BOLD EXPRESSIONS

"To me, clothing is a form of self-expression - there are
 hints about who you are in what you wear."
- Mark Jacobs



Here's a toast to something a little different. They say never forget your beginnings, ever wonder why this is called 'The Faceless Style'? Drawing inspiration from my squiggly past, but of course with an intriguing twist, I present to you something 'up close and personal'. Who doesn't love a little mystery. Nothing more mysterious than the inability to see the windows to one's soul. And in order to solve the mystery, it's all in the details. Focus on the little things my dear: an expression of ideas from the simple pieces that breathe life into an average outfit.

THE DRIVE

'Because successful individuals approach success
as a duty, obligation, and responsibility - and even a right!'
- Grant Cardone


The drive for success consists of a persistent powerful passion of commitment. There is a natural disgust that I contain towards the thought of a mediocre life. Yet I cannot fathom how someone can be so committed to something. I have yet to find 'someone' to commit to, as well as a 'career' to commit to. The idea that to become successful, you have to commit to it 100% is easy to comprehend, but nonetheless easier said than done. All my life I've never had to commit to anything except to my family which is not upon choice and thus easy. So then, tell me, how does one commit to something by choice?

BLANK SPACE

  "Make it simple, but significant."
- Don Draper


It is indeed a rare occasion that for once my over-thinking mind was a portrait of blank space. I had not a single vision to write about, no burning knowledge to enlighten nor empower you with in hopes that you leave this page inspired. I guess it is to my own comfort that for once my congested mind is not a complete chaotic mess, but an empty slate of nothingness. In saying that, ironically I came to some epiphany for this article: Simplicity.

WANDERLUST

 Wanderlust (n.) /ˈwɒndəlʌst/: A very strong and irresistible
impulse or desire to travel the world. 


This is the year of travels. It's now or never. With my law degree starting now and internships next year, studies won't permit me any other time. Even Mama Chen advises me to travel now, for most of my friends are still single and we can experience travelling the 'single' way. This year so far, only two months in, I have already done China, Taiwan and Indonesia. However I do hope to leave the Asian continent to go further as I have finally gotten over my plane phobia that has haunted me for all my life. And above that, I hope to do more travelling alongside my friends as it opens up to a whole new experience. Here is the compilation from my adventure with them in Bali, I hope this inspires you to explore the world as well, and to find yourself in the process.
