1     Harley Davidson Black Label men's vintage leather biker jacket
2     Acne Studios Gibson Clean Black leather jacket
3     Saint Laurent classic motorcycle jacket

Nothing says James Dean more than a leather biker jacket in noir. 

It's a classic nod to the "I don't care" attitude with a perfect balance of nonchalance and slick. If you don't believe me, just pop by katelovesme.

I've always been screaming and dying inside saving up for one of my own and while the Acne/SLP ones are great candidates, the Harley Davidson is holy grail. I want a genuine HAMC apparel on my back, dammit.

free fallin'

It's the most wonderful time of the year but I can't seem to enjoy it because school is being unrelenting and incessantly pain-inducing. Definitely wishing for a Christmas miracle.

we live outside the touch of time

Aurelia aurita (moon jelly)

Took time off this overwhelmingly suicidal academic semester to immerse in aquatic wonder on Amber's 21st birthday celebration.

"My dear sister,

I know its been an arduous journey to arrive at today.

You, the middle one, were constantly caught between me, the oldest, and XH, the youngest. In addition, you've had to manage the majority of our familial problems recently, with or without me.

On this day, your older brother would like for you to have knowledge that I see daylight of your actions, and appreciation is all I have for you.

The elation of you achieving your dreams and falling in love were little victories won and I'll never be an obstacle to either, simply because I've the utmost trust in you.

Circulating in cyberspace lies a paragraph of text which begins with 'Your brother is your first male friend'. Indeed I am and I plan to play the role of protector if need be, in any interpretation, consistently."

Happy 21st, 
Zi Xin.

Your life is just beginning.

Black is such a versatile and confusing colour. Worn from head to toe, it says "don't bother me" as much as it says "look at me". I wonder which one am I.

you are the sun and moon to me

Yours truly's utmost attempts to shake off the "stoic apathy" approach to everything in life has gone swimmingly UNWELL. Running out of will to breathe.

easy, breezy, exhausted

This is the face of exhaustion due to academic commitments, I need a break.

fragrant harbour

All roads they lead me here.

Always familiar yet refreshingly foreign.

It's beginning to seem as if the remedy for anything is to pack and jet off to Hong Kong on a whim. This place is as good as the word "love" gets.
