I have this urge to write but I don't know what should I write about. I'm trying to be poetic or sound somehow advanced but this is just not the time of week. I'm trying to decide which set of pictures to post but again, I'm in that state of indecisiveness. I actually still have loads of files waiting to be posted but sometimes, I'm not even bothered to touch them. But since I'm in my Spring break, I want to post more often like what I used to do.
I think it's sort of unforgivable when a blogger bails on his/her blog for months with the reason, "I'm too busy with life." There's no good enough reason for me to say why I haven't update this blog in such a long time. So I'll let you judge me.

Not a new wardrobe or anything, just an addition to my old stuff; an old vintage looking skirt from River Island. Since it's spring awakening right here, I'm starting to wear less layers, go bare-legged and also dress more girly than in winter time.
I joked to my friends, "Parents would love the trend currently. Their daughters don't have to dress in mini skirts that show their butt cheeks because knee-length skirts or below-the-knee skirts are so in."
My friend joked back, "Even though the skirt is below the knee, but the top is above the belly button."
My friend and I tried the poster effect on my camera, hence the un-crisp pics. But I still like the results and somehow I like myself in the pictures (not in a narcissistic way, please note) since I looked carefree and not mind-burdened. I still remember these were the days towards summer, we went to fetch some bubble teas after church and I did still have work to do at that time but maybe I chose to forget them for a little while and just had fun. Be in the moment.
One of West End's musicals. But currently Singin' in the Rain has been replaced.
London is so intertwined with the colour red. The bus, telephone box, the palace guards, flag, tube, etc.
This is going to be a long post full of pictures of Birmingham and I, just cause I added a few scenery pics as well. Birmingham is the second largest city in England after London. It has its own uniqueness but personally it's not my cup of tea. I'd still prefer London. The building on the background is Selfridges, in Birmingham, and the architecture is inspired by Paco Rabanne's sequinned dress. Well, the building itself screams Paco Rabanne all over. I really like it though, I wish they would build such thing in London in addition to what seems already a lot of London famous landmarks. Oh these were taken in March 2013, by the way and you can see the snow so you could sum up what kind of country this is. Or what was left of it, at least.

I personally think Burberry make the finest trench coats in the world, the most classic among all trench coats. The fact that Thomas Burberry was the an original designer explains everything. Actually there are two brands who claim on the invention of this particular type of outerwear: Burberry and Aquascutum, both from the UK. However, it might be because I heard about Burberry first, that I always see their trench coats are to die for, especially in earthy colour tone. They are perfect. That's why buying one is such an investment piece. I wouldn't refuse if you buy me a second one. Or a third.
