up


dear diary,

just saw Up the movie, cutest movie of the year. The 'dead wife' in the movie reminded me of myself and my own enthusiasm for adventure. If i could travel the world in my house floated by thousands of helium balloons, i'd just wanna leave above the clouds forever and a day.

for your entertainment


dear diary,

adam lambert is beginning to annoy me
. Yes, i love the bitchy attitude but not when it's faked. He's taking things a little too far and trying a little too hard. If you wanna get BJ-ed on stage, obviously national tv ain't the place.

But i gotta say i love the makeup on his cover, sensational! ;)

cyd jouny


dear diary,

I am a sucker for sneaker-meet-stiletto boots, and I have found THE designer for it and quite possibly the original maker who released the first of its kind in 1995. Meet french designer, Cyd Jouny. I discovered him thanks to this book by Linda O'Keeffe (where you'll find all you need to know about the history of ladies' shoes).

In it is another, rare design I am now going to make it my 'holy grail'. I couldn't find a pic of it via google, so i'll scan it when i ain't lazy. Meanwhile, i invite you to drool over this piece of gorgeousness with me.

me, the undomestic goddess

dear diary,

I LOVED THIS BOOK! The reason I picked it up would be obvious - I am so undomestic it's not even funny but it was nice that the gal in this book was far worse. Heck, maybe I ain't all that bad after all.

Writer Sophie Kinsella definitely got me crackin' - a must read for other goddesses like me! ;)



p/s: Just discovered the movie's gonna be out next year. Awesome!

dear diary,

Check out my Q&A with Fifi on this awesome blog, Previously Owned.

+ this lady blogger Fashion X K8 left this comment;

"Incredible interview Fi, I actually watched the MTV show Styl'd once and distinctly remember liking the music. She definitely has an amazing Santogold-esque way of styling and viewing personal style which is wonderful to see in a young 'electro' pop star." - K8

j.k. rowling


dear diary,

At my age, Joanne Kathleen Rowling has struggled through a lot, mostly with her personal life then, in order to get to where she is today. Salute!

"Joanne was in an emotional whirldwind. She had just turned twenty-six. She was once again out of work. The relationship with her boyfriend once again seemed to be going nowhere. And she was in a constantly saddened state because of the death of her mother.

The only real joy in her life was Harry Potter.

She had continued to work diligently on the book, with boxes overflowing with ideas, names, and fragments of stories. Joanne was feeling confident in what she had jotted down and began seriously contemplating writing the novel. But she was town between living out her dream of a life dedicated to writing and the guilt she was feeling at not being like everyone else."
- Marc Shapiro (Author of J.K. Rowling, The Wizard Behind Harry Potter)


... what wasn't mentioned there is that, on top of all that, she had a daughter to take care of. A lot changed for me when I finished reading this book few months ago. Not because it was the best writing in the world, but because we thought the person behind Harry Potter must be one hell of a man. But it wasn't, it's one hell of a WOMAN.

this is it ♥

dear diary,

I found out about his death in the most bizarre way - it was seconds after i finished my first show in berlin during my tour. I was catching up on my breath, all sweaty and excited. My friend came running and shouted at the top of his lungs 'Michael Jackson died!', and i thought he meant the show was SO good that MJ died so i laughed and said thanks. And then, it wasn't funny.

I didn't cry and haven't really been hit by his absence until today when i saw the documentary. Like most of my peers, i grew up to his music and know every 'woo' and 'hee hee's in his songs. I guess a lot of people think he's a freak, and unlike most people, he is genuine and i feel that i understand where he's coming from. He chose the life he lived, and people see that wanting to be legendary as a selfish thing. When in fact, it's truly selfless. It's not always about the money and fame, you know. Michael could've lead a completely different life but had he done so, we would've not been able to enjoy his music, his vision, his greatness. Sadly, in doing so it seemed as tho he didn't find the happiness other people enjoy like a happy childhood and a happy marriage. I find it scary that amazing people like Oprah, Madonna and MJ seem to have that similarity and i wonder why.

I wonder what thoughts he had at night before he goes to sleep; what bothered him and what kept him happy. I wonder if he kept a diary like I do. I wonder why he still felt insecure when he is who he is. But maybe, it is because of all this pressure that he's had to live with that makes him second to none. Most of all, i love that even at 50 he's still a kid at heart. So, yup, I went to the cinema all excited to watch him in action and was prepared to be inspired - but when i left, it was with great sadness and a heavy heart.\\


In Our Darkest Hour
In My Deepest Despair
Will You Still Care?
Will You Be There?
In My Trials
And My Tribulations
Through Our Doubts
And Frustrations
In My Violence
In My Turbulence
Through My Fear
And My Confessions
In My Anguish And My Pain
Through My Joy And My Sorrow
In The Promise Of Another Tomorrow
I'll Never Let You Part

Ze! on Liberating Style

dear diary,

I'm featured on LS (an American music and fashion online magazine) this month next to Black Luna Vintage, Shandra Jade, Alyona V, Dushky and more.


"Supercharged lyrics and colours are what make up Ze!, an electropop singer originally from Kuala Lumpur. With hit tracks like 'I Am Glam' and 'Boys I Like' she brings a loud, smooth and above all glossy sound to the pop world. Not to be overlooked or underestimated Ze!'s style is a full force of zebra print, hot pink hues and with fashion forward styling. LS had to chat with her!" - Angela Clay.

sometimes, it's nice to be naive

dear diary,
a little cheesiness once in awhile won't hurt, right? Look at how stunning Whitney was... and still is.


I know it's been some time
But there's something on my mind
You see I haven't been the same
Since that cold November day
We said we needed space
But all we found was an empty place
And the only things I learned
Is that I need you desperately
So here I am
And can you please tell me

Where do broken hearts go
Can they find their way home
Back to the open arms
Of a love that's waiting there
And if somebody loves you
Won't they always love you
I look in your eyes
And I know that you still care for me

I've been around enough to know
That dreams don't turn to gold
And that there is no easy way
No you just can't run away
And what we had was so much more
Than we ever had before
And no matter how I try
You're always on my mind

Ze! interview on Voize


dear diary,

My interview with Charlene is out on Voize today;

"Ze! started gigging 10 years ago, as a rapper in an all-girl RnB group who have always idolised the female rapper called Left Eye from the female hip hop trio, TLC. After the group disbanded, she went solo and experimented with different genres of music and was looking for THE sound that would fit her. It wasn’t until she met her current producer, Ruben Debusschere, that she discovered dance music about 4 or 5 years ago. Ze’s new songs “I AM GLAM” and “CANDY” has just been picked up by MTV for their new show STYL’D – which first episode had just been premiered last Sunday! Her talented sister has also just won 3rd place at a DJ mixing championship. Need to know more about this spunky and talented individual? Then continue on reading the exclusive VOIZE interview with Ze!" - Charlene Joseph

Ze! and Miss.Osixnine on Junk


dear diary,

my sis and I are on Junk Magazine this month; posing rather retardedly with an iPod nano each along with other fab artists like Yuna, Lapsap's Xu and DJ Goldfish. It is the mag's special this month called STYLE COUNCIL featuring musicians who own their own clothing lines. Fabulous! :)

"If you were looking for a neon orange and hot pink cowboy hat, OSIXNINE is where you want to go. Mercurial singer and party starter Ze!, and her DJ sister Miss.Osixnine run the OSIXNINE streetwear boutique in Subang (which they dub 'the new Bangsar'), and specialise in party apparel that MIA or even the old Madonna would approve of. Inspired by Johnny Cupcakes and Ugly Kids Club, the merch ranges from dayglo Kanye glasses to handcuff-buckled belts to slogan tees that go 'I Bang Drummers' in the store (which is as brightly-coloured as the clothes it contains). Despite already going international, OSIXNINE keeps its prices low, so everybody wins."
