CNY: Year of the Horse.

Happy Chinese New Year to all Chinese people on earth! Wishing all abundance of joy, great health and a prosperous new year! 

Note: These photos were taken two weeks ago when I visited Singapore, in front of Mandarin Gallery - Orchard Road to be exact. They always install nice arty decorations here. <3 br="" nbsp="">

Fabulous Friday Finds

A lot has happened in 2013.

Just to name a few: my husband finished his flying school, my husky Lowy's eye worsened due to glaucoma, my dear aunt Lientje Worang Sakaguchi passed away, went traveling to Singapore (again and again) and to Japan, Jonah got his dream job (as a pilot of course) at our flag-carrier national airline, ran my first 5K with Jonah and that I've also grown a lot as a person and more confident than ever of who I am; that I am deeply loved by Jesus. 

Basically there is a lot more to write here and I seriously could turn this into a very long post - but needless to say the year 2013 was unforgettable and life-changing. I know Jonah and I are on the right track and that Jesus holds our future. I learn to take each day at a time and not let tomorrow's worry rob me of today's peace and joy. 

So without further ado, here's some lovely things I found to share with you the first time this year. May  lovely things keep on coming to us all.

16 unique and amazing hotels. My personal favorite is the one in Finland.

Eye Mask DIY

This skirt! Wow.

Time to arrange a trip to Bali and visit Gaya Gelato.

10 questions to ask your mother.

Girls, date a boy who travels! Boys, don't date a girl who travels (unless you can keep up with her)!

Kina Grannis and Zee Avi covering Ingrid Michaelson and Sara Bareilles's Winter Song! They're my favorites, therefore this video is amazing! ((:

Have a great weekend. Toodles! xox

Elie Saab SS2014: Flowy and Sparkling Dresses

You can always count on Elie Saab to create exquisite dresses. Like Zuhair Murad (my other favorite fashion designer), he is a pure fashion genius, he can do no wrong when it comes to designing flowy, floral-ish sparkling dresses. See his complete SS2014 Collection here.

IU - The Red Shoes

She's one of my favorite K-Pop Singers and I especially love her new album Modern Times. Words can't describe how amazing this album is, it encompasses an eclectic mix of my favorite genres: Swing Jazz, Bossanova, Latin Pop, etc. In other words, just my kind of music. 

PS: Here's the music video of her first single, "The Red Shoes", it's a rather long music video. Just a hint for you: the music starts at 01:04. Enjoy!

Gaga for Prada

As much as I love and drool over these Prada brogue shoes, they are hard to find and so pricey. But I guess I can just fantasize about them, can't I? 

PS: My birthday is in 2 months and I also love these, these, these, these, these, and these! ((;

Wanderlust: Hitachi Seaside Park, Japan

Knock, knock!

I'm back! :)

2013 was nothing short of tumultuous for me. It was filled with despair, but also the immense joy of overcoming it. All of that helped pave the way, as hard as it was, for Jonah and I to grow stronger as a married couple. We called 2013 as the year of blessings in disguise. By the end of 2013, everything started to fall into the right places and we are so grateful that God has always been guiding us and protecting us during those challenging moments. And this year, we are also confident that He will continue to rest His favor upon and more years to come. 

Most importantly, I've missed blogging fiercely, am excited to get back to the daily grind, and cannot wait to share every little bit and piece with all of you. I have upwards over a thousand photos from last year (the year when I didn't blog at all), but I'm looking forward to start sharing many things soon! 

But first, because it's still January, I'm wishing you all darlings 365 days of peace within yourselves, fun and genuine people, supreme bliss, good books, create new memories with loved ones and God bless.
