The Modern

About two weeks ago, Fui and I had lunch at the MOMA's Michelin star restaurant, The Modern, with a few of our friends who were visiting from home. I thought the food was alright but the setting was great- the restaurant was bright despite the cloudy day due to the large windows and there was a power-lunch hour feel to the restaurant.

I could tell that the food was of high quality but I'm really easygoing when it comes to food so I'll just let the pictures do the talking. I do remember that they gave us complementary butternut squash panna cotta before lunch and petit fours after lunch. For our mains, a couple of us had the monkfish while the rest had roast chicken and for dessert were a type of mango brioche pudding and an extremely delectable hazelnut gateau.

Fui wore an asymmetrical cutout top from preen with a uniqlo thermal tee underneath

I wore a generra gold sequin jacket bought two years ago from Tokio7, my trusty striped zara tunic and american apparel leggings.

There's nothing particularly spectacular about this editorial but looking at Miranda so carefree and happy makes me look forward to winter break where I'll be leaving school and making my way to a beach somewhere far away.

Freja Chapter Two

It is still an upsetting week with news update on Daul's death, and reports from her friend who IM-ed her right before she hung herself... Her blog has also been changed to "invite only" status right now for investigation purposes. Still this sinking sadness every time I see her photos around.

That said, Happy Thanksgiving to you all, and I hoped you had a good one. We celebrated it at Hotel Gansevoort in Meatpacking District and had takeout from Pastis which was right beside the hotel. The food was amazing, even though it didn't look too great seeing that they were right out of the takeout boxes.

Just saw some amazing photos from the newly launched biannual Twin Magazine with Freja Beha Erichsen (featured 2 posts ago in amazing biker jacket). The magazine is created by former Lula editor Rebecca Smith and the editorial is shot by Boo George (via Fashion Gone Rouge).

She is such an amazing model too, like Daul, they have their own thing going on which is so inspirational and yet, very necessary because they add so much more personality in the fashion world. And I think I just might actually like the video more than the editorial <3.

Ending on the gender-blending, androgynous fashion note in this post is a New York Times article which reports exactly about this trend: It's All A Blur To Them


Y Daul

Really sad and shocked over hearing the death of amazing model, Daul Kim. What affected me more is that we are the same age. Some pictures to remember her by:






Spent last night reading her blog, and already missed her: 
"there is nothing


but self satisfaction

and high high desires of beautiful beautiful things

for me, it is good looking things

well designed things

good looking things that translate into something more

something more than cigarettes

something more than infatuations

perhaps love

love for things , very good looking things

good looking things that translate into something more

something tender

something of more than self-satisfaction

something more complex



of lost things that hurt" -Daul Kim
