Miss Moss posted about Uttu recently and the crowd went wild – with the crowd being yours truly. The Istanbul based fashion label is all I ever wanted in a fashion label. The spring-summer 2012 collection features a number of nine items, available in a few variations each. But the thing is, each of these nine is absolutely amazing. I found two favorite dresses in an instant (Jale and Sade), but it’s impossible to decide which color is the prettiest. More than just pretty clothing, the lookbook is wonderful to gaze at: it looks completely natural, with the models as “city dwellers”, waiting for the bus, locking the door, checking the phone, grocery shopping, eating a pretzel – all the trivial stuff that rarely appears in a fashion lookbook. This makes the clothing seem even more wearable, since it gives them context. It’s a pretty stunning collection, so…

Last night with a few great friends I have known for years, we went and had a nice relaxing time by the waterfront of Lake Ontario, and we decided to have a little bonfire and just chill out and look at the clear sky with so many stars. It was so beautiful. We always do this once a month during the summer time. We try to spend as much we can outdoors. After about 2-3 hours that past, there were these awesome people who came by and said hello and asked if they can join us around our fire pit. We said yes sure, so we met new people and they seemed like pretty nice people. Especially the one who initiated and asked. So they were kind enough to bring us some more firewood as we had run out of it, which we said thank you and they stood with…

Phù Kình kinh ngạc nhìn điện thoại đã bị cúp trước mặt, bên tai còn vọng lại tiếng “tút – tút –”, thẳng đến một giây này, y mới thật sự tin tưởng, đứa nhỏ đó đã thay đổi.

“Chậc chậc ~ không thể ngờ tiểu Diệp dám cúp điện thoại của anh, anh hai à, xem ra uy tín của anh cũng chỉ có bao nhiêu thôi ~” Tiếng nói trào phúng hợp thời vang lên, không cần đoán cũng biết đó là vị em ruột tự xưng rất quan tâm yêu thương anh hai Phù Kình của mình, Phù Thanh.

“Chẳng lẽ công ty của em bị đóng cửa? Hay là muốn anh tự mình tìm hắn đến, em mới chịu trở về?” Tiện tay ném bản công tác lên bàn, mở máy tính, bắt đầu một ngày…

Life With The Top Down

Happy 94th Birthday Nelson Mandela!

I decided to share some of the wishes he has received in honor of this milestone, we should all be so fortunate to be viewed in such a positive light. Just look at that smile! 

The Obamas: “On a personal note, our family has been inspired by Madiba’s example, and has deeply appreciated the time we have spent with him, and his wisdom, grace and generosity of spirit.”

Peter Hain: Nelson Mandela seems to encompass all that is best about us on our best day. He represents democracy, tolerance, humanity, courage, leadership. We would all like to live up to those standards in our everyday life. Very few of us manage to.”

Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu: The greatest gift the nation could give Mandela on Wednesday would be “to emulate his magnanimity and grace.” “Mr. Mandela taught us to love ourselves, to love one another and…

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

Many people don’t understand the joy and excitement travelling does to each discoverer.  It isn’t the fun alone but rather the experience and the new things you get to encounter.  It’s like breaking away from the chains and living the day like there’s no tomorrow.

Let me show you some photo shots I personally took.
