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) ūüôā

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 ūüôā

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 ūüôā


Until the stars fall from the sky.

i think i’m a bit of a pyromaniac. as i kid i always loved playing with fireworks and sparkles. i thought the way the sparks looks and moved were gorgeous and have always wanted to photograph it. ¬†even now as a supposedly adult, i still love to play with sparkles and watch fireworks. in fact at the end of the year, or during any major festivals, where fireworks would be displayed, that would always be the highlight of my day.

shiny lights

was nearby the twin towers a few days ago, and i happen to have my cam on hand so i decided to snap some shots cause all these bright lights were just begging for photos of them.


in case you miss my face!

excuse my shaking hands of course. that thing is like heavy :O

puppy love.

my daddy got me my birthday present a whole month early. so i decided to test it out with some self portraits and some pictures of my furry babies. also known as my biggest fans. they give me the kind of welcome home, that a celebrity gets from his or her adoring fans.


sometimes i don’t know how i would have survived my down moments without my doggies.


mucho mucho love to my dogs. my babies who always know when is the time to stop jumping around and just sit with me. my babies who lick the tears off my face. and my babies who never fail to put a smile on my face, no matter how mad i was at them just moments before.



sometimes all you need is to take a break, look around and absorb all the beautiful things in your life. because unless you’re in some deep natural disaster shit, theres gotta be something in your life that makes all the shit you’re going through worth it.

thats why you have to keep screaming til they hear you out

things have been really hectic recently. with the starting of my short semester and my uni’s¬†decision¬†to torture us all by pilling loads of work on us and adding the bonus of tight deadlines. basically in my first day back to classes i learnt that i have midterms, thesis proposal, and multiple assignments due in the same week in less than a month away. (i may have mentioned this before) but nonetheless, it’s all gonna end soon, as the due date creeps closer and my days become shorter, i realize maybe i wasn’t as prepared for this as i should have been. but nonetheless because i’m a sucker for punishment, i decided to join some friends in a road trip to penang. the land where cheap food was abundance.












as we piled into the car early in the morning, excited at the prospect of watching the sunrise (well i was excited anyway), our eyes bright, smiles wide; slowly changed to sleepy eyes with frowns on our faces. the sunset came and passed but we didnt notice as we were all snoring softly. pulling an all nighter the night before a road trip was not our best idea, despite our excited intentions. even when we finally reached and visited the first attraction, our smiles were rare and mostly plastered on for pictures sake. yes we were trying to create fake memories. but after our tummy was filled and we entered our room, happily we fell onto  our beds and snoozed for a good few hours, what may have been wasted time to some was well needed to us, for we couldnt go on all exhausted and cranky. what a difference a nap made, for after a few hours, when we all got up, the smiles on our faces were somewhat real and our energy levels were back up again, we were ready to do more eating and exploring what the little town of Penang had to offer.

hills,beaches,fishing ports, dams, temples, we saw it all,¬†amidst¬†a car with a faulty air cond and restaurants with no air cond, we survived and proved we weren’t snobbish city divas who couldn’t handle a bit of heat and hawker food. we didnt step into a single mall, or shop that had air conditioning. during our whole 2 day trip we spent more time at the side of the road or in the car that i usually do in a week.

ever since i’ve been back from Penang, i’ve been hit hard in the head with the amount of work i need to accomplish this week , just to get back on track.

i think i’m having some post exam stress depression or something. it’s like you stressed so much during the whole semester that now that the holidays are here and¬†suddenly¬†i have absolutely nothing to do. its like too extreme a difference and perhaps all this free time is translating into some sort of depression. and pehaps all this free time is just too much time that i spend thinking about things that are making me kinda depressed. like “if the world ended¬†tomorrow, would i die happy?’ and “would anyone care if i suddenly¬†disappeared?’. but really, if i were to die tomorrow, i don’t think i’ll die happy. satisfied maybe, but¬†definitely¬†not happy.

anyway on a lighter note, the weather in KL is being really bipolar. like one day its super hot. then the next day it’s heavy rain and thunder. anyway yesterday was one of those super hot days, so i just threw on a dress and a cropped top over it. short hemline to beat heat but crop top with sleeves cause my shoulders get cold easily. i’m so weird like that, i wear short hemlines but kinda always try to cover us my arms. not¬†cause¬†im insecure about my arms but cause i’m paranoid about my arms getting cold. i know i’m not one of those who get cold easily ( cause i went through a¬†spaghetti¬†strap phase).

Top: Cotton On, Dress: Flea Market, Bag: Miss¬†Selfridge’s, Shoes: Birkenstock

anyway so i wore this outfit and the weather was super hot but then when i got back, a few hours later the sky got darker and darker and ended in really heavy rain.

and now for some random pictures. random meaning i think they look nice and i just wanna post it here but it doesn’t warrant an actual entire post dedicated to it.

i tried on my steve madden heels in my room to see if i should still walk in them, cause i’ve been cheating with platforms for so long that i didn’t know whether i could still walk in high heels. and my pup decided to sniff my shoes and then sleep on them. my feet smell nice i guess.

finally tried ice cream from The Last Polka earlier this month. a few of my friends had been raving about it so when i tried out a restaurant called The Bee and found out they had the ice cream so i tried it. i tried the Mango flavor, common i know. considering they had more interesting flavors, like nutella and milo. but it was a hot day and i felt like eating mango. anyway it was just ok in my opinion.

oh i miss switchfoot. (self explanatory)

last but not least…

my dog has laser eyes! pew pew ūüôā
