Life through instagram

heres a quick photo update on what i’ve been doing the past few days, featuring some of what i’ve recently posted on instagram. if you aren’t following me you should (@siu_mei) 🙂

i decided to bleach my hair myself cause i only wanted the bottom half to be bleached so it’ll only be noticeable when i tie my hair up so it’ll look like i just have my usual dark hair when i let it down.

bought a new bikini for my upcoming perhentian trip. beach, sun and seas here i come!

sushi for dinner with the boy at Yuzu. we rarely go cause cause although the food there is amazing, the prices are a little steep.

weekly sunday breakfast with the family. we’ve been having american breakfast at different restaurants for the past few weeks cause my brother swore of pork for lent, which eliminates most of the nice chinese breakfasts.

my fringe is long cause I’m trying to grow it out and my dogs hair is long cause i haven’t found the time to groom him myself or send him to the groomers. so it results in the both of us seeing the world through our hair.

self indulgent moment 🙂

started reading the hunger games because the movie looked really good but i always try to read the books first. read the first book, got hooked and then bought the rest of the series.

just my dog looking adorable.

and thats it for now 🙂


first day of cny

Tradition states that one should wear red during chinese new year because red is the color of prosperity and is the emblem of joy. so following tradition i wore a bright red dress during the day and then changed into something more comfortable for dinner at my god mums place that same night

typical of me to forget to the a shot of myself in my red dress due to the morning chaos, mostly enhanced due to my oversleeping as usual.

Dress: Miss Selfridges

at least i remembered to take an outfit shot of my dinner outfit

Top: Bangkok, Jeans: United Colors of Benetton, Belt: Esprit, Shoes: Bangkok.

the best time of the year.

as i sit here facing my iMac, typing out this post i’m listening to Natasha Beddingfields Neon lights, which is one of my favorite songs and in my opinion, a somewhat accurate song to describe my mood right now. listening to my favorite song while write about my favorite time of the year, very appropriate in my opinion. i love chinese new year, it’s better than even christmas and my birthday. it’s that one time of the year where without fail the whole family gathers in someones house and spends the whole day for about 3 days catching up, gambling, eating together and enjoying yourselves.

to me, chinese new year is about being with family whether immediate or extended.

young or old

blood related or not

once a year we meet up, make noise, gamble and enjoy ourselves.

i love my family to bits and i wouldn’t trade them for anything else in the world no matter how much they irritate and infuriate me sometimes.

Accompanied my dad to a dinner held by one of his clients. It was kinda a early Chinese New Year/ End of project dinner. It was just a typical chinese dinner so i didn’t really know what to wear. I didn’t want to turn up under dressed or be too over dressed. But i also wanted to wear the new shoes i bought and i didn’t think it’ll look really nice with jeans so i went with a high waisted skirt and paired it with a simple T shirt. I basically built my outfit around my shoes.

Shirt: Forever 21
Skirt: Zara
Shoes: Lela Rose for Payless

Dancing to a brand new beat.

It’s been so long since i’ve had a proper post but i’ve just been really busy with my last semester, i know classes isn’t really a valid excuse for not blogging but it was my last semester and the classes and assignments were really hectic and time consuming, i was working on my thesis as well as 2 other heavy subjects and a simpler one. So anyway i’m now finally on holiday! Well technically I’m unemployed since I’m no longer a student, but I’m totally freaking out about my results and so i’m not gonna be confident until the results come out next month and its official.

I’m actually kinda excited that i’m actually done with university, not that i know what i want to do with my life. my short term plan is to just chilling and maybe find a part time job for income until my convocation then after that i’ll start looking for a full time job. I really don’t know what to do with my life, it’s like life has always been mapped out, you know you go to school then go to university but now that university is over i have no idea what to do. i guess it’s the end of a chapter in my life and the beginning of another.

Anyway this is what i wore to my last ever uni presentation, its was for a group assignment where we had to form our own talent consultation company and create a training program for future leaders. I actually enjoyed this assignment as its something totally different from my usual psychology assignments. For the presentation, my group decided to have a dress code and wear either black, white or blue because our company logo comprises of those colors.

Skirt: Cotton On, Shoes: Vincci, Bag: Warehouse

i guess since uni is over and i’ve got no plans so hopefully i’ve be back to blogging on a more regular basis.

xoxo 🙂

Puppies at work

Just some adorable pups that were living on the construction site where my dad has a project. I get the feeling that they were really happy living there the way they walked around and following all the workers around
