A great future doesn't require a great past.


Wowie, late post today. I just got back from a family birthday dinner and it got late. But my belly is filled with nice Chinese and dim sum!

I can’t believe next week is Christmas Eve already! I am looking forward and not. Again, December is a bittersweet month with happy times like the holidays and closuring.

And December again made my wallet bleed as in my mind ‘Christmas shopping’ is the right *cough* excuse to spend. One of the things I’ve bought is ‘Haruki Murakami – Norwegian Wood’. I’ve once borrowed this book from my cousin before and read it to page 42 and from that moment I really badly wanted to finish this book! Tho I still have to read 2 books first but heck, I love my new book c:


Ai, een late post vandaag. Ik ben net terug van mijn verjaardagsdiner met familie en het werd een beetje laat. Maar mijn buikje is wel lekker gevuld met Chinees (en niet alleen #39) en dim sum!

Volgende week is al Kerstmis! Wat gaat de tijd toch snel… Ik kijk ernaar uit maar ook weer niet. December is voor mij een bitterzoete maand met leuke tijden maar ook een maand van afsluiting, snik.

En december heeft mijn portemonnee weer flink laten bloeden als ik bij elke aankoop het excuus ‘kerstinkopen’ gebruik. Tja. Ik heb onder andere ‘Haruki Murakami – Norwegian Wood’ gekocht. Eindelijk! Ik heb dit boek eerder gelezen tot pag. 42 en sindsdien helemaal verkocht aan dit boek! Ik moet eerst nog 2 andere boeken uitlezen maar ben heel blij met mijn nieuwe boek c:  

Ha! I have you and I'm gonna read youuuu! Who else have read Murakami's work? 

 One of my Birthday/Christmas present c: a felt bag! I've always wanted a felt bag. 

Fudge cappuccino.  

 So lately I've been clearing out my jewelries and accessories and tiding up my jewelry case. I'm pretty satisfied with this look c; 

 Also, lately I'm keeping a 'dream diary'. Writing down my awkward dreams and maybe to understand it? I don't know its quite fun to write it down lol. 

I'm Feeling: tired

  1. Oh very cute outfit dear, your books looks very interesting.

  2. i LOVE norwegian wood. can't wait for you to finish it! love all your photos x

  3. A very happy belated birthday to you! I love that felt bag. You definitely styled it so well!

  4. Cute pictures and OOTD !

  5. I've seen the movie Norwegian Wood but I have yet to read the book... I assume the book will be amazing though bc the movie was super good!
    The dream diary is also a really good idea... I may have to start doing that too!

  6. Adorable outfit. And I love how you're storing your earrings, something gorgeous and delicate the way it is. I hope this month will be filled with much more happiness before it ends. I'm sure more qill come about not just the christmas shopping and wallet bleeding.


  7. Ik ken de schrijver niet! Ik heb nog het Rode Korenveld liggen, vorige week binnen via de post, ben benieuwd!

  8. amazing :) love it!

  9. Cute outfit, it looks amazing on you! <3 Haruki Murakami is one of my favorite all time writers. Norwegian Wood in particular, is on my top 3 list of books. :D If you have finished reading it, I would really like to recommend South of the Border, West of the Sun--also by Haruki Murakami himself. ^^ And I really like the look of the felt bag, I never thought that they would look this classy! :) Lastly, if you want to figure out your dreams, you can also download dreammoods app. I've been using it for months now and it is so handy. You can also record your dream by speaking. (But I don't know if that really works haha.) What are your plans for the winter break? Did you also eat Tangyuan yesterday or today? ^^


  10. Have an amazing festive season!

  11. I love the title of this post so much. It's the 23rd of December as I read this post and it's amazing that tomorrow is already Christmas Eve! I hope you have a wonderful December 25th! You're looking cute in that outfit! ♡ :-)

  12. Murakami is my all-time favourite author. I have a couple of his books that I still need to read though - I just haven't had the time!

  13. Cute outfit! It'd be perfect for Edmonton! :) I've actually never heard of Murakami before. If that book is good I shall take a look into it!:) Xx

  14. I try and write down my dreams down but whenever i try and remember them i can't D:
    lovely outfit :)


  15. Your felt bag is adorable!!! Can it hold a lot? It looks warm in there, I wanna be inside the bag lol

  16. love the bag!

  17. I really like your felt bag! The small, dark grey bit is a nice contrast on the bag.

    I haven't read The Norwegian Wood, but I did read Murakami's After the Quake, which was pretty interesting. It was surprisingly tragic and calming at the same time.

  18. I really want to read Norwegian Wood too! I love your bag <3

  19. Honestly, I've never read any Murakami books... I bought IQ84 and A wild sheep chase but haven't gotten around to reading them...too many books in my waiting list and time isn't being very friendly so :( but yeah, I get what you say about buying new books even though the old ones are still there :P there's a bliss in that haha

    Latte art is gorgeous *o*

    Love your outfit by the way. I like wearing such style though the weather in here is always so warm... -___-;; sigh.
