Finally, my final resolution of 2014 lay broken. Took me 16/52 weeks to miss one of my weekly favourites post. But as with my gym schedule and bringing good attitude to the table, I can always start again today and maybe even make up for it (Probably not the good attitude part.)

:)

Here are two weeks worth of my frock flaunted, food-filled, friendly, fascinating and found.

WEEK16/52 


Favourite Frock: The best I could do on a work night for the Japanese themed Kirin Ichiban launch in KL. 

Oriental Flower Print Dress: Angel Biba
Green and Purple Stone Earrings: Monet
Cobalt Raw Silk Clutch: Russian Market, Cambodia.
Cat Fur Covered Suede-ish Platform Pumps: Tangs


Favourite Food: Tuna Steak at Ril's Bangsar. 

Think the only thing I miss about meat meat steak steak is saying,"Rare enough to bleed," to the waiter. #pescetarian


Favourite Friend(s): Always good to bump into familiar faces at events!
Kea, Evelyn, Weena, Loreal and Lisha were all mini-kimono clad ambassadors for the Kirin Ichiban launch by GAB in Zebra Square.

It's a definite must try, I'd say!
It is Japan's No 1 100% Malt Beer, afterall. 


The Mont Blanc Limited Edition 888 as a tribute to H.E Steinway.

Favourite Fascination: That a pen can cost RM31,000 with a cap made out of 750 solid gold. I can mentally justify it as a reasonable art investment but definitely not as a writing instrument.


Favourite Find: Blooming flowers in pasta jars in my closet room.
J'adore.





WEEK 17/52 



Favourite Frock: Getting 3 inches lopped off after The Met's 2015 campaign photo shoot has renewed my love for my tresses. It's nice really long but it's also kinda nice to be able to fit it all in a selfie sometimes.

Definitely a follicle frock favourite clothes-are-just-so-I'm-not-naked kind of week :)


Favourite Food(s): The Vegetable chick pea burger at Fru-T-Pop is like the best. Broke my 7 day raw vegan fast with it in Jan and it still tastes as good now!

This 100% fruit popsicle vendor/eatery hidden in Hartamas just awes me sometimes. A cake was on available that day and you wouldn't believe....


..It was organic. 
Moist, dense, fragrantly sweet cake with creamy coconut icing topped with fresh passion fruit. Totally warranted an additional cheat image for my favourite food.

*dies of deliciousness*


Favourite Friend: chichongcheng. lol
 Knowing we've been 'favourite friends' for 4 years this Oct kind of leaves me dumb founded. Where does the time go?



Favourite Fascination: Glamorously green digits.

Fingernail - OPI, Don't Mess with the OPI
Toes - Revlon, Rain Forest

Can't a girl get something.. BIGGER? ;)


Favourite Find: My big, new 2" barrel VG Pro curling wand for my new shorter long hair. The smaller and ugly 1.25" Babyliss Pro below has served me a good 6 years btw and I hope this VG will be equally as hardy *fingers crossed*

Won't miss next week, I promise!

Brought my mom to Phuket for her 60th birthday, which happened to fall on the same day as the Thai New Year water festival, Songkran. Here are this weeks favourites, island edition.


Favourite Frock: This Caged Bralette from Cynthia's blog shop (TANKSFOR5) is my current go to innerwear for exposed tops. It just adds so much bad-ass-ery, especially at a beach during a water festival where people generally target girls for wet T shirt thrills.

Nice try, guy who shot me with a giant water gun then water bottle.
Nice try.


Favourite Food: Yam Woonsen Talay and Moo Sub/Glass Noodles Seafood and Pork Salad in super spicy sauce at Baba Soul Food, Sri PanwaPescatarians like me order dishes like this, meat always on the side, for someone else to enjoy. 



Favourite Friend: My mother, 60 years young and I. (25, if you were wondering.)

Glad that we have a relationship now after years without for whatever reasons we've managed to move past because we both decided to be the bigger person. Glad to be able to share these memories with you - Happy birthday!


Favourite Fascination: PILLOWSPRAYS, why have I never heard of you? 
*grabs 10 in Thai Lemongrass and Wild Mint* I will sleep in a spa like trance from today.
Whole salers, Lemongrass, Bang Tao, I will be back.


Favourite Find: A little swing fashioned out of bark at the furthest end of Kamala Beach, past Novotel, under the shade of a giant tree.

How lucky was I to find you.

Kamala beach was lovely and I'm eyeing Surin beach for my next Phuket escapade. Was at Cape Panwa for a wedding last year and Dimps and I did Mai Khao in 2011. You can view the pictures here if fancy strikes you : ) Part 1, Part 2.

"I'm the 1 on the right, Mom. Yes, that's me...."

Favourite Frock: It would be Khoon Hooi's delicious dress, but with the bee hive I'm sporting in this behind the scenes shot of my hair sponsors next ad campaign, the top of my head usurps the crown-ing glory of follicle flock. 


Favourite Food: Finally went to Burger Lab for a tofu burger (Note: There was a que to the door even on a weekday in the down pour!)


Favourite Friend: Buddums, Mister David Yeow, agreed to be one of my 'bridesmaid' should I ever decide marriage is for me. Favourite friend of the week spot came complimentary. 



Favourite Fascination: How it didn't even feel like I was in Langkawi going up the SkyCab on my work recce trip last weekend. Malaysians, the island cable car isn't a tourist gimmick at all and I recommend it highly.



Favourite Find: Found out a model gf, Lu Xanne, just started an jewellery FB page called Elxa. How could I resist supporting a friend?
