Nothing evokes more weather confusion than posing in a winter jacket and boots with sunburnt arms, freckles, and editing to claps of thunder as today's storm continues...all in the height of a Hong Kong summer. Think of this more as a styling post rather than an outfit post...I pictured these items worn together despite real temperatures and got these shots after playing around with duct tape, a cloth backdrop that is really the cloth that we use to cover the sofa, a tripod and self timer. Pretty excited for the cooler months so I can wear this jacket and boot combo, I'm predicting a fall/winter uniform in the making.
Just got back from a trip to Taipei with friends. Will get around to editing my videos but in the meantime here are the snaps I got whilst testing out my new Minolta x-500 with Kodak ISO 400 film. Taipei will always have a special place in my heart because of the comfort I feel in the midst of its kind people, beautiful city greenery and huge bookstores. Oh, and dumplings; can't forget the dumplings. I know I've been bad at posting lately but I have some things lined up that I'm excited to show you all...keep your eyes peeled.
Despite how late we woke and left our cosy airbnb, we always made an effort to have breakfast. This usually involved noodles and a group favourite, 滷肉飯.
It just so happened that my parents and sister were in Taipei for a short duration of my trip, so I hung out a bit at their hotel.
One of my favourite things about Taipei are the trees along 敦化南路.
We spent a morning at the MOCA- Taipei Museum of Contemporary Art.
A good afternoon pick-me-up: hot soy bean milk and 炸油條.
Shopping and snapping in the trendy back streets of 東區.

The following photos were snapped by my friend Natalie on her Olympus Superzoom 105R.
I took forever to edit this but I can attribute the delay solely to the fact that I couldn't find the perfect music for my footage, to which my friend Cheryl (who has talent running through her veins like most people have blood) came to the rescue and made the perfect track for me. So, if your ears are hungry anytime soon feel free to give her tunes a listen, they're really nice. Re-editing these clips made me long to travel again; and what perfect timing as I'll be visiting Bangkok and Taipei this summer; feel free to hit me up with recommendations (off the beaten path as I have been to both before) and I will send you a virtual hug. In the mean time I hope you enjoy the video. Happy weekend!

Exhibit A: How to dress like you are naked. But with clothes on. Considering my stubborn insistence on wearing denim in the summer heat, I can only make up for retained heat by keeping everything else very much ventilation friendly. Can't wait to go to the beach and drink from coconuts and freak out when i step on weird things in the water.
