{CRYSTAL'S CLOSET}: HARBOUR


Whenever I look at the gigantic ships parked peacefully at the harbor, I can't help but let my mind wander: where are these ships from, what journey have they gone through, where are they going to next, etc...They remind me of what my dad told me when I was young: "life is like the a ship on the ocean. There will be days with blue skies and beautiful sunshine, there will also be days with lightning and thunderstorms. If the ship keeps sailing, eventually it will arrive at the destination". After more than 10 years living away from home, all by myself, now I understand completely what he said and feel what he felt.

Life is never meant to be easy, it's meant to be lived. Sometimes it's tough, other times it's good. With every obstacles I've gone through, I learned my lessons to make me become stronger and stronger every day. There were times when I was so frustrated with the situation, I kept asking myself a question that has no answer: "Why are there so many troubles that I need to deal with?". But if God was to ask me "Would you want to be a girl who always depends on other people, and has no survival instinct?", the answer would always be No.

I'd love to live my life like a ship on the sea. A ship that faces many storms on the ocean, but still bravely sails through, never giving up. A ship that knows how to enjoy its journey and appreciates every beautiful day it has. Then, I imagined myself as a captain on board. 

Once arrived at the destination, I would totally change my captain's uniform into this crop-top, floral midi skirt, put on my favorite pair of stilettos and start dancing.

{CRYSTAL'S CLOSET}: GLITTER GOLD


Being born with a huge passion for dancing and singing in my blood, I've never stopped myself from getting up to the stage to perform whenever I have a chance. My first singing performance was when I was at six years old. My mom bought me a very expensive sequin dress just for that occasion. She wanted me to be the star of the night. Since then, I've become addicted to everything sparkling: the LED light, the sequin balls, and the shiny dance costumes. I'm so obsessed with the kaleidoscopic crystals that I even used nearly 3000 pieces of Swarovski crystals to decorate my dance costume. I filmed the entire process in this video "How to make a dance costume from a simple leotard" in case you want to watch. I know; it sounds insane, but the amount of happiness that the glittery costume brings to me every time I look at it, it's worth it. 

Fast forward 20 years later, a small little girl has now become a big girl in a small world. She still loves dancing, but hardly has the opportunities to perform like she used to. She has a bigger stage to play with now: the stage of life. But, no matter how old she gets, her love for all the glittery, shiny things and her passion will always remain the same. 

If life doesn't give you a stage to perform, create one for yourself. Just like how I stayed at home on Saturday night, set up the gold glitter curtain as the backdrop, and used the camera self-timer to finish this photo shoot of my outfit by myself at 2am.

 The hall way instantly became a runway, and I felt like I was center stage in my neon sleeves cropped top, ruffle skirt and bad-ass gladiator booties.
