Melbourne, I love you


After my 3-year stint in Melbourne, it's great to be back home in Malaysia. Nevertheless, Melbourne kissed my heart. The first few months back in Malaysia was difficult, just like everyone else who has had the privilege of living in the "world's most livable city", I couldn't help but compare the order, the etiquette, the culture, the food.

I got so used to everything being so convenient and orderly around there, I started dreading days here where I was stuck at home with no easy links to public transport, left with incomparable meals emulating Melbourne brunches, and a sudden loss of security.  I soon realized that I was suffering from Post Melbourne Syndrome. Dramatic? Yes. But anyone who has lived there would tell you, the struggle is real.

After a while however, I got over it. When opportunity presented itself for me to head back to Melbourne for a University Award Ceremony, I was on the fence. A week and a half later, I flew 6,364 km to my happy place.

One week. Mid-May. That, was the closure I needed.

Before flying back from Melbourne for good in December, (and being in a complete rut), my boyfriend said he'd "Make it as if Melbourne never existed." Well, the city still remains a part of me and forever will be. But I've put it behind, ready for new adventures in my home country.

Prabal Gurung Resort 2016

It's been a while since I've written in this space, but upon seeing several images of Prabal Gurung's Resort 2016 collection on Instagram, I just had to take a look at the whole collection. Inspired by his vacation to Belize, the collection seems so effortlessly sporty and elegant. To me, the dresses crafted seemed not only for the usual ladies who rock up in beautiful dresses at dinner parties but also particularly suitable for ladies who don't necessarily look at a dress as their first option for a night out. In colours of pure magnolia whites, soft wood leather, berry red hints and the midnight sea, the collection exudes strength and structure paired with what Prabal Gurung himself called "subtlety and ease". I always admire Prabal Gurung, his beliefs and his work, they always look beautifully tailored and elegant. Just look at that finale dress and that midnight sea V-neck dress embroidered with pearls and crystals.
