{ dedicated to love } January 21, 2010


What’s your love story? I bet we all have different ones. And sometimes, many and not just one (I’m not promoting infidelity. So please read on…). Love keeps you warm, keeps you alive, and keeps you hopeful. Thus, you need to love yourself too.


Sometime ago, a friend asked me, “What is love?”. A big question, and a difficult one to answer by little me. I think, generally, love is when you share an important part of yourself with someone. It may only be a part, and not the whole, as we ourselves may not know what our whole is like. With this, I think love takes many forms – Father and child, parent and child, husband and wife, siblings, friends, lovers, work partners, and one-sided admiration. The word is ‘share’, meaning ‘give and receive’, and not ‘taking’ all the time. Give selflessly without contemplating and calculating what you will receive in return. Receive without guilt, without taking it for granted, and with heartfelt gratitude and humility.


This Valentine’s Day, celebrate love. Not just BF-GF love, husband-wife love, but the people whom you love, and who love you.


Dedicated to the many kinds of love…

Loved you yesterday,
Love you still,
Always have, always will.

And thank you for loving me and pling ♥





{ lovely as a tree } October 22, 2009


First of all, apologies for this late upload and for ‘disappearing’ for a while. Been back since last week, a little jet-lagged and my mum has taken ill. But she’s alright now (Praise to the Lord! And thanks for all your prayers! I feel very blessed.), feisty as ever. I’m finding some time amidst shuttling between home and hospital to get pling ready. I’m excited about my new pieces, especially after my trip and the tons of inspiration I got from it.


First up, trees. I continued to be inspired by them. Gardens as well. I’ve seen the most beautiful garden in my life. I think our summery island has none to compare. But still, we have plenty of trees. Sharing 2 of my pictures with you (I had a real hard time picking them out of my thousands of pictures)…

I can’t agree with Wilson Flagg more when he said that all that is cheerful and delightful in our memories will always be associated with trees or against the background of trees. Sharing another quotation that I like. I hope you will find the quote and these pieces as delightful as I did creating them.

The trees are God’s great alphabet:
With them He writes in shining green
Across the world His thoughts serene.

whim•si•cal (hwim-zi-kuh), adj. playfully quaint or fanciful, esp. in an appealing and amusing way; playful; quirky; eccentric; mischievous; unconventional


If you feel any of the above, these necklaces are for you. Wear them out to add that spring to your step! Be bold to wow even if you are feeling a little lazy to dress up. These necklaces are perfect with your plain tee and jeans or a printed skirt. Coupled with a lazy afternoon, you are set for a wonderful time out in town!


As these necklaces are full of character, each with a story to tell, a mood to convey, avoid dangling earrings or elaborate drops that will crowd your style. Your top can be of any color (as long as it’s different from the main pendant’s color), even with some frills, but no prints would be best in order to bring out the humorous disposition of these accessories.


Enjoy them! What’s life without exhibiting that witticism of yours?
