DIY


I was thinking of giving something to this lovely friend of mine. So, this is what I've done with the Preshafruit bottle. Thought it would be nice for her work desk -

PRESHAFRUIT


Preshafruit Granny Smith - Yumm, and not to mention the overall smart packaging - easy to hold too.


Just when i was taking a shot of the juice bottle from the balcony, i thought this shot is memorable to be archived here. View from the balcony - humm... interesting.

DUPPION



Duppion - also known as Indian silk. I remembered around July last year i was looking for tartan/checker box scarf from fabric store. (Well, I was inspired by e15 fabrics collection) They haven't got any in yet.

So, when i was passing by Tessuti in Surry Hills today, spotted this Duppion @35$ /meter on the window. Half a meter @ 17.50$. I loved it, particularly the waxed texture that gives the silk, a little bit more structure. I decided to post this up when the taxi driver asked me where did i get my scarf from, earlier today - Hilarious.

*the image turned out orangey-er. Supposed to be gunpowder grey with hint of pomegranate -

SUMMER HOURS



So, we had our movie at verona last night. I thought it would be just nice for a relaxing evening without much thinking. Yes, it was, the movie was slow and narrative. A very classy woman, Helene (almost Ms. Wintour lookalike, especially her hair styling) left behind a collection of valuable antiques behind for her children.

The whole movie is about how Helene's children manage her will, after she passed away. The ending was unpredictably quick though, but there was a very subtle message behind it. You should all find out.

OPTIONS



Initial quick collage/design for a dinner invitation for my facebook. Then I thought it could be a little less fashion involved. Either way, I like them both. I post this up when i received a comment from sasa saying she prefer this one better than the one below.
