Khoon Hooi AW 16 Preview @ Bookmark APW Bangsar

Comments (0) Fashion, Fashion, Style & Beauty

I attended Khoon Hooi‘s Autumn Winter ’16 Preview at APW Bangsar recently. It was a breakfast event with a nice setting of pastries and coffee/tea.

I attended the event in a rush due to bad morning traffic and work was piling up back at the office so I didn’t stay for breakfast :( Andrew was supposed to come along with me too but he had too much going on at his workstation as well.

A few days prior to the preview, Andrew told me a little about Khoon Hooi and how beautiful and exquisite all his previous collections are.

Khoon Hooi graduated from the Malaysian Institute of Art before launching his own label in 1999, and taking the Malaysian fashion scene by storm. His achievements include the Harper’s Bazaar Style Award, Malaysia International Fashion Award, Mercedes-Benz Stylo Fashion Forward Award and a prestigious International Recognition at Bangkok International Fashion Week.

The Autumn Winter ’16 pieces in his collection were stunning. A modern take on Victorian luxury and lingerie, expect a lot of satin and lace detailing in every piece. His creations are elaborate yet not over-the-top, which makes it very wearable for events/parties.

I showed Joyce the pictures from Khoon Hooi’s collection for her to pick out but she said there were too many nice ones so we’ll just feature them all here >

Jun & i went to catch the preview of LALU The Film, a hyper-stylized 8-minute Malaysian thriller by We Are KIX and Seeing Eye Films. Am so proud of Ion, Jess and the rest of the KIX crew for creating such cool work; and my Arien sista Dee for acting in it!

Highlights of my trip in Macau

Decided to put together a summary of some of my favourite things we did and ate there cos my blogposts on Macau are all split up (due to too many pictures!)

Only in Macau, will you…

… behold the most ridiculously opulent reception areas you’ve ever set eyes on.

Food i’ve been eating for the past few months. Some of it.

This post has NOTHING but food pictures, so if you’re fasting for Ramadan, don’t click to view more unless you’re a sucker for self-torture.
Anyway there’s a lot of tak-halalness.

Dating a chef has its perks (FO SUREEEE). I love not having to move my body out of the apartment while having yummylicious dishes laid out in front of me. And Jun (usually) insists on doing the dishes after, despite my fighting him over it.

Me: Let me do the dishes
Him: No, i want to do it
Me: No la, you cooked already, let ME do it
Him: Cooking is like conducting an orchestra and doing the dishes is like ending it properly…
Me: … … Well, *throws hands up in air* by all means, don’t let me ruin the end of your symphony… *walks away to netflix*
