Good times eating strawberry and chocolate chip (non-dairy) ice cream yesterday and makin’ awkward eye contact with old sleazy men outside the House of Condom at Orchard Plaza yesterday. It was blistering hot and the ice cream treat was the best thing ever!

Robbie Williams and friends were pretty damn amazing last night at the 2014 Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix..! The heavy rain made everything a hell lot more fun by the multifold, Robbie belted out an hour of hard hitting notes from the 70s and a coupla of his chart toppers from the 90s - he totally killed it, man. I was front row in a sea of people with Lyanna, singing along and dancing in the mud. The night ended with “I Did It My Way” and “Angels.”

'twas a brilliant night.

Pesta Nukenen / Bario Food Festival

Ahh so much love fer fresh wild veggies! I had a little bit (read: a hell lot!) of everything from raw pineapple shoots to (traditionally) stir-fried ferns to barbecued tapioca to banana bud and ginger flower salad! I’ve also decided that busak luduh kusai with ri baka (ginger flower with deep fried pork skin) is my favorite Kelabit dish. So much flavor and texture and character! (:

One of the mornings I was in Bario, fer breakfast, I had bananas with homemade passion fruit jam… and it was the best thing everrrr!

I haven’t got anything planned fer Christmas yet but going back to Bario seems like a pretty swell idea.

Behold, the beautiful and hardworking women of the Kelabit Highlands!

I was in Bario not too long ago for Pesta Nukenen / Bario Food Festival with MASWings to celebrate food, farming and forest heritage, and experience the beauty and the complexity of the Kelabit culture.

I walked past visiting urbanites (all with so much sophistication and taste) gushing over their handcrafted ceramic jars, brass gongs, beads and their unique peta baa’ rawir - it was all foreign to me… but I feel so at home at the communal dining table and at the fireplace, listening to stories told by the Kelabit elders. Days grew weeks and weeks into months and I am finally back in the city, I’ve collected so much memento - the handed down values, customs, humor, and world views that played a role in shaping the Kelabit’s growing-up environment and their life today.

I spent my week at the home of my host Lucy Bulan and her ever so loving family where I was constantly brimming with joy and gratitude - I quickly learned that the Kelabit people are wonderful storytellers. It is indeed true that if you are sincere and you are keen to listen, people will tell you a lot about their culture and customs and hell, if you’re lucky bastard like me, even some curious anecdote too!

The fact that I never made it to "Fifty Years Of John Waters: How Much Can You Take?" and worship the lord myself makes me weep.

»american psycho« by mimi cabell and jason huff

this book was made by sending the entire text of bret easton ellis’ american psycho between two gmail accounts page by page. we saved the relational ads for each page and added them back into the text as footnotes. in total, we collected over 800 relevant ads for the book. the constellations of footnoted ads throughout these pages retell the story of american psycho in absence of the original text. this retelling reveals gmail’s unpredictable insensitivity to violence, racism, and sex. it serves as a blurry portrait of an algorithm that exists in our everyday communication simultaneously forming a new portrait of the lead character, patrick bateman.

I have no words… my feelings and responses are everywhere and far from where I am. I am appalled, every day, by the dehumanizing effects of natural and artificial features / nature of advertising, human/non-human insensitivities and learned behavior.

HOW DO YOU WEAR YOUR #ZALORAMY CROP TOP?
I’ve long developed a (hopefully) healthy obsession for crop top – the “trend” has come a long way from its late 1990s Spice Girls days – I’d rather not fight against a force that seems pretty much unstoppable! And so, my infatuation fer crop tops is back fer another round! Standing at only 5’1”, it’s a pretty tricky style to pull but ehh, you only die once (read: #yodo) so what the heck, right! I’m also all fer prints and texture but the crop is all about proportion play – it’s a lot like risqué humor, but not really. So, how do you wear your crop top?
Personally, I love pairing my (plain) crops with high-waisted skirts and high-rise short shorts – not a big fan of butt cracks, obv! But lately – though it’s usually my thing – I find myself obsessing over (knee-length) pencil skirts… party on the top, business on the bottom, anyone? I have yet to try this out but it’s def something I’d love to experiment with! I’ve been pretty religious about avoiding (at all costs!) boxy crop tops but I’m all in fer layerings – I’ve been eyeing a coupla denim and (PU) leather jackets that I think will complement my favorite crop tops but I’m also saving up fer a little something-something so I’m not entirely sure! Cue the infamous ‘should I, should I not’ dilemma!
CROP TOP MASH UP!
As if you need another reason to fall head over heels in love with crop tops, but I’ll stress it out anyway fer good measure; crop tops are so freakin’ versatile – the possibility to invent and reinvent different looks is endless!

ROAD TRIPPIN’ VIBES / CASUAL LUXE?
At the moment, I alternate between dressin’ up fer road trips and casual luxe night outs (though the latter is growing less and less as of late, which I am in favor of) – but seriously though, I’m always in my pajamas and the fact that my current freelancing gig allows me to indulge this bad habit… hahaha!
I’m very much into contemporary edge and a hell lot of black and a dash of gold – chains, chronograph and killer heels – the very definition of casual luxe IMO. Other times you can find me spacing out in solids or printed crops paired with acid-washed denim short shorts, t-bar sandal / sneakers and a backpack, always ready fer some random adventures! I’m still not sure what I feel about matching pieces (printed crop top + skirt) but I’m also on the lookout fer overall shorts to pair with a coupla cut out and printed crop tops by Zalora that I’ve fallen in love with – you’re gonna love ‘em! So whatcha waitin’ for?! Go check stuff out!

Big ups to 13 years of pissing each other off, sleepless nights, fun adventures, whirlwind of disagreements and bad decisions, ridiculously long and tear filled Skype calls, funky lunch breaks, camping trips, weird science experiments, strings of awfully demanding texts/phone calls past midnight, etc.! Yer my bestest best friend everrrr! Love ya long time, dwencelestial x
