Take it like a soldier; don't you fucking cry



1. ASOS Taylor Shoe Boots    2. ASOS 90's Strappy Bodycon Dress    3. F21 Denim Shorts

4. F21 Abstract Geo Scarf     5. F21 Terrier Tweezers

Trying out a new style of loot post today! Lmk what you think. Super tedious to combine into one nice picture though -_- !

These boots are a nightmare to walk in but they are SUPER gorgeous. Not sure if worth the crazy arch-bending, but chio nevertheless. Also, I tend to buy useless things leh I think I might have a problem. See below for example.



6. F21 Southwestern Paddle Brush     7. F21 Southwestern Cosmetic Pouch     8. F21 Metallic Triangle Print Cosmetic Pouch
    9. F21 Striped Paddle Brushes    10. F21 Metallic Triangle Paddle Brush    11. F21 Metallic Triangle Print Mirror

See? One head, 4 brushes #logicftw. I just .. thought they were pretty, I guess. They're pretty spectacular in set though, I must admit. Bought the pouches as pencil cases for upcoming lessons, have stuck with the Tribal one cause it's ridiculously cute :D !

On a random note, it's damn good to be closely related to me. My sister is always damn excited when packages come cause she'll just wait for me to choose my favourites then swoop in and ask sweetly, "Can I have this/ these/ your firstborn?" then boomz 1/4 of my parcel is gone LOL. She looted the Gold Triangle print set since I favoured the tribal one. Oh well, can always loot it back from her when she's not looking I guess LOL. No la actually that's not exactly possible; her room is a well organized fortress. When you take something, she'll just .. KNOW. She's evil that way lol. HI YVONNE DON'T KILL ME PLS #TROLLOLOLOLOL



Currently looking at educations loans and all that jazz. Really excited to go back to school, but obviously dreading the shitload of debt I'm about to step into.

Aiy okay, look out for an upcoming sale on Nakedglory tomorrow ! Hmkay ttyl !

Raindrops keep falling on my head.



Chilly flea on Saturday. It rained lightly for a few hours straight so thank you if you dropped by in the chilly weather just to get a watch from me <3 !

Spotted a few people wearing my watches! This is a really old one from over a year ago! Treble in Black in one of the old frames, which I completely LOVE. Striving to find similar ones to bring :D ! Also, there's a loyalty discount for regulars! Wear your Nakedglory to the flea to get $2 off your new purchase (: !




Shaun and his girlfriend, Jasmine, dropped by to accompany during the flea! As is customary (for me, anyway), I'll always treat whomever stuck it out with me til the end to a good meal. Last week, I had a kick-ass meal with Edward at Shokudo (their standards have really gone back up; Will blog about it on my next trip there), so this time, I brought them to Itacho at Ion. It was Shaun's virgin trip to Itacho LOL. Prior to this, he'd heard me rave about Itacho non-stop so suffice to say he was curious.



I really like the wasabi there! It's not weak and bland at all; I love a good wasabi kick. My wasabi mix is usually equally parts wasabi and sauce, so it turns into a paste / thick dipping sauce of sorts. Maximum kick is how I like it :D !




Octopus Sashimi (not bad!) and this Avocada & Soft Shell Crab roll, which was creamy and filling. Quite liked it!




Stuffed Baked Crab. This is seriously good! It's basically filled with sticky rice and stuffed with chopped mushrooms, crabmeat and awesomeness. Oh and some sort of creamy sauce that's just barely there, but brings it all together fabulously. It's only $6 for one of these, and it'll fill you up quickly. Must try!



My favourite part about the Itacho menu is their super unique sushis. My absolute favourites are: Squid leg (pictured above), Dorsal Fin (LOVE THIS), Soya Salmon and the Seared Kobayashi Beef (pictured below). You gotta try out the Sea Eel sushi too! It's a long-ass piece of eel, approx 20cm long, no joke :D ! Sorry I didn't manage to take more pictures of the sushis, I was starving ;P



Star of the meal: Seared Kobayashi Beef sushi ($4.80 each on sale price). It's topped with a little garlic and the beef just melts in your mouth. Soft and that marbling @_@ .. completely amazeballs. Try this out if you're ever there!

Other good stuff: Prawn Tempura ($5 for 3 pieces), Crab Chawanmushi, Unagi Don bowl.

So far, I've been to Itacho at Bugis (Meh this branch's food is not good at all), Ion and Jcube. Last one's still my favourite. Always consistent with the quality of food :D ! Ion was pretty good too but my brother says the Changi one's the best. Once I try it out (and let's face it, I'm a big Itacho fan so I probably will anyway), I'll let you guys know ^_^.



Wild Ones Geometric Pullover
(paired with an upcoming gem-encrusted necklace)

Hmkay to end this off, I had a short 1.5h long shoot before the flea. The turn out's looking real good; I'm starting to love last-minute shoots cause' it really forces you to deal with whatever cards you're dealt. It was raining and thus that seriously limited the spaces we could shoot at, but we made it work. Thank you once again Lynn for being so patience and awesome to work with ^_^!

Hmkay gonna start working on replying emails soon, thank you all for your patience! I don't usually reply emails over the weekend but I'm gonna try to do so to cut down on the overlapping ones. Stay tuned for a massive sales post as well, probably going to shoot pics over the next few days I hope :D ! Hmkay ttyl ~

Thank you all for the amazing response for these printed drawstring rompers. They looked fabulous and were of F21-quality. So proud to be able to bring them in :') !

Hmkay I really have to run to the flea now, ttyl!

Where is the line you do not cross?

It's a little late I know (understatement, of course), but I'm packing for the flea and a shoot tomorrow so I can't sleep just yet. Recently, this has been weighing heavy on my mind but I've been hesitating to blog about this issue as there'll probably be nasty backlash.

I'm a shoppaholic. Always have and always will be, but I also own a webstore. As such, I've been on both sides of the coin and can I just say that FUCKING HELL, people need to be a lot less shitty when it comes to online shopping. I know that it's a faceless exchange, but seriously what happened to courtesy and manners? And while we're on that note, what the FUCK happened to common sense? I know that as a shopper, when your parcel goes missing, your very first conclusion is that:

1. FUCKING HELL THIS SELLER IS A SCAMMER.

Followed closely by:

2. FUCKING HELL SINGPOST SUCKS

3. FUCKING HELL THIS SELLER IS A FUCKING SCAMMER!!!!

As a seller, I know the rate of missing parcels is relatively low, but in the past 3 weeks I've had 3 go missing. Out of 112 parcels sent, 3 is a small number but WHAT THE FUCK OKAY SINGPOST?! 3 is small number but 3 is also an unacceptable number. Out of these 3 parcels, none have been recovered. I call Singpost to investigate, all they will say is that "Okay we will check it out and get back to you 3 days".

3 days later, no word from them. Meanwhile, I grow several beards. I call them up again and they just say, "Sorry we can't find your parcel.". The fuck am I supposed to do now? How the fuck am I supposed to tell my customer that sorry your parcel has gone missing and Singpost basically sucks ass? It's the only fucking way I can post. If I were to own an electric donkey and perhaps all the time in the world, I'd hand-deliver the parcels. As it is, I don't have the time (nor the donkey) and there is no other delivery system in Singapore that isn't crazy expensive. Singpost is a monopoly. Is there anything else that needs to be said here?

A few people have asked me this on formspring:

"Yoko help! I sent out a parcel and it got lost and now the customer wants to report me. What do I do?"

and I always say, there's nothing you CAN do. You can report it, but the odds of it coming back to you are like 2%? As a precaution, I ALWAYS video the mailing process. Always. It used to be enough but now EVEN WHEN I SEND CUSTOMERS THE VIDEO SCREENSHOT OF THEIR PARCEL BEING MAILED, they still think I somehow ~scammed~ them. Where is the logic here? I can provide an actual VIDEO of your parcel (with a clear view of their address, mind) being placed INSIDE the PO box + me closing the deposit drawer, which means your parcel has been mailed and is (literally) out of my hands. Even with this video as evidence, they can still somehow conclude that I did not mail out the parcel. I have video evidence and yet, somehow, people can still convince themselves that it was a hologram or something.

How does that not suffice, may I ask? What am I supposed to do now? Should I hold up a newspaper with the date on it like in kidnapping videos to show that the video was presently shot?! Seriously guys, help me out here. Realistically though - should I implement a registered-postage-only rule across the board? How else am I supposed to ensure Singpost doesn't keep looting my watch parcels?

Someone actually freaking sent me an SMS and said this to me (I fucking shit you not):

"Sorry but I feel really disappointed with your services, its been almost a month and nth happen. Not gonna recommend this blogshop to my friends. Scam people of their money."

Actual reaction:





Seriously. Offended BEYOND words leh. How can people be so illogical? It's out of my hands! I can't do anything?! Most ask for a replacement parcel which isn't possible. Why should I send another parcel when it's not my fault that it didn't get delivered cause Singpost is what it is? How is this fair to any seller?! We try our best to have the parcel sent out in a timely manner. Properly sent too, mind. Anti-ripping poly mailers with sticker stamps and return-address stickers and yet all we get is accusation after accusation.


Urgh sorry for the rant, but this is getting out of hand. Perhaps I really should make registered postage compulsory. But seriously though, where the fuck are my parcels? Is there a postman out there wearing like 30 of my watches or something?! Seriously ):<<<<< !!!

Rar okay rant over. If anyone has any feedback/solutions/suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Also, I'm going to be at Scape Bazaar tomorrow, feel free to drop by and check out the new outrageously gorgeous designs. There's 3 that I really really really love - a set of ombre faces, a super interesting maroon face and a shimmery blue one. See y'all tomorrow!

Hmkay ttyl I have to wake up in like 6 hours and I haven't even finished packing GGBALLS KTHXBAI

Public Garden x Singapore Heritage Festival





Nakedglory







Csquare




Plain Vanilla Bakery







Lcube






Little House of Dreams





When I was Four






Katrina Alana






Murdoodles



The Little Dröm Store



Swiss Army Fries




And a smattering of other good stuff. Here's what you missed if you didn't drop by the fabulous Public Garden Flea this weekend ! Seriously good stuff, there was a lot of booths I didn't manage to photograph cause I couldn't leave my mine too often, but it truly was one of the better fleas I'd been to.

I'll update this later with snippets of info (if I have any) of the booths (: ! On a side note, went to the clinic and spent $430+, my heart hurts as much as my wallet. Also, I went to get a Cervical Cancer Vaccination shot (Guardisil), cause' I'm of age and cancer runs pretty rampant in my family. So why not, right? Better safe than sorry, cliche as it may be.

Gaurdisil is a 3-shot process. You'll get your 2nd shot approximately two months after your first, followed by the third shot 6 months down the road. I'm petrified of needles cause a) I have no balls and b) I have no balls so I was just trying not be a giant pussy when she shot me lol. I just sat there quivering in silence LOL how noob right T_T.

That said, my left arm is ached like a little bitch for a few hours, now it's just feels quite bruised where she pricked me. The doctor said that out of the thousands that have taken this shot, only about 3 people died due to allergic reactions. Hopefully I won't swell up like a balloon animal over the next few days. If I do, hide my stash! Joking. Kinda.

Also, it's my very first visit to a gynae, who happened to be a guy. I don't quite know how to feel about it. On one hand, your brain knows he's a doctor but on the other, it's like shit some guy I don't even know is going to take a damn good look inside my hooha @_@. It was slightly awkward on my end, but he was pretty professional about it so *shrugs*

ANYHOO(ha #SELFLOL), thanks a bunch to those who dropped by (: ! Really appreciate the support you guys T_T. That said, ever since I spruced up my display, I've been getting a lot of offers to set up booths and stores/stalls here and there. I was offered a small space in town and I have to say I'm damn tempted. It's my chance to say "YES I OWN A STORE!". It's a freakin' dream come true, something I can cross off my bucket list, y/n? But I'm about to start school, so I'm obviously pretty torn. Oh well, just something I'm seriously considering. Do support me if I do go about doing it okay T_T!!!

Hmkay I have to run now (literally). The boyfriend is making me run around cause he "wants" to lose weight. Quotation marks are there simply because he basically inhales whatever food is set down in front of him -_- .

Alright, ttyl, will be replying all emails by tonight!

P.S - LOL okay I realized a combined post about a flea market + gynae visit is kinda fucked up HAHAHAHA okay I'll move the gynae parts to the next blogpost okay #TROLLOLol
