Hi, you lovely people. How's your 2014 so far? If it hasn't been good, this is your chance to make it right. Stop moping and start cracking! Get outta your bed and do something fun today! There's so much to do. Hang with friends. Chill with family members. Catch a movie. go for bowling etc. Just be happy ok? 

I'm very pleased to say my 2014, though as usual a roller coaster ride as the other years, I feel like it's a lot better comparatively and it's gonna end on a very very lovely note. 

I haven't updated in a while and so here is "What's up with my life so far?"

1. I disappeared for a while cause I was.... busy studying. And for some reasons, I just discovered that studying is actually deemed as uncool??? Since when?! There's nothing more attractive in a women I find, other than wit, intellect and personality. There are waaaay too many people making study look uncool. Do I sound like I'm already being sucked into the whole typical Singaporean education system vortex? Maybe you didn't know and maybe I haven't made it obvious enough but I've always been this way. It's just that the disparity is a lot more pronounced in my current university. I never want to live up to the stereotypes that models are stupid and vapid. Some people were sooooooooo surprised when they learnt that I would skip an important fashion gig for exams revision. The question is, "Why not?" Seriously... why not??? Instead of chasing shallow stuff, secure and anchor yourself to something concrete. I'm only human, of course I complain and dread about school but ultimately, I do my part: study and hope to do well. Girls, do not let your friends' perception of what's cool and not deter you from your potential. Study smart and play hard. I am just done with my second semester and I've gotten back two grades. One of which, I received a whooping 95.3/100. I was.... in a complete shock. I've never seen that anything like that since primary school days --- I swear. Ignore all the social rules and be that smart, witty and charming woman than wishing you were her.

2. I can't wait to have a blast this December and January! Yi Ming will be touching down in the morning tomorrow. We'll spend our day chilling and nursing his jet lag. We'll also be catching movies we haven't had the time to: Big Hero 6, Horrible Bosses, Laggies and whatnots. We also have Vietnam and Taiwan to conquer!!! Thank you for those who've given us suggestions on these two places! We are very appreciative :')

3. I'm getting my iPhone 6 today with 128gb *omg* 

4. I cannot be anymore thankful to all the good things that have happened to me recently. 

5. I caught the Drums yesterday, and I would like to share with you guys my current favourite song from their favourite album. If, by any chance, you guys happen to like this song, do let me know! Each time you hear it, you might think of me? Hehe *wink*

5. Now, time to get ready and head over to Yishun to spend time with my granny and Noname - precious beings I've neglected in a while.

Catch up with your loved ones, if you haven't already.

Till' then!


  1. Irinaaa!!
    Yay, you finally posted! I've been checking your blog everyday for a while now and I had to blink a few times to be sure that there was actually a new post. Hehe, thank you for the song recommendation, it's playing as I'm commenting. I hope you and Yiming have a wonderful time together and create more beautiful memories :)
    P.S. Sorry if I come off as a bit bothersome but if you could squeeze some time for a quick everyday hair routine tutorial thing I would be so grateful :D If you're super busy I definitely understand (balancing work and school etc.)

  2. Yay yay, new post!! :D

    That first point of yours - I really admire the intellectual in you, how you not only have style but so much intellect as well. Plus how you write in perfect grammar and all. You being a gorgeous model is just a plus point; you're such an admirable person in your own right.

    Also, I am so happy for you and Yi Ming! I wish I was in your circumstances right now...haha But anyway, go enjoyyy! :)

  3. I was just wondering... Did you perm your hair or do you curl them every morning? I've been looking at your pictures and in every one of them your hair is just flawless. Let us on on your secret! :)
    Btw I love your posts and your relationship with yi Ming is just soooo cute I can't even.

  4. Hello Irina, I'm a new reader of your blog and I'm hooked! When I read your blog entry on the topic about subsequent love, I actually bawled my eyes out because I'm just so emotional I don't know why. Where do I start? My current boyfriend is my second love, and I'm probably his third love. For months I've been struggling with the idea of entrusting my heart to him entirely because I fear that I might fail in love again, and I've also doubted my own love for him, asking myself if I really do love him on many many occasions. (Background story: After my first love, I'm a skeptic and I lost all hopes about loving another with the same intensity I had for the first time because it just seemed so impossible.) But my current relationship is a little bit more complicated and unfortunate than yours. We started off with him dwelling in his previous relationship only to realise that he moved on after I decided to leave him for the first time. But we managed to give it another shot again. However after that little history that we had it's even harder for me to be love him with all my heart and soul, I'm always giving, and taking my love away and I can feel myself draining him because after our little episode at the start, he gave me all the love that he has but I just couldn't love him the same anymore. But YOU enlightened me with your blogpost, it is soooo true, for second love, trust is key to love and I should stop holding back and I should go forth with trusting my second love in order to attain the happiness that I deserve hehe. I feel like I'm not alone now because on months end I hated myself for not being able to love another fully after another when the people surrounding me could do it so...easily?

    Cheers and stay HAPPY.

  5. Hi Irina, the video of you in insta was it still moving at SAM? Thanks in advance.

  6. HI IRINA :)

    I'm planning a birthday party soon, and was really inspired by your blogpost on your birthday party!! do you mind sharing some of the activities you/your guests did? (because i intend to invite different clusters of people who are close to me... e.g. sec school friend/church friends/ uni friends/ family etc and i didn't want it to be awkward for them). i noticed you had a party check lists for those you invited, do you mind sharing some of the checklist/activities your guest completed? :)))
