I've been unabashedly repeating my Love, Bonito pieces - the cape, the shorts, the tank dresses, the bohemian blouse, the knit tops, etc. But this is exactly how I like to have my clothes - classic pieces that withstand trends and are there as canvasses for your creativity and style. As Zan aptly puts, these are the ones that stay in your wardrobe.

Most pieces are available for purchase tonight (Mon 25/10) @ 8P.M., you can check out our Facebook Page for more previews ;)

Speaking of the studio, I love love love the space we have now :))
It screams EXPANSION to me everyday!!
Been wanting to upgrade our equipment for the longest time, playing around with different ideas for backdrops, lights, props and such .. Once the budget's approved, I'll get down to it!! :D

Our dear Tus finally collected his bike so it's back to riding for all of us!
Spot my baby; she's the most feminine of all the bikes here ;)
I got her since May when I was taking my class 2 lessons but have officially took her out 5 times since I passed. Haha that's less than an average of once a month :X



This is her, without Termignoni pipes.
She's not exactly the most street cred bike, but she's more than good enough for me. 
For now at least :)

Tampopo @ Taka; missing the A in VMAC.
We miss you Mandy Leong!

Da Paolo Pizza Bar @ Chip Bee

I'm usually a pizza margherita person, but the pizza with black truffles there is DA BOMB!
As with the chocolate cake :)

 Chip Bee is definitely our new haunt cos it's much less crowded than Holland / Dempsey / Town on weekends.
Another new place I've just discovered that's really chill is the bar @ mezza9 at Hyatt Hotel
They serve great martinis & I love the plush chairs!

It was Grandpa's 80th @ Li Bai earlier this month



& Ern's early birthday lunch @ Ippudo SG cos I'll be away on her big TWO-O :(





Dearest baby sis, you will always be as precious as the moon, the earth and the stars are to me.
<3

I'll end with this awfully cute photo of the little terror at home
I think she was pulling a half smile just to entertain Jie.. heh

I promise more updates soon! :)
