The Book Affair Performance

If you follow me on instagram you would probably know by now that I recently performed at an event that me and my classmate ran. It was part of our course, but I honestly learned so much from it. Dealing with people and all, not an easy task. It's my first time being so involved in an event, and given the role I was given, I really tried to make sure I didn't screw up my job. There was so much to hold together, so much decision to be made and so much to control, something which I wasn't used to. 
Anyways, I had a splendid time performing with Steven again! I uploaded three of my favourite performances which you can watch below. I know I have much to learn to perfect my singing but at this point with no vocal classes ever, I think I did a pretty good job as this is only my fourth time performing on stage. A lot to work on but I hope you guys enjoy these video. A big thanks to Steven for being an awesome guitar player and friend!

Kimono Fringe

I bought this kimono cardigan awhile ago. I actually forgot I had this in my closet and the other day I was searching for an outer to wear and found it. I must say the details on the back of this kimono cardigan is absolutely beautiful. I'm not a big fan of the kimono cardigan but this one is an exception. It has this insanely lovely Japanese feel but modernized. Paired it in a very casual and chill style.

I also realised I have not used this bag in a long time. I think I might have too many items in my closet that I hardly use/wear because sometimes I'm just too lazy to put them on and would rather look like a big bum. Anyways, hope you guys are well and have a good week ahead. Nx

Raged

Another set of self portraits I said I would share with you guys. I was contemplating on whether I should start on my assignments and I thought to myself, nah, I'll start next week *procrastination at its best*. Anyways, thank you everyone for the lovely feedback regarding my previous self portrait post here. I'm glad that you guys liked it. For me, I personally prefer this set of self portraits over the previous ones. I learn along the way on my editing and such. Again, it's not perfect nor do I expect it to be. It's a learning process and I'm hoping to produce better pictures in the future.
One unedited selfie shot!
I did this set of self portraits out of the blue without much inspiration. Dug out 2 big pieces of old black paper and started off like that. I just wanted to portray something that was dark and personal. If I could look like this everyday I would. Quite frankly, I wouldn't dare go out looking like this because of  the culture here in Malaysia (or maybe just Penang). I guess I could say this set of self portraits is just me, wanting to be me, but not being able to on a daily basis. Does that even make sense? Haha I never really make sense anyways. Once again, your feedback and comments are much appreciated. Until here, hope you're all well! Nx
