The Q & A post

Me on my brother's birthday last Sept.

How many pairs of shoes do you own ?

I counted about 35 pairs in total. But some of them are pretty old and unworn, and I do share some of them with my sister.

How did you become so stylish?

I'm not sure I could call myself stylish really. I guess I just love dressing up since I was a lil girl and I love beautiful things, combining them together just makes me happy. And having a stylish mother who dressed me up in lovely things really helped too:)

Where do you want life to take you?

I hope it leads me to a beautiful, comfortable home and family in the near future because I think that's the most important thing in life! I would also love to travel to more places in the world and experience different cultures from mine. Oh, and I would love to see an aurora one day!

Whats your goal at the moment? and your ultimate life goal?

I've just bought a new dslr and I'll really like to learn how to take better pictures. These past few weeks, I've been looking over at such inspiring photos at flikr that makes me wish I'm a better photographer!

It's probably cheesy and simple, but my ultimate life goal is to be a good wife and mother and to be happy with whatever I'm doing. Wherever I end up, I hope there'll always be songs to sing, poetry to write, books to read, beautiful pictures to be taken and time for daydreaming and laughter in my life.

And where is your dream place to live in if you had a choice ? If you could live anywhere where would it be and why?

Quite a tough question, there are so many beautiful places in the world! I've always had a silly notion of settling down somewhere like New Zealand for a quiet, countryside life. But I've never been there, so I can't really tell how it'll be like! Another place I would love to live in is Paris of course, very cliche I know. But the macaroons, the parks, the history, culture, arts, the tour eiffel, the fashion, architecture, well everything there is like living a dream!

What is your dream career?

This is such a good question because it's something I constantly think of. I'm actually in the banking industry and truthfully am very ill-fitted here, I'm afraid. My dream is to have a little shop selling whimsical clothes, books, shoes, jewelry, and trinkets that are special and unique. Hopefully, I'll have the freedom and flexibility to do so one day:)

What is your favourite book?

Oh, Pride and Prejudice definitely, I love to read it again every year, it's like a ritual. Growing up, I also really loved the Anne of Green Gables series.

What is your favourite song?

Oh too many, one of them is This Love by Cocteau Twins. Another current favourite of mine is Coin Laundry by Lisa Mitchell which is now stuck in my head!

What is your favourite place in the world?

I love being at the beach or an island. I love the carefree feeling and the closeness to nature there, everything just feels more alive! I really should be a beach bum:)

Me at Langkawi island
Who inspires you the most ?
I can't think of any one person! Rather, I would say books! Books that nurture my imagination, bring me to places I can only dream of, that are filled with beautiful words strung together to create a story, they inspire me the most:)

Where do you usually buy your outfits ?
I buy them at the usual places like Zara, Mango, F21, Topshop and Nichii (a local chain store). Nowadays, I also buy a lot from local online stores and blogshops, they have great variety at very reasonable prices.

Style-wise, who would you be for the day and why?
I'll rather like to be Taylor Tomasi for the day because she has the loveliest shade of red hair and a casual flair to her style yet she looks nothing short of amazing!

With that said, I wouldn't mind being Zooey Deschanel for the day as well, she is so very adorable and quirky in her own special way.

Yours is one of my favorite blogs because you seem to have a very distinctive romantic personality and the blog is all about that. Are you also like that in other spheres of your life? If yes, how does it work for you?
Thank you for the thoughtful question! To be really honest, I'm every bit of a romantic in all aspects of my life. It has definitely made me more of a sentimental, quiet, sensitive, daydreamer and imaginative type of person. My difficulties are sometimes in relating to the people around me, p
robably because I have my head above the clouds most of the time, that I find it hard to connect with most people sometimes. They probably think I'm not being a realist. That is why I'm glad I have this blog, it is a form of escape for me from the real world, somewhere I can be wholly myself. A platform for me to express myself in ways I'm probably limited to in other areas of my life. And meeting other bloggers who dream, feel and speak the way I do is truly such heaven!

Thank you so much for all the questions, I had so much fun answering them!
And thank you to all of you who reads my lil blog,
I'm grateful for each and every comment you leave

Oh yea, a little update!
I've booked my flight tickets for next June, we're going to Greece!
And there will be enough time to explore around UK too,
our hearts are set in Cornwall and Bath!
Let me know if you guys have any suggestions:)
(The best part is I didn't even have to choose between Greece and Switzerland,
because bf said we could probably swing by Switzerland the next trip in 2011!)


Hope everyone has a Happy Friday

R. said...

Goodluck with your goals in life. You should try to get a job in these stores who bring in foreign brands to your country. We have that thing here in the Philippines and I have friends who are in that company. They're called Retailers and Merchandisers. They basically "shop" for clothes from other countries for brands like Topshop, RL, etc. These are the ones sold here, what's in and what's hot in fashion.

Sher it's always great to read you (I've missed reading you:-)) but this post is special too! just like you.

"Books that nurture my imagination, bring me to places I can only dream of, that are filled with beautiful words strung together to create a story, they inspire me the most:)" I totally agree with that. And I love it. :-)

I'm so happy you are finally going to Greece next summer (yey!!) and probably to Switz on 2o11.

Oh and you and bf are so cute together. <3

Love & Hugz from Madrid, dear.

i love zooey deschanel! i watched her in 500 days of summer & marveled @ how beautiful she looks! she's got this unique style of her own!

haha have u been to new zealand yet? i've not been there but heard it's quite pretty & definitely very quiet! i think i'm kinda like a contradiction @ times - i love the hustle & bustle of the city and the beautiful city lights, but then i'll also love to laze the afternoon away in a cosy little cottage home and cooking yummy meals for boy in a pretty cottage kitchen! hehe i'm a contradiction arent i? ;P

that song's by Justin Lo (HK singer) n i'm not good @ translating! the direct translation will be "beautiful view"? sounds weird! *laughs*

i'd love to have u stay @ my place! i have a feeling we'll be great frens, chatting abt our dreamy futures, our bfs, the romantic places we wish to visit...! i believe that the way to a man's heart is thru his tummy, so i love love love cooking for boy. Esp soups (his #1 love); so i try to cook that often to make him happy :)

my hsemate told me she cant cook everyday for her bf; it'd drive her mad. for me, i want to! seeing him eat the food i cook makes me feel like a happy little wife :) he has a slight tummy now. haha... urself? will u be able to cook for ur bf everyday?
