will have a fantastic festive season too!

many xoxo,
