Tokyo Video Diary

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!

Filmed on a Fujifilm x-pro 1 and edited on Final Cut Pro. 


Summer Proof

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.

I'm wearing an old asos top, vintage jeans and lack of colour hat. 


Shadow Play

Here are the rest of the photos from Amsterdam, in my new favourite top and vintage Levi's that I found whilst rummaging in a market in Amsterdam that day. Really digging how the photos came out with the shadows and all and can't wait to post the video footage I shot during the trip. I've always had a love-hate relationship with jewellery but these ear cuffs are just dainty enough for my liking; hence, the perfect accessory to my default jeans and top combo. Except I'm home in Hong Kong for the summer and clothes in general are a socially necessary but physically repellant non-option in this humidity...cue thunderstorm. P.S. Any theme requests for the next playlist?

No Frills

There are only a few non-food/beverage related things I like better than shooting at home or in a studio, where you don't have to worry too much about light, or getting your stuff stolen, or getting hired last-minute as a pigeon's human toilet (the list goes on). Of course, its even better when said location is your own airbnb where you can retreat after a long day of museum-going in Amsterdam, and you are wearing great clothes by a talented young designer. Case in point, our 'Dutch Design Loft' in central Amsterdam, and garments by J.H. Zane...and to top it off, photos by my dad. I fell in love with Zane's attention to detail and unique construction...definitely one to look out for. This is one out of two posts where I'll be featuring the above combination and I am so excited to show you the rest! Hope you like the photos.
