Post-Yoga Feast/Coffee Break

Yoga is not new to me, I went to yoga studio when I was 10. Back  then I was just a  kid (was flexible) curious about the stuff everyone’s talking about and didn’t have any idea about meditation and relaxation. But 10 years later when I came back to Yoga, it totally means different to me. I need yoga to save me from distress, insomnia and neck pain/ stiff neck… ughhh I’m so old.

But trust me, I’m not the only person living here having such problems, everyone seems to be stressed out here. Hence it’s so precious for me to have a quiet place at the heart of the city that could let me breath!

Yoga Bambam is one of the coolest yoga studios I’ve been, located at Sheung Wan, the heart of the city but keeping you away from the hustle and bustle. It’s surrounded by small vendors, cafes and restaurants. Since it’s on the ground floor, you can enjoy the street view while stretching your body.

After an introduction course, I joined the Hatha Yoga course every Sunday afternoon. My instructor Melanie is a friendly and energetic lady, her class could be really dynamic and interactive.

Usually my yoga class finishes at 4:30, snack time! Fortunately Yoga Bambam is in between Sheng Wan and Sai Ying Pun, so I’d never worry about where to eat!

I put this cafe at the first place because I DO LOVE THEIR STRAWBERRY MILKSHAKE! Before I thought I would never like something in strawberry flavour cuz it’s too sweet, but Nosh obviously know how to blend the sweetness of fruits into the freshness of yogurt! Besides, their brunch are also my fav. It’s a good place to chill at and you should pay more attention to their interior wall murals.

This one is just next to Yoga Bam Bam, renowned for its pancake. I only tried once because this restaurant quite popular and is always full…  I tried its pancake all day breakfast, honestly the pancake is really soft but the whole dish is too heavy for me, which means from another perspective you don’t need to worry about the portion.

Oldish

Even though I’m not a British cuisine enthusiast (are you?) , I think Oldish is still worth a try. One of its selling point is the vintage interior design, and also the food quality is good too. Don’t miss it out when you pass by! (@Fahionmimo)

Bangkok

Hi hi wish you all having a great start of April. I told myself I should have updated more in March but obviously I failed again. (have been busy preparing for my job interviews ) Actually plenty of funny things happened around me last month and I really need to deal with my wordpress backlog:(  After this bloody week maybe I could write more about the Singapore restaurant week review or about the return of my Street Snap Monday Series lol (was too lazy to take pics)

Well, I’ve just flied back from Bangkok this afternoon so I think now it’s the best time to record my journey before it gets blurred. First, it’s an impromptu trip and I just decided to join my friends and booked the tickets at the last minute. I have no idea how Bangkok would be like and didn’t do any research before I departed. But thanks to my luck, everything went well and even the congestion didn’t bother us a lot 🙂

Street Food Haul  (@Fashionmimo)

My main purpose this time is to have a vacation rather than travel, so it’s a pity that I didn’t explored a lot in Bangkok. I have been to the night markets in Khao San Road and Siam, and… that’s all. And the craziest thing we did is spending 3 hours on taxi and 20 mins speed boat to Koh Samet…Despite the taxi fee, it’s really risky to try the BKK-bound highway at weekends (I wanna thank GOD once again for no traffic jam)

Koh Samet is a small island near Rayong. To those who live in Bangkok, it’s an ideal destination for a getaway from the hustle and bustle. And the highlight of this tour is Parasailing!! I was turning ecstatic when flying above the sea and saw the spectacular view with the breeze 🙂 I wish I had a Go-Pro with me.

If you are looking for travel tips, I need to say sorry in advance cause I am not the one who planned this trip. But I’ll try to donate some advices:

1. Taxi is an ideal transportation in town, I mean, you can go anywhere by taxi with an affordable price. We rent a car to Koh Samet and taxi back, the price is quite acceptable. Tuk tuk is fun, but in Bangkok somehow it could be really dangerous cause every car is just cutting each other off and the road could be such a mess :/ However, most taxi drivers don’t use meters; and you won’t know how the traffic would be like when you are in a hurry. So sky train could be a good substitute.

2. Put Thai pants on the must-buy list, this is the only souvenir I’ve bought this time cause I do need a loose and comfy pants for my flight. (Wearing shorts on flight is totally a nightmare for me) Besides, although this blog is no longer “fashion” anymore (lol), I still wanna recommend the loose pants with special pattern cause they provide you the perfect laid-back vacation mood!

What I talk about when i talk about brunch

Long time no see! Hope you all are doing well 😉

First, apologies for my super-long title, it’s from a book title of Haruki Murakami. However, this post is all about my nagging and has no relation with the great writer at all lol.  People have always been asking me how my life is in Singapore, feels like I really seldom update anything about this place. Is it because of the sunshine and hot weather here making me lazy?

Out of my expectation, life in Singapore can be very slow. Sometimes I even feel like I’m having a retired life here compared to in Hong Kong.

So, here I’m just gonna randomly post some photos, please understand my laziness. (@Fashionmimo)

Denim X Denim

Recently I found out some old pics about Denim. It was 2014 when I shot some pics for my layout design assignment and till today I still find these outfits interesting.

I always believe that if you wanna wear denim smart, just wear it on another denim! BUT! Just be aware of the colors and designs of your denim clothes, I don’t suggest you pairing your loose shirt and loose pants together…cuz sometimes it could be really awful… (@Fashionmimo)

Monocle Cafe

It’s been a week since I arrived in Singapore, and after I settled, it’s time to check my bucket list.

If you haven’t heard about Monocle, it’s a fast-growing media company established by a Canadian in 2007. The affairs include lifestyle magazine Monocle, 24hours radio, online/offline shops and cafes. To me it’s just like a miracle under the shrinking magazine industry that they are building up a lifestyle brand so quickly while they are also developing things more than Lifestyle.

Despite the largest headquarter in London, they are also setting up their new office in Singapore now. It’s a two-storey town house where the ground floor is for cafe and shop and the second floor is the office. So let’s go and have a look!

Holland Village, where the cafe is located is famous for those white townhouses and countless restaurants & bars. (@Fashionmimo)

70’s Fever

Clockenflap Music & Arts Festival is back in Hong Kong again this weekend. With over 45,000 participants in 2014, the scale is even larger this year . So please dress up and get ready for the music, arts and film carnival.

It’s never too hard to decide what to wear for a music festival: you could just wear whatever you want! To be Comfortable and Interesting, I think maybe that’s the only rule.

In fact, I have been dreaming to do some 70s outfit for a long time but I don’t have much chances to practice it since normally I’m just a bookworm shuttling between lecture hall and dorm.

IMG_8789

IMG_8791

So let’s see what are my key concepts about 70s:

1.Denim, especially flared jeans

If I have to choose 10 coolest designs ever, flared jeans must top the list. People always say there’s a revival of flared jeans but seriously has it ever been out of date??

2. Midriff Top, don’t be shy to show your belly!

Before the prosperity of American Apparel, my impression of 70s is all about the midriff top! Now they call it crop top and it’s just for those with perfect abs, what a shame!

3. Miniskirt, the high-waisted one

The fashion revolution of miniskirt since the early 1960s gives an enduring impact on our clothing culture. Even though it’s been over 50 years since the miniskirt protest outside Dior London, we still see the shorten hemline as a symbol to fight for women’s right today.

Endless Summer

Keep wondering what’s going on with the weather, it’s already mid-November but in Hong Kong you still feel like in summer. So every time when I see a long coat, I tell myself “Ok I will bring you home next time, if it gets cooler.” But I still haven’t got the chance LOL

Last Sunday I have visited Peng Chau,  a small island near Hong Kong with no traffic on.  The only way to get there is to take a 20 mins ferry from the Central in Hong Kong. Basically it’s a small village surrounded by the ocean and mountains (there’s a popular hiking trail called Peng Yu Path btw). My art teacher Mr. Yeung is a Peng Chau based art guru and he has a gallery here. Thanks to his invitation, I have the chance to explore this tranquil place with strong local culture.

Since there’s no car on the island, bikes are necessary for both tourists and residents.(@Fashionmimo)

It was tea time when we entered the restaurant. In Peng Chau, afternoon tea is never a highbrow thing. Just to grab some milktea with a sandwich, life should be easy isn’t it? (@Fashionmimo)
