Sale: Celine Lipstick Mini

May 11th, 2014 No Comments »


Okay. I’m probably going to regret doing this but as my SA says.. if you don’t use it, lose it. So.. I’m making the very very bold move of selling a bag that took me forever to acquire..

I was initially intending to complete my Celine Luggage Tote range by having a red, blue, yellow and green in the various sizes. Actually, I have completed the collection. The Mini is in Lipstick Red, the Micro in Citron and Grass Green and the Royal Blue in Nano size. BUT, as my SA has persuaded me, sell the bag off since I hardly use it though I take it out to admire it every now and then – I’m in love with the color..So, I’m actually thinking of getting another red or pink in a Nano and Micro size. Hence, the decision to let go of the Lipstick.

I’m frankly half half about it and might regret it when it gets sold as to acquire another one will cost more, yes more. Regardless of size. That’s how much the price of Celine has shot up over the year.. insane madness really. But I guess it’s the limited availability of the bag that makes it in much demand and the price continues to creeps, no, shoots up. Same situation for Chanel :(

Sale: Pre-Loved Bags

January 4th, 2014 1 Comment »

It’s been awhile since I’ve sold my pre-loved items here. I did some spring-cleaning and here’s some of it for sale. Please click for more details and photos and interested parties may contact me at –


Feel free to ask questions via email. Please do note the following terms and conditions –

Pricing includes mailing fee via courier. I’ll aim to send out the courier within 3-5 workings days (after receiving payment) and will inform accordingly or otherwise, should I not be in Singapore at the moment. If you would like to do a self-collection, it will only be from my office at Pasir Panjang (Mapletree Business City) between 9am-5pm, Mon-Fri depending on whether I’m in Singapore.

Please email me for the price should you opt for self-collection and arrangements will be discussed over email.

Prices quoted are all in SGD, payment would be via internet banking transfer before item is mailed out or self-collected. Sale will be completed once payment is made and I’ve acknowledged receipt. Should there be multiple interests on a particular item, I will sell the item based on timing of when email confirmation for purchase comes in. Once sold, no returns or refunds.

Emails requesting for more details or queries on the items doesn’t constitute a sale so I would be unable to reserve the item unless a confirmed interest is stated.


I’m unable to mail outside of Singapore due to high courier charges (sorry! :( ).

Apologies for the long terms and conditions but I’ve had a couple of sales that fell through and I pretty much wasted my time making trips to and fro.. here’s a reference to my previously sold pre-loved items on this space.

It takes grit and determination

December 17th, 2011 No Comments »

My trainining for the upcoming marathon next Feb isn’t coming along too well. Working full time with crazy work schedules and training for a full marathon is challenging. I have no idea how my colleagues train for a blady Ironman! You need heaps of discipline, determination and positive thinking to get you through it. Trust me. When you’re in the office from 7am to 9 at night, without time to even lunch, running is probably one of the last thing on your mind.

I am now frantically trying to get back on schedule and thanks to best bud D and the panda, who are both training for their Ironman, I have some company. These guys are A-Mazing. They wake up early in the morning to put in the hours and earlier this week, I was dragged out for an early morning run. It was hard to refuse especially when D said he’ll pick me up from my house. Doh. How to say no to that?

So it was waking up at 5ish, waited for the pickup at 615am and then we did a slow run for 90 minutes. Even though it was slow, we still walked here and there. Tells you a lot about my current fitness! But, I’m glad I did it. Thanks to the two monkeys for the motivation. I’d better make full use of my gym membership which is wasting away!
