pulled my usual houdini, and escaped to new york for the weekend. there was so much i wanted to do (and so much i was dying to blog about), but i ended up doing none of those things ha. oh well, there’s always next time. i did manage to grab quite a few yummy bites with my pal ernest, who always knows every yummy restaurant (in both ny, and montreal). a standout would have to be kin shop for a really quaint atmosphere and delicious thai food. sunday morning, we had yummy dim sum, which came out to a mere 27$ for a 4 person feast?! i also indulged and saw jay park + dumbfounded in concert. just melissa, myself and 1 million fainting, smelly, crying american teens.

i’ve realized, a lot of the time when i blog, i’m in a horrible mood. mostly because i find blogging quite relaxing; its like a cultivation of self and allows me to take a breather for a minute (or 3 hours, same difference) and get lost in the treasure trove of the almighty interwebs. although its sad that most of my friends are going home for the summer, i’m glad that i will get some time to myself to gather my thoughts. as much as this may sound like the myspace bio of a sassy 13 year old, i realize just how important music/fashion/art, and ultimately my sense of aesthetic is to me. i’ve sort-of lost myself in the past handful of months.
moral of story: always surround yourself with those who inspire you, never underestimate how healthy and useful personal reflection is, and lastly, always strive to be better! i hope you enjoy this little collection of items i put together. i just got out of exams, and plopped right into summer school+intensive lsat studying; so putting mind over matter (read: comfort and simplicity) has been working for me lately. ps : happy music follows.
