CALLING ALL ASIAN KIDS: Growing up, we all know what it means when on vacation in Thailand/China/Vietnam/Hong Kong/Malaysia, your parents say, “Come, today we go market.” 🤦🏻♀️
For the white kids, this means “You all later just sit down, stop playing, be quiet and behave yourself. You want new clothes for Chinese New Year or not? Okay, then behave.”
So you get dragged there begrudgingly. It’s humid, it’s stuffy, it’s packed out with fellow Singaporean families and there’s legit no place to “all just sit down”. For HOURS, we would follow our parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles going from stall to stall (there are HUNDREDS), and watch them bargain over fake Nike clothing, Converse shoes and Gucci bags. “Wah! $6 for a t shirt for my son?! No no no, cannot. $4 I give you and maybe I’ll buy two.” (We are Chinese and we are shrewd 😂)
You’ll also be forced to decide on the spot the 5 skirts that THEY picked out for you because you clearly have no taste in clothing, THEY DO. “I told you to stop hitting your brother! Do you want me to slap you? Hurry up and choose! Which one you want?”. Only for you to quietly choose the pink one and then be sternly told, “No no no, the other 4 colours are better. Don’t take the pink one.” Erm, okay, thanks for asking. 🙄
And they won’t stop bargaining until it’s a fraction of the asking price 😂 Even if it’s to save $1 (“it’s still money, children! You all don’t know the value until you start working”), it’s the Chinese way so we do it anyway.
On this trip to Ho Chi Minh, I was brought back to those days. This is me with my godchild, Hayes, after traipsing the entire market. Still bored, still waiting, whilst the same bargaining tactics are executed - just like before. Because some things never change, especially when you’re an Asian kid and I’m so proud to be one ✌🏻 #YourEverydayAsian
Wearing this gorgeous shirt and skirt from @majorminorstore that i rent from @styletheoryid On Demand 😍
Sedikit berbeda dari Style Theory yang biasa, kalau “On Demand” ini koleksi nya dari designer, premium, dan lebih buat ke acara yang lebih formal. Harga sewa nya di itung per baju dan masa sewa nya hanya 4 hari per baju. Yaz! Tambah lagi solusi per out fit-an buat ke acara atau nyanyi. Go check their website id.styletheory.co/on-demand and browse the collection! ✨

18 days to go for 2020 to start.
Every night kids and we do a gratitude prayer to count our blessings.
I have been thinking of what I am grateful for this year and the list is more or less similar to my 2018 list. Grateful for parents health, friends, good work, meeting new people, kids and Vaibhav being at a happy space.
However, what I am grateful this decade is my resilience, self-confidence and a kind heart. This decade has truly been instrumental in me discovering myself. I would have loathed if my introduction where always so and so’s daughter, someones wife/mother.
I started a whole new career line in 2011, and now 2019 made me shif gears again. Heres to new adventures.

Dream a little dream with me 💃
Budapest was a sweet city just like the fairytale. Beautiful castle, wonderful classic music, and even the café is as pretty as this. Would you like to visit Budapest someday? Tell me which city do you feel as the cutest one 🥰✨
Note: It's not your regular kimono. Featuring a colour pop floral design matched with blue fur cuffs, this is a true new gen kimono made for the modern fashionista. 💃 #womenofstyletheory

I believe a lot in the power of the mind. Whenever I’m gonna fall sick, I’ll tell myself that ‘you will beat the virus and there is no way you will be defeated’ and I really didn’t fall sick. It has worked for the past year with zero MC!
So I tried mind powering that I can speak fluent Thai in this trip but that didn’t quite work out with the confused looks I got. I guess I needed to meditate more on that, 3 days wasn’t enough 🤷🏻♀️ #womenofstyletheory#styletheorysg#ruivaca
