Stud Patch

+Grey drape outerwear from Batam.

+Skirt is from a friend.

+DIY detachable studded kneepad leggings.

If you are obsessed with studs and (almost) stud everything you own from bags to jackets to shoes to skirts to pants to jewelleries etc, !puhlease! stop. Studs are not going to stay and studding your stuffs directly like pinning and iron on can ruin your apparels and its irreversible. I came up with detachable studs idea because I have alot of studs at home but they are not real silver which means they will rust with moisture. Obviously they will rust if I send my studded clothes for washing. So, I decided to make detachable studs which is very easy to make. Preferrably for black clothes only. You need:

-Black cloth. Size depending on how big your stud design is.

-Studs obviously

-Velcro. Can be iron ons or sew ons.

-Anything to stick the velcro to your stud patch and your clothes. You can sew it, use fabric glue, iron(if you use iron ons velcro) etc.

Decide on the design of your stud patch. Recently I got really inspired by body shields. So I pinned my studs to the black cloth and when I got the shape I want, the cut the excess. Attach the velcro to your patch and the opposite side of the velcro to your clothes. I attached my velcro on my leggings and my jacket. Here is my jacket with my stud patch

Take it off, send for washing and put it back. Avoid rain. Store your patch in a moisture-free place.

If I could go to space.

William Hartman

William Kenneth Hartmann (born in 1939), is an internationally renowned astronomer, planetary scientist, artist, and writer. He is a member of NASA's Mars Global Surveyor mission team. In 1971-72 he was on the Mariner-9 mission team which first mapped many geological features on Mars. Asteroid number 3341 is named after him in recognition of his planetary research. In 1997 he was the first recipient of the Carl Sagan Medal for Excellence in Public Communication in Planetary Science from the American Astronomical Society, Division for Planetary Sciences. His art work has been featured in many books, magazines, and international exhibits.

Having a dream of travelling to the moon is obviously unattainable and pretty much a premature thought. Well maybe its possible through astral projection but it only involves the spiritual self and takes great mental strength. But if I really got a chance to, I would reach the moon clad in Pam Hogg's power ranger-sci fi suits....

Yeah, add metal knee pads and bigger shoulder pads, a streak of neon green paint across my face and I'm fucking ready for the moon!!!

These are from Its really weird because I don't own a single piece from F21 but today I just feel like browsing the website so at least I won't feel outdated about whats in because there is no such thing as "trend" in Jurassic Park where I lived. I've been in the shop here(Singapore) several times but always leave empty handed. F21 is waayyyyy more affordable than Topshop or whatever shit you can find but maybe its just because I find F21 really messy. Like they have too much of different kinds of apparels and the space is really insufficient to house and display all the clothes properly. The spotlights are too bright and its a really colourful place to be in it hurts my eye. Oh and they're famous for producing replicas, so cheeky. Also I heard many comments that the quality is terrible. Put your $32 dress in the washing machine and you will get HOLES/RIPS/SHREDs/WHATEVER FORM OF SUBTLE DESTRUCTION on your dress like the one Alexander Wang designed and everyone got hyped up but its over now (if you get what I mean).

But browsing thru the net is really an easy and neat business. I am still contemplating on those 4 pieces..... I don't want my F21 to turn into AW really.

BUT!! I really don't mind if they have a replica of

Opening Ceremony Black Lace Up Wedge. Gahhh this looked really comfortable......
Anyway recently I did a small DIY project. I just don't have the time to take photos of it....really busy idling around. But soon they will show up here.
To 2 taggers:
-To the person who asked about the muffin recipe, I will post up another baking post which will include the recipe. So just stay tuned.
-To the person who asked about my blogshop, currently I am not holding any spree and maybe this is for quite sometime. But as soon as I'm starting another spree I will update at this blog.

Wrath makes me fat.

+ Topshop dress is free
+ Faux Leather Jacket is from my blogshop
+ Adidas is bf's.

3 days away from Singapore had resulted me in weight gain. You can see my fat legs thru the leggings. Oh yes my leggings had resurrected from the wardrobe after more than 5 months. Yes I avoided the leggings for 5 months. I guess it has to do some reflection alone after the commotion about leggings are not pants. If leggings are not pants, then how should we wear leggings? Under a dress? Under a long shirt? Layer with a skirt? Don't wear leggings at all?

Want to show the shape of your ass? Show your pantylines? So be it. At least I have something to do in the train other than looking at people's shoe. I'm trying not to sound so pervertic....but I always play the guess-if-she's-wearing-a-thong-or-granny panties game.

F & F

1) Super Mario Shrooms Cupcakes. I made it for a friend's birthday. The chocolate muffins were totally vegan. No eggs, butter and milk. I made it that way to counter the calories in the buttercream icing and marshmellow. It made everyone's heart stop. I calculated that 1 piece of the shroom contains as much calories as a normal person requires per day. I had fun making others fat.

2) WORD. If I'm a boy I would wear these Givenchy's in fact I would wear it now.

Major Scones

Baking had been a MAJOR part of me since 2008. I find baking therapuetic and it calms my nerves. When I'm angry I beat the butter faster than a KitchenAid will do. When I'm sad I bake something really sugary it gives me a cardiac arrest just by looking at it. Its really magical how wheat turns into flour and when mixed with other elements it become something which is more than just edible. Somehow consuming something off your own labour gives you that sense of satisfaction and also joy when you see your friends enjoying your cake. Plus, I don't use any mixer or KitchenAid because I don't believe in machines.
Eating is not just chewing and swallowing to me. I have to know what I'm eating and how it is made. Most of the times I know exactly what are the ingredients in the food when I eat out but sometimes I don't (like KFC or any fast food joint). Hence I will avoid eating stuffs I'm really unsure of its content.
I love Scones. But my first experience with Scones was not a good one. Cafe's scones are too bland and flaky. I mean you're supposed to eat scones with clotted cream and jam but the cafes here are not really authentic about it. And when its machine made it sucks. Scones is a traditional English quick bread. Its lightly sweetened and compliments clotted cream, jam, butter and usually paired with any English teas. Scones have slightly hard/crunchy exterior and is flaky and soft inside. Scones can be plain or flavoured with raisins, cherries, cheese, chocolate chips or any other variations. Today I made mine with Bananas. While typing this I'm on my second piece hehehe. Ok here's the ingredients:

• 3 1/2 cups self-raising flour
• 4 tablespoons sugar
• 1 egg
• 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 4 tablespoons cold butter
• 2 large ripe bananas, cut into small pieces
• 6 tablespoons milk mixed with vanilla

1. Preheat the oven to 200 degree Celcius.
2. Stir together all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
3. Cut in the cold butter.
4. Mixthe bananas and buttermilk together in a small bowl.
5. Add the bananas to the dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.
6. Knead on a lightly floured surface and roll out to about 3/4 inch thickness.
7. Cut into wedges or cut out circles using a biscuit cutter (or a glass).
8. Bake for 20 minutes.

I paired mine with butter. Preferably use Lurpak salted butter.
There you go. Its so easy even idiots can do it. Just saying.

I am from the Moon. This is the truth.

+Military crop jacket from Ebay.

+Dress is free.

+Tartan hoisery from River Island.

Sorry I had to cover my face because it looked very unapologizing. You know when you don't get much sun or enough vitamins or just recovered from fever or too much sleep or too much peanut butter in you. Your skin go haywire and people think you're a junkie.
You can see that my colour coordination sucks. People should stop giving a shit on what they are wearing to appeal others. I usually wear whatever I feel like wearing and flatters the shape of my body and it ended up with clash of colours but I feel happy and comfortable and less boring. Sometimes I wish I understand myself but I really don't. Oh life/brain why are you being so difficult to me?

One part of me being normal is having dinner at Spinelli with Onion tart, hot sauce and some cocoa drink with bf. Tabasco is starting to be my close companion. Second to Wasabi. Next minute you will see me downing a bottle of Tabasco like I'm downing Coke.

I won't/don't shower.

Clockwise: Bvlgari Jasmin Noir (sadly its mine is finishing), lace glove, sequin bodysuit, Nintendo Gameboy, Peanut Butter JellyBean, YSL Manifesto bag, Timberland Urban boots, Lanvin choker, SID ring skull, Antipodium bodysuit, Kiki De Montparnasse Horn Mask.

If I have exactly those things right now I would stick to them and never take anything off which means that I'm not going to shower. Doesn't matter anyway because I had been showering once a day and my beloved Bvlgari noir masks everything according to bf.
I haven't been touching my gameboys for a few months already because 1)its always the same game. 2)I knew of no one who still owns a gameboy to battle Pokemon Yellow Version with me.
I'm not into unicorns. Never in my life. But Kiki's horn mask looked very demonized and fierce you can't miss it.
I've always wished for a pair of Timberland's. Once in the train I saw a girl about 5 years younger than me wearing a pair of Timberland's hunter boots heels and I swear if her family wasn't there I wouldve stalk her home and someway somehow try to get those babies I deserve 100000xtimes more. Fucking shit those images still haunt me. I'm gonna save up for it.

Stuffs I would actually Wear

Ann-Sofie Back being so motherfucking epic. Real vampires(?) on the runway, feathers accessory, obscure spooky graphics.....High end Hot topic eh?

Missoni's reminds me of Japan. Knitted slouch, overlayering, pastel, sakura, Tsumori Chisato-esque prints......... Makes me really comfortable just by looking.

These 2 from Mark Fast are my favorites. The first one look like a really long bullet chain wrapped around her body and the second one look like a bird and at the same time it looked like its made of monkey fur. I think he got inspired by poaching.
