I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

It’s that time of year, when the sky turns a few shades of grey and bawls with thick raindrops, swatting down leaves from yellowed trees on their descent. I blame Adele and that bloody song. (Will I get the two days of wistful sobbing back, ADELE, WILL I?) Mornings smell of firewood and wet leaves (a whiff of that gosh-darn PSL still lingers in the tube), uniformed teens swarm the bus-stops, kicking up a cloud of leaves with every gossip and gag, and something in the air commands that you buy a fresh pack of pencils.

It’s back to school time: golden afternoons that last a minute and a half, crazy/confusing few weeks when you crave homework, and a new backpack that go with your new haircut. Coach’s Mount Plaid collection takes me into the season with its nod back to the 90’s – back when ‘homework’ did not mean 10 hours of pixel-shifting while seasons of muffled South Park stream in the background. The quintessential academia silhouette comes in red-and-black workwear plaid – a la Kristen Stewart in American Ultra, with similar attitude and gusto. Best of all, UK.Coach.com is now a fully transactional e-commerce site, which means I can now completely eliminate human interaction over the gift-buying period (win).


Right now, my own Mount Plaid Turnlock Tie rucksack holds a host of camera equipment and notebooks filled with wireframe scribbles and client requests, and I have a feeling it’s going to take one strong coffee and sharp pencil to tackle this ‘homework’ in the next few weeks…

So, excuse me while I go sniff a fresh pack of crayons.


In collaboration with Coach as part of season’s ambassadorship.

  1. I thought I was the only one who sniffs “a fresh pack of crayons”(safer than glue, right?). As I read book after book and article after article in order to find references for my midterm-exam essays (and obviously procrastinating… I blame your awesome blog for this, fyi) I think I would rather do 10 hours of pixel-shifting (if I knew how, of course). At least your awesome images provide me with a colorful break from my black-and-white academic prison. <3

  2. In the second outfit I could overcome the fact that winter time is almost here.

  8. Red is so energizing, even though I don’t wear it myself (just doesn’t look good on my skin tone). But I like seeing it on others, it’s so vibrant! Can’t say I miss homework, to be honest. Crayons and colored pencils on the other hand, I still need to buy those to make good on my promise (to myself, tee hee) of starting to draw again – thanks for the reminder :-)
    Have a fun weekend, Shini, take it easy with them pixels!

  9. Love the red tones. Gets me ready for the winter!
