Throwback Thursday | RIP iPod Classic

So I just saw the boy; main character was playing his iPod in one of ONE OK ROCK's latest music videos and man, I miss mine so much. That's Danny, by the way. It was supposed Danny's 10th birthday this year but I haven't been able to turn it on since last year I actually. 

Honestly, I do miss the days when I can just turn off the phone and listen to music all day while sketching in the studio; trying to sketch is more likely.

Stand out and fit in. Don't lose yourself along the way. You do you and don't let anybody else tells you any different.

Like LINKIN PARK, ONE OK ROCK is another band that I want to grow old with. Well, BTS too for that matter. God, I hope BTS still makes sense when I'm 50. Is that too much to ask? The way RM, Suga and J-Hope make their music is surely going to bring them even further. Are you excited for their comeback?

Signing out!

Motivational Monday | First Impression

I'm pretty sure that you guys must've those moments when you are terribly misunderstood the first time you're meeting someone and that just sets the tone of your interactions for the rest of the meeting and maybe the next few days or months even years after that. But of course, things will be different once you and the person breaks the wall and get to know each other better. 

First impression lasts forever so think about it.

Favourite Friday | Colour

Shirren Lim | at the crossroads ii: disruptions. Shinjuku

At this point, you guys probably have already been noticing that I'm into monochromatic black and white with the accents of grey being the ultimate shades of colour that I love the most. I find it weird when people ask or joke about whether I've read 50 Shades of Grey or not though.

... you might say that I picked this thing up while I was in architecture school. True! I've always love one colour at a time; pink for most of my childhood, orange when I was 16 and purple for most of my twenties but throughout my days back in studio, I wear black; tops, bottoms, bags, with white-coloured shoes, accessories, etc. for most of the time. Now that I'm entering my 30s, I prefer wearing dusty, muted colours over bright ones especially dusty pinks and purples but this year I've also started collecting wearables in turquoise and teals! I've started loving these two colours ever since I watched Black Butler anime several years ago and I just got some tops and makeup with these colours and boy, they're so pretty!

When it comes to huge purchases like cars, gadgets, etc., I'm pretty sure you guys can relate to having difficulty to choose the colour for them; between what's trendy and your ultimate favourite colour because I'll be honest, I only change my smartphone every 2 years being DiGi Postpaid user since 2008. Given the limited choice of free iPhone that comes with my high monthly plan, I went with white iPhone 2G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5S, rose gold for iPhone 6S and iPhone 7 Plus (decided to step back from iPhone 8 or X as the brand discontinued rose gold devices beginning 2018) so finally after 10 years of being loyal to Apple, I've got myself  an Android smartphone. Guess what's the colour?

I'll see you guys on my next post! Take care!

Throwback Thursday | A Cup of Matcha With...

I know lots of people bond over so many different things like books, cars, drinks and for me, it's a cup of matcha. I know some of you might say, not coffee? Well, it's not that I haven't tried going out with some people and bond over cups of coffee but maybe because there are so many reasons why I love matcha; the fact that I always fancy traditional Japanese culture like tea ceremony, flower arrangements even kendo! 

I once picked up a tip from Korean actress that she drinks hibiscus teas to avoid her face being puffy or bloating in the morning but hibiscus tea is a bit hard to get for me compared to Japanese green tea but of course I'd like to indulge myself in it sometime. Maybe a quick trip to Chinese herbal store down at the Gaya Street during the weekend perhaps.

... but this is a throwback post! Almost forgot! So yeah, the above is one of the firsts green tea latte that I had at October Coffee and if I remember well, it was at the Latitud 6 branch. The thing is, everything was pleasant about that cup of latte except that it reminds me of someone that I haven't seen for over a year and actually quite disappointed that the person messed up so much that I had no choice other than to cut ties as friends. 

I haven't been to the cafe since then although I feel a year over would have sufficed to somewhat neutralise the location so I can go and have another cup of the delicious green tea latte at that cafe. Maybe in October?
