“I’m going for a hoop retreat.”

Comments (0) Spiritual, Spiritual, Health & Develop

“A what?” people retort when i tell them i am going to be away for 10 days.
“A hoop retreat,” I repeat, “Hula hoop…?”
“Oh… it’s a thing? That’s so cute!”

Hey it’s some serious business okay… I’ll blog about it entirely but right now, i’m freaking exhausted, it’s past midnight and i need to wake up at 7:30am.

After being obsessed with my hoop for 10 years, and actually hooping (though rather sporadically) for a year; i was introduced to Jaguar Mary by Michelle (creator of The Hula Hoop Institute). JM has been running Sacred Circularities in Bali and Sedona, which consists of a series of 7-day hoop retreats that is described as “an immersion experience in movement and meditation, and healing hoop dance.”

I was hooked up to update their social media here in Bali for Week 3 of their 2015 retreat, and initially, i had a few moments where i wasn’t sure i was even going to come. Overwhelming thoughts of work flooded my mind – client’s event coming up, never ending blogposts to write, managing the team, bla bla bla. Then i thought, “WHAT AM I DOING.”

This is one of the main reasons i LIVE for. To travel and dance and play and hoop and… this is why i work… so i can do THIS. And to turn it down? No way! Everyone will just have to manage without me. Bye people. And off i went.

It’s been amayzinggg so far and i have no doubt i am meant to be here. Have met some of the most talented hoopers in the world, and… gosh i don’t even know where to start. I need to sleep cos there’s gonna be a huge bazaar and performance tomorrow where (i heard) some of the craziest circus performers, hoopers, jugglers, etc are all here in Ubud to play!

For now, you can see what Sacred Circularities is all about on >


Diane von Furstenberg “Riviera” Spring 2015 Collection

Comments (0) Events, Events, Party & Festivals

Last week i RAN out of the office to the unveiling of Diane von Furstenberg‘s newly refurbished boutique in Pavilion. The Spring 2015 collection was also exhibited via a curated fashion show of specially-flown in runway pieces (which i unfortunately completely missed because… of work). Still, i managed to skip in to show my face,d snap some pictures, and sip a glass of bubbly.


“Themed ‘Riviera’ the latest collection is a crescendo of print and colour, and encapsulates a women’s joie de vivre air; with bold displays of structured silk in vibrant pinks, greens and blues, gingham wraps with flirty chiffon skirts, and painterly florals collaged to evoke Picasso and Matisse.

The 1,300 sq. ft. shop features the latest adaptations of the new DVF store concept. Playful sophistication and modern femininity is evoked through iconic graphic patterns that contrast with white, gallery-like interiors. The shop also features luscious drapery in DVF pink that celebrates and empowers the DVF woman; and THE WRAP SHOP, which offers the Heritage Collection of wrap dresses, gowns & jumpers in DVF’s most iconic prints.”

Louis XIII de Remy Martin “Quest For A Legend”

Comments (0) Alcohol, Food, Drinks & Desserts

I had the privilege of tasting some LOUIS XIII cognac at a recent press luncheon at Lafite.



The astonishing fact that makes LOUIS XIII stand out from others in the world, is how it’s aged for over 100 years.

Can you imagine?
How someone in France thought, “Hmm, what if we aged cognac for 100 years?”
And done that they did.

Created in 1874 by 4 generations of Master Cellars, LOUIS XIII is the finest cognac crafted by the House of Rémy Martin. Made from the exceptional blend of 1,200 carefully selected eaux-de-vie; it is then aged for 100 years in Tiercon casks made of oak from the Limousin Forest.



House of Remy Martin or also known as Domaine du Grollet (Grollet Field).

From left to right: the first cellar master was André Renaud; second cellar master André Giraud; and the third cellar master Georges Clot.


Pierrette Trichet on left, was the first woman to hold the top post at one of the four major Cognac houses, Remy Martin.
Loiseau on the right, will become Rémy Martin’s fifth cellar master in the last 100 years, following André Renaud, André Giraud, Georges Clot and Pierrette Trichet.

The “Quest for a Legend” is a worldwide search for the rarest LOUIS XIII decanter on earth. The Quest will scour the globe in pursuit of this hidden treasure and the search for the rarest decanter in Singapore, Malaysia, India and the Philippines.

My Apparel Zoo: The Mod Collection 2015

Comments (0) Fashion, Fashion, Style & Beauty

I first got a preview of Ellie Norman‘s latest Pre-Fall collection for her label My Apparel Zoo a few weeks ago. We had a Japanese lunch in Publika before visiting her showroom where i saw the new lookbook on her iPad. She told me how she doodles her designs out before bringing them to life with the help of her seamstresses, and i couldn’t help ordering a skirt on the spot. (Go me and my self control.)


That’s the skirt i bought – nice right nice right!?
It even has pockets #WIN

All the boxes on the bottom show off available colours in said design, which are to be pre-ordered and takes 2-3 weeks.

I feel her pieces can be carried off by most women, as they feature silhouettes that accentuate and flatter feminine curves. Asymmetrical lines, folds of pleats, sharp collars, floppy bows, tapered pants, and cuts nipped in at the waist – all the pieces can easily be wardrobe staples for many-a year.

My Apparel Zoo will be at BSC’s Seek & Keep this Friday-Sunday if you want to meet Ellie, get a close-up look at The Mod Collection, and perhaps score yourself a sale item from past collections. More info after the page break!
