FUNNY HAT FRIDAYS: Sakura Cherry Blossom Fresh Flowercrown

FUNNY HAT FRIDAYS: Cherry Blossom Fresh Flowercrown

Hello hello! If you’ve been following my Insta, you may recall a photo I shared of my street in the 2014.

Every spring, without fail, the little plum trees lining my avenue slowly erupt into a glorious bloom of pale pink blossoms. It is really a sight to behold, and its also fun to see their tiny petals gather along the roadside with each passing day as I walk to and from the bus stop. So last September (2016) I couldn’t resist but to make a cherry blossom flower crown.

The Sheep in Wolves' Clothing- FUNNY HAT FRIDAY: Ball Chrysanthemum Fresh Flowercrown

FUNNY HAT FRIDAY: Ball Chrysanthemum Fresh Flowercrown

For those who don’t know, my brothers and I are event DJs who often play for wedding receptions. On a semi-related note, something I learnt from my own brother’s wedding is that even for flower-lovers such as my sister-in-law and I, there are simply too many flowers to take home. And so, rather than let all the flowers go to waste, as part of our pack-up for the night I have started asking for some of the extra table flowers that would be thrown out otherwise (hehehe). The last wedding we DJ’d at had lots of lovely ball chrysanthemums- cue a Funny Hat Friday.

LOST IN ASIA PICTORIAL: Chinese New Year Cheongsam

I was in Kuala Lumpur during the first week of January; my second trip to Malaysia. Like last time, the shopping malls and streets are adorned with bright red and gold decorations in preparation for Chinese New Year which (depending on the lunar calendar) occurs sometime from mid-January to mid-February. And like last time, some of my friends and cousins were buying new cheongsams to wear for the auspicious day. This year, I decided to join in too.
