dismantle, repair.

Sometimes the best creative executions comes from boozed discussions at night with some of your closest friends. Having said that, they also stem from days of extreme boredom, with this shoot as an end result. Holed up in our hotel room, dressed to impress with nowhere to go, after what can only be described as the “Chinese Wedding Experience” with some of the nicest down to earth people I have met. Hoping you all like these images as much as I do, stepping a bit out of the comfort zone, with the “try to look sexy” kind feel with the title of this post, a tribute to one of my favourite bands: Anberlin who I will be seeing live for the last time EVER this year.

Caught a beautiful glow through the windows of the Saint Sophia Cathedral on our brief visit to this landmark. The interior was deteriorating with paint stripping and mould eating away at the wall paper. Water stains could be seen on the roof from where the water had leaked in during storms, yet this Saint Sophia Cathedral somehow has a beautiful nostalgic charm leaving one to wonder what it could have been like in it’s heyday.

I always wanted to go to Harbin based on pictures found on the internet. Due to it’s history and proximity to the Soviet Union dating back to the 1890s, much of the cities architecture consists of soviet style architecture. Mandy and I spent only one morning visiting the must go tourists destinations such as the Saint Sophia Cathedral (travel diary coming soon). Here’s what I’ve coined, my Harbin stomping ground outfit,  a quick outfit for Monday, post weekend back to work blues.

Olympus 17mm f/1.8 Prime Lens // Tom Ford Rouge Fatal Lipstick // MAC Russian Red Matte Lipstick // Tom Ford Shanghai Lily Fragrance

I was in Hong Kong for a quick business trip last week and meet up with a friend who I’d haven’t seen for two long years. Hong Kong is the cosmetic capital for me, so whenever I’m there, I always tend to stock up on makeup and fragrances etc.

This time around, I picked up a new Tom Ford Shanghai Lily fragrance. Ever since getting the Noir de Noir for Christmas last year, I have been completely hooked on his Private Blends Collection. Since everyone has also been raving about the lippy too, I picked up the limited edition in Rouge Fatal. I also refilled on my favourite MAC Russian Red lippy and bought a new lens for my Olympus camera, ready for some epic adventures with Mandy in Harbin this weekend.

Work has been slowing down lately, so I have been using this spare time to clean out my hard drive and finding unpublished images from last year, which will hopefully make an appearance on the blog soon.

In the mean time, happy hump day lovers!
