Black and white is the theme I'm feeling for the coming week! You can say I'm slightly obsessed with drapes at the moment, lighter fabrics are the best at doing it effortlessly. Why hide your chiffon dresses when it can be winter appropriate by layering a sweater over it? Printed scarfs makes the biggest difference to an outfit too, plus they are easy to take off when you're indoor. Good basic to have- stripes in different variations. Happy Friday! x

Right beside the Melbourne city you can find a secluded and exquisite garden with an arty arrangement of flora and fauna. I'm kicking myself for not even stepping into the Royal Botanic Gardens once in my 4 years stay in the city. Visiting on a weekday is a must, you get almost the whole place to yourself with barely anyone around. It's a breath of fresh air. You know how when you get bombarded with something in abundance, you become unimpressed? Now I regret not taking more shots of pretty flowers that I saw. Be sure to bring your camera if you're planning a trip there. Stay warm! x

Ugo flannel shirt from Etoile Isabel Marant, grey tee from H&M, skinny jeans from Zara, Betty bag from Saint Laurent, ankle boots from A.P.C (color Marron Glace)
Hope you caught the sun rays this morning, my uni mate took me to taste some delicious spicy chicken at a Korean restaurant. The sauce is tantalising to the taste buds yet mild enough that I can actually handle it. Should I be ashamed? Despite my Malaysian background, the slightest amount of chilli can make me feel the burn and sweat a bucket. I love adding hints of chilli to spice up some dishes but too much of it is a formulation for torture.

Tom showing us a few things on making spiced rum
Hot Buttered Cocktail
After downing three or four cocktails, I eventually lost track of what ingredients went in which drink. But the night came to an end with this drink I've never had - consisting a mix of warm soy milk, cinnamon, honey, rum and et. cetera... (oops...) served in a blue mug.
Thanks Los Barbudos and Havana Club for the great hospitality. Congrats Hayley for bringing home a bottle of perfectly spiced rum! I'll be back for a laid back weekend to try out the modern African food truck (Jabili's Kitchen) out the back.

Plaids or some call it check, might have just received an open invitation as a classic pattern in my heart. Red is a pop of color that I wouldn't mind wearing occasionally, especially on dull days, isn't it only natural that we reach for something bright?
