I just realized on my way to work today how much I missed winter in Seoul. =’( I’ve been telling people around me that it was something nice to experience but will most likely take years to happen again because the cold was unbearable. LOL But I still want to experience winter again in South Korea. Mon and I share the same sentiment. =D Let’s see next year!

I’ve been through hell and back just for this Mulberry Bayswater in Congo leather. After three days of working on the missing postman’s lock and the carrying problem, I finally managed to totally fix it and I even attached a detachable strap from another Gucci bag so I can carry it messenger style!

heavysaber said: I have a question concerning Docs. So I want to purchase the red ones soon, yet I am torn between the 8 and 10 eye. I'm 6' any opinion?

Hi! I don’t know if you got my earlier reply but it was somewhat lost. After re-reading your question, I have totally missed the height consideration.  If I were you, I would get the 10-hole pair because it will look much better on you, given that you are 6’. Then you can get the 8-hole after and watch yourself go downhill because it will be the best pair of shoes you’ll ever wear and will be definitely looking for more! ;)

And then there were five!
New addition to my Doc Martens collection. The one with the strap-and-buckle detail. =)

I was just looking at “My Pictures” folder in my PC when I saw this shot I took from Seoul Tower in September last year for our third year anniversary trip. I totally forgot that I even took this panorama shot from the viewing deck! What I remember was that I have told myself that I will get back on editing this picture after I’m done with the other photos to be uploaded on my Facebook page. But I was expectedly overwhelmed by the sheer number that this was forgotten until now. (And I did this without any tripod!)
I can’t wait for December for Mon and I’s return trip. Before we know it, it’s already the -ber months! It seems only yesterday that we celebrated New Year!

TIWOE (Things I Won on Ebay) #22

After a long wait, it has finally arrived. Part of the reason why I wasn’t very enthusiastic to go to school was the excitement over this bag! After having the bag looked at to make sure it is authentic (given that I have zero Givenchy knowledge), I’m more happy about it. I paid more than what I hoped for, but I just can’t let this opportunity pass me by.

As the bag has obviously lost its original strap, I have used one of the straps from a Gucci messenger/sling bag. I have bigger and thicker strap from another bag, but it was brown and I’m pretty much sure they won’t work together. Meantime, I’m happy with this one.

It is really on the bigger side. Based on what I’ve gathered, there are some styles that are not really sold on U.S. stores. Nevertheless, I’m extremely happy with my Givenchy duffle!
