Railay Bay, Krabi Guide

this mini krabi travel guide is curated based on my personal experiences and the things we did at railay bay. we did not venture out to krabi town so i'm afraid i'm unable to advice anything on that as we mostly spent our days in krabi by the waters, people watching and admiring the gorgeous scenery. i really hope you will enjoy this travel guide i have curated and feel free to ask me questions! 

Tyrwhitt Afternoon

the above set of images are probably three months overdue, chucked aside in my cluttered desktop but hardly forgotten. this was back in may, where naiise held their pop up store at king george road. the concept of naiise reminds me of the hong kong label - goods of desire, where local "old school" items were given a new life via contemporary adjustments. i certainly do love the quirky items naiise have curated.  in more recent news, i believe they are currently at orchard central till the 24th of august. hashtag go support local!

we then braved the heat and walked over to chye seng huat hardware for brunch. i honestly didn't quite get their cold brew coffee - it taste really weird despite pouring all the milk and sugared syrup given (i don't normally do this for my lattes). does anyone knows why? gosh the inner caffeine addict in me needs to know how to enjoy it. my overall opinions? we'll be back because the crab meat aglio olio was surprisingly good. 

White Summer

oh hi, just me in my new spectacles!

monday's adventure with the boy. we didn't had lessons that day and made plans to photograph our new crisp white sneakers. the concept of a white summer has been going around for awhile now, and i feel pretty left out / bummed that i did not document an outfit about it. perhaps, this will do? new addition to my wardrobe is this loose, casual and dropped shoulder dress shirt number. i accompanied this look with bold, red lips (happy 49th, singapore!) and a minimal matt cube neckpiece (here). like said, marc and i were blessed with new sneakers - he is wearing chuck taylor all star leather (here) and i am wearing jack purcell leather (here) xx 

Gavio Chord Note

i was recently given the opportunity to work with Gavio, and i'll be sharing with you about the brand and the products it carries through a 3 part instalment. Local label Gavio, who was recently awarded the IFA design award and the winner of SPBA promising brands 2012, brings in lifestyle and technology related products such as headphones and travel accessories presented in a variety of colours.
today i'll be featuring the Gavio Chord Note in Progressive Grey. it comes in an environmentally friendly, well designed and nicely packaged tin can, which makes it suitable for gifts that you can grab off the shelf. no more wrecking your brains over nice gifts boxes and what not. also, the specifications pertaining to the product are all printed on the tin can (front and back), thus having the information read easily at a glance. no more flipping through a 10 pt size font user manual! 

Pillow Talk / Nex Converse Opening

photos by marc 

hi guys! i'm back from tokyo, and i'm bound for krabi in a few hours. my schedule has been pretty packed lately - shuffling between work, business meetings and catching up with close friends. i've also a few upcoming projects to share on this blog, which i'm extremely excited about. and yes, i'm  going back to school next monday. boo.

okay so outfit talk first? the name "pillow" was given by my boss because i looked all huggable (just maybe) at work. during the trip, we were introduced to shop at WEGO by a friend. we happen to be at harajuku, and conveniently popped by the store. WEGO is known for what they call as "american vintage" - lots of unicorn, random cartoons and daisy tops. as usual, i will zero in on anything black, grey or white. this 2,500 yen structured grey top was the bomb. one of my best purchases made in tokyo. 

before i end, a big shout out to converse new store at nex shopping mall (#01-11)! i call dips on the jack purcell leather ;-)
