I fell hard for these Gianvito Rossi ‘Marie’ lace-up boots the first time my eyes laid on them, and you can obviously see why. The satin, the lace-up, the thigh-high.. what’s not to love? Fast forward a couple weeks later, I managed to land the last pair (ever, ever, ever in the world) in my perfect size and I swear I have trouble taking them off. For one, I wish I could wear them to sleep, and secondly, the tying and untying gets a bit hectic especially when you’re in the changing rooms. That said, the concealed zipper is a lifesaver though, so thank goodness for that. Now, only if you can spot it..

Singapore is truly lovely, trust me, and I’m obviously proud to be Singaporean but you can imagine how stifling the city gets on a humid day (which is almost every other day). I miss stacking on the layers and coats, and of course I wish we could just swap weathers with second home, Perth. But until the impossible becomes possible, I’ll just make do with cosying up in airy vests and flared pants that are slashed to the knees.

Admittedly I’ve been chasing cherry blossoms ever since I got into Tokyo, to the annoyance of my brother, so of course I made my way to Shinjuku Gyoen that has one of the most beautiful Japanese gardens in the city. Although it is a vast park with different garden sections, I only ended up finding one sakura tree in proper bloom. Better than nothing, I told myself, as I waited for all the tourists to clear before managing the above shots. Worth it though, right?

We took to Tokyo’s ‘kawaii’ capital next, and as expected the place was mighty packed on a weekend. I love people-watching around Harajuku and grabbing crepes stuffed with brownies at Takeshita Street, and get this: if you don’t ‘gram the biggest fairy floss ever from Totti Candy Factory, it didn’t happen.
