S.F.T.D.: POCKETFUL OF SUNSHINE



When piled up with work, there's always time for some early morning release. :)

Have you watched the movie "Easy A" starring Emma Stone? Watch this humorous clip from the film, of her fooling around while singing to the tune of "Pocketful of Sunshine" by Natasha Bedingfield!


Hahaha funny right? 

Here's the entire song below: 


I love how the song pumps you up and makes you feel like nothing can hinder you from reaching your goal.

I got a pocket,
Got a pocket full of sunshine
I got a love an' I know that it's all mine
Oh, oh whoa, oh
Do what you want,
But you never gonna break me,
Sticks an' stones are never gonna shake me
No, oh, whoa oh


I feel so hyped up now. It's back to work for me. :)

Toodles!

GRAND 3-RING MOTORING EVENT


This afternoon, I went to the Grand 3-Ring Motoring Event at SMEX with my Dad, Mom and my brother. It's been awhile since I've been to a car show so it felt great to finally be in one again! 

Though I felt sick all morning, it seemed as if my fever disappeared as soon as I got in. 



People walking about outside the show proper

What a lovely collection! I think its about time my brother brought his childhood collections out  to be appreciated :)

These 90's race cars were never really sought after but after all these years, they're turning into the latest classics.

Ah yes.. Well-curved women, including anime characters, will always be a part of car shows.

This car is so nice to look at! I wonder how it feels to sit inside.....

A lot of toy cars used to have this "flamed"-look on their hoods when I was younger. 

My mom said this car reminds her of Herbie

Yummy Porsche

White on a car will forever look SWEEET! 


2-Door..... *salivating*


Retro...... *salivates further*

Love the wing detail of this car!


Cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute!




To those who have not yet dropped by SMEX or to those who are still thinking of going or not, do drop by! There is much to see for all you car afficionado's out there! I loved how the spread of vintage cars made the event so classy on one side of the hall. I wasn't too happy though about the excessive number of skimpy-cladded women which, seemed to have wowed the crowd more than the products that they were selling..haha

On another note, do take a look at what they have standing by the EXIT sign...
They're already inviting everyone to go back next year! :)


Till next year! :)

Toodles!

S.F.T.D.: MOON RIVER


MOON RIVER
Frank Sinatra

Moon river, wider than a mile
I'm crossin' you in style some day
Old dream maker, you heartbreaker
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way

Two drifters, off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end, waitin' 'round the bend
My huckleberry friend, Moon River, and me

[instrumental-first verse]

Two drifters, off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end, waitin' 'round the bend
My huckleberry friend, Moon River, and me


Happy listening!


Toodles!

RAIN DAY BOOTIES WITH PLUEYS


With the rainy days amidst us, it is officially time to let go of color blocking, bikini's, espadrilles and other Summer-related objects and festivities. Time to hide our stacks of skin-bearing clothes in exchange for thicker, longer pieces of clothing. 

Apart from jackets, sweaters, umbrella's and long-sleeved tops, we worry about the state of our shoes on wet days. Thanks to Plueys, we don't have to worry about what shoes to wear if it suddenly pours outside, having drenched shoes and water reaching our socks. With pretty colors, vibrant designs and interesting details, the usual boring boots can bid us good riddance.

SONG FOR THE DAY: "THE NEXT BIG THING"


THE NEXT BIG THING
FM STATIC


Been listening to this song all day on my ipod. I have it on repeat up to now. I feel so jumpy, jolly and excited for the future just listening to it! 

Everybody put your hands up
Uh huh
Now here you are
With few more friends and a nicer car
But do you really know what the meaning of life is?

You've got the gift to make a wish
Will you ever give in to it to make a difference?


Toodles!

BIRD GOT INKED


After years of trying to come up with a concept for a tattoo, I finally know the theme I want inked onto my skin. While scanning sites on designs for a tattoo, I finally came up with the idea of having small birds drawn. Below are various photos from the internet which inspired my choice of theme:










A special thanks to the lovely sites where these pictures were taken from. :)

Toodles!

PEG FOR WORK WEAR ♥

daily wear pegs 



































Long sleeved tops work best for those who like me, work under the sun a lot.
     There are times when we cannot help but leave our hats and umbrella's at home so putting on
      long sleeves poses as an additional safety factor.
Shawls are love. I love how they complete the look of any outfit. On days when you feel lazy to think
     of what to wear, putting on a shawl is such a quick trick to look planned out.
A generously-spaced Bag for those things you cannot seem to keep away from you: make-up, your pens,
     notebooks, brush, cellphones and wallet is another must-have.
Flat shoes, Belts & Accessories are such fun to use, wear and mix n' match! Also, do color your Nails! :)
