Eye of the Tiger

IMG_3749 IMG_3751 IMG_3763 IMG_3738 IMG_3722

The approach I’ve taken to this year’s overwhelming information from school is aptly named after the Rocky soundtrack. I have to make it, and I feel like time has moved past at a glacial pace. It’s been two weeks since I’ve stepped into a whirlwind of what my future life would be like in the form of lectures and practicals. And coincidentally, I happen to have a dress in the cupboard that is fierce enough for this task, haha I kid, I can’t wear this to school if I intend to make a quick getaway from several types of farm animals. Plus I wouldn’t want turd all over this “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee” dress. Such a contradicting piece but yet it makes sense no? I better finish this post up before the next blackout (two so far) occurs! Hope you guys enjoyed the photos. FYI I have a camberwell stall coming up where I intend to sell accessories, bags, shoes and numerous clothing’s from my wardrobe. Be sure to come down and check out on 14th April!

Watching the Ellen Show and typing out this post is so distracting as every few minutes I end up laughing. She is hilarious and entertaining, who else chucks a whole bunch of vegetables into a fruit punch instead of chopping a few leaves off? I love all the work she does for animals. Adopt a pet instead of buying! School is starting soon and I won’t be able to update this blog as often anymore with outfits. But I love how J and I are continually learning new ways to take photos, like the green one at the top. The green haze you see is his attempt at snapping a shot through leaves which resulted in this alluring bamboo forest-esque effect. I’m dying to go traveling or take shots of people and fashion week and scenery and dogs from around the world!!! Count down to the insurmountable amount of days.

State of Rose

Who knew that the west side is more abundant and interesting than I imagined. I always thought it would be industrial parks, acres and acres of empty land, super far from the city but no, the State Rose Garden is just down the road! So for Australia Day, J and I ventured out in the heat to check out the place and boy was it beautiful. It’s what every girl would dream of if we lived in a chateau and could choose what our backyard would faintly resemble. The scent of roses hit you as you step out of the car, in all its glory its a pity it attracts bees and major fat flies too. Walking through the gardens hand in hand, wandering around the mazes was a dream, interjected by occasional hand slaps and spasming actions trying to swish away flies. Hilarious to watch. We’re hoping to go back to see the Werribee Mansion, fingers crossed.

I’m back! I truly apologise for the hiatus I’ve been on, been so busy with many things the past 2 months. I was attached to two separate vet clinics for a month, which was incredible and I learnt so much. Also settled my house move and connecting utilities etc etc, things that come with moving to a new place. That also means I didn’t have time to go dressy dressy and try out all my new buys. But back in Singapore, J and I made time to go to the Botanic Gardens and have a quick shoot in the zen garden. This floaty little white dress with a quirky pop of neon green underneath really intrigues me. It’s sweet yet spunky, kinda like sweet chilli sauce 😛 Now lets get on with the pictures shall we…

Midnight Overalls

I never thought overalls could be glamorous or formal when I started my vet course. I usually adorned navy blue or dustbin-green overalls so that I wouldn’t get dirty out in the farms, but this black beauty had me thinking twice. It could be dressed down with just a white or grey tshirt or dressed up with a formal blouse. And oh my lucky wardrobe, I had this midnight purple silk blouse that paired perfectly with these ASOS gems. Sorta resembles a jewelled scarab beetle doesn’t it? Who doesn’t love how creepy the scarab beetles were in the Mummy movie, woohoo Brendan Fraser. Till next time, have a good weekend everyone while I drown in this monsoon season.

Gasp it’s been ages since I’ve posted, all thanks to exams. But the end is nigh, it will be over on Monday then freedom! On Friday during my exam, my friend commented that I had one of the strangest problems someone encounters during exams. Usually its a tummy ache, memory loss, writer’s block, the table is wobbly (which is usually fixed with paper) yada yada. I however had the sun shining down upon my paper, reflecting all the white so I could barely see what I was writing or reading. Boy did my eyes burn. I had to do the paper with a booklet shielding my paper from above and the other furiously scribbling away.

During periods like these, all you feel like doing is returning to the basics. Black and white can make a pretty good combo (: oreo knows it.

YES first paper down, two more to go. The tragedy and confusion I felt during today’s paper was made up for in an epic proportion of thai food. Green curry chicken, yellow curry crab, seafood tom yum etc etc. Wonder what comfort foods I will come up with for my next few papers. Maybe a cupcake that comes in peach, mint or yellow colours? Well that was what I dressed for when I received my yellow circle skirt in the mail, reminds me of the paper cups that cupcakes come in. I went on a pastel overload, just like what I did with the thai food 😉

And dear Poncho has conjunctivitis, we had to test it with fluorescent stains. The vet mistook a green mark on her nose as a previous staining test but I explained it was because I dropped a highlighter on her nose a few days back. And soon enough, the fluorescent stain from her eye started leaking out her nose and J remarked how this would be an excellent look for trick-or-treating but we’re too old and we missed halloween! A corgi with neon green leaking out her eyes and nose, can you imagine?

Happy Birthday to Me!

Sometimes I really ponder if swot vac is useful because I tend to take it for granted (bad joanna) but I’m always grateful for it. Time is of the essence and I need all the time I can get before exams on Monday. Brain fried… On a lighter note, today is my birthday! Which of course I spent buried in my notes at the library, plus J and I have to nurse Poncho’s infected eye. Remember to give your pets worming tablets and flea/tick protection everyone! Spring is here and Summer is around the corner and all these little buggers are coming out from their hide-holes. Protect your pets! With all these in mind, I more or less forgot my birthday was approaching but Jeff manages to give me little surprises throughout the week!

Monday: most beautiful birthday present ever

Wednesday: strawberry cakes and frangipani tart surprise while studying

Friday: surprise dinner somewhere in crown?

He’s the best (: Hurray! I’m one lucky girl. Will be sure to take lots of peektures tomorrow, wait for the update. In the meantime, the photos above were meant to bring a cheery mindset amidst the dull study period. Bright red and polka dots, kinda reminds you of minnie mouse huh. Back to work!

I am having such a slow day of studying, I have to speed up but there is a never ending amount of pathology. Bones, joints, muscles, cardio, circulatory, endocrine, lymphatics yada yada yada. And Poncho is having the time of her life napping on the couch in various awkward positions like only a dog can, giving weird expressions. By the way, if anyone is interested, please check out my Facebook here! I’m trying to clear out my wardrobe before I move house so I’m selling clothes, shoes and other knick knacks for low prices. It has stuff from quirky circus, charlotte ronson, sports girl, topshop etc.

The above photo are from my backlog, just on the way to church last week when the sun was just at the right angle. I love the rosy blush of terracotta, and this blouse is adorned with bows in the front with a button back. How quaint. Have a good weekend everyone, and all the best studying to those who have upcoming exams!

Spot Is Not Just Another Name for a Dog

I love gardens, maybe you can tell by now from all my past posts but the shape of trees and the colour of the grass just mesmerises me. I especially appreciate the ones in Melbourne because the grass is dry and there’s hardly an ants. Both of which are abundant in the motherland so getting a wet patch on your shorts from sitting is not a great idea. People wonder who is this strange girl who dresses up to walk her dog, yes it’s me, but why not? It’s one of the few times I get to go out and not get blood on my clothes or have to wear covered shoes in case a scalpel blade drops. So here I am, in polka dots! With my room mate Poncho (: In my opinion, there’s always a way to incorporate dots into an outfit. A headband, a pair of shoes, a skirt, shorts, a dress! Hope you like the birds I paired with my outfit, owls (found this necklace at a market!) and lovebirds. Enjoy.
