Broke out one of my favourite dresses one day, if only to air the rarely-worn piece out. I’ve been getting more relaxed over showing bra straps nowadays, so you know, this dress might be showing up more often now. I think the last time I wore this was three years ago now! Wow, I must really like this piece for it to stay as long as it did without being worn, given my recent bouts of spring-cleaning.
Showing bra straps used to irk me, but I’ve been trying to let go of a lot of obsessive tendencies of late in order to grow as a better person. In a way, Ottie’s been good for practising my patience with all of life’s inconsistencies.
This bag woven with strips of manga pages was also a memory of LA (post here).
When did this outfit become to laden with nostalgia?! And what are these feels threatening to spill out of my robotic heart. There are things I miss about Los Angeles (food, weather, online shopping, grand sales, random talks with strangers), but I’ve never regretted coming back to Singapore. I don’t really understand why people would think I do, but that is a rant for another time. I realise that I’ve been bottling up internal grievances and arguments (the previous post was an indication of that), so please do not be alarmed if some of that spills over on my posts out of the blue.
I have a lot on my mind sometimes.
Ottie and I wandered over to Telok Ayer Street in search for dinner, and it so happened that the Singapore HeritageFest was going on when we arrived! What a pleasant surprise. The street was lined with colourful lights and people in costumes harking back to the good old days, images which my parents would appreciate, but of which I’d only ever heard of.

I guess it turned out to be a nostalgic day.
