{窗。外}


倚在窗邊,
望向窗外,
現在的你,
身在何處?
窗前的我,
與窗外的你,
已各處一方。

或許,
緣已盡了,
或許,
不再相見,
就此,
說聲再見,
從此,
你在心頭⋯

Thank you, Mr Lee Kuan Yew...


Was sadden by the news feed on my Facebook & Instagram when I woke up this morning. Frankly speaking, I'm mentally prepared for this day to come anytime, however, never will I expect, that I will be this emotionally affected... that I will tear... You are in no way related to me, neither had I seen you in person... And I never really bother about politics...

I had to admit, I might not be sharing same sentiments towards some of the policies imposed.  However, I don't deny that, YOU are such a great man, with visions and deserve all the respect!

In pursuit of developing Singapore, you may have made decisions that do not seems right in the eyes of some. I've heard much criticism, however, I'm in no position to judge.  What seems wrong now, may be the best during then. There's really no need to debate over whether your deeds are right or wrong, for the world has eyes to see what you have sacrificed and contributed in bringing Singapore to what she has become today!

From a third world country to a metropolis; from a little red dot on the map to an internationally known country, it is definitely not an easy task! I realised that many people had no idea of the country that I came from, but know my country as the neighbour /the country up north of Singapore.  This is certainly something that the Singaporeans ought to be proud of -- Singapore is so minute in size but yet it has garnered so much attention from all around the world.

May you rest in peace, Mr Lee Kuan Yew. As suggested by a fellow IGer, we should tear no more and mourn over your demise, but celebrate your life. Heartfelt thanks to you, and rest well Sir...

[Movie Review] Fashion King

The Movie is about how a teenage boy work hard to transform himself from a ‘fashion terrorist’ to a ‘fashion king’ in order to win the heart of the prettiest girl in school.



With a pair of thick glasses and stuffy appearance to boot, high school student Gi-myeong (JOO Won) is mercilessly teased by his classmates on a daily basis at a rural provincial high school, until he jumps on a chance to transfer to a hip high school in Gangnam, Seoul. At the new school, he comes across his dream girl – Hye-jin (PARK Se-young) – who is a beautiful online starlet. For a nobody like Gi-myeong, he can’t even get close to her due to her massive popularity. And to make it worse, her boyfriend, Won-ho (AHN Jae-hyeon) is not only one of the smartest students in school but also comes from a wealthy family, as well as a professional model. Not wanting to let the girl of his dreams just slip through, he vows to transform himself and be a man whom she can admire and be with.


Gi-myeong meets fashionista, Kim Nam-jung (Kim Soung-Oh), who teaches him the essences of fashion, such as ‘cool’ and ‘tight’. And with the help of Nam-jung, Gi-myeong went through the qualifying matches, and realizes what ‘tight’ really means. Seeing his face on TV piques Hye-jin’s attention, he realizes that it is Eun-jin (SULLI) whom he loves.



Finally, Gi-myeong and Won-ho head for the final round. Unfazed by Won-ho’s threats and violence, Gi-myeong enters the finals with incredible conviction as a chance to transform himself into someone he really is in his heart…

Movie Review
The movie is romance comedy, very light hearted and pretty entertaining. The 4 main leads of the movie - JOO Won, AHN Jae-hyeon, SULLI, and PARK Se-young are basically beautiful guys and gals which may be the first reason to attract one to watch the movie.  However, there is more reason for you to catch the film!

First known JOO Won through Bread, Love, and Dream, then followed by Good Doctor.  Love his acting skills.  My impression of him, is always much of a refined gentleman. I think Joo Won is nice looking but will not ever thought of linking him with the term - fashionable, let alone fashionista! However, I do see the transformation in him in the movie from a true blue nerd to a fashion icon. I only got one word for that - "WOW!"  JOO Won great acting skills never fail to evoke emotions of the audience, I was touched and teared slightly towards the end of the movie.

Beside pretty faces, funny scenes and lines that keep you well-entertained, the movie is also trying to convey important messages across:

1. Wearing loads of branded stuff does not makes one with more fashion sense, nor turn one into fashion icon.  The way to "dopeness" is to be confident of yourself, wearing what you feel most comfortable in and bring out your own style.

2. Do not concede to the bullies, but rather, you should stand up for yourself; however violence should not be taken in as the approach to retaliate the bullies.

3. To transform oneself needs much perseverance and determination, and one needs to be clear in his mind, the directions

Fashion King will be screening in Singapore on 12th Mar 2015!
