Movie Review ~ Dark Flight

Today's post will be more on a movie and personal standpoint rather than a fashion standpoint! Why don't let my readers know more about my personal life! My friend and I went to watch a movie called Dark Flight. It's a thai horror movie and let's see how my movie critics skills go to work!

So the plot of the movie would be like any other horror or ghost revenge horror movie. Hero/Heroine miraculously survives an ordeal where everyone else dies and the ghost/spirits from the past comes back to haunt her. Well the movie was in Thai and I really love Thai horror movies! They make some of the best horror or gore movies it must be said. But I was kind of disappointed with this one. It's very predictable and it seems like they didn't show most of the gore or violence. ( Yes I am a very sadistic person ) So yes it was very disappointing for their high standards. They also tried to mix it up with some humor especially with the gay guy but it was more towards lame then funny. Although I did find myself laughing at the lameness. The script too was very poor, it was like all of a sudden two stewardess "died" well we didn't even know they died actually. There was a lack of flow in the script to show the demise of the people on the plane. So on a whole this movie was just bad but the company I had was fun!! Don't go and watch it. Don't even buy the DVD!

After the movie, my friend, Gina, was like "Ryan! Why you so calm one?! The whole show you never show any expression at all!" Well I told her, "I'm a very practical person, I'm more afraid of what's real than what's not. ( To me I don't believe in ghosts ) And I said I was more fearful of terrorists than ghosts." And I would like to tell my readers a story.

Probably a month ago, on a Saturday, my mom and I were attending a church service. When we approached the seats, we saw a bag in front of us. So I instinctively thought OH NO A BOMB! My mom told me to wait maybe someone was reserving the seat. I waited until one Indian couple came and they sat at where the bag was, they pointed at the bag and were also wondering whose was it. So I thought, shit it ain't theirs, it must be a bomb! I told mom we should go to the back because when the "bomb" exploded we would be the first to die. Halfway through service, a suspicious looking person with full beard just walked out of mass. He put on a cap and a sunglasses and was headed for the exits. And yea I was like THAT'S THE TERRORIST. And I'm like panic mode "ON" My mom told me to watch him and suddenly he pulled out a cellphone. HE'S GOING TO DETONATE THE BOMB. I quickly grabbed my mum and followed him I kept telling her he was going to flee the scene before setting off the "bomb" So...We followed him to the bus stop, there he stopped and lighted a cigarette and he just stood there. So for a moment my fears were calmed and we went back for mass. After mass ended, there was still no explosion, so my mom told one of the warden's about the bag and we left. Then we saw the guy there still lighting a cigarette! I was like he's going for the 7pm mass! My mom quickly asked me to take a pic of him just in case. After snapping one, he suddenly moved and was following us. SHIT WE'RE CAUGHT. HE'S GOING TO KILL US! I quickly ran into the shopping mall stood at one corner, hid my phone in my mum's bag and just watched that man went to the MRT. 


Now here are some shots we took in the bus! :)
I look ugly in the two pics :x

Well yea, we were that bored! And yes I need to work on my complexion and I looked really ugly in those dam photos. Don't know why I'm even uploading them T.T Oh and do you guys wanna see what I call a casual outfit? It's an ugly picture so yea. CAN'T SEEM TO GET ANY NICE PICTURES TODAY

Won't be posting that on chictopia or lookbook or even enstyle! YIKES! Anyways I would love to give a big shout out to all my blog followers and readers! I LOVE YOU ALL! <3 byee!

Raglan Anybody?

This will be my second outfit post on my blog! I don't usually wear raglan tees but I decided to wear one for my photos the other day! Raglan tees are very common in my country now and that's one of the reasons why I don't wear it often. I got my raglan tee from Hong Kong and it's very special to me! I bought it using my own money and it was the only thing that was within my budget. HAHA. I can't remembered how much it cost but all I remembered I used the remainder of my money to buy it. 

To me personally, I don't find anything special about raglan tees. To me it looks like a very normal tee just with colored sleeves. Usually raglan tees are worn just by itself. What I mean is, you don't add a second layer of clothing on to it. This will hide the colored sleeves and lose the entire purpose of wearing a raglan tee! 

Raglan Tee - Ice Fire
Jeans - April 77
Belt - ??!!!! ( FORGOT )
Shoes - Ren Ben ( Korea brand? )
Dog Tag - 77 Street 

Also I would like to ask my readers one question! My school is starting in about a week's time and I was wondering whether to go into school with my hair colored like how it is currently or go into school with black hair. Do comment your suggestion in the comments pleaseee!! Thank you for taking time to read this post and god bless you all and have a wonderful day ahead! :D

Dating Tips ~ Boys

So today's post will be for the boys, for what to wear, prepare and do on a date. I might make a girls version of this, if I can :x

So boys, what do you usually wear on a date? Well for me, I have never been on a date. So I can't show you what I actually wore :p HAHA! It actually depends on what type of date you're going. If you're going on a candlelight date you can't be expected to wear t-shirt and shorts. And when you're going for a movie date you shouldn't go and wear blazers.

Outfit 1 - Casual
Head out in a tee paired with your most favorite denim together with a vest and you're all ready to bring your girl out. I like this outfit personally because here the weather is hot and the vest provides a stylish second layer of clothing without making you sweat much. It gives you the edgy-ness in your outfit making you seem like the casual type but yet still knowing how to dress up when the occasions seems right. Not doing too much nor too little for a movie or stroll around town kind of date.

Outfit 2 - Formality with a tinge of casualness 

You want to dress up for a date no doubt about that. But you don't want to overdo it. Girls do get kind of timid when a guy dresses more fancily than her especially on a first date! So what you want to do here is to rock a very casual look just throwing the element of a blazer on top. This gives you the kind of coolness which girls love about boys. Do this only when bringing your girl out to a high end restaurant to dine. 

Well the main idea of the date is to keep it as casual as possible but yet maintain an image of formality. Like I've said don't overdo it. Don't wear suits and ties if possible on a first date. Also wear clothes that fit perfectly, you don't want to keep adjusting a too tight pants all the time or look so slouchy wearing an oversized tee, which will also make you look fat. 

How to Prepare for a date
- Wash up
- Clip your nails
- Fresh Breath
- No crumpled clothing
- Put a little bit of cologne
- Buy a small little gift

What to do on a date
So on a date, what you really want to do is be confident. Act like yourself and nothing but yourself. Make it less awkward by cracking jokes or talk about stuff that both of you like. 
Oh and most importantly, pay for her please. Just for that one date.
You want to be as gentlemen-ly as you can. Don't go there and be some jerk -.-' Girls take every little thing seriously and dating is no small business to them. If you don't score on your date, you can kiss a relationship goodbye :)

A Very Sensitive Topic ~ Looks

So, today I thought I would touch on a topic that is very sensitive to everyone - Looks! So many people naturally want to look beautiful and handsome. It's like everybody's dream right? Correct me if I'm wrong. But well, God didn't make all of us to look beautiful or handsome if not this world would be a boring place. We each have our different unique features that separate us from one another. Some maybe better off than others.

So how do you define good-looking? To every individual the definition of how good a person looks may differ. To me personally, a good looking guy would have to be neat and clean, have nice hair, nice eyes, a nice chin and a very good looking body. ( Sadly I have none of these ) While to me a good looking girl has to have a nice smile, beautiful eyes, nice cheeks, nice hair and nice eyelids. So like I say, you may or may not agree with me but really, beauty is REALLY in the eye of the beholder.

So, how do you look beautiful? Two easy steps. You want to look beautiful, just follow these two easy steps. YES TWO STEPS.

1- Have confidence in yourself.
YES!!! IT'S BEEN REPEATED OVER AND OVER AGAIN BUT IT'S TRUE! YOU MUST HAVE CONFIDENCE TO FEEL BEAUTIFUL! Don't care if people call you ugly or whatever nasty comments, as long as you think you're beautiful that's perfectly fine! But don't be OVER CONFIDENT! Over confidence like I told my brother many times can be your biggest downfall.
So how do you gain confidence? Confidence I BELIEVE is gained through your popularity. To me, when a person like my look, hype, vote or whatever it gives me confidence. Lets face it, how many of you look into the mirror and see your face and say YES I AM BEAUTIFUL. If you do, please PLEASE comment! But for some people, once their popularity reaches a maximum it goes into over confidence mode and yea. Also, very important, you must be able to take constructive criticism in your way. Like for example, if I say hey you're ugly, you can't for the rest of your life keep thinking OH NO Ryan said I'm ugly. NO! Improve yourself, find out where you can improve and work on it :)

2- Do not get jealous
It's important not to get jealous of other people's looks. You can admire them like OMG HE'S HOT!!! But not to the extend like I wish I had his eyes etc etc. If that's the case, you will never be satisfied with your looks. There will always be someone more beautiful than the hottest person you think exist. Unless you think the most beautiful thing that exist is God. Be grateful for whatever you have or whatever you are going to receive, don't go wishing for too much. Because some wishes do come true.

So, you might think that hey looks ain't important! It's more about the character man. Well I can say yea it's true, for a relationship to last it's more about the inside than out. But what makes you want to get into a relationship with her ---- wrong ------ what makes you even want to know her in the first place. It can't be oh because she has a nice heart. NO RIGHT? You haven't even talked to her x.x Like Marvin once told me, before you buy a car, what makes you want to test drive the car? But what eventually makes you want to buy the car?

I know I am not good looking, like many people tell me I'm just average. But I have changed a lot since June 2011. If you ever want to know how I looked in the past, do find my previous facebook account and that's where all the old pictures are. Like my friend yanling said, "Ryan you're ugly, you need to change your specs, work on your hair and fashion style." So I did, I changed my specs, changed my hairstyles and fashion sense! But I am happy with the way I look now, okay maybe needing some improvements but I am pretty satisfied with how I look. So yea, do drop a comment if you feel like you could contribute to this post or you feel insulted by this post ( sorry if you do ).

Peace and God Bless :)

Color Trend - Pastel Aqua

Well the trend right now is pastel colors or really bright and captivating colors, and for today I thought I will do a post about pastel aqua! 

Aqua to me is a very calming and peaceful color and fun. The bright blue really reminds me of the sky, and the majesty of it. 

Well, to be honest, I don't really see many people in Singapore wearing pastel aqua. ( So sad ) Maybe they find the color too bright or really hard to match? Or maybe it's just really hard to find aqua colored clothing? hmmm....

Aqua goes well with neutral colors perfectly. Not only black but white as well. The black really complements the bright aqua shade and gives it a very electric feel to it. White on the other hand gives it a more subtle more calmer tone.

Pastel Aqua would also go very well with pastel colors. Especially colors such as pink and yellow. These really brightens up your outfit, adds a sort of bubbly energy and "color pop" to your outfit! 

Well there are many combinations to go with your aqua clothing. Try experimenting with it add a little bit of red or lavender and see how it goes! Also aqua reminds me a little bit of the ocean so maybe your outfit could be based on the colors of the ocean!

My Shopping List ( 1 )

So Today I thought I would do a more personal post and not really fashion related. As we all know, ( okay maybe only I know ) the Great Singapore Sale is coming!!!! That means SHOPPING!!! And I am already cutting down on my shopping tremendously just to save for the sale x.x ( It's really hard I tell you ) 

So today I thought I might share my shopping list with you! :) The prices would all be in Singapore dollars. I'm not sure I will include pictures because I'm really sucky at it still :x Oh dear

Ryan's Shopping List
1. Zara Bag
Can't really find the picture of the design I wanted and I didn't snap one at the store. But I'm really eyeing that bag. It may be a little too big for me but it's design is really nice for a hippy student schoolbag. Once I buy it I'll show my readers <3

Cost - 129

2. Zara Jeans 
Once I saw it I fell in love with it. Not really understanding why, but I just loved the fit on the mannequin. I know it will probably not fit me the same but I'm going to have it altered. Also the white color was something that was very unique, it had a certain glow to it! That's why it's number two on my list :)

Cost - 99.90

3. Zara Leather Jacket
I have been eyeing a leather jacket for a very long time. One of the main reasons I don't buy it is because the weather here is way too hot to wear it. Also if you don't wear it often enough the cost of one leather jacket would then be very unreasonable! I mean 199 for something you don't wear much? Like x.x! But But my love for leather jackets makes me just want to buy one. I have been searching the whole island for a RED leather jacket and finally at Zara I found it :)
This is not the only design that I like. I quite like a brown leather jacket and there is one usual black one that really appeals to me! We'll see how it goes! :)

Cost - 199

4. - Zara Tees
You all must be thinking, hey! HOW COME YOU'RE FIRST FOUR ITEMS COME FROM ZARA? Well it's because I don't own anything from zara!!! Yes that's true, I have been into zara shops 100 times but I have never bought anything from there x.x So this time around, I must!!! I really like zara tees now, the material is way better than those of my topman ones! But the cost is more expensive that's why I have been sticking to topman. This time, I plan to not only get plain t-shirts but also graphic t-shirts! Not really a fan of graphic t-shirts because many of them just have lame pictures on it in my opinion. :/ But I really like this graphic tee from zara! ( AGAIN ZARA ) but yes! I really like it!!! <3

Cost - 29.90 - 59.90

5. Topman Skinny Chinos
If you have another store in Singapore that sells skinny chinos as skinny as those in Topman DO DO RECOMMEND THEM TO ME! Been looking all over the island but just can't find anything that rivals the topman chino. ( I'm looking for a cheap bargain too ) For 73 dollars I must say it's pretty worth it! The only thing that has hampered my attempts in getting a chino is that whenever I go shopping there's never a size 28 and length 30 x.x !!! LIKE NEVER?! Okayy maybe sometimes there are times when I see size 28 but it's like NEVER in the color I want :( which is mustard and burgundy!! :o

Cost - 73

STAY TUNED FOR PART 2 OF MY SHOPPING LIST!! Will there be a part 3? :o

Asymmetrical Skirt

Asymmetrical skirts are just a beauty. When a girl knows how to wear the skirt well, it just really blows you away. The beautiful design and uniqueness of it really makes it a must have for a girl for this spring and summer.

ONE IMPORTANT THING! When choosing the skirt, choose the skirt that enhances the certain body features you want others to see. You don't really want to wear something that shows off certain aspects of your body that you're afraid of showing right? Choose the size that fits you well.

Personally, I would love these skirts to be in pastel colors as it's for the spring and summer. But really, choose a skirt which complements well with mostly what you in your wardrobe so you won't have the pain to go get another top to make the look work. 


These skirts are very easy to dress up in. As seen from the above pictures, just one simple plain top and the skirt with a pair of heels and you're ready to go! Complete your look with accessories!

Style Essentials - The White V-Neck

In my opinion, I believe that the white v-neck tee is one of the most important items to have in your wardrobe. It's perfect to match with anything with any color. Be it black jeans to pink jeans white will always go well with anything. This basic v-neck can be worn plainly just by itself to give it a very casual look or paired up with blazers or jackets. Actually it doesn't really have to be a v-neck cutting. It could also be crew just as long as the plain white design is there.

Well as you might be wondering, why the pictures I used don't feature me in my white v-neck is because I LOST MY WHITE V-NECK -.-' I seriously don't know where it went :x so yea.

1. Paired with blazer and jeans
This model is in a white v-neck with a black blazer and a pair of red denim or chinos. 

This is a type of semi-formal look which is very popular. This replaces the very traditional and sometimes too formal shirt and tie. Relax a little and chill out for going to clubs in this simple but yet stylish way to impress the girls. If you don't have a black blazer there is always other color alternatives such as nude or earthy tone blazers. But these would go better with a darker pair of denim.

2. Paired with a Leather Jacket
This is a very casual but rocking way to dress for your Sunday's heading for town. But sometimes the black leather jacket can get very common. So there are other alternatives to this. The leather jacket can also be either brown or red. A red leather jacket would go better with a mustard color pair of denim and a black supra. :)

3. Paired with a Shirt
There is nothing more simpler than going into your wardrobe, digging out a matching shirt and pants and wear a white tee under it.  

4. Add accessories to your outfit.
Aviators and chains make great accessories to complete your outfit. The white v-neck can be worn plainly with your accessories and a pair of denim and you could already head out to town! This shows how versatile your white tee can be. Ranging from a semi-formal look to a very casual look the white v-neck allows you to choose who you want to be for the day. And this is why every guy should own one. ( I will find it back don't worry! )

Mr. Preppy

So this will be my first post for the blog. ( well second ) But it's the first fashion post! So it still can be considered the first right? I have a weird sense of typing, it seems like I'm talking to myself so please PLEASE bear with it!

This looked is styled with
 1. Navy Blue Cardigan from Ralph Lauren
 2. White Dress Shirt from Dad's Closet ( LOL )
 3. Black Tie from Z ( Local Store )
 4. Red Stretched Skinny Jeans from Topman
 5. Scouts Shoes ( SERIOUS )
 6. Big Rim Specs from ????

Well as you can see, I'm still new to blogging and this picture and words is so pissing me off. It just doesn't go where I want them to go!

Anyways, this is a very preppy (???) type of look. I tried to add a little color into this look opting for my second cardigan which is this one instead of my black one. Also I decided to spice things up with some color to contrast the blue with some red. And as for you all know, white and black always goes well with anything and they turned out well here too! As for the shoes, I really didn't have a choice, these were the closest I could get to a pair of nice oxfords. So yea :D

Anyways thank you all for reading this post which I think by the way makes no freaking sense LOL! Well it's my first post :x
