Along the Yellow Brick Road of Louis Vuitton x Virgil Abloh

During my recent vacation in Singapore, one of the more remarkable things that caught my attention was the Louis Vuitton Men’s Spring-Summer 2019 Collection. If all of you could remember, this is the debut collection of Virgil Abloh as the Men’s Artistic Director of the French fashion house.

LV x Virgil Abloh Oz-2

It was an interesting bridge from Marina Bay Sands to the Louis Vuitton Island—from all the shops to suddenly see this display. As a huge fan of “Wizard of Oz”, I just had to stop and follow the yellow brick road!

Because, no one owes you anything

 

Entering the year, I’ve been trying to wrap my head around the adage that “no one owes you anything”. Perhaps, if you asked me what I felt about it a few months back, I would agree wholeheartedly. No exceptions to the rule. Thinking otherwise makes you selfish. A self-centered, spoiled brat. But, the past few months I’ve been thinking about it, and trying to wrap my head around it, and trying to accept it again.

Why I got myself a tattoo

December 20, 2017 will remain to be one of the most memorable days of my life as it’s the day I got my first tattoo. Why I only got myself to typing out this story is beyond me. But after finding out that some close friends still don’t know about it, I guess it’s worth sharing.

You see, I have always wanted to get a tattoo. Something about being inked fascinated me, and the idea of owning one’s body in that sense just appealed to me. Overthinking it? For sure.

When you have to retreat

One thing which not a lot of people know about me is that I particularly do not like December. There is the traffic rush, the heavy workload before the shutdown, the pain of arranging Christmas reunions with friends, and so much more. These are recurring things which could be anticipated, but there’s really no way to get around those. Unfortunately.

Beyond those, which I am certain a lot of people encounter, what doesn’t excite me about December is the surge of self-doubt and uneasiness that I feel as the year is about to come to a close. It comes with the whole “reflection” of how the year was, but this year, it’s different.

Stronger, Better, and Soaring Higher

If you ask me, 2017, despite the numerous challenges and low-points encountered, has been such a fantastic year for me. The growth, the opportunities, the people I met; all of these contributed to making all the ~365 days worth it.

Seizing the day, everyday.

If we’re friends or if you have been following me on Instagram, you would know that this year has been eventful for me. In the workplace, I have been given accounts I sincerely enjoy servicing. A lot of challenges have been given to me so I may refine my skills. Most recently, my Director has advised me of the added function to my current role…which is intimidating and exciting, at the same time.
