Call Me Stupid...

Sometimes (most of the time) things do not go the way you want it to...for those times, you just gotta have faith, even if it's blind faith (or a fool's hope) because, having faith on something that seems terribly destined for failure is still better than the alternative - giving least this is how I see me stupid, but I'd still follow my heart to the ends of the earth...

PS : It's getting harder because you're slipping away...

Of Busted Kettles & Going Bananas...

Bananas - tis a funny yellow fruit tis is :p

I feel like talking about bananas today. I don't know why - well this morning I woke up and waltzed (stumbled) into the kitchen to make myself a cup of coffee only to discover that...wait for kettle was broke T_T *bloody hell* (smacks face - i really did you know, seriously...) beside the now broke kettle lay a bunch of yellow bananas and I thought - hmm bananas...and well that's about it actually because I was (am) still upset on the fact that the kettle is broke *bugger* Okay that was encounter with the funny yellow fruit number 1.

Next, I saw bananas on TV. Yes I did. Nothing grand or special or extraordinary just some actor required to eat a banana in a scene...hmmm...and that was the second encounter with the funny yellow fruit...

Well about an hour ago, just as I was driving back from my long walk, I passed by a street stall selling fruits and there hanging in bunches were - yes you guessed it right - bananas! *high-five* Wanted to stop and buy some because the ones at home I had thrown away on the count that they were on the verge of rotting (yes, I'm disgusting blueek!!) but I was too lazy plus there was no where to park so that was that...

So I reached home and now I'm sitting on the floor (coz it's more cooling on the floor than the couch - the weather is searing!) typing away on my notebook about the funny yellow fruit that is the banana :) god bless its soul (if it has one. probably it does I reckon. all living things do. but then again bananas are not to say living when its not growing on a tree are they? i dunno. I'm confused...)

PS : The hall is getting dark but I;m lazy to switch on the lights.
PS2 : I'm actually craving for bananas now...damn...
PS3 : The King's Speech is a compelling movie I must say :)
PS4 : I'm still bummed that me kettle is busted..........

The Stirring of Souls...

Where to go this year?

I'm thinking, I'm thinking but I can't seem to decide...partly because of my budget (damn Skye why u have to be so broke :p) and partly because I just don't know I guess...too many places and each one being special in its own way...sigh...

I wanna think of somewhere obscure yet beautiful as well as many conditions? ppfffft!!...i have to set these conditions (have to!!) because if not I can never go anywhere...true story... :p

My heart's in a mess...

On another note, I'm really starting to crave (not food!!) to do something that fulfills my soul - i want to be passionate about my work...last night I was stuck in the office till late. When I looked around, I saw that it was only me that is left (alone again...naturally...) I started to doodle then decided to draw...Last time I was inspired by a lot of scenery's - of trees and mountains and the likes...but now I am intrigued by, how do I put it, hmmm...intrigued by life, specifically humanity and the individuality's that are subtly hidden from the world. Don't get me wrong, I still love nature, but there is just something about a perfectly timed snapshot into a person's life - a stranger suddenly seems not so strange and for that brief moment in time you find yourself connecting with the other...

Okay back to last night, I came across a picture of a girl standing nonchalantly against a fixture - her arms wrapped around a package and herself, her chin softly resting on the package and her face was calm with a hint of story - she is pondering about something or someone - pensive, her eyes gazing towards the ground not focused on anything in particular. The world around her was moving along but her life for that moment paused and nothing else seemed to matter. Just her and her how is it that we connect to a person in a picture? I'll tell you is through the fact that we are all humans and at one point or another we found or will find ourselves in that same situation. Of course the place, the outfit, the time might not be exactly the same but somehow or rather you can relate to the emotion that that person is going through and that is when you and the stranger become one...

Well of course that's just me hahas...I am constantly moved and intrigued by the littlest things, the simplest me crazy, call me weird (okies, so ppl already do that hehehe...:p)

Alright, so, for that picture, I stopped my work and began to draw it...somehow for me, when I draw the picture, I become even much more a part of the other person's life...and yes, drawing stirs my soul and helps me clear my thoughts - just like what walking and writing does for me...and in the midst of drawing I couldn't help to sigh and re-think of what I am doing in a line that wasn't mine in the first place...

PS : That drawing of mine is up on my workstation...(like anyone
wants to know kan? =\)
PS2 : I botched up the legs....damn...
PS3 : Thanks to Scott Schumann for his ever intriguing pictures ;)
PS4 : My heart's still in a mess...

The Edge of Desire...

There I just said it, I'm scared you'll forget about me...

It felt right at first,
Because you said it was,
You run away from me,
And I,
Am left picking up pieces of my broken heart...
This cycle is vicious,
And there is no one to save me...

The Supermoon :)

The moon is suppossed to be at its closest to the earth tonight (closest in 2 decades! wow!!) But sadly, living at the earth's equater, you don't really get to see this amazing phenomenon...sigh...I can only imagine how it would be like to see this magnificent celestial body upclose, to reach out and hope to touch it in your hands...haha yes, it's all in my head...can't help it...i think the moon is one of the most beautiful things that I have ever had the pleasure to know :)

PS : Beauty needs no reason, just like you...

Okay, one more for the road - Chanel AW11

This heart, it beats, beats for only heart is your heart...
Well, the world is spinning wildly again and I can't feel my feet on the ground - I cried...

So I think that Karl Lagerfeld's AW11 Chanel collection is just totally awesome!!! Okay maybe I'm a little biased towards the whole black theme and ensembles but, but, gotta admit, it is one heck of a collection! - grey to black tones, black to grey tones and then in the midst of it all, your eyes jump towards splashes of earthy reddish colors and emeraldy-mossy green! wow!

And the setting! Dark, winter forest complete with mysterious fog and everything! Oh how I wish I was right there, at the front row! Soon my dear Skye! Soon! Dreams are never easy to realize, that's what makes it so special and awesome! And when they do come will know that whatever hardship and torment that you went through in order to be standing there - dreams in your hand, was worth it!

Aaaahhh c'est la vie! Bravo Chanel et Karl! XD

PS : I don't want to be here anymore...
PS2 : Below are some of my fav's from Chanel and some that just plain caught my attention :p

Alice in Wonderland - darker version but oh so naish!! Hehe...

The above 2 are just awesome - eastern + Karl's brilliance! :)

Somehow this reminds me of the Anime Fate/Stay Night - Servant Saber! V^^

Okies...really love this one! It's so matrix like!

This is a classic Chanel look with sort of a little edgy twist to it - subtle, but it's there :)

Karl Lagerfeld - the man behind Chanel :)

It takes every ounce of strength in me to try to not care, to forget, to let go....
What good will it do?
Will I matter then?
Will I be missed?
Will everything turn out the way I want it to?
When will I ever learn?...


PS : I need to get some sleep!!! T_T

A Beautiful Lie...

"A Beautiful Lie"
30 Seconds to Mars

Lie awake in bed at night
And think about your life
Do you want to be different?
Try to let go of the truth
The battles of your youth
'Cause this is just a game

It's a beautiful lie
It's the perfect denial
Such a beautiful lie to believe in
So beautiful, beautiful it makes me

It's time to forget about the past
To wash away what happened last
Hide behind an empty face
Don't ask too much, just say
'Cause this is just a game

It's a beautiful lie
It's the perfect denial
Such a beautiful lie to believe in
So beautiful, beautiful it makes me

Everyone's looking at me
I'm running around in circles, baby
A quiet desperation's building higher
I've got to remember this is just a game

It's a beautiful lie
It's the perfect denial
Such a beautiful lie to believe in
So beautiful, beautiful it makes me...

Of Punches & Paris...

Fendi AW11

'I got into a fight trying to save this young kid from being bullied' what I wish I could say :p in truth the cut on my lower lip (which is not thaaaat obvious pfft!) is actually due to dryness (dryness!! sheeesh...)...but it's just so much more glamorous being able to say the earlier, right? right? :p

In fact, I have never been punched before actually. So I really have no idea how it would feel like. Well I bet it would be more painful that what I'm feeling now (like duh!! -__-") do I want to be punched? hmmm...i have this motto where I tell myself, 'Try everything once Skye...' so i guess i want to be punched?...err...

Pucci AW11

Oh week moved on to Paris! aahh je t'aime :) i gotta, one year, take time off from work and follow the fashion week across US and Europe - especially New York, London, Paris and Milan!! well actually these are the major fashion cities to watch out for kekeke :p so many things, so little time!! (and money too hahas :p)...but dreams do come true. I believe in them although lately I've been struggling with some emotions that are not soo easy to let go off. Which makes me think (sometimes larr..) that dreaming big effin sucks!! But despite the struggles, I have and will always be a dreamer! :)

PS : John Galliano - oh dude, seriously?? anti-semitism and you expected what? the world would cheer you on?? seriously?? Well, Dior would not whither down without you, so there you go! lives on!!
PPS : Christian Dior, you looking for an upcoming designer? are you? are you? *points at self* =D
PPPS : You see, I'll always be a dreamer :) blueekk!!
