Chambray Comfort

Hello all,
I'm sorry for the intermittent posting but lately things have been getting pretty hectic! For instance, my boyfriend just came over on Friday to spend a few days in Singapore (and coincidentally celebrate our third anniversary). Those few days were a whirlwind of activity as I tried to fit in as many sights, sounds, and tastes into his trip without killing the both of us. In the end, we ended up visiting areas like Gardens by the Bay, a BMW World 2014 Expo (you know boys and their cars), Clarke Quay for a seafood dinner and coffee date, Universal Studios, and Sentosa Island. We also visited Orchard Road on his last full day and meandered through that very concentrated area of shopping and eating. 

Throughout his entire stay in Singapore, my boyfriend was trying to convince me to visit him in Hong Kong. At first I thought that it would be difficult to plan the trip; however, after we put a little brainpower into the situation, we ended up getting my flight and hotel plans set up! So now I will be leaving tomorrow morning for my 6 am flight to Hong Kong-- I'm so excited to finally visit the city where so many of my Vancouver friends were born. 

On a sidenote, make sure that you always triple check your info before booking your trip: I was stupid enough to only put "Deborah Poh" down on my manifest instead of the full "Deborah Ruiying Poh" that is on my passport. As a result, I had to wait what seemed like half a day for the airline to change it for me as I had already checked in online (another note: don't check in online unless you're absolutely sure that everything is correct). In addition to all of that, I had to find a printer at the local library as my aunt doesn't own a printer...

Despite all of the many setbacks, I'm just happy that things are settled now and I have finished packing (since it's only a few days I can pack very lightly)!

In terms of these photos and my outfit, they were taken near the beginning of my Singapore trip when my aunt and other relatives took my family out for a fancy seafood and dim sum lunch at the NSRCC Resort. This was the first and last time that I wore my wedges (I've been wearing flats all day and everyday lately) as I wouldn't need to walk very far. As well, I wore my new straw sunhat and these lovely skorts from Lowrys Farm (a Japanese brand that I fell in love with while shopping on Orchard Road). What do you guys think?

(Also, check out the mosquito bites on my legs that were a result of being bitten an innumerable amount of times in China.)

  8. Oh gurl. Its the same here in Netherlands. I only have wi-fi connection at my aunties place and she don't even have a laptop and unfortunately I forgot mine at home too. So my posts have to wait till I finally reach home.
    About the mosquitos - gurl you are not alone, they bit me too but we shouldn't better not complain ,it's summer and if you are not prepared you gone be in big big trouble and pain. But we already know haha.
    Btw I'm also most of the time in flats here in Netherlands as we are living in a small town so there's no need to show up with heels wedges or whatever. So I totally feel you!
    But enough said, i love your look. My fav piece is your so chic sunhat and denim skirt.
    Make-up on point but you already know.

    Hope you get to really enjoy yourself in Hongkong with the boyfriend.

  16. Debbie!!! Is funny how boys always end up changing our plans, isn't it? but sometimes those little trips that didn't get much planning are the funnest! I hope you spend a great time what him and I'm glad to read you both have some great three days in Singapore. I saw a pic of you two on Instagram... you guys are so adorable together!!!

    When I read about the incomplete name issues you were having with your ticket, it reminded me that before I moved to USA, when I lived in Peru, I had three names and two last names (yes three!!!) and I would normally just use one name and my two last names.... so I encountered so many issues like the ones you were describing! lol yup such a pain! but I'm glad you got it fixed on time for your trip!

    Of course your outfit is so beautiful as always!!! so I think I'm hoping Lowrys Farm ship internationally! haha becase I'm love with your denim shorts!! so adorable! all the outfits you have shown in your trip to Asia are adorable, summery and they look super comfortable! perfect for a touristic day :) about the mosquito bites... I have them too! (sad face!).

    Thanks so much for your lovely comment, I always enjoy reading your replies. I bough a similar little bag as you MK little pink one but it is more purpleish and Ralph Lauren! it is so so so pretty, you will see it in prob my next post!

    I hope to see a new post soon and to read all about your adventures in Hon Kong!!!
