Red for Valentines

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

When we talk about the color Red, what came up in your mind?
Love? Passion? Intense? Blood? Fire? Excitements?

Yes, Red is a color that gives an impact to people, it’s like you can never not notice the girl who wears red in the crowd, or forget that red dress Bella Hadid wore on the red carpet in Cannes.


And also Taylor Swift classic red lips.


Red can never gets out of fashion, even if you hated red so much, you want it to die, it just never. I’m not a number one fan of the color red ( somehow I actually collected quite an amount of red stuff lol ), but I couldn’t deny that red can never be boring. It’s a really great color to hype up your mood and your style.

Here's some of the style examples:




Okay, if you think wearing too much to wear red, HOW BOUT A RED PHONE?
I’m pretty skeptical when it comes to gadgets, but OPPO R9S has certainly took my heart away, especially when it came out in RED.


Red is one thing, the R9S 16MP Rear camera is insane!


( fact : Sony actually customized a 1/ 2.8 inch sensor exclusive for OPPO.Check it out here. )

Also, a guide on how I would style with a red phone. 



“ Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Valentine’s coming,
This is the perfect gift for you.”

If you love taking pictures, want a sleek designed phone but don’t want to spend 4k on one, I personally think that the OPPO R9S is perfect! Or this could be a perfect Valentines gift! For your girlfriend ( so tag yo bf! Lol ) or you can get it for yourself cuz you need to always love yourself, always celebrate self love! hehe ;P

2017 Resolutions.

Tuesday, January 10, 2017




Second week of 2017, can you believe that? My 2016 was quite a chaos, and I'm quite glad that it's over. I know that we don't always need to wait for a new year to have a fresh new start but seems like 2017 is going great.

A brand new year is like giving you a slap to not repeat the shit last year and actually DO SOMETHING. Move, action, whatever, else it's just another year for you. One thing I really regretted not doing was forgetting to list down my 2016 resolutions, so I could actually look back and see what I did and what I did not, but I did randomly open up a new food place in uptown with my random partners and name it Random Food Store lol. Basically we sell baos & coffee beside the infamous Village Park Nasi Lemak so do drop by! ( follow @buncitbaobar and @onehalf__ on instagram for more stuff! )

Okay back to the topic, I shall list down my 2017 resolutions before I forget about it again.

1. Venture new things.
Like how I decided to open a bao place, that took more than a year to "legitly" open. I would love to do more, learn more and of course, earn more this year 😃  In terms of opening a new business, or to be involve in more collaborations, I just want to do more.

2. Coachella.
I really really want to go Coachella but I'm not sure if I can actually go now because the reselling tickets are crazy expensive. Coachella 2017 line up is too good to be true, it's QUEEN B guys.

3. Body like Gigi.
Okay, Gigi or Kendall's body. I just really wish this year I can get myself involve with fitness as much as I could. Literally need to hypnotise myself to work out as often as I can. I'm quite glad that places like FireStation actually existed, that makes working out extra fun, so hopefully I can get my shit together to get that body.

4. Travel to somewhere I've never been to ( with my boyfriend/family/friends. )
Yep. Would love to sail in Croatia, sky dive in Dubai, hunt for the Northern Lights in Finland/Iceland..etc.. so many things to do, so many places to explore.

5. Create more blog/vlog content. 
I've said this almost every year and yep, it's still in the list lol. I actually bought a Osmo Dji to make my videos look better and I'm actually still learning how to use. Ugh. The struggle is real as we grow older, we tend to learn things slower 😐

6. Meet new people, make new friends around the world. 
I used to be super socially awkward and a slight introvert but I think I'm improving. I really wish to meet more people, make new friends and make conversations. Just because I suck at it, I really need to do it. It's really amazing to talk to people who are passionate in different things.

7. More inspirational posts.
My previous posts on "To those who think they're stupid." hits more than 60k views and I got a lot of thank you comments. I'm really glad that my post can actually help someone and I wish to do more. A huge thank you to those who shared.

I really can't think of more for the moment, so those were the major things I want to achieve this year. I think you guys should do the same thing to! Make a new year resolutions and you will see amazing things happen! Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!



HONG KONG #MAMA2016

Tuesday, January 3, 2017

Can't believe its 2017 already! It's another brand new year but yet I have tons of 2016 leftovers to blog about. I guess I just had to spend more time on editing all the leftovers these few days. 

Here's one of the sponsored trip where me and my bff(s) get to fly all the way to Hong Kong for Mnet Asian Music Awards 2016 back in December! Courtesy of HotelsCombined.com for making it happen! A big thank you to Dorsett Wan Cai for the sponsoring our stay in Hong Kong and also KittieYiYi Collection for the pretty outfits.

To those who think they're stupid.

Monday, November 7, 2016


I wonder how many people out there who tend to think they're too stupid to do so much for someone. I think it's pretty common to feel stupid / being used / taken for granted as people nowadays are becoming less appreciative and more calculative. Who to blame? The people around us? The society? The world? I wouldn't know.

I'm no saint but here's one thing that I know, NEVER FEEL SORRY FOR GIVING. 
Unless giving is your way of asking for something. No doubt we all have expectations towards people we care, and we'll get disappointed when things don't turn out the way you expected, but ask yourself, are you giving because you're asking for something? Or you're giving because you can?

When you are giving with your heart, because you can and you care, you are nothing less than greatness. Giving is an luxurious act and only the poor minded ones take it for granted. There's nothing stupid about giving, only stupid people who don't know how to appreciate. 

People make mistakes, getting used to kindness, taking things for granted, but it'll hit them when one day they realise they're missing out something. ( Coming from a person who been there done that. ) Maybe not right away, but it definitely will or even better, you might be the person who taught them to become a better person. Don't blame them for being selfish and unappreciative, because you do not need any negativity to bring you down. You need to learn how to outgrow them, and never turn yourself to be like them because they are stupid and you don't want to be stupid. Forgive them and move on.

Never ever blame yourself for doing good,
Never ever call yourself stupid for doing so.
Be proud of yourself for having a big heart to give and forgive.
Thank yourself.
Thank you for your existence, even if you think you're small and unimportant,
you're certainly important to the world, for spreading kindness from people like you. xx.


SUMMER IN PARIS WITH MY BFF.

Wednesday, November 2, 2016



Back in June, Daphne and I went for a really spontaneous trip to the UK to catch Coldplay and we thought that since we're in UK, why not make a short trip to somewhere near (europe) ? We were torn between Amsterdam and Paris. But we end up choosing Paris cuz seems like two girls to Amsterdam might go wrong... Well, I've been to Paris two years ago with my current lover *blush* but I guess it'll be a total different feeling to travel with your best friend. Daph hasn't been to Europe, so it's kinda my role to make sure she enjoyed Paris. 

It's my second time to Paris, this time, we took Rail Europe from London which cost us about 150 Euros per person. I remember the last time I took a flight, almost the same price but I personally think that taking train is more convenient. I basically did all the booking cuz Im the best friend ever lolll. 


Anway here's a few tips on travelling with your bestfriend! 

1. PICK THE NICEST AIRBNB STAY.

I've saved tons of nice Airbnb stays in Paris and I think it's a great idea to stay like a Parisian. First of all, it's cheaper compared to most hotels, even better, you can find really unique stays. Due to fashion week, most of the nice ones were taken and some of the prices went higher. I'm glad we found one perfect stay! It's exactly like the pictures shown on Airbnb listing. We didn't get to meet our host Stephanie but she is kind enough to offer us a bottle of red wine as a welcome gift ( yes we gracefully accepted her gift lolll. ) One downside about Parisian flats is they mostly don't have lifts, only stairs, and we are on level 3, I'm glad that we only have our handcarries for 2 nights.

2.  TOURIST GOT TO DO WHAT TOURIST GOT TO DO.
We made it to most landmarks, it was super hot in the afternoon and tbh, we can do more pictures if I wasn't having migraines due to the heat. Anyway, Tip is, take photos in every landmarks, don't be shy, you're in the other side of the world with your best friend, and you know that photograph is the only matter to keep your memories. Take selfies together, pictures of each other, and of course, do it in a fashionable way. 





( trust me I have like 300 pictures of me walking back and forth in front of Tour Eiffel  lololll. )



Mommarte Hill's view. 




3.  VISIT HIPSTER CAFES! 
It's funny how we didn't have any french food during our trip except for some Pierre Hermé macarons but we certainly did go to some of the coolest cafes in Paris.

Nanashi 
Address: 57 Rue Charlot, 75003 Paris, France
- I guess it's one of the cool kids hang out place

Hollybelly 
Address: 19 Rue Lucien Sampaix, 75010 Paris, France
- Famous for their pancakes! Go in the morning cuz they only serve pancakes before 12pm, I had it two years ago, sadly this time Daph didn't get to taste them :/

Oggi
Address: 63 Rue Lepic, 75018 Paris, France
-  Italian, super big portion and it's good!







End up, Daphne wasn't a big fan of Paris cuz some of the Parisian we met were quite anal, but I guess we did had a great time. Met a nice woman who brought us to her fashion exhibition while taking UberPool, bump into our KL friends who are there for their fashion showcase, passed by Kanye's Pablo pop-up store and didn't buy shit cuz the line was massive and also made it to most of Paris' landmarks. 

I think it's really important to know who are you travelling with. It's great if you and your best friend have the same interest and both of you should be appreciative on the effort to travel together. Try to plan ahead on places to go, and make sure you both get to go places you both want to. Keep calm and have fun together!!
