I’ve been to five weddings all my life and three of the five happen to be Indian, lucky for me, I love Indian weddings, the colour, the costumes, the energy, the love, it’s really beautiful. For those who know me know i’m obsessed with all things Indian and Middle Eastern (i’m aware they are completely different), there’s just something foreign and intriguing about the cultures that lures me, speaking of which, I should really brush up on my arabic, I barely remember the alphabets now, it’s been awhile since college.
This last wedding I attended was the wedding of a close family friend Shane’s wedding to her lucky groom Rahul. Here are some behind the scenes shots I took over the course of the three days in Phuket, Thailand.
This post is dedicated to you Shaney.

So Georgetown Law held their Barristers’ Ball on Friday night and the theme was The Roaring Twenties. Honestly I wasn’t even planning on going since every month or so I have this need to go to New York and it had been like 6 weeks since I last went. BUT, after realizing that everyone was going I changed my mind cuz I do have FOMO. With so little time to prepare I decided against going with the theme, and really what would I do with a flapper dress after the event anyway? Luckily, I brought my S. Nine dress which I love to death and actually had quite a ball at the ball.
I also made it to my 9:30am bus to New York the next morning. Double thumbs up.
New York never disappoints when it comes to food. Our friend Lauren is a real foodie (check out her blog here), and she took us to Fish, where you can have an entire lobster with sides for US$22! Amazing!
She also recommended me to go to the Oyster Happy Hour at Maison Premiere (my new favorite place) in Brooklyn, and man it was good. Their HH runs from 4-7pm Monday to Friday, but I would suggest to get there before 5pm. They had 20 different types of oysters you can choose from, all for US$ 1 each! They also have amazing cocktails too! Apparently they’re famous for their Absinthe cocktails but I didn’t get to try it as I thought it’d be a bit much at 4 in the afternoon…
Another amazing place I went to this trip is Luke’s Lobster (so good that I went two days in a row). Their lobster rolls are to die for. Wish we had a place like this in Hong Kong! I had the Taste of Maine, which included the lobster roll, crab roll and shrimp roll, but I think the lobster is still the best.
To end the meal, we went to Momofuku Milk Bar and had the cereal milk soft serve. It’s seriously the best, not too sweet and the cornflakes gave it a nice crunch.
Here’s a half selfie to end my post.
What I wore: Gap Jeans, A Peace Treaty Scarf, Stuart Weitzman Boots, Celine Classic Box.
I’ve been in LA for 3 days and I’m already prepared to ditch my entire suitcase and dress like a beach bum. Found these jeans by Carmar at the Abbot Kinney LF Store. It’s seriously the most comfortable brand I’ve ever worn. I haven’t worn flared jeans in years and I bought these and walked out the store wearing them.
Sweater from South Africa, Carmar jeans, Rainbow sandals
I can’t get enough of Venice Beach:
