mirror, mirror on the wall...

... I'm the fairest of them all. Woot..!!

Guess what arrived in the mail today?? Well not really... I actually had to go pick it up at PosLaju, Glenmarie as nobody was around at home to expect the package yesterday. I was so darn excited and ripped the package apart there and then in the car while waiting for the traffic light to turn green.

Voila! This year I'm going as Snow White!! Weeeee!! Lace petticoat is sold separately. Other than that outfit comes with dress, cape and bow-band.



Testing the dress out. Abit hot *already starting to sweat profusely underneath the red velour* and short actually. I know-lah I know-lah I'm abit too lou-hang to attempt kawaii and as XiaXue calls it 'chio'. Kasi chance OK, at least it's not, like, I'm 30!

Testing it out with the rightful hair. BIG FUN right??
1. Oh and ladies, for those who are not in their normal BMI range, like me, in other words FAT or thick or chubby or however else you might wanna sugar-coat it, it helps to wear an abdominal spandex / corset whachamacalit.
2. An extra tip is, dig your hands into your sides to create a better waistline or at least some visual trick of its existence.
3. ALSO, hold your freaking breath-lah and suck that sucker tummy in!!

Skin as white as snow. Lips as red as blood. Hair as black as ebony. Wahaha..!!


Now to find a smashing costume party this festive hols. All decked up with nowhere to go... Actually I sorta have an invitation to a thing already but can't hang with the urban kin as I'm forbidden to dress quirky by them. They are seriously Boredom Central! Man... tarak fun lah macam tu. Anybody got any other party suggestions??

Also, most importantly.. what is everyone going as?? LET ME KNOW LET ME KNOW :)





3 days away

my first cuppacakes show

Welcome to the whimsical wonderland of Cuppacakes : +wondermilk cafe!! Lots of happy art prints and kitschy wood-art.
.
.
Outside they had hip booths selling super stuff like Blok On! and cutesy dresses. This is Syamly, my good friend (OK lying: we're not good friends.. I just lurve his work so much I'm putting him in my good friend list) makes these amazing Lightbloks. And on that day he sold them for RM60 a piece! On a usual day they're RM80 (standard size). View them at Thesyemism.
.
.
This is Poet Stories. Miss TanTan dragged me by the hair to the acoustic corner 'cos they were serenading 'Lucky': Jason Mraz feat Colbie Caillat. And they did it so beautifully.
.
.

Moi and cuppacakes token... finally reaching the counter! By the time I figured I should take a picture of the pastry, all of it already landed in my digestive system, oops!
.
.

Miss TanTan gets into the sweet action too.
.
.

So cutes hor? Free cuppacakes ROCKS big time!!
.
.


Totally!! I spent the rest of the sweltering day looking about at all these pretty people in funky suits. Yes it's my mothership and I'm in awe being surrounded by all these styles. I work and live with umm... so much norm that it's a good breath of fresh air to just crawl out and have cocoa outside the bubble once in awhile.
.
.

We got free Mingo Mingo ice-cream too!! Shelbulous(!!) 'cos it was a really hot afternoon and it wasn't just me melting in the sun.
.
.

There were cuppacakes designing competition too! BIG FUN! I hadn't manage to sign up in time. Maybe next year...?
.
.

This bloke is the most comical of the lot! The fella's cuppacakes were umm.. abysmal(?) as Simon Cowell would kindly describe them :D Miss TanTan had to jab me in the sides with her ultra sharp elbow multiple times 'cos I laughed so freaking hard!! Eh he made one with stool-looking icing all over the sides. Funny lei!!
.
.

My favourite item / deco in the room. Fantastic job with the flags! Went home filled with cheer and joy. Wish every weekend was a Cuppacakes party day! There would be no need for painkillers and alcohol... just lots of sweet sugary love!
.
.

Dddy was super impressed with the Blok On! lightbloks, even made me tell Syamly that he's gonna be BIG one day, so I made Dddy one too. I do believe my attraction for kitsch and other useless-but-beautiful stuff comes from my old man. It's all in them genes y'all!!
.
.

This is mine!! Not as pink as I imagined it to be but I AM SO SO SO IN LURVEEE with it!! *skips in glee and merriment*
.
.
My souvenir from the great day. A tattoo to remind me of all things sunshine.
Can't wait for next year's show... till then *bisou*
.
.
.
.

P.S: I got a hater today: Read first hate post here. I guess I've arrived 'cos with fame comes haters, non?

KokoKaina

Tonight You Belong To Me (Cover On Uke) feat Azwar Rashid

I had to return to the Cuppacakes show, 'cos my Lightblok wasn't working, for Syamly to do a quick fixer-upper. As I stood patiently and waited... a band lined up for the night started playing. The songs that I managed to catch were 'Poppy' and 'honeyBee' (really like this one). Brilliant!! So dreamy and demure :) Will try to look for an album. Who knows where I can get Kokokaina's album?? Leave a message OK..

today

dear auntie kim

Got social trigonometry issues? Life questions? General health stuff? Curious about me?

Ask Auntie Kim something! She's in the mood to answer questions.

Ask her ask her!! She'll try to be useful.



Email questions to khoshelby@yahoo.com entitled 'Dear Auntie Kim' (This is how I tell real emails apart from Spam. I get ALOT OF SPAM) or leave a comment. I'll try to whip up a good answer..



*bisou*

the cherry blossom girl






















I go here alot.

Did you know people in general find that I dress quirky? I actually get put on clothes restriction when I go out with my friends. Too loud, too childish, too themed, too weird. Malaysian Muggles are hard to please. We have such a narrow concept of fashion sometimes.






The photography is beyond description. And the mood it conjures: floaty, flirty, frivolous... fun. Frivolous and fun, those 2 words I hold dear to my heart. I wish someone would come take happy pictures of me like that.






It was *fireworks* when I first laid eyes on these pictures. This is a world where threads I wear is admired and appreciated, not dismissed. I have the exact Forever21 navy dress!! Uncanny hor? It's not coincidence.. it's fate. Now I know, I'm not alone. And this is my escape... only a website type / click-on-link away :)

my favourite things

I was having a very bad day today. Can't even talk about it 'cos it just makes me feel worse so I won't talk about it.

Although...

... something I bought arrived in the mailbox a couple of days ago. Post always makes me feel better. Real post: with licked stamps and paper envelopes. I knew I saved it from 'open-ceremony' for a reason. Maybe my intuition knew today would come.



"When the dogs bark
When the bees sting
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favourite things




I really like the way they wrapped the envelope in colourful wrapping paper.



I really really like the way the package came in black tissue paper and a pink bow. Tres chic!



Feel more pleasant already. I LOVVA LOVVA my bracelet:


Bebas!


My other (and oh-so-very-unfortunately unavailable) *bisou* worthy favourites:


Sarafina



Sofia



Soraya



Musim Bunga



Bebas



Liana Merah Jambu



Add Image Juita Putih



Juita Merah Jambu


And then I don't feel so bad..."
