Crystal's Closet: Weekly Wardrobe (Ep21)- Awesome get away trip to Vietnam!

Hi guys,

I'm back from a short get away trip to Vietnam! Does anyone here miss me? ;) You'd better!


Talk about my trip later, I want to tell you about my problem first. The past 3 days after I came back from Vietnam til now, this song somehow kept playing in my head. I listened to it when I was on my flight and I loved it. I loved its lyric to be exact. The lyric is so sweet, romantic and touching.



One In A Million
"Other girls don't matter. In your presence, can't do what you do. There is a million girls around. But I don't see no one but you"
That's one part of the lyric which caught my attention and I'm sure any girl who hears this will also "Awww! So sweet! If only my boyfriend would say this to me". That's also reason why we- girls always get fooled by the sweet but empty words. Wake up, young ladies!
I love this song but I need to find a way to get it out of my head. It's like your subconsciousness keeps telling you what to do. Do you have any favorite song that you keep listening to? Anyway, I hope that sweet song cheers you up. 
Here are some quick updates from my last week outfits. 

Monday
From head to toe. G2000 stripped sheer blouse from their latest fall collection and straight cut pants. It has been long time I haven't shopped at G2000 because I found their cloths are quite boring. I love fanciful and tasteful designs while theirs mainly are basic and simple. To my surprise, I had my eyes glued to their latest collection when I passed by their store last week. 
They have improved tremendously in terms of material quality, color selections and styles. Last week, when I re-visited their store, I managed to grab few pieces home. This is one of them. 

Get this look:
Sheer stripped blouse: G2000. 
Straight cut pants: G2000. Similar: Karen Millen 
Belt: Remo Tuliani (similar)

Tuesday
Another G2000 obsession and I just couldn't wait for another day to wear them regardless it was repeated look. When I wore this pairing- dark purple blue shirt with white pants and accessories to my office, most of my colleagues loved it. Perhaps, it's because of the strong contrast colors combination as well as the sophisticated yet simple style that pulled it off.

Thursday & Friday, I was super busy and rushing to finish all of my works before I called it a week and flew back Vietnam for a weekend. Even the trip was really short but that was one of the best weekends to me so far. There is nowhere else better than home. 

I arrived Hanoi in the evening and it took me another 3 hours drive to my house. Exhausted but I was very excited and happy. The first thing I did when I got home was to look for my nephew and to snuggle him. He smiled when he saw me and that made my entire day. 

Saturday. 
We went to the beach that closes to home (about 20 minutes drive) in the afternoon. My dad, my brother went swimming and my nephew wanted to follow too. He was so happy when he got chance to play with water and he kept laughing out loud. Cuteness overload! 


Outfit for the beach: Basic tank top, pleated Hi-Low skirt and Floral bikini underneath.
Sun bathing by the beach. The weather, the sun were perfect on that day for my sun tanning.




Braided hairstyle and natural makeup. 



Camwhoring with my friend Carmen who followed me back home. We both forgot to bring our bikinis and managed to grab new ones at the airport for only S$18.90. Did I say they are branded bikinis? I did.


I also took this chance to snap lots of photos with my cutest little human being. He wasn't willing to do so because he wanted to swim again and I forced him to take photos with me, lolz.




Smile



Look at that chubby cheeks! 


I want to kiss that cheeks everyday. 

I think he got annoyed because the aunty was trying to harass him. :D


and he tried to push my face away. 


Finally! A good shot of us after many attempts. 

The trip wouldn't be complete without having fresh seafoods for dinner by the beach.


Super fresh and yummy steamed prawn. 


Flower crabs.  


And my all time favorite food: Cockles. 

What a life! If only I could do this everyday. 

On Sunday, my best friend came to pick me up for manicure at her favorite nails salon. It's a Must that every time I go back Vietnam, I have to get my nails done. Their skills, speed, quality are by far the best. Not to mention, it's dirt cheap please!!!!



Where to find this set of nails with full extension, gelish and crystals for only S$50 in Singapore? It usually costs me S$100+ or more. 

That was it! My short getaway trip back home. Less is more! It was short but it was all I needed to de-stress myself, relax and recharge physically, emotionally and mentally. 


Managed to get 1 bowl of beef noodle (Pho) on the way to the airport. 

I used to not appreciate this dish so much because it's too common in Vietnam and I'm a rice- eater, I don't like noodle that much. Only after I live abroad for almost 10 years, there is one thing I always miss the most is "Pho". If you travel to Hanoi, this is the first thing you have to do before anything else: eat a bowl of Pho. No matter how many Vietnamese restaurants here in Singapore are trying to make one, the taste isn't just the same. That's why we just have to keep going there for a bowl of Pho :)

Anyway, enough with the foods topic. My stomach starts making noise now and I need my beauty sleep. It's freaking 3am! Why the time flies so fast?

Another new week is coming and new month is here. I hope you guys will have a great start and will achieve your goals. For myself, I'm gonna have a super busy weeks ahead but I'll try to talk to you again soon in the next entry. 

Before I end this blog post, let me share with you something beautiful. Watch the video!

I told you! This song is haunting me! I hope I won't dream about it tonight. 

Bye!
Crystal
