I was kind of dragged to go to into this gallery by my friend, but I still gladly went because it was by Burberry. What I didn't know was it also showcased sculptures by Henry Moore that complemented all the pretty clothes. I have to be honest though, I felt so uncool when I came into this event. Majority of the people who went looked so cool (translation: fashionable and unique and not your basic b*tches). I wanted to take pictures of them to show you but I didn't want to look like a creep. One thing is for sure though is that I felt so inspired after. That creative trip to the gallery sparked something in my brain that I really needed. Also, I felt so inspired to up my fashion game. After I've seen all those people dressed so well in an unconventional manner made me want to do the same. After all fashion is a form of self expression, right?
After the gallery, we walked through London's horrible stormy weather to get to Lao Cafe where they served Thai food. I was so stuffed after, I just wanted to go to sleep. Which in other words, the food was really really good.

These are my favourite shots from the Christian union formal dinner! It was a lovely evening seeing everyone dressed up. Not too shabby at all. The event was part of the whole week discussing where to find true happiness. In which, I'm sure all of us have different beliefs on what true happiness is and where to find it. But let me just tell you of someone who gives you unconditional love, mercy and grace - Jesus. He who died on the cross for you, because he loves you. Knowing this makes me happy in a way that I am secure of who I am. I know I have a Father who welcomes me back home every time I run away and turn my back. Who created the whole universe and still thinks of me.
What is true happiness for you?

This is a photodiary showing the streets of London taken with Fujifilm XT10. It was a perfect sunny day, a great contrast on what it's usually like. I wandered around with a camera on my hand and went from Trafalgar square to Chinatown to Leicester Square.

I joined the mirrorless camera family! I scraped off my savings account to buy a new Fujifilm XT10 camera. I chose it mainly because it's much more affordable compared to other top mirrorless cameras, and the reviews are nothing but great. Maybe if my skills get better and I save enough again, I'd buy the Sony a7 mark II next, which is the camera I also really want. But so far, I'm really happy with my Fuji. Broke, but happy.

I had a late birthday treat for my 22nd last December. Mostly because a lot of uni work was on the way but also pay day hasn't arrived yet. When I finally had a chance, I booked a fancy dinner at London's Sky garden. It was originally supposed to be a dinner for me and my best friend who is also a December baby. We were supposed to celebrate together, but she was plagued with flu all of a sudden and was too sick to function. I, however, couldn't cancel. Especially when not turning up will cost me £50. Might as well go and have a great experience, instead of paying all that money for nothing. So, my sister was my back-up plan.

I know some people have negative connotations on resolutions especially on the new year. Mainly because it never gets done and nothing happens. But for me, I don't think there's anything wrong with trying to set goals and becoming a better person than you were before. It doesn't have to be the new year, you just have to decide when to start and why you're doing it.
Here are 5 things I want myself to be better at and will work on this year and the years after :)

London is undeniably a very busy city. Everyone always seems to be in a hurry to get to work, be on time for the trains and catch the tube. In its tucked away corners though, there are peaceful patches of nature. Perfect for when work becomes too much and you're in need of alone time.
Holland Park is located at Kensington. Can I just say that Kensington is the place I'd love to live in someday. It screams posh and classy. #NeighbourhoodGoals Hopefully I can afford it one day. Haha.

Every year I say this, where has the time gone?? Although time seem to have gone so quickly, if I think about it carefully, quite a lot has actually happened. I won't gush about it being the best year of my life, but it is a good, significant one. I know 2016 was a crappy year for the whole world with all the politics and wars going on, but I can't deny all the good that happened to me as well. Having said that, it actually made me more grateful because despite of all the bad going on around, I still had my ups.
For 2016 I am thankful for..

Here I am, cramming my Christmas post and just about making it before Christmas eve. Haha. I just wanted to show you guys the Christmas-y things I've bought whilst I mazed through a huge crowd of people, waited in the long queues and tried to finish my Christmas shopping.
Also, I've answered the Christmas tag at the end to add more to the Christmas spirit. Because honestly, this year is the least Christmas-y I felt. I think I have said Christmas repeatedly too many times now. So let's crack on with the post and again, Happy Christmas!
