• Setting new “word” and intentions for 2022
    A new year. A new chapter. And plenty of new opportunities! Don’t you just love the idea of having a new canvass to paint, write and design the next chapter of our lives? What stories are we writing in 2022? My favourite thing to do in January is setting my new “word” and intentions for …
  • Camber Sands, countryside walks and sheep turds
    Camber Sands sunny beach, countryside walks and sheep turds (as in dodging them) are some of the many things you can do in the surroundings of Rye, England. During our long weekend, we did a few walks to explore the seaside and the surrounding countryside, with herds after herds of sheep to say hi to! 🙂
  • Quintessentially English medieval town, Rye
    I am starting a UK Staycation series as we got to explore more of the UK in 2021. First up is quintessentially English medieval town, Rye along the south-east coast of England. We had been in lockdown number 2 since last Christmas when the government announced that we would be freed in May, my friend …
  • Distractions
    Distractions, distractions, distractions! We are surrounded by them. In this digital age, it is too easy to be distracted by our surroundings. Everything and anything can be a distraction if we let it. If it’s not Netflix, then there’s YouTube. Does anyone still watch TV anymore? If it’s not Instagram, then there’s Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, …
  • Must have qualities of a modern classy Lady
    Being born a woman does not automatically make you a Lady. But what exactly does being a “lady” mean? When I think of a lady, I think of the words elegance, poise and grace. These beautiful words describe a lady’s demeanour, aura, and beauty that radiates from her internal qualities. In Chinese, we call this …
  • 2021 ‘Transform’ – The Elegant Lady Transformation
    My beautiful elegant Ladies, I hope you’ve as great as start to 2021 you possibly can.  I tend to do a lot of thinking in January so I can set some goals in February.  If you’ve been following me for awhile, you will know that I am not one for new year resolutions as I …
  • 2020 recap: the year that was
    2020 recap: the year that was about social distancing, self isolating and home staying. I’ve been pondering whether to write this post or just let it slide. I decided to write one anyway as I wanted to capture my thoughts and reflection on the year that was simply just about surviving and staying home to …
  • Slowing Down is Good for the Soul
    It’s hard to fathom that we have been living in lock down for 73 days today! Every morning on my “commute” to the workstation, I would do a pit stop by the kitchen to pick up my freshly brewed coffee, thank you Mr A, walked over to the bay window to get a glimpse of …
  • Paris, the city of love
    For our wedding anniversary this year, we (more like me) decided to spend a long weekend in Paris. Where could be more fitting to celebrate our love than Paris, the city of love? 🙂 If you’re anything like me, you don’t need much convincing when it comes to visiting Paris, the city of love, whether it’s …
  • Just like a toxic relationship
    Beginning of the year is the time when I tend do a lot more thinking, reflecting and looking back on the year that just past naturally. Running pictures of my highlights and lowlights from last year flashing vividly in front of my eyes like a movie trailer. There were lots of laughing and there were …
  • Decorating Our First Christmas Tree
    After a long hiatus, I am back on the blog and ready to say goodbye to 2018. It just felt like yesterday when I and a million other Londoners were crammed up by River Thames to watch the NYE fireworks. As they say, time flies when you’re having fun. Admittedly my blogging plan and schedule …
  • High end meets high street
    Let’s face it unless you were born into the likes of the Kardashian family where dropping £10k for an Hermes bag is just petty cash or a tier 1 influencer where high end fashion labels shower you with their latest catwalk pieces with the hope that you would wear it, snap it and gram it, …
