Since a very early age, I developed a huge interest towards Fashion and specially towards Fashion Photography. I still remember being barely 10 and spending the whole Sunday afternoon cutting pieces from my favourite magazines. Almost eighteen years passed by, and I still have the same habit. I keep them altogether in a folder and I go through every piece at least once a month. Nowadays, I still own a huge drawer back in my mum's place full of those. Every year when I go there for a visit, I take a couple of hours out of my "busy schedule" in order to open it and take a quick look at my treasures. They inspire me and they remind me the person I am.
Richard Avedon's famous portraits, the always pornographic Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts AKA the sculptor, Peter Lindbergh's absence of colours, the intimate Bruce Weber, the sexy Mario Testino, the eccentric Ellen Von Unwerth, the sexual Terry Richardson, the colorful David Lachapelle, Patrick Demarchelier or the celebrities' lover and the always classic Annie Leibovitz. Everyone has a special place in my heart.
Photography together with music are my favourites when it comes to art.

It has been funny to see some of my closest friends becoming members of a Facebook club called "I blame Disney for my high expectations with men". Since we are kids, we are taught that someday around your thirties, an special person will knock your door and you will fall into each other through the art of magic. But what happens if that person never shows up?. Should you stay at home and regret about it or should you start desperately looking for THE ONE by yourself?.

Despite not having started 2010 as I hoped, it seems that things are taking a different direction 14 days later. Yesterday I experienced, for the first time and in a really long while, the kind of feeling you go through when one of your biggest dream becomes true. All of a sudden, I found myself booking what will be "The Biggest and Greatest Holidays Ive Ever Had". The adventure will be starting on March 20th in Singapore's docks.

Still wondering if it is the right time to quit "the magic pills" after taking them everyday for the last 3 years. There are so many things in my head at the moment: Mom's getting some surgery done in the 21st, my sister is not feeling well lately and my flatmate doesn't feel in her best since "the accident" occurred on New Year's eve. Hopefully, everything will get better. I refuse to think that this decade will be as bad as the previous one.
