How to Style Stiletto Heels with Class

I'm always a fan of comfy sneakers. In fact, I'd pick sneakers over heels any day if I can. But there are some days where stiletto heels are needed. Stiletto heels have that perfect element that can boost any woman’s confidence in a mere of seconds of wearing them on. 

Some women like myself do not prefer wearing the sky high heels on a day out but wearing them once in a while can definitely perk up outfit and character. In fact, women can create their own personal style and match their favourite stiletto heels with any clothing. 

There are 3 ways a woman can pull off their stiletto heels, looking amazing and fabulous without ever feeling out of date.





The first look attempt, and probably my favourite style, will be to wear those stiletto high heels with a casual outfit. Pair stiletto heels with a smart casual outfit such as blouse and pants for a complete, simple yet fancy look. Ultimate comfort and style. 




The next style look that women can wear their stiletto heels is with a dress/blouse+skirt. This is the perfect combo for the feminine sophisticated look  perfect for dinner parties, date or even for work. Opt for a body-con dress and heels at work for that professional look or wear the heels with a cute A-line dress to achieve an elegant appearance.




In Malaysia, you can be sure to find denim shorts in most peoples' closets because of the weather here. So, ladies can also switch their sneakers and flats with a pair of heels to match with their denim shorts. Dress up the casual denim shorts with a nice pair of stiletto heels for a girlish appearance. The best thing in pairing a pair of high heels with denim shorts is that you are allowed to be creative in picking the shoe colour. The stiletto high heels is definitely an easy but effective match with simple casual clothes like denim shorts.

So, anyone fancy putting on stiletto heels yet?

Rocky Road

My mum recently came back from her company + personal trip and brought back some real goodies. Among them: Marks & Spencer Rocky Road Mini Bites.



Jo's idea of indulgence, put the rocky road with ice cream: 




Good eh?

Last quarter of my second last semester! Now is the period of time where the real stress kicks in. Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines. Besides that, nothing much really. Bought and sold some of my camera gears, I really need to stop because it's getting out of hand. But hey, look at the picture above? That bokeh. Justified?

Anyway, I don't have much to share for now. Maybe I'll talk about the new additions in my Coke collection in the next post. ;)

Till then.

DSPTCH Heavy Camera Sling Strap (Grey)

Since the beginning of the year, I've been wanting to get a strap for my Olympus camera ever since I switched system. When I sold my Nikon D7000, I forgot to kept my Matin neoprene strap. So in the past 10 months, I was on a quest to get a suitable strap. 

Anyway, I wanted to find a sling strap and shortlisted a few candidates:
1) Artisan & Artist Easy Slider E25R
2) BlackRapid Metro Strap
3) BlackRapit The SHOT
4) DSPTCH Sling Strap
4) Carry Speed M-Sling

Price wise, it differs from one brand to another but none of straps I listed is actually below RM100. Why the heck are camera accessories so expensive? I was contemplating Carry Speed's strap because I found a few stores carrying it at a rather good price but at last I didn't get it cause it was still new in the market and I don't know how durable it is. I trust reviews too much.

So finally, a few weeks ago, I settled for DSPTCH.


DSPTCH is based in San Francisco and in the last 10 months I kept searching but failed to find anyone in Malaysia selling this strap. Finally, not too long ago, I saw Major Drop posted that it carries DSPTCH stuffs. Lo and behold - they also carried quite a number of camera straps from DSPTCH. That was it. I figure it's time and I saved up some money.



Kena poison sudah.

I got myself the grey color although I wanted the black initially but it was out of stock at that time I ordered. Pfft.. Anyhow I thought the grey go really well with the silver OM-D EM-5 body. I really love the strap! Durable and I like the material. It's rather comfortable but I have yet to carry the camera for long hours so we shall see. I also like the fact that it's super convenient when I want to disconnect the strap.

Verdict: I love it! Can't wait to really utilise it to the maximum.

Now, for the paracord wrist strap... :P

Edit: Someone asked me where I got the DSPTCH strap although I mentioned I got it from Major Drop. Heh. Perhaps it wasn't clear, my apologies. Anyway if you would like to get a DSPTCH, go ahead and and get it from Major Drop (here)

Win A Honda Jazz 1.5L S with Domino’s Pizza x Mountain Dew Blue Shock!


Two Fridays ago, I had the privilege to attend the launch of Domino’s Pizza collaboration with Mountain Dew Blue Shock at Domino’s Pizza Subang Perdana outlet with a few other bloggers.



When I first got into the restaurant, I saw this striking bottle on the tables. What is it? It’s Mountain Dew Blue Shock! This is Mountain Dew’s fourth variation, after having three flavours in line namely the Mountain Dew original, Live Wire (zesty orange flavour) and Pitch Black (citrus grape flavour).


Domino’s Malaysia is collaborating with Permanis Sandilands Sdn Bhd, the manufacturer and distributor of Mountain Dew in Malaysia for a brand new campaign but more details on this later.



In all honesty, I wasn’t very fond of the blue color but anyway I still tried the new variation of Mountain Dew (it’s raspberry citrus flavour) and it’s better than what I expected (skeptic me, lol) – the drink was really refreshing.. I finished my cup and got a second serving ;)

Anyway, I won’t keep you waiting as the highlight of the event was definitely this:


The all-new Honda Jazz in striking blue colour! The car is worth RM72,800, and it is up for through Domino’s Pizza’s ‘Eat, Drink and Win Contest’! The contest mechanics is really simple and they can be summed in three simple steps:

1.      Purchase of Mountain Dew Blue Shock 1.5L is required
2.      Calculate the number of Mountain Dew Blue Shock 1.5L bottles that can fit the All-New Honda Jazz
3.      Fill up the form and complete the slogan

Easy right? :D As a comper myself, I’d say that the contest mechanics is straightforward and easy to understand. You may be wondering why there is a slogan right? The organisers are predicting that many will get the answer right, so the slogan serves as a tie-breaker. 

Domino’s Pizza understands that in this day and age, not everyone eats Domino’s Pizza at their restaurant as some would take away, order online or call for delivery. So it’s the same with this contest – you can order over the physical counter at any Domino’s Pizza outlet, call for delivery or order online, and you will still be eligible to enter the contest :D 


 Linda Hassan, Senior Marketing Manager, Domino’s Pizza Malaysia & Singapore

Linda Hassan was present at the launch to share with us more information about the contest and even gave us some tips! Some of the tips that she shared was to get as many bottles Mountain Dew Blue Shock 1.5L bottles as you can and try to fill up your car (if it’s a Honda Jazz, even better!) and you can probably gauge how many bottles it will take to fill up the All-New Honda Jazz. Another tip: Don’t forget to include the car boot!


Well of course, an event will not be complete without food for us Malaysians.. and so we had a pizza party! :D Yay! Oh ya, we were told that there is no such thing as a fryer in a Domino’s Pizza kitchen. Everything is oven-baked! 


Did I mention it was my first time trying their Chocolate Lava Cake? .. I love it!





Anyway, one last thing! The “Eat, Drink & Win A Car” contest runs from 8th September till 19th October 2014. So hurry up and maybe, just maybe, you are the lucky one to bring home the car! Well, as I always say.. if you never try, you never know!

The full T&C and more information about the contest can be found on www.dominos.com.my J
