First, let’s quickly start off with an announcement. Rhapsody Monday will be posting twice a month instead of every week from now on! As many of you may know already, Yico and I are living very far apart from each other (she’s on the other side of earth!), and both carrying different lifestyles and routines. It has become difficult to upload new contents that meets our expectations every week, and for that reason, twice a month seemed reasonable for us to manage. But this also means we each will have more time to devote into one post with better contents. Hooray!
Pink has always been my favourite color, and for some of you who know me, my wallet is pink, school binder is pink, and my 3DS is also pink… I happened to stumble upon at this pink wall located on King St. E in Toronto on Internet, and couldn’t help but decide to come here for a photoshoot.
This flower printed dress is an item I bought in Gap Kids. Their size ranges from XS to XXL and XL fits perfect for me. Many items in Gap Kids can be fit as an adult size, and unless you don’t tell your friend where you got it from, nobody can guess they are designed for kids. Plus, most of the times, they’re much cheaper than the adult clothing! Although, I gotta admit, it was pretty embarrassing to ask to try them on while you’re surrounded by kids and parents.
It’s pretty tough to find a bright and cheery place to do a photoshoot in a city with so much marble, concrete and grey. If you find any pastel photo walls around the city, let us know!

My life in Shanghai is pretty simple, work from Monday to Friday, and hang out with friends on weekends. We usually go brunch/coffee, and exhibition or gallery. Hmm, I realized that I have not upload outfits post for so long, I gonna do one this weekend, so stay tuned! I am planning to travel to Korea in late September or October as my best friend just got accepted to a university. Super excited to buy their cosmetics !!!
Earlier in May, I went to an exhibition at Long Museum @ West Bund. It called “Nothingness is nothing at all” by Olafur Eliasson. When my friend told me about this, I was like the name is so cool and bought the tickets online intermediatly (first impression wins! The fact is that I was right, the whole exhibition was way beyond brilliant.
Olafur Eliasson, is the sculptor of light and space. He is talented at capturing light, and is able to match with the space. The transparent simplicity and experiential nature of his work has built Olafur Eliasson’s reputation as one of the world’s most accessible creators of contemporary art. It’s unbelievable to see how light moved, connected, separated and finally disappeared.To me, I felt like I was in outer space. However, the concept is trying to tell you, everything can be unreal, but art is always real.
Currently, his (new) installations are at Chateau de Versailles in France.
“His art is driven by his interests in perception, movement, embodied experience, and feelings of self. Art, for him, is a crucial means for turning thinking into doing in the world. ” Yes, I totally agree with this, art means for turning thinking into doing. It was my honor to get this opportunity to see his works.
