My Collection, so far.


Thanks to the collaborative efforts of Mr DW, Ms PoToY and also Ms Tsidorbelei, I manage to have a small collection of Starbucks cards from around the world. :)

Mr dw's contribution: From the Land Down Under

The one on the top left features Melbourne’s Flinder’s Street Station and the city trams. On the bottom left, it’s the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the ferry. On the top right, it’s one of the generic designs for the Starbucks card, featuring a comfy, totally sleep-able couch and a soothing cup of vanilla latte. It’s summer time on the bottom right, featuring Starbuck’s yummy frappuccino’s and some lazy deck chairs. Strawberry frappuccino is my favourite! ♥

Ms Tsidorbelei's contribution: U.K.

On the left is another generic design of the Starbucks card: shots like honey dripping off a spoon, that is how you tell a good espresso shot from a bad one. Big Ben on the right, need me say more?

These two are from the U.S. Got them when Ms Tsidorbelei and Mr dw were in New York.

2009’s Christmas edition: WISH.

It comes in a neat little pouch with a patchwork dove.

Ms PoToY's contribution

Last but not least, the 2010 Vancouver winter Olympics Starbucks card.

This is my favourite design thus far.

The glittering snowflakes on the card is ♥

Thank you everyone for helping out! Maybe I should start collecting on my own now :D

My new love :)


I am having an intensely upset stomach right now.

But I insisted that I would tell the world right here and right now, who or rather, what my new love is.

May I present you






my new, super vintage ah ma handbag from Zara TRF. :) I stumbled upon it while window shopping in Milan (I is poor, hence, didn’t even thought of window shopping in Miu Miu or Prada, even though I ♥ Miu Miu to bits). One good thing I discovered while shopping in Milan is that they have so many good designs to choose from; four stories worth of choices. Best part is, of course, the 11% worth of tax refunds. It’s like shopping and knowing that you’d definitely get a discount of 11% at the end of the day.

I must make sure that my grandma never sees this bag. She’d already “confiscated” my Coach handbag a month ago. Sadly, I could only say, we share the same tastes in bags.

The bag is opened by flipping up both latches located at the sides of the bag.

It opens up like a purse, which is a feature that I really like.

You gotta love trf’s attention to detail and how when ah ma bag is opened up, it has bright pink labels with super cute messages. This kind of reminds me of Juicy Couture.

I feel giddy every time I open up my bag to see the words “TRF loves you”. :D I love you too. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

“Don’t forget your keys!!”

Good for a certain someone who will never remember where her keys are. :D
