I Like Bruno Mars



If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea
I'll sail the world to find you
If you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can't see
I'll be the light to guide you

I Like James Joyce

I am liking London-based artist/designer James Joyce's illustrative style - bold colours and clean lines.

I Like Hello Stranger

Watched it when I was in Bangkok a few months back, and now it's coming out in Singapore. Not my usual cup of tea, but I find it really cute somehow and I would watch it again!

I Like Zara

Recently bought this Zara Heron Blouse ($69.90 SGD) and I love it! It has to be the priciest top I've paid for in my entire life (so far). This photo doesn't really do it justice though.

I Like Being Lucky :)

Unlucky people miss chance opportunities because they are too focused on looking for something else. They go to parties intent on finding their perfect partner and so miss opportunities to make good friends. They look through newspapers determined to find certain types of job advertisements and as a result miss other types of jobs. Lucky people are more relaxed and open, and therefore see what is there rather than just what they are looking for.
Go read this interesting article on the psychology of luck.

I Like Valentine - Kina Grannis



It's such a simple song and I just really like how it sounds.

Love, it's a special day
We should celebrate and appreciate
That you and me found something pretty neat
And I know some say this day is arbitrary

But it's a good excuse that I love to use
Baby, I know what to do
Baby, I will love you
I'll love you, I'll love you

Love, I don't need those things
I don't need no ring
I don't need anything
But you with me
'Cause in your company
I feel happy, oh so happy and complete

And it's a good excuse that I love to use
Baby, I know what to do
Baby, I will love you
I'll love you, I'll love you

Yeah, it's a good excuse that I love to use
Baby, I know what to do
Baby, I will love you
I'll love you, I'll love you

So won't you be my honey bee?
Giving me kisses all the time
Be mine, be my Valentine

So won't you be my honey bee?
Giving me sweet kisses all the time
Be mine, be my Valentine

Ohhh, Oh woah, Be my Valentine

I Like Andrew Groves


I am totally in love with I Make Things. Sure sastisfied my penchant for ▲s too.

I Like Pasta

LENAS by MOF
#01-88/89, Bugis Junction, 200 Victoria Street, Singapore 188021
(Right beside Fish & Co.)

Telephone 
(65) 6336 7630

Nearest MRT
(EW12) Bugis MRT

Opening hours
Mon-Thurs : 11.30am - 10:30pm
Fri - Sun : 10.30am - 11.30pm

Snakey Zhi brought me to this place to try out their pasta. Their menu features mouth-watering photos for ALL 30+ different types of pasta. Decisions, decisions! I personally find their pasta quite tasty, portions are really generous and best of all, it's very reasonably priced. Lunch set meal consisting of a main pasta course + salad + drinks will set you back to about $15 - $16.

I Like A Field Journal

I feel a need to share this really lovely blog, A Field Journal. Every image on the site is simply eye candy; the amount of effort put into editing the photos, the styling etc is so apparent... It's just so well done. Enjoy!

I Like Jelle Martens ▲

I cannot explain why, but I just like these seemingly-simple-yet-not-really collages by Belgian artist Jelle Martens. Maybe it's my unexplainable penchant for ▲. xoxo

I Like Concerts (Wooo!) CANCELLED! BOO!

Woohoo! I'm going for a Bodyslam concert. It will be my first ever Thai concert. \m/ Thanks to Euphemia (a new friend, also Thai-crazed), for the invitation. It was very sweet of you!

Edit: Bodyslam concert has been cancelled. WHY?

I Like Desmond's Spirt Of Adventure

My dear friend Desmond has left for China to chase his dreams and we all have no idea when he'll be back. It may be 6 months, 1 year or even more... I'm so proud of him for going forward, doing what many people can only dream of but never dared to do. I feel really happy and damn excited for him! Desmond, I'll miss you! 请保重!

Brian

Mathias

Emily

And while online, we were suddenly making all kinds of weird emoticons (the things silly people do).

I Like Awesome Ideas

What a smart idea (which will probably cost quite abit + take some time to produce) by L'Office Optimiste, spotted on Oh So Beautiful Paper, my new favourite daily read.

View more details about the project here.

I Like MacRitchie Reservoir (Kind Of)

On a fateful morning of 3rd July, I woke up at dawn feeling pretty excited about my trip to MacRitchie Reservoir with the boys, Desmond and Matt. It will be a first-time trip for all 3 of us!

By the time we gathered at Marymount, it was drizzling a little but we decided to go ahead as planned anyway. And according to Matt, "the internet says no rain until late noon". Well, the internet was WRONG and the rain got heavier. For the first 5km, both Matt and I had our umbrellas out and Desmond, his poncho. I admit, I whined through the 10km (or more) trial. Walking in mud, puddles, uneven ground, uphill, in the rain with shoes that are falling apart + soaked socks is just not my thing.

The 2nd part of the trial after the HSBC Treetop Walk was more enjoyable because the rain stopped and we were able to savor the nature (Yo!). We got the view the canopy (main reason why we were there in the first place - Desmond wanted to view the canopy), walked up LOTS of stairs and Desmond and Matt stood at a certain spot for a long time, staring up monkeys' asses while I try to take photos of dragonflies who cannot be bothered by my presence!

By the end of the 4.5 hours journey, I felt a sense of achievement but secretly promise myself this will probably be the last time I go on a 10km hike in the rain with lousy shoes.

I'd Like A New Laptop

Gateway NV59C, S$1,388
15.6-inch
Intel Core i5-430M 2.27GHz
4GB RAM
1GB Nvidia GeForce 320M
640GB Storage

MacBook Pro, S$1,788
13-inch
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz
4GB RAM
1GB Nvidia GeForce 320M
250GB Storage

iMac, S$1,788
21.5-inch
Intel Core 2 Duo 3.06GHz
4GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics
500GB Storage

I am so tempted to get the iMac (BIG screen!), but I know that I won't be able to commit to it. I think a laptop will be more practical for me at this point. Decisions, decisions!

I Like Pavel Fuksa

I really like the vintage-looking set of 178 matchboxes designed by Prague-based designer Pavel Fuksa for this narrative music video. Check out the details of the artwork here.

I Like Rainbow

I Like Fine Little Day/Elizabeth Dunker/Otto

Did I tell you how in love I am with these fantastic wallpaper made by 8-year old Otto, son of Elizabeth Dunker of Fine Little Day. You can buy them at her neat little online shop, Fine Little Day. I'm a regular reader (and fan) of her blog; she takes the most charming photos!
