Prosperity.

Took all my willpower to not end my title with 'burger' wtf.

It's Chap Goh Mei! And for that, I declare it is apt to blog about my CNY outfit on 'chor yat' (first day of Chinese New Year). You all would have gotten a sneak peek of it here.

Anyway, backstore on my CNY outfit is that I actually got a green dress for the occasion! But I later read somewhere that green is an unlucky color for people born in the year of Ox FML. This was barely 2 weeks before CNY, and I had to scramble for something red (supposed lucky color for me). Thank god I was struck brilliance and thought of this AZORIAS red skirt that I have kept for myself!


Tada, my outfit. I think I didn't do too shabbily by putting everything together on the morning itself eh? :P


Didn't buy new underwear for CNY so I compensated with new bag wtf.


Super love the lace detailing of this top! Jing has one too. It's already sold out on AZORIAS though!



Crochet lace trimmed blouse AZORIAS
Red floral lace chain miniskirt: AZORIAS
Gold necklace with oversized stone: Korea
Gold spiked bracelets: Korea
Nude scalloped pumps with laced-up heels: Tokyo
Studded skull clutch: Zhuhai

By the way, I have a story to share. Last year, my boyfriend told me that angpaos are luck that people bestow on us, and thus, we are not supposed to use the money, as it will mean using up the luck. Instead, we are supposed to keep the money for one whole year till the next CNY. Being naive and gullible trusting of my boyfriend, I really didn't touch a single cent of last year's angpaos! And on CNY eve this year, I happily announced to him that I am so excited to open last year's angpaos, and he was like, "Huh, you really believe ar? It is just some myth that my cousin told me."

WTF. -_____-

Anyway, have any of you heard of this story before, and do any of you practice it? Share! Because whether or not I will get to open my angpaos this year will depend on it wtf.

I started feeling nervous after reading your tweet that day about angpao money being equivalent to luck. but if it's a myth then I feel better now wtf cos I always use my angpao money especially the ones with loose change for toll fare hahah!

jessie: I compromised-- saved part of the money and took part of it for spending! :D


xiang yun: Haha, I love spending the loose change on food! Makes me feel very rich wtf

Hi Hui Wen,

I have been following your blog for a few years now but it's my first time commenting on it. I enjoy reading your blog as I find it entertaining and I love how open and honest you are about everything you write. Congrats on Azorias - albeit 2 years late! It is very inspiring indeed - go girl power! Keep it up and I wish you every success in your business, love, health and everything else:)

Regarding this post of yours, admittedly I spend my ang pow money in the following year and it has been a tradition of mine since 2011. Don't worry, you are not the only one - hehe:p

Just like you, I love fashion and accessories, especially. Hope we can keep in touch and perhaps you can give me some fashion tips and vice-versa:D take care now!
